Having adequate storage in your bathroom is essential as one often underestimates the amount of beauty products, medicines and cleaning products that one accumulates. Cabinets and shelving are the obvious and practical method for achieving a clutter free space. These together with carefully chosen accessories and appropriately themed décor are key to successful, stylish and functional bathroom design.
Corner shelving and recessed cabinets make optimum use of space whilst not impinging on your precious floor space. Wall shelving and wall cabinets are also great space saving ideas, as they also have no footprint. Cabinets or vanities with mirrors are dual function devices, with the mirror adding a sense of space to any bathroom whilst having ample space for storage. Cabinets under sinks also offer great storage space, particularly for bulky items. Open free standing shelving is great if you have the space, as it adds character to any bathroom.
Careful planning is the key to a functional and stylish bathroom. Talking through your ideas with a carpenter, cabinetmaker and green plumber is a sensible first step. This will help you get an idea what is feasible regarding the layout of fittings, fixtures, cabinetry and storage.
First rate workmanship is crucial when it comes to cabinetry and shelving in general, given that it will be subject to considerable wear and tear in the years to come. This is especially true in a bathroom where moisture can reduce the life of wood products in particular.
Position shelves and cabinets to maximise the functionality of your bathroom. This means having easy access to items that you use on a regular basis with other items stored more remotely for occasional access.
Glass and wood are popular for shelving, with glass accentuating a rooms sense of space and light. Laminates, natural stone, wood and stone resin remain popular for cabinetry.
Neutral colours are the safest bet for your shelving or cabinetry, and will make coordinating other elements that much easier.
Visit showrooms and get inspiration from friends, family or magazines before you decide on your shelving or cabinetry.
