Take clutter out of the equation as you go about your daily routine, and see your bathroom space work more effectively with stylish storage solutions. Towels, toiletries and other essentials will be better organised with an investment into these clever (and chic) storage pieces.
WHAT BATHROOM STORAGE SOLUTIONS ARE AVAILABLE AT HABITAT?
There is a wide range of storage units with modern designs and space-saving abilities to keep your room pristine. Bathroom cabinets let you stash away all sorts and they’ll stop your everyday cosmetics becoming eye sores, cluttering up the place. And as space is often lacking in many bathrooms, mirrored cabinets give you a dual function storage option with an all-important looking glass.
When wall cabinets look too full or you want moreand products to hand, a corner bathroom cabinet can be a crucial addition. A corner unit with open shelving will also open up the room and make a cramped space feel roomier. You can store your day to day products down low so they’re painless to reach. Then have your cleaning products up a bit higher and all in the one place. They’ll be easy to find when the bathroom needs a once over. Adding the right unit also means more towels can come out from hiding, and you’ll always have a dry one on hand when you step out of the bath or shower.
If you just need a more effective way to dry them, a quality towel rail will speed up the process. They’ll ensure each one has enough room to dry up efficiently and let air circulate around better. These smartly designed rails will also let you store more towels at once. Same thing goes for wall hooks with multiple fixtures; they’ll break up crowds of towels and bathrobes into something far more organised.
WHAT SIZE AND MATERIAL CAN YOU CHOOSE FROM?
Wooden bathroom cabinets and other storage pieces are perfect for bathrooms. Exposed grains will add more texture and colour to a tiled space. As well as wood, bamboo (a type of resilient, fast-growing grass) is superb for bathrooms. After it’s processed, it develops a water-resistant surface and absorbs less moisture than many traditional woods. This super grass is also resistant to warping in the steam of bathrooms.
As with any room, measure where you want yourto go carefully. If you have a high ceiling, look at tall bathroom cabinets to make the most of it. Multiple tiers will make organisation a breeze and it’ll put your extra wall and ceiling space to work beautifully.
If there’s less space to work with, dual function pieces are your friend. There’s the classic small bathroom cabinet with a mirrored front, and you can make other space work doubly hard too. If there’s room above the toilet, fit some openfor organisational bliss. Take a glance under the sink to see if a little set of shelves can go under there as well. For freestanding units, always look at open shelving designs to create a greater sense of space in small rooms.
HOW CAN YOU COMPLETE THE LOOK IN YOUR BATHROOM?
Alongside letting you get a good look at yourself, bathroom will enhance light and add more volume to the room. Mirror cabinets in combination with a centrepiece design above the sink will have that light moving around at all angles to create a bright, refreshing feel. A freestanding mirror is also a superb option if there’s space, and look for designs that incorporate storage behind the glass. If there’s not much natural light available, look at fixing additional fittings above the sink so little details don’t go amiss.
Wood and other natural materials like bamboo are perfect for adding texture and warmth to a room. Different grains and colours also add character to a space, so feel free to mix and match different cabinets and storage pieces. And if your storage (wooden, bamboo or otherwise) is really on point and you have a blank spot in a bit of natural light, think about a bathroom plant. The humidity is perfect for some species to thrive and it’ll instantly add some colour and life to the space.
