Bathroom cupboards buyers guide
Gone are the days when bathroom cupboards and cabinets were simple storage essentials, existing only to conceal lotions and potions and embarrassing toiletries - or to simply provide a handy place to keep towels and hide laundry from guests!
Whether you're looking to recreate the luxurious, sumptuous feel of a spa or high class hotel in the privacy and comfort of your own home, or you favour a more minimalist design with sleek, clean lines, your choice of bathroom storage can really add the finishing touches to your perfect powder room.
As well as being seriously indulgent and helping to provide a celeb-worthy space to soak your cares away, many contemporary items of bathroom furniture are also true multi-taskers.
In the past, if your choice of cupboard included a mirror, it might have been regarded as something of an added bonus.
These days, bathroom cupboards and cabinets are feature-rich in a variety of styles colours and materials - but importantly shapes and sizes - to compliment any bathroom.
However, above all, we believe bathrooms were made for getting away from it all! So check out our range of stylish storage options that will help you create the perfect tidy bathroom space for the ultimate in comfort and relaxation.
The Avento range, from Villeroy & Boch, combines a slimline and minimalist feel which is perfect for the smaller bathroom with exquisite style and high-function.
V&B's bathroom basin cabinets are also multitasking, with attractive cupboards integrated with its high quality, perfect white ceramic sinks in a range of shapes and sizes - both curvy and slim and with double and single door designs - to fit into a range of spaces, whatever the size of your bathroom. These are a particularly useful option for smaller bathrooms, where space is at a premium.
Tall and slim free-standing cupboards are also a popular option for smaller spaces and these are available in a range of materials and colours from brands including Roper Rhodes.
The Villeroy & Boch Avento tall is also worth a look if you like this idea, as is the Keuco Royal Reflex Tall Storage Unit and the Roca Debba two-door column unit. The Old London 450mm tall storage unit and the super slim Noble Primo 300mm unit are other options for floor to ceiling storage.
Roper Rhodes Tall units
Tall units from this brand include the Profile wall hung tall storage unit, a fresh and natural-looking item, ideal for the modern bathroom or en-suite that needs an extra bit of storage space.
Narrow and sleek, with a uniform exterior finish, this understated piece with its subtle recessed handle incorporated into the door, can easily fit into snug corners; but its four shelving units, perfect towels, linen, or toiletries will help keep a smaller room clutter free.
Another tall and narrow option from Roper Rhodes is the impressive Vista. Far less understated, it would make a striking statement in any bathroom.
Roper Rhodes Valencia side cupboard, whilst a shorter option than the Vista and Profile is also worth a look for its sleek, narrow design and availability of matching furniture in the range.
Laundry basket and mobile storage units also create a neat, compact option for smaller spaces. The Old London 450mm Laundry Unit offers an ideal space for the family linen and laundry which is also super-stylish, with a traditional yet fresh appearance. Available in Ivory, Pistachio, Stone Grey or Walnut, there is something to suit all interiors and tastes.
The Bauhaus Pier Mobile Storage Unit is a similar-sized option in a cube-shaped design. It has six lockable castors to stop it moving once you've found the perfect place for it, and is available in the glorious steel, ebony and anthracite colours of the rest of the range. The similar sized Saneux Jones two drawer unit also offers a top mounted cushion, providing a comfortable place to sit in the bathroom: perfect if you like to talk to your other half while he or she is taking a bath or shower! The slightly larger Vitra Nest Base Unit with Wheels, with its washing basket style lid, is also an eye-catching piece that's well worth a look. Matching pieces in the Nest range from Vitra aim to bring a sense of homeliness and freshness to the interior.
Wellbeing and meeting your personal needs are as much a part of Villeroy & Boch's ethos as Roper Rhodes. Villeroy & Boch products favour comfort and luxury, whether you're looking to create a space worthy of a countryside retreat with classic wooden furniture that displays your treasures and hides what you don't want the world to see - or want to keep furniture to a minimum to make space for the outstanding feature baths and sink units the company also specialises in.
