Bathroom storage: the key to a clutter-free room
Bathrooms are often one of the smallest rooms in the house, yet they contain some of the largest permanent fixings. Bath tubs, showers, sinks and toilets always take up a large chunk of the available space, but it is small beauty products and amenities that litter the surfaces and leave the room looking cluttered. Practical bathroom storage is crucial for keeping the room neat and tidy and injecting some organisation.
Mirrored bathroom cabinets
Mirrors are one of the fundamental fittings in every bathroom, indeed it’s hard to imagine a bathroom without at least one mirror. Mirrored sliding-door bathroom cabinets are excellent for adding much-needed storage space.
When choosing an item of this kind, ensure that a product with high shelf space is chosen. This will allow for the storage of tall deodorant and shaving cream cans, for example, as well as shampoos and other large bottles. This kind of bathroom storage is usually wall-mountable and should come with all fixtures and fittings included.
A high proportion of bathroom furniture is produced in white, while wicker is one of the most popular materials used. These clean, natural tones help give bathrooms a fresh and hygienic look; however, there are other options.
Infuse a sense of calm and wellbeing into the area by adding Chinese-inspired furnishings. Ornate pieces can create a relaxing home-spa ambience. Storage items quickly become a feature of the space, rather than appearing to be a plain functional piece. Asian lacquerware can instantly add an air of sophistication to the room; choosing a cabinet with a rich lustrous finish contributes to this look and also looks fabulous. Think out of the box, as many of these lavish pieces will not have been made with the intention of acting solely as a bathroom feature. Expect to pay a little more for such a quality, sought-after piece but rest in the knowledge that your item will be truly original.
Storage units with multiple drawers are currently in vogue and so can be found widely across many websites and high street stores. A sturdy frame holds two or more fully removable drawers, swallowing up clutter and making cleaning effortless. The drawers are also typically deeper than standard and so are perfect for storing tall containers as well as folded fresh towels. Hand-woven rattan drawers with integrated handles are a timeless and appealing choice.
Basin cabinets and units
All bathrooms have a sink and adding a unit or cabinet beneath can be a neat and effective way of bringing additional storage space into a room. This type of furnishing mimics some of the more expensive bathroom designs, bringing a sense of style to the home. It’s wise to choose a cabinet with a shelf base that’s slightly raised from the floor, as this will protect belongings from any accidental flood damage.
Smaller rooms are also catered for. Extra-slim basin cabinets are similar, but reduced in size to fit into more compact areas. Rather than block bases, these cabinets are usually on pedestals with two shelves behind wipe-clean wooden doors.
Shower and bath caddies
Caddies are notably simple to put together and can be fitted into the corner of your bath wall or shower in seconds. In addition to this simplicity, it is helpful for home owners to select a caddy which requires no drilling or tools to install. A four-tier shower caddy has enough basket space to hold toiletries as well as sponges and bath flannels.
