The bathroom is one of the most used spaces in the house but often doesn’t get the same attention as living rooms and bedrooms when it comes to styling. Sure, it would be easy to add a pot plant and some candles to make it your own, but if you really want to customise your bathroom, start with your vanity or cabinets.
Yes! While you may have not thought much about these features during your bathroom renovation, your vanity and cabinets can actually make the world of difference to the style and functionality of your room; so it’s important to spend as much time choosing them as you would your tiles or tapware.
To make sure you don’t end up with a boring bathroom, here are 3 great ideas for customising it.
Add open shelving
While an enclosed bathroom vanity can help with hiding your toiletries away, adding open shelving to your vanity can give you more options when it comes to styling your bathroom. Bench spaces in bathrooms are precious, so by adding open shelving you can add items like perfume and cologne bottles, dried flowers, folded feature towels or pot plants to make your bathroom feel more lived in, but still neat and tidy. Worried about clutter? Open shelving actually makes your bathroom feel more spacious which is especially important if you’re not blessed with space.
Change your door profile
One of the easiest ways to customise a bathroom cabinet or vanity is to change the profile of the doors. You don’t necessarily need to have the flat profile that comes standard. Shaker style is very popular in kitchens but has started to make its way into bathroom interiors with many people loving the sophisticated, federation-style look. If you want to be more contemporary, pleated timber panelling or 3D routed wood panels are also a great way to customise a vanity and add a decorative feature to your cupboard doors. We’ve seen this time and time again on TV shows like The Block, so if it’s good enough for Shaynna Blaze, it’s good enough for us!
Customise your bathroom vanity
Most vanities come in standard sizing, but if you engage a custom bathroom vanity builder like Husk & Co, you can design a vanity that will fit and suit your space perfectly. No more endless browsing online or weekends spent at homeware shops to try and find that perfect piece. Thinking of a walnut, white or oak look vanity? How about a marble or Caesarstone top? You can customise the size and shape, choose different handles and change the top so that it integrates perfectly with the style of your bathroom or home. It doesn’t matter what style of vanity you have in mind when designing your custom bathroom vanity, the sky’s the limit.
The best part about getting a custom bathroom vanity is that the cabinet maker can also create matching vanities for other bathrooms, powder rooms, the laundry or even the kitchen!
Customising your bathroom cabinet or vanity is a great way to add a personal touch to your new bathroom. Whatever style of bathroom cabinetry you decide to use, it’s important that you use a specialised bathroom renovation builder to ensure everything runs smoothly from the plumbing to the tiling and everything in between!
