From large cherry cabinets to a sneaky storage niche in the combination shower and tub, this bathroom is the epitome of style and function. A pocket door with a frosted-glass panel has turned the master bath and adjoining full bath into a perfectly shareable space for both the homeowners and their guests. The door’s glass insert allows for both privacy and light between the two spaces.

Both the floor and shower area are covered in 12x24-inch ceramic tiles with a striated taupe pattern, while the remaining walls feature neutral paint and tiny mosaic tiles. A shower niche lined with the same mosaic tile carves out the perfect amount of storage for shampoos and body soaps.

Creative Medicine Cabinet
A reduced-depth wall cabinet serves as a space-saving medicine chest. Its reduced size takes up less room in the small space and was specially made to allow the homeowners to include their own custom glass shelving inserts. Lining the back of the cabinet with patterned wallpaper conveys the homeowners' personal style.

To compensate for the small stature of the wall cabinets, the homeowners chose to include a deeper-than-normal base cabinet on one side of the bath to provide plenty of room for curved multitier storage along the undersink plumbing. Additional stackable storage bins free up space for everyday items in the larger vanity in the master bath side of the room.

Stylish & Functional Vanity
Two wall cabinets and a sturdy kitchen base cabinet serve as a store-it-all vanity on the master bath side of the bathroom. Cherry cabinets with a chocolate-color glaze boost style while providing plenty of storage for makeup, grooming supplies, and linens. Quartz-surfacing countertops complement the tile on the walls and are sturdy enough to stand up to the humidity and spills that come with a bathroom environment.

Big Storage, Small Price Tag
Stock cabinets from a home center cost significantly less than custom units. These narrow wall cabinets are the perfect size for storing small toiletries, bath salts, and washcloths. The homeowners upped the pretty factor of these generic cabinets by covering the back of the unit and door with patterned wallpaper.

Graceful Glass Shelves
Glass shelving adds an understated air of elegance to any cabinetry. For this remodel, the homeowners ordered some cabinets “prepped for glass,” allowing them to insert their own textured glass shelving panels.

Drawer organizers aren’t just handy for the kitchen. Stainless-steel containers are perfect for storing heated items such as curling irons and hair straighteners. And a custom drawer organizer such as this one provides the perfect spot to store jewelry and hair accessories without fear of anything getting tangled together.

Portable Storage Idea
A plastic drawer caddy provides the perfect place to store small grooming items such as nail files, foot scrubbers, and polish. Small caddies fit easily into drawers and tight cabinet spaces, and the convenient handle on top makes them easy to transport.

Organization Made Easy
These drawers work overtime with custom-made organizers. The bottom caddy in this drawer is stationary and keeps grooming items and makeup neat and tidy. But the top caddy can roll back, allowing easy access to both the front and back half of the drawer.

Dark cherry cabinets with sleek metal hardware are both stylish and tremendously functional. Deep cabinet drawers like this one provide a great spot for towel storage and prevent the homeowners from having to store them in the master bedroom. To make the most of space, consider rolling the extra towels.

Generous storage in the master vanity holds everything from everyday items such as soap and toilet paper to cleaning supplies and a first aid kit. Plus, the roll-out shelf makes it easy for the homeowners to access every item, even ones in the back portion of the shelf.

Glass jars create an elegant style statement in any bathroom and create the perfect spot to store soaps and bath salts. If you want to display them prominently on the counter, look for colored items that will complement the color scheme of your bathroom.

Tilt-Out Drawer Space
The large master vanity was constructed using a trio of kitchen cabinets. The sturdy base cabinet features a handy metal-lined tilt-out drawer -- a common feature of kitchen cabinets -- that holds a toothbrush and other bathroom essentials.

Hooked on Storage
Satin-chrome finishes, such as the ones on these convenient towel hooks, tie together the two bathrooms’ hardware, fixtures, and accessories. Handy wall hangers such as these ensure towels dry quickly -- and better yet -- don’t end up in a heap on the floor.

Depths of Storage
Exposed legs give the cabinet’s base contemporary flair, while the vessel sink and wall-mount faucet increase the modern appeal. This deeper-than-normal model provides plenty of undersink storage designed to work around the plumbing.
