Tips to Maximize Your Bathroom Storage

May 18, 2016


If you have one of those bathrooms that seems hardly large enough to move around in, any remodeling efforts must be focused on making the most of the space that is available. The best way to do this is through replacing an outdated vanity with a smaller one. When picking a new vanity from the wide selection available, there are a few things you have to remember. Below are some tips on how to maximize your bathroom storage.

  • To add a storage area, ensure that the small vanity you pick has a built in cupboard under it. You will be able to use this cupboard for storing things like cleaning products, toilet paper, soap, fresh towels and toiletries. This will use all the space underneath the vanity that was lost when you bought that pedestal sink instead.

  • Put a large mirror in your bathroom. That will provide the illusion that the space is much bigger than it really is. Remove the small mirror that is above the vanity now and trade it for a bigger one.

  • Try to look for a small vanity which will tuck into the corner of your bathroom corner. This is a technique that could lead to more actual floor space. You will find many styles on hand to fit the space available.

  • If you really don’t want a cupboard underneath the sink, you can go with a pedestal model. This will open up additional floor space where you can, for instance, keep a small waste basket.

  • If you want to lighten your bathroom, then consider setting up a bay window with an alcove. This not only allows fresh air to come in but also brings sunshine into your bathroom. You can use the alcove as a shelf to store things like soap trays and shampoo as well as beauty products.

  • Losing the towel rod and instead installing coat hooks is a proven technique in maximizing the storage space of your bathroom. When many people are sharing a small bathroom, it is hard for them to hang up towels on small towel rod without them bunching up. Once you replace the towel rod with coat hooks, every one could can hang their towels and they’ll dry much quicker.

These are just some of the ways to take advantage of your bathroom’s space to improve its storage ability. Instead of having to knock down walls and redo piping, you can simply replace or re-position certain items and maximize that amount of available space.
