Bathroom Cabinet Buying Tips-5Cabinet Doors, Accessories and Hardware
Consider room size, layout and style when picking cabinetry for your remodel
Buying cabinetry or a vanity for your bathroom is a similar process to buying kitchen cabinets. Before you start shopping, make sure you have a well-thought-out plan for your bathroom renovation. You should identify goals and priorities, with the help of your completed Day in the Life of Your Bathroom Questionnaire and Bathroom Goals Worksheet. You also should have a clear vision of what your new bathroom will look like, after exploring various bathroom designs and layouts and planning out space and storage. Finally, you should have a budget to work with.
Cabinet Doors, Accessories and Hardware
Door style and decorative enhancements drive the look of bath cabinetry. Doors may be flush or have an elevated or inset central panel that can be squared, arched or rounded. From craftsman to modern, a number of door styles are available at every price point.
An assortment of decorative accessories such as posts, pilasters and wainscoting further customize the look. Drawers and doors typically look best when coordinated or identical. The same applies to their hardware, including hinges, knobs and pulls. It's important to thoroughly consider each of these items as an entity before committing. But bath cabinetry isn't all about looks. Consider accessories for ease of use. Mid and high-end cabinetry offer an abundance of features, such as pull-out hair dryer drawers with electrical outlets installed inside doors and wire clothing hamper drawers.
