How to Choose Bathroom Furniture for a Fresh, Functional Space

When redesigning your bathroom, it's important to understand how to choose bathroom furniture to create a cozy but functional spot that maximizes the space you have to work with. We want to make this task as simple and as enjoyable as possible, so here are some tips on how to furnish and accessorize your bathroom to transform the area.

Functional Furniture for an Organized Bathroom

When revamping an existing bathroom, we like to choose bathroom furniture that's functional and stylish. When it comes to bathroom storage furniture, we think your first stop should be to consider the benefits of bathroom cabinets. Not only do they look great, but floor-to-ceiling cabinets also give you tons of storage space without taking up precious floor area. Cabinets feature shelves and drawers to give you quick access to everyday bathroom items such as towels, a hairdryer, various toiletries and cleaning products. Items store tidily and discreetly behind doors to maintain an orderly, fresh space. You can choose a standalone cabinet as a focal point for your bathroom or browse bathroom furniture collections to coordinate your entire bathroom.

If you're looking for smaller bathroom storage furniture, we think you'll love storage towers and cubbies. These provide extra storage, all while working in decorative details like handwoven fibers on a metal frame for beautiful and functional furniture. Keep them out on display next to the bathroom sink, or tuck them under existing furniture for out-of-sight storage.

Doing laundry is a necessary chore for all of us, but it gets a bit easier when you have helpful clothes hampers. Keep dirty clothes off the floor and contained in one place to make laundry time quick and easy. Choose from woven tote baskets or wooden hampers, or opt for a hamper with a lid for more subtle, private storage. Your bed and bath area will no longer be a fright with clothes strewn about.

Space-Saving Storage Options for Limited Space

If your bathroom is a little on the smaller side, we have some unique bathroom furniture ideas for you. Through strategic use of wall spaces in your bathroom, you can have all the small space storage you need while keeping your bathroom organized and looking great.

Install a medicine cabinet above your bathroom sink to store all the little things you use regularly, such as your toothbrushes and toothpaste, lotions and hairspray. Choose a medicine cabinet with or without a mirror, but remember that a mirror will reflect light and double as a decorative technique, as well as helping with your morning routine. We feel that medicine cabinets provide a wonderful way to keep your sink clean and clutter-free. Choose a cabinet from bathroom furniture collections to match existing decor, or opt for a contrasting cabinet to offset current bathroom storage furniture.

Decorate walls while simultaneously utilizing wall storage with unique bathroom furniture and shelving. Choose mix-and-match shelves to contrast from bathroom furniture collections, or opt for cubbyhole-style shelving to store and display towels and bathroom accessories. Wall-mounted shelving with metal frames and antique finishes will bring an edgy feel to your bathroom while providing functional storage space.

We think storage carts are some of the handiest accessories around. With multiple levels for storing anything from towels to toilet paper, these rolling carts are versatile and usable for a range of purposes. Whether you want to utilize a small space between furniture or create an open display unit as an alternative to drawers, these carts are so versatile that you can use them anywhere in the house, not just as bathroom storage furniture. That's the kind of multipurpose goodness we love.

Decorate with Functional Accessories for a Fresh Space

When you've all but finished redesigning your bathroom and installed your quality bathroom furniture, add the final touches with wall hooks and racks. Install hooks behind doors or on free wall space to hang towels and robes when not in use. We love hooks that match our decor for an added touch of style.

We also think mirrors are a great way to brighten up rooms and complement bathroom storage furniture. Mirrors reflect light and give the illusion of more space. Choose decorative mirrors to fill empty wall spaces, or opt for a functional mirror above the sink. Mirrors with built-in trays provide an extra surface for you to store your regularly used bathroom products.

De-clutter your bathroom surfaces and ensure your bathroom cupboards are well organized with a range of bathroom accessories. Add soap dispensers and toothbrush holders to keep frequently used items easily at hand, or add baskets and jars to your cabinets to arrange and store items neatly. Wonderful accessories exist to suit all personalities and complement existing bathroom storage furniture.

We find that plants add a homey, luscious feeling to any room, and the bathroom is no different. Find a hanger or planter according to your requirements—hangers work great in smaller bathrooms as they don't take up any floor or surface space—and choose a bathroom-friendly plant such as ferns and succulents to liven up the room. If you don't have a green thumb, consider faux plants. Find a falling plant to tumble down from the top of taller bathroom storage furniture, such as high cabinets, to create a jungle-like feel.

Once you have an idea of the necessary furniture and accessories for your bathroom, the possibilities are endless. From tall bathroom cabinets to wall-mounted shelving and storage, our huge range of quality bathroom furniture will let you personalize your bathroom to maximize space and storage while creating a fresh, unique washroom. Now that you've armed yourself with the knowledge of how to choose bathroom furniture, start exploring.
