Don’t overlook the doors for extra bathroom storage
The first storage area you’ll find (literally) when you open your bathroom is the door. Over-the-door storage can hold quite a bit of those essentials. And unless you’ve got pocket doors then the back of doors can be an ideal place to hold items you need more frequently.
Organized drawers provide great bathroom storage
I love drawer storage! Drawers hide items keeping them out of site and making any room look neater and less cluttered. The only problem is that sometimes drawers can become a jumbled mess too To solve that problem you need drawer organizers. What I like about this one is that it allows you to customize the cubbies you create in the drawer. When it comes to drawers…one size does not fit all needs.
Mini shelves add space where you need it
A problem at our house is that counter space is limited but there are items we use every day. Yes, we should put these items back in a drawer or counter after each use but let’s face it. Most of us are in a hurry and just don’t take the time. Both of these little shelves give you extra bathroom storage in a place you might otherwise overlook.
Take advantage of the space above the toilet
I’m always stunned at how often the area over the toilet is ignored – this is prime real estate! This is such an easy way to add storage to a small bathroom because every bathroom has wall space above the toilet. This makes a perfect place to store extra toilet paper, hygiene and personal products, extra toiletries, and towels. We often forget that vertical space can easily be turned into storage space when square footage is limited.
Wall storage can provide lots of options
Wall storage doesn’t have to look “bathroom-y” either. These fabric wall pockets would hold extra toiletries without taking up much space. Depending on your preferred style, you’ll find shelves that fit any decor in addition to providing that much needed bathroom storage. And simple Command Hook would suffice as the wall hanger which is a great when you can’t – or don’t want to – mess up the walls.
One of my favorite storage ideas!
An area most people don’t think about as potential storage is their shower curtain. I’ve written before about the mesh shower organizer and it’s one of my all-time favorite products. But I also like this shower curtain liner that has storage pockets actually built in. Both are great ways to store extra bottles of shampoo, body wash, kid’s toys, soaps, etc. I own the mesh liner and I LOVE it! Be sure to check out the mesh shower organizer product review.
Even adding just a couple of these ideas and products to your bathroom will help if function more efficiently and give you better storage space.
