Your Dream Bathroom: A Guide To Selecting Bathroom Cabinets


If you are thinking of remodeling your bathroom, stop in to Columbia Kitchens so that we can help guide you step by step into making your dream bathroom a reality. One of our professional designers will start off by showing you the plethora of vanity cabinet options available, and guide you into making decisions which follow your vision for the bathroom. It can be overwhelming picking the right bathroom cabinets for your home, but Columbia Kitchens is here to help  make those hard decisions much easier.

It is important to know that your cabinet style choice can affect the look and feel of your entire bathroom because bathroom cabinets set the tone of your bathroom theme. Your bathroom cabinets are not just medicine cabinets. They are a reflection of your taste and creativity.

Before picking out your bathroom cabinets, you need to first consider how you will use your bathroom space. When you decide how the space will be used, you can decide on the best way to configure your bathroom, materials and style for your new bathroom cabinetry. For example, if you enjoy soaking in your bathtub for long periods of time, you could incorporate an open shelf area in your vanity bases to accommodate a place for a TV. Others have even included a feeding area for their pets.

If you look through design books and magazines, you can come up with a variety of ideas on how different styles and color combinations will complement one another. However, every bathroom is unique in size and style, which is why you would need a designer to advise you on what options fit you and your bathroom more personally. Your designer will help you understand how to use your bathroom space more effectively, so that you will leave with a design that fits your specific needs.

Bathroom cabinets are one of the least expensive items on the list of materials to expect when remodeling the bathroom. This is why you should request high quality cabinets. Vanity cabinets are very affordable and the upgrades are minimal since there are only a few cabinets in the bathroom. This allows you to create the most unique bathroom without having to worry about a budget.

Bathroom Cabinetry Style

There are so many options when it comes to choosing the color and style of your new bathroom cabinets, and can sometimes become overwhelming. Columbia Kitchens will help you figure out what look and feel you are trying to achieve, and will help you figure out how to compliment it with the rest of the house at the same time.

Your style options range from Classic to Contemporary; Modern and European, and Sleek or even Shabby chic. After figuring out which one to go with, your designer will show you the applicable doors to reflect that specific style.

You could end up with a simple vanity base and countertop, all which can be enhanced with simple fluting and/or clipped corners. You could also dress it up with legs or bun feet to give it a more furniture type feel.

Your countertop options will be solid surfacing like granite, Cambria, Silestone, or Corian; all which would be your most durable types. However, we also offer laminate and cultured marble, all which can be made to look like solid surface materials.

The tops would be topped off with an undermount, integrated, drop-in, or vessel sink, all which could add another dimension to the feel that you are going for- as well as dictate the maintenance. These are all things that would need to be considered when making your purchase as well as what you would be storing.

Deciding what you would be storing is crucial to choosing the types of accessories to go with in the cabinets. You could designate an area for a hamper, towels and linens, trash, make-up, and even jewelry. You could otherwise include roll-out trays for easy access to emergency items such as toilet paper or first aid kits.

Bathroom Cabinet Trends

It’s good to know what trends are in or not when making decisions for your bathroom. Style choices affect the resale of the home, and need to cater to the general public if you are looking to get the best bid. Ongoing trends that appeal to many and that are safe to go with are:

  • Cabinets with furniture feet.
  • Cherry and Maple woods
  • Clipped and/or fluted corners or fillers
