Different Types Of Bathroom Cabinets

November 12th, 2018 5:35pm

A bathroom can be as plain or luxurious as you want, but one rule is irrevocable: it must be functional. One place in particular where form and function meet is in the bathroom cabinets. Storage space in your bathroom is necessary, but how you choose to do it has endless possibilities! Here are some of the most popular bathroom cabinet styles and how you can incorporate them into your bathroom remodel project.

Flat Style Cabinets

These cabinets tend to be very stylish and yet very simple. They include minimal hardware and might not have the usual knobs and handles you're used to. Instead, they live up to their name, with a flat, plain facade. Often, flat style cabinets are also free of embellishment, etching, or grooves. Flat style cabinets suit a bathroom where you want the focus to be elsewhere. They also fit well in modern designs that prioritize stark, streamlined aesthetics.

Beadboard Cabinets

Beadboard cabinets have an almost chic cottage feel to them. Beadboard was traditionally used as paneling for walls. However, it has quickly become an option for bathroom cabinets and adds depth and intrigue with its delicate detailing and colored accents. These cabinets are perfect for chic bathrooms, cottage-style bathrooms or even an eclectic bathroom.

Louvre Style Cabinets

Louvre cabinets borrow their name from louvre shutters, which they imitate in design and function. Louvre style cabinets feature spaced out slats that allow for good ventilation and unique visual interest. Louvre style cabinets work well in homes that have a tropical or beachy feel to them, especially if you decide to create a distressed wood look.

Shaker Cabinets

When looking at bathroom cabinets, you're going to see a lot of styles that are very popular in kitchens too. Shaker style cabinets, for example, are one of the most popular types of cabinets for both bathrooms and kitchens. They offer functionality but are also aesthetically pleasing with clean lines and utilitarian styling. Shaker cabinets are highly versatile, and work well in traditional, transitional, or even a contemporary bathroom.

Inset Cabinets

Want something that will really add a dramatic impact to your bathroom? Inset cabinets are created with pristine craftsmanship. They tend to have really clean lines complimented with either a beaded or flush-faced frame and concealed or finial hinges. Inset cabinets work well with almost any bathroom, especially once you start to do some customizations, from traditional to transitional to shabby chic.

Styled cabinets are further customized by adding details like paints, stains, varnishes, and hardware.

Materials for Bathroom Cabinets

Beyond choosing the aesthetic style of your bathroom cabinets, you'll also want to consider the material that will be used. Some cabinet styles have more limited options. Others can be made using many different kinds of materials. When deciding on your bathroom cabinet material, cost and function are the most important factors. Laminate, for example, is going to be a cheaper option. However, it can also become loose or unglued over time. Wood is often more expensive, but it's also going to last for longer, look more luxurious, and have more finishing options.
