When designing the bathroom, it is important to make use of space very efficiently. This will help to make your bathroom decor appear more organised. One of the most common areas that get ignored in the bathroom is the space under the sink. This space appears very awkward and cluttered because of the pipes connected to the sink. As a result, the overall appeal of the bathroom gets diminished. However, you can come up with various under sink storage ideas for your bathroom that will help to make the space more functional and appealing. You will be able to store various items there and can cover the awkward-looking pipes as well. If you are not sure what kind of storage you should choose for your bathroom sink design, here are a few ideas for inspiration:
01 of 06 Install shelves
If you do not want to spend a lot of money and keep the storage design minimalistic, you can just opt for shelves. Installing shelves under your bathroom sink design is one of the easiest ways to add storage to your bathroom. They are very easy to install and offer plenty of storage space to store all your bathroom essentials. Also, since they do not have any doors, accessing the stored items is easier. It is better to opt for customised shelves for this space because you have to fit them around the pipes. This will also allow you to create shelving that will complement the overall look of your bathroom decor. However, shelves get dirty faster than cabinets.
02 of 06 A cabinet
Just like shelves, you can opt for a cabinet. A cabinet is also a great option for under sink storage. Since the space stays completely covered when you install a cabinet, you do not have to worry about the pipework staying exposed and affecting the overall look of the bathroom. It offers plenty of storage space and will allow you to store all your bathroom essentials. If the cabinet does not have shelves, you can install one or two to increase the storage space. There are many well-designed cabinet options that you can opt for to enhance the appeal of your bathroom decor.
03 of 06 Install a tension rod
Besides adding shelves in the cabinet, there are other options you can opt for. For instance, you can make use of vertical space by installing a tension rod that can help you to store various items. By hanging items on the tension rod, you can ensure that they are quick to grab when you need them. However, installing a tension rod in the cabinet does not mean you cannot install other storage options inside. By simply hanging a tension rod at the top of the cupboard, you can ensure that sufficient space is available for installing the shelves.
04 of 06 Hang items on hooks
If you opt for a clever bathroom storage unit, it will give you various options to store more items inside. As a result, you can make use of space very efficiently and store various items in one place. One very popular and simple item often found in smart storing units is hooks. Hooks are great because they allow you to store more items in your cabinet without occupying any extra space. As a result, you do not have to worry about installing it around the pipework. Hooks can be used for storing various items including gloves, pieces of cloth, cleaning brushes, etc.
05 of 06 Use baskets for storage
Baskets are a great option for storing items. They will help to keep the items more organised. You can use one basket for storing items of a particular category so that it is easier to find them when required. By using a few baskets, you can store all the bathroom essential items together categorically and avoid confusion while finding them. Irrespective of whether you have in-built shelves or not, you can use baskets for storing and organising the items. Opt for baskets that are deep and large and will make use of the space efficiently. This will allow you to store more items in a small space.
06 of 06 Make use of the backside of the cabinet door
Creating good storage also means making use of space efficiently. Hence, if you install a storage cabinet, you have to ensure the maximum utilisation of space. Hence, you will also have to make use of the back of the cabinet door. It is one of the areas that people do not take into consideration while planning the storage. This should not be the case as you can come up with many interesting ideas to use the backside of the cabinet door for increasing storage. One of the most common ways is installing hooks.
