The bathroom is a very important place to be organized and updated on a yearly basis. The beauty of custom cabinetry is that it opens the space and yet makes the usage and storage needs more efficient.
In a bathroom, just like the kitchen you have to do the space planning first that allows you to know how the space in general will work. Then you go into the detail of where the cabinetry is and what the storage needs are inside the cabinetry as the person functions in the space. First, I draw the layout of the cabinetry. Then I go into the cabinetry detail itself and outline all of the individual drawers and shelving locations and what each shelf and drawer will contain.
This bathroom was a typical master bathroom shared by two people. So each person has their own sink over the cabinet and each person has individual needs for storage space underneath and next to the sink. Their basic needs were met in the overall sink cabinet. That means their items such as their tooth brushes, hair dryers and whatnot were all contained in that location. The other cabinet to the right was used also for stage and display and had more of the backup or specialty storage. The smaller curio cabinet drawers, which resemble and antique tea or spice storage cabinet from Europe, holds lots of little goodies and personal items for grooming. Again, the overall design of the cabinetry was vintage furniture quality with inset beaded doors, but also done with cleaner lines and light colors to modernize it.
