This guide will introduce you to the types of bathroom cabinets available at, and what you should consider when choosing one.

What type of storage do you need?

There is a wide range of options when it comes to choosing bathroom cabinets, so you should start by thinking about what you want to store and where. For example, if you need to keep razors and cosmetics away from your little ones, a wall mounted cabinet above your sink or toilet is a great option.

Mirror cabinets

A bathroom mirror cabinet is always a popular and practical choice, combining two needs into one, and keeping your everyday essentials within easy reach. An illuminated mirror cabinet adds extra light to the room too, as well as an element of glamour and luxury. It can also be a practical choice if your bathroom has limited or no natural light.

Tall cabinets

If you have the space, a tall freestanding unit, or wall hung cabinet can make a real visual impact and bring the room together. They are also very useful for storing bathroom towels and larger items. Some have fully concealed cupboards, whilst others have a mix of cupboards and shelf space, so you can select one that best suits your needs.

General storage unit

If you don’t need too much storage space, a floor standing bathroom cabinet is ideal. They tend to be about 800mm tall. There are a variety of styles and finishes available, so you can choose one that will add a little personality to your room without being overbearing.
