5 Shelving Ideas for Your Edmonton Bathroom

Shelving ideas for your bathroom

Have you run out of room for storage in your small bathroom? If so, you can create more with innovative storage solutions in Edmonton. Professional handypeople know how to optimize every inch of space, ensuring you can safely store all your toiletries, towels and cleaning supplies. In fact, here are some of the best storage tips for small bathrooms.

Utilize Vertical Space With Over-the-Door Storage

The back of your bathroom door has lots of storage potential — all you need to harness it is the right equipment. For example, you can hang loofahs, robes and towels from hooks. Additionally, over-the-door shelves provide the perfect place for shampoo, conditioner and even decorative items such as orchids.

Should you need even more storage space, you can use an over-the-door plastic shoe organizer. The roomy pockets are excellent for brushes and toiletries. Since they’re plastic, you don’t have to worry about them absorbing moisture — though it’s a good idea to wipe them down with cleaner every so often, just as you would a shower curtain.

If you have a shower door, you can also utilize it for storage. An organizer inside the shower allows easy access to hair care products and soap without cluttering the shower ledges.

Store Items Above the Door

There’s plenty of space between the top of the door and the ceiling, so why not utilize it? If you have a shelf installed over the door, you can have extra towels on hand for guests. It’s also an excellent place for paper towels, toilet paper and other lightweight items.

Depending on the size of your bathroom, you can also install shelves on either side of the door frame. Doing so provides useful nooks for knickknacks, toiletries and even a magazine or two.

Keep Extra Towels Over the Toilet

If storing items above the door isn’t an option, there’s always space over the toilet. A contractor can custom-build an over-the-toilet cabinet to house cleaning supplies, washcloths and toiletries. Open shelving shows what’s available, while doors keep contents safe from humidity. You can also choose your preferred material:

  • Metal
  • Wood
  • Plastic

If you love the look of natural wood but want something environmentally friendly, bamboo is an excellent option. It’s as sturdy and gorgeous as wood but grows faster, ensuring its harvest doesn’t cause deforestation.

Put Cleaning Supplies Under the Sink

Under-sink cabinets are a common storage place, but you can get more out of this space with the help of a handyperson. For example, your contractor can install a Lazy Susan so you can always reach the item you need. You may also consider rolling shelves, allowing you to access supplies without crouching.

There are also small over-the-door organizers that fit sink cabinets perfectly. These racks keep everyday items separate so that you don’t have to waste time looking for them.

If your needs change often, you can try a modular storage rack. The shelving can be adjusted, allowing you to create more space as necessary.

Stow Toiletries on Open Shelves

Open shelving is an excellent option for any small room, as it offers storage without taking up too much space. You can place open shelves practically anywhere in a bathroom:

  • Above the toilet
  • Next to the vanity
  • Above towel racks

Your contractor can help you find the right place to maximize storage without making the area feel cluttered.
