There are ways to expand the storage capacity of your bathroom without remodelling or adding square feet to your space. Here are strategies on how you can accomplish this in either your master or secondary bathroom.
Add in-wall storage
Although medicine cabinets are no longer the fad these days, especially for bathroom projects, their benefits have given birth to various types of tall and sleek in-wall cabinets that can hold many essential items. You can place one for each of your bathrooms or on an empty sidewall.
Instead of using vanity cabinets, you can install u-drawers that can wrap around the plumbing system. These drawers can save a lot of space and hold some of your essentials.
Add above-shower storage
If you have a high ceiling in your bathroom, you can install above-shower storage. This is useful for storing bath tissue or guestroom towels.
Back-of-door storage cabinets
Another great way of increasing your bathroom space is by adding a storage unit at the back door. These cabinets can hold cleaning items, toiletries and other necessities.
Add rail organisers are commonly used in a kitchen, and it is where the ingredients or meal preparation tools are stored. However, you can also install one on a tub wall which is great, especially if you have a shared bathroom.
Peg racks and swap hook
Peg racks can hold one bath sheet and are commonly installed in your bathroom wall. You can even add three or more swap hooks for additional functionality in your bathroom.
Add a towel rack
Another great way of storing towels, especially if you have a small bathroom, is to install a towel rack like those in a hotel. These towel racks are usually mounted high on a shower and beyond the spray zone of your showers. Learn more here about vanities.
Add freestanding storage
If your bathroom has extra floor space, you can add a freestanding storage cabinet or cart. Also, you can put storage baskets below a floating vanity since it will have some space at the bottom.
Eliminate dead zones in your bathroom
You can eliminate dead zones by adding false panels in front of your vanities. These panels can replace tilt-out trays that usually hold floss, toothbrush and other small items.
These are just some of the ways you can expand your bathroom if you have a limited budget or you are not ready to launch a remodelling project yet.
