How To Make More Storage Space in Your Bathroom
Most people will agree that you can never have enough storage space. And, in small rooms, like a bathroom, this is especially true. Here are some tips to help you maximize and create new storage space in your bathroom.
If you have more than one person using a bathroom, towels are always a problem. Where do you hang them to dry? Where do you store them? And, then, where do you store the washcloths? Add some company to the mix and you have towels hanging on every doorknob in the place. Next time you have company, try using the plastic holders from six-packs of canned drinks. You can hang them from the towel rack and use the rings for addition towel hanging space. Just pull a corner through the ring until it stays.
Still have that changing table from when your children were small? It can be used to store towels, toiletries, or whatever you need in the bathroom. The multiple storage drawers will make it perfect for sorting and storing in your bathroom. And, you will have a bit of additional counter-type space, as well.
With multiple people sharing a bathroom, keeping individual toiletries sorted can be a hassle. A simple way to solve this problem is to hang a shoe bag with multiple pockets on the back of the bathroom cabinet door. Use the pockets to hold each persons bathroom items and keep them sorted from everyone else's toiletries.
To organize and store all the metal items in your bathroom, use one of those magnetic knife holders from the kitchen. You can use this to hold nail clippers, razors, manicure scissors, nail files and anything else that is metal. Mount the rack behind the bathroom cabinet or closet door. It will be much easier to find these items than rooting around in several drawers.
If you have a bit of floor space that is unused, it is easy to make a small table to use as storage. Take a clean trash can and top it with a piece of round plexiglas or plastic that is a little larger than the top of the can. Put a table cloth over it and it is an instant table. You can use the can to store extra towels and the top will give you more counter space.
It is easy to create more storage space if you just use your imagination, and a few household items, as well. It is even better when the items required are already in your home or are easy to obtain and inexpensive. Hopefully, these tips will help you to create more and better storage space in your bathroom.
