bathroom shelvesFinding plenty of storage space for your bathroom can seem like a difficult process even if you have a large, luxurious bathroom. Consider all the toiletries you own such as makeup, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoos, conditioners and more. Finding ample storage space for these items while maintaining a clean  bathroom is actually more challenging than you think.

Stacked Shelves By adding shelving yourself or purchasing matching cabinetry, you can make your bathroom even more gorgeous while adding necessary storage space. You could add shelving above one another so the shelves looked stacked (think of it like a bookcase). This way you can use mostly    wall space to store your belongings. Place your toiletries in wicker baskets and use white-washed wood or maple wood for a rustic feel. Shelf Above the Toilet There’s almost always plenty of wall space above the toilet. Whether you want to add  floating shelfs  or a metal type stand behind the toilet, there are plenty of options on the market. Here you can place towels rather than putting them in a hallway closet, or you may like to keep candles, sprays and toilet paper on these shelves. Spice Rack for Makeup A lot of antique stores sell vintage and rustic spice racks. There are also metallic spice racks to fit in with your modern kitchen. However, many people don’t consider adding a spice rack into their bathroom. These are perfect for a narrow space such as spice racks that are long, narrow and ideal for makeup brushes, makeup, toothpaste, and odds & ends. Mounted Shelf Above the Door While you don’t see this too often, a mounted shelf looks elegant when hung over the door. Use a wood shelf and pair it with white brackets for a clean look. Guests probably won’t notice it and you can store your more unappealing possessions here. Lazy Susan Again, another idea taken from the kitchen and implemented into the bathroom! The Lazy Susan can be placed inside your cabinet so you can store little items. The Lazy Susan is ideal for makeup, smaller shampoo bottles, medicine, extra toothpaste and toothbrushes, contacts, etc. If you need assistance with your bathroom design and need expert bathroom remodeling advice, fill out our contact form.

Planning for your bathroom remodel is quite fun at the beginning stages and pinning inspirational photos can get any homeowner excited. However, you always need to slow down and think realistically or you could create a huge list of products that just don’t fit within the budget. Let’s look at the average bathroom renovation costs per the National Kitchen and Bath Association:

  • Design fees – 4%
  • Installation fees – 20%
  • Fixtures – 15%
  • Cabinetry & hardware – 16%
  • Countertops – 7%
  • Lighting – 5%
  • Flooring- 9%
The statistics above will help greatly in the prevention of sticker shock. It’s extremely easy to overspend when remodeling your bathroom so be honest when talking with the bathroom designers. One of the biggest factors when determining the bathroom remodeling cost is the bathroom size. The larger the bathroom, the larger the fixtures. You’ll need to think about faucets, showers and baths, new floors, countertops, lighting and cabinets. Smaller bathrooms are much less expensive due to the square footage. Fewer materials are involved to redo the bathroom and the cost of labor will also be a bit cheaper. However, make sure to have room in your budget in case plumbers and electricians run into a problem. The cost of your bathroom remodel will increase if you plan on enlarging the bathroom because you’ll need to switch up the electrical wiring, add flooring and you might need to add more plumbing.
