At Ancerre Designs, we are passionate about our handcrafted bathroom furniture. We believe you deserve uncompromised quality. Therefore, our goals are to deliver quality products that will make you happy.

Bathroom furniture at Ancerre Designs is meticulously handcrafted utilizing traditional woodworking techniques. We handcraft each piece of furniture with pride, using only the best material and techniques available. This level of care makes them pieces that are to be cherished for a lifetime.

But a single question remains: What exactly is 'Quality' in the realm of crafting bathroom furniture? Below we will share some insights of how our pieces are crafted. Our hope is that you understand that not all bathroom furniture is created with this level of care.

Hand Selected Woods

The process starts with selecting lumber of the highest grade. Like a chef heading to his or hers favorite local farmer's market to choose quality ingredients, our artisan heads to their favorite lumber mill to hand-select each piece of lumber - each piece of which must meet our strict criteria.

Once the pieces have been chosen, they undergo moisture testing and acclimation before we craft them into our bath furniture. This ensures that the pieces of lumber will create quality furniture that will meet our uncompromised standards.

Furniture Grade Construction

All products from Ancerre Designs bath are constructed with solid wood and thick plywood for our box construction. We Do Not use MDF (medium density fiber wood) or particle wood on ANY component of our bath furniture. MDF and particle wood do not withstand moisture or wet environments, which make them incomaptiable in the setting of a bathroom.

Be wary of companies that state that their vanities are made of all solid wood frame -they are misleading you. Although they want you to believe that their entire vanity is composed of all solid wood. Having a face frame made of solid wood does not equate to an entire cabinet made of solid wood - they conveniently forget to mention that their box construction material is MDF or particle wood with veneers. Do your research and ask each company what type of woods they use for each part of their cabinets.

Solid wood & Hardwood Doors

We utilize only solid wood & hardwood (plywood) with real wood veneers for the doors of our bath furniture. In order to be cost-efficient, some companies will fail to mention that they are using MDF or particle wood for their doors. At Ancerre Designs, we use only durable solid wood and hardwood to endure everyday use.

Dovetailed Drawer Boxes

Ancerre bath furniture is handcrafted by skilled artisan. We utilize the old woodworking tradition of dovetailing, as we believe that is how a strong drawer box should be built. We DO NOT use staples, dowels or any locking hardware for our drawer boxes. Yes, a dovetailed drawer box takes a lot more effort to construct - but we believe you deserve a time honor tradition how a strong drawer box should be built. Our drawer boxes frame are made of ONLY thick Solid Wood - we Do Not use MDF, plywood or particle wood with veneers to cut cost & time. At Ancerre Designs, a quality product is more important than saving cost and/or time.

Furniture Grade Finish

Our bath furniture is finished with a proprietary multiple step finishing process to ensure a durable finish that will be water resistant, light resistant (UV), moisture and mildew resistant. Ancerre collections are finished with a satin smooth matte finish (excluding our wall mount vanities) – we do not use a high gloss finish, as it appears overly shiny when in contact with light. Our paint finish is very laborious and requires many days to achieve a durable & rich finish. Each coat we apply must be dried then sanded and another coat of paint is applied and this process is repeated many times. We do not use Nitrocellulose (NC) lacquer paint that are commonly used for mass produced vanities. NC paint is susceptible to temperature changes, scratch easier, cracking, color change & lacks depth. There are companies that use glamour images that looks great online, but upon seeing these products in person you will notice that their finish lacks fine details, depth and richness. Once again, do your research and ask each company what type of paint that they use & send you a high-resolution close-up image of their products.

Leg Levelers

All floors are leveled in a ideal world. But in reality, most floors are not. After all of the effort you have invested into your project, the last thing you want to do is put a shim underneath vanity legs to level it. So, our bath vanities with legs are equipped with adjustable legs levelers that are inserted into the legs to make these adjustments.

Honey Comb Packaging

To ensure when you received our beautiful artwork in one piece, we took an extra step to use the best packaging material to minimize damages. We use honeycomb packaging because they are structurally stronger than standard corrugated (cushioning properties). We are the few companies that package our vanities & countertops separatley to minimize damage. By packing the vanity and countertop seaprately you will reduce the weight when moving to the desired room (imagine trying to lift a vanity & top already attached upstair!). In addition to our honeycomb packaging, we wrapped our vanities with a bubble wrap poly cover and insert a thick layer of Styrofoam sheet on all sides and top to add another layer of protection.

Standing Behind Our Workmanship

Ancerre Designs takes pride in our workmanship and believes you will love our products! All of our products are backed with a three-year limited warranty. We find it strange when a company talks about their quality but only can back it up for one year – It makes you wonder: why? We understand you have many choices to make and we believe you deserve quality that will last!
