Organizing Small Bathrooms

Organizing Small Bathrooms

How is that one of the busiest rooms in your home was designed to be so — small? Bathrooms never have enough storage, it seems. There are a lot of items that live there, each important, each taking up space, and multiplying with each family member. From towels to toilet paper, shampoo to shaving cream – it’s all necessary. But where does it all go?

When you’re dealing with standard bathroom layouts, space really is limited. Countertops fill up quickly, and cabinets – well, are there ever enough? Smart organizing is the way to win the war against clutter.

There are some reliable ways to squeeze out more space in a cramped bathroom. First on the list:

Organizing Small Bathrooms

Take a tip from the last motel you visited: Roll your towels! Not only will they look more presentable – it saves space. If you’re lucky enough to have some open shelving, this can make your linens attractive enough to keep them on view!
If your towel collection ranges from nice to “We use that to dry off the dog”, it’s probably time to split them up. Place your guest-worthy linens on display or in a basket, and tuck the hard-working ones away on a lower shelf. You’ll be doing this because you need to:

Make Popular Items Easy to Reach

If you’re keeping daily-use items on awkward lower shelves, you’re not using your storage well. Keep things like blow dryers, toiletries, and tissues where you can easily see them and pick them up – not behind bigger items. If you haven’t had the heart to go through all the things hiding at the back of your vanity – it’s time. Now, group all your frequently-used items. You’ll need to see how much room should be in your:

Start whipping your shelf space into shape with open baskets. When you’re picking them out, make sure that they’re easy to reach into, as well as to pick up and move. (Handles are important!)

Baskets are the perfect way to move your toiletries back and forth. If you need to quickly clean up, they’re easy to put away. If you’re sharing a bathroom with other family members, assign everyone a basket. They even keep your cabinets looking tidy!

When It’s Time to Get Professional Help

When the need for a better-organized bathroom has gone beyond rolling up towels, reorganizing shelves, and ruthless paring down of your toiletries, it’s time to talk to a contractor. Storage solutions are not what they used to be! There are amazing ways to organize every last bit of your bathroom while you transform its looks.

For example, this homeowner added a new vanity in this guest bathroom. The new configuration added more drawers and expanded the counter space.

Adding a linen cabinet to their new vanity gave these homeowners deep storage shelves, more drawers, and completely decluttered their bathroom.

Behind the doors, there’s some magic going on, too. Cabinet makers like Bertch have added some amazing innovations, like concealed drawers, under-sink pull-outs, hair appliance organizers, and even laundry hampers – all neatly tucked away out of sight.
