IKEA cutting boards add much needed counter space to my small bathroom for only $18.
My home has a “cozy” taupe-colored guest bathroom with a white pedestal sink in a nook that’s only 39” wide…with no sink counter.
I needed counter space for people to put their stuff AND something to help hide the litter box that’s below the sink. I also wanted something that would not hinder the litter box and allow it to breathe while maintaining its easy access.
Buying a bathroom cabinet was out of the question for this tiny space as it would just make the space feel even smaller. I needed some type of shelving. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money nor did I want to create something that was custom. Whatever was going to live there needed to look like it belonged and blend with the space.
I took minimum and maximum measurements around the sink and then the search was on. I was rewarded when I came across the IKEA APTITLIG bamboo chopping board. They’re beautiful, sturdy, fit the style of the bathroom, finished, easy to clean and only $8 each! But the absolute best part is that they fit perfectly in the space as is.
I grabbed 4 black IKEA EKBY STÖDIS L-brackets, at only $0.50 each, and we were done.
We already had screws, leaving us with a grand total of $18.00 for our lovely new sink counters.
