Renovating bathrooms perhaps require greater attention than those in other parts of the house because of the increased moisture levels such spaces are faced with on a routine basis.
As such, it is important to get bathroom furniture purchases right and Pat Logan of the National Ledger has recommended homeowners invest in glass shelves for this particular room as they will perform well in damp conditions.
The writer advised against particleboard or oriented strand board as they will not hold up particularly well, while glass is also relatively easy to keep clean and would not require painting, as wood might.
“Don’t just immediately start drilling holes all over the wall,” the correspondent remarked. “Take some time to consider what you will store on each shelf.”
In contrast, interior designer Rose Bennett Gilbert recently suggested using wood as a feature in bathroom suites, explaining in a Sioux City Journal article that new finishes can render the material almost impervious to water damage.
