Fitted bathroom furniture can bring some serious storage benefits to a bathroom. Stylish fitted cupboards will streamline your room, decluttering and saving space for a more modern look.
Plus, fitted bathroom furniture works well in both small and large bathrooms, meaning everyone can achieve this look. For smaller rooms, choose wisely to create a feeling of space. All-white fittings, with glossy white walls and tiled flooring will achieve a light and airy feeling in the bathroom. Similarly, light pine fittings can add a traditional touch and give a feeling of open space in a small room.
If you're lucky enough to have a big bathroom, you can afford to be bold with your design, helping to create a luxury bathroom feel. Deep colours will warm the room, so choose opulent red to give your bathroom a glamorous makeover, or stick to more traditional blue walls and grey fittings, breaking up the block colour with well-placed soft furnishings.
Whatever you choose, it's so easy to shake up your bathroom with something new: If you opt for traditional, plain white fitted furniture, contemporary coloured walls will update your bathroom with a more stylish feel. A mix of clean white fittings and luxe wood will give your bathroom the ultimate hotel chic makeover, which will look great in any size room. Fitted bathrooms are also a great way to get more for your money if you need a rather cheap bathroom.
Plus, clever tricks and tips mean that even small rooms can get away with big design features. Opt for plinth-free cupboards in any finish, to give a feeling of more floor space, or mix bright colour with brilliant white fittings to give the illusion of a bigger room - and still achieve the desired result.
