You’re probably thinking furnishing and decorating a bathroom is a piece of cake…you just need the tub/ shower, the sink/ the toilet and a cabinet. Picking a bathroom cabinet shouldn’t be that hard and in some cases it really is a walk in the park but when you stop to consider all the different possibilities everything starts to get complicated fast. It’s not just because there are so many different styles to choose from but also because there are many different types of bathroom cabinets, each focusing on a particular detail. So you see, nothing is as easy as it seems, not even selecting a simple cabinet for your bathroom.
Various types of cabinets focus on all sorts of elements like shape, color, storage capacity, maintenance, versatility, materials, proportions, accessibility, etc. Finding a bathroom cabinet that has it all is impossible which is why you need to define your priorities and to figure out what’s most important. Do you want a cabinet in a particular style? Do you prefer a particular material or finish? How will you be using it?
As already mentioned, there are several different types of bathroom cabinets. The freestanding kind is pretty common and popular but so are vanity cabinets and open shelves. Selecting one type over the others is a decision based on a lot of things like the type of sink you prefer, the total amount of storage you need in the bathroom, the overall dimensions of the space, the overall style as well as any extra features you might prefer or insist on.
Modern medicine cabinets can include all sorts of cool and practical features such as mirrored fronts, built-in lights, sockets so you can plug in appliances and even built-in TVs or speakers. They also provide enough storage to keep the counter clutter-free and to allow you to organize all the toiletries and personal things. Open shelves are also extremely practical in bathrooms. They can be installed pretty much anywhere: above the shower head, above the door, under the vanity, to the sides of the vanity and they can even be built right into the walls forming nooks which are great for storage but also for displaying things in.
