You don’t have to sacrifice storage because you have a small space. Check out these hacks to make the most of every square inch of wall space in your small bathroom.
Bathrooms, like closets and pantries, are one of those home features that never seem to have enough storage space. Your bathroom serves many functions in a small space, from your morning makeup routine to your nightly shower. If you’re tired of battling your small bathroom but don’t have the time or money for a full remodel, try these quick fixes to maximize every square inch of space you have. These clever bathroom storage hacks will help you keep your makeup, toiletries and linens organized. Even the smallest bathroom can feel luxurious with the right storage.
Which one of these storage options are you adding to your bathroom?
A medicine cabinet built into the wall provides storage without taking up any of the space in a small bathroom. Furthermore, because it’s right above the vanity, it’s an easy-access area for storing items like toothpaste, floss, soap and other sink-related items. Simply swing the mirror open and grab what you require. With this behind-the-door hack, you can increase the storage capacity of your bathroom wall medicine cabinet. Attach a magnetic memo board to the inside of the door to make it a storage hub for small grooming tools and beauty products. To hold items, use slim magnetic containers and hooks, or attach magnets to the backs of cosmetic products to stick them right on the door. Make sure that everything is arranged so that the door can still close completely.
Mounted Towel Rack
Make use of vertical space to free up space in your bathroom cabinets or linen closet. For storing extra hand towels, washcloths and small bathroom essentials, a wall-mounted rack or storage unit with individual open cubbies is ideal. Roll larger towels to fit inside the small slots. Installing a towel rack is a simple DIY project that can easily be done with basic tools. With a few simple steps, you can have a functional and stylish wall–mounted storage solution that will make your bathroom look neat and tidy.
Floating Vanity Cabinets
Floating vanities are ideal for small bathroom spaces because they are mounted to the wall rather than the floor. Having that visible flooring beneath the vanity can make a big difference in the visual space. A floating vanity can make a small bathroom appear much larger! At the same time, floating vanities, like traditional vanities, typically include cabinets for storing paper goods and toiletries. Because of their placement near the plumbing fixtures, the cabinetry in a floating vanity space can be awkward at times, but if you learn to work with it, you gain extra storage.
Other Wall Mounted Cabinets
Aside from the wall cabinet ideas mentioned above, there are numerous other types of wall-mounted cabinets and storage solutions available, ranging from basket shelves to over-the-toilet floating shelves. To keep towels accessible without taking up valuable space, hang a towel rack on the shower door. To store bathroom essentials like washcloths and lotion, you could install shelves, a storage unit, or even a narrow ledge. Investigate your options to see what works best for you!
As the examples above show, there are numerous ways to improve storage in your bathroom, even in small spaces. Are you ready to improve your bathroom storage with new cabinets or other fixtures?
