3 Ways To Squeeze Extra Storage Into A Tiny Bathroom

These savvy storage ideas are not only practical, they look adorable too!


Storage is a top priority in any abode, big or small, but it's especially true for the bathroom. We store so many bits and bobs in there—makeup, razors, hair tools, toilet paper—that it's easy for clutter to get out of control. 

If your T&B is looking a little topsy-turvy, it might be time to upgrade your storage. Check out these three simple ways you can carve out extra room for your belongings out of the tightest spaces:

Utlize the flat surface above your water closet.

Save a ton of sink space by adding a cute basket over your toilet and let it serve as a place for spare toiletries and a few magazines. You can also take it a step forward by building a floating shelf for either more products or a spot to display knickknacks and houseplants.

Experiment with freestanding storage.

No space for shelves or wall cabinets? A simple storage ladder is the answer to your woes. Aside from taking up minimal floor space, it has different levels to help you store decor, towels, and more. Try using mismatched containers to bring dimension to your storage unit.

Start building crate shelving. 

For an easy and budget-friendly option, crate shevling is your best bet. These are great for customizing storage specific to your needs as you can add or take down boxes whenever you want. As an added bonus, reclaimed wood can add a nice rustic touch to your T&B.
