Besides the kitchen, the bathroom is one of the first rooms often considered when it is time to remodel. No matter if you are planning a total overhaul or just making a few updates, bathroom cabinets are an easy way to make an impact. Aside from increasing style, many benefits come with adding cabinetry to your bathroom layout.
Bathroom cabinets are highly practical as a means to organize all your necessities such as soap, hair products, cosmetics, razors, extra towels, and medicines. Nobody wants to have all of that cluttering their countertops, so cabinets provide the space to keep your toiletries close at hand but out of sight. As well as keeping the bathroom clean, cabinets can hide unsightly plumbing or be a strong base to support granite countertops.
Depending on your budget, there are three types of cabinets you can choose for your bathroom. Stock cabinets will be the most inexpensive option but are often sold pre-assembled. There is not much room for personalization in either style or size. Semi-custom cabinets allow more freedom when it comes to size and features you may like while keeping the price reasonable. However, if you are working with a generous budget and want a unique bathroom, then you will want to consider custom cabinets.
Choosing the right cabinets for your bathroom can be overwhelming, as they come in so many different types of styles, colors, and materials. We've gathered 21 bathroom cabinet ideas to not only show the diversity available to you but help you determine what you like best. So let's get started!
1. Warm Craftsman
The quality construction of these cabinets and minimalistic ornamentation bring a casual look to this bathroom. The design with four doors and two open shelves in the center offers plenty of storage. The caramel stain used on the wood brings a lot of warmth to the room. Using the same material to frame out the mirror helps create unity.
2. Rustic Charm
Besides the amazing character this custom cabinet brings, there is so much storage space as well. Using drawers instead of cupboard doors allows you to organize all of your small bathroom items. Besides the base cabinet, there are also two medicine cabinets mounted on the wall, which serve a dual purpose. Storing medications here helps keep them out of reach of children, and the included mirror saves you money.
3. Luxuriously Large Bathroom
The white shaker cabinets used in this bathroom have a casual, clean appearance. This layout shows that you do not have to use only base cabinets but can use tall cabinets mounted on either side of the mirrors to create visual balance. Due to the sheer amount of cabinetry provided here, it delivers pure opulence. With this quantity of bathroom storage, you will not have any need for a linen closet.
4. Magnificient Mahogany
While white bathroom cabinets seem quite popular with the clean aesthetic they provide, do not be afraid of dark shades. Using richer woods, such as these mahogany cabinets, lends any bathroom an abundance of elegance. Clearly custom-made, these particular cabinets merge seamlessly into the ceiling and include recessed lighting.
5. Natural Pine
If you want a coastal, contemporary vibe for your bathroom, these pine cabinets definitely achieve that look. A tall cabinet over the toilet allows for storage of extra towels, as well as spare rolls of bath tissue. Meanwhile, the base cabinet hides the plumbing and gives more space to organize your things.
It is an exceptional decision to match the rest of the bathroom design to the material your cabinets are made of. It makes a statement, though, and gives it an orderly appearance.
6. Green With Envy
Bathroom cabinets are a great medium to experiment with color. You can choose any hue, but this sage green is very soothing. If you are looking to create a retreat in your master bath, green is the perfect color as it represents tranquility and renewal.

The cleaning supplies or plunger can be hidden away in the bottom half to keep things looking tidy.

Need a fun cabinet for the kid's bathroom? Or maybe you just want to bring some energy to your morning routine. Painting your bathroom cabinet a bright yellow is definitely one way to achieve that.
