Does your bathroom feel cramped, cluttered and claustrophobic? Are your surfaces overflowing with toiletries, towels and toys? Claim your Little Bathroom Victories with these clever storage ideas.
When your bathroom is drowning in clutter, it certainly isn't the most relaxing place in which to spend time. Whilst you may have already considered fitting a mirror cabinet or vanity unit, there are some less obvious options you may not have thought of. Using our own knowledge and expertise, we've come up with these 6 clever bathroom storage ideas to restore order in your home.
1. Bathroom corner unit
One space which often gets completely neglected is the corner of your bathroom. Corners can be tricky spaces, especially when it comes to bath storage, but they can be used to your advantage. A bathroom corner unit utilises this space perfectly, by combining your basin with a cupboard space.

2. Wall mounted tall cabinet
Keeping your floor space clear can often be the first step on the road to bathroom storage redemption. If a mirror cabinet or small bathroom storage cabinets simply won't cut it, a tall wall mounted cabinet could be just the solution, especially if you have awkwardly-shaped and tall objects you need to store.
