Tips on Choosing Built-In Bathroom Storage

Today, there is a wealth of clever built-in bathroom storage ideas available to anyone looking to make the most of space in small bathrooms. This can be quite difficult, as many things are now fitted into a small bathroom.

Things such as shampoo containers, soap dispensers, and toothbrushes, among others, are typically placed on the storage shelves of bathrooms. It can be quite difficult to make the most of the limited space available and storage for these items is vital. So how do you make the most of the little space available?

There are several ideas and products available that are designed to save space in small bathrooms and make the most of what little bit is available. Built-in bathroom storage for small bathrooms can be done in a variety of ways.

Storage Units Stacked On Top Of Each Other

You can buy storage units that can be stacked on top of each other. These often come in a standard height of around 5cm and have a central double door, which is great for adding extra space for towels. Some of these units can be fitted with hooks or removable space-saving drawers, so you can keep towels within easy reach of the doors. In addition, there are also specially made baskets for drying towels and there is a range of specially designed bags available too which can be used to store extra hand towels.

A Set Of Shelves

Ever seen the storage solutions in a Surrey bathroom shop, or have you visited some of your area’s most popular bathroom showrooms? One of the most useful solutions for storage in small bathrooms is to buy a set of shelves. You can fit them easily into any small nook or space, and they can be very effective at making the most of space. Built-in shelves are available in a wide variety of materials, shapes, and sizes. It is worth looking around a little to decide what sort of material would suit your room best. Wood shelves can really help to add a touch of class to your bathroom, although other options such as fabric, plastic, or composite alternatives may also be a good choice.

Take Note Of The Wall Colour

When choosing built-in shelves, it is a good idea to match them to the colour of the walls. This means that if you have a light coloured wall, you should consider using white or cream shelves, and if you have a dark coloured wall, you should consider black or darker wood.

The Number Of Shelves To Get

It is also worth thinking about how many shelves you need and whether you want the essentials or extras. If you only need a few items of towels or toothpaste and toilet paper, you can get away with only a few shelves, but if you need plenty of storage space, it is worth spending a little extra to get a few extra shelves.

Built-In Baskets

Built-in baskets are also a great way of storing small accessories and hygiene products such as razors, shampoos, conditioners, and soaps. They can be placed against the wall or placed on a floor stand, making them very easy to access. Drawers for storage are usually located at the bottom of the basket, making it very convenient to use. There are many different types of baskets available including those that are built into the wall or attached to it.

Make sure that you choose a storage unit that blends in with the rest of the decor, as it will be a permanent fixture in your bathroom.
