Many of our clients are involved with bathroom remodeling in St. Louis, our hometown. When remodeling your bathroom, there are certain essential pieces of furniture that you’ll need to purchase. Here’s what you absolutely cannot skip when putting together your new bathroom.

Sink

A sink is probably the most important piece of furniture in the bathroom, because it is very functional. Recently, we’ve seen many people choose to opt for very atypical sinks when assembling their bathrooms. Instead of the traditional porcelain sink embedded into the vanity cabinet, many are instead opting to install basins or floating sinks. You’ll also want to consider the fixtures on your sink when doing your shopping.

Vanity Cabinet

The vanity cabinet and the sink go hand in hand, so you should spend just as much time looking for a great vanity as you do for your sink. As previously mentioned, some people choose not to include a vanity cabinet in their bathroom, but many people find it very useful for storing toiletries, towels, and other bathroom essentials.

Mirror

A great mirror is often the centerpiece of the bathroom, so it’s absolutely crucial that you have one you love. The mirror is a way to show off your personality and your style, and there are so many shapes and types to choose from. If your bathroom is modern, you may want to go with a large mirror with very little border. However, if your space is more rustic, a smaller, round antique is a better choices.

Shower Curtain

Your shower curtain takes up a lot of space, so you’ll want to make sure that it really fits well with your existing bathroom. The shower curtain is the perfect opportunity to add a pop of color to your space without being overbearing. You may also want to go for a fun print if your style is particularly bold.

Lighting

The lighting in your bathroom really makes a difference in the overall feel of the room. While you can always go for recessed lighting, this often makes the space feel cold and uncomfortable. Instead, consider a hanging lighting piece or wall sconces. Both lighting options tend to give off a feel that is much warmer and more welcoming than recessed lighting.

Top off your essential furniture with fun decorative pieces, such as wall art, candles, and soap dispensers. These are easy ways to add some personality to the space.
