Utilizing cabinet and countertop surfaces is extremely important in the kitchen, but one area where these spaces hold even more priority is the bathroom. From master baths to guest locations, having enough places to store everything associated with both locations is critical in order to keep things tidy. If you don’t have specific places to store certain items then the countertop can quickly become a catch-all area for storing everything from hair dryers to toilet paper. Instead, proper design or a potential remodel could assist in creating some new ideas for storage options or expand upon any currently available opportunities.
Bathroom design trends continue to evolve, but many of the latest options mirror timeless classics from the past. While materials may change, such as natural stone countertops, implementation of all the latest trends and color schemes are made to last well into the future. Despite the design changes, space is always a concern, but there are certain cabinet styles and other options for homeowners to make the most out of their bathroom.
Overlay vs. Inset Design
Choosing an overlay style of cabinet, either partial or full, tends to open up a little more space within the cabinets. Inset designs may contain a more sleek look but if it’s space you’re after then gain additional area with the overlay designs.
Medicine cabinets, the few shelves of pills and cotton balls hidden by a mirror above the sink, are commonplace in many bathrooms. However, instead of just using this space for its namesake, consider storing other traditional bathroom items behind the mirror too. Toothbrushes, razors, toothpaste, shaving cream, and many other bathroom friendly items will usually fit.
Another item to consider if you’re running low on cabinet space is the implementation of open shelving. Adding some cabinetry to your walls without the doors still opens up more areas for things to be stored or decorative displays. Help free up the countertop with this design option.
The versatility of flat or slab-style cabinetry may not necessarily free up more storage area inside but the design does portray a larger feel overall. The in-line and sleek design of this option can give the outer appearance of a bathroom a more open look to both homeowners and guests.
