Designing Your Custom Bathroom Cabinets

Bathroom cabinets are often overlooked, but they can easily turn a small room into somewhere with practical and stylish storage space. Custom bathroom cabinets, whether they’re within a vanity or independent from it, can be used to store towels, toiletries, medication, makeup, hair products, and more.

In this blog, we’ve got some tips to help you design your custom bathroom cabinets with The Kitchen Center.

Cabinet faces

The main appearance of your bathroom cabinets will be made up of the front face of them. We use a variety of solid woods to design quality custom bathroom cabinets. They can be simple flat-faced cabinet doors or finished with grooves and inlays to create a more detailed style. This depends on your style preferences and whether you’re looking for a more modern or traditional look for your bathroom. Recessed panel doors can provide an extra level of detail if you’re not a fan of plain, flat surfaces.

The finish you choose for your wood can also change its appearance dramatically. A simple, neutral paint color can be used to complement the style of the rest of the room. Grays and blacks are particularly popular for modern bathrooms. If you want to retain the natural grain of the wood in its style, then you might opt for a wood finish instead. You can then finish your cabinet faces in a wide range of wood shades.


The pièce de résistance of your bathroom cabinet doors is the hardware, i.e. the handle or whatever you will use to open it. You could go for a traditional handle or knob made from metal or wood, or you can choose a more minimalistic style where the handle is built into the cabinet door itself. If you have both cabinets and drawers in your vanity, then you can decide whether to match them or to choose contrasting handles that complement their style.


Designing bathroom cabinets isn’t just about how they look. They’re also about the practicality of the amount of storage they provide. Determine how much storage space you need to decide the size of your cabinets. Also, decide whether shelves and/or drawers will help to make your bathroom storage system more efficient.
