When selecting any furniture to add to your bathroom, you want to be assured that before you purchase the particular piece of furniture, you have taken full account of any considerations. These considerations could be all from the unit size to any features included. However, what type of doors the unit has is one factor that some people may overlook. This contemplation doesn’t matter much to some pieces of furniture, but it’s something you should think about when selecting bathroom cabinets.
Bathroom cabinets, known for their elegant designs and added storage space, are created with inclusive storage space and opened by a door. While you may think there’s a generic door option to choose from, because of the popular appeal of adding cabinets to the bathroom, there’s now a wide variety of different types of doors to choose from and each has its own charm.
This round-up of available door options should help you choose the right cabinet for your bathroom with the right door (or doors!) to complement your existing bathroom setting.
A common addition to most bathrooms is the bathroom cabinets with a solo door. The simplicity of design means that they can easily complement most bathroom set-ups or simply add minimalist flair to a bathroom with low-key style. However, one thing to consider when buying a single-door cabinet is whether there is enough storage space inside the cabinet as some single-door bathroom cabinets are slightly smaller than other cabinets-making them an ideal option for a more compact bathroom.
Unlike the minimalist design of single-door cabinets, there are double-door bathroom cabinets. These specific cabinets are perfect for adding to the bathroom a bold focal feature as the dual doors will certainly make an impressive statement in any bathroom. The additional storage space is another advantage in choosing double doors.
Before buying a double door cabinet, it is advisable to check that each door can be opened comfortably within your bathroom space without banging into any other vanities-so double door cabinets may not be a good option for smaller bathrooms or compact suites.
Similar to double-door cabinets, triple-door cabinets also provide ample storage space to make them perfect for those sharing a bathroom. As the triple doors section off different cabinet areas, each area can be labeled to signal a specific section or shelf for each member of the family-a great idea to avoid any messy bathroom clutter!
Although a triple-door cabinet’s generous storage space may seem ideal, remember to check the space in your bathroom before purchasing a triple-door cabinet as usually a cabinet of this size will only complement a larger bathroom setting.
Many cabinets operate on hinges to open the doors, but this may mean that you may need to lean back and forth to access the shelf. One type of cabinet that removes hinged door obstruction is a sliding door bathroom cabinet.
Sliding door bathroom cabinets have doors that work on a smooth sliding mechanism, making them a great option for anyone who wants easy access to their bathroom cabinet. If you are interested in buying a sliding door cabinet, make sure you check the cabinet side areas to allow the doors to open smoothly without being blocked by any nearby vanities or shelves.
Doors that are mirrored.
The doors that have mirrored fronts are probably the most popular choice for bathroom cabinets. The appeal comes from their multi-functionality, first acting as a cabinet door but then acting as a mirror that can greatly assist any morning routine.
Before you buy a cabinet with a mirrored door, it is important to check whether the cabinet can be installed at face level in order to avoid any difficult bending or access to the mirror.
