These washbasin cabinets are high on style and functionality

With bathroom designs getting plusher and more luxurious by the day, it may seem like the more functional, utilitarian details now take a backseat. However, simple décor tips and tricks help conceal these less aesthetic bits to let the interior design take centre stage. One of the most underrated pieces that allow this are bathroom cabinets. While from the outside, these blend in with the rest of the room’s design, inside, they conceal the messier odds and ends. But, what makes for a good bathroom cabinet design? We’ve rounded up a list of ten ideas for bathrooms in every Indian home.

1. The Best Service to Design the Perfect Bathroom Cabinets

While there’s always plenty of inspiration for bathroom cabinet design ideas, how does one choose the right one for their home? If you’re at a complete loss, you could always try the Beautiful Homes Service by Asian Paints. With a panel of expert designers and a dedicated project manager always close at hand each step of the way, you can look forward to a fuss-free solution for finding the best designs for every room in the house.

2. Bring in a Mix of Designs to Allow Multiple Options for Bathroom Cabinet Storage

When choosing a cabinet design, you don’t have to restrict yourself to one single pattern or size. First take stock of all the products, accessories and knick knacks you have to store. Then chart out what solutions for storage work best for you. For some sections, you could choose deeper and broader cabinet designs while for others, shallow drawers. To complement the wash basin design and make frequently used items more accessible, consider installing a wall-mounted mirror cupboard directly above the sink. If you have the space for it on the side, you could also think about building a bathroom cupboard to store the entire home’s linens and bathroom supplies.

3. A Bathroom Cabinet Design to Pair with a Timeless Monochrome Palette

If you’re always faced with the task of decluttering your bathroom or find the medicine cabinet cramped with too many things, a simple colour palette can help make the space feel more open and organised. As a rule of thumb, white or cream is the safest and brightest colour that can immediately make the smallest of spaces look bigger. If you’re worried about all-white wash basin designs with cabinets looking too plain or drab, pair it with other black-and-white fittings for a monochrome palette. As a combination that’s timeless and never goes out of style, a black and white bathroom design is a safe option you’ll never tire of for years to come.


STYLE TIP: While everything is tucked away in the wall-mounted bathroom cabinet above the sink, its mirror front makes the room look visually bigger. It also gives the washbasin cabinet a sleek contemporary update.

4. A Bathroom Wall Cabinet that Blends into the Rest of the Décor

Despite primarily being a functional space for storage and utility, a well-planned bathroom design, including the cabinet, can enhance the overall style of the room. Or, even blend in with the rest of the interiors. If you’ve chosen rich materials for the bathroom’s décor and don’t want to take away from its opulence, the bathroom cabinets can be designed to be tucked away and concealed within the wall’s panels.


EXPERT EYE: In this all-marble opulent bathroom, the wall mounted bathroom cabinets are built with the same material used across the rest of the room. This not only extends the aesthetic of the design but also makes the space look uniform and neat.

6. Build a Corner Bathroom Cabinet in a Nook or Niche

The main function of a bathroom cabinet is providing ample storage for all your belongings and utilities. For this, you have to find the right spot that provides enough space to fit in the bathroom cabinet storage. However, you don’t need a sprawling room to accommodate this. Instead, look for a single area of unused space. In this small bathroom design, a niche to the side of the shower area serves as the perfect spot for a corner bathroom cabinet.


STYLE TIP: Make the most of every inch of space when planning for bathroom cabinet design ideas. A bathroom vanity design can be improved by installing a bathroom mirror cabinet above the sink's countertop, which provides storage and vanity storage solutions in addition to the option of having a bathroom cupboard or drawers installed underneath the countertop. You could also use glass bathroom cabinets to make a room look more open or a stainless steel bathroom cabinet with mirror fronts as a more long-lasting option.

7. Get Creative when Designing the Bathroom Cabinet Storage

Whether you choose a bathroom mirror cabinet, glass bathroom cabinets, wall mounted bathroom cabinets or, even, a plastic bathroom cabinet with a mirror—there are several ways you can make it work to your advantage. The most important aspect to consider for bathroom cabinet storage is the way you’ll be using it and how it will fit within what already exists in the room. You could even have cabinets that aren’t built-in which can, instead, be moved around the room when required.


INSIDER’S EYE: A corner in this utilitarian bathroom has a utility spot where a set of drawers standing at the same height as the washing machine hold up a wooden slab that serves as a countertop. This is the best example of a DIY design that pairs form and functionality. It’s also very easy to replicate with things you’d find around the house.

8. Play Up a Bathroom Cabinet Design with Unique Detailing

When we think of any form of cabinetry, we always visualise wooden doors, drawers and panelling. However, if you’re looking for something unique to recreate the latest bathroom cabinet design ideas in your home, think of using unusual materials for the front of your bathroom cabinets. While materials such as cane (seen in this bathroom) will bring in an ethnic, rustic charm; metals such as brass or copper will add a glamorous spin to these storage spaces. You could either go all out by covering the entire cabinet shutter with it or add minimal detailing along the edges or the centre of the frame.


STYLE TIP: If you’re choosing a unique material for a bathroom wall cabinet, make sure the rest of the décor in the room follows a similar style or colour palette to complement it.

9. Use your Home’s Surroundings to Inspire the Bathroom Cabinet Design

Your home’s surroundings can be echoed in the décor in each room, especially if you live around an abundance of nature. For example, if you’re close to the mountains or hills, raw wood for the bathroom cabinets can replicate the charm of the forests within the room. Similarly, if your home is next to the ocean, a lake or river, shades of azure can be incorporated in the bathroom cabinet design.

10. Pair a Unique Colour or Wallpaper with a Bathroom Shelf with Mirror

If you’re trying to find the right hue for any room in the house, first order a colour catalogue from Asian Paints to physically view a range of shade cards around the light in a space. Sometimes, you could pick a unique shade or material for the cabinet design, but not find a similarly striking or complementing colour for the walls. If a shade of paint doesn’t do the trick, consider creating a panel on a wall with wallpaper. For a different aesthetic, you can play around with textures, prints and patterns with a range of Nilaya wall coverings by Asian Paints—our go-to most-trusted brand. You could even bring in a designer twist with wallpapers by fashion designer Sabyasachi or home décor label Good Earth, or choose the Wallpaper of the year, Lotus and Stilts.
