If you’re looking to add function to your bathroom while also improving upon its’ current look but don’t want to do a full-scale remodel which can get extremely pricey very fast, investing in some bathroom cabinets will be the perfect middle ground. Whether you use stock or custom-built cabinets, you’ll be able to use the space in your bathroom more efficiently. If you’re looking to install new cabinets or you want to update and improve the ones you already have, whatever your budget is, there is a way to make sure you get exactly what you’re looking for. These are just some of the benefits of having cabinets installed in your bathroom no matter the size of space of the bathroom.
They’ll Help Save Space– One of the biggest reasons that homeowners add cabinets to their bathrooms is to help maximize the limited space that’s available in a smaller bathroom. Offering storage for things like towels, hair dryers, and other toiletries or even spare toilet paper rolls will reduce the clutter in your bathroom in an instant. Even something like a floor to ceiling cabinet will help make the most of the space available without crowding the bathroom or making the small space seem even more cramped.
They’re Usually Low Cost– Bathroom cabinets are relatively inexpensive solutions when it comes to storage and are available in just about type of model, shape, size and color imaginable and all at affordable prices. This versatility makes them a perfect fit in any type of bathroom as they can fit any color or space restrictions. You can also choose from a wide variety of additional features like shelves, mirrors, steam resistant pads and even LED lighting to make finding things in the nighttime easier to accomplish without waking the whole family.
Practicality– Yes they’ll reduce clutter and save space but from a practicality standpoint, cabinets just make so much more sense for things rather than leaving them strewn about the bathroom or other areas of the house. Various cabinets with different designated materials will help you keep quick access to the things you need every day like bath towels, hair gel, hair dryer or other daily toiletries while spare towels can be put out of sight and out of mind in a different cabinet so that you don’t have to constantly dig around looking for the things that you need.
Make the Small Space Look Bigger– If your bathroom isn’t the best lit, it can look even smaller and more cramped than it may be. If you have an overhead light and light around the vanity you can also add mirrors to your custom cabinets and the light reflecting off of the mirrors will make the space of the bathroom appear longer and larger.
“Floating” Cabinets Can Give Personality– A new trend in cabinets for bathrooms is the idea of a “floating” cabinet. These are mounted to the wall with no legs so it appears to be floating. While there is no functional benefit to choosing this method, it’s gaining more and more popularity due to the unique touch it can provide your bathroom regardless of the bathroom’s existing color scheme and layout. This is a great way to include a more person style into the bathroom without needing to remodel the entire bathroom to make it more personal and welcoming.
Keep the Bathroom Cleaner– Having at least one or two cabinets in the bathroom will open up valuable countertop space and well help the bathroom counters stay cleaner and give the bathroom a cleaner look overall. Clearing up the counter space will also make it easier to wipe the countertops down which will help to keep it clean as well.
With affordable and versatile options that will fit any type of bathroom regardless of color or shape or even the available size to work with, bathroom cabinets will help keep your bathroom cleaner and will also maximize the space available even if the space is limited. Whether you want to infuse your bathroom with more style or want to add cabinets to organize your bathroom better, there is an option for you no matter the desire or the budget that you’re working with.
