Keep your bathroom looking sharp with 10 great-looking storage ideas.
Under-sink storage doesn’t always have to be behind closed doors. Expose how stylish your storage is with cute wicker baskets in various sizes.
Who says storage has to be in certain places? Designer Mary Broerman not only employed standard under-sink cabinetry, she also took advantage of the vertical space by adding recessed medicine cabinets in either end wall.
This master bathroom, designed by Candice Olson, features several varieties of storage options. There’s a basket for linens underneath the sink, a clever shelf in front of the mirror, a floor-to-ceiling armoire and on-the-wall towel racks.
One way to create space for linens and other supplies is by affixing a table skirt to a vanity sink.
Not only does this bathroom boast plenty of under-sink storage, but there are also matching recessed cabinets on either side of the mirror.
Designer Erinn Valencich maximizes wall space in this bathroom by placing a floating shelf beneath a sleek sconce.
The slender shelves surrounding the sink in this bathroom provide ample storage space both on top as well as with pegs underneath. An added bonus is the oversized sink, which can be used by multiple people if need be.
Get creative with good old-fashioned counter space by scattering decorative baskets and containers about. Throw in personal items such as a photo or two as well.
If your bathroom is large enough, consider storing (and using, of course) your workout equipment in it, as designer Candice Olson did in this one.
Designer Sue Adams created cleverly disguised storage space with two recessed medicine cabinets hung over each Carrera marble sink console. Small glass shelves beneath each sink provide an additional area for housing toiletries.
