You need to find the right balance between cost, style, storage capacity and fitting the furniture into the shape, size and design of your bathroom.

Your bathroom furniture also has to be durable and long-lasting to safeguard it from any dampness and splashes.

More popularly found in kitchens, nowadays fitted furniture is becoming an increasingly popular choice for bathrooms. Fitted bathroom furniture is a stylish, sleek and space-enhancing way to add some extra storage space in your home.

What makes a fitted bathroom different?

Usually, the basic bathroom layout consists of, at the least, a basin and a bath, a toilet, shower or shower bath. Generally, all these elements are placed separate to another, but are bought as a matching bathroom suite, for a synchronized look.

However, having insufficient space is one of the most common reasons behind dissatisfaction within the home, there is an ever-increasing pressure to design extra storage space wherever possible.

The growing need for additional storage leads to buying bathroom furniture, but without a well-matched design and plan, bathroom furniture can simply look tacked on and somewhat out of place.

Things to Consider When Buying Fitted Bathroom Furniture

Adding bathroom furniture can offer all sorts of benefits, from creating a stylish and coordinated look to adding practical and efficient storage.

But with ample of different materials and styles available in the market, it can be quite challenging to decide what to choose, and what will work out in your bathroom.

This blog will help you buy the right fitted bathroom furniture. We have shared a few things to consider when looking for the fitted furniture for bathroom—

  1. Size and Positioning

Before starting to look at the different types of bathroom furniture, it’s important to get a fair idea of the available space, and figure out where exactly you want to fit the furniture. Having exact measurements of the length, width and height of your bathroom is important, and also the location of any utilities such as power supplies and mains water. Make a floor plan of your bathroom to see where furniture might fit perfectly, and make sure the doors have sufficient space to be opened comfortably.

Big units will look stylish and provide extra storage space, but make sure that pathways into and within the bathroom are clear. A cloakroom or a smaller bathroom does not mean having to compromise on bathroom furniture. Space-saving options such as wall-hung storage units, slimline units and cloakroom basin and toilet units will offer much-needed storage in the smallest of spaces.

  1. Style

Choosing the style of the furniture is essential to coordinate and complement the overall look of the bathroom. My Bubble Bath’s range includes traditional, modern as well as a contemporary option available at a choice of sizes, designs, colors and finishes.

Contemporary bathroom furniture is frequently revolutionizing to reflect the best-selling designs of modern trends.

If you have a more traditional style of bathroom, something like the Sharaton Stone Grey Traditional 465mm Freestanding Tall Boy Storage Unit would be perfect. For something more modern, but still with a bit of impact, you could go for the Cali bathroom furniture range, offering a wall-mounted basin with drawers, and a back to wall toilet unit with the same sleek and stylish finish.

  1. Furniture Material

When choosing your new bathroom furniture, the different types of materials available to pick from can be wide-ranging. The majority of bathroom cabinets will consist of wood material of some type, including—

Melamine Faced Chipboard (MFC): It consists of a melamine resin material attached to chipboard. Due to its tough outer finish, Melamine board is an extremely robust material and can be cleaned very quickly easily. It is ideal for use in a rented or secondary bathroom.

Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF): It is one of the most commonly used material in making quality bathroom furniture. It consists of offcuts and waste from other wood creation processes mixed with glues and binders and then hard-pressed together. MDF comes in a stunning variety of colors and finishes, and is resistant to humidity, temperature changes, and also to warping.

Solid Wood: If you are looking to give your bathroom a premium, stylish look and finish, look no further than solid wood. The natural charm of walnut or oak is often enriched using colors and paints that uncover the grain. If treated and manufactured correctly, heavy and substantial, solid wood furniture can last decades. The beauty of real wood demands additional care to make sure it is not unprotected to high humidity or quickly changing temperatures.
