Make Vanity Cabinet Storage Work For You
While most vanity cabinets provide storage beneath the sink through base cabinetry, there are more ways to play up the advantages of other cabinet features for your vanity. You could select a wall mount vanity cabinet, or a freestanding vanity cabinet, which is more flexible as you could move it around the room as needed.
Depending on how much space you’re working with, you could work with a solo vanity base cabinet, floor-to-ceiling vanity cabinets, mirrored medicine cabinet, or a combination of vanity cabinet storage options from under, over, and everywhere in between. From there, you can pick doors, drawers, shelves, or open-faced shelving to diversify your vanity storage. The storage you need will depend on how many people will use the bathroom and what kind of items you’ll want to have handy for getting ready. It may be fun to experiment and customize your vanity with a variety of storage options for a more personalized and practical bathroom. Here are a couple of examples:
In a smaller bathroom, you can create a more open and airy space with open-face shelves in the vanity cabinets, whether freestanding or mounted, in which you could store items in coordinating baskets, bins, or other containers.
If you have a bigger bathroom, you could customize your vanity even further by taking advantage of the space around the vanity by installing a little vanity “alcove” through floor-to-ceiling vanity cabinets that border the vanity and up the walls on either side. This would enhance the coziness factor of the bathroom, depending on the style, as well as provide handy extra storage at less than an arms-length away. You could even top it with an overhead wall cabinet or wall shelving to optimize wall space and function, particularly if it’s a small bathroom. We also offer a variety of cabinet organizers that could further boost your vanity cabinet’s functionality.
Ultimately, the vanity cabinet that’s best for you and your loved ones will be the one that marries function, storage, and the desired aesthetic you want.
