If you’ve got a big family, one area of the home that can cause problems is the bathroom. If your struggling to find homes for everyone’s lotions and potions, or have a small bathroom, read on for some creative space-saving bathroom hacks.
Tiered Storage Shelves
To ensure you’re utilizing all the space if your bathroom, you’ll want to opt for tiered storage. It’ll take up the same amount of space around your sink, yet you can triple or even quadruple the amount of storage. Depending on the number of people in your home, try to get a shelf for each person. That can you can keep your products separate and organized. You can get tiered shelves in a ton of different styles, so you’re bound to find something that matches your style.
Radiators in your bathroom are a godsend. Not only will they keep you warm when stepping out of a hot shower on a cool day, but you can also use them as a place to heart and dry your towels. Is there anything more heavenly than being wrapped in a toasty towel? To utilize space but still enjoy the perks of a radiator in your bathroom, consider installing small bathroom radiators. Smaller size radiators mean they can be easily installed on spaces of walls that are currently unused.
Most of us need a mirror in the bathroom, so consider opting for a medicine cabinet-style mirror. This way, you can enjoy the hidden storage behind. Medicine cabinet storage is perfect for smaller products you want to be able to have easy access to, as well as medicines and hygiene products. Having items hidden away keeps your bathroom looking clean and clutter-free.
When utilizing space in your bathroom, you’ll want to consider the wide range of mounted storage options available. If you’re lacking in square footage, you can use walls, ceiling space, and even behind the door to mount storage. Ceiling storage is a great option for items that you don’t use all the time, such as quest towels or extra loo rolls. If you’ve got empty wall space, you can add any shelf that works with your style. Shelves are a great place to keep trinkets and decorative pieces. This way, you can add character to your bathroom without using up any precious space. Lastly, the bathroom door is often under-utilized space. Consider adding hooks for towels or even a hanging storage solution.
Another way to ensure your bathroom space is working for you is to have regular clearouts. Do you have cupboards full of half-used products that didn’t quite work for you? Are you hoarding unwanted gift sets you were given for Christmas 3 years ago? Is all your skincare products still in date? Having a good clearout often ensures not only that you have more free space but also that you’re not using out-of-date products. If you have any items that are in-date and mostly un-used, consider using an app like Olio to pass them on to those who might need them. If products are unopened and unwanted, you can give them to your local charity shop or food bank. It gets them out of your way while helping your community.
