In fact, the desire to maximize bathroom storage may be behind the trend of open shelving, once popular primarily in kitchens, finding its way into all areas of the home, including the bathroom.

Although the concept of open shelving is more popular in kitchens, they are becoming an added feature in today’s bathrooms as well. Open bathroom cabinetry is just a small detail that contributes to the overall design of the bathroom.

As bathroom layouts have evolved and priorities have shifted, larger vanities are becoming more common, which means more storage options. Vanity cabinets with open shelves leave room for accent pieces as well as more practical options, such as towels or toiletries.

Another bathroom storage option includes bathroom niche shelving which is recessed into the wall. This option serves a similar purpose and is effective in rooms exceptionally tight on space.

Storage is one of the more challenging aspects to get right in your bathroom remodel, so set up a time to talk with a designer about your frustrations and hopes for your bathroom.
