Tips for Buying the Right Cabinets for Your Bathroom

by Elias Deukmajian | Bathroom Remodel

Any changes you make to your home require some decision making, which can be exhausting and tedious, especially if you have a tough time nailing down what it is you’re looking for. This can be especially true of bathroom remodels, but let’s break it down even further; choosing a cabinet or vanity for your bathroom alone can be a huge task, involving many different decisions within.

In this article, we’ll take some time discussing why it’s important to put careful thought into your bathroom cabinetry, as well as provide you with some tips for buying the right cabinets for your bathroom. The task might seem small, but there are a lot of factors to consider. So let’s get started.

Why It’s Important to Put Forethought Into Your Design Choices

You might be wondering why it’s important to spend any extensive amount of time choosing a bathroom cabinet for your bathroom, and there are plenty of reasons why you’ll be glad you did. Here are just a few things that come to mind:

  • How well your cabinet will hold up to moisture in a small space that tends to accumulate plenty of moisture
  • How well your cabinets will hold up to routinely direct water contact
  • What material the cabinets should be for the purpose of longevity and style
  • How well the cabinet choice (and adornments like color and hardware) will go with the rest of the bathroom design, or with your home design all-together
  • How accessible the cabinets will be for each member of your family, or for each individual who will be using the cabinet/vanity area
Like we said, it’s important to put some forethought into your bathroom design choices, because in a few years you won’t want to have to go through the process of finding another cabinet all over again.

What to Consider When Choosing Bathroom Cabinets

Hopefully you aren’t overwhelmed already, but if you are, here are some helpful tips of what you should consider when choosing bathroom cabinets:

1. The Quality and Craftsmanship of the Cabinets

Chances are, you want your bathroom to look nice, but you also want something that is well made. This not only adds to the style of the bathroom, including details in design, but it also adds to the durability of the furniture piece.

2. Durability of the Cabinets for a Bathroom Environment

As we said before, the bathroom can be a tumultuous environment for certain furniture pieces – particularly wood pieces if they aren’t designed, manufactured, or treated properly. Your bathroom cabinets should be able to withstand consistent, somewhat excessive amounts of moisture and water.

3. Accessibility and Convenience for All Bathroom Users

Not all bathroom cabinet designs are user-friendly for children who may not be able to reach certain areas, or for older individuals who may not be able to bend down too far. It’s important to consider how well the cabinets will work for everyone who lives in your house; in other words, how functional will they be? Additionally, the more people who live in your home, the more storage you’ll likely need – just a thought!

4. Aesthetic Appeal and Cohesion with Your Home Design

The cabinet design you choose should flow well with the rest of your design, or should at the very least be something that excites you. Basic might be just fine, and ornate might be more of your deal; whatever the case, choose something you’ll love to see every morning.

5. Pricing and Affordability as it Pertains to Your Budget

In any remodel project, budget is what tends to restrict our choices the most; therefore, it’s important to establish a budget right from the beginning, and stick to it as best you can. It will keep your stress at bay and help limit your options.
