Bathroom Cabinet Ideas

Bathroom CabinetsLet these bathroom cabinet ideas inspire you to think outside the box as you make your bathroom more functional, beautiful, and convenient. Like it or not, there’s no denying the importance of storage in any bathroom, large or small.

No one enjoys having to shout out a request for more toilet paper, and toting toiletries from bedroom to bathroom and back to the bedroom every morning and evening makes you feel like you’re in a hotel instead of your own home. Even the smallest bathroom needs some convenient, accessible storage space, so let’s look at creative solutions that simultaneously add visual appeal and organization to the space.

Up-cycled Vanity
A garage sale find can become a unique and gorgeous bathroom vanity cabinet that defines the space and offers you tons of storage. Remember those large dressers with attached oval mirrors? A worn-out piece like this can be upgraded with a new mirror, fresh drawer handles, a granite top, and a vessel sink, and suddenly it’s no longer the neighbor’s old dresser but a striking vanity that gives your bathroom vintage charm.

Various types of furniture – cabinets, sideboards, dressers – can be re-purposed as vanities. In fact, this is a trending look and manufacturers are designing mass produced vanities in the style of freestanding cabinets. If you enjoy scouring flea markets, auctions, and yard sales for diamonds in the rough, consider looking for a piece of furniture that can be turned into a storage-friendly vanity. Options for beautifying/repairing a beat up piece include –

  •    Stripping and refinishing the wood.
  •    Replacing the door fronts with cabinet glass.
  •    Installing glass shelving in place of particle board shelves.
  •    Changing out the hardware such as hinges and knobs.

Extra Bathroom Cabinet

If your bathroom has a pedestal sink or your vanity simply does not offer enough storage space to meet your needs, consider adding a free-standing cabinet or a built-in. This is another opportunity for turning an old piece of furniture into a chic bathroom cabinet, but you can also consider having custom cabinetry added to the room. One advantage to this is the ability to maximize functionality by utilizing all available space. Custom built-in cabinets can be designed to look antique and distressed, fresh and modern, or even bold and industrial.


Open Shelving

In small bathrooms especially, open shelving is a great alternative to traditional cabinetry. Clear glass shelves help prevent the room from feeling small and cramped as you add storage options. Possible ways to use open shelving in a bathroom include a set of shelves on the wall behind the commode, a shelf below the vanity mirror, shelves inside the shower enclosure, and shelves on any unused wall space.

One concern about open shelving is that you may not want to both store and display everything that is housed in a bathroom. However, many items – even toilet paper – can be attractively stored on open shelving when you utilize stylish baskets and bins. The inclusion of at least one closable cabinet or drawer in your bathroom design is certainly ideal, though.

A final consideration relating to glass shelving is that it is a storage solution that can give your bathroom a more contemporary look. Glass shower doors are highly popular in 2016, and glass shelving allows you to continue the theme of clean lines and transparent materials throughout the space.
