Bathroom cabinets arguably have the most impact on how your new bathroom will look. But today, the options available are so many that it can be quite tasking to choose the best cabinets for your new bathroom. The days when you could simply pick one nice looking medicine cabinet and you are done are long gone. The process, however, doesn’t have to be overwhelming.

Start the selection process by first determining what you are exactly looking for. Will a small cabinet do or you need a spacious and large cabinet? Do you want cabinets that can be attached to the bathroom walls or freestanding? Are you looking for any special features such as softly closing hinges or a surface that is scratch-resistant? Once you have answered these questions, it now becomes easier to choose cabinets for your new bathroom.

Stock Cabinets or Customized

Stock cabinets are mass-produced with no customization. An excellent choice is budget is an issue. They are usually available in 3-inch increments ranging from 9 to 60 inches in width and 12-inch or 24-inch in depths. For semi-custom cabinets, you have more options in terms of size, stains, glazes, and door styles and their widths are in 1-inch intervals.

Custom cabinets are made according to the desires of your heart. They can be of any size, design or color and are usually more expensive due to the customization. A good option if you happen to be left-handed!

Construction and Materials

The bathroom is certainly among the most humid rooms in your house. Your cabinets have to withstand wet hands on them and also bear the brunt of daily wear and tear. Carefully consider the materials used in constructing the cabinets. Ensure the cabinets you buy are made with durable materials. Excellent materials include laminate, wood veneers, and thermofoil. If you opt to go with wood, ensure it comes sealed and lacquered.

Cabinet Hardware

Cabinet hardware is literally the jewelry of your bathroom. Whether traditional or modern choose the cabinet hardware that matches the unique style of your bathroom and house. Right now, brass and lucite are trending in hardware finishes. Oil rubbed bronze and nickel are other timeless classics and don’t forget matte black. What really matters is that the hardware you select matches the overall décor of your bathroom.

Cabinet Price

Another important aspect to consider is, of course, the budget. Spend some time researching as in the long-run it may help you save some money. Compare the cabinet prices in several shops in your locality or local websites. Check for possible discounts or go to a cabinet wholesaler because you might get a good bargain there compared to a retail shop.

As you choose cabinets for your new bathroom, it’s important that you select something that matches of your bathroom design. After all, this is a place you are going to spend lots of your time over the coming years!
