  • 20 Jan 2022

The chances are that while taking a shower, you are likely to knock down a bottle of shampoo and trigger a small avalanche of numerous shower gels and hair conditioners. Sometimes, you might be looking for a specific item in one of the bathroom cabinets and end up moving multiple objects out of the way before reaching it. If such things are something that you experience on a regular basis, it is a sign that you are running out of bathroom storage space.

If you need additional storage space in the bathroom, it is time for a bathroom remodel! It might not seem like it, but it is relatively easy to do. Start by upgrading sanitary hardware. Next, use built-in shelving and add a few shelves in the shower. By doing that, you will end up with plenty of bathroom storage space and declutter the entire bathroom in no time!

Below, you will find a few solutions that might inspire you and make it easier for you to finally find a place for all the hair conditioner bottles you put in the shower. 

Shower Bathroom

Upgrade the Hardware

One of the first things that you should do to increase bathroom storage space is to upgrade sanitary hardware. If you own both a shower and a bath, why not get rid of the bathtub? It would give you plenty of additional space! Other than that, you could invest in a shower bath and get the best of both worlds.

In addition, using a bidet converter kit instead of a separate bidet is always an option. With such a kit, you could both add space to the bathroom and save money on toilet paper! You can choose a bidet in the form of a hose attached to the toilet or in the form of a bidet toilet seat. It is up to you!

Add Shower Shelves

What about adding a few additional shelves in the shower? Such shelves will look great if you manage to find a few that are made of the same materials as the shower stall. In addition, the shelves should match the color scheme of the entire bathroom. That way, you will be able to both increase storage space in the bathroom and make it look stylish and modern.

When installing the shelves, make sure that it is mounted at the right level. You should not have trouble reaching for the items placed on the shelves, but at the same time, the shelves should not make it harder for you to move around while taking a shower. In that regard, a shelf that can be placed in the corner of the shower stall is an excellent option!

Opt for Floating Cabinets

If you have a smaller bathroom, one of the best ways to add storage space to it is to mount a few floating cabinets on the walls. Due to the fact that the cabinets do not stretch all the way to the floor, it will make the bathroom seem visually open. What is more, you will gain extra space for storing towels, toiletries, and other objects.

Consider Built-In Shelving

If floating cabinets are ot something that you are interested in, you might want to opt for built-in shelves instead! By putting a recessed shelf into a wall, you will both open up the space in the bathroom and gain extra storage space. It is an especially useful solution for a small bathroom, as it allows you to make the most of every inch of space.

On top of giving you a place to put bathroom essentials and display decorative items, built-in shelving has great aesthetic and practical appeal. Depending on the shape of the shelf and its placement, it can add a modern touch to the bathroom. Moreover, such a shelf can be placed anywhere, giving you a great opportunity to get creative!

Use Vertically Stacked Hanging Baskets

If you want a more organized bathroom but do not want to take care of installing additional shelves and cabinets, you can always use vertically stacked hanging baskets! Such baskets are particularly useful if you have a small bathroom with limited countertop and shelving space but do not have much time and money to spend on remodeling the bathroom.

Due to the fact that such baskets are small and narrow, they will fit in tight corners that often cannot be utilized and provide you with additional storage space for toiletries, hairdryers, and other items that you use on a daily basis. Aside from that, the baskets can really add to the look of the entire bathroom.

You have quite a few different basket styles to choose from, meaning that finding a basket that will match the look and feel of your bathroom should not be that challenging. For instance, if you are after a rustic feel, you can go for a wicker basket. On the other hand, if you are after something modern, a metal basket should do just fine.

In Conclusio

With the ideas listed above, you should be able to add storage space to your bathroom and keep it clutter-free. Remember that it is all about making the most out of every inch of space, especially if you do not have much of it.

You can start by upgrading your sanitary hardware to multifunction hardware. For example, instead of having both a shower and a bath, you could invest in a shower bath. In addition to that, you might want to put a few shelves in the shower and think about installing built-in shelving next to the bathroom sink.

Lastly, if you do not want to make any drastic changes to your bathroom, you can put a few vertically stacked hanging baskets in the corner. They are especially useful if you have a small bathroom with limited shelving space. By making the most of every inch of space, you should be able to declutter your bathroom in no time!
