Remodelling Your Bathroom Cabinets: Some Things to Think About

Remodelling your bathroom can be hard work. Here are some of the features you should look out for when ordering a new set of bathroom cabinets for your remodelling project. 


If you're working in a tight space, you can often mount the drawers as part of the cabinetry, with the legs extending through the wall behind the sink. On the other hand, if the drawers of the cabinetry are too large, you can remove them and add cabinet dividers in their place. Doing so can allow you to install cabinets without having to worry if a drawer extends too far into your bathroom. If this were to happen it could place you and your family at risk of injury. 


Cabinet mirrors come in a variety of finishes, so choose one that matches the paint on the wall. Matching the trim colour for the cabinetry is also a good idea. In the past, there were several materials used for the drawer bottoms. Today there are just two: A solid laminate (solid hardwood or veneer) and a veneered laminate. One of the advantages of this is that, unlike the solid oak drawers that were popular in the past, the veneer draws can be made with any wood — walnut, mahogany, cherry or birch. This can help you to keep prices low.

Door matching

It's a good idea to match the doors to the cabinetry doors, especially for your medicine cabinets. If you need to upgrade the finish of the door, this is a good way to do it. It's also nice to have a matching pair, rather than one at each end of the bathroom, which will add visual appeal.


It's not a good idea to paint your cabinets white unless you're doing a partial remodel or a renovation. A good option is to paint the cabinetry in your bathroom, including the drawers, with a contrasting trim colour. Many of today's cabinet manufacturers offer attractive trim finishes, such as gold-plated hinges, painted surrounds and much more. You should also make sure that the veneer and trim match so the interior vibe you wish to project to your friends, family and other visitors.
