As one of the most frequently used rooms in a house, the bathroom should be adequately furnished to maximize comfort and convenience. In most traditional bathrooms the furniture will generally be a cupboard, mirror, a light fixture, and maybe even a towel holder however one’s furniture options should not just be limited to those few items.
In modern bathrooms the furniture is not only useful, but it plays an important part in the décor and overall feel of the bathroom itself. Additionally different sized bathrooms will need to be furnished accordingly. To ensure you get the best possible furnishings for your bathroom, you should know some essential facts about buying bathroom furniture.
First, you need to consider the size of your bathroom. As stated earlier the furniture options available to you will vary depending on your bathroom size. Of course a large floor shelf or vanity is going to be out of the question for a small bathroom in an apartment; however on the flip side you don’t want to purchase petite furniture for a larger bathroom because it will look awkward and make the space seem empty.
So what types of furniture should you look at for your bathroom? Well there are two main types: free standing furniture and wall hung furniture.
Wall hung furniture is a fantastic option for people who have smaller bathrooms but still want the most out of their space. Having furniture pieces up on the walls ensures that there is still plenty of room on the floor. Most people with smaller bathrooms are restricted solely to wall hung furniture (not necessarily a bad thing) while other’s with larger bathrooms still like the convenience and style of some wall hung pieces.
If you want a more elegant and sophisticated feeling in your bathroom then you should consider free standing furniture. Free standing furniture is generally used in more contemporary bathrooms and can be found in impressive and attractive sets that will make any bathroom look like it came straight from a magazine! Unfortunately free standing furniture is not generally the ideal furniture choice for smaller bathrooms.
Larger bathrooms can make the most out of the space given by utilizing ornate furniture sets that help fill out the space. When choosing free standing furniture try to make sure that they are sized according to your bathroom because, as stated earlier, having too little or too much furniture will diminish the overall feel of your bathroom.
