Fitted bathroom furniture: easy style and storage

Fitted bathroom furniture: easy style and storage

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 5 years ago 4 min read

One of the key issues in homes throughout the UK is a lack of space. As we celebrate The Great British Bathroom, we’ll show you how fitted furniture can enhance your storage space and just how easy it is to fit.

If you’ve ever had a kitchen fitted, you’ll probably understand how fitted furniture works, with a range of different yet coordinated units that serve a vital purpose. Over the years, designers have met the challenges of today’s modern home by adding space-saving solutions to these units, allowing homeowners to store items easier and more efficiently.

With all these space-saving innovations, it’s hardly surprising that many of us are turning to fitted furniture in other areas of the home, including the bathroom.

What is fitted bathroom furniture?

A fitted bathroom usually contains a variety of coordinated storage units producing a single, uninterrupted run of furniture, with at least some of the following elements:

  • Back to wall toilet and unit with concealed cistern
  • Cupboards
  • Drawers
  • Mirror cabinet
  • Plinth
  • Tall storage unit
  • Wall hung cupboards
  • Worktop
  • Vanity unit with basin and undersink cupboard or drawers

The number and type of units you purchase will all depend upon your available space and layout. To find out more about this subject, read our fitted bathroom furniture buying guide.

What are the benefits of fitted bathroom furniture?

The benefits of fitted bathroom furniture are clear to see:

  • Sleek, coordinated appearance with all plumbing discreetly hidden
  • Plenty of storage and efficient use of space
  • Flexibility—you choose which units and elements you require
  • Low maintenance—your bathroom is easier to clean with fewer recesses, corners and awkward obstructions.
  • Can use a single wall or be extended into an L shape to use 2 walls

How easy is it to install fitted bathroom furniture?

Whilst we would thoroughly recommend hiring a qualified trade professional to plumb your new bathroom, you could save time and money by installing your fitted bathroom furniture yourself.

Depending on how confident you are with more complex DIY tasks, fitted bathroom furniture is relatively straightforward when compared to fitting a kitchen.
