Unfinished Bathroom Vanities and Cabinets
Explore your options for unfinished bathroom vanities and cabinets, and prepare to install an efficient storage template in your bath space.
By: Sean McEvoy
Unfinished bathroom vanities and cabinets can be a great option if you're upgrading a bathroom space or designing a new one, and you want a blank design slate to work with. Starting with unfinished vanities and cabinets will allow you to incorporate your own personal style touch in terms of colors and finishes; if you prefer a more rough-hewn or rustic look, you could also choose to simply leave them unfinished.
When choosing unfinished bathroom vanities and cabinets, you'll first need to decide which design style is right for you. You can choose from a wide range of styles, from romantic, Victorian vanities to sleek, ultra-modern cabinets with efficient designs and no-frills hardware. Deciding which style is right for you is a matter of personal preference, but if unfinished cabinets and vanities are in the cards, you may find that more traditional styles are more readily available.
Once you've chosen your style, it's time to think about colors and finishes. There are myriad stains and finishes you can add to cabinets and vanities, from matte to extremely glossy. Again, this will likely be a matter of personal preference, and matching the overall style of the bathroom will also come into play. In terms of color, think about using the vanities and cabinets to add a vibrant, bold color statement to the bathroom—greens, yellows and bold blues can be great choices to liven up the space.
