Spotlight: Your Organized Bathroom- Top 5 Professional Takeaways

A recent article from Kitchen & Bath Design News magazine says that, “Adequately addressing storage requirements can enhance the aesthetics of a master bathroom”, and we couldn’t agree more. It’s essential to consider your storage needs when designing a bathroom, particularly a master bathroom, that houses more items than a hall bath or powder room. Incorporating plenty of concealed and convenient storage features ensures that the bathroom always looks neat and tidy allowing the true beauty of the space to shine.

Incorporating deep drawers into vanity cabinetry increases storage space dramatically.

1. Vanity Cabinetry –

Pedestal and console sinks are beautiful in their simplicity – however they don’t provide any storage. Unless you have a large linen closet to store toiletries and towels, vanity cabinetry is necessary. We often incorporate deep drawers in vanity cabinetry to provide maximum usable storage.

2. Towel Storage –

Another important consideration is where towels will be stored. Incorporating open shelving can keep towels easily accessible, or bringing in unique furniture pieces like a freestanding glass armoire can work as well.

3. Drawer Organization –

There are many organizational features for drawers available such as built-in compartments or removable organizers. Consider adding outlets in the vanity drawer so hair tools and trimmers can remain plugged in and ready to go at all times, yet easily concealed when not in use.

Niches are a great way to store bottles of shampoo and soap within the shower. Not only are they functional, but they also provide the opportunity to incorporate accent tile as a focal point. Who knew storage could be so beautiful?

Making use of the vertical space in your bath can be accomplished using tower style cabinetry.

5. Tower Cabinets –

Tall, tower style cabinetry can help a bathroom that lacks storage or one that might be tight on space. Taking advantage of the vertical space in a room with a small footprint is highly efficient.
