I really love the master bathroom at our new house. For one thing, it is attached to the bedroom rather than to the hallway- meaning it is just for us and not shared with the kiddos! The shower has great pressure and the bathroom has been re-done fairly recently- so the tile is lovely and clean and new! But one thing that has been a serious challenge is the lack of storage space, which makes it pretty hard to get organized in this bathroom! Here are some bathroom storage ideas we used to tackle this problem!
I love this sink. It is simply beautiful. But where do you put stuff?
How is a girl supposed to dry her hair, apply makeup, or even brush her teeth with no counter space and no drawers or cabinets beneath the sink?
And don't even get me started on the lack of double sinks. Most marriage vows mention “for better or for worse, in sickness and in health” but don't talk about having to share a sink- because most marriages can't survive such a thing. (okay, kidding-kind of…)
So my “lovely to look at but tough to live with” sink needed some help. Enter the Rubbermaid Bento Storage Box . They have these really cool pop-out dividers that you can use to corral like-items together.
And they come in all sorts of sizes. I am using the large ones for medicines, and I can segment them by ailment (cough/cold, allergies, eyes/ears, etc). I use the medium-sized ones for make-up, lotions, and hair products. And I love the smaller boxes for make-up, facial cleansers, and oral care.
I re-purposed a bookcase to use in our storage challenged bathroom to hold all of these awesome Bento boxes.
But that bookcase doesn't fit into the space next to our sink. And I really need some of those storage containers to be close by- for the items that Steve and I use every single morning.
So I found this awesome ladder-style shelving unit that works perfectly! And I think this all looks a little spa-like and makes me feel very pampered in my new bathroom.
There's only one thing that still needs to be addressed. This bathroom also came with a bidet. I had to explain to my kids that this “thing” is actually not a sink on the floor, but is used for butt washing. Which of course makes them all beg to use it. So- Perhaps removing it will be on a future renovation list!
