Creating more storage space in the bathroom doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. If your bathroom is no longer working for your family, don’t break out the checkbook and sledgehammers just yet. With a little out-of-the-box thinking and a strategy in place, you can add an ample amount of space to your bathroom without even knocking down a wall. If you enjoy do-it-yourself projects, the following ideas from DIY Network will have you seeing space without breaking the bank.
Get organized. Your bathroom, like any room in your house, can spiral out of control if there isn’t some sort of organization system in place. Use items that you have lying around—think baskets, bins, shoe boxes—to house extra toiletries and any other items that need a home.
Make more space. If your bathroom’s current counter space is no longer working for you and your family, creating more space—without committing to a renovation—can be easily achieved through the installation of a ledge-style shelf. Not only will you gain more room, you won’t spend a lot of money and you don’t need to dedicate a lot of extra space.
Incorporate character. When looking for decorative items for the bathroom, look for things that will make the room a talking point. Unique accent pieces will keep your bathroom from looking like everyone else’s while providing a fun way for the family to come together to hunt for treasures.
Don’t be afraid to go vertical. Your bathroom most likely has ample wall space that’s being overlooked. If you’re out of storage space at ground level, it’s time to broaden your approach and integrate storage solutions on the walls. Shelves and baskets are two great ways to incorporate storage solutions into the bathroom, without utilizing your precious floor space.
