Built-in bathroom furniture is similar in concept to kitchen units, in that they are modular, and can be fitted together to create a built-in look. Style wise, these units are also similar to kitchens, with shaker designs, solid colours, gloss white and woodgrain finishes available to give you plenty of choice, depending on the look you are trying to achieve.
Again, as with kitchens, bathroom furniture can come ready assembled or flat packed. Some manufacturers use one carcass colour and offer different door options, but the better units have colour co-ordinated carcasses. Linen baskets, towel rails and optional door handles may also be offered.
Most manufacturers of bathroom furniture will require the room to be adequately ventilated to ensure humidity levels do not get too high, which could damage the units.
