7. The tiny gaps between the pieces of wood making up this bathroom shelf make sure that if water does make it’s way down there, it won’t pool and soak whatever you have sitting on the shelf.

8. A shelf underneath your bathroom counter eliminates the need to store your towels in a linen closet away from the bathroom and makes sure you never have to call for someone to bring you a towel.

17. The shelf under the sink doesn’t have to run the full length of the counter, as seen in this bright bathroom. Leaving a bit of space between the end of the shelf and the end of the counter creates the perfect spot for either a trash can or a laundry basket.
