Get Creative With Bathroom Cabinets
Bathroom cabinets can be a fun and creative project to work with because of their smaller size. It also helps that they will not be the center of attention, such as your kitchen cabinets. So if you have some fun ideas you’ve been hesitant about in the past, now is the time to let those ideas shine! Have you always wanted dark blue cabinets with gold hardware but aren’t sure if you can pull that off in the kitchen? A bathroom will be the perfect place to experiment with these sorts of things. Using a combination of fun colors and hardware, anything is possible. Many guest baths will feature just one vanity cabinet, so you want to make a statement. One thing to remember with a small-scale project like this, is that small changes make a big difference. With your design choices made, its time to think about modifications.
Modify Your Bathroom Cabinets
Bathroom cabinets don’t usually have much for storage but it may be something you need. If this is the case, it might be worth it to look into modifying your cabinets to increase storage. If doors aren’t too important, convert them into drawer boxes. You are much more limited by space with bathrooms, but conversions work to use what you already have. Converting two doors into three drawer boxes for example, can increase your overall storage without having to add new cabinets. Do you have unused space somewhere? Add some brand new boxes and reface your existing ones to match. New cabinets will give you the added space you need, without having to alter your current set up. Thinking of how you would like to modify your cabinets before starting your project is strongly suggested, as this may prevent problems down the road.
