Sometimes it’s the most practical piece of furniture that really makes the biggest statement in your home. Take, for instance, the humble bathroom vanity cabinet. This piece may be as practical as can be, but it can also punctuate your bathroom with style and set the tone for your entire day as you stand before it to get ready in the morning. Here are the elements to consider when designing a custom bathroom vanity cabinet.
As fun as it is to choose or customize a bathroom vanity cabinet based on appearance, there are practical matters that you must consider first (although functionality doesn’t have to come at the expense of appearance!).
Your main practical consideration should be storage. Storage considerations will vary depending on the size of your family and the type of bathroom. If the bathroom in question is a two-piece powder room, you probably don’t have to worry too much about storage. You may want a small cupboard space for things like extra bathroom tissue or soap, but you likely don’t have to plan for much more than that.
For a larger, main bathroom, however, the considerations will be different, especially if you have a larger family. Think about which items you’d like to store in the vanity cupboard—tissue, toiletries, towels, hair accessories, makeup—and plan your space accordingly. And it’s not just the amount of space you need to plan for, but the layout as well. If you’re only storing larger items, like towels or tissue, you can make do with a large, open cupboard space. However, if you’re storing smaller items, like cotton balls, hair elastics, or makeup brushes, you will want smaller, more divided spaces to keep everything sorted and separated for easy location and organization.
Once you have the practical considerations out of the way, it’s time for the fun part! Customizing the aesthetic style of your bathroom vanity cabinet can be very rewarding and an exciting experience. The key is to not just think about what you like, but also about what works in the space. Make sure that the style of your bathroom vanity cabinets matches with the style of the bathroom. If your bathroom has a rustic feel, go for a rustic vanity cabinet. If it has a mid-century modern vibe, customize your vanity cabinet to match that look. That level of cohesion and continuity will pull the whole room together for a unified appearance.
The most important consideration when customizing a bathroom vanity cabinet is to choose a design that is uniquely you and uniquely yours. Having a one-of-a-kind piece that no one else has will imbue your home with personality and make it feel like a special place.
