Three Tips For Picking Out Bathroom Cabinets
Few homeowners realize just how much the decision to build bathroom cabinets into a bathroom can alter the look of the entire room. These are large pieces of furniture, and the shape and color of these home features occupy a large amount of “real estate” both visually and physically in a bathroom. That’s why you should always consider these three factors if you’re remodeling with bathroom cabinets in mind.
Set Aside The Budget
For a complete bathroom remodel, the bathroom cabinets are unlikely to be the most expensive investment, especially with so many choices for fixtures like sinks, tubs, and shower stalls. However, bathroom cabinets can still run from a few hundred to several thousand dollars based on your choices! Look at costs carefully, and, if you trust yourself, consider the savings from installing cabinets yourself.
Do Your Homework
Make sure to watch videos and read articles about bathroom remodels, and look at how bathroom cabinet space has been utilized in these modern examples. Find something that appeals to you, and see if you can feasibly work that into your bathroom. At the same time, you have to be realistic about the amount of space you have available. A smaller bathroom must have smaller cabinets.
Think About Your Needs
While you can—and should!—go crazy with finding the look you want for bathroom cabinets, also think about functionality. They are meant to store things, so what, and how should these cabinets store things for you? Do you want or need dividers, or other organizers built into the drawers to help with makeup or medical supplies? Do you want an “appliance garage” for tools like hair dryers or electric toothbrushes, that keep them out of the way? Now that you can have your bathroom cabinets just the way you want it, think about what you really want!
