5 simple storage solutions for your bathroom
When it comes to bathroom storage, there seem to be endless possibilities of how best to tackle this tricky space.
From under sink storage, to bathroom mirror cabinets, corner units and baskets, it can feel daunting when you don’t quite know what will work best in your space, or how to implement it. Below are some of our favourite space-saving tips and tricks to get the most out of your bathroom.
It’s what’s on the inside that counts…
The key to a clutter-free space is to first make sure you’re getting the most out of your existing storage. Bathroom drawers and cabinets can often become a dumping ground for anything and everything, leaving you rummaging through for that one red lipstick when you’re in a rush, and wishing you’d paid better attention to Marie Kondo! Take the stress away with some classic drawer organisers. These handy trays and containers are a simple and effective way to give all your bits and bobs a home, making them all that easier to find. There are also many configurations, styles and materials to choose from. Our favourite is a wooden set which adds a warm touch, and is much more forgiving that acrylic which can look dirty very quickly.
Does your bathroom have one too many empty walls? Is your shower floor littered with bottles of shampoo? Do you have space that just feels wasted? Well then, bathroom shelves could be the answer for you! Elevate your space with some beautiful shelving styled with some of your favourite products, bathroom storage baskets, and a few fun accessories to help bring your space to life, freeing up floor space and helping keep things tidy at the same time.
These days you can find pre-made shelving in all kinds of shapes, sizes, colours and materials, making it super easy to build a quick and stylish storage solution in your bathroom. Some of our favourite spots for shelving include right above the toilet or in the corner of your shower.
Most bathrooms have a classic medicine or bathroom cabinet above the sink, full of everyone’s bits and pieces: bottles, razors, make-up, perfume, and that expensive face cream you bought years ago that you can’t bring yourself to throw out… Why not update your bathroom storage cabinet for something with a little more ‘oomf’ – internal charging ports, steam free mirrors and adjustable lighting are just some of the ingenious features now available to you, helping turn that tired old cabinet into something super useful.
Utilise Those Hooks!
So, you’ve probably already got an old hook or two in your bathroom, maybe by the sink or on the back of the door. But hooks are no longer just for dressing gowns and wet towels, we see them as a great storage solution, which also offers the opportunity for some fun styling. Hairdryers, swim bags, body brushes and baskets (perfect for toilet rolls or hand towels) are just some of the things we think deserve a hook or two! And why not hang a plant as well to add a touch of greenery, our favourite is English ivy.
If all else fails…
If you’ve got this far and are still thinking ‘I’ll never have enough room for all my stuff!’ then it might be time to start looking at the bigger picture. I’ve you’ve got an old-school pedestal sink, with no cupboard or drawer, it could be a wasted opportunity to get the storage you need.
Amp up your space and give your bathroom a new lease of life by updating your bathroom furniture. These stylish units with under sink cabinets offer oodles of space where you need it most, with a great range of colours and sizes to suit any room.
