The bathroom, often a small room where there must be a thousand things.
How many times have we thought: "In this bathroom there is nothing left, I have to find a solution!" 

To make this space cozy, bright and above all tidy the use of shelves becomes indispensable, as they are an excellent space-saving support surface, where you can place everything you need with ease.

Where can shelves be placed for functional furniture?

Next to the sink:

The most practical solution is definitely next to the sink, where you can place the most used products for daily care, such as toothbrush, toothpaste, face cream and perfume.

The suspended shelves are ideal to be placed next to the mirror or all around it to create a design niche, which helps you optimize the available space with an elegant and original touch.

Above the bath:

To give an extremely modern touch of furniture you can use them for the support of towels, robes or towels well folded and exposed, along with your favorite soap, some essential oil to moisturize the skin and a scented candle, to turn on for a moment of relaxation all yours.
A great solution to gain valuable space and create a comfortable and beautiful place to see!

Which material to choose for our design shelves?

The choice of materials in the market is very wide: from glass, to wood, to metal; there is plenty of choice.

It all depends on the furnishing style of your home: for a more classic environment the ideal material is undoubtedly wood with its refined grain and a warm and soft texture.

If you want to give your bathroom a modern imprint with a contemporary design, as we like, the ideal material is definitely the metal: smooth to the touch is easy to clean, does not deteriorate with hot water steam and is extremely resistant, ensuring a long life.
