Your bathroom is one of the busiest rooms in your home. Your comfort and convenience have a serious impact on your life. This is why you should consider redecorating and renovating your bathroom in a rarely used guest room. One of the simplest changes you can make is to bring contemporary bathroom furniture and decorations. But what constitutes contemporary bathroom furniture?
Built-in shelves / walls
Built-in shelves and half-walls have become common in modern bathrooms. One reason is that they allow you to use them for storage without being as intrusive as a rack of shelves. The other is that they can double as support for those who need help getting out of the tub or getting out of the bathroom. It is not as obvious as a grab bar for the disabled and remains attractive and useful for subsequent homebuyers. Half walls have the side benefit of preserving privacy, improving airflow around the toilet and allowing someone to help the person in the bathroom without being directly in front of them.
Sinks have been built on vanities for decades. We are seeing a change to the bathroom vanities. One reason for this change is that you can place vanities in the bathrooms and sinks on the wall. This maximizes the amount of storage you have in the bathroom. He still takes advantage of the space above and around the otherwise wasted toilet. These vanities also hide the pipes and the sink supports. In addition, they are versatile. You can place a bathroom vanity mounted around a freestanding sink or a wall. Now, the trash bucket, laundry basket or cosmetics stored under the sink are hidden and you get more usable storage due to the sliding drawers.
Freestanding vanities and shelves
Freestanding vanities and shelves provide much-needed storage. The biggest benefit of this bathroom storage option is that it is mobile. You can buy it, put it in the bathroom and start using it. If you decide to move it into the hall or the other bathroom, you have that option. Note that this is not a discussion of independent and built-in vanities. You can actually buy sets of built-in, freestanding vanities. Then the small dressing table in the corner corresponds to the dressing table under or beside the sink. This is certainly a more elegant option than installing an expensive vanity under the sink and mounting hanging baskets or wire shelves in the corner.
Independent vanities can also complement corner sink vanities, such as when you have the corner sink vanity on one side of the room and a free standing vanity on the other. Or combine it with a tall storage system that does much more than shelves.
The medicine cabinet
The medicine cabinet need not be an opaque metal box affixed to the wall. That's why so many are hiding behind mirrors. You can also have a wall-mounted medicine cabinet / storage unit that matches the vanity and other room furniture.
