If you are planning on undertaking a luxury bathroom renovation, you must factor in one crucial aspect of toilet and bathroom design storage. If your bathroom does not have enough storage space, it will end up getting messy and cluttered. You may also be forced to store certain bathroom essentials outside of the bathroom, which can be quite inconvenient.
Therefore, before you begin your bathroom remodelling in Adelaide, make sure you are ready with useful and effective storage solutions for your bathroom. Here are some popular bathroom storage solutions that you can draw inspiration from.
Build a shower niche
While some only use a bar of soap and a bottle of shampoo in the shower, others also make use of body scrubs, loofahs, conditioners, and many more. And yes, all of these shower items need to be put somewhere! You can tackle this particular storage issue by building a shower niche.
Also known as an in-built shower shelf, a shower niche is a permanent recessed shelf in your shower that allows you to use the space inside the wall as extra storage. It is a handy and visually interesting storage solution that can be used for bathtubs too!
Think under the sink
The area under your sink is an underutilised storage opportunity. You could turn the space under your sink into a storage option by adding a shelf below the sink. This can be something as simple as a single rack. Alternatively, build some vintage shelves to give your entire sink a more designer feel.
Not on board with the shelf idea? Store items in small portable baskets under your sink and keep them out of sight by giving your sink a skirt made of fabric. It’s a simple and yet unique idea to hide things under the sink!
Hook everything up
It may not be an entirely novel idea, but don’t underestimate the usefulness of a simple hook in your bathroom – or even many hooks. Minimise clutter by hanging towels, robes, or caddies on hooks around your bathroom. Here’s a tip for those who are tight on space: hang a hook behind your bathroom door!
Using hooks can offer you an advantage because they take up less room compared to a towel rack, for example. Do not worry if you think adding hooks will ruin the aesthetics of your bathroom. You can get beautiful antique-looking hooks or even hooks in a novelty design to add some variety to your bathroom.
Introduce furniture from outside the bathroom
You do not have to place limits on yourself when deciding what goes into your bathroom. Sometimes, adding bits of furniture into your bathroom from other parts of the house can give it a truly refreshing and interesting feel.
Some things you could do is lean a wooden ladder against the wall to use as an aesthetic towel rack or wall shelf. Or you could introduce a petite stool in the corner to hold a potted plant or your make-up bag. Another fun idea would be to introduce a bar cart on wheels into your bathroom. The bar cart could be a handy replacement for a cabinet and the wheels will allow you to move it out of the way as needed.
Get creative with shelving
There are two benefits to creative use of shelving in a bathroom. Firstly, it opens up more storage space. Secondly, it can add dimension to your bathroom. Built-in shelving, a narrow floor to ceiling cabinet, or pull-out storage are some alternatives to traditional bathroom storage options. Make sure to use all the space available to you, even in corners like the narrow area beside the toilet.
