Our main floor bathroom, is extremely small... Like teeny, tiny. Don't get me wrong. It's not the smallest bathroom I've ever seen, but it sure is tiny for the main bathroom in the house. We do have a second bathroom upstairs, but that's used mostly as a guest bathroom and storing anything we don't need day-to-day. So, we made some minor changes to this bathroom to make every inch a little more functional, and I wanted to share them with you.

One of the first things we did was rip out the second medicine cabinet and add two shelves above the toilet. This small change was a major step to making this bathroom a little more functional, since now we can store some towels (and my makeup :)) in the bathroom now. I bought the pre-made shelves and brackets from Lowes, and the project cost less than $50.
Last month I bought plastic shoe drawers, and put them under our sink. I also have a metal file box, which is where I store my hair styling tools (straightener, hair dryer, curling irons, etc.). These drawers have been helpful to store things that we might not use every day, but we still need easy access to like extra q-tips, nail clippers, thermometers, and first-aid items. I love these little guys. It's super easy to find things under our sink now. I would definitely recommend the ones with the drawer over one with a lid, because it makes getting into the ones on the bottom a lot easier. Plus, I really like being able to use the vertical space under the sink, which makes the part of me that wants to use every square in of our house efficiently very happy.
