Some bathrooms come with few storage options. If this sounds like your bathroom, you’re in luck. There are a few options out there to help maximize your storage without completely renovating the bathroom.
A good place to start would be shelving. Try hanging a wall-shelving unit to organize your toiletries or towels. Or if you’re really cramped for space, try an over-the-toilet storage option. They fit in a space that is already occupied by the toilet and can come in an open or closed style. Medicine cabinets are another way to hide personal items in the bathroom. Ditch the mirror and install a medicine cabinet that has a mirror on it. They are usually fairly easy to install.
If you’re looking for a more expensive option that is sure to add value to your home, put in a nice vanity. Installing one of these can be helpful, especially if you have a pedestal sink with no storage underneath.
Now that you’ve added some shelving options, it’s time to start organizing. Hang a hook on the back of the door for wet towels. If the bathroom is shared by multiple family members, assign each a shelf or drawer. Hair dryers, straighteners and curling irons take up a lot of room. You can buy a hanger for the wall or make one yourself using PVC pipe. This will eliminate clutter on counters or taking up an entire drawer to store these appliances.
Be creative and use baskets, boxes or other unique items to help you keep your bathroom clutter free.
