Fundamentals Of Bathroom Storage - Contractor's Point Of View

If you're planning on remodeling your bathroom, you should understand the fundamentals of bathroom storage. I don't know how many times someone tells me that they don't need this or they don't need that in the bathroom, only to find out that they do.

The fundamentals of bathroom storage start with understanding what's actually stored inside the bathroom. Some people like dishtowels, washcloths, cleaning detergents and other grooming products within their reach. If you're the kind of person that likes to stand at your sink and have everything that you need within your reach, you're probably going to think twice before installing a pedestal sink.

Pedestal sinks don't have any room to store anything underneath them, unless you're planning on setting it on the floor. These sinks look great, but create big storage problems for their owners. Remodeling a bathroom without thinking about the storage, would be like building a house without any closets.

You need to think and plan your bathroom remodeling project all the way through, before you start to build it. If your current bathroom has a linen closet and you don't use it at all, you can think about getting rid of it, but make sure that you don't need it, before actually getting rid of it.

There aren’t very many things inside of a bathroom that you can do much with. You're not going to be able to store things in your toilet, but you could store things above it. You're not going to be able to store things in your bathroom and shower either. Focus on the things that you can and forget about the things that you can't, but remember how important bathroom storage actually is.
