Where is your garbage can in master bath?

Hi, everyone. We are finalizing our vanity and masterbath selections. One thing I have always disliked in our previous masterbath,, was an ugly garbage can in full view. I could remedy this by putting it into our vanity as a pullout, but I hate to lose valuable storage space with a garbage. We have a toilet behind a privacy wall but the wall to wall space where the toilet resides is like 36" with a toilet, not much space for tucking away. Do you have any suggestions?

I decided to put mine under the sink with a pull out on the floor of the vanity. I solved some of the storage loss by putting a cabinet over the toilet which is recessed between the studs. I didn't want to worry about hitting heads on a cabinet, but wanted more storage. I can't stand to look at an open wastebasket, so that was my solution.

Same here, in my master bathroom i put the garbage in the vanity cabinet. Since i had added under cabinet drawers the storage had become alot more efficient anyway and the loss of space wasn't a problem. In the family bathroom the garbage is out in the open next to the toilet because I don't think my son will open the door to throw something away!

we also have it in vanity cabinet... i wasn't necessarily planning it there, but there was no convenient place to tuck it away after remodel and we have plenty of storage space. i love it there!
