Do you have too many bathroom items and nowhere to store them? Are you in fear that every time you open a cabinet, closet or drawer in your bathroom you may have something fall out on you? If you answered yes to these questions, then keep reading as we share a list of five smart ideas to help keep your bathroom looking sharp, organized and clutter-free.
1. Wall Mounted Storage
There are many wonderful solutions for wall-mounted storage available today. A few fantastic ideas are wall-mounted crates, baskets, and cabinets. Each of these types of storage solutions can be used in different ways.
Wall-mounted baskets are attractive and very cost-effective. They can be used to store washcloths, rolled towels or small toiletry items.
Alternatives to wall-mounted baskets, that are also beautiful and won’t break your bank, are wall-mounted crates. Wall-mounted crates can be treated as frames, arranged in a beautiful composition on any bathroom wall. Once hung, these crates can be used to display bathroom décor or store small items.
For storing larger items, a wall-mounted cabinet with multiple compartments can help maximize every inch of space in your bathroom.
2. Storage Ladders
Another smart storage idea, which can also be very decorative, is the use of storage ladders. There are many different types of storage ladders to choose from. These ladders lean against a wall and can be used to hang multiple towels on each step.
There are also storage ladders that are more like shelves, which can be used to store and display small toiletry and bathroom décor items.
3. Custom Storage
If your search for the perfect storage solution fails, and you can’t find what you want, go custom. There are some extraordinary and clever ways a great designer can incorporate built-in bathroom storage solutions into your plan. A few ideas are:
- Hidden slide out compartments
- Built-in storage towers
- Custom shelving
All of these ideas can store small/large toiletry items, washcloths or rolled towels.
4. Additional Storage Ideas
If hanging baskets on the wall isn’t for you, a great idea is to use a basket either inside a bathroom vanity or on the floor in a corner. Baskets are a great way to help keep items organized inside your vanity, as well as a great place to store rolled towels or magazines.
Need a place to hang towels or robes? Install a few hooks in your bathroom. Hooks can be installed on a wall, over a tub, or behind a bathroom door.
5. Small Item Storage Ideas
No more rummaging through drawers to find a hair pin, tweezers or nail clipper. A clever idea we’ve recently seen for storing tiny items that can’t be efficiently contained in a basket or jar is to install a magnetic strip in your bathroom cabinet.
Once the magnetic strip is installed, you can then mount hair pins, tweezers, and nail clippers onto the magnetic strip. It’s a pretty cool idea, and one that will surely help keep those tiny items all in one convenient place!
