Five Practical Storage Solutions for Your Bathroom

Whether it's a case of using existing storage in a more efficient way or finding somewhere new to store your bathroom sundries, making use of every centimetre of space can often be the most practical option for bathroom storage. Perhaps your pedestal sink could be swapped for a vanity unit with inbuilt drawers or cupboards, or a washstand that can be used to store clutter in your bathroom. It's also worth considering whether you could switch your current toilet for a combination unit, which will offer maximum storage for the space available. 

A place for everything and everything in its place

When it comes to finding suitable storage for your bathroom and indeed anywhere in the house, problems arise when there simply isn't a correct place for something. If your shampoo bottles are always falling in the bath, consider putting up a shelf to store them all. If you find you want to recycle but end up with a collection of empty bottles and toilet roll tubes, put a receptacle for all the recycling actually in the bathroom and empty it when it gets full. If you are fed up with disorganised shelves in your bathroom cabinet, consider removing the things that you don't use regularly and storing them elsewhere so that you have easy access to the items that are taken in and out on a daily basis. 

Work around the essentials

Obviously there are some things that you need to have in your bathroom, so any storage must accommodate the basics, but there's no reason why you shouldn't make sure that they are pulling their weight when it comes to providing storage. Combined units can be real space savers, offering cupboard and drawer space in areas that are traditionally not used for much beyond collecting dust.  Storage units such as those available at

Make the most of your bathroom cabinet

Wall mounting a cabinet can be a great way to maximise the space available to you as you are effectively creating storage out of thin air. There are a number of different styles to choose from, including traditional, contemporary, mirrored and illuminated. Cabinets can be unobtrusively small, while floor-to-ceiling models provide plenty of space for everything. 

Consider a fitted bathroom

If your bathroom is particularly small, oddly shaped or just in need of complete renovation, it may be worth considering a fitted bathroom. You can choose units to fit even the most irregular of spaces, squeeze storage into every nook and cranny available and ensure that your whole bathroom has a consistent style. A fitted bathroom is ideal for anyone who wants to remodel their bathroom without having to source every item individually. Another benefit is that the upheaval involved in having the work done is kept to a minimum as everything will be fitted at the same time.
