This is the final installment of our mini-series on small spaces. Today, we are tackling the bathroom. This is usually a small room that needs to hold a lot of random stuff. My younger siblings currently live with me, which that there are 4 adults sharing 1.5 bathrooms. We each have our own body wash, shampoo, grooming supplies, etc., which means that we need lots of storage. Here are a few ideas to help you make the most out of your small bathroom.
Extra Towel Bars
Most bathrooms only have 1 towel bar and it’s big enough to fit one towel. This doesn’t really work for families. So, install some extras, that way everyone has their own towel bar and you don’t share towels. Also, you can buy hand towel bars with a hanger that allows them to be placed on the main door, a cupboard door or even the door to your medicine cabinet.
Over The Toilet Storage
This is a great way to add more shelf space to your bathroom without taking away much needed space. What’s great about using this space is that you can make it fit your style. You could simply buy shelves and install them into the wall or you can buy an over-the-toilet cabinet. The benefit of the cabinet is that you can hide your mess of deodorants, razors and other items. Both options come in a variety of styles and colours, meaning you can continue to make your room match your style.
When I lived in Collingwood, we only had a shower in our bathroom, no bathtub. The shower caddy was a life saver! Growing up the edge of the bathtub was where we stored all of our shampoo and body wash. This is harder to do now that we are able to purchase Costco-sized bottles of shampoo, which take up a whole corner by themselves! Like many other types of storage, there are a variety of options to choose from. You can get caddies that are secured on a pole that reaches from the floor to the ceiling, ones that suction to the wall, or ones that hang from the shower head. Then, once you choose one of those three options, your options open up even more! Shower caddies help keep everything you need in the shower easily accessible and organized.
