Addressing Your Lack of Stowing Space
Besides bathroom vanities and medicine cabinets, even traditionally small baths can benefit from a fresh intake of washroom furniture for storage and display. A mix of open and closed storage, free standing and anchored fittings makes a bath seem less closed-in and more robust and inviting. Recessed storage furniture is always a good choice for those with limited floor space.
Another alternative for your lavatory fixtures would be to stack up a storage tower with closed drawers, open shelves for colorful towels and possibly some pantry pull-outs. Depending upon the size of the room, bath furniture can even be used as a room divider.
Waterproof Durability vs Price
When purchasing commercially made storage units, be mindful of cheap laminates, while these may be easy to clean, they are invariably vulnerable to moisture damage which could result in peeling and warping of your fittings.
Also if your cabinets use glass, make sure it’s tempered safety glass for added resilience. And don’t forget, most of this lavatory furniture is made of wood so proper bathroom ventilation ensures your washroom furnishings stays dry and pristine.
Inventive Ways to Stow Away Your Accessories
Floating wall mounted open shelving units in the master bath is a growing trend in bath fittings and adds clean, simple display shelves enhancing the serenity of your home spa. However, not all bath wall storage systems need to stand against a wall.
Another novel idea for the master bath is the use of your furniture storage unit as a room divider, perhaps creating a partially hidden enclave for your bathtub, offering a sense of privacy and quietude from the rest of the room. This novel room divider can be short, tall or narrow and can be free standing for quick remodeling or anchored to the floor, wall or ceiling for a more permanent stowaway solution.
Having Enough Compartments to Meet Your Needs
For added organization, this piece of bathroom furniture can be double sided with filing compartments on either side of the unit. And if you really want to optimize your ability to arrange your accessories, you can even have display niches at the end of the cabinet unit. Take into consideration whether you want your fitting to blend in with your bath surroundings or perhaps stand out as an attractive center piece.
If you choose your room divider to be the center of attraction then a good idea is to mix the display up a little by perhaps staggering sizes and shapes of the shelves and drawers, adding frosted windows or even incorporating built-in accent lighting to your retention wall.
Determining Which Retaining System is Best for You
Different types of storage solutions include: armories, bookcases, hutches, chests, cupboards and modular wall systems. These products can be used individually or in groupings to meet your display and filing prerequisites in your bathroom.
The good part about these ready-made storage units is that they can be bought on short notice, so you usually don’t have to wait to purchase them unless you get custom furniture designed by a woodworking professional like a carpenter or cabinet maker.
The only con of these stand-alone shelving units is that they are not as flexible as modular wall systems mainly because they are normally made to well “stand alone” and not in conjunction with other fixtures but all in all if put together correctly they can more than meet your storing needs.
Safekeeping Your Items by Converting Everyday Furniture
When it comes to bath furniture, bookcases are for the budget conscious, easily put anywhere, come in various shapes and sizes, shelves can be easily adjusted, and generally offer you the most flexibility in styling and finishes.
Armories are tall roomy cupboards with doors and on occasion have drawers. Because the doors close, you can conveniently store bathrobes, towels, linens, toiletries and other bath accessories neatly tucked away from prying eyes to keep your bathroom looking uncluttered.
Organize and Declutter
The great thing about hutches and other wood cabinets is that they come in an incredible variety of shapes and sizes to fit just about anyone’s storage needs. With an ample supply of chest of drawers, this storage furniture can just as easily store your bath necessities or become a display for your pretty glass jars filled with soaps, cotton balls, body scrubbers, shampoos, lotions and bath salts to declutter your grooming space.
And while bath fittings like: trunks, chests and china cabinets may not be your conventional units for holding toiletries, they may be able to aid you in your quest for the perfect storage answer for your bathroom.
