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.
Organizing and space-saving is important in every home and living area. A shoe storage bench for the entryway is perfect for this. If there is room in the front hallway, a convenient place to store shoes is right there as close to the front door since shoes are usually the last thing to be put on before leaving the house. With a bench that also stores shoes, this is two pieces of furniture that has been combined into one thus saving crucial space.
