Bathroom / February 9, 2018 / Kaya Vincent.
Vanity units, which are essentially bathroom cabinets that sit around the base of a sink, are one of the most common types of built-in furniture. You can have one that covers the sink pedestal or, to make even more use of the space, consider having a 'floating' basin that sits on top of a unit or is embedded into it.
After this, it is a matter of accessorising. Consider buying new curtains or blinds, perhaps adding a new shower curtain or panel, or even putting down a new floor (vinyl’s cheapest). Replacing the mirror and/or door handles can also make a difference, as can seemingly small touches such as the hand towels.
You can use pretty much anything for your bathroom floor as long as it’s waterproof and won’t get too slippery when wet. These days, most people choose tiles (marble or granite look good), sheeted or tiled vinyl (a sensible option if you’re on a budget), or wood-effect laminate.
Freestanding bathroom furniture and cabinets are usually cheaper than built-in, and often offer more flexibility. From full-length shelving units to mirrored wall units, the options are seemingly endless. They also mean you can make use of your walls and the height of your room.
