One of the most used rooms in your home is your bathroom, as a result it can quickly become cluttered and cramped. There’s a simple solution to this common problem, and that is with built in storage. It’s important to think about adding storage solutions that can help keep things organized when remodeling your bathroom. You can create a functional and stylish bathroom that meets all your needs by adding shelving space and other organizational features. Today, we at American Hometown Services would like to share some built in storage ideas for your bathroom remodel.
Built-in Storage Surrounding the Sink
You can’t go wrong with having built-in shelves within arm’s reach for extra hand cosmetics, soap, medication, and more, the bathroom vanity is where you spend a lot of your time in the bathroom. You could have a cabinet built into the wall above or next to the sink to store all those items on the other hand. The cabinet can have a mirror on the front, keeping your things hidden until you need them for even more function.
Under the Sink Built-in Storage
Under the sink storage is another great option. If you have a smaller bathroom with less countertop space, this is especially beneficial. To keep items hidden but still easily accessible, you can install cabinets or shelves in the wall under the sink. You can help the unit further blend into the bathroom décor, by adding doors to the shelves. For items you don’t use regularly, like cleaning supplies or spare toilet paper, this storage is usually best.
Walls with Built-in Storage
Taking advantage of empty wall space is one of the easiest ways to increase space in a room. Freeing up space elsewhere and organizing your belongings, the built-in shelving units allow you to store towels and other items.
If you’re looking for something more creative than a standard shelving unit, consider installing floating shelves. Without taking up too much floor space, these shelves are hung or built directly onto the wall and offer discreet storage.
Built-in Storage in Shower
There are plenty of items that you need close at hand when you’re showering or taking a bath. Use open shelves to store your shampoo, soap, and other shower products. Keeping your things separate from anyone else who uses the shower is made easy by having multiple levels of shelves. You can even put in a shelf for your towels there’s a spot that won’t get wet.
Built-in Storage Around the Toilet
One place where you really want to have storage nearby is the toilet. You can even get creative and install a built-in shelf for toiletries, and the toilet paper can easily be stored on built-in shelves. You can also install a small shelf above it to hold shampoo bottles and other items if you don’t want shelves in the shower if your toilet is near the tub or shower. Consider adding built-in cubbies or shelves to organize all your shower accessories like towels and washcloths if you have space.
Additional Bathroom Storage Ideas
Hanging hooks on the back of the door to hang towels or adding storage baskets to shelves or the floor are other ideas. You can use these baskets to store items like extra toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and other items that need to be tucked away. Consider installing a corner shelf in an unused corner if you need more floor space.
