Smart Storage for a Clutter-Free Bathroom
January 31, 2018
Bathrooms are one of the smallest, but most utilized rooms in our homes. In a small space, functionality and organization are of utmost importance, as small spaces can become cluttered and messy very quickly. By adding good storage to your bathroom, you can save yourself time and headaches each day and can make cleaning a breeze. Let’s look at some ways you can make your bathroom storage work for you.
One area of your bathroom you can use for storage is the area under your sink. Bathroom vanities with built in storage are readily available, but pay attention to the drawer configuration when picking out a vanity for your space. Having a vanity with no drawers, or ill placed drawers can leave you frustrated and with a big mess over time. Open vanities are another option, and look great while things stay organized, but can be stressful to keep neat with daily use.
Consider a Linen Closet
If you are renovating your bathroom you might consider adding a small linen closet for storage. If you are simply updating your existing bathroom this may not be an option. However, if you are doing a full renovation, adding a closet can give you a considerable amount of storage. If your bathroom does not have space to allow a linen closet, a medicine cabinet in combination with the vanity storage can help make up some of that storage space.
Built In Storage
Built in storage shelves are another great option, especially in smaller bathrooms. Medicine cabinets can help keep toiletries off the counter tops. They can make your bathroom feel more organized and clean. In the shower, built-in cubbies can keep your shampoo and conditioner off the floor, making the shower not only appear cleaner, but also make it easier to clean.
When adding storage solutions to your bathroom be sure to consider the accessibility of the storage areas. Built in storage shelves should be at a height that can be accessed by anyone, including those in a wheelchair, likewise vanity storage should be designed with accessibility in mind. By taking the time and consideration to make your bathroom more accessible now, you’ll be increasing the resale value of your home.
