The bathroom is a particularly good example of making space work for you if done well when using all the mod cons available today.

Let’s look at some of these options to see what the experts say about storage in modern bathrooms.

Making Use of Small Spaces

There are some really stylish storage units and ideas available that are made to fit into small spaces in bathrooms. Some of them can be done DIY while others in the form of racks, shelving and cabinets are designed for specific purposes to house the different accessories that are found in bathrooms.

All are designed to make use of space in such a way to make the bathroom easy on the eye, free flowing and not clogged with stuff. This could include unused areas above a door, in the shower or below the water basin.

Storage Tips in The Bathroom

The idea is to have a bathroom with a minimum clutter lying around with most of your stuff packed neatly away, being housed in the appropriate space provided. The neat look and the stylish finish are what is admired in a bathroom. Here are some of the storage units to consider:

Units, niches, and boxes

Narrow units that fit into small spaces extending from the floor to ceiling only occupy a small footprint on the floor while providing a lot of vertical opportunity to pack bathroom items. This is a great advantage when floor space in a bathroom is limited, as the slimline unit is perfect for storing a wide range of bathroom materials on a multi-level basis.

You can make them extremely attractive if you have an artistic bent, by adding glass shelves, or an olde-worlde look by using wood.

The creation of recesses in showers provide a super user-friendly niche for keeping shower gels, shampoos and conditioners, soaps and even ornaments. A perfectly positioned niche helps make these personal products easy to reach when showering and look great when incorporated in the style of the shower.

Decorative boxes which, depending on the style of the bathroom are also immensely popular. These stackable boxes can be made of leather, or plastic like PVC, wooden crates, or any design you feel will work in the bathroom.

The beauty of stackable boxes is that you can add or subtract according to your needs, and having an open look adds the chance to be able to display contents in them in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

Hanging Helps Create Extra Storage

A display of crisp white towels in a striking vertical metal towel rack is an easy way to store towels and display them in a bathroom. Free standing racks can be moved around as desired, or they can be fixed to the wall. Being thin and narrow, the folded towels plus the stand take truly little space. Designs could include racks made from ropes, wood, and steel or aluminium, depending on how you want to match the rack with the rest of the bathroom.

Over the door there is space for a floating rack for linens or towels that makes use of this otherwise vacant space.

Don’t underestimate the benefit of hooks in a bathroom. Wet towels are better hanging than on the floor, and hooks always have a use. Adding peg rails with hooks is a more decorative version that can be designed according to the style or theme being used, whether of wire, or wood they add that bit of extra interest in the bathroom.

Holders with pockets add a bright touch as they offer the opportunity to use bright cheerful materials to make them. The pocket hangers can accommodate shaving cream, deodorants, perfumes and even hairdryers. Hang a pocket holder on just one wall hook on the wall on a space that is not being used.


Space for a bathroom cabinet can be made above the basin and below it. The cabinet below the basin is useful for hiding all the bathroom plumbing, while its also space to hold more bulky things like cleaning materials, toilet rolls and less used stuff.

These are built in to incorporate the basin and a mirror, but there are also mobile versions which give you more flexibility when needed.

Other small holders include rotating makeup containers, trays, and holders for the likes of hairdryers which help ensure the neatness of the bathroom is maintained and reduces the number of loose items lying around.
