Designers Offer Tips for Maximizing Bath Storage

Bathrooms are quickly catching up to kitchens when it comes to storage needs. In a world where toilet paper is sold in mega-roll packages, shampoo and conditioner are sold by the gallon and vitamin bottles contain enough product to last for months, bath storage has become a greater concern for many homeowners.

Storage needs are stretched even further as many homeowners decide to charge electronic items, such as smart phones and tablets, in the bath, while others seek to add ‘luxury’ items such as beverage centers, coffee makers, mini refrigerators, and even microwaves, all of which can make the morning routine easier – and medicine storage more efficient.

And this laundry list of products doesn’t even take into consideration the basics such as towels and washcloths, or the fact that some bathrooms are called upon to do more than store just the typical bath items.

At the same time, homeowners want to keep the space neat and uncluttered – no toothbrushes left out on the counter or curling iron cords tangled in a drawer.

This month, KBDN spoke with designers about how they’re getting creative with bath storage to help their clients maximize space and minimize clutter.
