Five Ways to Get More Storage in Your Bathroom
Bathrooms are a highly trafficked space in every home.
Not only are they essential, but they are often the permanent storage spot for lots of life's essentials - from soap to shampoo to shaving cream.
So how do you get the most return from what is often a very small space?
Here are some ideas:
1. Borrow Space - look at the walls in your bathroom and see if the space allows for some really narrow shelves or something like a magazine rack that could hold reading materials or towels. When you're looking for ideas - look at options for other rooms in the house - like kitchens or offices - and see if you can't repurpose the item for your own storage solution.
2.Think Portable. Bins with handles make for easy mobility so you can bring what you need into the bathroom and then put it back into another space. This is great for when guests visit or when you group things like mani-pedi items or makeup items together.
3. Don't forget the doors - add hooks on the back side or add an "over the door" towel or hanging device to increase your capacity.
4. Pull Out Drawers can sometimes be added to underneath an existing vanity cabinet, which really increase storage options. If you're thinking of a bathroom renovation, a vanity with doors and drawers is a much better choice long term than a pedestal sink if you need places to store things.
5. Think Tiered storage options - like a cupcake stand - that could hold lots of toiletries that can be easily accessible.
