Choosing Storage Solutions For Your Bathroom. Bathroom Vanities And More

Jul 25, 2008
A bathroom is an essential room in your home, and when you're designing your bathroom, either because you're builiding a new one or else you're refurbishing, you need to think about bathroom storage.

You need to store many things in your bathroom often. Towels, bathmats, knick knacks, toiletries, medicines, makeup and lots more. So when designing your bathroom and choosing bathroom furniture you need to think about quite a few options for storage.

The first thing you need is a great bathroom vanity. A bathroom vanity is designed with storage in mind. It should house much of the stuff you need to store in your bathroom, and look good at the same time. A bathroom vanity is functional and necessary and should be the first thing you decide on when planning your bathroom.

However so many people rely solely on their vanity for their bathroom storage needs and fail to consider the other options for storing those essential bathroom items.

As well as a great vanity don't forget those small items of bathroom furniture that can help with storage requirements and also add features and function to your bathroom. For example the humble medicine cabinet. Modern medicine cabinets can look good, and come in a variety of different designs and timber colors and hues. They can be fixed to the wall of the bathroom in an appropriate location and can add value to your bathroom.

And a medicine cabinet can also have some particular uses. If you rely on your bathroom vanity to store your medicines that will work fine, until you have young children. Once the kids come along it's no longer good enough to store medicines at floor level. You need to consider safety, and having your medicines stored well above floor level so little fingers can't access them is essential. Either that or put a lock on your bathroom vanity unit so that the kids can't get in.

And there's lots of other options as well for adding storage space to your bathroom in addition to your vanity. Shelving is simple but effective, and can make use of open wall space that is often not used for other purposes. Well constructed shelving can add a lot of storage space. And as well as shelving consider over the toilet wall cabinets for all those essential toilet accessories that are best stored out of sight. And there are also dedicated wall cabinets that you can utilize as well.

And then there's floor space. Don't forget portable storage solutions for your bathroom. For example many people use their bathrooms for storage of items that they don't on display in their bedroom. Like dirty clothes. A wicker basket can be a fantastic way to store your dirty clothes in the bathroom. You can get great looking baskets, many with lids, that are ideal for clothes, and when it's time to do the washing you just pick up the basket and take the whole thing to the laundry.

So when you're designing your bathroom don't just think about that great bathroom vanity unit you've always wanted. Bathroom vanities are indespensible no doubt, and there are some great vanities around that do wonders for the look of your bathroom, but there are also many other bathroom storage options available that can be utilized to add storage value and good looks to your bathroom as well.
