5 clever storage ideas for your bathroom

Is your bathroom starting to feel cluttered?

Depending on the size of the room, you may have no option but to put toiletries on the windowsill, toys around the bathtub, and towels in another room.

But the bathroom is supposed to be a calming space for you to get ready in the morning and unwind at the end of each day.

If you’re tired of sharing your bubble bath with the kid’s rubber ducks, or you’re always forgetting to grab your towel before heading into the shower, bring order to your space with these clever storage ideas…

1.    Wall-mounted bathroom cabinets

Some bathroom cabinets are designed to fit in tight spaces, whereas others are tall and can store items that are awkward shapes and sizes.

Fitting a cabinet on the wall is a convenient solution for keeping your bathroom tidy and organised. It’ll allow you to free up valuable floor space, too.

Mirror cabinets provide the practicality of a mirror – allowing you to see what you’re doing when you’re brushing your teeth, washing your face, and styling your hair – whilst keeping your toiletries tucked away neatly.

2.    Bathroom corner unit

Corners can be tricky spaces to work with, which explains why they’re often neglected in most bathrooms.

However, installing a corner unit will make the most of this otherwise wasted space –  providing you with somewhere to store everything from flannels and sponges to soap and cleaning products.

Even if your bathroom is on the small side, a corner unit won’t take up too much space, as it can be combined with your sink.

3.    Fitted furniture

Fitted bathrooms are a sleek and stylish solution for increasing storage space in your home.

Furniture can be attached to the floor and walls, providing a place to store toiletries, towels, and all your other bathroom essentials.

Cabinets and drawers can also be combined with a basin and back-to-wall toilet to make the most of your space, offering a seamless look at the same time.

Another great thing about fitted bathroom furniture is that it can conceal unsightly pipework, reducing visual clutter and providing a tranquil place to relax and unwind.

4.    Towel rail

A towel cupboard is perfect for storing hand towels and bath robes. However, if a cupboard is too cumbersome for your space, a towel rail is an excellent alternative.

Fresh towels can be folded and placed on the rack until they’re required, while those that are in use can be hung up on the rail.

Heated towel rails provide a combination of warmth and convenience – making it easier for you to reach your towels and ensuring they’re warm and cosy for you to dry your hands, face, or the rest of your body.

Towel rails and heated radiators come in various sizes, meaning you should have no problem finding one to suit your space and the needs of your family.

5.    Storage boxes and trays

Organising your bathroom needn’t break the bank – not when you can pick up affordable storage boxes and store your bathroom essentials and sanitary products together.

Though it depends on the size and layout of your room, these could easily be placed on your windowsill, inside a cupboard, or on top of your bathroom cabinets.

You may decide to fit a corner basket or shower tidy on the wall in your shower – ensuring your shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel are all within easy reach.

Alternatively, why not rest a bath tray over the edges of your bath? Not only is it perfect for storing your body wash, bubble bath, and razor, but it’ll also allow you to indulge in a good book and a glass of wine. If you wanted, you could even watch a film or TV show on your tablet.
