Great article. We have a small bathroom with limited storage, but had never thought of putting a funky shelf / cubby above the bath until now. So excited by the gorgeous ideas.

We have recently completed a renovation of our ensuite. The new design, which is tidy and easy to clean, meant the loss of 2 drawers and 2 cupboards. These were replaced by 2 recessed, mirrored shaving cabinets; a loss of more than 50% of our storage space. I was more than a little worried. When the reno began, I placed all items into a large box and as we needed them, they were taken out and left on a dresser. By the time we were finished with the reno, there were only a handful of items which had been used. These items easily fit into the new cabinets with plenty of room to spare (phew)! Roughly half the remaining items were thrown away and the rest are in a smaller box and being stored elsewhere. Everything left in this smaller box will be thrown away a year after the reno commenced.
