6 Hacks to Maximize Bathroom Storage Space

Do you fantasize about having a bathroom space that can be your personal refuge from the hustle and bustle of life? But instead, you’ve got a bathroom cluttered with toiletries and towels–which means you need more storage space. In this blog, we share 6 hacks to help you maximize your bathroom space.

#1 Hang Shelves in Unusual Places

Being savvy about the shelving you choose and where you hang it can make all the difference in a small bathroom. Picture ledges or floating shelves are the smartest choices as they are inexpensive and easy to install. Putting them in “dead spaces”, such as above the toilet or between the sink and mirror is the best way to maximize your useable space.

#2 Add Cabinets in the Walls

If your bathroom feels small and cramped, it may lead to daydreams of taking a sledge hammer to those walls. So, do it! You’d be amazed at how much storage space hides behind bathroom walls. Knock out some drywall and put some shelving between the studs. You could leave the shelves open if you’re going for a more simplistic look, or add a door for a little more discretion.

#3 Add Storage Under your Pedestal Sink

Just because your pedestal sink came with no storage doesn’t mean there’s no potential there. You could buy or build cabinets that wrap around the base, which create storage out of thin air. But if you’re looking for a less expensive DIY solution try a pedestal skirt. Securing the store-bought skirt to base of the sink with double sided tape or Velcro strips makes this an easy no-sew project and the perfect way to keep things out of site.

#4 Put Part of your Toilet in your Wall

Yes, this may sound crazy but your standard toilet eats up a lot of valuable bathroom space. The solution? Consider installing a wall-hung toilet. It’s minimalistic, chic, and frees up space. Since the tank and plumbing hide behind the wall, be sure to leave an access panel for easy maintenance.

#5 Put Toiletries in Hanging Baskets

Good quality hanging baskets give even the ugliest bottles and brushes some sense of style. Most baskets are light enough to mount onto a wall using picture hooks, or for a less permanent solution attach baskets vis S-hooks to a towel bar.

#6 Mount a Second Curtain Rod in your Shower

If your shower is minimalist in all the wrong ways, you know the struggle of stashing bottles, razors, and soap in tiny corners. But there is no law saying a shower can’t have two rods. If you hang a second tension rod inside the shower it makes it easier to hang buckets and caddies with S-hooks. With this hack, you’ll never have to worry about fumbling around with bottles again.
