First, material is the most important thing to be taken into account. As we all know that, the surfacing for vanity cabinet are composed of following items: natural stone, engineered stone, fire-proof plate, painting, glass, metal, solid wood...etc. The base material is the main body of vanity cabinet while it's always covered up by surfacing. Currently, the main base material for manufacturing vanity cabinets in the market are fire-proof MDF which is made by selected wood particles adopting special production technique and it's regarded as "Solid" board. This fire-proof MDF has better water resistance ability than common MDF so it's regarded as First Choice material for high-end vanity cabinet.
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.
If you are looking for something a little bit more modern, one of the hottest remodeling trends is the Euro Vanity. The euro vanity is identifiable by the protruding sink bowl in the front, and downward curving doors. Most vanities are sold as a kit with the sink bowl included. These can also be found as pre-assembled units in the store, or as rta bathroom vanities on-line. While cabinet itself is usually not as deep as your traditional vanities, it still offers storage space below the sink. Most companies will offer 3 basic finishes- white, oak, and cherry, but you can occasionally find some unique finishes if you search hard enough. If you are going for a more modern look in the rest of your house, this is a great way to bring the same design features into your bathroom
