Of all the rooms in the house, the bathroom needs to be the most clean and hygienic, which can’t happen without proper storage. Plus, the less clutter there is, the less chaotic you’ll feel, and the faster getting ready will be. Whether you’re looking for bathroom storage ideas for the master or a teeny, tiny powder room, you have options. If there is one thing we can all agree on, it is that there is always too much stuff in a bathroom and nowhere to put it.
Back of the Door
Storage is all about getting some value out of what used to be worthless space. If you have cabinet doors adding a hanging basket to the inside of each door will provide space for bulky items. Also over the door baskets lets you adjust the baskets to fit your needs.
Use High Places
Another previously worthless space may be high bathroom walls. Stacked shelves can create a useful and visually appealing space for common bathroom supplies high on an unused bathroom wall. Open shelving is less bulky than full cabinetry and can be an opportunity to show off clean towels. And a few decorative baskets to place items into and add a plant for ambiance.
In place of a simple towel rack place a towel ladder. They are becoming more and more popular. It can be a great option if you want to get more out of your wall space. Towel ladders have multiple rungs to hang multiple items on, some even come with a shelf built in for large items. You can try out several spots for towel ladders because you can move them around.
Repurpose Old Furniture
If you don’t want to install built-in shelves for whatever reason—renovation costs, rental limitations, or personal style—consider repurposing unconventional furniture, for example, an armoire. Traditional on its own but unexpected and quirky in a bathroom context, it provides extra storage while also making a style statement.
Full-Length Mirrors with Storage
There are so many full-length mirrors that are available with storage. So if you have an empty wall and want to add storage add the full-length mirror with shelving.
Put a Lazy Susan to Work
Putting a lazy susan inside of a vanity cabinet is a great idea for storing cleaning supplies, soaps, or lotions instead of pulling everything out of your vanity to see what’s hiding behind.
There are so many cabinet organizers available today. Consider putting a set of drawers inside your cabinet. Each drawer can be labeled so everything is neatly stashed away and easy to access.
Double Up on Shower Rods
Hang an extra shower rod behind the shower curtain rod and then put S- hooks or clips on the rod and hang baskets or extra shower caddies for additional storage. If you have children it would be a great place for bath toys.
Shower Corner Shelves
Many corner shelves are available today. Place the shelf against the wall in the middle of a row of tiles in the corner of your shower. They are usually available with an adhesive to install in the shower. They can provide multiple shelves without being in the way.
Use an Etagere
Another great way to introduce a ton of storage without having to drill into your walls for custom cabinetry and shelving is by adding an etagere.
