Bathroom unit buying guide
Step 1: plan the space for your bathroom units
When you're designing your bathroom, the first thing you need to think about is the space you're allocating to bathroom units. This is particularly true of bathroom units with a sink: depending on the space available, you might want to combine wall-mounted column units with open shelving, cabinets and mirrors, etc. in different positions.
We recommend you measure the space with a tape measure - the simplest way of knowing the precise amount of space available - as well as thinking about our tips in this post: How to plan your bathroom layout.
Step 2: bathrooms units to suit your needs
All bathrooms are different, as are the potential layout options for your bathroom units. But whichever you go for, the most important thing is to make sure it's a convenient layout for your everyday use of the space.
A functional, wall-mounted bathroom unit will lend a sense of spaciousness to the room, as well as making cleaning easier; whereas a freestanding vanity unit (with a washbasin) gives you optimum storage - and organisation is always key in the bathroom. Both options are perfect for combining with other modules.
Step 3: designs and finishes you'll fall in love with
The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the home. And when you inject it with your own personality, the time you spend there will be one of your favourite times of the day.
