Benefits of bamboo bathroom storage
Bathroom storage does not always have to be limited to the cabinet under the sink. Though the room is small, you can optimise the storage by adding slim bamboo storage options.
Here are some reasons why bamboo storage for the bathroom is a good idea.
Bamboo shelves are made of giant timber bamboos, plants that grow straight up with nodes between and hollow tubes. The bamboo plants are naturally water-resistant on the outside. They do not have barks or internal layers like plants do.
The natural properties of bamboo plants make them resistant to the presence of water and moisture near them.
Easy to move
The bamboo shelves and cabinets are easy to move around because most of them are lighter. Stability may be a concern in this case, so when selecting bamboo shelves, ensure that the base stand is firm and stable.
Yet, some bamboo cabinets made of laminated bamboo are heavy, stable and stronger than a wooden cabinet.
Strong and tough
As mentioned earlier, bamboo timbers are naturally durable. They are strong and tough.
The bathroom storage shelves and cabinets made from bamboo have these qualities. Besides, the laminated beams and furnishing provide the added strength that you can rely on.
Come in different sizes and lengths
Unlike the other rooms in the house, most bathrooms are small in comparison. So, when choosing a storage solution, it is better to find something that is strong, durable and can withstand moisture.
Bamboo bathroom furniture ticks all these boxes.
Looks great in small spaces
The colour of the natural bamboo timbers provides a startling contrast to the colour of the bathrooms. They make the space looks beautiful, calming and homey.
Last a long time
The bamboo bathroom shelves and cabinets will last a long time. Not only does it save you money, but you can also fold them and put them away if you do not need them anymore.
What’s more, you can give them a wipe and use them again or pass them on to families and friends.
