Small Bathroom Storage Ideas

“Medicine cabinets are an obvious storage solution, but I’ll take it a step further and recommend recessed medicine cabinets because they aren’t as visually obtrusive.  A big thing to keep in mind with a small bathroom is that you want as little as possible sticking out into the space.  Recessed wall and shower niches are also great for items used daily.  Cabinetry towers are great for a small bathroom,” says Leslie, “You can get lots of additional storage in a design element that doesn’t take up too much vanity space.  Plus, they draw the eye up to the ceiling making the room look bigger.  I’d recommend one in the center of a small vanity, or one on each end of a big vanity”

“Another way to add storage is to incorporate a cabinet tower on a banjo countertop (when the countertop from the vanity carries over the toilet).  I’d also recommend more drawers in the vanity of a small space.  This is doable because in a bathroom you typically need space for small items and adding drawers helps maximize and organize the space.”

Leslie is fantastic at resolving design, layout and functionality issues, all while creating a stunning space.  Schedule a complimentary, in-home consultation with her today to get started on your ideal space!
