The bathroom is one of those rooms where most of us wish we had more space. If you have a small bathroom, there are certain tricks that can make it look and feel bigger than it is, like selecting the right lighting and some well-positioned mirrors. Then there’s storage. You might struggle to find enough storage space in a small bathroom, and some storage solutions can really eat into the space available to you.
Whether your bathroom is big or small, here are some of the best storage tips to help you make the most of the space you have.
The medicine cabinet behind the bathroom mirror is perhaps one of the most common bathroom storage solutions. Although this doesn’t provide a huge amount of space, you can use it to store your toothbrush, toothpaste, some hair products, toiletries and, of course, medicine. It doesn’t impact the footprint or available space in your bathroom too much because you would already have a mirror there, this way it’s just sticking out from the wall by a few extra inches.
There are lots of different and creative ways you can utilize your wall space for storage. Shelves, baskets, hooks, rails, and more. If you have a small bathroom, then you probably can’t install a large unit of shelves on your wall, but hooks for towels or small baskets for toiletries can add additional storage space. A small corner shelving unit is a good space-efficient storage solution, or a single shelf above your sink.
Recessed cabinets or alcoves
One way to add storage without encroaching on your bathroom space is to build it into the wall. You can cut out a small alcove that’s recessed into the wall and add shelves into it. You can either have this open or hide it behind a door.
Bathroom vanity cabinets
If you have enough space for a bathroom vanity, then cabinets built into this can provide a great deal of storage space. This is a great place to store towels, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and more. With a bathroom vanity, you can store most of what you need so that you don’t have to take up much space in the rest of the room for storage.
If you need a vanity for your bathroom, then a natural stone countertop is the perfect way to top it off.
