If you are looking to remodel your bathroom with contemporary wall cabinets, here are some popular ideas this year. First, you need some inspiration to help decide which direction you want to go in. Then, begin figuring out your budget. Remember, remodeling can be expensive, especially in a recession. However, the other side of this coin is that contractor's are feeling similar pressures, so if you have the money, now may be the best time to remodel because you can probably find a great deal in the down market. Below is a list of a few great contemporary bathroom cabinet ideas that will make your home look great.
Placing your cabinets under the sink is a great idea for those who want to maximize space, and unencumbered your bathroom. If you live in a city, or have a small bathroom, cabinets under the sink can create a large storage space, and hide ugly and exposed pipes at the same time. In addition, bathrooms look incredibly larger when a big mirror is installed, and having the cabinets underneath the sink gives you the space to do this. Talk to your contractor and figure out what type of material to build the cabinets out of. If you are on a tight budget, faux wood or linoleum is always an option, and modern technology has made these very practical and tasteful options.
For those who want their bathroom to stick out, the handle of your bathroom wall cabinets can be a great venue to express a little creativity. A great, and very contemporary, idea is to use a large knot instead of a traditional handle. The knot can be as simple as the one you used to swing from on a rope as a child. You will be sure to get comments from your friends and guests about this bold move. At the other end of the spectrum is a no-handle cabinet, where a simple push springs the cabinet out. This is ideal for a minimalist who wants their bathroom to be kept simple.
In addition to cabinets with doors, a simple cubby space is a great place to store towels or other frequently used toiletries. Have your bathroom look like a four star hotel and roll or neatly fold some bath or hand towels for guests and family members. They will greatly appreciate the gesture and you will make great use of the space. In addition, you won’t have to worry about cabinet doors breaking or becoming faulty, which will make your investment last. The cubby idea works great when paired with a few cabinets as well.
Contemporary bathrooms are great because they can be shaped to go with any home's motif. Choose a color or material that complements your house, but make sure your investment will stand the test of time. When cabinets are done right, they can make a home worth a lot more. When done wrong or recklessly, they take it down a few notches.
