You can even go to another level and create brackets that match the theme of the room. For example, try glued-together kitchen utensils for an eye-grabbing set of brackets in the kitchen. Or how about gluing old video cassettes to a thin metal bracket for a shelf next to the TV? You can also take cheap brackets and decorate them. Try attaching CDs onto brackets for a striking stereo shelf or sticking ribbons and bows on a plain shelf bracket in a little girl’s room? The sky’s the limit. Go wild with some decorative shelf brackets.
Most remodelers tend to think of a single medicine cabinet over the sink. But with a little creativity, you can use additional medicine cabinets in other places in the small bathroom to provide both space and the light-reflecting property of the mirror to make the room look larger. For example, a larger medicine cabinet placed in a wall at one end of or behind a tub is a great place to store soaps, lotions, bubble bath, wash cloths and even towels. All the items needed for the bath can be in close proximity yet out of sight.
