Bathroom Furniture Storage Units Guide
One of the main gripes about modern bathrooms is that they are getting smaller and that there is never enough cupboard space for the family towels and toiletries. Adding extra storage to the bathroom doesn’t have to be difficult, and who wouldn’t like to come home to an uncluttered bathroom instead of one with stuff on every surface? If this is all sounding very familiar then here are some of the key things to think about before heading out to buy some new bathroom storage units to transform the way in which you use your family bathroom, en-suite shower room or downstairs cloakroom.
Storage units come in all shapes and sizes and whatever the space available in your bathroom you’ll be able to find the perfect solution. If you’re struggling for space in a small cloakroom or en-suite bathroom, take a look at the tall and narrow units with drawers, perfect for slotting into a narrow space and providing enough space for each member of the family to have their own drawer. The only challenge will be getting the kids to remember to put their toothbrushes away. If you are lucky enough to have a larger bathroom you can choose from a wider range of bathroom storage, mixing and matching several cupboards from the same range to create a bespoke “fitted bathroom” look.
Style and Colour
White is probably the colour which most quickly springs to mind when you’re looking at bathroom storage units, and there are several advantages to choosing white units. White always matches with other things you have in the bathroom, and never goes out of fashion. Depending on the style though, white can appear quite cold and clinical, and many homeowners prefer to inject a bit of colour into their home. Wood effect bathroom storage cupboards are increasingly popular, as are other colours such as grey or black. When it comes to style, there is a storage unit for every preference from very modern to something more traditional. Browse through the webpages and think about how the items would work with pieces of furniture which you already have in your home, or with showers, baths and other items you are considering buying.
Cupboards or Drawers?
Storage units with cupboards and ones which have drawers offer similar sized storage, and your choice will depend on how you are planning your bathroom layout. Think about pulling drawers open to get to something at the back of the drawer or opening cupboard doors. Is there enough space to allow drawers or doors to open fully? Does having to factor in opening doors make it harder to place other items of furniture? Would it be better to choose a differently shaped unit to make using the bathroom easier? There’s a lot to be said for bathroom planning using a pen and piece of paper, and drawing up the different options to see which one works best.
