Don’t Forget about Storage When Remodeling Your Bathroom

Your bathroom renovation is a big undertaking and you want to make sure that you get it right the first time to avoid costly repairs or having to restart the entire project. As you begin to plan and prepare, do not forget to make plans for storage in your bathroom space. Too often, homeowners forget to consider storage options when remodeling the bathroom and then they are left without a place to put towels, shower supplies, and bathroom essentials.

Below, we will discuss some of the things you should consider when it comes to storage space and some of the ways you can incorporate storage into your bathroom renovation.

  1. Questions to Consider

As you think about the space you have now, think about who plans to use the bathroom, what size space you have to work with, and what items will be stored.

If you have a small space, you may want to choose a simple design, but make sure that you have closet space nearby to keep your towels in, otherwise, it will become an inconvenience to have to hunt them down every time you want to take a bath or shower.

  1. Use Your Walls

You should never be afraid to use your walls for storage space. For example, you could hang shelves higher up on the walls, you could line the walls vertically with shelving or cabinet options, and you can add an additional medicine cabinet as well.

Another great option is to have a bookcase or storage area built into the wall of the bathroom. This way, you do not have to sacrifice any space, but you still have additional room to place the things you need.

  1. Choose the Right Vanity

You should consider choosing a vanity that has a variety of storage options such as under the cabinet and drawers. If you have the space, stick with a larger vanity. You will thank yourself later on.

  1. In-Shower Storage

When it comes time to take a shower, who really wants to reach out into the cold air to find their shampoo or soap. To combat this and stop it from happening, work shower storage into your bathroom renovation.

There are many different options for the actual storage and you can choose to have shelves built into the walls of your shower stall or you can even have a small, waterproof bookcase added into the shower as well.

  1. Customize Your Bathroom

If you want to personalize your bathroom renovation as much as possible, consider choosing storage solutions that are customized. For example, if you choose to have vertical wall storage, consider having a pull out shelf with a hamper integrated into it, so that everyone can place their dirty towels and clothes into it.

Your bathroom renovation is a time to make your bathroom space useable and functional for you. You should consider all options available and then choose what works for you and your family. If you need help with your bathroom renovation, the team at Kitchen & Bath Inc. is always available to help.
