Bathrooms equal small spaces, high humidity, and lots of stuff. Here are clever ideas to order the chaos without breaking the bank.
A simple pair of floating shelves under a window adds personality and storage to an otherwise awkward space. Use the unit to display decor items, such as pretty perfume and bath oil bottles, along with extra linens.
Hang an over-the-door bin specifically for styling tools to get them off the counter and within easy reach. If you put away hot blow dryers or flat irons, ensure the storage basket you choose will stand up to the heat.
If you have countertop space around your sink, add a tray or platter to keep frequently used toiletries at hand. Cups or vases creatively hold brushes and combs while freeing up space for other essentials.
Set a large woven basket next to the sink or on an open shelf for instant storage. Stock it with plenty of fresh, fluffy towels to add soft texture to the space.
Simple shelves and hooks help organize the bath and keep essentials off the countertops and floors. Easy-to-assemble shelves are available at home centers, and hooks are an inexpensive way to hang towels and robes.
Wood crates get a new life as a storage system thanks to a coat of bright paint and smart configuration. Brackets hold the boxes together, and a few screws into the studs keep the solution sturdy.
If space is tight but you need storage, consider a small furniture piece. Balance a freestanding sink with a shelving unit of equal height. Add a makeup vanity between two pedestal sinks for a comfy spot to primp. Top the unit with a decorative accent, or use the top as extra counter space.
Repurpose household items as clever bathroom storage. Here, a refurbished cabinet offers practicality, color, and character by housing towels and bath necessities. Decorative jars are just right for storing smaller items, such as cotton swabs and cotton balls.
A simple cube storage unit, commonly used in home offices, can be an inexpensive way to add extra storage. Adapt a standard piece to be more bathroom-friendly by adding towel hooks and a variety of bins to corral small items.
Slide canvas-lined wicker baskets, metal bins, or other containers under your sink to make good use of the real estate. Employ the side of your vanity by installing a small towel bar or hooks for hand towels.
Organize hand towels and other bath necessities close to the tub by utilizing space between studs for built-in shelves. This ensures fresh, clean towels and other toiletries are always within reach.
