Stylish Bath Storage

Create an organized bathroom with good-looking storage solutions. Open shelves hold baskets filled with soap, candles, and other toiletries. Display nail polish and pretty perfume bottles on trays.

On Display

Decorative glass containers turn storage into decor. Display soap, sponges, and bath salts in pretty canisters on the countertop.

In the Basket

Cut clutter in a bathroom cabinet with baskets. Put like items in each one to stay organized. Use matching baskets for a cohesive look.

Add On Storage

Boost the storage potential in a bath with matching wardrobes. Use the top shelves for stacking towels and toiletries. Stow seldom used items in baskets on top of the cabinets. Baskets in the open lower shelf are ideal for extra toilet paper and towels. Hang hooks between the cabinets to keep towels off the floor.

A Place for Everything

Trays and dividers keep bathroom shelves organized. Put all the supplies for doing your nails in one tray and spa accessories in another. Dividers keep the trays from getting cluttered. Label the trays so you know what belongs in each tray.

Undersink Solutions

Utilize the space under the bathroom sink with a pullout storage caddy. Use containers to organize styling utensils, nail products, and jewelry. Illuminate the area with battery-operated, stick-on lights.

Optimize the area under your bathroom sink with easy additions and storage ideas.

Countertop Solutions

A double vanity gets a storage boost with a countertop cabinet. Keep clutter at bay and store toothbrushes, styling products, and other grooming accessories in drawers and cabinets. A divider in the open lower shelf keeps towels organized.

Shelf Life

Make every inch count in a small bath. Use a narrow shelf under a vanity to store extra bath towels and washcloths.

Built-In Storage

Enhance bathroom storage with built-ins. Use open shelves to hold everyday items. Store cotton swabs and cotton balls in glass canisters and keep washcloths in baskets. Stash cleaning supplies out of sight in the lower cabinet.

Floating Shelves

Supplement your medicine cabinet with additional shelves next to the unit. Glass shelves almost disappear against tiled wall. Pretty glass jars and decorative containers hold lotion, soap, and other toiletries. 

Order in the Closet

Put every inch of a linen closet to work. Make room for extra towels, toilet rolls, cleaning supplies, and sheets on shelves that go all the way to the ceiling. Label containers so you know where everything belongs. Hang a towel bar over the door for additional storage.

Solve Storage Problems

A single vanity accommodates two people with hardworking storage solutions. Shallow cabinets flank the mirror and help keep the space clutter-free.

Double Duty

Add a bench in a bath for extra storage. A cushion covered with terry cloth offers a convenient place to dry off. The built-in drawer holds extra towels and toiletries.

Spa-Like Details

Carve out a spot for loofas, bath salts, and bubble bath in a recessed niche above the bathtub. A sleek shelf sits over the tub, the perfect spot to rest a container of lotion or a cup of tea.  

Divided Drawers

Keep makeup organized with drawer inserts. You'll never dig for your favorite color again when you have a specific spot for lip gloss, eye shadow, and mascara.

Create Space

Store items you use every day like lotion, towels, and mouthwash in a cabinet next to the sink. Don't overload the shelves. It is easier to stay organized when you limit the number of items on each shelf.

Crystal Clear

A built-in cabinet behind a soaking tub keeps towels, soaps, and sponges within reach. Glass doors and shelves make the cabinet feel light and airy.

Clear Caddy

Keep everything you need for an at-home manicure organized in a handy storage caddy. Pull it out of the cabinet when you need it, then put it away when you're finished.

Make It Work

A custom cabinet between two pedestal sinks means you can have the style of a pedestal along with the function of a vanity. A shallow upper cabinet offers counter space. Recessed medicine cabinets above the sinks supplement storage.

Space Saver

Make the most of the small space in front of the sink and install a narrow pullout. It's a great spot to stash a toothbrush, toothpaste, and deodorant.
