Whether your bathroom is small or very spacious, storage room can run out quickly. In bath remodeling, many people focus on the big stuff – toilet, bath tub, and sink. But storage space is also extremely important to have a functional and well-organized bathroom. Fortunately, there are a few creative ways to design bathroom shelves that give more space and add beauty to your bath decor.
1. Buy a Vanity that can be Altered in Design
If you plan to buy a cabinet style vanity with storage space underneath, be sure there’s room to grow, meaning you can add an extra shelf or two if needed. Standard bathroom vanities usually have one or several cabinet doors, perhaps a couple of drawers, and plain empty space in the bottom of each cabinet. To add more storage, install rolling pullout bathroom shelves with one about mid-way from the floor and possibly another above that one if thereís enough room.
With rolling pullout shelves, you’ll have two or three pullout shelves to increase your space instead of one flat space to store bathroom accessories and/or towels. This enables you to organize items without clutter and to pull out the shelf as needed to grab the items. It’s a whole lot easier than reaching and bending to grab bath products from the back of the cabinet area. This type of shelf also works well to hide away a bath scale in an easy-to-reach space.
2. Recessed Bathroom Cabinet
To save floor space, install a decorative recessed cabinet in one of the walls. This cabinet can have multiple bathroom shelves to organize bath towels, wash cloths, and personal items such as a shaver, toilet paper, etc. Being recessed into the wall gives you extra storage without taking away from the floor area.
3. Corner Bathroom Shelves
A corner shelf is one that fits perfectly in a corner and expands the length between the two walls that meet. Corner shelves work great for a small bathroom where only a corner is left for extra space. The shelves are great for storing wash cloths or small bathroom accessories such as soaps, lotions, tissue, skin care products, etc.
4. Wall Shelves and Wall Cabinets
Wall shelves are anchored to a flat wall surface horizontally and are usually sized for small items, though they can be bigger. You can add a couple of wall shelves near the vanity mirror or near your tub to easily grab bath items when needed. Be sure the shelves are sturdy and well-secured for safety. If you have enough wall space, you might consider installing an entire wall cabinet above the toilet or anywhere that won’t be a nuisance. Wall cabinets usually contain several shelves concealed behind doors and are securely anchored to the wall.
5. Free-Standing Shelves
If you have the extra floor space, consider adding a free-standing shelf or bath rack. These are convenient because they can easily be moved or changed out when needed. They provide convenient bathroom shelves that are open and easy to reach when you need to grab a towel or any bath product.
With these five bathroom shelf ideas, you can quickly add storage to your bathroom without taking away from its overall look and feel!