While Villeroy & Boch aims to create a stylish atmosphere, its clever designers also know you live in the real world, and make practical choices by using easy to clean materials in a range of colours and styles to suit your needs.
Villeroy & Boch have hit on a trend for some bold colours and unusual shapes not normally associated with the bathroom, like bright yellows, sky blue hues and fearless greens, but also features non-fussy styles and straight lines, so catering for a variety of personal tastes and different ideas on how to create a homely feel.
It's not only about modern colours and shapes, however. There are many traditional designs offering old-fashioned luxury and glamour in oak and pine wood and wood effects, in freestanding and wall-hung designs.
Many of the freestanding designs in wood offer a more traditional feel, with their scalloped feet and shaker styles. The Imperial Radcliffe Thurlstone side cabinet and others in the Imperial are a fine example of this.
The Thurlestone Side Cabinet, offers the perfect solution for anyone who wants to add storage space and beauty to a washroom or cloakroom.
The classic Shaker style of this unit looks great with traditional décor, and its large drawer and cupboard create plentiful storage space for towels and other items to prevent bathroom clutter.
This side cabinet measures 800mm high x 560mm wide x 395mm deep, making it an acceptable size for most bathrooms. It is available in two natural wood finishes, natural oak and wenge plus several colours, including cream haze, white linen, citreous cream, London clay, canvas wheat, and grey ecru. Painted versions come with pewter knobs.
Imperial also offer clear glass fronted styles, some of which work to a more antique design that's both attractive and functional - like the Imperial Esteem range - and some that would be in keeping with a more modern bathroom style, but using traditional wood like the Westminster Linear range. All create a stunning visual impact, while being small enough to tuck into a corner or against a wall.
The freestanding tall unit in the Westminster Linear range is particularly unique and eye-catching, with bow front doors and frosted glass. The natural oak option means it can be tailored to bathrooms going for that old-school glamour, but it's also available in white and wenge for more modern washrooms.
The Imperial Astoria Deco Cuda is another tall, narrower option, maximising bathroom storage in smaller spaces. Its tall, slimline appearance also means you don't have to compromise the surrounding decor, with dimensions of 1600 x 463 x 500 millimetres making it easy to incorporate into any size bathroom.
Like the Thurlestone side cabinet, this freestanding style is available in all natural oak or Wenge colours, which are certain to add a graceful, elegant accent to any bathroom.
Additional storage is provided by the one lower cupboard with a frosted glass or metal weave door front to keep any personal items or toiletries hidden from view.
The design also incorporates two open shelves above this cupboard where your favourite branded beauty products, perfumes and bath products can be stylishly presented.
Each shelving unit measures 463 millimetres in depth providing enough storage for multiple items of bathroom toiletries and essentials in all shapes and sizes.
Each shelving unit is made out of thick natural wood making it extremely sturdy and durable.
Four drawer units also seem to be a popular choice for bathrooms, and yet again it is possible to choose between traditional and contemporary design – and everything inbetween.
The Old London four drawer unit, as with many cabinets from this brand, are more traditional instyle, such as the natural walnut or stone grey 450mm unit. The same unit is also available in a more contemporary and clean-feeling ivory option for a more modern touch - yet still features chrome handles that conjure up images of an old-fashioned chest of drawers. A matching tallboy unit is available.
If you like Vintage and Traditional style, the Burlington Floorstanding Base Unit range is also worth a look. Single and double door options are compartmentalised with internal shelving, a similar colour palette and unique and interesting handles are in evident in this piece.
Bathrooms aren't just functional. Time spent in a bathroom can be a comforting and special experience in a decadent retreat designed by you, just for you. Making a smart choice when it comes to your bathroom furniture and storage solutions is vital, not only because a tidy bathroom is a happy bathroom, but because these say something about your own personal taste and style, help add the finishing touches to that perfect space and bring your overall look together.
