Bathroom storage on a budget but clever way? Today I will teach you how to maximize space in your bathroom, which is a common dilemma.
Not everyone has a huge bathroom that is easy to turn into something luxurious and stunning. If you are limited when it comes to bathroom space, it might be a good idea to make a plan to utilize the existing storage and create more space to make your bathroom look more organized and feel more luxurious and practical at the same time. Below you will find a few tips on how to make the most out of a small bathroom.
BATHROOM STORAGE IDEAS
A good bathroom storage plan is essential if you want to make your bathroom look bigger and has to ideally contain the following elements:
- bathroom storage cabinet
- smart bathroom shelving
- bathroom radiator rails
- bathroom mirror with backlights
- shower storage
- airing bathroom cupboard
- under bathroom sink organizers
- over the door storage
- window sill storage
BATHROOM STORAGE CABINET
A good bathroom storage cabinet can really help you save space but also keep your bath tidy. My advice is to cleverly use an over the toilet cabinet, to utilize that space too. In this way, you can arrange the toilet paper and other toiletries without exposing them.
BATHROOM STORAGE SMART SHELVING
Do you own quite a lot of toiletries that do not fit only in the over the toilet cabinet? If you have a couple of corners and alcoves in your bathroom, it might be time to think about storage and shelving that fits. You might not find the right size, but you will be able to get made to measure shelves that will help you make the most out of your space and look great, matching the style of your bathroom suite and your white fixtures.
You might go to your local DIY store to get it measured and cut or talk to a professional to design and fit your new shelving units.
BATHROOM RADIATOR RAILS
If your radiators are taking over most of the wall space, you might want to change the location of your heaters and install central heating or electric heated rails that will serve as a towel storage. Most importantly, it will heat your bathroom at the right place; preferably next to your bath or shower.
This will be much slimmer than your usual radiator and more practical at the same time. So you can make the most out of your space and wall surface, while getting your towels warm and nice.
BATHROOM MIRROR WITH BACKLIGHT
Adding a mirror is essential to a bath, but it can also help save space if it has a backlight included. First of all, it is crucial that you choose the location of your mirror carefully. It has to be practical, but – at the same time – you will also have to ensure that you are using the optical illusion of reflection to your advantage. You can find some bathroom mirrors with a backlight that will serve two different purposes, and the smaller the frame is, the better results you will achieve when it comes to making your bathroom look larger.
You can also buy some mirror tiles for your ceiling or walls that will help you spread natural light and create a visual impression of a larger bathroom.
You should start with your shower rail and find a creative way of hanging all your toiletries and things you use every day on a hook shelf. At the same time, you can use your wall space to install small hooks that will hold your sponges and your shower gel, making your bathroom look more practical and organized. If you have a separate shower cubicle, this will give you an opportunity to get a corner shelf and keep your space looking tidy.
AIRING BATHROOM CUPBOARDS
If you have the habit of hanging clothing around the house to dry, I advise you to place an airing cupboard in your bathroom. Use plastic hangers and a rail to keep clothes tidy while they dry.
I have seen some people using airing cupboards in the bathroom to store towels and makeup but I do not agree with that because towels soak up moisture and the warmth of a bath can destroy certain ingredients in products.
BATHROOM SINK ORGANIZERS
If you want to make your bathroom look bigger, you will need to make sure that you are utilizing the space you would have no use of otherwise. Choose your under sink furniture in a way that it gives you both drawer space and shelves, and looks like it was designed with your bath and sink in mind. You can go for the color that is similar to your tiles or your bath. You will find plenty of modern and easy to install designs for small space at Bathshop321 and choose the style you would like to create in your bathroom.
OVER THE DOOR STORAGE
If you are struggling with space and don’t have anywhere to put your current towels and other accessories, you can turn to an old trick of people living in tiny apartments and get some over door shelves or cabinets installed. While you will have to check the structural stability and strength of your wall. It is likely that you will be able to keep lighter items over the door where they don’t take up your floor space.
BATHROOM WINDOW SILL STORAGE
In case you are seriously short of space, you will need to make the most out of the horizontal surfaces you have. If you have ledges, you can install some smart shelves that will withstand moisture and condensation, but still look elegant and sophisticated.
Your window sill is another potential shelf, if you are able to organize your toiletries in a way that they look tidy instead of creating a chaotic display for your guests.
There are many people who are unhappy with the practical features and space of their bathroom. If you would like to make the most out of what you have, simply follow my advice above.
