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?

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.

To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of the “Steampunk” art movement. If you aren’t familiar with Steampunk, it is a style of art that has its roots in the Victorian look. Picture that busy style and add in a bunch of found objects, a touch of technology and a splash of science fiction. Voila! Steampunk.
Some Steampunk creations are a little creepy to me. They include random metal parts, glass eyeballs from dolls, clothing – the range of “stuff” used in the artwork is amazing! While I LOVE using found objects and repurposing items (I do it all the time with furniture and other items), I tend to have a simpler aesthetic. However, I did find one artist whose work I could get on board with…
