Bathroom cabinets are essential for reducing clutter in your restroom and providing storage space for your toiletries, medications, and cosmetics. The long list of vanity cabinets on the market can easily be overwhelming when you’re trying to pick a cabinet for your bathroom.

The most common types of bathroom cabinets that you can use in your bathroom include louvered, beadboard, stenciled, flat style, and shaker-type cabinets (among others). These cabinets come in varying sizes, shapes, and styles to meet different storage and interior design needs.   

Common Types of Vanity Cabinets

The type of cabinetry you install in your bathroom will depend on the available space, your budget, and interior design preferences. These factors will also determine the vanity cabinet sizes you choose.

Here are some of the most popular types of vanity cabinets:

Louvered Cabinets

Louvered cabinets have wooden slats popularly referred to as louvers. These adjustable slats are inserted into the frame horizontally and overlap each other, leaving gaps to let air in and out when they are opened. These spaces are pre-measured for uniformity and consistent flow of air. There are grooves between the louvers to complete the louvered appearance.

These cabinets were traditionally made of wood but are now available in a wide range of materials, including metal, plastic, and glass. You can order pre-assembled, custom-made, portable, or functional louvers.

Shaker-Style Cabinets

Shaker-style cabinets were initially designed for kitchens but have found their way into the bathroom. They feature box or square edges and have four-cornered or pull-out panels.

Shaker vanity cabinets feature gentle curves and straight lines that give them a simpler, box appearance. Their doors contain two rails, two slats, and a center pane.

Stenciled Cabinets

Stenciled vanity cabinets add visual elements to a bathroom with their stenciled patterns. You should select patterns that match the overall theme of your bathroom. These cabinets are made from a variety of materials including wood, metal, glass, and plastic, giving you a range of options to work with.  

Stenciling can create attention-grabbing accents in your bathroom that will inspire you every time you walk into the room. 

Beadboard Cabinets

Beadboard cabinetry is perhaps the most misconstrued style in the history of cabinetmaking. Its unsophisticated appearance leaves many homeowners skeptical about its overall appeal, fearing that it might leave the rest of the bathroom looking too plain.

However, beadboard cabinets are very adaptable, which makes them ideal for a wide variety of bathroom styles and themes. A beadboard cabinet door comprises a four-piece frame and a center pane made of small boards of wood.

These center boards use tongue-in-groove construction with strips of wood running vertically. The tiny gaps between the slats form visible grooves to complete the beadboard style.

Flat-Style Cabinets

Flat-style cabinets are known for their somewhat sunken doors and clean lines. However, they don’t have raised panels or add-ons. They’re commonly found in modern bathrooms and are made from hardwood or medium-density fiberboards.
