Bathroom Furniture Buying Guide
Bathrooms are one of the most important rooms in the house. They help set us up for the rest of the day as well as relax and unwind at the end of it. And it's not just baths and showers that can have an impact on how we feel. Bathroom furniture can help transform the whole room.
Whether you have a cluttered family bathroom and you're looking to create an oasis of calm, or you have an en suite that's lacking in storage, choosing the right bathroom furniture sets for your space will help.
Here at The Bathroom Showroom, we're experts in providing you with bathroom furniture ideas you'll love.
What type of bathroom is it?
For cloakrooms, ensuites and very small bathrooms look for space-saving suites like the iflo Trapini or Roca Mini with corner basins, slimline furniture, wall-hung toilets and mirrored cabinets. For larger bathrooms, where storage solutions and furniture is essential, why not take a look at our furniture range which offers the practicality necessary for your spacious bathroom.
Things to consider
Bathroom furniture comes in all shapes and styles, from compact cabinets to wall-hung systems. With so many different types of bathroom furniture sets available it can be difficult to know what to choose – and that's where we come in.
Size of the bathroom and placement of furniture
Before choosing your bathroom furniture, it's important to measure the space you have in your bathroom. If you're looking at buying bathroom cabinets, you should also measure the size of the doors to make sure you have enough room to open and close them.
For smaller bathrooms, floating units create the illusion of space. Our iflo Rhea collection is the ideal solution. Ergonomically designed, this modular bathroom furniture is fit for even the smallest of spaces.
Style of bathroom
When choosing bathroom furniture, decide on the style that will enhance the scheme. Traditional bathrooms suit furniture that is heritage-inspired, like washstands and roll top baths. Our Heritage washstand is the perfect nod to a traditional-inspired bathroom.
Create a cohesive scheme by using fixtures and fittings in the same metal. Antique bronze works well in period properties, while chrome looks great with modern bathroom furniture design.
Types of bathroom furniture
Once you've decided on the style of the bathroom furniture, it's time to decide on the type of bathroom furniture set.
Our washstands feature a freestanding unit with a basin sunk completely or partially into the top.
For extra storage solutions, we have freestanding units with shelving or drawers – perfect for busy family bathrooms.
Mirrors and cabinets
Bathroom cabinets are available in a wide range of models. Providing you with additional storage, they're perfect for holding towels and toiletry products.
If space is at a premium, floating shelves above sink units are a great alternative.
Mirrors aren't just useful for doing your hair in the morning, they are an essential part of any bathroom furniture set. Helping to brighten any space and add a touch of style, wall mirrors can adapt easily to all bathroom styles. Many mirrors have hidden storage and in-built lighting.
There are several different toilet units available depending on the size and style of your space. Back to wall toilet units offer a sleek and stylish solution for modern bathrooms, while closed coupled toilets are a more traditional fit.
If space and storage are at a premium, toilet units combined with cupboards provide the ideal solution.
