This guide will help you with basic information and ideas on what you should and shouldn’t follow when it comes to bathroom cabinets. Plus we will give you some info on installation costs and styles.
With so many options for bathroom cabinetry, you might find redoing them a daunting task. But this should not keep it from being fun. So what you have to do is consider your resources. Make sure you don’t get caught between customer bathroom cabinets versus contemporary, maple style, and all that.
According to Meriam Reed the co-owner of DreamMaker Bath and Kitchen in Naples, cabinets affect the look and feel of the entire room’. So with that, you simply have to start working with your style.
Research Bathroom Cabinets
Lenia Pilkonis advises that the first step is to know your own space. By familiarizing yourself with the area, you will then get the better bathroom cabinet outcome you’d want. Visualize what you want to see so you can come up with the best bath cabinets and designs. If you are someone who likes to soak in the tub then get a shelf. There you can place a TV and linen towels to complement it.
You can visit stores for more bathroom wall cabinets and bathroom storage cabinets’ inspirations. One other way is to go through magazines and flip stands. You can check magazines for designs and suggestions. You can then choose from the best and narrow it down to the very applicable option for your bathroom or kitchen size.
But the truth is, it is harder to design a bathroom than a kitchen according to Lenia. That is not only because the space is smaller but because everything you do has to touch either electricity or water. So that may cause drainage and safety issues. With this in mind, you may want to ask help from an interior designer or specialist for your makeovers.
Don’t go beyond the budget
Kitchen remodeling can be really expensive, unlike bathroom makeovers. The cost of a new bathroom vanity cabinet could be around a few hundred to thousands of dollars. So you should try to check for different options to avoid regretful purchases. Check all possible resources so you get to save with deals and discounted products through special events.
You also have the option to install an unfinished cabinet yourself. That can save you but it sure is going to be some hard work for you. You can try to purchase them online but just like buying a car, if you can’t inspect it yourself, then you can’t be sure enough with the buy. So what Lenia suggested is to make sure you use the space and do not overbuy items that you do not need.
Choose your Bathroom Cabinets Style
You can always choose from so many concepts in remodeling your bathroom cabinets and vanities. Lenia classified designing into three categories.
The stand-alone vanity comes in first where it includes a sink and the countertop. The second group includes other bathroom cabinetry items like the over-the-toilet units, hampers, and linen storage. Lastly are the suites or your sets of cabinets that match other fixtures and features.
Go play with your chic or pro side with your cabinets. Go traditional or modern looking, country or European; choose what you want as the possibilities are unlimited. Make sure you do not get distracted by what you see. Your goal is to store your things and never let them go out of your mind. Bath vanity cabinets nowadays are better as they keep innovating with more amenities that come with them such as cosmetic trays, built-in drawers, appliance garages, towels, and more spaces that can be used to hang clothes and more.
Features are not the only things to ponder about bathroom base cabinets and others but also the aesthetic pleasure it brings. Apart from the cabinets, lighting will also give an accent to the area as it helps with the illumination.
One of the things often neglected is the essence of resting according to Bob Giese, a human factor specialist from Kohler. He also said that we have been working too much that we often disregard the importance of resting and that during the times that we go on our home tub, we then have to give our full attention to rest. This is the time we leave our phones off and focus on the invigorating moment.
You can also match your bathroom vanity cabinets with the rest of the house. In this manner, you will have all of them including living room and wet bar furniture looking alike according to Lenia. She also said it is best to make sure you plan ahead of time so you won’t have to worry about future transformations and the like.
