The master bathroom in my home is a nightmare. It has zero built-in storage. There isn’t a single drawer, shelf, or cupboard in the entire space. Not only that, it doesn’t even have a toilet paper holder or towel rack attached to the wall. I wish I were kidding, but I’m not.
I have no idea what the previous owners were thinking when they gutted the room and redesigned it. It’s as if storage were something they feared.
After we finish our bedroom redesign project, we’re planning to take on the bathroom problem. But, until that point, we had to do something as a temporary solution:
We decided to use InterMETRO Shelving because it can be disassembled and reused in another area of our home when we create built-in storage in the bathroom. Additionally, we can reconfigure the set-up of the system as our needs change — add more shelves, swap out the shelves, make it taller, etc.
We also chose to use inexpensive boxes that look nice and can be repurposed when they’re no longer needed in this space. We went with white because it’s one color that appears in every room of our home.
(As a side note, if you’re trying to decide on tile colors for your bathroom floor, do not go with white. Every stray cat and human hair screams “LOOK AT ME,” which means that we are constantly cleaning the floor. A nice light gray would look just as nice and not require daily sweeping.)
If you have a temporary storage problem in your home, think about a solution that can be reused someplace else when it’s no longer needed in its temporary space. The InterMETRO Shelving also is a great idea for renters who need more storage but aren’t looking to make a permanent installment.
