Bathroom cabinets these days don’t just serve as storage options (although this is important, of course). No, today’s cabinets have a more extensive role than that - they can also compliment the whole design of your bathroom furniture suite.
A large mirrored cabinet, for instance, can make a bathroom look roomier and more spacious thanks to its reflective properties, while a mirrored cabinet framed in the same finish as the rest of the bathroom furniture (whether wood or glossy coloured laminate) can provide a neat balance to the whole room and finish off the décor beautifully.
Illuminated bathroom cabinets
Then again a mirrored cabinet with new backlit LED lighting can provide a bathroom with a relaxing ambiance (we’re thinking spa-type environment here) which has never before been available due to the limitations of previous lighting technology with its hitherto glaring incandescent lighting. Admittedly fluorescent lighting provided the ambiance but it’s a lot more costly than LED lighting to run on a long-term basis (and it doesn’t have the smart wave technology).
Tall bathroom cabinets
Vertical cabinets have the ability to make a small bathroom look taller since the height of the cabinet draws the eye upwards towards the ceiling. Meanwhile wall hung cabinets also provide clear wall space underneath, allowing the eye to roam easily, making a small room appear larger and more spacious than it actually is (a must for en-suites).
Functional bathroom cabinets
Gone are the days when a mirrored cabinet was simply that – a storage place with a handy mirror on front. No, today you’ll find mirrored cabinets with electrical points for shaving, magnifying mirrors for close inspection of those pores of yours, and sensor screens so that just waving an arm will switch on the light (meaning that when you’re not in front of it the cabinet the light will be turned off and happily your utility bills will be lower).
Bathroom cabinets for storage
Yes, mirrored cabinets are excellent for hiding away those toiletries you’d rather keep out of sight and, importantly, away from prying little fingers. Indeed some cabinets actually come with child-proof locks (while others have soft closing mechanisms that the grown-ups appreciate).
Don’t be tempted though to go overboard on bathroom storage and buy too many bathroom mirrored cabinets to display around your bathroom. It’s best just sticking to one wall for cabinets otherwise your bathroom could start to appear a bit over-crowded, especially if it’s a small en-suite or cloakroom sized room in the first place. Try and find storage nearby instead.
Wall hung bathroom cabinets
To make your bathroom appear larger than it is, use bathroom wall cabinets to keep the clutter out of bathrooms. The need for bathroom storage has never been greater, with the amount of lotions and potions available on the market growing, the days of having just toothpaste, soap and shampoo have gone for good.
The added advantage of bathroom wall cabinets is that they can be installed at a height to suit you, so if you suffer from a bad back just install the bathroom cabinet at a height where no bending is required. The freedom of installation is also good if you have young children in the house, just install the bathroom wall cabinet at a height where you can be safe in the knowledge that your medical consumables are out of harms reach.
Non-comformist bathroom cabinets
Happily you’ll find you can get a mirrored bathroom cabinet in just about any size and shape these days which means large bathrooms don’t look out of proportion with a tiny rectangular cabinet stuck in the middle of the wall and small bathrooms don’t look swamped.
Some cabinets also come with additional shelving for storing toiletries which don’t seem to fit anywhere else in the room. And, let’s face it; any storage space in our bathrooms has to be grabbed at.
Whatever your needs though we’re sure you’ll find something suitable from our extensive range here at Bella Bathrooms.
