Open storage could be a fabulous option for your bathroom

Your bathroom is one of the most frequently-used spaces in your home, but oftentimes it can be the most cramped as well. Storage is always at a premium in these rooms, so wall-mounted options like medicine cabinets, linen cabinets and shelves are all the rage. But, if you don't like the look of your new furnishings when their doors are closed, HGTV suggests you should take them off and open them up.

In addition to giving you another spot to store toiletries, storage baskets and other washroom needs, it is also a blank slate to decorate with. Use the added space to hold a few photo frames, antiques or other small decorations.

If you think the shelving unit is a bit too boring on its own, consider taking it down and using wallpaper to line the backing. This will introduce another set of bright hues into the room and it's a craft project you can complete in a weekend.

With the many wall-mounted options available, there are countless ways you can reinvent your washroom to make it less cluttered. What storage tips do you have for those with a tiny bathroom?
