While we did gain twice as much bedroom space by moving our master bedroom downstairs we did not gain anymore bathroom space.
In fact the size is about the same with way less storage.
This bathroom has no cabinets and had only one built in shelf. When we bought the house we hung a 2 tier metal shelf and called it a day. That worked great when this was a guest bathroom, however once we moved down here we had to figure out how we would store our hygiene related stuff.
Here are some ideas on how we keep our tiny bathroom organized with limited storage space.
1. The first thing we did after moving down here is installed two more shelves above the one that was already here. Before this I had never built a thing so I am pretty happy with the way the shelves turned out.
I used a clear plastic tray from the Dollar Tree for our toothpaste and toothbrushes. Our sink is a pedestal sink and there is nowhere to lay these items so having this nightstand here gave us some much needed counter space.
The tray works to protect the surface from water damage.
The glass that holds our toothbrushes is a small vase from Bath and Body works and the white bowl with my hair and bob pins is a Ramekin or bouillon bowls. — I know…I know…I’m a genius. 😀
I also a glass candy jar to hold cotton balls and a glass candy dish to hold my perfume.
4. Baskets are great for shelves especially when you want to conceal or group things. I use baskets to store personal hygiene items and extra toilet paper.
I also use them to conceal and store sanitary products.
This basket goes on the higher shelves until needed and then it’s moved to a lower shelf until it’s no longer needed. I check the inventory and refill it once a month.
Finally, I keep another basket beside my shower area to hold personal hygiene items used specifically in the shower. eg., shampoos, conditioner, body wash, razors.
