RTA (ready to assemble) vanities: any experience good, bad or ?
Hi everyone. I would love some feedback on RTA (ready to assemble) vanities/cabinets that you may have had. Pros and cons? Suggestions of companies/brands to recommend or avoid?
I need to replace a small, 24" wide vanity cabinet in our teens'/guest bathroom. I have "champagne taste on a beer budget". I would prefer a white painted finish and a plywood "box" that are commonly used in the RTA vanities vs. the thermofoil and particle board that you normally get in the big box store white vanities. (Our current builder grade vanity's particle board sides are decomposing( from water from washing the floor?) so I am especially leary of particle board in a bathroom.)
I want to go with white since the bathroom is so tiny already, (I feel a darker color would just make it feel even smaller) and the existing floor and wall tiles are bluish-gray and white. The existing oak vanity never went very well with the gray!
I'd love to see pics of your white vanities if you have any!
(BTW- I have already ordered a granite vanity top in "mission white" (white with gray)from Lowes, so the vanity has to be able to hold up under a heavy countertop!
Also--any thoughts on vanity height? I did notice quite a variation among the rta vanities regarding height. This bathroom will be used by teens and guest now, but perhaps by little children in the future. (Grandkids, new owners, etc.)
Thanks for your help.
