Add Some Extra Light to Your Bathroom with Bathroom Cabinet Lighting


We all need ways to reduce the clutter in our bathrooms, which is why so many of us choose bathroom cupboards or vanity units. There is nothing worse than not having adequate storage in the bathroom area, you are left with towels strewn across the floor, make up on the window sill and shaving items on the side of the basin.

While storage is imperative to any bathroom design, being able to find things in the cupboards is just as important and even with the light on, you may find that your cupboard is too dark which is why you need bathroom cabinet lighting.

Bathroom cabinet lighting is not only ideal for over the cupboard or even in the cupboard, but this lighting can be used over a mirror or just as a handy additional light source that is guaranteed to lighten and brighten your bathrooms space.

Stylish Desgins

Bathroom cabinet lighting comes in a choice of stylish designs and I love placing mine over my vanity unit, so I always have light flowing onto the basin area.

Some of the designs include:

The single cone design is one of my favourites and will blend in with any bathroom design whether you have a modern or traditional bathroom. The metallic finish is perfect blending in with your taps and shower accessories. The cone design is elegant and sophisticated and guaranteed to enhance the bathroom space.

Another of my favourite bathroom cabinet lighting options is the single pumpkin design. Now while the name may sound a little strange, this cylindrical design is the perfect choice when your bathroom is filled with gentle curves and round or oval bathroom products. Also finished in metallic, these bathroom cabinet lighting options will blend in beautifully with your overall design.

If you have a double or large basin then the duo funnel design may be the right choice for you. These are so stylish in design and really complement the bathroom space, especially in the modern bathroom designs.

When you think of bathroom cabinet lighting chances are you think of an ugly light that is hidden inside your cabinet. The bathroom cabinet lighting designs can be used anywhere in your bathroom to add additional light to a darker area, to highlight your mirror or basins or to enhance a feature in the space.

Reduce Your Bathroom Clutter with Bathroom Cupboards


I think one of the most frustrating things in any bathroom is not having enough storage space. Without adequate storage your bathroom starts to look like a disaster zone with towels strewn everywhere, make up on the basin and hair products lining the window sill.

These days we all take such pride in our bathrooms, we try and achieve a modern look, a sophisticated finish and an elegant space, which is almost impossible when you have your bathroom items everywhere and nowhere to store them.

Style

The bathroom cupboards available come in a range of styles, helping you integrate them into your bathroom space with ease. I always prefer white, but that is just my own personal preference because I like the minimalistic design.

The bathroom cupboards come in a range of great single door designs, some have an additional drawer and some are elongated, perfect for the larger bathroom space.

Colour

Not everyone is keen on plain white, there are a host of bathroom cupboards available in black or even light wood helping you add texture to your design. Often you will choose to add a splash of colour to your bathroom, this may be a large freestanding bath in the centre of your bathroom with a black bath panel and you can combine that with black bathroom cupboards to enhance the space.

Size and Space

Whichever of the bathroom cupboards you choose whether it’s a smaller single drawer design or a larger design which includes a laundry hamper, the choice is up to you. The one thing you do need to take into consideration is how much space you have available in the bathroom for bathroom cupboards and which one will offer enough storage for all your items.

Some can be mounted on the wall while others can stand on the floor, this is also up to you and your bathroom layout and design. Often smaller bathrooms will benefit from wall mounted bathroom cupboards where you don’t compromise on the floor space.

These cupboards can also work as an art piece on the wall, a way to cover what would have been a bland and boring wall in the bathroom space. In the end the choice is yours and I would choose the one that best fits into the space and the one that is big enough to hold the family’s bathroom items.

Say No To Bathroom Clutter


I think one of the hardest things in a family bathroom is reducing the clutter. Think about it an average family of four will have a selection of hair products, shaving items, medicines and make up that needs a storage space, otherwise it ends up scattered throughout the bathroom.

A bathroom filled with clutter looks unclean, don’t get me wrong it can be the cleanest bathroom in the area, but with all the items strewn around it looks messy and when guests come to visit it can ruin the entire look of your home.

Add a Bathroom Cupboard

There is a solution to the bathroom clutter which gives you the ability to say “no” to the clutter and keep your bathroom neat and tidy. The bathroom cupboards available come in a range of shapes and designs to suit any bathroom layout from wall mounted high cupboards to the smaller shelf designs, the choice is up to you.

Here are a few of my favourites:

The Linda 25 base bathroom cupboards are ideal for smaller bathrooms, en-suites and cloakrooms. These units are white and minimalistic in design to suit even the most ultra modern bathroom design. There are two storage areas, a draw and a shelved cupboard below offering you ample storage space for all the bathroom clutter.

The Ilario Tall Cupboard is another of my favourites. These are available in a light Marango brown colour which adds a splash of colour to any bathroom design. These bathroom cupboards work well in any sized bathroom as they are mounted on the wall offering a sleek and modern design. The storage is more than enough for a family bathroom with two large storage sections separated by a draw and finished with thin metal handles which add elegance and style to the design.

My favourite of all the bathroom cupboards has to be the Zola Tall Cupboard. These are available in black with a long handle that really add elegance to any bathroom design. The great thing is that by adding the black bathroom cupboards you can enhance the space and the single door design adds to the appeal of this large storage area. These bathroom cupboards are ideal for the family bathroom with plenty of storage space, but they also work beautifully in the smaller bathroom mounted to the wall to offer convenience and practicality.

Back Lit Mirror Cabinets Ideal For Additional Bathroom Storage


The one thing that many bathrooms do not benefit from is additional storage. Often no matter what cupboards you place in your bathroom, you will always need more. The bottles of medicine, make up and shaving items can quickly build up and you need a good and stylish place to store them.

Always close the toilet lid when flushing. Flushing faeces can become airborne which is why you are always told to keep your toothbrush as far away from the toilet as possible.

If you are out and about this New Year be sure to wash your hands after flushing the toilet, there are so many bacteria on the toilet handle. Also be sure to use paper towel and not the hand dryers. Hand dryers can increase the bacteria on your hands by over one hundred and sixty percent.
