Maxed Out Bathroom Storage Bathroom Remodel

When we remodeled our main bathroom, storage was at the top of our need/want list. We decided to pack extra storage into every nook and cranny in this bathroom. The old bathroom pre-remodel had 96 inches of countertop with two sinks and eight doors underneath. Who needs 96 INCHES of countertop? And the storage underneath was a nightmare to organize - Not practical.
We decided that drawers were what we needed in the new bath. We searched high and low for bath vanities with drawers. Most offer two drawers, but a fake top drawer and the bottom drawer is cut out around the plumbing so you don't even get a full drawer. We kept coming back to the IKEA Rattviken vanity. It had two full drawers that were lined and compartmentalized. And the price with countertop was only $409 each.
We updated and customized the vanities with this Young House Love campaign hardware available at Home Depot. We added a vintage secretary piece of furniture in between the vanities and it added storage for guest towels on top, a pull down countertop for the times you need additional counter space and THREE MORE DRAWERS. We painted it Sherwin Williams Intellectual Gray and highlighted with gold.
We also opted for wall mounted medicine cabinets with a beveled edge for even more storage for toothbrushes and other items that are used daily.
The walls were stenciled with Modern Masters Matte Metallic in Brass and Oyster. The stencil is Rockin Roses from Royal Design Studio.

We got seven drawers with our remodel.

    Beautiful concept. One did you get Dan Aykroyd to go back in time bout twenty years to work on your bathroom? Just kidding, only a small resemblance there! It is a beautiful make over

    I simply love the look. I wish my bathroom was big enough to do this. Maybe in the next house.
