First, bathrooms need storage space. Between linens, hair
products, hair dryers, curling irons and small items such as
make-up or jewelry, there’s a lot to store in what is
generally a smaller room. Often under-sink storage is crowded
with plumbing and mirror cabinets don’t provide much
in the way of organization. Placing an extra cabinet over the
toilet and using shelves with baskets and jars is an excellent
way to maximize your space. These items warm up a bathroom
filled wood materials and keep things convenient, clean and
If space permits, another excellent bathroom furniture choice
is a vanity area. This opens up sink space for other bathroom
users, and it creates a glamorous feel for the room. Vanities
can be built-in, but a unique wood piece adds a lot of personality.
Finish up the vanity area with great lighting and a pretty
yet comfortable chair or stool.
Since bathrooms are typically small, be creative to maximize
your space. Do your research on ready-made pieces that fit
around your toilet; look into corner shelves for unique space
and added storage; and consider shelving inserts and baskets
to increase the storage in your cabinets.
