Some of us are just not lucky enough to have massive master suite bathrooms with space for days! No, no, some of us have minuscule and absolute petite bathrooms in our master suites. When you have a small bathroom, storage can become an overbearing, and unbearable task to tackle. We know that there are so many folks out there that face small
bathroom storage dilemmas
. So we decided to let you in on some storage solutions for small bathrooms. Solutions that are sometimes staring you right in the face, but you just don’t see it.
Built-In’s, Built-In’s and more Built-In’s!
Most small bathrooms have small, unused little nooks and crevices that can make up all the difference to space with no storage! That space between your vanity and the
, which usually sits open, is the perfect spot to add an extra slim wall with a counter. On the top half of the counter and against the wall place a slim structured built in. On the bottom half, place a slim and custom built cupboard for the nasty things you don’t want on display all the time. These small slices of space are often lurking in all kinds of spots in the bathroom. Usually next to a bathtub, mirror or sink. Make use of this space!
Gone with the Medicine Cabinets!
Come on guys, if you don’t realize that medicine cabinets are space sucking creatures by know, then you haven’t experienced one! A medicine cabinet usually sticks out from the wall, taking up unnecessary space, that could be used in wiser and more space friendly way. Try installing a slender built-in unit that can rise between two mirrors. This allows you to keep your toiletries at hand but also doesn’t take up extra space. You could also opt for a shallow niche, which adds an even more minimalistic spin on the in-between-the-mirrors storage concept. This is another way of breaking up a wall to wall mirror.
Bed Board-Backed Shelves

. Not only will you have an ‘in reach’ spot for towels, bath salts, toiletries, and kids toys, but it will add a much needed focal point to an empty wall!
It’s important to remember that there is always ‘space for more space’! Small bathrooms are usually not designed well and lack a sense of functionality. However, all those small and unused spaces, are there for creative minds like you – to make use of! So, look for nooks, crevices and tiny spots that can get filled.
