How to Prolong the Life of Bathroom Cabinets

Whether you’re building a new house, remodeling, or just refinishing them, bathroom cabinets are a major investment, and it’s important to take care of them to extend their lifespan. Your bathroom cabinets go through a lot of wear and tear – constant slamming, prolong exposure to steam/water, and casual deterioration from excessive use. Here are a few tips on how to prolong the life of your bathroom cabinets:

  1. Choose the right materials. When choosing bathroom cabinets, it’s important to consider the materials they are made of. Wood cabinets are a popular choice, but they can be susceptible to moisture damage. If your bathroom is prone to moisture, consider choosing cabinets made of a more durable material, such as laminate or MDF. This will provide extra defense against the many elements your cabinets will face.
  2. Install the cabinets properly. It’s important to have your bathroom cabinets installed properly by a professional. Improper DIY installation can lead to problems down the road, such as loose joints and warped wood.

  3. Use gentle cleaners. When cleaning your bathroom cabinets, use a mild soap and water solution. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as these can damage the finish.
  4. Avoid slamming the cabinets. Slamming the cabinets can damage the hinges and the finish. Gently close the cabinets to avoid any damage.
  5. Ventilate the bathroom. Bathrooms can get steamy, which can damage the cabinets. Make sure to ventilate the bathroom after showering or bathing to prevent moisture buildup.
  6. Protect the cabinets from water damage. If your bathroom is prone to flooding, consider installing a water barrier behind the cabinets. This will help to protect the cabinets from water damage.
  7. Refinish the cabinets every 5-10 years. As the finish on your bathroom cabinets wears, it’s important to refinish them every 5-10 years. This will help to protect the cabinets and keep them looking their best.
