Bathroom Storage Space Tricks

Organization

Small bathrooms can quickly become cluttered by an abundance of unnecessary supplies. By first sorting out what you actually need in your bathroom, you can save on space. Small guest bathrooms might not need more than the basics, with a few extras tucked under the vanity. But, if you’ve got a small bathroom in constant use by family members, sort through your items and determine what doesn’t actually need to be stored in the bathroom.

 

Drawer Dividers

Using dividers inside of drawers can not only make for better organization, but also for more space, particularly when several dividers are stacked on top of each other within a deep drawer.

Additionally, take a look at the drawers on your vanity. Would adding a spice rack to the back of one give you more storage? How about one of these other vanity storage solutions?

Vertical Storage

Though a lot of small bathrooms don’t have much to offer by way of horizontal footage, chances are, the walls are still as tall as any other room in your house. That vertical area can be utilized for storage solutions, particularly cabinets or shelving options above the toilet, door, or sink.

Door Storage

Though doors seem thin and inflexible, they offer a surprising variety of storage options. That space on the back of your bathroom door is great for hanging towel racks or hangers for towels and bathrobes.

Standing Showers

If you’re remodeling your bathroom to get extra space, consider whether or not a shower is necessary. Many small bathrooms serve as basic water closet for guests, and don’t require more than the necessities of soap and toilet paper. However, if you use your small bathroom for your family, a small shower may be right for you. Not all showers need a bathtub base, and converting your wide shower into a simple standing shower closet may provide you with that extra burst of space you need to fit a larger vanity with more storage, or provide a place for a shelving unit.
