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.
When it comes to kitchen storage it seems we all have something in common: there is never enough. No matter how big out kitchens it always seems as if every cupboard and cabinet is busting at the seams with cooking utensils, serving platters and of course, food. They key to feeling as if you have ample kitchen or pantry storage is organizing and working with the space you do have with. By organizing your existing kitchen items, you will make room for any new items you may acquire as well as make current items easier to find.
