Storage Solutions for Small Bathrooms
Updated: Nov 13, 2018
Is your bathroom small? It’s the worst, isn’t it? Well, unfortunately, small bathrooms are very common, and are usually the smallest rooms in the house. I can almost bet that it almost always feels cramped and tight in there. Although the square footage doesn’t change, a change of organization and storage space can make a drastic change to how your bathroom feels. Here are a few tips and tricks to make your bathroom space feel more functional and spacious.
Medicine Cabinet If you have a regular mirror, replacing it with one that includes a medicine cabinet which will provide more storage space.
Shelving If you have free space above your toilet, vanity, or another empty part of the wall, install shelving units. Purchase a few decorative baskets to maximize shelf space too.
Hooks With a few decorative hooks, in a style of your preference, you can declutter by placing a couple on the back of the door to hang towels or robes. Perhaps one or two right next to each end of the shelving unit you just installed.
Towel Racks A rack installed inside of your shower can save you space and convenience, also adding an additional shower bar above the original will work nicely. Another idea is installing a few racks a couple of feet above each other or right next on another. If you have an excessive amount of towels, store some of them away in the bedroom closet or even a big basket.
Vanity with Cabinet I have come across plenty of pedestal sinks in small bathrooms, but if you want to save some space, add some storage, and upgrade the look of your bathroom at the same time, a vanity cabinet will definitely do the trick.
