Ikea Bathroom Cabinets

Everybody knows that RTA Cabinets can save you a significant amount of money on your new kitchen or bathroom, but not everybody knows the difference between the various types of RTA Cabinets that are on the market. It seems like for every person who had a good experience with assembling and installing their own cabinets, there are just as many people who have horror stories from dealing with the wrong supplier or buying the wrong type of RTA Cabinets. In this article I am going to cover the differences between the various ready-to-assemble cabinets that are on the market so that you can ensure your experience is a positive one.

Materials- whether you are talking about custom, stock, or RTA cabinets, the materials used for the construction of the cabinets should be the biggest factor in what cabinets you are buying. The most common question that I get from customers is “what is the door made of?”. People want to make sure that the door is made of real wood, when in reality they should be more concerned with what the cabinet box is made of. 95% of the RTA Cabinets that are the market are going to have solid wood doors and face frames (if not, that should be a red flag!!). Where they differ will be what they use for the box and the back panel. There are a wide variety of materials that are used by manufacturers, including- plywood, fiberboard, particle board, MDF, and solid wood. Plywood and Solid wood are going to be your strongest cabinet box. There are several issues that you might have to deal with if you buy cabinets that use particle board or fiberboard with a veneer cover….. 1) if the material gets wet, fiberboard and particle board tend to swell or buckle 2) both materials tend break or split, especially screws or nails are used. Screws will have a tendency to lose their grip because the material is made of shredded wood or paper vs. a plywood or solid wood material. Ironically, most of the cabinets that you have to special order from Lowes or Home Depot are actually made of fiberboard with a veneer. For a strong, long lasting cabinet, make sure that the cabinet box is made of plywood or solid wood.

 

Bathroom Linen Cabinets

Bathroom linen cabinets are an excellent way to add elegance and serve as an ideal storage option to your lavatory. Cabinets are not only functional, but they are an attractive way to show off your bathroom while keeping your daily necessities in an accessible and convenient way.

These cabinets are naturally very simple and sleek looking in design. In choosing the right storage cabinet, it should suit the design of the bathroom to make to complement the entire look of the room.

There are corner cabinets, those with glass doors and drawers, stand up cabinets, as well as wall types. You may want to consider the storage with decorative shelves for holding candles or baskets so that you can add some decor to your bathroom at the same time.

Wall Mounted Bathroom Linen Cabinet

A wall mounted type of storage is perfect for people without a lot of space, but need just a little something to hold their linens or even their hairdryers, and other personal belongings to keep them out of reach of children.

This type of cabinet becomes part of the room so that it looks natural and updated as opposed to the previously bare bathrooms that people used for long time.

Since it is well recognized that many bathrooms do not have huge amounts of free space, cabinets are often designed to be tall and thin, while taking up very little space.

One of the principal benefits of having tall narrow cabinets is that your bathroom will be prearranged and you will know how to store new items.
