The bathroom cabinet is placed in the bathroom, and inevitably needs to store items such as towels and tissue. If the bathroom cabinet cannot prevent moisture, then these items cannot be stored. In this way, the bathroom cabinet loses its function. Bathroom cabinets are generally made with moisture prevention in mind, but it is not enough. Attention to detail during installation is necessary to achieve comprehensive moisture prevention.
Tip 1: Waterproof materials
Wooden bathroom cabinets are prone to water absorption and deformation, so they have very strict requirements for the surrounding environment. When choosing a bathroom cabinet, composite panel materials such as fireproof board, wear-resistant board, and high molecular polymer can be used for the cabinet surface. They have good moisture resistance and can mimic the color of real wood.
Tip 2: Metal support legs
Wooden cabinet legs are prone to moisture absorption, leading to cabinet deformation. Using metal legs as support at the bottom of the cabinet cleverly solves this problem. Furthermore, aluminum legs are strong and corrosion-resistant, ensuring no rusting when in contact with water.
Tip 3: Hardware connections
Hardware connections, such as slides and hinges, play an important role in the opening and closing of the bathroom cabinet. Ordinary hardware is susceptible to corrosion and rust, which can affect the cabinet's lifespan.
Tip 4: Rubber edge sealing
Rubber strips with impact resistance can be installed where the cabinet contacts the door, effectively preventing moisture intrusion and reducing noise when closing the door.
Tip 5: Bottom drain board
Installing a waterproof bottom drain at the bottom of the sink prevents the cabinet bottom from getting damp and deforming.
Tip 6: Recessed design
In-wall mirror cabinets can prevent direct contact with the ground, effectively utilizing upper bathroom space and blocking moisture.
Tip 7: New box design
Only special board materials that are both moisture-proof and breathable can be used as the box material for bathroom cabinets.
Tip 8: Waterproof aluminum foil
Adding a layer of waterproof aluminum foil or rubber mat at the bottom of the cabinet can prevent moisture from sink condensation and fix bath products while preventing moisture.
By implementing these eight points, along with a reliable quality bathroom cabinet, your bathroom cabinet will be a perfect piece of furniture that is impervious to water!
