What Houzz contributors are saying:
Cabinet Design 101Cabinet designers need to balance two things: style and function.With garage cabinets, for example, storage and function are probably much more important than style. For a powder room vanity, the function (a place to wash your hands) is easily achieved, and style becomes the more important factor, which is why we see such a wide variety in powder room vanity styles. They all meet the functional criteria, but the look is limited only by the imagination. In just about all other areas of the home, we see more of a balance between the functionality of the cabinets and the look and feel of the space. A good cabinet designer understands the basic functional requirements for different types of cabinets (media, kitchen, display) and fulfills them with seeming effortlessness while also providing fresh design.Find cabinet professionals near you
This minimalist bathroom gets its design punch for a mix of textures. Here we see walnut wood against mica wallpaper. Hanging the vanity and cabinets from the wall allows the eye to extend across the floor, making the room feel larger.
