Choosing a Bathroom Cabinet

Ensuring you have the appropriate storage in your bathroom is essential when it comes to kitting out such an important room.

With so many toiletries, towels, soaps, lotions, and potions to find space for in your bathroom, which may be limited on space, picking the right storage solution can feel like a daunting task. But there’s no need to worry – we’re on hand to help you find the right piece of furniture.

Think about Size

If you have a smaller bathroom with little floor space, a taller, slimmer cabinet would be ideal. A larger room may benefit from wider cabinets to prevent the room from swallowing smaller-looking furniture. Offering plenty of storage for essentials like toilet rolls, medications, and shower gels, a taller or broader cabinet will be a superb modern choice depending on your bathroom size and shape.

Focus on Materials

Since the bathroom is hot and humid with water being used often, finding storage suited to this environment is essential, especially since your cabinet will habitually encounter water, cleaning products, spilt cosmetics, and more. Some wooden furniture in a wet and humid room can warp or even rot. Popular materials include stone and ceramic, glass, and MDF.


Standing or Floating?

If you don’t have a lot of wall space, then a free-standing cabinet is ideal. You can place it against one of your walls, and because it’s not tethered to the wall, you can move it should you decide to remodel or decorate your bathroom. However, floating cabinets drilled into the wall are more convenient if you don’t have a lot of floor space to deal with. Plus, they can be put in at the ideal height for you and your family, so no one needs to bend down or crouch when looking for something. One of the most popular types of floating cabinets is mirrored cabinets, helping you save more wall space since you don’t need an additional mirror.

Choosing Bathroom Cabinet

Remember Your Placement

As the bathroom is a high-traffic area, you need to carefully consider where your bathroom cabinet is best situated. You need to make sure it doesn’t block the flow of traffic, that it doesn’t get in the way of the door, and that it, and any furniture or plumbing around it, can be accessible for cleaning.


How Much Storage Do You Really Need?

The answer to this question might change depending on how big your family is, how often you have guests, whether you have a second bathroom, or perhaps even if you have a linen cupboard. When choosing your cabinets, think about how much storage space you’ll need – is it just for toiletries, or will you need extra space for medications, folded towels, or appliances like hairdryers and shavers? If you need more storage, a large cupboard cabinet could be ideal, but if you only need the essentials, then a drawer or two might suffice.

It’s All by Design

Once you’ve got the functionality questions answered, you can start thinking about the design of your piece and how it fits into your bathroom décor. Do you prefer a sleek and modern look, or are you someone who likes a more rustic aesthetic? From the natural to the nautical, wicker designs, wood-inspired finishes, or monotone minimalism are all sure to give your bathroom the perfect finishing touch.
