If you are planning shelves for storage in your new bathroom, consider building shelves that are recessed into the wall. These shelves can be either framed with trim or left unframed. Or you can add doors to keep things on the shelves dust free. In a small bathroom, doors with glass or frosted glass doors will make the room appear more spacious than solid wood doors (and frosting creates enough blurring that you don’t need to be quite as neat). You can use the shelves strictly for storage or you can mix storage and display of decorative items. If you cannot or do not want to build recessed shelves, you might consider installing glass shelves. Because they are clear and reflect light, they do not make the room look smaller, as wood shelves might do.
Food storage containers are a good place to start when organizing your pantry storage space. Food storage containers come in a variety of sizes and can be used for a variety of foods. For instance, when you open a bag of flour, no matter how hard you try, a little bit of flour always escapes and it seems as though there is a permanent dusting in the area in which it is stored. By emptying a full bag of flour into a designated food storage container, the flour will be contained and your pantry more organized. Food storage containers also make stacking and storing filled containers easier and more convenient.
