To start the topic of storage ideas for small bathrooms, one thing you can do is use your walls to a maximum. Putting up shelves will be one of the first things that comes to mind. Get creative with it. Just be careful not to overdo it and make the space look clamped up. You can install floating shelves above your toilet where you can place towels, toilet paper, and other bathroom essentials. Adding hooks to the walls is also a great storage solution for small bathrooms. Hooks are great for hanging towels, robes, and other items that need to air dry. If you are lacking wall space, you can also use a tension rod to hang items from the ceiling.

Make the most of your under-the-sink storage

Another great storage idea for small bathrooms is to organize your under-the-sink storage neatly and with some creativity. Most bathrooms have a vanity with a cabinet underneath the sink. This is a great place to store cleaning supplies, toiletries, and other items that you don’t need to access frequently. Consider using bins or baskets to have more space for storing your items inside the cabinet. You can also add a tiered organizer, so you can use the vertical space. Add hooks to the cabinet door to hang items such as cleaning gloves or smaller towels.

For those of you who don’t have an under-the-skin storage in their bathrooms, here are some ideas on how to use the free space! First, you can add a storage cart. Place storage bins or baskets on it to open up even more room in your small bathroom. You can keep toilet paper, soaps, cleaning supplies, towels, and any other miscellaneous items there. The storage cart can be moved around easily, and can be tucked away when not in use. If not a cart, consider adding labelled drawers under your sink. This will help you find the items you need easier. And lastly, you can place a towel rack under your sink where you can neatly stack hand and bath towels.

You can even label them to know which one holds the item you are looking for. Make the most of the space you do have, and you will never have to worry again about where to store things in your bathroom!

Often, a lot of corners in your bathroom might get overlooked, and you deem them as useless. But there are some creative ideas on how to also use that space for storing that would surprise you! For starters, have you ever thought of hanging an over-the-door floating shelf where you can store your bathroom items? You can create an organizing space by placing baskets or just staying with the shelves, and stack towels, or shampoos and conditioners. For the walls around your shower, you can hang a shower caddy. A shower caddy is a great way to store all of your shower essentials in one place. Hang one from the shower head or from a hook on the wall. This will keep your items close at hand and help you keep your bathroom clutter-free.
