Free Standing Bathroom Storage Cabinets

A storage cabinet in a bathroom is ideal for storing linen, bath products or cleaning products. If you have a large bathroom with lots of free floor space, then you have the luxury of choosing the cabinet based on design and on how well it will go with the room’s decor. If your space is more limited however, the dimensions of the available area may be the most important factor in your decision.

A couple of examples below – the one on the right is my favorite. It has just enough detailing for me:

Of course, wall-mounted cabinets take up no floor space at all, but they are likely to be smaller and therefore contain less. The other thing to consider is that a wall cabinet needs some mounting hardware, and a bit of skill in order to mount it straight and securely. It’s quite possible that the free standing cabinet you choose will come in parts and need some assembly, but in general, this is a simpler process than wall mounting. Just read the instructions carefully, take your time and be patient.

Three more examples – all three of these are attractive enough to be placed in a living room, I think:

If your bathroom is small, you will most likely have to get a narrow cabinet: something with a small footprint that will not take up much floor space. You can make up somewhat for that narrowness by getting a model that is tall, and that thus provides more shelves. But there will still be a compromise involved: no matter how tall the unit, you will not be able to store wide items in it. Items like bath towels or a bathroom scale for example. If, however, a lot of space is available, then you will have a greater array of cabinets to choose from. You just have to decide on a width, height, color and style. Remember that if the cabinet you choose has a door or a drawer, you must be able to open it fully, without it hitting a sink, bathtub, toilet or counter. And try to pick a cabinet that will match the style of your bathroom.

Here’s a very basic model – practical but a bit lacking style-wise in my opinion:
