7 bathroom shelf ideas for every style

 

A bathroom is more than just a space created for daily necessities. It’s our most intimate cocoon where we not only hit refresh but also spend some of our alone time to draw inspiration from time to time. As you must have heard some say, the best of creative ideas come to you in the shower!

Since we happen to have experienced that, we have curated a list of bathroom shelf design ideas for you so that your intimate sanctum is not just refreshing but also a functional aid.

A BEAUTIFUL DISPLAY
With white marble walls coupled with wooden sections, the glass shelves not only give you a lot of space to stack your essentials but also lets you experiment with inspiring displays to enhance the bathroom’s interior decor. While the trays next to the basin are for daily essentials, you can use the shelves below it for your beauty products and fragrances.

The shelves on the side can be used for extra towels and even loungewear, making it easily accessible every night when you get home and freshen up before dinner.

A COZY BATHROOM
If keeping your bathroom space sleek and neat is your style, this bathroom shelf design is just right for you. While the most prominent shades used here are white and blue, the space feels clutter free because of less open shelves. Mirror cabinets are a traditional and effective way of storing the essentials without crowding the space. Coupling that with a cabinet that holds the sink is a smart bathroom design approach. Keeping a laundry bin on the side and some flower vases on the other is great to keep your bathroom design in style while being functional.

YOUR SPA AT HOME
If a warm tub is your daily spa activity, designing it alongside a shelf that could hold your phone and candles would be a great idea. While the drawer below the basins is wide enough to store your bottled essentials, an open rack like the one below it is accessible as well as aesthete to hold the dry towels.

To make the space more vibrant, a couple of flowers vases are used to ornate the rack below the television. Which could be used as your snack-holding counter too. This bathroom shelf design in white and brass is out of the ordinary for sure and the warm lamps add to the refined cozy vibe.

A BOHEMIAN BATHROOM
We know light wood and white go beautifully together. And if bohemian is your style then this bathroom shelf design is for you to take cues from. While the sink area is reserved for house plants and toothbrushes, the wall-to-wall racks on the right are perfect to keep your bathroom products in line. Hanging hooks and laundry bin on the left are for used clothes whereas, the bucket on the shelf below the sink is specifically for dry towels. Sectionalising your bathroom for different purposes is a good way to keep it clutter-free.

A MINIMAL APPROACH
If you have a bathroom to yourself and don’t need a lot of shelf space for your products, this bathroom shelf design is perfect to take cues from. Shelves made out of the window space is a great way to store your shower essentials while also using tinted glass for an intriguing design.

The cabinet on the other hand, holding the sink, provides a lot of area and more for your beauty essentials. So while all your storing needs are met, the bathroom also feels quite minimal and spacious.

MADE IN MONOCHROME
Shut cabinets coupled with open vertical shelf gives you the liberty to keep your bathroom essentials depending on how frequently you need them. While towels and washing products are kept on the open shelves, the cabinet can be used for beauty products that are used once a day. While the house plant adds some vibrancy to this bathroom design, it’s most of the elements in this space sharing the same hue, that makes it intriguing.

SPACE FOR EVERYTHING
With a bathroom space like this, you can be sure to make use of it with strategic shelf placements. A ladder rack next to the jacuzzi is good to store all the towels and robes, while the laundry bin close to it is perfect for the washables.

The bathroom shelves below the sink are wide enough for all your beauty essentials, while leaving a lot of open space, adorned with art pieces and warm lights. You can even shift your washing machine next to the laundry bin.
