Designing a Bathroom with Open Storage

Do you have a habit of leaving clutter on the bathroom counters? Or do you like to keep items out so guests can easily find amenities?

Look to open storage options like a floating shelf, an open cabinet or a vanity floor shelf to make items easier to acess and easy for your guests to find.

One popular place for displaying and storing spare towles and other everyday bathroom supplies is on an open floor shelf under the vanity. This design element also makes your bathroom appear larger while making it easy to see your everyday items. This is a great option for a guest bathroom design. I know for myself, when I'm a guest, I feel a bit uncomfortable opening drawers and cabinets in a bathroom that is not my own to find a fresh towel. It feels more comfortable when they are out in the open.

An open cabinet can display your everyday items in so many different ways. A decorative hamper can sit inside an open cabinet to present a space for fresh guest towels or simply outfitted with a stack of neatly folded towels.

As you can see, creating a designated space for your “out in the open” items helps manage clutter, free your vanity countertop, and still allows you to have your often-used items at your fingertips.
