The Best Bathroom Closet Designs
We use the restroom at some of the busiest times of the day. As a result, having a well-organized bathroom is a significant time-saver. If your home has a bathroom closet or two, consider yourself fortunate.
It's a good idea to include a bathroom closet in your floor plan if you're undergoing a bathroom remodel or renovation. Even a small bathroom can likely accommodate a small linen closet or an additional linen cabinet.
When it comes to bathroom storage, both aesthetics and closet organization should be considered. To add some spice to any size bathroom closet, hang a beautiful wallpaper on the back wall.
Whether you're heading out the door or getting ready for bed, bathroom storage organization can help you and your family to stay on track. We will look at the best bathroom closet ideas and you can pick a few to help you organize your bathroom storage. (Trendey, 2021)
Linen Closet Cabinet Design
The classic linen cabinet is by far one of the most common types of bathroom storage cabinets. It is also one that virtually every manufacturer offers at least a few of. These are tall, tower-like cabinets that are usually two-tiered, with adjustable shelves on top and a closed cabinet below.
Some are specifically designed for storing towels and the like. Others are outfitted with raised panels and are more geared toward stowing toiletries.
There are several options to consider when designing your linen closet. These options include; standard or glass shelves, pull-out shelves, and cubbies or cubes for rolled linens.
Linen cabinets, regardless of the interior arrangement, offer the most storage for the amount of floor space they occupy. They can however be a bit hulking and unwieldy in smaller spaces.
The key to keeping your linen closet neat and tidy is proper shelving. It's necessary to do a thorough purge before attempting a linen closet organization. (Closet Works, 2018)
ProTip Takeaway: A doorless linen closet is a good idea for eliminating the space occupied by a door. Fitting a closet opening with attractive wood shelving can actually increase storage space in a small bathroom.
Inset style cabinets
Inset cabinets are one of the most specialized and, as a result, the most expensive types of cabinetry. The cabinets are designed to fit inside the cabinet frame.
They must be cut with laser-sharp precision to ensure a perfect fit. These cabinets are beautiful and exhibit the highest level of craftsmanship. They are also known to reduce the amount of storage space available compared to other types of cabinetry.
This is because they must fit into the cabinet frame differently than standard cabinets. Consider an inset style cabinet for your bathroom if you want high-quality cabinets that will last a lifetime. (Nimvo, 2018)
ProTip Takeaway: These are cabinets that are found in traditional and transitional style homes, rather than any other home decor themes.
The side cabinet is another popular bathroom storage option. These are a cousin or little sister to the linen cabinet. They are the same height as your vanity or a little shorter. They are a great design idea as they tend to add a little extra cabinet or drawer storage while extending your counter space.
These are used as bridge or connector pieces to join two smaller bathroom vanities into a single, not-quite-solid double vanity. They can be as small as an extra set of drawers or as large as a vanity table to suit your master bathroom.
Over The Toilet Cabinets
Manufacturers that offer over-the-toilet storage hutches are uncommon. This type of bathroom cabinet will go well with any bathroom interior design and master bath remodel upon completion and can be used to store cleaning supplies and toilet paper.
Over the toilet cabinets are a little nicer (and sturdier) than generic wire ones. They are made of wood rather than wire. They also have built-in closeable cabinets rather than just open shelves.
These are the least likely to be paired with a vanity of all the options on this list. So if you want one, you should look for it separately rather than waiting for a package deal. (Home Thangs, 2017)
The main issue with any type of wood bathroom storage cabinet is that, unless it's part of a set, it may not be a perfect match for your vanity. Many manufacturers get around this problem by offering simple cabinets in a few of their most popular finishes.
If you're worried about everything matching in your bathroom design, a mirrored medicine cabinet might be a better option. You won't have any trouble achieving a unified look without any wood trim. Almost all manufacturers offer stylish medicine cabinets designed to add storage above your sink.
Walk Through Closet To Bathroom
The number of master bedroom floor plans with a closet and bathroom that you must walk through/in to get to the other is on the rise. Builders and home buyers seem to prefer these master suite tandem room arrangements. This is because hallways take up less space, making the home feel more spacious.
This floor plan requires homeowners to enter the bedroom first, and then pass through their attached bathroom to get to the walk-in closet. This type of closet comes with advantages such as:
Open closet: This arrangement allows for greater flexibility and the possibility of an open closet layout. It creates a way in which a closet/dressing room is integrated into the master bedroom. This results in making the space appear larger and more personal.
Quiet environment: The sound of running water is muffled by a full closet, which acts as a sound barrier.
Odor-Free Bedroom: When there is a closet between the bathroom and the bedroom, there is less chance that these smells will reach your partner. (Closet Works, 2019)
Bathroom with Walk-In Closet
This floor plan requires homeowners to enter the bedroom, pass through their attached bathroom to get to the large walk-in closet. This type of closet comes with advantages such as these:
You can lock your closet without restricting access to the bathroom, which gives you more security for your belongings.
Shorter walk to the washroom: Depending on your circumstances, this may be critical.
You and your partner will be the only ones who see the closet in this setup. You can use less expensive finishes and options than you would in a more public space.
The closet will be its own private space. You may not want to use the closet as a hallway if it will double as a dressing room, office, exercise room, or private retreat. In this case, passing through the bathroom to get to the closet is preferable to the other way around.
Free-Floating Shelves and Wall Mounted Cabinets
Simple wall-mounted shelves that match your vanity are frequently available. This option is more common among manufacturers with transitional, modern, or contemporary leanings. It is also common among those that specialize in smaller bathrooms.
In the same vein, wall-mounted side cabinets are very common. These come in a variety of sizes and shapes, ranging from small cubbies to nearly full-sized linen cabinets. They take up a fraction of the space of freestanding cabinets, making them a great, versatile option for a smaller space.
Bathroom storage mirrors are on the other end of the spectrum. These are simple mirrors framed or embellished with shelves, cabinets, or cubbies. This is better than having purely mirrored surfaces that conceal storage behind them. This type of storage space will work well in a small bathroom as a storage solution.
Unlike most of the other options on this list, these are almost always sold in pairs with individual vanities. This is because they're designed to work with the layout and finish of the vanities they're paired with. More versatile versions may be available from manufacturers with a more modern bent. The manufacturer usually makes it clear if they are.
ProTip Takeaway: If you have a white bathroom you can order a matching storage mirror from manufacturers to suit your bathroom design.
Closets improve the comfort and functionality of your living space, even if they aren't fancy. Some can be surrounded by tiles from floor to ceiling. So, don't be afraid to invest in a good closet for closet organization.
New bathroom cabinets can give your modern bathroom a whole new look. They can also and add a lot of value to your home, regardless of what type of cabinetry you fall in love with and want to upgrade to. (Norda Architecture, 2021)
