You can find plenty of inspirational DIY and designer ideas online, Ply Online suggests making the right choice of materials. Cabinets have the most impact on a bathroom look. 

The days of simply picking out a medicine cabinet and being done with it are long over. There are some questions to be answered before you purchase anything.

For example, what style do you prefer, how you use your space, what is the budget, and what materials for cabinets do you want. The material that a bathroom cabinet is made from, will determine its durability and lifespan. 

Let’s have a look at some of the most commonly used materials used in bathroom cabinets.

  1. Solid wood. Those cabinets are incredibly expensive and while solid wood is a popular choice for bathroom cabinets, it is not the best choice. This is because even the best grade of timber will expand and contract with humidity changes in bathrooms. Over time, this expansion causes cracks and reduces the longevity of the cabinet.
  2. MDF is cost-effective and looks great, consists of composite fibers and small pieces of wood joined together with a resin or wax. It is covered with veneer or painted for a finished look. Still, they are not that great in terms of quality and longevity.
  3. PVC is very cost-effective, yet it looks attractive. It has a smooth surface and can be painted in any color. PVC offers good water resistance.
  4. Plywood consists of multiple veneers of wood glued together to form layered sheets. offers good strength but can vary in quality and thickness. And it is cheaper than solid timber. Plywood will not expand and contract with humidity changes. Plywood covered with veneer is the best option for the bathroom.

Ply Online offers a huge variety of birch plywood suitable for your bathroom cabinets. 

Please note, even budget-friendly vanity, when made with fantasy and love, can make a statement and create a place of recharge.
