Shower with Glass Wall Tile

Find Your Niche

The four walls of your bathroom are a box, and you have permission to think outside them. In fact, you can make holes in them. "Making use of the space inside the walls is one of the best ways to maximize storage in a small bath," Barnard says. This bath captures interior wall space for a shampoo and soap niche.

If you're working with an existing bath rather than remodeling or adding, you may not want to disturb a tiled bath or shower surround. But a space over a toilet or sink that's covered in drywall may present an opportunity for chic, seamless recessed shelving.
