Bathroom cabinets are sold by kitchen cabinet retailers, building supply stores, home improvement centres and a couple more. While ready to assemble ones are the cheapest ones, decide on the quality, size, design and decorative elements of the cabinet before purchasing it. Check the drawers of the cabinets. They must move in and out smoothly without any crackling noise. Also they must not sag or come out fully when pulled out completely. Not but the least check the material used to build the cabinet. Also see if the piece has a good finish and outlook, after all it is going to add good looks to your bathroom and you are paying for it. Check the doors, accessories used, the hinges and other hardware used to make it. Bathroom linen cabinets are one of the best options that offer your bathrooms and clean and tidy look.

Place two C clamps in the first cabinet, lift the second cabinet into place and using the C clamps, firmly clamp the front face stile of the first cabinet to the second. The combination of the wall furring strip and the two clamps will allow you to let go and do the work of affixing the second cabinet to the wall and to each other. Making sure that the front faces are perfectly flush with each other and the heights are perfectly matched, standard practice is to pre-drill a screw hole behind the door hinge. Using drywall screws again, insert a screw in the hole making sure the screw will not penetrate through the stile of the other cabinet (too long). Place one screw behind each hinge. Now fasten the second cabinet to the wall and then release the clamps. This same scenario repeats itself until you reach the end of the cabinets. You may have spaces where a window occurs but your furring strip will assure that both sections are mounted at the same height.
Secondly selection of the cabinets depends upon what you wish to store. If you do not intend to store too much of linen, opt for the towel racks style which can be rotated. Whatever the style be the materials used to make these cabinets are durable and can withstand the rough conditions of any bathroom. You get to choose from a wide option of metal, steel, glass and wood for a touch of modernism, but just be assured that they are rust free. The doors of the cabinet are one of the most important aspects to consider when buying a cabinet for your bathroom. Free standing ones have an option of opaque wood and glass doors. While the glass doors suit accessories like perfumes, lotions, creams and other antique items used in the bath, things like bath towels, linens, kids toys and wash clothes look better stored in cabinets with wooden doors.
Semi-custom cabinetry is also mass produced by the manufacturer. You do have a bit more flexibility here. You can be specific about the size of the cabinets and choose different finishes, moldings and trim. These cabinets will be installed by the dealer. Custom cabinets are specifically designed, manufactured and installed for you. While you have a larger variety to choose from, the term custom used here is really semi-custom. A true custom cabinet is possible by hiring a skilled cabinet maker. You will have infinite variety at considerable expense.
