In this blog entry, we'll discuss how the design process works and the options you'll choose when designing your perfect bathroom space. 

Designing the Perfect Bathroom

Because your cabinets are such a prominent element in your bathroom, they provide much more than simple storage. Your bathroom cabinets provide an opportunity for design expression that can create a specific energy and look in your bathroom. In a well-designed bathroom, each element will come together to create a harmonious appeal. Cabinets, appliances, flooring, walls, and light fixtures should be combined using design principles to create a stunning interior space. 


Some homeowners use their bathrooms to express their creativity, while others are concerned with creating a simple but elegant look that adds to a home's overall value. Because your goals may differ, many homeowners find that designing custom cabinets is better than a predetermined design. 

Important Design Considerations

When you're visualizing your new bathroom cabinets, remember that they're a permanent and prominent fixture in your bathroom. Everyone who steps in your bathroom will notice them, so it's important to make a statement that guests will love. 


At the same time, your cabinets will most likely be around for many years, so it's important to make sure you'll be comfortable with a look in the future after years of use. For homeowners who lack design training and experience, choosing a timeless design can be difficult. 


Here are a few elements to consider when you're deciding on the right look for your home:

What Style is Your Home or Bathroom?

It's always a good idea to consider the look of your home when designing your cabinets and decide if you want to keep your bathroom in that style or veer away to something new. 


Some homeowners try to find a happy medium by blending the architectural style of their home with a new, contemporary twist. For example, you may wish to install cabinets that capture the essence of a mid-century home but with updates that combine modern visual appeal and technology. 

What Are Your Tastes?

Your style may factor heavily into your bathroom design. After all, your bathroom is a place of comfort and refuge. Do you prefer modern designs? Perhaps you prefer a more traditional, classic look. Take a look at complete bathroom design ideas and note the styles you find most appealing. 

What Colors, Stains, or Textures Do You Love?

Beyond architectural and design styles, consider the color palette you'd love to have in your bathroom. For a minimalist look, consider integrating a Nordic wood feel. Or perhaps you prefer a crisp, gleaming neutral. Next, you'll want to consider the textures you'd love to see in your bathroom. 

What are Your Practical Cabinet Goals?

Beautiful cabinets are much more than just a pretty face. Consider the types of storage you'll need first. You'll also need to decide if you want to use your current bathroom cabinet design configuration or rearrange your space. Finally, determine if there are any minor additions you wish to make to add to your bathroom's functionality. 

Planning Your Bathroom Cabinet Design

When pulling together your bathroom, one of its most important elements is your bathroom cabinet design. Cabinets are a valuable investment for several reasons. At their most basic, bathroom cabinets perform an essential function by creating storage for your toiletries, towels, and other necessities. 


There's nothing quite like the frustration of not having enough storage to put away everything you need in a bathroom. A great set of bathroom cabinets needs to be highly functional to store everything you'll need to access in your bathroom. The best cabinets combine lots of storage with functionality.

Single Bathroom Vanity

Spare bathrooms are a great addition to have when you're entertaining guests, and they can be a lifesaver for large families. But spare bathrooms are often much smaller than the master bath in a home. Storage in these bathrooms can be a headache when there's no place to stash towels or extra toiletries.


However, a tiny bathroom doesn't mean you have to give up on a bathroom vanity. We can customize a small vanity perfectly suited for your small bathroom, no matter the size.

Large Double Bathroom Vanity

If you've got a large master bath, there's nothing quite as elegant as a sprawling double vanity. You and your spouse will enjoy plenty of space to get ready in the morning without tripping over each other. We can also help you make the most of your vanity space so there's plenty of room for everything you need to start the day.

Linen Shelf

Finding the right place to stash your towels is one of the greatest bathroom storage conundrums. Consider adding an attractive linen shelf for storing your towels. A solitary linen shelf is also a lovely place to display apothecary jars and other decor for a clean, minimalist look.

Combining Cabinets And Shelves

When you think of a traditional vanity, there's a good chance you'll imagine a block of cabinets. Integrating open shelving alongside traditional cabinet solutions allows you to create more versatility in your bathroom storage. Drawer dividers and custom storage solutions come together for an extra level of organization.

Pullout Cabinet Drawers

Are you tired of cluttered toiletry drawers? A pullout cabinet drawer can help you maximize your storage space. With a pullout drawer, bath essentials, beauty products, and personal hygiene items can be tucked discreetly away, banishing bathroom clutter.
