Keeping a clean bathroom can be tricky – it’s one of the most heavily used spaces in your home. If you don’t have the option of creating your dream bathroom from the blueprints up, there are still plenty of ways to keep your existing bathroom beautiful and organized. Follow these effortless design and space-saving storage solutions to create a classy, clean, and clutter-free space for your bath and beyond!
Large mirrors go a long way in opening rooms by making any space seem larger. Make your bathroom appear more airy without sacrificing space by placing a large vanity mirror over the sink or tiling an entire wall with a frame-less mirror.
For smaller bathrooms or budgets, opt for a stylish medicine cabinet or storage mirror in which you can keep your toiletries compactly out of sight. (Bonus tip: For even more space inside a medicine cabinet, you can affix little storage containers along the inside of the door for your makeup and toothbrush).
Shelves and cabinets are a space-saver’s best friend in the bathroom. A classic space saver is an over-the-toilet storage tower, available in a variety of finishes to go along with just about any decorative theme.
For a handsome alternative to traditional over-the-toilet shelves, consider a wall-mounted cabinet with additional towel racks. If you still find yourself short on space or need a storage space that’s a safe distance away from kids, install an overhead shelf above the door or existing cabinets.
Shelves and cabinets do not necessarily mean you need to hire a handyman. For a cost-effective, quick, and quirky storage solution, consider a set of colorful, mobile drawers for toiletries you can move in and out of your bathroom as needed.
For a busy bathroom which several family member and occasional guests use, organizing isn’t just about aesthetics – it’s important for hygiene as well. To keep towels organized in a tight space that doesn’t allow for a traditional towel valet, try installing multiple towel bars in a tier on the door or on an available wall. Coat hooks are also a funky alternative to hold towels and make for an interesting decorative statement. Yet another alternative to a traditional towel rack is a decorative ladder upon which you can place towels or other decorative elements.
