6 clever bathroom storage ideas

Posted by Adam Chard in Inspiration | 2 years ago 6 min read

Does your bathroom feel cramped, cluttered and claustrophobic? Are your surfaces overflowing with toiletries, towels and toys? Bring order to your space 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.

3. Fitted bathroom furniture

Why let your kitchen have all the fun when it comes to fitted furniture? It may not be something you've ever considered, but fitted bathroom furniture is just one of those very clever small bathroom storage ideas that could be more than ideal for your space. Cleverly integrating your basin and toilet, fitted furniture provides a seamless look and feel to your bathroom decor, whilst maximising the space you have available.

4. Slimline unit or bathroom towel cupboard

Towels and linen can take up loads of space, especially in that awkward moment between being used and being washed. So, why not make room for them in your bathroom with a simple storage unit? It can easily double up as towel/toilet roll space for small bathrooms—perfect for when visitors come to stay.

5. Washstand and storage boxes

Incredibly simple yet incredibly effective, storage boxes are a quick and easy way to keep toiletries and smaller items together in one place. More versatile than small bathroom storage cabinets, they look perfect when combined with a contemporary washstand.

These gorgeous storage boxes (pictured below) feature a distressed wood finish and delightful slogans for a bathroom that is both clutter-free and full of character.

6. Bathroom towel racks

Again, if you can spare the space, walls are the way to go. If a bathroom towel storage cupboard is too cumbersome, bathroom towel racks are a great option, providing you with a useful place to store fresh towels and hang those in use. This is especially suitable for family bathrooms and can come in handy when guests (eventually!) come to stay. We've got both contemporary and traditional options to suit your bathroom decor.
