Whether you are renovating or building a bathroom, designing a smart shower and tub space will dramatically truly pay off. Here's some tips to get the most out of small spaces ...
Use the back of the bath enclosure to hang towels. Despite what you think would happen in a shower, normally, towels do not get wet at the back. You can buy a double bar rack or a rack like you see in hotels with a shelf above to fold towels or simply stagger the towel rack one over the other.
Hail the Hook
There's never enough hooks in the world and that includes the bathroom, specifically in the tub area. Hooks are great for wet face cloths, dripping bathing suits or hanging a back scrubber. Have one hook per family member - again towards the back of the shower and or up high at the front of the shower to the left or right of the shower head. Another tip is to give each family member a different colour face cloth to keep germs at bay.
Covet a Cove
Use the space between studs to build in a shower niche to store shampoo, soaps and razors. Customize the shape and size according to what is needed. Consider a high position on the wall at the front on the wall for showering and a lower niche in the middle back for bathing.
I love this vinyl shower curtain with mess pockets for holding all kinds of bathroom necessities. Use it on it's own for the advantage of light or get double shower curtain hooks to hang a fabric curtain on the front for privacy and the clear vinyl curtain on the inside. The mesh pockets are quite large and hold a lot. It is quite durable and lasts a far amount of time but does need to be replaced especially if you put a lot of weight into the pockets. Go to Bed Bath & Beyond .. But overall a winner!
