Bathroom Wall Cabinets

Increase Bathroom Storage Space by Installing a Bathroom Wall Cabinet

By Mark J. Donovan

Bathroom wall cabinets are perfect for all types of bathrooms, but they are most ideal for small bathrooms. They are also great for the bathroom that lacks a closet, and they are wonderful for preventing bathroom clutter. A bathroom wall cabinet is used for storing toiletries, towels, medicines and hygiene products. A bathroom wall cabinet is also an excellent alternative to a bathroom vanity if the bathroom design calls for a pedestal sink.

Bathroom wall cabinets come in many different shapes and sizes, and they can be constructed out of a number of materials including wood, metal, glass and even wicker.

Some bathroom wall cabinet types include cabinet doors, while others do not. Corner wall cabinets can also be found.

Some bathroom wall cabinet doors can also include window panes or glazing. In addition, bathroom wall cabinet shelving can be fixed or adjustable depending upon the size and type you purchase. Adjustable shelving can be very useful as you can adapt the bathroom wall cabinet to your storage needs as they change.

Bathroom wall cabinets are commonly installed over toilets and sink faucets. When mounting a wall mount cabinet, 2-1/2 inch long screws should be used.

Install a bathroom wall cabinet to gain more storage space in your bathroom.

The screws should penetrate through the top and bottom cabinet rail supports and into the wall studs. A bathroom wall cabinet can weigh a great deal when fully loaded with sundries.

The last thing you want is to have the bathroom wall cabinet pull away from or fall off the wall, particularly if you have valuable glass or ceramic knick-knacks sitting on it.

Using 2-1/2 inch screws, and making sure they are penetrating into wall studs, will prevent this situation from happening.

So if you are looking for more bathroom storage space, consider installing a bathroom wall cabinet. Besides coming in many different shapes and sizes, they are available in a plethora of styles to satisfy any type of bathroom design.
