Smart storage solutions are an essential ingredient in creating a stylish, organized bathroom, no matter what size it is. As shelving allows you to take advantage of wall space while keeping clutter to a minimum and displaying décor, it can also be chic and elegant at the same time. Read on for a fresh batch of clever, designer-approved ideas, from built-in storage units to sleek floating shelves, floor-to-ceiling cubbies, and even windowsills that serve double duty.
1. Install Floor-To-Ceiling Cubbies
These floor-to-ceiling cubbies in a bathroom can provide ample room for storage. Put things like toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and other bulk items behind closed doors, then show off your décor and towels on the open shelves. I love how these tonal towels reflect the wood grains of the storage unit itself.
2. Free Up Space For Design Moments
If you add a small shelf for your soap and hand lotion, you can install a much sleeker, larger sink—even if it doesn’t offer any surface space. Hidden shelves behind the mirror will come in handy, too.
3. Customize a Vanity
Full of fun patterns and whimsical motifs, this powder room proves that small spaces can still shine. Style aside, the strategically built vanity features extra shelves on one side to accommodate hand towels and decor.
4. Bring In a Bath Caddy Tray
If there aren’t any built-in shelves by the bathtub, opt for a bath caddy tray. Simple in design, super convenient, and much more affordable than getting a contractor to build shelves. The one in this Studio DB-designed bathroom introduces a touch of warmth to the contrasting marble materials.
5. Blend In WithThe Surrounding Materials
A built-in shelf will definitely be useful above a freestanding bathtub. Let it blend in with the surrounding wall by sticking with the same materials throughout. If you love organic, clean lines, use this nook as inspiration.
6. Use Every Square Inch
Take advantage of every nook and cranny in your bathroom. To make extra storage room for bath products and extras, install two marble floating shelves over the tub.
7. Go Below the Sink
This marble sink vanity is a minimalist’s dream. With plenty of space for bathroom essentials in the sleek, handleless drawers as well as the shelf on the floor, you can keep clutter to a minimum and let the beautiful washstand take the design spotlight.
