With countless tips and must-haves in the market today, it's safe to say that it's no longer impossible to turn a compact nook into a bright, functional, and inspiring area. In the bathroom alone, there are tons of pieces you can add to make it clutter-free and extra relaxing. If you have budget to spare, here are items that should be on top of your must-buy list:

Storage Baskets

 


Woven baskets not only add charm, they can hold different items too. Whether you want to have extra towels, toiletries, or magazines in the bathroom, these sturdy organizers can get the job done. You can have these baskets installed on the wall or you can keep it under the sink—just make sure these won't get wet.

Sink Cabinet


If space is really scarce, see if you can have a sink cabinet in your bathroom. The storage underneath is perfect for storing your daily essentials, extra toiletries, and even a few hand towels. Work with a professional to see how you can make this work in your home.

Looking for topnotch bath fixtures? Visit the Sanitec Main Showroom at 236, E. Rodriguez Sr. Avenue, Barangay Don Manuel, Quezon City.

Laundry Hamper


Don't just leave your dirty clothes on the floor or use an ordinary plastic bin! A woven hamper or one with a wooden detail not only adds warmth, it packs some Zen feel, too.

Find something similar at Muji, Greenbelt 3, Esperanza Street, Makati City.

Tower Storage


Make the limited floor area work by bringing in sleek and slim storage pieces. A wooden shelf similar to the one in the photo can hold your items in place while taking up less floor space. You can even place it in an unused corner between the sink and the toilet bowl.

Find similar at SB Furniture, 3rd Level, Market! Market!, McKinley Parkway, Taguig.

Over-the-Toilet Storage

Have a trusted carpenter build something similar for you or go simple by opting for wall-mounted shelves. Aside from displaying some of your toiletries, you can even add small potted plants or a pot of potpourri that can neutralize odors.

Slim Cabinets


Do you also keep some of your makeup and brushes in the bathroom? Keep them organized in a wall-mounted slim cabinet. Choose a piece with multiple tiers or compartments so you can have all what you need in one spot.

RL Tip: If there's still space, you may want to add a few potted plants in the bathroom. Aside from adding a refreshing vibe, these can purify the air and help avoid funky odors, too. Click here to learn more.
