No Longer Fancy Standard Wall-Mounted Bathroom Cabinets? Try These Creative Alternatives Instead

shares

Adequate storage is crucial to the success of any room, and the bathroom is no exception. But what if you no longer fancy the usual wall cabinet and vanity unit combination? If you’re hoping to add some character to your private sanctuary, check out these quirky storage ideas for a bathroom that’s both functional and full of personality.

Step up

Typically, we see ladders being used for hard-to-reach places, but they can also serve as a visually interesting storage fixture in your bathroom. Whether in monochromatic shades or striking bold hues, choose a finish that matches your interior style; and then style it by interspersing toiletries with a few decorative items in-between for a more aesthetically pleasing look. What’s more, their slanted design ensures they don’t encroach on too much of your bathroom’s floor area no matter where you place it.

Repurpose a chest of drawers

In possession of a tired dresser that’s soon to be making its way to the recycling centre? Well, why not get creative and repurpose it into a storage unit for the bathroom? Perfect for private sanctuaries that have a larger space, an upcycling project like this can transform your bathroom from a purely functional space into a cosy sanctuary that boasts plenty of character and charm.

Get wired

If you’re working with a bathroom that has a limited space, think about ways you can incorporate storage units that don’t take up too much room. One such option is a wall-mounted wire shelving unit. As they are not as bulky as a cabinet, these fittings are ideal for toiletries that are most commonly used near the basin – from toothbrushes to body lotions to hand soaps. Additionally, the open design of these shelves allow for decorative items to be hung on them as well, which is a great way to add character to and brighten up your bathroom.
