Bathrooms continue to be the second most popular room to renovate, with kitchens taking the number one spot. Being the smallest room in the house, homeowners are always looking for new ways to increase storage and space.
But increasing bathroom storage doesn’t need to include a complete remodel. There are many unique ways to add more storage without construction, thus saving you time and money.
Take a look at these five ideas to give your bathroom more space and style.
1. Over-the-Toilet Shelving or Cabinet
The space above your toilet is excellent for small bathroom storage. You can install a shelving unit or cabinet. Even individual shelves work great too. You can choose whichever you like based on your style and the exact space available.
You can also install a unit or shelves over the sink if you have room between the sink and the mirror. Instead of using a flat mirror, consider using a mirror unit that includes additional storage, like a medicine cabinet.
2. Bathroom Wall Storage
Consider using wall mounts to store commonly used items in view. This creates more space to move around and allows easy access to everyday items.
For example, you can use a wall-mounted towel rack to store extra towels. You can also use wall soap dispensers to save space on the countertop.
You might consider a toilet paper rack on the wall as well. Keep the top items you use the most in view for easy access and replacement.
3. Tall and Narrow Storage
Whether you want shelves or a cabinet, something tall and narrow will fit perfectly in the bathroom.
In fact, you can find a bathroom storage tower that is right for the space you have. Designs made for the bathroom work because they factor in the odd spatial arrangements bathrooms have.
Maximizing the space from the floor to the ceiling is key. Keep the items you use the most in the middle.
4. Use the Back of the Door
This is one of the best bathroom storage ideas people often forget about. You can install rows of shelves and racks on the back of the door. They can hold toiletries and other small items.
When using the back of the door, avoid any shelves that add too much depth. If they are too big, you won’t be able to open the door properly and lose space.
5. Bathroom Storage Bench
Storage benches are a great idea for your bathroom to create a small sitting area. This is especially true if you want to sit and do your makeup at a vanity desk.
You can utilize all the space by using a storage bench rather than a chair. This way, you give yourself a place to relax while keeping items stored away.
