When it comes to remodeling your bathroom, the bathroom cabinetry that you choose is going to make all the difference. The cabinetry that you choose will depend on the size of your bathroom and how much storage space you need. Here are four ideas for bathroom cabinetry:
- Exposed Leg Cabinetry: Installing cabinetry that does not reach the floor, but instead has exposed legs makes it appear as if the cabinetry is free standing. The benefit of this is that it is going to make the bathroom appear larger since it exposes the space underneath the cabinets, which gives off the appearance of more floor space. Of course, this leaves less storage space, but you won't need it if your bathroom is already large and you can extend the cabinetry down the whole length of one wall. You can also use storage baskets for underneath the cabinetry.
- Built-in Vanity: Another idea would be to install cabinetry that has shelves that extend up the wall that frame the mirror. This provides you with a built-in vanity. You can use the shelves to store makeup and other things that you use when getting ready in the morning. You can also either have the shelves open or closed. This is great if you have a small bathroom, as well since you won't have room elsewhere for a vanity.
- Frosted Glass Doors: The cabinetry that you install can also have frosted glass doors instead of being entirely solid. The benefit of this is that it makes your bathroom space appear more open and airy. If you are going to do this, though, you should have enough cabinet doors that will give off the open look instead of a small, single drawer that won't make much of a difference.
- Changing Extension: If you have a small, narrow bathroom, changing the extension of the cabinetry is a great idea, especially if you want more enclosed storage space. You can have the cabinets be thin where the door opens and have the cabinets extend out further where the sink and mirror will be since you won't need as much floor space here. This also gives the bathroom some unique, interesting detail in the way that the surface top turns and extends as the cabinets underneath do.
