Furniture is an important consideration in any bathroom. Not only is it extremely practical, especially for smaller bathrooms but it always adds character. Pair furniture with some matching accessories and you’ll have an eye-catching scheme in no time.
The expert customer service team at Bathroom Takeaway have given the following advice on planning for buying furniture:
Different types of furniture
There are many different types of units available for the bathroom, here are a few to consider:
Choosing the perfect vanity unit is all a matter of personal preference. Vanity units take up very little (if any) floor space – in fact, wall-hung vanity units make the room seem larger.
With storage space often at a premium, each and every drawer becomes more and more valuable. This is why a storage cabinet is a must for any bathroom. Choose from floor-standing, wall-mounted, free-standing or space-saving cabinets.
The most understated tool in bathroom design is light. It contributes to the tone, feel and perceived size of the bathroom. The issue many people face with small bathrooms is shadows but there’s an easy fix that requires only a mirror. Instead of fitting a new light fixture, add a mirror to reflect the existing and natural light so the corners of the room are brighter, causing the sharp edges of the corners to fade away, which makes the room feel bigger than it actually is.
If you’ve ever wanted a concealed cistern without all the building work and extra costs then WC units are definitely for you. They’re excellent features to seamlessly blend furniture and the suite together, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing look.
