Tips on Choosing Your Bathroom Furniture

Sep 16, 2008
When building a home, we do not neglect the fact that most of our time will be spent in bathrooms. We could be taking a bath, using the toilet, preparing to go out, preparing to sleep, or merely brushing your teeth after every meal. Half of the day is spent on using the bathroom. In rational computations, the bathroom is the most used room in the house compared to the bedroom and the living room. So if we spend most of our time here, we should be choosing the perfect bathroom furniture for us to place in it.

To plan your bathroom furniture, think about the space that you have available to spare. You may draw a plan or a sketch of your desired bathroom and then later on figure out what kinds or types of furnishings you want in it. What do you want to do in your bathroom? This is a major question whenever deciding on what bathroom furniture to buy. Are you the type who has fast paced living and does not require a tub? A shower enclosure would do. Of course we never forget the toilet seat. A bidet is optional for those people who have money to spare. Your lavatory or sink will have to match them as well, color and make. Nowadays it is popular to furnish your bathroom with stainless steel. The theme is very modern and is also maintenance free. It doesn't chip, easy to clean and also not prone to many bacteria and germs.

Next is the type of storage requirement you want. Do you need a medicine cabinet, drawer, towel and robe closet, and the likes? After pondering on this, look at your sketch and plan on where to put these storage areas. Will the closet be the first thing you need when you enter your bathroom? Is your medicine cabinet placed right above your vanity or somewhere else? Thoughts like these will help you decide on what kinds and colors your storage areas would be.

Another thing to think about is how long you usually stay in your bathroom. If you are the type who spends hours in the bathroom without doing anything productive at all, you may want to integrate a magazine rack somewhere near the toilet seat and the tub. Music equipment is also fine as long as you are careful in arranging the cables since a bathroom always have water present.

Finally, do not forget about the little details which make your bathroom furniture as complete as it can be. Your towel racks, soap dishes, tissue handles, shower and faucet heads and knobs, toothbrush holder etc. Additional items would be the rugs, first aid kit and of course, your indoor decors. Always remember, a bathroom is an essential if not the most important room in our house. People can live in a house without a bedroom but cannot live without a bathroom. If my bathroom is well arranged, clean and spacious, I could very well sleep there. What do you need a bedroom for? Choose your bathroom furniture wisely.
