Minimise clutter, conceal pipework and elevate a humdrum bathroom or en suite into a streamlined hotel-like sanctuary with modular bathroom furniture. Choose co-ordinating modular pieces such as vanity, cupboard and drawer units, and combine each of them to suit your room’s layout and storage needs. Wall-hung and floor-standing designs come in a huge choice of sizes, making it easy to enhance even the trickiest of spaces, such as below the sink or an awkward corner.


What is modular bathroom furniture?

Modular bathroom furniture refers to separate pieces that can be combined to form a complete bathroom setup. 'There’s no one size fits all solution, so work with a qualified installer before committing to anything,' says Jonathan Phillips, Bathrooms Product Manager at MKM.

Bathroom modular furniture ideas

Symphony Valencia Platinum shaker style bathroom

Shaker-style cupboards aren’t just for kitchens – they look just as good in the bathroom, and give it the feel of a rustic retreat. Up the ante by teaming them with marble or wood-effect worktops, and add interest with two-tone tiled splashbacks. Valencia bathroom in Matt Platinum, from £1,351, Symphony

Novara Matt Indigo modular bathroom

Fill an alcove with a mix of base and wall cabinets, including a toilet, basin and vanity units, for a flush finish that doesn’t encroach on the rest of the room. Novara bathroom in Matt Indigo, from £1,192, Symphony

Orchard Lea Ocean Blue floor-standing vanity unit with ceramic basin, £269, Victoria Plum

Keep clutter at bay while having your lotions and potions close to hand with generous storage in a sleek washbasin stand. Trent Stone Grey combination vanity basin and Denver toilet, £469.99, Bathroom Mountain
