Just because your bathroom is small doesn’t mean you have to get rid of all your toiletries. The truth is, even a small bathroom can be big on storage space — with a little creativity. Do you have a little bathroom where you’re finding it a challenge to know where to place toiletries and other bath products? If so, here’s one often-underutilized area to think about: your walls.
Believe it or not, there are lots of innovative wall storage ideas available today that can help turn your bathroom walls into smart storage. To demonstrate that, here’s a look at three great bathroom wall cabinet ideas that can help increase storage square footage, even in a small space.
Built into the wall, a medicine cabinet creates storage without taking away any of a small bathroom’s space. Plus, because it’s right above the vanity, it’s an easy-access area for storing items such as toothpaste, floss, soap and other products you want to use at the sink. Simply swing open the mirror and grab what you need.
If you already have a medicine cabinet, you can make even more use of it with some smart storage hacks. For example, mount a magnetic memo board on the back of the cabinet door to hold metal items such as bobby pins, nail clippers, etc., and get some magnetic caddies that can house other toiletries.
Floating Vanity Cabinets
Floating vanities are great for small bathroom spaces, as they mount to the wall instead of the floor. Simply having that bit of visible flooring beneath the vanity can do a lot for the visual space. A floating vanity often makes a bathroom feel much larger! At the same time, like traditional vanities, floating vanities usually include cabinets in which you can store paper products and toiletries. Because of their location around the plumbing fixtures, sometimes the cabinetry in a floating vanity space can be awkward, but if you learn to work with it, you gain additional storage.
Other Wall-Mounted Cabinets
In addition to the wall cabinet ideas listed above, there are many other types of wall-mounted cabinets and storage solutions — from basket shelves to over-the-toilet floating shelves. You could hang a towel rack on the shower door to keep towels accessible without wasting space. You could mount shelves, a storage unit or even a narrow ledge to house bathroom essentials such as washcloths, lotion, etc. Explore the possibilities to see what works for you!
As the above ideas demonstrate, there are lots of ways to improve storage in your bathroom, even in small spaces. Ready to upgrade your bathroom storage with some new cabinets or other fixtures?
