4 Ways to Use Bathroom Baskets

Using bathroom baskets is a great way to store everything in the bathroom including hand towels, toilet paper, hand soap, toiletries, and all sorts of small essentials.


Wicker baskets are the perfect bathroom storage accessory -- they're easy to transport, and they contribute to a sense of cleanliness and order. To keep pretty washcloths and extra hand towels within easy reach, store them in a small basket close to the sink. Bigger baskets are perfect for storing hair products, accessories, and styling tools.

Basket storage makes any bathroom look neat and tidy. As you select baskets for your space, make sure you take into account the material. Wooden baskets are perfect for holding dry items, such as toilet paper, towels, and cleaning products. But metal or plastic varieties are more suited for items that retain water, such as sponges and soap. Metal or plastic baskets are also great for under-the-sink storage, as they can stand up to moisture that comes from pipes.

To make use of potentially wasted bathroom space -- like under a window seat -- consider filling the space with a few storage baskets. Because the baskets are so low to the ground, they become a great place to store infrequently used bathroom items, such as pumice stones and bath salts. To ensure everything stays in its spot, purchase -- or make your own -- labeled basket liners.

If you have limited shower shelf space, consider using metal baskets to create small shower caddies. The tiny baskets are easy to carry and offer a great way to separate everyone's bathroom essentials. Easily attach waterproof labels using nothing more than a decorative bulldog clip.
