How to increase your bathroom storage
Storage is always in demand, no matter what the size of your bathroom. With such a wide array of health and beauty products, medicines, towels and more, often finding their home in the bathroom, it is unsurprising good storage is a necessity. To avoid cluttering the space – particularly in smaller rooms – perfecting the balance of out of sight and accessible is also key. With this in mind, we have put together some useful ways you can create extra storage space in your bathroom.
Fitting extra shelves in your bathroom can be a fantastic way to create some extra storage space. Shelves can be particularly useful in small rooms where floor space is at a premium. Under-utilised spaces which could become useful with the installation of shelving include over the back of the toilet, over and under the sink and at the end of the bathtub.
Turning your shelving into a 2-in-1 storage solution is also a good trick. For example, you could attach a towel rail or hooks under a sturdy shelf to give you hanging space for bathroom bits and pieces.
Top tip: to avoid cluttering, getting some storage boxes or baskets to organise your toiletries can keep your shelves looking nice and neat.
Shelving isn’t the only way to use your walls instead of floor space. There are many bathroom accessories which can come in wall-mounted form. Some examples of wall fittings which can free up surface space include soap dishes, toothbrush holders, toilet roll holders and storage baskets. Some of these can simply be stuck to your walls, meaning you don’t need to do any serious DIY for this storage fix.
Back of the door
The back of your bathroom door is another often underused space. Especially in a small room, your door can take up a large chunk of wall space so it makes sense to try and use it. Adding towel rails to the back of the door is a good idea as it can help you keep towels clean and dry without preventing the door from opening fully. Hooks which you can hang toiletry bags, makeup bags or slim shower caddies from are another clever choice.
A mirrored bathroom cabinet – particularly useful above your sink – can have both the benefit of reducing surface clutter and making a room appear bigger. You likely won’t want all your bathroom belongings on display and a classic medicine cabinet is, therefore, the perfect cupboard space solution. The addition of the mirror is useful and will also create the illusion of depth in your room – particularly welcome for making a small bathroom feel larger.
A hanging shower caddy can be very useful for storage and organising your shower products. Although often underestimated, a caddy will keep all your products upright, easily reachable and tidy instead of being spread in disarray across your bath or shower, accumulating grime.
