Bathroom Cabinetry Installation: What to Consider

Bathroom Cabinetry Installation: What to Consider About Kitchens and Baths

When your bathroom cabinetry is a contrasting color opposite your bathroom walls, it creates a lot of visual dynamics

About Kitchens and Baths offers many services to help transform your bathroom, such as bathroom cabinetry installation. Reasons to upgrade your bathroom cabinets may include needing more storage, or your bathroom cabinets may be outdated. Whatever the reason, you deserve to have a fully functional and beautiful bathroom. A bathroom has so many elements, from its flooring to the shower and hardware, and of course, the cabinets. When it’s time to narrow down how you want your new bathroom to look, it can be challenging to make concrete decisions. Hopefully, this content will offer you some clarity. Here are some things to consider regarding bathroom cabinetry installation. 

Bathroom Cabinetry Color Guidelines

When you choose lighter-colored cabinets, they will reflect light. They’ll make a smaller bathroom appear more expansive. If you have a larger bathroom, it’s perfectly acceptable (and ideal) to break up your color scheme a bit. The contrast between colors doesn’t have to be jarring, but choosing a cabinet color different from your wall color will help an expansive space have a focus and visual interest. 

Another thing to consider is how natural light plays a role in your bathroom. Not all bathrooms have windows, so if your bathroom does, you want to take advantage of this. When natural light comes in from the south or west, it will add warmth to your bathroom. When natural light enters your bathroom from the north or east, it will be cooler. This factor can play into how you play around with color when it comes to your kitchen cabinets. 

Rules of Thumb Regarding Texture

A common misconception is that a smooth surface doesn’t count as a texture. However, it does! If you fancy a contemporary bathroom style, you should have all clean lines and smooth textures in your bathroom. However, if you want to offset a bathroom cabinet that’s not as textured, choose textured decor. Another design rule of thumb to keep in mind is that the more you play around with texture, the smaller your bathroom will appear because so much is going on visually. 

Material Considerations

Go for the most durable material. Sure, it may be a little pricier up front, but you won’t have to worry about repair costs later or your kitchen cabinet going through wear and tear within a matter of months. Research what materials can hold up well to moisture. Solid wood, specifically oak, is an excellent option. However, we offer four levels of bathroom cabinetry that comes in colors and textures and cover various budgets, which are:

  1. Wolf (the most affordable and readily available)
  2. Fabuwood (semi-custom wood with limited colors and styles)
  3. Showplace Wood Products
  4. Mouser Premier (fully custom overlay and inset cabinetry) 

Whether you prefer minimalism or extravagance, we can cater to your bathroom design needs
