Bathroom cabinets are ideal to add extra storage to your space. Depending on your organizational needs, space and layout we’ve made these four most used types of bathroom cabinets:

  1. Bathroom floor cabinets: This will be your best choice if you have enough available space. You could easily decide to change the layout just by moving it around or you could just swap it out.
  2. Bathroom wall cabinets: When space becomes a problem, usually the solution might be your wall. Wall-mounted cabinets are great to maximize space.
  3. Corner bathroom cabinets: If both your floor and wall space are limited, you might consider a corner bathroom cabinet because it can fit very well your needs.
  4. Bathroom cabinets over the toilet: Since the space above the toilet is mostly unused, it could be a great idea for some extra storage. 

Here, at Unica Concept we understand the importance of orderly space and maintaining a relaxing atmosphere. With this in mind, we offer a lookout for bathroom storage furniture like towel bars, mirrors, glass-panel doors and shelving.

How to choose a bathroom vanity?

Purchasing a bathroom vanity can help you organize redesign way better your bathroom space. Always keep in mind to measure your space before shopping. Depending on your own preferences and style, you are going to choose between bathroom vanities with or without tops. However, you might also be looking for bathroom vanity with a sink, picking it can be fun but always choose wisely. 

If you want to save time and money while getting the perfect coordinated set, we suggest you go with the bathroom vanities with tops. Buying a bathroom vanity with a top gives you the idea of getting both the cabinet and the countertop at once. This way you will save a few bucks that you would spend installing a separate countertop. Below, you get to read our tips when you decide to purchase a bathroom vanity with top.

  • Match Your Fixtures

Vanities with tops may not always come with a faucet or sink. If that’s the case, you’re free to choose. Just remember and try to match other fixtures in your bathroom. It doesn’t mean you have to match all of them but at least try to coordinate your vanity top with the wall or the flooring.

  • Pick the Right Size

This is the time where you should consider your space and get to decide if you want a single or a double vanity.

  • Plan Your Storage

We suggest you start looking at your current toiletry storage and then decide the best way to organize it in a new vanity. So, it should always depend on your storage needs.

What’s the best material for your bathroom vanities?

  • Solid wood bathroom vanities

If the price isn’t an issue, this is the best material you could choose for your bathroom vanities. It is the strongest, most durable material and of course, it will provide you with a natural feel.

  • Polywood bathroom vanities

It is made from veneers of wood glued into layers. This type of material is used in house furniture and it remains the same even in bath vanities.

  • Rubberwood bathroom vanities

They are known for Eco-friendly use. Rubberwood vanities are made from Hevea Brasiliensis rubber tree and they can offer durability.

  • MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) bathroom vanities

This kind of material is compressed using tiny bits of wood. It is not commonly used, but it can be an ideal solution in many situations. It has 30% of solid wood included and its price is lower than the other materials.

Choosing the ideal countertop

The first case we mentioned, was the option when you get the bathroom vanities with tops. Now we have to help you with the second situation, the one when you, somehow, are forced to buy just the countertop. It isn’t as difficult as it may seem, but yes it requires time and patience. 

First things first. The type of material overall. Remember that it will dictate your options such as dimension, colour etc. Next, you should decide, DIY or professional installation!

In addition, consider how they’ll look alongside bathroom vanity, sink, faucet and other details or features. Here we get to list the most popular bathroom vanities materials:

  1. Granite countertops

It is the most popular and desired material for countertops. Granite is a natural stone which offers a dramatic beauty and is known for his uniqueness. It varies in different patterns, colours and styles. Granite requires more maintenance compared to other materials but it is the kind that makes it durable, scratch-resistant and also resistant to heat and humidity.

  1. Quartz countertops

 Unlike granite which was a natural stone, quartz is an engineered stone. It has a clean and contemporary look. It requires less maintenance and doesn’t need to be sealed, it also is the most durable material, but the only disadvantage is that its edge can easily chip.

  1. Laminate countertops

Usually, it is the most practical solution for bathroom countertops. It is one of the cheapest bathroom top materials. Laminate is resilient to cracks or chips but it can scratch up.

  1. Marble countertops

Marble countertops contain different amounts of minerals, but its most common patterns are white and gray or almost black with streaks of white. The disadvantage of this material is that you need a regular basis sealing to prevent it from staining or scratching.

Find a Partner for Your Kitchen Design

If you are feeling confused and you haven’t gotten a partner for your kitchen design Unica Concept is here. The shade matters when choosing gray for your kitchen cabinet colour. If you’re the traditional type, darken it up with a smoky gray. Go light for a contemporary, chic style or a distressed barn wood to unleash the shabby-chic in you. Unlike some other cabinet colours, grays will offer the perfect balance of warmth and neutrality, working well for any size kitchen and style.
