If you want to transform your bathroom into a place that your family and guests will love, choosing the right design, type, and placement of your bathroom cabinets is essential. The job of your bathroom storage shelves doesn’t stop at holding your soaps, towels, and bathtub candles. They also dictate the visual flow of your bathroom space, making small bathrooms look spacious and spacious bathrooms look regal.

According to the National Association of Homebuilders, more than 80% of urban remodeling requests are for bathroom renovations. Custom storage cabinets, space-saving adjustable shelves, and wall-mounted bathroom storage counters are responsible for a sizeable chunk of renovation costs. Here’s how to choose cabinetry you’ll be happy with for years to come.

Consider New Design Ideas Like Cabinet Refacing

If you plan to remodel your bathroom to fetch a higher price for a home you plan to sell, sustainable designs are the way to go. A wall-mounted bathroom cabinet made from recycled materials is one example.

Cabinet resurfacing allows you to keep the original layout of your bathroom. It also saves your current cabinets from ending up in a landfill. If you want to marry sustainability, cost-efficiency, and durability, you can’t go wrong by hiring cabinet refacing professionals from Reliance Cabinetry.

If you plan to remodel your entire bathroom, don’t be afraid to pitch adventurous design concepts to our project planners. Browse through interior design magazines, plumbing catalogs, and remodeling websites, and discover your preferences.

Creating a Budget for Bathroom Storage

Bathroom cabinets are one of the most prominent design elements in any washroom or powder room. They occupy a considerable amount of visual space, so they should complement the overall design of your bathroom while keeping your cleaning materials, towels, and spare toilet paper away from prying eyes.

You have to balance four things when creating a budget for your bathroom cabinets:

  • Functionality
  • Durability
  • Timelessness of design
  • Aesthetic appeal

Many property managers and Airbnb owners want to hop on the latest design trends, sacrificing the timelessness of their bathrooms for short-term aesthetic appeal. At Reliance Cabinetry, we find that a balance between conservatism and adventurousness creates the cleanest-looking residential and commercial washrooms.

Bathroom Vanity Materials and Construction

As professional contractors, we separate bathroom cabinets into three categories:

  • Budget: includes half-inch particleboard boxes and glued, nailed, or stapled drawers.
  • Mid-range: features half-inch plywood boxes and dovetailed drawers, which can last longer than budget ones.
  • High-end: have half-inch to 3/4-inch hardwood boxes and drawers with dowel or dovetail joints, which can last for decades.

Most people on a tight budget pay about $70 to $150 per square foot for mass-produced design elements. The mid-range and high-end categories offer a broader selection of stains, door styles, glazes, and sizes.
