Choosing the Right Bathroom Furniture

Bathroom furniture is sometimes low on the shopping list when it comes to upgrading this important space. But there are a number of good reasons why it shouldn’t be. The bathroom is one of the most frequently used rooms in the home, so choosing the right furniture is essential. Without it, your lovely bathroom could end up looking like a hurricane’s blown through it.

Here at Bussens, we’ve been helping people choose the right bathroom furniture for over 40 years. We understand what works and what doesn’t, and we’ll give you all the help and advice you need. Here are some of our top tips on making the very best of this little oasis within your home.


Design, layout and available space

Design: With our experience of bathroom installation, we recognise the importance of matching bathroom furniture to the existing design. Your style could be classic and traditional or smart and contemporary — it’s all about personal taste. Whatever your preference, your choice of furniture should blend with your bathroom suite and decor.

Layout: Take some time to consider the way your bathroom is laid out, i.e., is it square, narrow, L-shaped, etc.? Taking note of this will inform your choice of furniture. If the room is narrow, for example, try not to make it narrower with furniture that’s too deep. The extensive range of cabinets, cupboards and shelving available should make this process easier.

Available space: How much wall space do you have for cabinets or shelves? What kind of floor space is available? Is there an alcove somewhere that isn’t being utilised? These are all questions you need to consider when selecting the right bathroom furniture. Choosing the items that will make the most of your space is one of the tenets of good design.


Storage space

A family bathroom is used on a regular basis, particularly if there are young adults in the house. Inevitably, personal items will start to accumulate, and if there’s nowhere to put them the effect can be messy.


Bathroom cabinets are a practical and attractive way to lessen the clutter. They’re available in a range of styles, sizes, and finishes suiting every kind of bathroom. Shavers, hair products, lotions and potions can all be stored out of sight, but are still convenient for when you need them.

Vanity units

Vanity units and washstands are another great way to keep your bathroom looking the way you want it to. The variety of styles means there’s a unit for every taste, from traditional and rustic to sleek and modern.

Bathroom furniture sets

For even greater coordination, bathroom furniture sets can add style and additional storage to any type of bathroom. With options ranging from tall cabinets to floor-standing cupboards, they’re both practical and attractive.


Open shelving is currently growing in popularity, and is a great way to utilise free wall space. Floating shelves can also be used to display decorative items, adding a dash of personality to your bathroom.
