While it may be one of the smallest rooms in the house, the bathroom still requires lots of storage and so incorporating this can be tricky. There’s where good bathroom furniture comes in. With the right pieces, you can fit in useful bathroom storage for those towels, toiletries, medicines, makeup, toilet roll and bits and bobs that seem to accumulate in the bathroom.
But what options are there? You can go for vanity units with cabinets, sinks and mirrors all incorporated in one piece of bathroom furniture, or you could look at freestanding pieces such as bathroom shelves and storage units. Then there’s also trays, baskets, bins, pullout drawers, shower caddies, carts and shelves for extra bathroom storage. Read on for some advice on the best pieces of bathroom furniture to choose for your space:
Go for an all-in-one vanity unit
One of the easiest ways to bring organisation and plenty of bathroom storage to your bathroom is by investing in a vanity with lots of cabinets and drawers. Often a bathroom is too small to hold a freestanding cabinet or even a wall unit, so having a good sink console is key.
Once you pick out your vanity, use cabinet and drawer organisers or baskets, bins and trays and if space is tight, store only frequently used items in the bathroom itself; all the rest, including extra towels and less-used accessories, can be placed in a linen cupboard or guest bathroom. If you still don’t have enough space, you can use your worktop, but add trays, baskets, canisters and jars to keep products organised yet accessible.
Invest in extra storage
If you need more storage and have the space, a double vanity unit is always a popular choice for bathroom furniture, especially since two sinks are now preferred. Wall shelves are a great way to add bathroom storage without using up valuable floor space, and rolling trolleys and cabinets can be moved out when it gets tight. Makeup vanity units are often popular for storing beauty products, and tall bathroom cabinets or bathroom storage units are great for extra linens, medicines and hair accessories like hair dryers and straighteners.
Take a look through the various bathroom furniture sections – whether that’s bathroom cabinets, shelves, worktops, vanity units and organisers – to see if you can find the perfect pieces for your room.
