Remember when that medicine cabinet behind the mirror was all the storage you needed?
You had a toothbrush, a bottle of aspirin, and maybe a razor. Granted, that mysterious medicine cabinet was always the source of temptation when you would visit a friend’s house. You hoped you would find a scandalous prescription or a mystery salve. Something to whisper about around the company water cooler. Of course, that was when companies had water coolers around which people would gather.
But, here we are in 2014 and the old medicine cabinet just isn’t sufficient.
Your bathroom remodeling needs to consider storage for all your stuff. And, let’s be honest… you have a lot of stuff. Enough medicine to rival a small clinic, hair brushes that are flat, round, and kinda curved. Tubes of things for your face, hair, and skin. Bottles of elixir. A collection corded gizmos and accessories. So, you do need a place for your stuff.
If you’re missing good bathroom storage, there are many things you can do, and the easiest thing is to make great use of wall space.
Any empty wall can easily accommodate a shelf that will help you with storage. Old fashioned pedestal sink can be fitted with a sink skirt to hide bathroom supplies. A simple Google search will come up with easy to sew instructions. Also think about the space on the sides and above the toilet. Inexpensive shelving units wrap this unused space in much needed storage and can make all the difference.
Ultimately, you want your bathroom to be easy to use and comfortable.
Older homes often do not have the extra storage space in bathrooms that we need today. There are many creative options you can do yourself. Alternatively, a company like ours does this kind of thing everyday and can show you bathroom remodel options you may not have ever thought of.
But, can we agree that we probably should stop snooping in people’s medicine cabinets? Good.
