One of the best ways to keep our homes organized is to take full advantage of existing storage opportunities…even when they are hiding in plain site!

Creating Three Types Of Storage With One Cabinet

orV is for

There’s a secret storage opportunity lurking in nearly every kitchen.  The humble wall mounted cabinet.  At 12″ deep, and ranging from 24″-42″ high, a wall cabinet with multiple interior shelves offers endless storage options.  Hang standard size cabinets off the floor for a custom look with a space to organize neatly below and a useable counter above.  One cabinet with three types of storage!

Ideas For Extra Storage In The Bedroom

Oh how we love our bedrooms!  No other room in our home takes care of us as much as our sleeping chamber.  Why don’t we carve out more function with a small table and chair?  Placed by a window, we have loads of natural light for make-up.  What about a private place to use a laptop or iPad?  In many of our designs, we will use a table in lieu of a night stand.  Plenty of room for a lamp and all the things we love to unwind with.

Some time ago we archived this photo of a wall mounted mirrored jewelry cabinet.  Although this one is no longer available, something similar , that can be wall mounted, is a wonderful way to help us stay organized.

Wall Mounted Bathroom Storage

We talk about bathroom storage often because no one ever says…“I have more space in my bathroom than I need!”  Look at this tall, narrow, wall mounted cabinet discreetly hung above the commode.  Just think of all the small products that could be in full view yet hidden and organized.

However, one of our favorite wall mounted bath storage cabinets, is the Kohler unit above.  This guy is a great size at 30″ w x 26″ h and has mirrors inside and out.  The 5″ depth allows for a recess mount, or with their mirrored end panels, a surface mount looks equally as smashing.  Best of all is the reasonable cost of the Kohler units compared to others than can easily creep into the thousands.

  1. Nancy had a great bathroom cabinet with the mirror on the inside at her old place. It was the best!!

    1. I like to get up close so often we do not mount these over a sink but on a wall with good light. Old eyes look better when done up close!

  2. I’ve been thinking of adding a small 4″ deep wall cabinet on the other side of the wall that separates my sink and my toilet….perfect spot for all those small items like nail polishes/hand lotions/cotton balls, hair products, etc. Put a door on it and nothing gets dusty! Make it tall enough like your picture of the dark-stained cabinet and it would be perfect! I added a cabinet without doors that’s 4″ wide and has three shelves to the side of my center island in my kitchen…it holds numerous spices and small vinegar bottles right in plain view…love it!
