Storage Ideas for the Bathroom
A few small changes that will unclutter your bath can turn this functional room into an inviting retreat.
• Put up shelves for extra storage. You can customize them to fit your needs.
• A three-tiered plate rack can be used as a nice holder for soaps, combs, and all other knick knacks.
• A bath-side soap holder adds charm to an old fashioned tub, and it will certainly come in handy.
• Keep a small basket of single-use soaps on hand for guests.
• Give an old china bowl new life as a container for some potpourri.
• Even the smallest shelf in the shower area provides convenient storage for bath towels and soaps.
• An old dresser or sideboard is a great substitute for a standard vanity. Just cut a hole in the top to accommodate the sink, plus one in the back for the pipes.
• Instead of the usual square, wall mounted mirror, bring in an antique. The effect is well worth the small storage space that you’ll lose.
• Avoid decorating themes in a small bathroom. They can be overwhelming when space is tight.
• Make sure there are no hooks or towel bars protruding into awkward places.
• Keep bath items handy and clutter to a minimum by using small baskets. Assign one to each family member.
• Hand painted jars are ideal for storing cotton balls, cotton swabs, bobby pins, and much more.
• Transfer lotions and oils to pretty, clear bottles.
