Bathroom storage seems to be a problem for everyone. Whether you have limited bathroom cabinetry or spacious wall cabinets, it never seems like you can find a place for everything — or find what you’re looking for! Not to mention the fact that bathroom cabinet storage solutions can also be rather unsightly. Here, we’ll give you a few creative and pretty storage ideas that will work for all size bathrooms, and put your storage problems to rest.
Don’t be afraid of open bathroom storage.
Having toiletries, beauty products or towels in sight might sound like clutter, but if done right, it can actually enhance the look of the room. Put together some pretty open storage solutions such as:
- Baskets: Keeping washcloths and towels in baskets is a brilliant way to create some extra storage while also adding a touch of décor to your bathroom. You’ll find every kind, from wire baskets to wicker baskets, and should have no problem locating options that complement your bathroom’s theme.
- Countertop holders: The countertops of vanities are often underused as a storage solution. Utilize this space to its full potential by investing in holders for cotton balls, cotton swabs, toothbrushes, and so on. There are numerous pretty and inexpensive options that will enhance your bathroom’s design and increase your storage.
- Open shelves: There are many vanities that have open shelves incorporated into their design, or you can simply add open shelving to a wall. Open shelves are a great place to store the baskets we just suggested, but you can use them however you like!
Not everything needs to be hidden behind a bathroom cabinet door. Leave some items out, as long as there is proper place.
Recessed shelves offer a chic storage solution.
Whether you want to keep things clean in a modern theme, or have a small bathroom that is in dire need of more space, recessed wall cabinets may be the solution. Recessed shelving utilizes the space behind walls (such as in between beams) to create more storage space.
While recessed wall cabinets are really useful for tiny bathrooms that lack enough storage, it is also an ideal option for contemporary bathrooms that focus on a minimalistic design.
Lacking storage options where you need them? Add some on!
We often think we are limited to the traditional storage options, or the fancy ideas we see in magazines and online. In reality, there are so many ways to make your bathroom functional if you’re willing to do some unconventional maneuvers.
With small vanities, for example, countertop space is often scarce. You can attach a toothbrush or cotton ball holder to the wall, rather than clutter your sink area.
If you don’t have any practical place to put your hairdryer or curling iron, why not hang a basket to the side of your bathroom vanity and keep your hair items there?
Just because a storage solution is unusual, doesn’t mean it’s not allowed — or can’t be pretty! Find a way to balance the visual and functional elements, and anything is fair game.
Floating shelves can fix a lot of storage fails.
Do you find yourself missing a shelf right where we you need one most? Consider installing a floating shelf.
Why not put a pretty floating shelf next to your bathtub? Now you can keep bubble bath and candles within arm’s reach.
What about on the side of your toilet? Now you can store that backup roll somewhere other than on top of your tank.
Storage can seem complicated, but sometimes the solutions are easier than you think. Hopefully some of these creative and pretty ideas have inspired you to solve the storage issues in your bathroom.
