In a bathroom, a lot of items compete for a little bit of space, making bathroom organization sometimes hard to manage.  What type of storage solutions do you really need?  Here are some tools that might make a big difference:

1. BUILT-INS — Built-ins are better suited to the small space of a bathroom than you might think:

  • Even the smallest wall space can accommodate new shelving when built right and open shelves save space by not having doors that swing open.
  • Recessed built-ins can take advantage of the hollow spaces hiding behind your drywall — consider a recessed medicine cabinet, floor-to-ceiling cabinets, or cubbies in your shower.

2. VANITIES — Make the most of this bathroom staple, by consider these vanity twists:

  • The Vanity Tower – A fabulous way to add storage without taking up more floor space, the vanity tower sits on top of your bathroom counter, like an upper cabinet. Easily adaptable to your bathroom’s style, vanity towers can even feature glass doors or open shelves to give the illusion of a more open space.
  • Open Shelf Vanity – Vanity furniture pieces with shelving are becoming more popular. These pieces creatively and practically store your daily necessities, when you combine with baskets or other containers to maintain a clean look.

3. CABINETS — Take your typical cabinet up a notch:

  • Open Shelf Cabinets – Consider built-in cabinetry with no doors for the flexibility to use baskets, trays, or other containers.
  • Drawers – Including drawers in your cabinets is an efficient way to maximize your bathroom storage. Consider installing small drawers with dividers for makeup, or a specialty drawer for larger items.

4. BASKETS — When in doubt, add a basket! Options for color, styles, and textures are endless. And the storage possibilities are fun, exciting and oh-so-helpful:

  • Keep small items organized on open shelves.
  • Artfully display toilet paper rolls.
  • Gather towels or washcloths.
  • Hide your hair dryer, cord and all!
