4 Modern Bathroom Storage Solution Ideas


Bathroom Storage

Keep your bathroom stylish, clean, and clutter-free!
Our top 4 modern bathroom storage solution ideas and life hacks
will help you to stay organized.

Give your bathroom an instant makeover, with tips for traditional vanities
with a twist to sleek medicine cabinets to spa-like open shelves and
attractive decorative accents.

Modern Bathroom Vanity

1. Customize vanities to match
your daily routine and lifestyle.

Bathroom vanities are a part of our everyday life, whether we're standing over them to brush our teeth or washing up before going to bed. It can be one of the most important fixtures in any modern bathroom, and should be personalized to meet your needs.

If you have a growing family, try converting a bottom drawer from your vanity into a pull-out stepstool for the kids. Measure and custom fit a solid piece of wood that can be attached to the top of the drawer edges; it can be sanded smooth and painted, or covered in your favourite wallpaper. You may need to remove a "toe-kick" to allow for clearance so your drawer can easily slide back in place.

Looking for more ways to save floor space? Adding floating vanity storage is just one of many options ,especially for small bathrooms. You can also maximize the storage you already have in your vanities and linen cabinets by adding pull-out shelf organizers to sort your toiletries and cleaning products, or to keep your laundry hamper at the ready.

Bathroom Medicine Cabinet

2. Make the most of medicine
to organize your
bathroom essentials.

If you don't have room for a bathroom vanity, medicine cabinets provide essential wall storage and come in a variety of designs that have evolved over the years from sterile to stylish.

Keep your medicine cabinet looking sleek both inside and out by ensuring it's stocked with most-used everyday personal items at the bottom and working upwards so that rare or occasional-use items are kept at the top.

Mirrored medicine cabinets help to create the illusion of expanded space, and can be used to add extra polish to your bathroom when installed inside your wall. If you want to add a recessed medicine cabinet, ensure that the area is clear from plumbing or electrical wires first.

For smaller DIY projects, add "pockets" for sharp objects on the back of your medicine cabinet door with layered and folded wallpaper, or paint it over in chalkboard or whiteboard paint so you have a space for notes and reminders. If you always find yourself looking for smaller items such as razor blades or floss, consider storing them in magnetic canisters and sticking them inside your cabinet or on a magnetic strip.

Bathroom Shelves

3. Use open bathroom shelves
to create your own spa retreat.

Your bathroom shelves can be functional and fashionable elements in your bathroom to store and showcase your favourite things.

Use them to openly mix items for eye appeal, such as flowers, colourful linens and towels, decorative canisters or jars, framed artwork or photos, tealight candles, or baskets.

When adding towels to shelves or linen cabinets, be sure to point the edges away from your view so the folded crease faces outward. You can also roll the towels and stack them on your shelves for a decorative flourish that fits in tight spaces.

Different shelves can also work best in specific locations. Add a ledge above your sink for your daily use, or mount shelf space above your doorway for extra toilet paper and other bathroom storage. If you have empty wall space behind your toilet, consider a tall storage cabinet for an attractive display.

Bathroom Storage Basket

4. Finish your bathroom's look
with decorative baskets and
glass accents.

Revitalize your bathroom with the power of accessories!

Decorative baskets and glass accents are a cost-effective way to give your powder room a facelift without installation or new furnishings.

Keep dirty towels and clothes out of sight with woven laundry baskets that bring natural warmth to your bathroom style.

If you have square or rectangular baskets, you can use them for more than tucking into a cubby hole or stacking neatly in a row; you can also attach their bottom or side panels against the wall to make your own floating shelf for additional towel storage.

Clear vases or canisters also serve a beautiful and practical purpose. Use them to hold cotton balls, swabs, and other toiletries within reach. Build your own eclectic collection of glass containers in a variety of colours, shapes, and sizes or complement minimalist décor by lining multiples of the same item in a row.
