Renovating a bathroom isn’t just about making the space look better; it’s about making the space work better overall. For some homeowners in Atlanta, GA, this may mean upgrading the room’s layout, fixtures, lighting, or heating. For others, it’s about improving one other important feature: storage.
There are several ways you can make your bathroom remodeling project achieve this goal.
Does your bathroom currently have a wide but underused wall? Or do you have a series of clunky side tables taking up room against it?
If so, it might be a good idea to open up bathroom space and a neater storage zone by building a storage ledge. This would let you place everything you need within easy reach, while creating a clean, sleek line for the room’s aesthetic. The space under the ledge can also hold additional containers, like laundry hampers or towel baskets.
According to experts, ledges fit right into any bathroom style and are one of the popular design trends heading into 2019.
Instead of considering the width of your walls, think of how thick they are. You might be able to create recessed shelving, and kill two birds with one stone: open up storage room while keeping your floor space available for other uses.
Sized to your needs, recessed shelving could also come in handy in the shower in place of a caddy.
Stacked corner shelving
Don’t have enough walls? That’s all right. You can still have small, custom-built shelves fitted into corners. Like recessed shelving, this kind of storage can work well in your bathing space (if there’s enough room for it). Why place soap and shampoo on your tub’s corners when you can put them on stacked shelving instead?
If you can’t find open wall space, one other option is to simply create it. Aside from moving around furniture and decor, look at your vanity. Is it the type where the mirror takes up the entire backsplash? You might want to scale down the mirror and flank it with niches that can store not only toiletries, but towels and robes as well.
You could also revamp your vanity to maximize the space underneath. Is there a way to carve out more storage space—for example, by adding holders to the backs of cabinet doors?
Just remember: the key to designing more bathroom storage is to make the most out of available corners, heights, and other niches below eye level.
