Stylish and Practical Bathroom Furniture – Turn Your Bathroom From Chaotic To Calming
With the bathroom the focal point of the house when it comes to getting ready for work and going out, it is no surprise that it is easily cluttered with everyone’s favourite products and pampering essentials. While it’s usage may be large, the bathroom is usually one of the smallest rooms size-wise and typically has the fewest storage solutions installed. Add this to the constant stream of people in and out and it’s easy to see how the bathroom quickly turns into a dumping ground of wet towels, makeup, cosmetics, toiletries and pampering products. This build up can make the room seem grubby and disjointed. From toothbrushes and toiletries, to electrical shavers and hair appliances, just a few things left out will overcrowd surfaces and create a sense of chaos in what should be a calming, restful haven.
If this sounds like you bathroom, then it is time to take action. By introducing some simple storage solutions, there will be no excuse for forgetting to tidy away hair and beauty daily essentials. From integrated cabinets to boxed shelving erected on the walls, here are a few stylish and practical furniture suggestions, to take your bathroom from chaotic to calming in no time at all.
Wall Mirror cabinet – A mirror cabinet is not only a great storage solution, if you pick the right one it can also be a central decorative feature of the bathroom. Mirror cabinets have a reputation of looking rather tacky, but this is not the case for many modern designs. With a wide range of shapes and sizes, Bella Bathrooms have a fantastic collection of contemporary mirror cabinets, to suit the décor of most bathrooms. Tidying away everything you use daily in the mirror, behind the mirror itself, is a practical way to make space.
Tall cabinet – A tall cabinet has the potential to be a central feature, especially in large bathrooms where you may wish to have two standing cabinets together or in separate areas. Tall cabinets are definitely the way to create the most storage space, so they are very practical for bathrooms shared by a large group of people. Choose from standing versions with plenty of shelves, or mounted tall cabinets are another option if you don’t have much floor space available around the walls. A tall cabinet serves another purpose than just providing a neat place for everyone’s toiletries and towels – it can also draw the eye upwards and make the room seem taller. Mirrored tall cabinets are also available, which in addition will make the room appear wider; a 3-in-1 piece of bathroom furniture.
Cupboard under the sink – As we crave more space and less furniture and clutter in our bathrooms in this minimalist period, a cupboard or shelf under the sink- sometimes known as a washstand- is an impressive way to de-clutter. Washstands come in all different varieties, with the option of a shelf or a cabinet door, and using different materials including wood and glass. They are an extremely attractive storage solution, however the problem is they mostly can’t be implemented without installing a new basin, so maybe one to keep in mind for the future.
Open shelving with wicker baskets – Wicker shelving and baskets are widely available and is a very popular choice for bathroom furniture. Some people don’t want an extravagant vanity unit, and prefer to keep it looking neutral with an affordable wicker option. These come in short and tall varieties, and again there are many options from draws to open shelving, depending on whether you prefer the products you are storing to be on display or not. Some people like to have open shelving made from a sturdier material, then place toiletries in wicker baskets that can easily be removed to search for products. If you find yourself with too many shelves and not enough toiletries to fill the space, then you can always buy decorative pieces, flowers or pebbles or a rolled up towel to brighten up the unit.
