The bathroom is a place to get a relaxing bath after a long day, so it should be one of the tidiest rooms in the house. But the bathroom can often be one of the most cluttered places, with towels on the floor and rogue toiletries scattered all over the place. To get it in order, you need to implement some storage solutions. Even if the room isn’t large, there are plenty of techniques you can use to save space.
Here are some helpful storage ideas for the bathroom.
Over the Door Shelf
Are you using all the space above your bathroom door? Chances are you’re not. Get a shelf installed above the doorframe to store items like towels and linens. It keeps them within reach while freeing up plenty of space for you to use elsewhere. It could also be used to surplus cleaning products and toiletries.
Ladders are a great way to store items while keeping them tucked well away. A ladder can be used to hang the likes of towels and baskets full of extras like toilet paper and toiletries. It does not take up too much space, making it an ideal choice for small bathrooms.
While cupboards are a great place to store the likes of cleaning products or toiletries, it can be difficult to get to what you need if it buried somewhere at the back, causing you to pull everything out just to get to what you want. Consider implementing a turntable into your cupboard to stack your products, so you can simply spin it around to reach what you need, keeping everything much more organised.
Inner Door Storage
Cabinets and cupboards offer plenty of storage space, but you can get even more out of them with a bit of creative thinking. The back of the doors offer so much underutilised space. With a few hooks or baskets, you can discover a whole new way to store your belongings. You don’t even have to install anything, as you can get hooks that drape over the top of the door with no nails or drills required.
Floating shelves are a great way to not only store belongings, but they look incredibly stylish. They can be installed virtually anywhere to hold the likes of extra towels, soap, or even just decorative elements like plants.
Bring in Baskets
Baskets make a great storage solution for bathrooms because they can hide not-so-pretty bathroom items like extra toilet paper and cleaning products stylishly. They can be utilised on the floor, on shelves, hanging from the wall, under the sink or pretty much anywhere! Available in a vast range of colours and styles, there will be some storage baskets perfect for your bathroom.
There are plenty of small metal gadgets in a bathroom that can easily be misplaced or clutter up the sink. Consider installing a magnetic strip on the wall or shelf for items like nail clippers, tweezers, and hairpins to keep them out the way in a place where you will always be able to find them when you need them.
Items like makeup and skincare products can take up a lot of shelf space and cause clutter. Utilise levels in your bathroom to help clear up some space. With a bathroom caddy, you can store small items that take up a lot of room next to the sink to make your space look so much cleaner and less cluttered.
Integrate more storage into your shower space to keep those shampoo and conditioner bottles organised. You can add hanging shelves or built-in shelves to the wall to create more space in your bathroom and make washing a breeze.
Trays for Small Items
A simple solution to all those small items like nail clippers and eyeliner pens is to utilise a tray. Find a tray that matches the décor of your bathroom and keep it next to the sink or on a shelf to house those items that are prone to going walkabouts.
