Bathroom Vanity. Saturday , August 18th , 2018 - 21:26:52 PM
A solid wood vanity with veneers has a wood construction base but then it is covered by a veneer which is a thin decorative covering of fine wood applied on top of the wood (or MDF). It is used to improve the aesthetic of the wood but making it more consistent. Veneers also allow more variations of wood grains and colors.
In my personal experience, I ordered 2 vanities when the manufacturer was switching from wood with veneers to MDF with veneers because of the cost savings. Although they said the veneer held up better on the MDF. Anyway, I have one of each type. On the outside they look the same and nobody would ever have known the difference except for the fact that I have 4 small dogs who just won't stop marking territories. All I do is clean up pee but I love them dearly and my husband doesn't want to cut off their 'you know whats'. Anyway, because of my personal sitution the MDF is a poor choice. The corners of the vanities have been constantly pee'd on and the MDF vanity is now swollen with curled up veneers. The wood vanity shows no damage from pee. Please note the MDF vanity looks great where it wasn't pee'd on.
An MDF vanity with veneers is a Medium Density Fiberboard. MDF is made up of very fine particles of wood that are refined and mixed with waxes and resins that glue the particles together then it is pressed into a boards that are laminated with veneers. MDF works great with dowels but doesn't work well with screws. Some argue that formaldehyde that is used in the gluing process leaks into the room unless the piece is sealed well. There is really no way of knowing if the MDF is sealed though. These vanities mostly came from China or other overseas countries. MDF is also more susceptible to water damage. Steam showers next to an MDF vanity probably isn't a good idea.
