Tackling the bath storage next

We noticed very soon that many RV owners had a problem with hanging towels in the bathroom. Ours was an easy fix.  We simply added a 3×14 inch poplar board stained to match the woodwork and placed 2 bronze double hooks from Home Depot on it. We placed this 6 in. down from the ceiling on the short wall beside the bath door and above the heat vent. Bingo – towels hang out of the way, within reach of the shower and dry easily before the next use. A large plastic hook from Target was sprayed with oiled bronze paint then placed over the shower wall next to the toilet allowing for a place to hang your clothes when dressing.

Inside the medicine cabinet we placed 3 of the long narrow plastic baskets from Dollar Store after we lined each shelf with padded shelf liner. This corrals all the bottles and jars and prevents surprises when you open the door.

We even added a shelf in the linen cabinet behind the toilet to provide better storage of towels and bath rugs. Goodness, the little area is only 5 inches deep but very tall so needed to maximize all of it.

Final fix was more of a challenge because of the limited access under the sink. The large area did not allow for maximum use so we added a baltic birch stained shelf 1/2 way down. Had to come in from the outside on the right with small screws and nuts to hold narrow support board in place but could screw into left wall easily. The shelf had to allow for plumbing to pass behind it but still provides a great place to put two plastic bins from Target with drawers to store various travel size toiletries and still allows for cleaning products and chemicals to sit below on the floor area. You probably have noticed by now this requires very careful measuring since all Keystone cabinets are odd shaped and have little ins and outs at the corners.  We had to remember the old carpenter’s rule, measure twice-cut once!
