Living in a metro has many benefits—better work opportunities, more exposure and the ability to live the high life. However, there is one thing it lacks—bigger living spaces. The one area in the house that takes the brunt for it is the bathrooms. Newer constructions usually have small bathroom designs which means lesser space to store things. If you are looking to fix these space issues then help is at hand. Here easy ideas that will not break the bank or your walls.
Declutter the floor and install shelves on the walls to make space for your towels, bath essentials and even extra toilet paper. This will leave you with floor space to add a small planter to make the room look elegant and fresh. Consider organisers or hooks to accommodate your jewellery and make-up essentials. If you don’t have the heart to add nails on your walls, you could bring in a ladder, set it against a wall and use it as a storage unit.
Mirrors have a way of making a space look larger than it really is (and also fancier). Put this quality to use. Install bigger, full-length mirrors on the wall and add a storage unit behind it that will accommodate all knick-knacks.
More often than not, cabinets and wall shelves are placed next to or above the WC—storage is limited to only one area in the bathroom. Why not use the shower area for storage as well? Add floating shelves and keep all the small bathroom essentials here.
How often do you think of or even look under the sink? We suggest you put this ignored space to use. Add a vanity that reaches till the floor and have shelves installed inside it. You could even consider painting it to give your bathroom a fun, cheerful look.
If bringing in solid furniture is not an option, you can play around with baskets of various sizes. The advantage with baskets is that these are flexible, easy-to-move storage units that hardly take any space and can be moved in and out to the room. You could even use strings on walls and hang towels or even planters on it. Hooks too have a small visual impact; they don’t take any space and increase storage.
A lot of space goes unnoticed in the bathroom—take the door for instance. This could be an ideal place to add rods for towels. As for the shower curtain, get a hanging shoe organiser and hang it by the shower curtain rod to store loofahs, razors, body wash, shampoos, et all.
