    Storage solutions for your DIY bathroom

    Published on 23 January 2012, Monday, 6:15 AM

    As one of the most popular rooms in the house, storage forms an essential part of any DIY bathroom.

    Often compact in size, bathrooms can be the cause of great debate between family members fighting to have their everyday necessities within easy reach.

    One of the most common places for storage is under the bathroom sink, but DIY homeowners may wish to consider exposed shelves rather hiding them than cabinet doors.

    Not only can this help to create a more open feel, but it can also encourage bathroom users to keep the space neat and tidy.

    Floating glass shelves can be added in unlikely places - such as underneath the mirror, along the bath or in a corner of the room - and can provide a subtle look that doesn't overwhelm the small room.

    Baskets can also act as a decorative yet practical option for both cupboards and the floor, while hooks do not have to be limited to towels and bathrobes - they can be utilised to store hair dryers and straighteners in order to prevent cords tangling.

    One key tip to keep in mind is that by allowing more floor space to be seen, a bathroom can feel bigger.
