Choosing the Right Materials

When selecting the material for your bathroom cabinetry, it is important to choose a durable option that can withstand the humid and moist conditions prevalent in bathrooms.  

Solid hardwoods, such as oak or maple, are a popular choice due to their timeless appeal and ability to resist warping.

If you prefer a more modern look, you can use engineered wood or laminate which offer excellent moisture resistance while providing various design options.

Note: The material of your cabinets must be sturdy enough to support the weight of quartz or marble countertops.

Customize Your Cabinets with Finishes

When it comes to designing the perfect custom cabinets, there is more to consider than just the materials used. While choosing high-quality materials is essential for durability and aesthetics, it is equally important to pick an appropriate surface finish.  

The surface finish not only enhances the overall look of your cabinetry but also plays a crucial role in protecting it from moisture and daily wear and tear.

  • Painted: This type of finish offers a clean and polished look, making it suitable for contemporary or modern bathroom designs. It can be customized with any color you desire, allowing you to match your cabinets with other elements in the room. Additionally, a painted finish provides an extra layer of protection against moisture damage, ensuring that your bath cabinets will remain in pristine condition for years to come.

  • Stained: Wood stain offers a classic and elegant look that can enhance the overall aesthetic of any bathroom. With an array of colors and shades to choose from, you can easily find a wood stain that matches your desired style and complements existing décor. Stained wood also provides durability and longevity to your custom bath cabinets. It penetrates deep into the wood fibers, protecting them from moisture damage or warping over time.

  • Laminate: One of the main advantages of laminate is its durability. Laminate resists moisture and remains unaffected by these conditions, making it an excellent choice for bathroom cabinets. Additionally, laminate is highly resistant to scratches, stains, and fading from sunlight exposure.

Designing for Functionality and Style

When it comes to functionality, consider the layout and size of your bathroom.  

Opt for cabinets that offer ample storage space without overcrowding the area.

Utilize wall-mounted cabinets or vanities with built-in drawers and shelves to maximize vertical space. Additionally, incorporate features like soft-close doors and drawers that prevent slamming and provide smooth operation.

In terms of style, think about the overall theme of your bathroom. Are you going for a traditional look or a modern aesthetic? Choose cabinet designs and hardware options that complement this theme while adding a unique touch to the space.  

Note: Take note of the location of your plumbing. Depending on whether your plumbing is located on the wall or floor, you may need either a wall-mounted or floor-mounted cabinet system.

Maximizing Storage Space

When creating a spa-like haven in your bathroom, one of the key factors is having ample storage.  

From towels and toiletries to beauty products and cleaning supplies, custom cabinets offer the ideal solution for keeping everything within reach yet neatly tucked away.


  • Floor-to-ceiling built-ins
  • Deep pullout drawers with adjustable dividers  
  • Hidden storage behind mirrors
  • Floating shelves
  • Customized compartments for hair tools & toiletries  
  • Linen storage units  
  • Vanities with hidden storage

Say goodbye to cluttered countertops and limited space for skincare products; with the right built-in storage solutions, you can transform your bathroom into a serene oasis!

Infuse Personality Into Your Space

To make a statement, don't be afraid to experiment with color and texture. Gone are the days of plain white cabinets blending into the background, nowadays, homeowners are opting for bold and vibrant colors to add personality and style to their bathrooms.  

One popular trend is incorporating deep jewel tones like emerald green or sapphire blue into the bathroom to instantly elevate the space and create a sense of luxury. Paired with gold or brass hardware, colorful cabinets become an eye-catching focal point.

Additionally, textured finishes such as wood grain or distressed paint can add depth and dimension to your cabinetry, giving it a unique character that sets it apart from traditional big box store options.
