Have you ever felt that your current bathroom design limits the amount of storage space? Does it seem you could always use more? Do you feel that there should be a better way to store your bathroom items and toiletries without cluttering your countertops? If so, there are numerous storage solutions and ways to save space. When determining how you want your bathroom remodeling project handled, first consider a few of these space saving and storage ideas, some of which you could even do yourself.
First, consider an over-the-toilet space saver. This will give you extra cabinet space and extra storage shelves. For this type of shelving and cabinetry, you really don't need an extensive amount of space on either side of the toilet. You only need about 3/4 of an inch on both sides and an open space over the back of the toilet tank.
You can even add storage to doors, walls, and even ceilings. By using hooks, racks, and towel bars on your bathroom door and walls, you can essentially create more space and store towels, washcloths, and other items much more effectively. You can also have storage shelves installed onto your bathroom walls. Take advantage of your wall space by installing as many shelves that you see fit. Wall shelves are also great for storing towels, washcloths, and toiletries. If you enjoy displaying knick-knacks in your bathroom, do not hesitate to create a border of shelves in that empty space around the bathroom ceiling. This will help to contribute more space to your other potential storage areas.
Label your containers, bins, and totes. If each person who uses the bathroom has their own personal tote for bathroom basics, you may want to consider labeling each one and what items it may contain. This will cut down on overbuying which could cause new storage dilemmas.
If you are still strapped for space, consider expanding your space with a bathroom medicine cabinet. The medicine cabinet can store a vast amount of small items such as your toothbrush and toothbrush holder, cosmetics, shampoos, and hair gels. Medicine cabinets with recessed surfaces will also save space in your bathroom. If you have it installed in this fashion (recessed into the wall), you will have what appears to be a hanging mirror but what is actually a secret storage space.
By following these few steps and consulting with your bathroom contractor on additional tips and ideas; you should have no trouble saving space and creating greater storage areas when your bathroom remodeling project is complete.
