How To Decorate Using Oak Bathroom Furniture
- First of all, when shouldn’t you use oak bathroom furniture? Unfortunately there are some instances where oak won’t do much to compliment the bathroom design.Look at the brightness of your bathroom. Does it have enough natural lighting or do you have a smaller, darker bathroom that doesn’t get much light? Oak is a light wood, so it works better in a lighter bathroom design. Oak bathroom furniture in a darker space may run the risk of making your bathroom look cold and uninviting.
- When you’re ready to redecorate your bathroom, start with your vanity; it’s what everyone notices first when they walk inside. Bathroom vanities can be defined as – the bathroom sink and the storage area that surrounds it.
- Your sink: if you have a large bathroom, the wife would appreciate an area to do her makeup while still being close to the sink. Consider getting a wall mounted mirror with a small oak make up table and an oak vanity chair. She’ll appreciate the thought behind the design. Oh, and check out the oak vessel vanities – they’re extremely elegant!
- Choosing your cabinets: you won’t have a problem if you’re buying from the same furniture line and manufacturer, but if not; you’ll have to make sure that everything blends well together. We suggest you choose a good quality oak veneer with your cabinet for a natural finish.If you want to add some more drama to your bathroom, tall slim storage linen cabinets will do the job quite nicely by breaking up a room that’s normally eye level all around.
