When you’re in the bathroom and can’t easily move around, you might start thinking about some of the ways that you can store the items that are in the cabinets or on the floor so that there’s more space to move. This is one of the downfalls of a small bathroom. With a few storage ideas, you can have plenty of room for all of your necessities and some of the extras that you use when you’re getting ready for the day.
A compact storage box can be used to sort the small items that are in your medicine cabinet so that you can use the cabinet for something else. Items that you can store in the box include medications, floss, or a few first aid supplies. Use the space underneath the bathroom counter for your cleaning supplies. Install a small rod in the cabinet to hang bottles that have handles. You can also put a turntable in the cabinet to make it easier to reach the supplies that you need.
Install a compact shelf near an outlet in the bathroom as a place to keep electronic toothbrushes, razors, and other electrical items so that you don’t have a lot of cords on the counter. You can still keep your towels and washcloths in the bathroom even if there’s not a linen closet. Roll the towels, placing them in baskets below the vanity so that they are out of the way. A smaller basket can be used for washcloths.
Put small racks that you can attach over the door in the cabinet to store tools for styling hair. You can also install a magnetic strip on the inside of the cabinet door to hang metal objects that you use, such as toenail clippers or hair clips. Use paper towel rolls to store toilet paper on the back of your toilet so that you don’t take up space on the floor.
