Bathroom Storage Hacks That Will Impress You

Toilet Paper Shelf

Here’s a clever idea for a small bathroom shelf. Build or buy a deep picture frame and hang it around your toilet paper holder. It will give you two convenient shelves for small items in your bathroom where every inch of storage counts.

Back of Cabinet Doors

The back of your cabinet doors are a highly overlooked surface to utilize. Install this metal mesh bin on the inside of the cabinet and use it for cleaning supplies trash bags and more. Install one on the inside of the vanity cabinet under the sink in your bathroom to store your hair dryer, extra shampoo, conditioner and soaps.

PVC Curling Iron Holsters

Hate the messy look of curling irons lying on the vanity or the toilet tank? Here’s a tip for you. Use hook-and-loop tape to attach 5-in. lengths of 2-in.- diameter PVC pipe to the vanity door to hold the curling irons.

Do the same thing with 3-in. pieces of 1-1/2-in.-diameter pipe to hold the cords. Just measure your curling irons to see how long your ‘holsters’ need to be. Let your curling irons cool before you stow them away.

Hang a Shelf Over Your Towel Bar

For some reason, once the towel bar goes up, we don’t consider the wall usable for anything else. Why not hang a shelf for toiletries and decorative items? Just make sure to mount the shelf high enough so it allows easy access to your towels.

Swinging Trash

Here’s a space-saving solution to the bathroom waste-basket problem. Screw wire shelf anchor clips to the inside of the door and hook the lip of a small wastebasket right on the hooks. It’s easy to use, it hides unattractive trash, and it frees up precious bathroom floor space.

Bathroom Drawer Insert from the Kitchen

Cabinets and drawers in the bathroom can become cluttered and disorganized very quickly because of all of the small items that need to be stored there. To keep bathroom drawers neat and organized, look no further than the kitchen! You can use a silverware drawer insert to organize a bathroom drawer, too.

The long compartments in a silverware organizer are the perfect size for storing toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste. Medium-size compartments are great for disposable razors or clippers, and the small compartments work well for corralling lip balm, floss containers, etc.

Pack a Basket

Baskets do vital storage work around the house and make a wonderful addition to a bathroom. The perfect vessel into which to heap towels, a basket will also bring a softly rustic note, warming up marble or a pale palette.

Wire Shelf Unit

A wire shelf unit makes a great addition to a bathroom. It adds both storage and display space, brightens up a dull wall and is lightweight and easy to hang.

Pullout Towel Rack

Pullout towel racks are typically meant for kitchens, but they’re also perfect for cramped bathrooms. They keep damp hand towels and washcloths off the counter so they can dry out of the way. You can find pullout towel racks at discount stores and online retailers.
