I love storage. I need
storage. But I don't love bulky vanity sinks. As we renovate our bathroom, I find myself gravitating toward pedestal or console sinks, but I am not ready to give up all the wonderful storage space our current 1980s double vanity provides. Because our master bath also happens to be the main guest bathroom, we need a place to hide away our family's medicines and toiletries. But where?
I know I could look for a cool vintage piece on Craigslist or at estate sales. And I have my eyes peeled. But what about storage furniture made specifically for the bathroom? What about the standard retail options out there? I have been scouring the internet for tall storage cabinets that have a little footprint but provide a lot of cabinet and storage space. To limit visual clutter and mess, I prefer shelving with cabinet doors that close to open shelves.
I could get two such cabinets to flank a single sink. Or just a single cabinet for one side of the sink and a piece of art above a towel rack (or other wall-mounted accessory) on the other side to create a feeling of balance. Shopping for bathroom furniture without a bathroom designer or contractor (who can go directly to a wholesaler) can be tough, though. Below are some of the retail options I have come up with. But I would love your suggestions.
Do you have any good sources for floor cabinets for the bathroom?
