How to Create More Storage Space in the Bathroom

Real Estate Agent

The bathroom is often a small room with a big clutter problem, and it can be a challenge to deal with its space limitations.  To conquer this problem, first get rid of as much as you can, and then explore some of the following options for the rest of your bathroom necessities.

Over-the-Sink Storage: Medicine cabinets are no longer the only option for over-the-sink storage.  Wall-mounted cabinets, wall-mounted racks, and open shelving can all replace the extremely shallow and often insufficient storage space of the medicine cabinet.  Think you'll miss the mirror?  Just use a wall-mounted extension mirror like this one from Stack and Stacks ($69.99), and you'll still have your vanity area in the bathroom.  The double arm extends the mirror 13 inches from the wall, the viewing mirror tilts for desired positioning, and it folds against the wall to save space when not in use.


Under-the-Sink Storage:  Even if you already have a sink with built-in cabinet storage, stacking shelves can significantly increase the amount of storage space under your sink.  In addition, many pedestal sinks are compatible with inexpensive under-the-sink drawers like the Sterilite 3-Drawer Storage Chest from Stacks and Stacks ($15.99).  To cover the shelves, sew a curtain to fit the area attach it to the sink with hot glue or hook-and-loop fasteners (like Velcro).


Over-the-Toilet Storage: The étagère is a classic over-the-toilet small-saving solution, and offers optimum storage of towels, candles, or paper products.  This Stacks and Stacks three tier étagère features decorative scroll work and a charming diamond-shaped accent mirror for only $85.99.


Shower Storage: Shower caddies and corner tub shelves use bathing space efficiently.  This shower caddy from Stack and Stacks ($39.99) makes room for tall bottles, accommodates plumbing, and can store bottles upside down due to its uniquely adjustable shelves; simply flip the tabs and slide shelves either up, down, or side to side.  Multiple compartments include a soap dish, toothbrush/razor holder, and two hooks.

I have always believed in under-the-sink storage which is pleasing to the eyes as it does not take up too much additional floor space. I would often choose either plastic racks or stainless steel shelves as opposed to wooden ones. This would ensure that they would last much longer as the bathroom is always humid and wet. Some wood types can withstand moisture but their lifespan is still generally shorter as compared to plastic and steel.
