storage solution: under the sink

December 5, 2011

One way to tackle the storage space beneath your bathroom or kitchen sink is to put in a bank of drawers. Drawers are one way to ensure that you’re using every inch of cabinet space since you can pull them all the way out (with the help of full-extension glides) and get to the very back and bottom of the cabinet.

In this bathroom, we designed a bank of drawers under this sink. The top ‘drawer’ is false, while the second one is cut in a U shape to accommodate the plumbing. The bottom drawer is full-sized with a notch cut out of the very back, and it’s deep enough to store toilet paper, bottles of shampoo standing up, bathroom cleaners and other toiletries.

If installing a drawer under a sink, make sure that it is U-shaped to accomodate the plumbing.

    Love, love, love! Any way to increase storage under a sink is great in my book. And, I think drawers are essential in a bathroom; they are much more convenient than deep cabinets for small things like toothpaste and hair brushes.

    I would also use this application for the “spa” cabinets many clients request right now. These often have an open shelf below the sink, which is a great look, but cuts out a lot of valuable storage. With this cut-out drawer, you could do both!

    What do you think? Is this something you would put in your home?
