Furniture Appeal

One of the biggest trends in bathroom design is cabinetry that resembles furniture, with legs and open shelves where bottles, towels and other attractive items can be showcased. Repurposed hutches and vintage dressers can even be used as vanities, creating a beautiful focal point in the bathroom. Image courtesy of Wellborn Cabinets

Sleek Cabinets

Some homeowners are forgoing cabinetry with ornate panels and trim in favor of flat-front cabinets, which are easier to clean.

Open Shelving

Open shelving is a versatile and aesthetically pleasing storage option for a bathroom. Shelves can be tucked into a variety of spaces, including above the shower head for keeping towels, or underneath and to the sides of a vanity. Image courtesy of QualityCabinets

Freestanding Vanity

Freestanding vanities are especially popular in powder rooms or half baths, where they can make a big statement. Many companies specialize in custom-built freestanding vanities, which are intended to look every bit as authentic as original antiques. Image courtesy of Native Trails

Medicine Cabinet

Medicine cabinets have undergone a facelift and functional redesign. Today's options are deeper, with places to plug in appliances. Some even come with built-in television screens, such as this medicine cabinet by Robern.

Storage Accessories

Storage is a high priority in the bathroom, and in such a small space there never seems to be enough room to stow toiletries, linens and more. Pull-out organizers, drawer dividers and built-in laundry areas help maximize storage space in the bathroom. Image courtesy of Kraftmaid

Laundry Storage

Bathroom cabinets are generally 32 inches tall, but taller cabinets — up to 34 inches — are growing in popularity because they're large enough to store laundry hampers. Image courtesy of Merillat

Added Privacy

Double vanities provide extra storage and personal space when a tall cabinet is installed between the two bathroom sinks. Image courtesy of Wood Mode
