A very basic bathroom suite is a toilet, a washbasin and a bath with matching taps and handles. However, there are more appliances, such as bidets, and extra items like cabinets, mirrors and storage solutions for the toiletries and other bathroom paraphernalia. Flexible cabinets, which have mirrors, lights and shaver sockets, are also available. The storage space being critical, the design should incorporate vanities on either side of pedestal sinks, with low-hung cabinets and even dressers for undergarments. Cabinets are normally furniture-grade and complement the bedroom furniture. The material used is oak or maple in natural or light tints.
Extra attention is paid to details such as outlets inside tower cabinets for hair dryers, electric shavers or other electrical appliances, as well as ironing boards and hampers built inside closets. Also, top cabinets
hide bathroom clutter while offering access to everything. The side cabinet, from the floor to hip level, is one of the latest trends. It comes with a washbasin and shelves to store the daily toiletries like the toothbrush, toothpaste, soaps and more. In the cabinet one can store towels and other linens.
The design of any bathroom will always include bathroom storage. One can find a combination sink/vanity for extra storage. A great bathroom design idea is that one can never have too much bathroom storage! One has to use the wall space wisely, with shelves or cabinets over the commode or almost anywhere in the bathroom. One can consider using corner shelves, and hanging towel bars above one another. Also, one can add a medicine cabinet with a mirror to the bathroom to store grooming supplies, medicine or toiletries. Traditionally, the medicine cabinet was always located above the vanity or sink, but nowadays one can place it elsewhere in the bathroom. One can also add a shower caddy to the corner shower for extra storage.
