Storage Solutions for the Bathroom


One of the biggest problems we all face in our bathrooms is the lack of storage space. Without adequate storage the bathroom can quickly become a messy place and when you have guests arriving and you want to keep your bathroom neat and tidy, there is only one solution – get more storage.

There are a number of options when looking for a storage solution for your bathroom. You can choose a vanity unit, a cupboard or even mirror cabinets with lights.

Vanity Units

Vanity units are a popular choice in many bathrooms these days, the majority of these units incorporate a basin which means they not only offer adequate storage, but they help save space at the same time.

Vanities come with single or double door designs and it’s easy to find one that blends in with your overall bathroom style. From those with a draw and cupboard to those with two cupboard and ample drawers, they all offer adequate storage for any bathroom environment.

The great thing about the vanity units is that they come in a choice of colours and materials, so you can find the right one to blend in with your other bathroom items.

Cupboards

There are a number of cupboards available for the bathroom environment, those you mount on the wall offering plenty of storage for all your toiletries, hair care products, shaving items and make up. These cupboards are stylish in design and a top choice if you have the space available.

Mirror Cabinets with Lights

If you are looking for a functional item that also offers convenience and storage, then you may want to look at mirror cabinets with lights. These items are mounted on the wall and offer you the advantage of storage for all your smaller bathroom items, a mirror and additional lighting, which is a huge advantage in any bathroom.

The mirror cabinets with lights are available in a choice of shapes and designs, so you can easily find the right one for your bathroom. Another advantage is the additional lighting ensures you have a clear reflection every time and the convenience of having your items within easy reach of the mirror can save you valuable time when getting ready in the mornings.

Ways To Reduce Your Bathroom Clutter


One of the biggest things we struggle with in our bathrooms is the clutter. What I am talking about is mess, have you noticed how a bathroom can become messy within minutes, toiletries everywhere, shaving items and even hair care products?

While a messy bathroom isn’t dirty, the mess ruins the entire look of a bathroom and can leave you running around in a panic if a guest arrives at your door unexpectedly. I personally hate clutter in the bathroom, I have worked hard to design my bathroom into a modern oasis with plenty of glass, chrome and light colours and towels lying everywhere, medicines left on the edge of the basin and make up left on the window sill is not my idea of a perfect bathroom space.

Bathroom Cabinets

One of the ways to reduce the clutter is to consider bathroom cabinets that can hang on the wall above or next to your basin. These are ideal for the smaller bathroom items such as medicines, some toiletries, make up and shaving items, but they are not suitable for the larger items such as your clean towels, shampoos and conditioners.

Placing a mirrored cabinet on the wall can immediately offer you some storage along with a practical and functional mirror which can assist to bounce natural light into the room helping achieve the sense of space.

Vanity Units

Vanity units are such a practical bathroom product that includes ample storage combined with your basin. The advantage to this is that you maximise your floor space while reducing the clutter, it doesn’t get any better than that.

Personally I prefer the wall hung vanity units which make cleaning so much easier. These units hang on the wall, which really assists with the feeling of space and makes the bathroom look stylish with a floating cupboard.

With the choices available you can include a wall hung vanity unit into the smallest cloakroom or into the most spacious of bathrooms. There are single door units, double door units and those with drawers rather than cupboards, all offers ample storage for your clean towels, toiletries and so much more.

The fact that the wall hung vanity unit is available in a choice of colours is a big bonus. If you are looking for that modern and minimalist design, the white gloss works beautifully, but if you want to make a statement and add a splash of colour or texture these units come in black and light oak, just what you need to compliment the space.

Spectacular Glass Bathroom Basins


What are the three things you want in your bathroom besides the obvious toilet, basin and shower? I can tell you the three things I want is light, space and style. Combining these three things into any bathroom whether they are large or small, can turn your bathroom into a spectacular masterpieces.

Light

Natural light is the best light any home can benefit from. Though we aren’t all lucky enough to have natural light flooding into our homes, especially into our bathrooms. Light in the bathroom gives the bathroom a spacious feel, so if you can you want to capture as much light as you can and keep it in the bathroom, brightening the space and making the room feel bigger than it is.

When it comes to light you can add stylish lighting, mirrors and glass bathroom basins. The basins don’t block any of the light in the room, they are there completely see through, offering a very bright and spacious look to any bathroom.

Space

How many times have you said “if only I had a spacious bathroom.” I think everyone wants a spacious bathroom, a space where you can relax and unwind in a hot bath and a place you can move around in.

We are not all lucky enough to have spacious bathrooms, in fact the majority of bathrooms are small and compact. The smaller the homes are built, the smaller the bathrooms get. This just means that you need to be creative when decorating and designing your bathroom.

Glass basins are a fantastic feature in any compact bathroom. They give the feeling of space by allowing the light to flow straight through them. Of course they are also modern in design, which is an added bonus.

Style

As I said before there are three things I want in my bathroom, the first two were light and space. But it is important for me to have a stylish bathroom. The bathroom is my oasis, a place to relax when the children have gone to bed. I can lie back in my bath and soak my stress away.

While lying in the bath I want my bathroom to be a stylish and welcoming room and glass bathroom basins help achieve this. They are very modern and stylish in design and are a welcome to any bathroom design, complementing the area while enhancing any natural light that comes into the room.

You don’t have to be an interior designer to plan the perfect bathroom. Wall hung vanity basins are the perfect way to add sophistication and style to any bathroom design.

Where to Start

When choosing wall hung vanity basins for your bathroom, your starting point should be measuring the area you have available for the unit. Choosing the unit too big or too small will leave your bathroom looking either cluttered or very sparce, both of which you need to avoid.

Once measured you will have an idea of the wall space you have to work with and you can then choose your wall hung vanity basins according to that size. Now while this may sound obvious, I have seen some real disasters when it comes to adding these units into a bathroom. They are such a wonderful and stylish option and will complement any bathroom, but if they are chosen wrong or the wrong size is installed, they can ruin the feel of the room rather than give it that modern flair we all want to achieve.

Design

Your decision for wall hung vanity basins should be based on your current bathroom design and layout. You may be only replacing the basin and vanity and leaving your other bathroom amenities in place, so you need to ensure that any choice you make works with what you currently have in your bathroom.

The wall hung vanity basins are the perfect choice for compact bathrooms as the vanity unit below is the size of the basin, this means you don’t compromise your floor space and still get to give your bathroom a stylish design.

Your colour choice should also be based on your current bathroom design, these wall hung vanity basins come in stylish white and stunning light oak, both will complement a bathroom and being light colours they will help make the area feel spacious and light. You need to match the colour to your current bathroom. If you have an oak door in your bathroom or oak beams, then the oak option is the ideal choice. Sometimes the oak options work well in an all white bathroom, where they can offer some colour and texture to the room.
