What material is the best for a bathroom cabinet?
Since the bathroom is exposed to a lot of moisture, the best materials for bathroom cabinets are those that are resistant to humidity and moisture. Waterproof plywood is one of the best materials to create the base of the cabinets since it can also withstand the heavy weight of marble countertops. PVC cabinets are another practical option but you should avoid medium-density fiber and solid wood when it comes to bathroom cabinets.
Can you use the kitchen cabinets in the bathroom?
Yes, you can use kitchen cabinets in the bathroom but repurposing them can be tough work. You would need to remove drawers from one or two parts of the cabinet if you opt for under-the-cabinet sinks. You would also need to seal the wood to ensure it doesn’t get damaged due to the moisture in the bathroom. Bathrooms are more compact than kitchens and so are the cabinets. That gives rise to the issue of your repurposed kitchen cabinet blocking the bathroom doorway.
So these were some of the most practical and attractive options to choose from when repurposing your bathroom cabinet or adding more storage space.
