If you have a small bathroom, you might find that storage is a bit of a problem. However, there are a few ways to make good use of the space that you have. The best thing that you can do is to work with what you have, rather than knocking down a wall or pulling everything out and starting from scratch.
We’ve all seen articles and videos about what to do if you have a small bedroom. However, knowing what to do with a small bathroom can be difficult. Don’t worry, you will find some tips below that could prove to be very useful:
Add Storage Under Your Sink
If you’re stuck for space, you could add some storage under your sink. Add a cupboard or a few shelves. If you want to indulge in a bit of DIY, you should make sure you have all the right tools. You will need plenty of wood, screws, a screwdriver, and some glue. Make sure you how to use it correctly. If you wish to add doors, be sure that there’s enough space for you to bend over and open the doors. If you don’t have enough space, shelves will suffice.
Create Shelving Above the Toilet
Not a lot of people consider adding shelving above their toilet. However, left unused, you’ll be missing out on some good storage options. Why not add some shelving just about the toilet? It doesn’t need to be very wide, just wide enough for you to keep a few of your toiletries on. Make sure all of the shelves are sufficiently wide apart so you can keep spare bottles of shampoo and deodorant on them. This will make your shelving even more convenient to have.
Make Sure you Have a Lot of Light
Small bathrooms can look quite dark, here is where you can use bathroom lighting to your advantage. You don’t need an enormous amount of lighting, you can simply use a bathroom-approved LED bulb that can help to keep the room bright. But what does this have to do with storage? Let me explain. When you add storage, you need to consider how it will affect the light. Add some light-colored storage so that light bounces off it. By doing this, you’re helping to make your small bathroom look bigger.
Add a Towel Bar to Your Door
When you have very little space, placing a towel bar on your door can make a lot of difference. We all know how large bath towels can be. Therefore, having a place to hang one or two, as well as a hand towel, can really help. You might need to store the rest of your bath towels elsewhere, but hopefully, you already have space for them in your bathroom.
It really is possible for you to make good use of a small bathroom. With a bit of work, you too could find that you can store almost everything you need without having a lot of clutter everywhere.
