Whether you just want to get in and out, or whether you want relaxing “me time,” everyone wants to find what they need, when they need it. The bathroom usually gets the worst end of the architectural bargain, often being sacrificed for that spacious living room or a grand kitchen. The key to making such a small room as comfortable and convenient as possible is to maximize the space. An organized bathroom will not only keep your space clean and tidy, but will also create a contemporary feel to the space.
1 Shelving units :
The square footage of your bathroom doesn’t have to put a damper on your design party! The space from your bathroom floor to the ceiling is fair game for all your towels and toiletries. Shelving units can be attached to any open wall space in order to make up for space in bathrooms that have no vanities. They are great for stacking towels or displaying your favorite bathroom essentials. When mounting your shelves, be sure to drill your mounting brackets into studs as opposed to random spots on your wall. By securing your shelves to the studs, your shelves can withstand more weight and are less likely to fall off the wall.
2 Stackable drawers and crates :
If you like your toiletries the way you like your secrets, then stackable drawers and crates are for you. For those of you who like to show some of the goods, manufacturers do make clear bins and mesh crates. These options also allow you to avoid using a hammer or a drill. The bins and crates can be used alone, or they can be stacked, and if you can, then always add or take away these containers based on your needs. Family members can do their part to keep the bathroom mess to a minimum by holding to this rule: If it doesn’t fit in your bin, then it doesn’t belong in the bathroom. As long as the bins and crates stay in the same colour or design family, then your bathroom can have a modern, streamlined look.
3 Toilet maximization:
Toilet paper can become a great storage problem. It is important to keep toilet paper available at all times, without sacrificing walking space. Because the toilet is a permanent fixture in a bathroom, the space on and around it should be used to its full potential. Over-the-tank toilet paper holders are a great solution to the toilet paper problem. A single-roll holder can help if your toilet isn’t located by a wall that can hold a traditional toilet paper holder.
4 Space-saving shower storage:
Sometimes small bathrooms only come equipped with a standing shower, leaving little space for your toiletries. While most people usually use an apparatus that hangs from the showerhead, suction-cupped corner shelves are also a good alternative. They hold a lot of products and can be placed at any level, so you can avoid hitting it while showering. A shower shelf that extends from floor to ceiling gives space for the whole family. The shelf can attach to the corner of the shower that’s most convenient for all users. These shelves keep your toiletries at arm’s reach without cluttering floor space.
There are plenty of space-saving products for your bathroom, but the key is to keep things uniform in order to create your own unique look. By sticking to a colour scheme or design, your bathroom can be classy and full of character. Happy organizing!
