The bathroom is one of the most used parts of the house and usually the smallest too. Unlike kitchen and bedroom, most bathrooms have limited space thus design is very important to make sure that every square foot is utilized without compromising the style. The practical solution to this problem is to add bathroom cabinets. Bathroom cabinets are commonly seen as part of the bathroom unit called vanity. Vanity is composed of wash basin set into a counter with a bathroom cabinet beneath it. The purposes of bathroom cabinets are to provide adequate storage for stocks and items used in the bathroom and maintain the aesthetic appeal of the room. It is a common practice to keep plumb, toilet brush, sponge and other cleaning materials out of sight inside the bathroom. Even though it is totally normal to have these in the bathroom, we don’t want our guest to see them. That being said, we hide them under the sink inside the bathroom cabinets. That way you are confident that your guest uses your bathroom and admire how beautiful the cabinet is. Storage is also very important in the bathroom. We stock our bathroom with toilet paper, washcloth, extras shampoo, soap, and other toiletries. Bathroom cabinets keep them organized and still within the reach. Can you imagine running out of toilet paper while you are doing your business and there is no stock inside the bathroom? That will be a weird and definitely awkward scenario.
Now we know how bathroom cabinets are important to our daily lives, let’s discuss: What are the things we need to consider in choosing bathroom cabinets.
- Composition. It is important that we understand what our bathroom cabinets are made of. Unlike Kitchen cabinets, bathroom cabinets are more prone to get wet and water is the main cause of warping in cabinets. For bathroom cabinets, it is advisable to have them made of plywood and not particle board. Though particle board nowadays are very effective and affordable, plywood offers durability and less susceptible to water, thus making it a better choice compared to particle boards. MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard is also used in bathroom cabinets. It is similar to particle board but MDF is denser. As Plywood made cabinets are higher in price, MDF is also a good option as long as you take time and make sure to seal your bathroom cabinets.
- Color. It is a general rule that light colors make space looks larger. That is the reason why most bathrooms with limited space have light colored bathroom cabinets. Bathroom cabinets, being a prominent item, can greatly influence the feel your bathroom exude. Choosing a color for your bathroom cabinets, you should also consider the flooring. It is common to have a combination of light and dark. That means, if your flooring is dark, you should consider having light bathroom cabinets and vice versa.
- Style and Design. It is common to interchange style with the design but it is actually different. The style is concerned about the visual look or the aesthetic value of bathroom cabinets, while the design is about its layout and functionality. Design dictates if the cabinet will have shelves and/or drawers, and how much of these will be included. Most small bathroom cabinets use shelves while larger bathroom cabinets have space for drawers. The style is the look that will complement other items in your bathroom. If you are looking for a modern and slick look, you would want to get shaker bathroom cabinets. If you want a traditional feel, you can choose the raised panel. These are just a few; there are wide ranges of style for bathroom cabinets to choose from.
- Affordability. This is a big chunk of your decision. Prices of bathroom cabinets differ from one manufacturer to another. The brands that we carry and recommend are Diamond, Homecrest, Huntington Brass, Omega Cabinetry, Aristokraft Cabinetry, Waypoint Living Spaces, Crystal, Zline Kitchen and Bath, and Decora.
