5 Sneaky Bathroom Storage Solutions You Can Work On
An old chair holds a lot of promise
In any part of the home, storage is one of the most important considerations. Given our numerous belongings, it's important to find a special place for every item to avoid clutter and eyesores. Some have taken creativity to the next level by working with awkward spots and niches, and there are a few who've invested in sleek must-haves.
If you're in the process of improving your space, you can take inspiration from the photos below. These spaces feature storage solutions in unexpected yet easy ways that you can recreate. Take note of the ideas and consider consulting with a professional before getting to work:
Niches are in.
In most shower areas, many homeowners keep bottles of shampoo and conditioner in bath caddies and baskets. Aside from installing rods and shelves, you can add inconspicuous storage by way of wall niches. Carve out a niche on one side of the wall and use it to store soaps, bath gels, and all of your essentials. Be sure to keep this nook clean at all times to prevent clutter. As much as possible, limit the items to those that you use on a daily basis.
Chairs aren't just for sitting.
Do you have an old chair gathering dust in the garage or storage room? Bring it out, clean it thoroughly, and use it as towel holder. It can sit prettily in one corner so your clean towels won't get wet. Another alternative would be to use the chair to hold a tray of essentials and other knickknacks.
Multipurpose must-haves are always needed.
Notice the shiny, sleek ottoman in this bathroom? It's a storage ottoman that can be used to keep towels, extra tissue rolls, and other toiletries. You may have read this tip a couple of times before—multipurpose pieces help you save on space while keeping your home clean and beautiful.
Choose mirrored bathroom cabinets.
A compact space can benefit from mirrors—why not take it a notch higher by choosing cabinets with reflective surfaces? This gives you storage while expanding the space and giving you a way to check your appearance before stepping out.
Don't leave any space unused.
Many homeowners have already mastered the craft of turning corners and blank spaces into storage areas. Give your bathroom a thorough checking and see if you've left any space unused. See that tiny area above your mirror? Consider installing a slim wooden plank that can hold decor, potted plants, and some of your extra toiletries. Remember to keep a footstool under the sink so you can get whatever you need with ease.
