If you are planning to remodel your bathroom and changing out the cabinets, you have much to consider. There are many different types of cabinets from materials they are made from to their type. To help you decide what would work best below are two tips to help you make the choice of what cabinets to install in your bathroom.
1. Bathroom Cabinet Wood Materials
Wood is the most common material used to make bathroom cabinets. Cherry is often used, which can make your bathroom look elegant. Cherry is a dark brown with red undertones. You can apply finish to cherry easily because the grain is even.
Maple cabinets are another option. You will find maple in a creamy-white or white. On occasion, you may find reddish tones in the wood.
Oak cabinets can be white to reddish in color. You can easily see the grain in oak, which gives these cabinets interesting patterns. Over time, you may start to see streaks of black, yellow, or green in the wood. Hickory wood is available in a variety of colors from a creamy white to solid white to dark or reddish brown. The grain is interesting looking as it runs up and down the wood in different types of patterns and sizes.
2. Types of Cabinets
You can purchase a freestanding cabinet that you can mount to the wall or leave it unmounted if you prefer. This will allow you to move the cabinet in a different area if preferred.
There are bathroom cabinets that include a sink, which are known as vanities. The sink is installed on top of the cabinet. The actual cabinet has storage underneath it and is also used to hide the plumbing fixtures in the wall. You can ask a plumber, however, to install plumbing fixtures that are much less noticeable.
Wall cabinets are another option if you need extra storage space. If you are hiring a builder to remodel your bathroom, they can build the cabinet within the wall so that the cabinet will be flush with the wall. This makes the bathroom look much more uniform.
Ask the builder to also install a cabinet to hold your towels, washcloths, and other items. This cabinet can also be installed within the wall. Make sure you choose the right size for your cabinets as when the job is finished -- this is not an easy change to make.
Talk to the builder you hire about this information and they can go over this in many more details.
