5 Ways to Maximize Your Bathroom Storage

Posted by Ben Thompson on 08.9.16

How would you rate your bathroom storage capacity? Do you have enough room for all of your toiletries, grooming tools, toilet paper, and towels? Most Grand Rapids homeowners feel their bathrooms are lacking in the storage department. It’s one of the main problems we work to solve when creating a bathroom design for our clients. Even though we are working with some of the smallest spaces in the home, our design team knows how to maximize every inch to accommodate each homeowner’s storage needs.

To demonstrate some of the ways you can get more storage in your bath, we’ll share some photos of recent projects we’ve completed.

Select a vanity with drawers

Incorporate built-in shelves

Include a tower cabinet

Add floating shelves
