Bathroom Furniture Faux-Pas – How to get it Right!
Nothing can dampen the look of a bathroom quite like a bathroom furniture faux-pas. Bathroom furniture mistakes can be summarised in various different ways but are mostly furniture pieces that simply ruin the overall look of the bathroom. Furniture that is broken, out of date or simply unsightly can instantly age the look of a bathroom – even if the surrounding decor and bath suite is actually quite modern. However, fear not, if your bathroom features a furniture blunder, there are ways that you can fix this and and refresh your bathroom setting with quality bathroom furniture in the process.
One of the main bathroom furniture faux-pas is broken furniture. Usually as a result of overfilling drawers, shelves and storage units with a serious amount of bathroom clutter, the wear and tear of filling units over time can cause drawers to break off or doors to snap at their hinges. Once bathroom furniture becomes broken it gives the bathroom a dated look. Another negative impact of broken furniture is that if any storage units become broken then the clutter that you had initially tidied neatly away will become exposed to give off a messy vibe to the room.
To combat this untidy look, it is best to fix any broken units as soon as they become broken as not only are they unsightly features to the room but as you could trip or fall over broken pieces, they are also a hazard to the room. It is important to remember that if a broken unit is beyond repair then you should replace the unit promptly.
Another way that you can go wrong with bathroom furniture is through having outdated units in the bathroom. Contemporary bathroom furniture trends sees modern styled units in stylish gloss finishes however if your furniture is decades old then it is likely it will carry an aged look to it that will instantly date your bathroom setting. Bulky furniture pieces that take on a practicality over style function will give any bathroom a drab look. Due to the rising popularity of bathroom furniture designs, there are countless options available that are elegantly styled yet maintain a level of practicality with generous storage space. By updating the bathroom with these contemporary units you will update the look of your bathroom too!
Finally, one of the most common ways of ruining the modern look of a bathroom is through selecting furniture on the basis of quantity over quality. While it can be said that adding bathroom furniture does bring interior design flair to the room, if you add too many units it can overwhelm the room and create a lacklustre and cramped environment. To solve this, opt for wall mounted units over freestanding pieces. Wall mounted furniture frees up any valuable floor space to maximise the size of the room while acting as statement pieces of furniture to complement the overall bathroom setting.
