A Guide to Tavistock Fitted Furniture

Date Added: 08.04.2022

Bathroom furniture has come a long way from the days of dated medicine cabinets and rickety sink pedestals. Fitted furniture is a super-efficient way to ensure that all of your bathroom bits and bobs are tucked away neatly, rather than creating clutter.

By adhering to a layout similar to that seen in kitchens, fitted furniture is just as efficient and stylish. Fitted bathroom furniture is perfect for concealing unsightly pipework, whilst maximising storage, making it an ideal solution for small and large bathrooms, alike.

What is fitted furniture?

Put simply, fitted furniture is a configuration of separate units that fit together to create a fitted solution – similar to those seen in a kitchen. This furniture style is easiest to understand when you consider each section in blocks; so the washbasin and underneath unit is one block, cupboards another, toilet another – and so on. The blocks will all sit under a countertop, and be flush against the wall, creating a cohesive structure.

The main appeal of fitted furniture to many, is the fact that it is an entirely tailorable solution, meaning you can create a structure designed for your own space.

How much space do you need?

The first consideration for your fitted furniture should be assessing your bathroom space. Consider how much space you have – fitted furniture can make a bathroom feel ultra sleek and expensive when executed well, so ensure that you measure all those nooks and crannies for a tailored look. Another important consideration, is how much space do you need your fitted furniture to have? The likelihood is, if you’re looking to install the furniture in a family bathroom, you’ll need space for an assortment of shampoo bottles, toilet rolls and the odd rubber duck, or two. Your fitted furniture will probably need an array of shelf heights, cupboard depths and plenty of countertop space.

Modern or traditional?

Most bathroom furniture can generally be fit under two stylistic umbrellas – contemporary and classic. Both have their benefits and can look statement and chic, although it is best to stick to one style and consistently use it throughout the bathroom. Looking at your house as a whole, it’s a good idea to replicate your wider home’s style in your bathroom, for an extra cohesive look.(this can also increase resale value in the housing market).

Modern bathroom furniture tends to favour minimalist style. This means drawers without handles for a seamless appearance, streamlined curves or sleek, angular lines and up-to-date colour choices. For an ultra-modern look, opt for a wall-mounted solution, as the enhanced sense of space creates a contemporary look perfect for smaller spaces.

Traditional furniture usually features details associated with vintage style, such as shaker style panelling, statement handles and wood effect finishes. If your home already features traditional design elements, the style can be complimentary to your wider home style and enhance an already established look.
