Tall Linen Cabinets For Bathroom

Got high ceilings—and want to take advantage of them with tall bathroom cabinets? Great idea! Interior designers have been advising us to take advantage of our vertical storage for decades. Not only does this design choice usually look great; doing so allows us to free up floor space so our homes look bigger. It’s a definite win—and all it requires is finding the right bathroom pantry cabinet for our homes.

Whether you’re looking for a floating cabinet, a ‘50s cabinet, or one that blends in seamlessly with your decor, we’ve got your back with these ten excellent ideas.

The tall linen cabinet with an update on a neutral

Traditionally, neutral colors have been those that are very, very simple: Taupe, white, black, grey, navy. We’re here to say that you can still achieve a minimal, neutral look with a slightly stronger color.

For example, consider purchasing a linen cabinet in a deep forest green—or a toned golden yellow. These colors can add a bold interest to your space with very little effort (and really make your linens pop!).

Want to add texture to your space without going overboard?

Use vertical panels to help lift your eye upward, but don’t put them all over your small room (that might be overwhelming). Instead, select a cabinet with these uplifting panels, and enjoy the effect with a smaller footprint (and price point!).

Traditionally, bathrooms are kept light, open, and airy. Go a different way with dark colors and golden hardware, and you’ll enjoy a sense of dramatic coziness that will make your morning toiletries feel downright decadent.

We like gold or bronze hardware with a dark navy for a color scheme that will match many others, but the same effect can be achieved with gold hardware and gold, maroon, green, or black paint.

Want to recreate a Rococo feel in your home?

An intricately-carved cupboard in an aged pastel—light blue, light yellow, rose—with scrolls and florals decorating the top will feel like it’s come straight from a French villa. Pair this type of cabinet with more pastels and light, upscale decor for a delicately lovely bathroom.

If you’re not seeking maximalist vibes, then select a linen closet with less texture. A flat-paneled piece in a neutral color may blend in so effortlessly that it feels like a built-in, which definitely seems high-class and luxurious.

We like placing our linen cabinets on legs, however—this can help make your space seem airier instead of seemingly reducing your square footage. Every inch counts!

Not looking to reduce visual clutter? Interested in adding artistic decor to your small spaces?

Select a storage cabinet with grills, latticing, or even glass doors on part of the cabinet. There you can store pretty perfume bottles, aesthetic lotions, or other toiletries that you know will make the space seem more special. 

A linen cabinet with open shelving

Maybe you don’t want to fuss with doors. Perhaps you’re more interested in the easy utility of open shelving.

Select a cabinet that has both as options: drawers or cabinets on the bottom, and a few free shelves on top. We like at least some closed storage for the more utilitarian items you may need to house in your bathroom, but open shelving up top is always a beautiful idea. 

A light, breezy, vented bathroom pantry cabinet

For a cabinet so laid-back and beach-reminiscent that you might feel like you’re brushing your teeth outside, look for a light or neutral wooden cabinet with vents on the doors.

Not only does this help air out your linens, it adds just enough repeating visual interest without overwhelming your eyes. It’s a win-win! 

A tall linen cabinet with multifaceted storage

A tall linen cabinet with multifaceted storage

Drawers and cabinets and open shelving, oh my! Whether you want a small countertop workspace or you like the slightly more complicated look of different types of shelving, a cabinet that has many types of options can be really versatile.

This type of shelving is particularly great for families. Each family member gets their own type of cubby for their daily go-tos, which can reduce a lot of friction (especially if you live in a smaller space). 

A tall linen closet with offset door storage

If you really don’t need additional cupboards and doors in your bathroom and, perhaps, wished that you had an actual built-in closet instead, this is the next best thing. This cabinet has one large, regular door-sized door that you can open like a full-sized closet.

In other words: Ever wanted to simply add a closet into your home? If you have the space, this is how you do it! 

Our advice Buying Guide

Tall cabinets provide needed storage in tiny spaces. Bathrooms are notorious for having limited options for towels and personal items. With the onset of baths becoming a design statement, tall linen cabinets for bathroom storage are right on time to offer function and stylish updates.

Versatility and function at an inexpensive price can be the answer to your bathroom space problems without compromising great style with freestanding linen cabinets.

What are the qualities of different linen cabinet materials?

  • Solid Wood/Veneers - Wood provides stability for longevity and holding finishes. Veneers add needed cosmetics to open areas
  • MDF - Medium-density fiberboard is less resistant to humidity than wood but also less expensive.
  • Plastic - Resin will not peel, rust or dent. Streamlined for modern decors.
  • Tempered Glass - For cabinet fronts and interior shelves, glass adds a modern look.
  • Metal Hardware - A variety of sturdy metal fittings, like stainless steel, brass and wrought iron keep hinges working well.
  • Finishes - Stains and varnishes for wood protect wood from warping. Oil-based paint in popular colors provides a clean sheen.

How to measure for tall linen cabinets?

Open spaces in bathrooms have prompted manufacturers to add many different sizes. Everything from tower cabinets to skinny and sleek pieces can take up little room against a wall or tucked into a corner. For instance, a tiny bathroom with only a space between the vanity and toilet can benefit from a cabinet that uses only 13" of wall space. Different heights are available to correspond to the height of a vanity mirror or cabinet for an aesthetic appearance. Corner units and above the toilet models also come in a variety of sizes for tight spots. Keep the surrounding perimeters in mind for proportion. For example, if you have tall ceilings, a tower linen cabinet can add a pleasing accent to a wall. However, if your bathroom is small and already crowded with the basic fixtures, consider a slim corner unit that does not exceed 60" in height.

How to match a linen cabinet with bathroom style?

Modern bathrooms with mosaics and glass will accept a full front glass model with sweeping metal highlights engrained in the glass. On the other hand, a country style will feel the warmth of salt oak with louvered doors. Rich cherry wood enriches a traditional bath when a faux granite shelf separates bottom storage and top open shelving. There are no limits to the finishes, colors or front panels and designs available to accent your room in a particular style. A simple light gray or white tall cabinet will work well if you are unsure as to which model to choose.

How to maintain bathroom linen cabinets?

Tall linen cabinets for bathroom spaces are made to endure the moisture of the enclosed area. Cleaning is simple by using only a damp cloth. Use glass cleaner on any glass surface. MDF is not as resilient to steam as wood or plastic. Keep this material as dry as possible to avoid moisture damage.
