Has your previously beloved bathroom turned into a life-threatening obstacle course? Are you worried that a bathroom remodel to install additional cabinets will cut too deep into your pockets? Well, here are some cost-effective bathroom cabinet ideas to help you get your dream bathroom without getting into debt:
This is an ingenious way to get two for the price of one and create a stunning effect while at it. While solid wood cabinet doors are a favorite for bathroom storage spaces, they might not be as economically-friendly as we would love them to be.
Mirrors provide an extra stunning finish and make even small spaces appear roomy. Proper placement will ensure they reflect any natural light streaming in and make the room seem bright and vibrant. They have the additional advantage of being able to withstand high moisture and humidity, making them a highly durable option and therefore a very good choice in the long run.
This option is not only cost-effective; it can also be used to achieve a stunning display if well arranged. Think of towels neatly rolled up or folded like in 5-star hotels, essential oils, multi-colored candles, cologne bottles and a basket of flowers to give that drab space a spa-like effect. Unlike closed cabinets, these shelves present an open, airy impression that is really helpful particularly for smaller bathrooms. Extra care is needed though to keep the place looking tidy and clutter-free.
Instead of installing countless small cabinets individually, why not choose big enough storage units to run the entire length of your bathroom wall? This cuts down on installation costs remarkably and makes for a neat and cohesive finish. It also provides lots of additional storage space.
Having a wide cabinet will also create room for a double sink which is not only highly attractive but also reduces the need for couples to fight for sink space when running late. When coupled with a large mirror, everyone gets sufficient room for their bedtime rituals and morning routine. Think of all the extra counter space as well and you’ve got yourself a winning cabinet choice.
Think high with wall mounted cabinets
Installing wall mounted cabinets along the upper walls of the bathroom space is another way to save on remodeling expenses. They do not call for as much work as recessed cabinets seeing as there will be no digging into walls or working around plumbing and electrical cabling.
Unlike floored vanity cabinets, floating storage units leave lots of floor room and make the bathroom appear spacious. Cleaning is much easier as there are no awkward corners to hide dirt and dust out of reach. Additionally, in contrast with ordinary vanities which can only rise to sink level, this type of vanity can rise up to ceiling height, if need be.
Push to open cabinet latches
Other than being aesthetically pleasing, this design saves on the extra cost of installing door knobs and future repairs as knobs are notorious for finding a way to detach. The concept is back in vogue and employs the use of affordable hinges that will not dent your budget.
They do not leave unsightly holes on your fixtures like handles do when detached; and in the case of a future remodeling project, there will not be the inconvenience and extra cost of fitting new handles or repainting the old ones. In small bathrooms, they reduce the frequency of small accidents like getting clothes stuck on handles and torn or having children walk into knobs.
Taking the above factors into consideration when shopping for your bathroom remodeling project will not only save you lots of time but will help you choose the most ideal bathroom cabinets even when you are on a small budget.
