If you’re looking to spruce up your storage, but don’t know where to start, we’ll show you how choosing the right bathroom furniture range can help you create a coordinated and cohesive bathroom design.
With the average UK home decreasing in size, storage forms a vital part of any modern bathroom design. However, if you’re new to this bathroom buying game, or even if you’re not, it can feel like a minefield when picking out the perfect pieces to complement both your style and layout.
In this guide, we’ll demonstrate why it’s often best to buy from a coordinated range and point you in the right direction when it comes to choosing the perfect style at the right price.
Why bathroom furniture ranges?
Much like with any type of furniture, from your living room to a bedroom, we arrange our bathroom furniture into ranges so you can choose matching items for a cohesive, coordinated look.
Most of our ranges come complete with all the main types of furniture you will need for bathrooms big and small. These include:
- Vanity units (a combined basin and furniture unit)/Washstands (a basin supported by legs or a frame)
- Mirror cabinets (wall hung cupboard with a mirrored front)
- Storage units (cupboards or drawers)
- Back to wall toilet units (containing a concealed cistern for use with back to wall toilets)
- Bath panels (neatly conceal the underside of your bath)
Most of these items can either be floorstanding or wall hung, depending on your preferences, as well as the structural suitability of your walls.
The very latest in contemporary styling: the Roche furniture range from Mode Bathrooms
Whilst you can, of course, mix and match items from different ranges, for the most stylish outcome, it’s always best to coordinate your furniture. Next, let’s consider the style you’re looking to achieve.
Which style are you looking to achieve?
In general, bathrooms are split into 2 main styles.
Contemporary (also known as “modern”) is clean, sleek and of the moment, utilising current trends. Clean lines and simple forms are the hallmarks of contemporary bathroom furniture. Of course, contemporary is only a general style and this can be further split into sub-styles like minimalism, industrial or organic.
Traditional, on the other hand, is tried, tested and timeless. Traditional bathroom furniture features decorative elements like panelling or bevelled edges, recalling bygone eras like the Victorian and Edwardian periods. Again, this can be split further into sub-styles, like rustic, shaker or elegance.
Once you have a style in mind, this will help narrow down your options in terms of which furniture ranges you choose. Brands exclusive to Victoria Plum include (click on any of the links to see our bestsellers):
- Clarity (contemporary)
- Orchard Bathrooms (a mix of contemporary and traditional style furniture)
- Mode Bathrooms (contemporary style furniture)
- The Bath Co. (traditional style furniture)
- Reeves (a mix of contemporary and traditional style fitted furniture)

Budget is another crucial element in any bathroom renovation product. If you’re trying to keep bathroom costs to a bare minimum, you may opt for just a mirror cabinet to meet your storage needs, however, there are plenty of options open to you.
