Bathrooms are incomplete without shelves. Once you install them, it’s impossible to think of a life without them. Shelves or cabinets, available in various sizes, shapes and color, help in optimum utilization of bathroom floor space. Some of the advantages offered by bathroom shelves to home owners are:
- Organizing necessary things into the shelf, make the bathroom look less crowded or in other words more spacious.
- It increases the accessibility and reduces the wastage of time in finding things when they are not well organized.
- Shelves facilitate easy regular cleaning
- Easy installation, variety of material with which they are made and affordable pricing has made shelves an attractive must have item for the bathrooms
Bathroom shelves are available as racks, corner shelves, and mounting containers. Two most common types of shelves used are wooden shelves and glass shelves, and most people are confused between which one would be the best buy. A wooden shelf isn’t always made up of real wood, instead is made of cheaper woods or given a wooden finish through paints. These do last longer, but are expensive than glass shelves.
Glass shelves may be cheaper, but are also vulnerable to shattering and cracking if the strength of the shelf is not good. However, since both of them are available in beautiful designs, choosing which one is better than the other is always difficult. Always make a choice depending upon the things you wish to keep on the shelf and the people who will have access to it. Homes where children have access to the shelves, glass shelves are never advisable.
