Bathroom cabinets provide the ideal way to organize essentials in an easily accessible manner. From toiletries and towels, to cleaning supplies and more, they keep everything within easy reach while being easily stored away.
Bathroom cabinets designed for durability can withstand even the toughest of bathroom environments with ease, due to their construction of particle board, plywood or medium-density fiberboard.
Designs and styles to meet every aesthetic
Louvered cabinet doors add visual texture that draws the eye. Furthermore, their gaps allow airflow through them and help remove excess moisture that builds up over time in food storage cabinets.
Louvered doors feature horizontal wood slats similar to window shutters. These beautiful doors pair especially well with Bohemian, Asian zen and Scandinavian style kitchens and complement simple design features like white subway tile backsplashes.
Pros: These doors add visual interest; are ideal for cabinets located near radiators or laundry rooms that require ventilation, such as cabinets near radiators; fit well into a rural aesthetic that celebrates rawness and organic elements; may catch more dirt/dust than other cabinet doors; are more expensive. Cons:
Pocket louver doors are great ways to save floor space in areas such as laundry rooms or home offices where square footage is limited.
Beadboard is a type of wood paneling featuring wood planks with small indentions (beads). This textured look can be used as wainscoting, an alternative to flat-front cabinets and in other spaces where an eye-catching texture is desired. Available in various widths and thicknesses, beadboard can easily be cut to fit many areas in which it may be installed.
Beadboard sheets make the installation process easier; wood glue works best. Before applying it to cabinets, ensure the surface is free of any finishes that may inhibit adhesion of adhesives to it.
Beadboard cabinets may seem cumbersome to install, but they will add tremendous value and appeal to potential home buyers. Beadboard cabinets are also great if you have limited funds but want your kitchen to feel modernized; traditional or cottage-style homes may even benefit from having beadboard installed!
Wall-mounted cabinets offer an elegant way to store bathroom essentials. Also referred to as medicine cabinets, these pieces of furniture come with traditional designs and styles that blend in well with any contemporary decor. Perfect for keeping toiletries, hair products, sunblock and toothpaste within reach at all times!
Installing a wall-mounted cabinet requires using a stud finder to locate and mark all studs within its installation area, followed by using a concealed hinge jig to guide drilling of holes for hidden hinges, followed by driving two and one half-inch screws into those same studs to anchor it all down.
If your cabinet has a heavy base, it is recommended that either professional assistance be sought or follow manufacturer’s instructions when attaching support braces for additional stability. Otherwise, this is an easy home improvement task and if DIY installation is not your cup of tea then your kitchen or bath remodeling company’s design-build team is always there to assist!
Freestanding cabinets are often constructed of sturdy wood such as pine or oak. Other materials, such as metal and bamboo are also widely available. Some cabinets feature natural finishes while others may be painted or stained to add visual contrast or provide storage space for linens or dinnerware. While most cabinets feature doors, there are some models with open shelving suitable for these purposes.
Installing ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets from a reliable cabinet manufacturer is straightforward, with comprehensive instructions provided that show how to fasten them to walls using toggle bolts for safe installation.
Freestanding cabinets take up floor space and may limit your room layout options due to not being attached to walls, and may make cleaning underneath more challenging if there’s no toe kick support. But they make an eye-catching room divider and provide additional storage for less-used items.
