Maximizing bathroom storage space is a great idea for any home, as it can allow you the time to clean, cull old belongings and beauty products, and organize. Modern construction for a residential living tends to be on the smaller side. Bathrooms are smaller, living rooms are smaller, and so are bedrooms and kitchens. These new changes give you the opportunity to be savvy and creative with your storage.
Light Wall Colours
Maximizing bathroom storage space starts with a good base. Use softer, lighter colors in your bathroom, paint the walls in light colors and use storage units that are pale. This opens up space and reflects light, making it seem bigger and brighter than it is.
Solid colored shower curtains can make it feel like there is a wall making the space even smaller, or cutting it in half even. Using glass instead of shower curtains or solid colored panels adds transparency and makes it seem like space is bigger than it is.
Instead of storing as many products as you can under the sink, think about working with height. Add mirrored medicine cabinets above the sink and shelving above the toilet or along any free wall space you have to maximize storage potential.
Using large mirrors will make space seem much larger than it actually is, and it will create a tall, grand sense of spaciousness that some other methods will not provide. You can try these LED Mirrors to add even more brightness and make your morning beauty routine a breeze.
Working with smaller bathrooms can seem daunting at first, however, once you get into the flow of knowing exactly what you want and how much storage you need, it’s a breeze. Every home has different needs, and finding yours is where you need to start. Do you have more cleaning products that require larger compartments? Do you have more small bottles and beauty products that require shorter, more narrow shelves or even smaller compartments? Do you store your makeup and hair accessories in the bathroom and require an organized pull out drawer? Once you sort out the answers to these questions, you are well on your way to building your perfect bathroom!
Contact us at Siema to find out how you can maximize bathroom storage space using our products and bathroom units. Our experts would be happy to help you make the most out of your space!
Conventional bathroom cabinets are usually small medicine cabinets above the sink which generates limited storage space. However, with the dynamic design and innovation at Siema, we offer contemporary cabinets such as mirrored medicine cabinet and side cabinets to suit your needs. In addition, they are functional with a spectacular look.
Bathroom vanities are definitely one of the hardest working cabinetry of a household. They have to support daily wear and tear as you get ready every morning or give your pets their baths. You store all your everyday necessities in this sacred place. Exposing to moisture can promote bacteria growth and you wouldn’t want that. Therefore it is crucial to determine and assure the size and quality of your bathroom vanities.
In regard to the location of bathroom cabinets…
Firstly, make sure cabinet doors have enough room to open without hitting something or getting in the way. Measure the depth of vanities with doors open to make sure they fit comfortably. Building codes say the minimum allowable distance in front of vanities (and toilets) is 21 inches. Secondly, always be sure there’s enough space over and around the vanity to install a mirror and lights. In Siema, we offer LED mirrors which could be a complement of your bathroom cabinets.
Similar to kitchen cabinetry, bath cabinetry is available in four basic grades (RTA, stock, semi-custom and custom) and two general construction approaches (face framed and frameless).
In Siema, we take pride in the premium quality of our bathroom cabinets…
As mentioned above, bathroom vanities are exposed to moisture and humidity. As a result, a good bathroom cabinet must be able to endure moisture and a lot of opening and closing.
If you are in need of a bathroom cabinet, or would like to upgrade your bathroom vanity, please do not hesitate to contact Siema Kitchen & Bath.
No matter the size of your bathroom there is always room for improvement. This space should be also a spot to relax and recharge your energy after a long day because everybody deserved to have a place to take a break from the outside world. If you have in mind a total bathroom makeover or just want small updates, at Siema Kitchen and Bath our friendly and experienced team will assist you in designing your dream bathroom.
Here are some bathroom remodelling ideas to create an oasis-relaxing atmosphere for this room:
Tubs and Showers
What could be more relaxing than a warm bubbles bath in a pleasant bathtub? In Siema, we offer a variety of soft rounded edges and rectangular freestanding bathtubs for the style that better fits you. Jetted tubs are very convenient to fix up a heavy day, or clawfoot tubs will give your bath a vintage look. Besides the bathtub, you may need a shower. Contemplate the possibility of using colors in your shower tile design to generate a vibrant environment, and if your have enough space, you can include a bench in the same shower tile where you can sit and relax, recalling a spa look.
Bathroom vanities will complement and help you to organize this room. Customized vanities are available at Siema. We offer wall-mounted, glass, double sink, among other vanities that can be designed to suit your needs. If you don’t want to change your current vanity, but want a different touch, take into account reface your cabinets.
If your bathroom lacks windows and natural lighting, you can consider adding LED lights and even better, LED mirrors. LED bulbs last longer than incandescent bulbs, do not generate heat and are environmentally friendly because they are less polluting (reducing CO2 emissions by 80%) and save energy. This type of lighting will give your bathroom a bright and technological touch, but if what you want is something less shining, dim lights or even candlelight are a good option for a relaxing environment. With a moderate budget, you can upgrade your bathroom lighting by adding dimmers or just some wall candleholders.
Just as the shower tiles, the rest of the bathroom can have colors that make you feel more calm and change your mood, because colors are capable of evoking different perceptions of the same space. Even when you may think painting is not that important, finding the right colors for you can make a big difference, sometimes more that other design elements.

There are so many ways to use old furniture, or repurpose old materials into a brand new organizational piece – for any room.

Keeping items out of plain sight can make a space look less cluttered and it can also be much easier to clean.
