Storage and furniture

With the vast array of furniture that's now available, it's easier than ever to tailor your bathroom to suit your own particular needs. Everything should have its rightful place in the perfect bathroom, so storage is essential.

Careful planning is the first step towards creating your dream bathroom. So before anything else, give some thought to exactly how you use your bathroom. Choosing fitted furniture will streamline things, helping to give the illusion of more space. Modular furniture gives you the opportunity to add separate units and guarantees a modern, contemporary look. Either style will ensure your bathroom stays tidy and clutter-free.

Almost every bathroom suite sold in the UK is white but you can use furniture to introduce colour into the room. From subtle creams and greys, fresh blues and greens to bold reds and blacks. Using granite or glass for the counter tops and sleek handles for the doors gives a stunning and captivating look.

A generous run of units around a fashionable wash basin ensures there's plenty of hidden storage. It means all your cleaning products, loo rolls, shampoos, razors and even the kids toys can be carefully and cleverly concealed.

Not a pretty sight!

Behind closed doors

Plumbing paraphernalia isn't a pretty sight. By hiding it inside the furniture, all the pipe work becomes invisible from the outside, but is still accessible for maintenance. Many fitted ranges also offer built-in laundry baskets, so there's no excuse for dirty socks on the bathroom floor!

Don't forget about space above shoulder height. Very often this isn't used to full advantage so make the most of it with wall units and open shelving.

Adding a simple mirrored wall cabinet not only gives the illusion of space but also provides added functionality - some units have internal cosmetic mirrors, shaver points, magnets for tweezers and scissors, make-up compartments as well as demisters so that the mirror doesn't steam up.Keuco cabinet interior and Utopia shelving

Many cabinets offer lots of clever storage features like this example from Keuco. For a cleaner look, opt for floating shelves
