If you’re not quite sure which bathroom cabinet design option will best serve your needs and meet your goals, this article is a great starting point to explore and understand your options.

Types of Bathroom Cabinets to Consider

The look and style of your bathroom cabinets will depend on the profile of the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, the color or stain you choose, the hardware finish for the hinges, drawer pulls, and door handles, and other design details. Together, these elements can create any type of aesthetic you desire, from a clean and modern look to a warm and charming style. Here’s how each of these elements contributes to the overall aesthetics of your bathroom cabinets:

  • Cabinet profile – The profile of your bathroom cabinets refers to the surface of the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. These can range from a completely flat and smooth profile, to simple or ornate designs carved into each door and drawer front to create a unique appearance.
  • Color, stain, and finish – Depending on the material of your cabinet doors, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of solid colors as well as stain options for wood cabinets. You can choose a lighter color to brighten up the space or a darker stain for a rich and luxurious aesthetic. Depending on the types of cabinet doors you choose, you may also be able to choose from a variety of finishes, ranging from matte to glossy.
  • Cabinet hardware – The cabinet hardware puts the finishing touch on the cabinet design. There are two primary decisions to make about the hardware. One is the design and profile of the hardware itself, which can vary from pull knobs to door handles in a variety of styles. Additionally, you’ll be able to choose a finish that suits your preferences, from dark oil-rubbed bronze and sleek brushed nickel to shiny chrome or warm gold.

When designing your custom cabinets, you’ll be able to mix and match these elements to create a style that perfectly suits your preferences. For example, if you’d like to achieve a more contemporary aesthetic, you may go for a flat profile, simple brushed nickel hardware, and a neutral solid color that offers understated elegance. Meanwhile, if you’d prefer a warmer, more traditional look, you may opt for a more ornate profile for the drawer fronts and cabinet doors, a warm stain that shows off the natural woodgrain, and a rubbed bronze finish for the cabinet hardware.
