Add More Storage to a Small Bathroom

Our home has been blessed with a ton of bathroom storage. However, I know that many of you are struggling with bathroom storage. Having lived in a few houses that offered little to no bathroom storage, I know how hard it can be. I thought I would share a few tips to making the most of a small bathroom.

1. Shop for tall but slender furniture. A piece such as this billy cabinet found on IHeart Organizing, takes up little floor space while making the most of your vertical space.

2. Hanging a bucket or box from hooks on the wall, like these ones found at, can add additional storage without using up any floor space.

3. Take down your towel bar and replace it with a few hooks. Hooks take up less wall space allowing you to hang up more towels or use the extra space for one of the ideas above.

4. Add storage to the inside of you cabinet doors. This will allow you to store items you use often in an easy to find place.

5. Take out a section of your wall and add storage between the the studs. This is a great way to add storage by using up unused space. Use the area to store your toilet cleaning supplies or your shampoos and beauty products.

6. Look up. Adding a shelf above the toilet, door, towels, or bath tub can add a lot of storage space. Be sure to install the storage high enough so that no one will be hitting their head on it.

  6. Great tips. And the matching photos are inspiring. Extra storage space is always welcome.

  7. where did you find the wall plunger cabinet? We so need one for each bathroom!

  8. Great ideas. I love the very last picture and it would be perfect in our small narrow bathroom.

  9. I LOVE that semi-built in shelf. Brilliant idea!

  10. I like the hanging boxes and buckets but the best idea of all has to be creating your own built-in storage space in the wall! I would never in a million years have thought of that, but it's such a great idea when space is limited and is perfect for hiding away those ugly toilet brushes and plungers!

  11. Hi Jamie, I really like the idea of claiming the wall space between the studding. This is great for thin items and internal walls. We've got a small inner-city apartment and unfortunately we're not allowed to make such changes to the structure of the building. Insead we've aimed to add storage shelves from the floor to the ceiling along one wall, with a sliding ladder so we can get to the higher places. It's worked really well and, as long as we don't let the shelves get messy, it also really classy (if I do say so myself!) :)

    Our bigger items, like our two kayaks and all the accompanying gear, we keep in our small storage unit. It's pretty handy and we spent a couple weeks looking for storage Basildon - we'd never be able to keep our kayaks otherwise in our small apartment, and it's not too far away for us to drop by at a moment's notice.

    I really like the towel shelf you've got going in that final photo. How high is that? Is it easy to reach?

  12. It is amazing on what you can do with very little space. I like doing DIY and making tight and small spaces look big and accommodate for items. Working for self storage facilities just adds my penchant of making small spaces look big. A little tweak to some of these ideas would help me maximize our own living space. With two young children, you could image the clutter we have, especially in the living room. I decided to have rolling storage containers (dark wood) for my children’s books or plush toys. With these rolling storage containers, it is also easier for them to put away these toys.

  13. Great suggestions! When it comes to small spaces, one has to do their best to efficiently maximize the space they have available. Little tips and tricks like the ones you've posted here definitely help a lot. And more importantly, a storage space also needs efficient ways to manage the clutter, or otherwise, it'll just get messy again.

  14. There are some very nice storage ideas here. Our bathroom is quite small and we have used the walls for hanging things from, and also built in tall thin cupboards and shelving above the door and cabinets. This frees up the floor space and makes the room look less cluttered but also gives us places to store our things.
