Open shelving – Open shelves is one of the best ways to create flexible storage space in the bathroom.

You may also install open shelves on the corner of the shower area, and you can use it, specifically for storage of items to be used during the bath. If there is a bathtub installed in the bathroom, the idle wall next to the tub can be used to create a vertical storage space. The bottom shelves can be used to store shampoo bottles, soap, etc and the top shelves can be used to store towels, linen, etc.
