A lot of people dream of having a large, sprawling bathroom with endless options of what you can do with it. However, in reality, most of us are lucky if we get a “normal”-shaped bathroom, never mind a spacious one.
If this is the case then you really need to make the most of storage and there’s no reason why it can’t be stylish at the same time.
Here are a few of the best examples of stylish storage solutions for your bathroom.
When space is important, think practical and compact. This doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on style. Storage tables generally have handy compartments for storage and space on top for a pot plant or other bathroom trinkets. Funky, fun and perfect for hiding all your bathroom essentials.
On the Wall
When space is limited then use every available area for storage. Wall hooks or small floating ledges are ideal – John Louis have a good selection. From towels to beauty products, they are a great way of keeping clutter off the floor, but can also add to the décor and feel of the room to keep it on-trend.
Whichever way you do it, stacked shelving is the perfect storage solution and there’s no reason why you can’t think outside the box with it. Up-cycling is really popular and stylish right now so make your own shelves out of spare pieces of wood, a second-hand bookcase OR an old wooden step ladder. There are so many ways to create shelving that looks great and doesn’t even have to cost you anything. If you make your own stacked storage you can even shape the shelves to fit your bathroom, making more use of the space.
Take a Seat
Seating in bathrooms may seem like a strange choice, but if you incorporate storage into it then it can be a blessing in disguise, especially if you have children. A stylish bench with storage under the seat, like this beauty from Not on the Highstreet, is the perfect place to store bath toys, towels or even toiletries. It is also a great place for mum and dad to sit whilst their children have a bath.
Under the Sink
If you have a pedestal sink then you can turn it into something useful for storage as well as great to look at. By placing wicker baskets and tubs around the pedestal base you are keeping storage out of the way, but adding to the look and feel of the bathroom style. If you don’t want your storage on display then add a piece of fabric as a “skirt” around the base of your sink to keep everything hidden. Depending on your taste this could be bold and bright or fairly neutral to complement your décor.
Recessed cabinets are the best way to save space as they fit into a pocket in your actual wall. They add storage without taking up usable space. If you incorporate a mirror onto the front of your cabinet then this will add a modern and stylish twist to your bathroom as well as a feeling of space.
Alternatively, add a mirrored cabinet with shelves underneath it, like this one from Amazon, that will create space for your toiletries inside and knick knacks or wash cloths underneath.
There are so many options for stylish bathroom storage solutions so now it is just a case of deciding which ones you want to use.
