Choosing new cabinets during the bathroom remodeling process can be an exciting step because it will help your vision fully come to life. Storage is an important component in any room, but between cleaning supplies, towels, toiletries, makeup, and other bath supplies, the cabinets are a crucial part of a bathroom's functionality and layout, as well as your day-to-day life.  Here's a quick guide to help make choosing those bathroom cabinets easier. 

What to Consider When Undertaking Bathroom Remodeling

1. Know Your Budget

The first step in a bathroom remodeling project is knowing your budget. Without having a maximum spending amount, as well as a set number for what you're willing and able to spend on each part of the process, it makes the project nearly impossible. It might also set you up for disappointment. Without a budget, there's a chance you'll be looking at fixtures that are too expensive, causing a quick start-over in the planning process. Sit down with the finances first and decide on a reasonable number. It'll make the rest of the project run smoother. 

2. Pick Your Storage Style

With bathroom cabinets, especially if you choose custom or semi-custom, the options are endless. Do you want to have some visibility storage-wise? Say, with some small wicker baskets in alcoves running along the top or the bottom of a set of drawers or doors? Or perhaps the desired style is all concealed away. Whatever the choice is, make a mood board or sketch your own design. The professionals will help provide options that work within both budget and style. 

3. Choose the Quality Grade 

There are a few different options for cabinet quality grade, which will mostly be informed by your stylistic choices, as well as the budget. Ready-to-assemble cabinets are the most budget-friendly choice because the materials tend to be lower quality, which means that while you'll save ahead of time, there might be some maintenance and repair fees in the future. 

Stock cabinets might be more budget and quality-friendly, but the options tend to be a little less available; as "stock" can be interchangeable with "example plans," these choices are "what you see is what you get."  Then we reach semi-custom and custom cabinets. The former allows for some choice and variety, but not necessarily in a way that allows for a perfect fit, while the latter means the world is your oyster.
