Storage Solutions for your Bathroom

Bathrooms are an essential space in the home that extend themselves to your self-care and hygiene. Especially if you have a bathroom which is on the smaller side, clutter and disorganisation can take hold and make your self-care time not feel so good. Here are some tips and tricks to keep all the items you need to in your bathroom organised, without feeling overwhelmed.

Install Shelves Above Your Toilet

The wall space above your toilet will not be used for anything else, so why not get some free storage out of it? There are many units you can purchase which come already designed for installation in this particular place.

This space also isn’t being used for any other purpose in your bathroom- unless of course, you enjoy looking at a blank, bare door! Who says storage units are only for walls? Some storage door racks are super easy to put in; they come with hinges that hang right over the top of the door. And presto! You have a special place to keep your bathroom items. They usually come with caddies, as well as hooks for hanging things like bathrobes or towels.

There is so much unused space just between the top of its frame and the ceiling above it. Installing a shelf in that space is a great way to utilize it and keep those items which you don’t need for everyday use. For example, you can put special decorative items there or even extra guest towels. It is also perfect for storing things which you want to keep out of the way of children and pets. 

Shower Organizers

Showers usually take up a whole wall and a large portion of the bathroom, in terms of ratio. You don’t want clusters of shampoo bottles and old soap scattered at your feet. It will affect the overall feeling of clutter in the bathroom, not to mention, it is quite hazardous. 

With sufficient shower organizer units, you can keep any extra stock of your soapy goods in the shower itself, and make more room in your bathroom’s cabinets and drawers.

All bathrooms have mirrors. Make the most of that space above the sink, and extend that mirror further to put things behind it. It works particularly well to place several shelves inside of it so you can stash many small items there. Take it one step further, and adhere hooks to the door of that medicine cabinet for extra little things like hair accessories. Attaching a magnetic strip there can make for a fun, easy way to hold small metal tools like tweezers and nail clippers too.

Get Creative

When it comes to maximising storage, especially in a small space, you have to be innovative and make the most of what you’ve got. The effort will be well worth it, as you will feel much better when everything has its place. All you need is to take the time to think about what works best for you and your space.
