How To Install Fitted Bathroom Furniture?
What Is Fitted Bathroom Furniture?
A series of units that fit together neatly comprises fitted bathroom furniture. This furniture provides generous storage space in your bathroom. The most common modern fitted bathroom furniture piece includes a washbasin and a vanity unit underneath it. Often, this unit consists of a countertop, as well.
A combo basin unit with storage space underneath and a WC unit that sit under a countertop is an example of more elaborate fitted bathroom furniture. Other fitted bathroom furniture pieces include tallboys and wall shelves for additional storage.
A complete modern fitted bathroom furniture suite includes a combination vanity unit, mirror cabinet, toilet, wall storage, and tallboy. The main feature of this sleek and stylish unit is it fits wall to wall. Another advantage is you have a selection of colours and sizes to pick from.
You can also create your own design. For instance, the ultra-slim, cohesive furniture structure of Slimline fitted bathroom furniture enables you to create your desired vanity unit.
Worried about the size of your bathroom? You don’t need to. The chief aim of fitted bathroom furniture is to maximise storage even in a small bathroom. Also, the sleek furniture will make your bathroom look neat and tidy. Another advantage is unsightly plumbing lines will be concealed.
