Bathroom Vanity Cabinets – Should You Assemble Your Own?

Your bathroom vanity cabinets may not seem like an important piece to your overall bathroom design concept but they definitely are. Your bathroom cabinets are where you keep the majority of your personal items in your bathroom. You want to make sure that your cabinets are sufficient enough in space and also look good enough and fit into your overall cabinet and bathroom remodeling.

With the advent of networks such as the DIY network and HGTV, more and more homeowners are choosing to renovate their bathrooms themselves. This holds true for projects such as bathroom tiling, bathroom painting and even for things such as assembling your own bathroom cabinets.

If you are going to assemble your own bathroom vanity cabinets, it is essential that you first know what type of bathroom cabinets you are going to need. You will first need to take accurate measurements of the area where the cabinets are going to go. The old saying says that you should measure twice just to be one hundred percent sure that you are getting an accurate measurement. This especially holds true for corner cabinets which can be a bit more tricky than cabinets that are going to be placed on a straight wall surface.

Next you want to pick out what type of bathroom cabinets you are going to want and far as what type of wood and what type of color. The color of your bathroom may have some sort of effect on this decision. If your bathroom is colored in a lighter color, than you may want to go with a lighter shade of wood. A great type of lighter colored wood is an oak wood which is very traditional. If your bathroom color is a darker color and maybe even a neutral color, mahogany wood would work well in this type of environment. Whatever you decide, make sure that it work well with the elements which are already present in your bathroom.

Finally, if you are going to DIY the cabinets and bathroom makeovers, you want to make sure that you have all the tools that you need which in some cases will include an instructional class or two on how to remodel your bathroom. These types of classes can be very easy to find down at your local hardware store. If you can’t find a class such as this at your hardware store, try to catch a DIY bathroom remodeling show on television. This shouldn’t be too hard. Today, there seems as if there is a home improvement show on every half hour that can show you the ins and outs of DIY remodeling.

Well, hopefully these steps have gotten you a little closer to tackling that DIY bathroom cabinet project. Don’t be intimidated, most DIY projects can be easy once you get the hang of things. Now get out there and assemble your own bathroom vanity cabinets.
