To complete the T&B, it's not enough to have baskets and bins to help you organize toiletries and essentials. Hit two birds with one stone by investing in these storage bets that help beautify even the smallest of bathrooms and keep it functional, too:

1. Corner Shelf

More often than not, we place a basket or tray on top of the water closet to hold bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shower gels. Maximize awkward corners, nooks and crannies by choosing corner shelves that you can hang on an empty wall. Doing so will help you create a clean and clutter-free look.

2. Hamper with Shelving

Always worried about the limited space? Hang towels and keep clothes in order with this sleek shelf that serves two purposes. Make sure you don't place it behind or near the door so you can access the T&B with ease.

3. Pink First-aid Kit

Ditch the plastic trays and Ziploc bags you're using to store medicines and other emergency must-haves. This teeny tiny kit can fit on a shelf or in a small cabinet, so you never have to worry! The bonus? It's made of natural materials to keep your private space looking unique, too.

4. Laundry Hamper

We're sure you're familiar with those common mesh hampers seen in bathrooms and sometimes, even in the bedroom. Keep within your home's look by choosing a piece that blends well with your interiors. This blue sea-inspired hamper is perfect if you're going for the tropical style or a beachy ambiance.

5. Mason Jar Bath Canister

Planning to create a stunning vignette on your counter? Keep tiny accessories and toiletries in place with chic canisters that won't break your chosen theme or look. Place two to three canisters in a tray then complete it with scented candles and catchalls for a spa-like setup.

P495, Domesticity, E-mail inquiry[at] or visit for details.

6. Umbra Wall Organizer

Given the limited area, we'd want to have multipurpose must-haves to save on space. This piece can double as a wall accent and a hanger for your face and hand towels. You can place it as is above the water closet to serve as decor and another by the sink where you can hang fresh towels.

P910, Wilcon Depot, 90 E. Rodriguez Jr. Ave., Ugong Norte, Libis, Quezon City. Visit for a list of branches.
