When it comes to getting your dream bathroom, it's easy to focus on getting the perfect style for you and your home and forget about some of the practicalities. Storage space is a constant need for any household and a major consideration that many people can overlook when they start to redecorate or reorganise their rooms. Storage space is never more important than in a bathroom, either - you'll not only need somewhere to keep your toothpaste, toothbrushes, shaving cream and shower products, but you'll need to make sure it's somewhere accessible and easy to organise for everybody in the household.
Thanks to Keuco, however, you can combine practicality with stylishness and elegance. These items of bathroom furniture lend a look that is not only elegant and modern but also one that can fit with a huge variety of different styles and designs. The storage units and cabinets come in various different styles and sizes to help you get the most out of your available space, too, so if you have a more unusually shaped bathroom, you needn't worry - you can still get a good amount of storage space while maintaining a classic style to your decor.
However, there are a few things you'll need to know when you go about buying bathroom furniture. As well as how much space you need, you'll also need to consider the specific layout, make sure you measure up properly, think about your lighting... and a few other things you might not have thought about. Here's everything you should take into consideration when you make your decision.
The first thing you'll need to think about is simple - how much space you'll need to set aside for storing your essentials. There are a few things to take into consideration here, such as how many people are in your household who'll need room to store their items, and you'll also need to consider whether you'll need to compromise on the available space you have in the room. Even if you only have a small space, there are still solutions for you to be able to fit things in as best you can, but we'll consider the layout later. This is just a rough idea for now, but just make sure you don't underestimate how much room you'll need - after shaving products, bath products, shower products, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and more, there might be more than you think!
As well as the sheer amount of space needed, you'll have to think about how many people there are in your household and how you can organise your products to keep them separate. The Keuco cabinets have different sections to easily allow you to clearly store things in your own space, so check the properties of each of them to make sure there's enough for the number of people in your home.
Now, the important stuff. You can choose to do this one of two ways, product first or space first. You can take a look at the available space you want to use for storage, measure it up, and take a look at the products which can neatly fit into the space to give you the best storage solution possible. Alternatively, you can browse our available Keuco products first to see if there's anything that really catches your eye - after clicking through and checking the measurements, you can compare them against your own to make sure you can fit them into your own bathroom space. This is perhaps the most important part of buying bathroom furniture, so make sure you get it right!
In addition, don't forget that doors take up space when they need to be opened and closed - this means making sure that whatever you install doesn't get in the way of any of them. That's not just the door to the bathroom, either - be sure to take into account the shower door too, and be aware that the cabinets themselves have doors if you're trying to fit any of them into a really tight space. Make sure you take everything into account and consider how easy your bathroom will be to navigate - you won't want to end up with a cramped space at the end of all of your efforts.
One of the biggest advantages to Keuco bathroom furniture, and one of the main reasons they remain so desirable is the elegance and style of the lighting in many of the cabinets. A well-lit cabinet isn't just for show - the bright lighting will help you get the clearest view of yourself when you're getting ready, and make sure you don't miss anything when looking your best. As with all of Keuco's products, though, practicality is combined with style to produce some stunning, eye-catching designs which can really complete your bathroom and make it stand out as modern and stylish. Here are some of the great lighting options offered in Keuco's ranges of bathroom furniture.
A simple, classic and timeless look, many products in Keuco's Royal range have this system. The Keuco Royal 35 Mirror Cabinet boasts halogen lighting overhead for excellent all round brightness with stylish lamps which become an elegant feature for your decor, as well as having a practical use, and are perfect for bathrooms which can otherwise be dim. Meanwhile, the Keuco Royal Universe Illuminated Mirror Cabinet boasts LED lighting for a low environmental impact as well as excellent coverage. The Royal 30 Mirror Cabinet, alternatively, uses two 20-watt bulbs, which can be optionally installed to allow you to fully customise the look of your lighting - or you can leave it out if you have sufficient lighting already.
For a slightly different look which can really catch the eye, you might consider the Keuco Royal T2 Mirror Cabinet. This piece uses two 14-watt exterior strip lamps, one on each side, to give a brilliant lighting solution which remains integral to the cabinet.
If you're looking to go for something a little bit different and really give a modern look to your bathroom, then Keuco have some truly innovative designs to make your bathroom stand out. The Keuco Royal Reflex Cabinet contains 18-watt fluorescent strips at the top of the unit to help provide the perfect amount of lighting while keeping it integral to the cabinet itself, making it a really stunning piece. The Royal T1 Mirror Cabinet uses an internal lightbox with more of an art deco design which can really help pull your bathroom together and again provide a unique piece. The Keuco Royal T1 integral also brings bright lighting even to a recessed installation, giving you style while also helping you save as much space as possible.
As well as lighting, many of Keuco's bathroom cabinets come with handy shaver sockets to make the most of your space and save you the hazard and inconvenience of trailing unsightly wires around your bathroom as you get ready. Not only will this save time, but it'll also help keep things a lot tidier. Many of Keuco's cabinets come with this as standard - be sure to click through and check if it's something you need.
Most of Keuco's ranges are designed to provide a classic, neutral yet timeless look which complements almost any type of decor and function as a central piece for your bathroom. Yet between the Royal, Royal Reflex, Elegance and Edition ranges, you're sure to be able to find something that's really perfect for your own sense of style. While the simple, mirrored, clean finishes of the Royal range can go with almost anything, the pure white ceramic look of the Royal Reflex basin and cloakroom unit can also be a great fit for other furniture.
If you've got a tight space to try and make the most of, that's not a problem - there are a few innovative designs in Keuco's ranges that can help you maximise the potential of your bathroom's layout. The Keuco Royal 30 Tall Mirror Cabinet is a perfect example, utilising a narrow space to give you just as much storage as a more standard cabinet. The Royal Reflex Tall Storage Unit offers the same solution in a different design, too. Finally, if you have the opportunity for a recessed installation, the Keuco Royal T1 Integrated Mirror Cabinet is a truly stunning piece, giving a brilliant combination of eye-catching design and complete maximisation of available space.
Whatever type of bathroom you're looking for, Keuco's ranges can help give you some of the most stylish pieces on the market and fit them to your ideal design. Not only will you have a centrepiece which can bring the whole look of your bathroom together, you'll also have something practical which helps you maximise all of your available storage space and organise your home.
