It’s surprising how fast your bathroom cabinets fill up! Whether it’s bath towels, mouthwash, or toilet paper, everything needs a place. Here are some ways to make the most of your space and increase your storage in your bathroom.

Wall cabinet

If you are tight on space, installing a cabinet on the wall is a great way to add storage and stay organized, without taking up a large footprint. For an inexpensive DIY project, paint old wooden crates and hang them from the wall. The area above the toilet is often an overlooked area in the bathroom which can be utilized for storage.


Small and large wicker baskets can be placed underneath the sink, in open shelving or next to the sink as a laundry hamper. If the baskets have lids, you can stack them, large to small, in a corner of the room. Baskets are an aesthetically pleasing storage solution that hides items such as toilet paper and washcloths from sight.

Custom shelving

If you have the time and the budget, designing custom shelves to fit your space and your needs can be beneficial. This custom solution can help you keep everything in its place which makes it much easier as you are running through your morning routine.

Peg rail

A peg rail is an inexpensive, easy-to-install solution for hanging towels, toiletry bags and other bathroom items such as a robe. It serves as a multi-functional storage solution that doesn’t take up a lot of space.

Ladder rack

For an unused corner space, a ladder rack can add a rustic feel to your bathroom space where you can lay towels, robes, pajamas or your outfit for the day!

Sliding shelves

Your cabinets don’t have to remain the way they were built! Equip your vanity with shelves that slide in and out for convenience. Add hooks, caddies and other organizational tools to keep everything in its place.

Back of the door

The back of the bathroom door often goes unnoticed and underutilized! Add hooks or towel racks to house your robe or bath towel.

Open shelving

This type of shelving can make a bathroom feel more spacious and can bring a unique look to your space. The use of open shelving makes you stay organized and is a storage solution that can give a small bathroom an open feel.

Sink skirt

If you are running out of storage space but you don’t have cabinets under your sink, you can still use the space underneath! To store makeup and toiletries out of the way, attach a skirt around the sink to hide the items.

Medicine cabinet

Medicine cabinets are not out of style! A deep, recessed and modern medicine cabinet places daily needs at an arm’s reach! Store your vitamins, toothbrush and contact case right where you need them! You might need a contractor’s help with this storage solution unless you’re an experienced do-it-yourselfer!

Make your morning routine run a little smoother with organized storage solutions that maximize your space and minimize confusion. Consider the space you have to work with and your family’s needs to ensure that you choose the appropriate solutions that fit your lifestyle.
