The bathroom tends to become one of those areas that are used all day, every day. However, there are a whole lot of necessities that go in that specific space. Unfortunately, for those that have a smaller bathroom, it can be quite difficult to find a place to store your items. If you have a smaller bathroom, then you might be wondering how you are going to store your items. Keeping that in mind, we have put together a guide on sneaky storages tricks to help you along the way.
Repurpose Your Bar Cart
If you happen to have a bar cart, to store your favorite wines in your kitchen for additional storage then it could be time to bring it to your bathroom as well. However, when bringing your bar cart to your bathroom you want to repurpose it and use it for towels, soaps and even for toiletries.
Do not discount using wall mounts for those items that need to be hung. Wall mounts are great as you get to hang what you need while having those items displayed and accessible at any given time.
We have all been guilty of leaving our favorite lotion on top of the sink counter, maybe a toothbrush out of place or even a few other items. Instead of putting them away in the medicine cabinet and forget about the item, add a simple tray on top of your counter. Doing so will give you additional storage while complimenting your décor.
Bring on Baskets
If you do not have a linen and towel closet but have space underneath your counter, it’s time to bring in a few wicker baskets. Roll up a few towels and add them in your basket, not only is this great for having your towels on hand at any given time, but it’s stylish and adds a little laundry room décor vibe to your bathroom.
Add Open Shelving
Small bathrooms are typically shorter and a bit less cohesive than larger ones. With that being said add additional storage and height by having an open shelving display. Furthermore, open shelving is great as it allows you to have more space to place your items with a contemporary twist.
Having a large vanity might seem like the opposite of what you might want to do, due to how much space it might take up. However, when you want to achieve more space and also want to bring a chicness to the bathroom, a large vanity can be what you need. It’s the perfect blend between the best of two worlds- storage and style.
Although, a stand-alone tub might not seem like a storage trick it actually is. Due to how much space you will have if you simply minimize your bathtub having a stand-alone tub can be the way to go. Bathtubs are big and bulky while a stand-alone tub is simple and charming while giving you more floor space- a win-win for all.
Storage above Your Toilet
If you can’t decide where else to add storage, above your toilet is a place to start. You can add a cubby or an additional tray or even simply place items on there that need a place to be displayed on. Keep the items to a minimum to ensure that the room still remains sleek.
Narrow organizers can be placed in almost any area of a bathroom, which is perfect for smaller spaces. They can be placed alongside your vanity or on the other end of the bathroom just for that added dose of storage without taking away from the room and its décor.
Organized Linen Closet
If you have a bathroom linen closet, then you know how messy that particular room can become. Instead of ignoring it, organize it and have a put together, in order to open space in that closet and allow you to repurpose your new-found space.
