Space savers for bathroom

Pooja Khanna Tyagi

If you have a small bathroom, it is essential to create a well-organised layout which has provision for the storage of toiletries and other essentials. Here are some features which can be incorporated within the decor of the bathroom to create a highly functional and aesthetically pleasing space:

Mirror with cabinet

These units comprise a mirror unit with narrow storage. A great way to keep the clutter out of sight, the cabinets, also called medicine cabinet, can be used to store essential bathroom items, medicines and toiletries.

Wet and dry zones

Strategically divide the bathroom into a wet and dry area with a shower curtain. You can also create a walk-in shower area with a frameless glass partition as it provides an unobstructed view. It also lets light pass and gives the bathroom a visually larger look.

Floating vanity

Consider a floating vanity which incorporates a cabinet below the sink as it clears the floors space and makes the bathroom appear bigger. If there is a space constraint, install a pedestal sink or corner sink.

Wall-mounted commode

Make provision for a wall-mounted commode, instead of a floor-mounted one, as it takes lesser space and imparts a sleeker look.

Sliding doors

If the bathroom is tight on space, go for a sliding door or pocket door so that you can make use of precious floor space. Alternately you can open the bathroom swing door in the outward direction instead of opening it inwards.

Door-mounted rods

If there is no space to hang towel rods on the bathroom walls, install these on the back of the door but make sure that the depth of the towel rod is not more than that of the door knob. One can also screw a towel hook behind the door.

Corner shelves

Make optimum use of the bathroom corners by installing corner shelves. These can be efficiently used for storing and displaying toiletries.

Vertical storage

Make maximum use of the vertical space by making provision for open or closed storage above the bathroom door so that it is out of sight and does not look imposing. Incorporate built-in storage within the bathroom niches and install sleek floating shelves on the walls.
