Pretty Bathroom Storage Ideas

After my recent bathroom remodel, I wanted to overhaul the storage in the room as well. By removing my old medicine cabinet and updating the vanity, I lost a little bit of storage space. In my new room, I not only had to be smarter with how I stored all of my essentials, I also wanted it to look great!

The first step was to really clean out what I was storing in my bathroom. I got rid of a ton of old products that I was never going to use. I saw the term “shampoo graveyard” somewhere, and now I always think of this term when deciding what I should keep in my bathroom. Minimizing the clutter meant I actually had way less stuff to store than I thought.

Shoe Storage Makeover

I recently shared my mini makeover in my blogger home office. I use this room to store a lot of my closet, especially my shoe collection. I used to dream of being able to afford designer shoes long before I ever went to fashion design school, and to me, they represent how hard I have worked in my career!

When I first moved into my house, I found a bookcase on the side of the road that I loaded into my car and used to store my shoes and purses. As I’ve finally grown up a little bit and can actually afford furniture, I wanted to get the monstrosity out of the room and replace it with something a little nicer.

Mudroom Remodel DIY

One of the first parts of my kitchen remodel was to update my screen porch into a more usable mudroom to keep the clutter of shoes and jackets out of my kitchen. When I first bought my house, I added new carpet and a hand me down loveseat to make it a sitting area, but it became a catchall and didn’t serve a lot of purpose. The carpet often got dirty, and I didn’t want to keep nicer shoes and jackets on the porch since the screen door didn’t lock.

The goals for the remodel were to refresh the room to a more usable space. My plans included ripping up the carpet and replacing with tile, adding built in storage, lighting, and a door with a lock so the porch could serve as more of a true mudroom.
