There are certain trade-offs when it comes to apartment life. You know that your space is limited. This is as true for decorating ideas as it is for storage. Both of these factors come into play when it comes to taking care of the bathroom in your apartment. You may never have enough space in your apartment bathroom, but there are tips and tricks that can help you both maximize your space and have the bathroom looking great.
Work on Your Display
If done the right way, the bath products you have in your bathroom can be part of the display itself. The trick is to not have too much on the vanity itself. Most bath products come with their own colorful packaging. Items such as bath salts, cotton swabs, and more can be displayed in mason jars that are both aesthetically pleasing and handy containers. Make sure that your display is also functional. What you leave out can make your bathroom cozy while also being functional.
The Medicine Cabinet
Your main place of storage in the bathroom is the medicine cabinet. It not only holds hygiene products, but it also holds medications, hair accessories, and more. A great way to maximize space is to purchase a stand-alone medicine cabinet that goes over the toilet. Some of these units are quite large and can even hold extra towels, soap, and more. Most hardware stores have dozens of options for stand-alone medicine cabinets.
Add a Plant
It may not seem like m8uch, but if you add a plant such as a fern or cactus it can serve many purposes. First, it adds a splash of color that can be a visual focus in the room. Second, plants can help reduce the moisture levels in a room that is already high in humidity. They help absorb the moisture from a steamy shower and make the room more comfortable. As a bonus, they don’t take up much space, either.
Use Stackable Containers
Whether it is under the sink or in the medicine cabinet, stackable containers help you maximize every square inch of storage. By using vertical storage space you can double or even triplet he area available. Many stores have containers designed to fit into tight spaces in the bathroom such as between the wall and toilet.
Add a Personal Touch with Art
It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, but framed prints or other artwork can be a great final touch. Empty wall space is a great area for a piece of art, and it can be anything. Be creative and look at making a collage of photographs. This is a quick and inexpensive way to liven up the room.
These are just a few of the way you can really dress up your small apartment bathroom.
