If your current bathroom makes your morning routine more difficult than it needs to be, you might like to try some fitted bathroom furniture for size.
However much storage you need, and however you use your bathroom, there’s a cabinet, unit, or set of drawers to suit your requirements, meaning your room will be neatly squared off and easy to navigate around, and your bathroom accoutrements will all be tidied away in as many spacious drawers and cupboards as you feel you need.
If you and your partner fight to get out of the door at the same time each morning, for example, you can choose two basin units set a short distance apart, so all you have to share while you’re shaving or brushing your teeth is an extra large mirror (little sacrifice there, when mirrors can easily stretch the full length of a wall, if required).
If you’ve got a calmer morning routine but have a lot of clutter piled up on your bathroom surfaces, you might prefer to opt for a single wide basin unit with a couple of large cupboards below, where you can store your necessities. And a wide range of bathroom cabinets, large and small, is available to turn even the most annoying alcove into storage heaven.
Arrange your furniture to suit yourself and your family: the WC doesn’t need to be at the opposite end of the room from the basin if you’d prefer the two were side-by-side, and you could choose a larger, luxurious, walk-in shower enclosure if you save space elsewhere with combination units.
The choice of bathroom furniture readily available includes back to wall and wall hung WC units and basin units (or combination WC and basin units for tight spaces), plus storage units, drawer units, cabinets, open shelving, and linen units, in a range of styles and finishes from glossy white to natural wood tones, and a variety of different colours. Your surfaces can be chosen in coordinated or contrasting finishes, depending on your preference, and your units can all be chosen in standard depth or slimline for a narrower bathroom. When you’ve picked your perfect toilet, taps and handles, your fitted bathroom will suit your style as well as your lifestyle.
