Making Space in the Bathroom

making-space-in-the-bathroomAre you tired of looking at your bathroom and seeing all the clutter of health and beauty products? With these six tips, you can create more storage in your bathroom and keep your space organized.

1. Free-Standing Storage

A free-standing storage unit can also be a great option. Available in any design you can imagine, this type of shelving can look aesthetically pleasing while it stores your things. For even more storage, you can get decorative boxes or baskets and keep your items hidden in them on the unit.

2. Install a Wall Cabinet

If your bathroom is short on floor space, there is a simple solution. Simply create more space with a wall cabinet. Because they do not take up any space on the floor and only hang from the wall, wall cabinets can give you a great deal more space for your products without limiting the size of your bathroom. Both installation and removal of a wall cabinet is an easy job and can be done without outside assistance.

3. Counter Space

Some bathrooms have no cabinets under the sink area. This problem can be fixed with the placement of fabric around the vanity. You can use adhesive velcro strips to attach the fabric of your choice to the sink vanity. When this privacy curtain is in place, you can keep your clutter in boxes behind the curtain and hidden from view.

4. In Plain Sight

Not all of your storage space needs to be hidden behind shelves, cabinets, or curtains. Wicker baskets are great for storage, and have the added benefit of being visually appealing. Or you could use decorative boxes in various sizes and stack them for even more storage.

5. Wall Shelving

Wall shelves take up even less space than wall cabinets, but still provide you with the same amount of storage. You can create your own by buying short crates and painting them any color of your choice. After they dry, they can be hung from the wall by adhesive hanging strips. Hang them in a way that looks pleasing, and you have created artwork that serves as storage.

If you are feeling less creative or constructive, you can buy small shelving units and place them along the walls. These are available in a variety of colors and sizes to suit your needs.

6. Linen Closet

Not everything needs to be stored in your bathroom. If you have a linen closet or even a closet in your bedroom, you can use this space to store extra towels and things you don’t use on a daily basis. Bath towels can take up a great deal of room, and storing them here can give you space for much more. There is no need to clutter your bathroom with things that you don’t use regularly.

With these tips, you can create enough storage to keep your things organized and hidden. All it takes is a few changes, and you will have a bathroom that you are proud to showcase.
