A bathroom is a small space, and you want to make the most of every change you’re making. This includes your bathroom wall cabinets. These can easily become the main attraction of your bathroom, which means that you want to get it right the first time. But how do you choose bathroom furniture that not only looks good but checks everything off your list of needs? Do you follow the trends or strike out on your own?
The big feature to keep in mind is “space.” Much like a modern painter or graphic designer manipulates and exploits the white space on his or her canvas, so too does floating bathroom wall cabinets help an interior designer exploit the “space” on his or her bathroom wall to maximize the visual impact of the vanity on the overall bathroom aesthetic.
Floating bathroom cabinets give up more space
Now, we are not talking about some magical bathroom cabinets that actually float but rather a stylish, modern consideration for your bathroom that at the very least can help create the illusion of more space. Whether you need less or more storage, floating bathroom wall cabinets offer drawers, cabinets, and open shelving options. You can pick what works best for you.
The main advantage of a floating cabinet is the illusion of space it creates in the room; the room seems bigger because of the light that passes beneath it. In a small bathroom where space is already a premium, adding a strip or spotlighting beneath the furniture helps to enhance the illusion of additional space. It also makes the bathroom less cluttered and simpler, rendering it easier to keep clean, a plus in any home.
Light but definitely durable
Generally speaking, floating bathroom wall cabinets are much easier to move as they are lighter than traditional vanities. While installation could prove to be a challenge, it’s nothing an experienced contractor can’t handle easily. But as far as moving them goes, they are extremely light and easy to move around. This can be invaluable if you are remodeling your bathroom.
However, don’t let this fool you. They may be light, but they are extremely durable and can last much longer than your typical bathroom vanities. They are built to resist humidity and are bound to remain trendy for a while.
Floating bathroom wall cabinets look great, but you have to make sure your plumbing is designed to work with it. Talk to your contractor or a professional plumber before making any decisions. Even if your style is modern or contemporary, floating bathroom wall cabinets are still not for everyone. Consider all your space and storage needs, the product needs of the entire bathroom, who will be using the bathroom and what your priorities are for designing a bathroom and selecting the best bathroom cabinets. And if you do decide to go with the “flow”, get ready to enjoy a sleek and stylish new bathroom.
