In every small bathroom there is the challenge of where to put personal items, how to store cleaners out of plain sight, and how to accommodate your guests when using your tiny bathroom.
There are many blunders that homeowners make when trying to outfit their bathroom, such as putting in a pedestal sink to save space, but then there is no place to store towels or for guests to put their purse.
Here are tips to help you overcome common guest bathroom blunders in your home.
- Think of your guests first: While a beautiful guest bathroom is nice to have, your guests will appreciate a well thought out and functional bathroom even more. If you have a small pedestal think, consider putting a small stool, side table or even a decorative wall hook for your guests to hang their belongings. Install shelving or design architectural niches in the wall to house soap, extra toilet paper rolls and hand towels so your guests don’t have to search.

- Hide what doesn’t need to be seen: While this sounds obvious, the truth is that many of us forget that guests don’t need to see your personal hygiene accessories, bathroom cleaners and extra supplies. Behind the toilet on the floor is not the best storage place for anything. Visually, it looks unkempt and it’s probably less than sanitary for housing anything, as well. Opt for a closed cabinet vanity or utilizing a closet in an adjacent linen closet. If you have enough space, consider reusing a piece of furniture to house towels, paper towels and small pampering items for your guests to easily access.
