Selecting the Perfect Bathroom Furniture

Selecting your new bathroom furniture can be very exciting, however there are a few things you need to first consider before committing to your new pieces:

  • Style: Our bathroom furniture comes in a wide variety of styles, shapes, sizes and finishes so you need to decide what overall look you want for your bathroom space. Are you after sleek gloss white bathroom furniture or maybe you’re looking for grey or dark washed wood? Do you want doors or drawers for storage? And is handleless your style or will you keep it traditional with handles? The options really are endless.
  • Size and positioning: We always recommend measuring the size of your available space so you know exactly what furniture will be able to fit and where. Our units all come in a variety of sizes, so there’s an option for everyone’s needs, space and budget.
  • Fitting: Is there anything extra required in the fitting of your chosen furniture? Most of our bathroom furniture comes pre-assembled, and many come complete with wall brackets, however this will always be stated in the product description.

Types of Bathroom Furniture

Vanity Units

vanity unit features a basin and storage facility in one, creating the perfect space-saving solution in your bathroom. The advantages of a vanity unit are that it hides all unsightly plumbing neatly within and offers an incredible amount of storage space that would otherwise be wasted.

This clever solution will fit into most bathrooms and utilises the wasted space underneath a traditional basin. Typically, you’ll get two spacious drawers or shelves within a standard sized basin vanity unit.

Basin vanity units range from 400mm wide up to 1200mm wide, so you can choose the exact size that suits your needs and bathroom limitations.

Storage Units

Bathroom storage units come in a wide range of styles, from floor storage to wall storage and even mirrored cabinet storage too. These solutions offer you more than just a few inches of space for essentials, this amount of extra space will help change the way you organise your bathroom for life.

Choosing storage to suit the size of your bathroom is key. Typically, floor and wall storage are cabinets in various sizes and designs that you can match to your full bathroom look.

Our Napoli collection does this well, offering mirrored cabinets, floating shelving and storage units that can match to your chosen Napoli bathroom suite.

Toilet Units

Toilet units are the perfect solutions for hiding all the pipes and plumbing that traditionally would be on show in your bathroom. They present the opportunity to co-ordinate and match the other furniture components that make up the design of your bathroom, making it a stylish and contemporary choice for your home.

Mirror Cabinets

Another style of bathroom furniture is the mirror cabinet. This glamorous addition is never a bad idea in any bathroom. A mirror will help to reflect the light, making the space appear larger than it actually is.

Typically, a mirror cabinet will have one or two doors with multiple internal shelves which help to keep essentials always hidden and out of sight. A mirror cabinet also keeps toothbrushes safe from harmful bacteria which become airborne when you flush the toilet.

Our huge range is available in modern or traditional styles, various colours and sizes and can even match your new bathroom design if desired.

Combination Basin and Toilet Units vs Modular Units

A combination basin and toilet unit are made up of two separate units, made to look like one as shown above. This clever design is not only a great space-saving and storage solution for those smaller bathroom spaces such as en-suites and cloakrooms but conceals all the plumbing and pipe work to make sure your space remains sleek and stylish.

Combination basin and toilet units are available in a range of styles and sizes to allow you to hand pick the perfect option for your new bathroom setting. These options often include either right or left hand to suit your bathroom space and needs.

Modular units are similar in that they are placed together to look like one unit; however, these types of units can also be taken apart and placed at separate areas in your bathroom space.
