Who Will Use Your Bathroom Cabinets?

Consider the end user in your bathroom remodel, even when purchasing prefabricated cabinets. Materials, style, and hardware perform differently for different people. Body size, age and physical capabilities all have an impact on how well your bathroom cabinets will serve you and your family.

For example, very small or tall people may warrant low or high placement of cabinets of appropriate size. Elders appreciate smoother and less reaching hinges and drawers. Young children will keep fingers unharmed with slow-closing door hinges.

Personal habits are one of the factors which may guide consumers toward convenience. If you are choosing between a modern vanity/cabinet/countertop combo and an old-fashioned sink cabinet, ask yourself who will use it. Someone who likes to fill a countertop with shampoos, soaps and sundries will run out of space atop a sink cabinet.

Sink cabinets generally have a chest-style cupboard with wash and basin above and doors or drawers below.  These are popular with homeowners who value appearance over accessible storage or easy care and who are striving for a retro, picturesque effect.

To determine even the smallest of details, assess who makes use of your bathroom cabinets. Knobs, handles and drawer pulls should be friendly to the hands that use them. Do sliding mirrored doors above the vanity need handles? They do if small, sticky fingers are the most frequent users.
