Bathrooms are often one of the smallest rooms in the house, so clever storage is always a welcome addition to a bathroom design.
Here are six bathroom storage tips:
1. On the shelf
If bathroom storage space is at a premium, you can add shelves to your design and utilise space that might otherwise be wasted. High level shelves can use space above sinks, baths and toilets for storing towels and toiletries.
And, if space isn’t any issue and you want to create the sense of spa-like luxury to your bathroom design, use 2020 Fusion to add shelves along with room accessories such as candles, bottles of scented oils, plants, vases etc for a realistic look.
2. Top drawer
How often have we all spent time searching around the back of a low level under sink cupboard looking for something? It is so much easier to find things when they are in drawers. Incorporating units with a selection of drawers is a convenient bathroom storage solution with a touch of luxury. It’s important the drawers pull out fully so the whole interior can be viewed, plus dividers allow for the contents to be organised neatly. Drawers within drawers maximise storage capacity, and finger channels on the drawer fronts for a neat finish. Lift out boxes for cosmetics is a nice finishing touch.
3. Focal point
The latest vanity units are being designed not just to support the basin and offer bathroom storage but also provide a focal point for the bathroom. With 2020 Fusion, designers have access to a range of catalogues featuring the latest vanity units to suit all their bathroom design requirements.
4. Size It Up
Whatever the size of the bathroom and the household, there are storage solutions to fit. Family-sized bathrooms require family-sized bathroom storage, whereas bathrooms for a single-bed house have more modest storage requirements. Using modular bathroom storage systems made up of different-sized but co-ordinating pieces is a great way to create the perfect solution for your design whatever the size and household requirements. They can be lined up or stacked and come in square and rectangular cubes which can be used either vertically or horizontally.
5. Hidden Assets
If the bathroom you are designing has stud walls to conceal cisterns and pipework, why not utilise this hidden space and turn it into bathroom storage? A cabinet set in to a hidden space is a clever way to maximise every storage opportunity. Pick a unit with a mirrored door, and you can increase the light in the room and enhance the sense of space.
6. On the rack
A radiator that doubles as a towel store, clothes and accessory hanger is a great way to add more bathroom storage options to your design. Plus they can make a design statement or create a focal point, too.
Mirror radiators are another functional option for bathrooms. Among the more unusual but emerging radiator options are stone and glass — which are not only energy efficient, but also gives scope for decorative artwork.
Adding bathroom storage isn’t complicated. CAD software such as 2020 Fusion, gives you access to 2020 Cloud, AutoCAD and SketchUp , making it simple for designers to quickly and easily add accessories in 3D views to their customer’s existing designs or Panorama and 3D views for new designs with just a few clicks of the mouse, creating a more realistic and visually stunning design.
