The following article is an excerpt from HGTV by Kimberly Pfaff Tchang. This article will help you get the most out of your bathroom vanity with these clever storage ideas.
Convenient Step Stool
When designing a smaller bathroom for kids, smart details like this pullout step stool can help save valuable floor space. Placing the sink off-center allows for three vanity drawers, space under the sink and maximum counter space. Design by Amanda Richards of Burlap & Denim.
"It doesn't cost that much more to build organization right into a cabinet," says interior designer Angela Todd. For this master bath, Angela turned the bottom portion of the countertop tower into clutter-free cubby storage for hair-styling tools and other toiletries, complete with a flip-up door and interior electrical outlets. The top part of the tower houses a small stereo and iPod docking station, while the bottom has wide, full-extension drawers that hold brushes, curling irons and other bathroom necessities.
Cabinet Storage Tower
Sleek vanities in custom finishes make this smaller-scale master bath feel larger. The room required more storage, so designer Bea Pila placed a tower cabinet between the two sinks. With its combination of adjustable enclosed shelves on top and pullout drawers below, the furniture-like tower offers a place for everything.
