Cabinets affect the look and feel of the entire room, they pretty much set the tone for your bathroom makeover. The days of simply picking out a medicine cabinet and being done with it are long over.
There are as many styles of cabinets to fill your remodeled bathroom as there are colors to paint it. Consider the following three categories. The first is the stand-alone vanity (containing the sink and usually a countertop). The second group consists of all other bathroom cabinetry, which may include over-the-toilet units, linen storage and built-in hampers. Last are the sets of cabinets, called suites, which are designed to match your fixtures and other design features.
No matter the category, you can go sleek or shabby chic with your cabinets, classic or contemporary, modern or mission, glass or glazed. The possibilities are endless.
You have to be careful, though, not to let the looks distract you from the ultimate goal of your bathroom’s cabinetry: to store your essentials. Luckily, today’s cabinets are masters of organization, with more and more amenities like built-in drawer dividers, cosmetic trays, appliance garages (that hide but keep handy things you use every day, like hair dryers and electronic toothbrushes), linen towers and even closet like spaces for hanging clothes and laying out ties.
Another trend is for your cabinetry to take on more of a furniture look, This translates into more and smaller pieces with features like bun feet and raised panels and a preference for materials like dark cherry and walnut. Part of the reason for this particular development may stem from the fact that more and more people are opting to transform their ordinary bathroom into a relaxing retreat.
Another new practice popular with homeowners is matching the cabinetry in the bathroom with the rest of the house. The cabinets in the bathroom match the cabinets in the kitchen, the built-ins in the living room, the wet bar and so on.
