Bathroom Flooring and Cabinetry | Best Pick Reports
The cabinetry in a bathroom is
usually limited and as such forms a smaller element of the design. However,
with the wide array of styles available now, even a small vanity cabinet can
still have a dramatic effect on the room. Aside from choosing the look of the
cabinets, there is also a choice between custom and stock cabinetry.
Custom-made cabinets are the most expensive type, though partially custom
options are available at a lower price point. Stock cabinetry is purchased off
the shelf and is the least expensive option, with the compromise being a
limited selection of sizes and styles.
Floors in wet areas like bathrooms
are usually hard surfaces, such as tile. However, well-sealed hardwood floors
are popular as well. Be sure to consider how much daily use and moisture the
floor will see to make the best decision on a material in terms of durability
and wear. For bathrooms in particular, homeowners may want to install radiant
underfloor heating to provide comfort in the colder months.
