Here’s where storage was added to this bathroom. Some improvements were inexpensive and simple, while others work best when designed into a bath remodeling project.
Keep soaps, sponges, hair-care products, and other shower essentials off the floor and at the ready with a built-in shower niche (#469303).
When placing hooks, bars, and rings for towels, think about user convenience. Aim for two hooks (#68608) next to the shower, plus at least one ring and one bar for each vanity.
Revive a bench with paint and new upholstery to play off your bath’s color palette. Then place it near the tub or shower as a perch and storage spot. The open space below the bench is great for a bin (#8432) full of extra bath supplies.
This sturdy, easy-to-make bath caddy spans the tub and is a handy and safe spot to keep a book, bath supplies, or any pampering pretties while you soak. Paint the caddy to coordinate with the walls or to add a pop of color.
Maximize existing closet space by making L-shape shelves for linens, grooming products, and cleaning supplies. Bars on the inside of the door hold towels. Containers with character -- a wire basket, an antique bottle carrier, bowls, and canisters -- add style. Painted corbels serve as shelf dividers.
Keep jewelry tangle-free, easy to see, and always accessible by using curtain or shower rings (#337812) on a towel rod (#68562).
This easy-to-make organizer fits into a vanity drawer. It provides lots of storage options for smaller items, such as makeup and grooming gear.
A removable upper tray comes with this vanity drawer (#444577), adding an optional second level of storage when needed. The tray fits on top of the drawer’s built-in rails. Below the tray, unused metal paint cans (#27318) hold hot items, like a hairdryer and flat iron.
