Most modern builders tend to view bathroom cabinets as an area where they might use a lesser quality product. This is unfortunate because the conditions within the average bathroom – full of steam, accumulated moisture, and huge variations between heat and cold – can cause cabinetry to warp and even peel. This is particularly true when the cabinets rely on laminate materials instead of solid wood or wood veneers.
This means that one thing most homeowners will eventually need to do is to upgrade or improve their bathroom cabinets. Fortunately, there is a huge variety of styles and options available. There are pre-assembled cabinets and vanities, RTA cabinets (ready to assemble) options, and a variety of countertops suitable for all styles and designs as well.
Before just jumping into the project, however, it is best to consult with a knowledgeable bathroom expert in order to understand your options. Alternately, you could head online to find a range of modern bathroom cabinets available to order on an individual basis. You will soon discover that you can opt for frameless cabinets that give an incredibly “clean” and streamlined finish, or you can also stick with the more traditional faced options that have a hefty framing installed at the front of the cabinet.
The use of frameless cabinets will tend to make it easier to measure, but installation is a bit more “picky” and may require some professional assistance. Generally, your choices will be determined more by the style or design of the bathroom than anything else.
When you have made all of your cabinet choices you must refrain from tearing out the existing materials until all of the other necessary objects have arrived. This includes everything from the countertops and backsplashes to the new sink and any tiles or wall boards as well.
