Question

Old but elegant bathroom vanity need ideas


Dear all, please see this picture..

Do you think we should replace the whole vanity with a white one, or should we just replace the countertop and keep the cabinet (as it has matching light green color pattern)?? I was thinking that maybe by repaint the cabinet (and replace the accessories), it should give it a nice "new" look and then replace the countertop (with a light color granite one), but wife feel that we should just replace the whole vanity with a white one..

My concern is that a new white vanity might not have the same height as the old one, plus if it looks too contemporary it would not be consistent with the current "classic" look..

Thoughts or comments? Thanks!

New counter top, maybe some updated hardware and paint if she prefers an all white look. I say go for it.

I second the idea of "new countertop, hardware, accessories, paint it white.

Why replace a functional,adequate item ?

Hmm wife's concern is that if we don't replace the whole thing, then later on if we "need" to replace the cabinet then the new granite countertop will also need to be replaced (since it's "glued" to the cabinet)?? Is that true? If we replace the cabinet few years later could we still keep the new granite countertop? Thanks!

Yes it is normally glued to the existing counter.

But with the way Granite is cut and polished you could easily cut/ polish the old counter from the underside if AND WHEN she decides that you need a new vanity.
