Bathroom Shelves

Are you tired of leaving your toothpaste, makeup, soap, and everything else in the bathroom balanced precariously on the edge of the sink? Do you get annoyed with the lack of useful shelving in your bathroom?

A lot of people overlook the need for extra bathroom shelves, and it always seems cluttered as a result.

bathroom shelvesBathrooms are a central room in your home, and they need proper decorative shelves and storage shelves just like anywhere else. There are a lot of creative, decorative shelving solutions available to enhance your bathroom, giving it a more ordered look while providing you with not only extra storage space but also great ways to display vases, pretty bottles, bowls, figurines and other objects that will add beauty to your bathroom.

Most bathrooms aren’t all that big, so when adding shelving to the bathroom you have to really measure carefully and whatever you do, don’t overdo it. Just one bathroom shelf unit, or one set of bathroom wall shelves is usually as much as you can normally add to a bathroom. Even if you have more space to add glass bathroom shelves or other bathroom shelving, think twice. If you put in too much your bathroom will feel crowded and uncomfortable.

When considering bathroom shelves, think creatively about where to put them. We’ve found decorative bathroom shelves as well as bathroom storage shelves that are designed to fit into every nook and cranny of your bathroom. You can find shelves designed to fit above the toilet (but mounted on the floor, not the wall) as well as shelves for under the sink, around the mirror, and in the corners. There are glass bathroom shelves, wood bathroom shelves, and also metal bathroom shelves to meet your taste, as well as your needs.

If you are interested in wall-mounted bathroom shelves, take into account the type of wall you have. If you have bathroom tiles on the wall, you must have the proper drill bits so you won’t crack the tiles when you drill the holes.

Wood bathroom shelves are very nice, and certainly a step up from plastic ones. Take into account, however, that wood bathroom shelves need to be finished and sealed properly. Exposed wood in a humid area, like a bathroom with a steamy shower, will become moldy, and a health risk. Get shelves that are rated for bathroom use.

Freestanding Bathroom Shelves

If you need extra shelf space in your bathroom, and you have the floor space for a freestanding bathroom shelf, then we have a load of great ideas and suggestions for you.

When you are looking for added shelving in a smaller space like a bathroom you have to be creative in your thinking. Narrower, taller shelves might fit in better into the available space. Corner bathroom shelves would work better if you have an unused corner in your bathroom.

It’s not enough to think about your storage needs in your bathroom, you should also be considering the possibility of using some of the added shelving for decoration. A bathroom doesn’t have to be just functional, it can be attractive and decorated as well. For that, there are all sorts of bathroom shelf units that have storage shelves as well as display shelves for figurines, jars, vases, etc.

When looking for freestanding bathroom shelves on the internet, we found that they range from simpler, chrome storage units to nicer wood, metal and glass bathroom storage units.

Depending on your available space, you can choose to add smaller, more delicate units that look great and add a lot of character. If, on the other hand you need to store a lot more (in, for example, a children’s bathroom) you would want to consider a unit that is stronger, larger, and less prone to breakage.

Wall-Mounted Bathroom Shelves

Most bathrooms aren’t that big. They also don’t usually have a lot of open floor space. This is where wall-mounted bathroom shelves come in very handy. They provide you with more storage space in your bathroom, without taking up too much space or crowding the floor.

When deciding what type of bathroom shelves are best for you, take into consideration the current state of your bathroom. Is it cluttered? Do you have enough storage space for non-display items like extra rolls of toilet paper, towels, or toothpaste? On the other hand, would you like to enhance your bathroom with displays? Have you seen nice figurines, vases or other objects that would brighten up your bathroom?

There are 2 main types of wall-mounted bathroom shelves. There are the shelves that are more designed for storage, and the shelves that are better for display. The former are usually deeper, and in many cases they come with doors to enclose them. These types of shelves are more often made of wood.

Display shelves, on the other hand, tend to be shallower, open, and made of metal, glass, or a combination of the two. It’s important for you to know what type you need beforehand, since most bathrooms aren’t very large, and wall space is limited. If it’s important to you to have both types of shelving in your bathroom, but you don’t have a lot of space, consider purchasing a larger storage bathroom shelf unit, and a smaller display shelf, so that you can have both without overloading your walls. If you put up too many shelves it will feel uncomfortable and “crowded” in your bathroom.
