Bathroom Furniture - Important Considerations For Bathroom Cabinets

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 98

Any accessory or fitting that you can put in your bathroom can be considered as bathroom furniture. Examples are cabinets, vanity units, shower enclosures, mirrors, among many others. The focus of this article is on bathroom cabinets. Outlined below are some things you can consider when you want to put bathroom cabinets in your bathroom.

Use water-proof material - The bathroom is an area of the house, generally referred to by architects as a wet-area. As the name suggests, it is a place bound to be wet because of water. Also, when bathing, there is a lot of humidity in the bathroom. This means that the materials you use for the cabinets must be waterproof. If you have to use wood, the wood should be well treated so that it doesn't rot. Wood generally performs poorly in humid and wet areas but oak wood is a good option. However, if you use oak wood to make a cabinet, you will pay a lot of money. Some of the suggested materials that can be used, and which are waterproof, are glass, metal, PVC and stone. For cabinet surfaces, one can use hybrid planks such as wear-resisting plates, fire-proof plates or high polymer plates.

Cabinet position - There are mainly two ways in which the bathroom cabinet can be positioned. It can either stand freely on the floor or can be hung on the wall. Depending on your taste and style, you can choose where to place the cabinet. If you have a family, it is advisable to have a wall-hung cabinet. If you have a spacious bathroom and there are distinct partitions between wet and dry area, then you can have a floor-type cabinet. However, the material you use for the floor-type cabinet should be waterproof as it can get wet easily.

Paint - The bathroom cabinet should be painted with environment-friendly oil paints. The paint is applied both on the surface and on the inside of the cabinet. There are several ways to check whether the cabinet has been painted well. They are outlined below:

- Check whether the painted cabinet has a glossy touch - Check whether there are colour shadings on it - Check for sagging - Check for brush marks and peeling - Check for evenness and thickness of the paint film

With the information provided above, you can be able to look for a bathroom cabinet that meets your requirements and have it installed in the right way.

We provide the best information on Bathroom Furniture and Bathroom Cabinets you can use in your bathroom.
