One of the most important aspects of a bathroom is considering the storage requirements for your new bathroom. It’s important to think about where you’re going to hide away all those toiletries or any other items that or handy to have close in your bathroom.

Vanity Units

Depending on the size and shape of the unit it can be a difficult choice when it comes to finding the right storage. A lot of vanity units offer great visual design and shape but what they make up for in those areas they lack in storage.  What most people forget about is the basin trap waste that flows from under the basin into the unit and out of the wall the basin is attached to. This takes up some space within the unit which usually only leaves the bottom drawer of the unit with the most space. If you have the space within your bathroom it would be better to go for a larger vanity unit with a simple modern square design which will then offer more space.

Cloakroom Vanity Units

Laufen Cloakroom Unit Pro SCloakroom vanity units can be crucial in such a small bathroom because even though they are smaller they still allow decent amounts of storage. Sometimes finding storage in a bathroom is hard enough but when it comes to a cloakroom it is generally quite difficult to find some storage features that fit into the space provided. Modular cloakroom units are often the solution to this when you are looking for a more modern cloakroom. Although cloakroom vanity units tend to be smaller in width, they usually are a lot longer than normal sized units, mostly providing shelf storage design. If you have a little bit more space in your cloakroom than most a cloakroom vanity unit might not be the answer. Most manufactures have created modular basin & units in sizes up to 45cm width and still allow near enough the same depth as a regular sized basin unit.

 

Fitted Furniture

Utopia Contemporary fitted furnitureFitted furniture units are probably the best option for storage in a bathroom. This is because they are made to measure which allows the units to run from wall to wall, providing a lot more storage than a modular unit. The latest trends are suggesting that fitted furniture isn’t as popular as what it used to be, this is because people go for an easier to clean bathroom style. If it is storage you are looking for then fitted furniture is the way to go and there are some more modern styles that have recently hit the market, creating a balance of visuals and practicality. The great thing about fitted style furniture is that you can include WC units and extra base units that will provide a run of even more storage.

Storage in bathrooms aren’t just provided through units, it is also through clever storage that can be placed anywhere throughout your bathroom. An easy way to do this is to include recesses into the design.  The most popular places for recesses to be is in the shower area or above the bath. Another idea is if you have a bath to create a tiled bath panel instead of a regular one where you can house a shelf created by a recess. Other ideas for storage are to include accessories like furniture shelves which can be placed anywhere in the bathroom, creating storage which could be higher and above all the units or stacked in a vertical run.

 

Cabinet and Furniture Storage

Unit StorageA great way to incorporate more storage into a bathroom is to include cabinets such as tall cabinets or mirror cabinets. Instead of having a regular or an illuminated mirror in a bathroom why not have a large mirror cabinet that could be a regular or recessed for an easy to clean look. Another storage idea is to have a tall cabinet which is quite a popular option, especially in a more modern bathroom.

Tall units and wall units come in all shapes and sizes so its just a case of choosing one that best suits your design and fits in with the rest of the furniture in the bathroom. Most manufacturers will have a tall unit included in the same ranges as the basin units to match in style.
