5 Ways to Create Additional Storage Space in Your Bathroom

If you always desired to have a larger bathroom, you are certainly not alone. It’s one room in the house that almost everyone would like to have a bit more space. As a matter of fact, according to many successful real estate agents, people who have larger than average-sized bathrooms tend to be the individuals who sell their homes the quickest.

Although it would cost a lot more money than many of us are prepared to spend in order to enlarge our bathroom space, the good news is that there are some ways that you can create additional storage space in your bathroom; ones that are probably a lot easier to do than you might think.

Check these out:

Add some storage towers. If you have something like a pedestal sink in your family bathroom, one way that you can create more space for everyone is to purchase what are known as storage towers. Customarily, they are tall and vertical, perfect for fitting into small spaces and corners. Simply purchase some that match the sink and assign different shelves for each individual.

Make a dresser your vanity. Who said that the only place for a dresser is your bedroom? We certainly didn’t. As a matter of fact, by moving one of them into your bedroom, not only are you able to instantly create more drawers for your bathroom, but it can also give you a bigger mirror (something else that a lot of bedrooms tend to lack).

Use a coat rack for your towels. When it comes to small things that can serve a pretty big (décor) purpose, a lot of us would probably put coat racks on our list, especially if we have children. It’s a quick and easy way to keep from simply throwing our coats and scarves on the chair next to the front door or on the living room couch. For similar reasons, you might want to consider putting a coat rack in the bathroom. That way, if there are not enough spaces to hang towels in the shower, they still have a place to go; one that prevents the bathroom from looking cluttered (and the towels from mildewing).

Don’t overlook candleholders. If you had pluming problems, you would probably call a company like Filan & Conner to assist you. On the other hand, if you were looking for some decor tips, you would probably look through an interior decorating magazine. One thing that we saw in a few of them was this suggestion. Get a candleholder with a top that can support the size of a small crystal plate. It’s a really cute way to display some of your trial-size toiletries or most-used fingernail polishes.

Get a few wicker baskets. All of us have guests over from time to time and something that says “Welcome” in a really hospitable way is to put their bathroom needs in a small wicker basket. From towels and washcloths, to soaps, socks and a toothbrush and toothpaste, it’s something that can fit nicely in the corner of the guest bathroom or under the sink—perfectly.
