Bathroom Shelves – Convenient Shelving Options
Not every bathroom has the room for elaborate cabinetry, especially guest bathrooms. However that doesn’t mean all hope is lost for your bathroom redesign. If you’re looking for
that fit perfectly in your bathroom without taking up too much space, you need to start looking at free-standing, wall-mounted, and corner bathroom shelf units.
Bathroom shelf units are the perfect alternative to installing built-in shelving. These bathroom shelving units are smaller in size, often rest on the floor or can be mounted on the wall, and often have multiple layers and drawers built into them. Bathroom shelf units come in many different styles and designs. If you’re looking for bathroom shelves that will accent your bathroom’s look, a glass unit will do the trick. If you’re looking for something with a bit more character, a wood unit will give your bathroom the solid foundation it needs.
Selecting Your Bathroom Shelves
Bathroom shelving units come in different sizes, shapes, makes, and colors. So you want to make sure you pick one that matches your bathroom’s décor and fits in the space you have available. The reason you’re opting for a shelving unit instead of built-in shelves is because of space constraints. So measure the space you have and find a unit that fits within those dimensions. If you’re opting for a wall-mounted unit, make sure the wall area can handle the weight of the shelf unit. Make sure there are studs in the wall area to properly secure the unit. If there aren’t, try and find a different, more appropriate location for the wall unit or see if a free-standing unit would be more appropriate.
Combining Bathroom Shelves with Your Vanity
For larger bathrooms, it may be feasible to incorporate a bathroom shelving unit along with your
. Depending on the available space and amount of storage you need, a separate shelving unit is a perfect way to display bathroom knick-knacks such as candles, clocks, pictures, etc. Bathroom vanities tend to be more utilitarian and not the safest place for delicate items such as pictures, music boxes, and other fragile items often found in bathrooms. Placing such items on a vanity top can expose these items to water splashing from the sink. Bathroom shelving units also create added space for additional storage. You’ll be surprised how quickly you can run out of room in a bathroom.
Bathroom shelves add space and usability to your bathroom. A simple shelving unit can create spaces for bric-a-brac, added storage, and give your bathroom the look of elegance it needs to perk up its drab appearance. So if you’re looking for a quick solution to changing up your bathroom’s design without spending thousands on a renovation, bathroom shelves are your solution.
