Sufficient storage space in your bathroom can be a problem if you’re short on space. However, there are a number of ways to add storage and organize your bathroom without spending a fortune and without needing a lot of floor space. So, here are some simple storage tips for your bathroom to keep everything organised and clutter-free.
Create wall storage
When you have a small bathroom, storage cabinets take up a lot of floor space. Make use of your existing space and add simple wall storage to house your bathroom accessories. Not only will this create more floor space, but also offers a practical solution for storing your accessories and keeping items off the counter.
Look out for existing space
Don’t neglect the space in your bathroom especially above your toilet. This is a great spot for a cabinet, some built-in shelves or even just a basket for toiletries.
A narrow cabinet
Flexible storage spaces in your bathroom such as the space between your toilet and wall is prime real estate for storing goods. Try filling a narrow cabinet with all your toiletries and bathroom accessories to keep them hidden and make efficient use of your space.
Drawers or box inside bathroom cabinet
If you have a bathroom cabinet, place storage boxes or drawers inside it; units can be stacked one on top of each other to maximise storage space. Plus, they’ll help to keep your cupboards more organised so you won’t have to hunt around for the items you want.
Hang towels behind doors
If you haven’t got room for a towel rack, try hanging one on the back of your door to save space. This can be accomplished by purchasing good quality towel racks and using strong adhesive to stick them to the door.
Bathroom mirror storage case
A great space saver and not as difficult to incorporate as you might think, a storage case behind a mirror can keep your accessories out of sight while still being accessible. Items are hidden discretely behind a mirror and you can still make full use of the mirror.
Hair dryer holder
Clear space on your bathroom counter by hanging your hair dryer on the inside of the cabinet door. This will save space and save you time since it will be a lot easier to find.
Magnetic bathroom rack
If you live in one of those houses where there are bobby pins everywhere, then a magnetic bathroom rack could be a perfect solution. The magnetic strip will keep all those pins, files, clippers, scissors and tweezers off the counter and easy to find.
Install a vanity table with an in-built sink. Although this will be slightly bigger than a pedestal sink, its built-in drawers and concealed compartments provide generous storage all in one place.
Make use of organisers in cupboards
This is a practical solution to discretely store items like toilet rolls, cleaning products and other toiletries when you’re short on space. Simply attach the organiser to the inside of the cabinet door with adhesive hooks.
