9 of the Best, Sneaky Storage Bathroom Tips
Bathroom storage is probably the hardest to maximise. We design and install bespoke bathroom storage solution and over the years, we have come across some great storage ideas. We round up our top sneaky storage tips just for you!
1. Make MORE of cabinets and cupboards…
… by utilising the back of the door with slimline cupboard organisers. Fix to the back of the door, and pop in hard-to-store items that you need to reach quickly when you use the bathroom.
2. Use a turntable shelf
Sometimes called a ‘lazy Susan’, the rotating disc is commonly used in kitchen cupboards and on the dining table. Available in various sizes, choose one for the bathroom cabinet too!
3. Rod and S-hooks
A shower curtain rod doesn’t have to be just for the shower curtain. Install a second rod, find yourself some S-hooks to hang those shower essentials within easy reach. A small change with a big impact.
4. Add shelving
If you are still stuck for cabinet and cupboard space, an option is to add shelving to your bathroom. From a shelf above the door for spares in the bathroom to slimline shelving next to the sink, it is an easy solution but keep order on the shelves to stop them looking cluttered.
For something different, try shelving with inverted brackets for a slightly different look.
5. Secret shelving
If you don’t want your shelving on show, why not ask our designers about ‘secret shelving’. The shelves are fixed to the wall, complete with a cabinet door. You still get all that shelving space and a door to hide it away. A simple, easy on the budget solution.
6. Sliding drawers
The storage technology has already been developed in many ways and yet, we confine some storage solutions to certain rooms in the house. We assume, for example, that the only place a wardrobe can be is the bedroom or that sliding drawers in cupboards are only to be found in the kitchen. but who says they can’t fit neatly under the sink in the bathroom? Not us…
7. Use stackable ‘bins’
Stackable bins – containers with an opening at one short end – are ideal for hiding away in the bathroom cabinet. Opt for different depths to give you the most versatile options.
Plastic is great for keeping clean but sometimes, it is not always the prettiest. For on-show storage, opt for pretty baskets. Either stack on a shelf or attached to the wall using hooks.
9. Hang jars
Glass jars are great in the bathroom but if you don’t want them clustered on the vanity basin or shelving, why not attach them to the wall? Use large hose clips that fit the jar, attaching the clip to the wall with a suitable fixing. Slot the jar in place, tightening the clip but don’t over-tighten and crack the jar.
