There are two main types of bathroom cabinets – wall mounted and freestanding, and the best choice for you will mostly be determined by the available space in your bathroom and your storage requirements.
Wall mounted bathroom cabinets
If you have a small bathroom, a wall mounted cabinet will maximise space and keep the floor area clear. Bathroom wall cabinets come in various designs including tall cupboards, mirrored cabinets and wall cupboards with glass or wooden doors.
Mirrored bathroom cabinets combine storage and a mirror into one unit and are a popular choice for modern bathrooms and en-suites. They come in various sizes and styles, and some incorporate energy saving LED lights, touch sensors and shaving sockets, offering both an aesthetically pleasing and practical storage solution. A mirror cabinet that’s positioned high up on the wall ensures that medicines etc. are kept out of harms reach from young children.
Tall bathroom cabinets are typically divided into two separate compartments and incorporate plenty of space for spare towels, toilet roll and toiletries. There’s a couple of shelves in each cupboard so you can keep everything neat and organised.
Freestanding bathroom cabinets
A freestanding bathroom cabinet is best suited to a big bathroom, and you could even create a run of cabinets along a wall to add plenty of storage space, which would be ideal for a large family.
Freestanding cabinets are available in modern and traditional styles, as well as tall and slimline designs. They can easily be positioned anywhere in your bathroom, offering more flexibility over wall mounted bathroom cabinets. A freestanding cabinet is also easier to install than a wall hung design, plus the wall needs to be able to take the weight of a cabinet and its contents; something else you may want to bear in mind.
