Multi-Purpose Bathroom Fixtures

Practically everyone has a bathroom that is just too small. I know I have one – and it drives me crazy! A bathroom is meant to be functional, and those with inadequate space can be incredibly frustrating, especially when they need to get a lot of use (think: the shared kids’ bathroom, your too-small master bath, or the half-bath that’s your only main-floor bathroom).

Luckily, bathroom fixtures are now more efficient than ever! Check out these double- (or more) duty pieces that can make your bathroom more comfortable, spacious, and even luxurious – did you ever think that tiny space could actually be opulent?

Combine your sink or vanity with a towel bar and/or storage. Just because you’re confined to a small sink doesn’t mean you need to give up your storage space!

If you have space to mount a separate towel bar, make it a heated one so that you can have the luxury of warm towels when you get out of the shower.

When you’re really tight on space, you want to conserve as much of it as possible. Try combining commonly-used items for more space throughout the bathroom. This butler cleverly holds four bathroom essentials – soap, toilet brush (included), toilet paper, and towels – in one sleek, slim, minimalist tower:

That’s the definition of multi-tasking right there! It measures under eight inches wide.

Everyone knows that the right mirror, especially a frameless one, can make a bathroom look more spacious. This mirror not only creates an illusion of space, it actually frees up more space by integrating powerful, customizable (with dimmer ballast, side diffuser, and nightlight options) lighting designed to illuminate the entire bathroom!

It comes in lots of sizes to fit every bathroom.

If you don’t have room for a separate magnifying mirror but use one regularly for makeup application or shaving, try a mirror with an integrated magnifier:

Your mirror can do a lot more than just reflect – use it to conceal storage space with this ingenious medicine cabinet:

This cabinet truly does it all. It can be surface-mounted or recessed (fully or semi) and it opens vertically, a huge plus when space is limited. The door can be held in any position to allow simultaneous mirror and cabinet use. It lights automatically when opened and may be customized with a defogger, night light, sconces or pendants, special shelves, TV mount, and/or a pull-out magnifying mirror.

Make your shower work hard for you! If you have a tub/shower combination, the logical solution would be a combination tub and shower set. Mount it to the wall for even more space efficiency:

Rather than cluttering your shower floor or tub deck with shampoo and soap bottles, try a multi-function shower caddy. This wall-mounted one holds all of your essentials and includes a mirror for in-shower shaving.

While you’re at it, get a caddy for your tub and enhance your baths – try one that can hold a book (no more wet pages!), tablet or e-reader (for the technologically-inclined among us), bath supplies, even a glass of wine. Ahhh.

Even your toilet can multi-task! You can have the luxury of a bidet without having to install another space-eating fixture – invest in a washlet or even just a washlet seat.
