The bathrooms are the tiniest, yet the busiest rooms in any home. And no matter the size of your bathroom, it is quite possible that you will still need extra space for storing things. There are many smart ways to add extra storage while organizing this space without taking up a lot of floor space or spending a fortune. These little hacks, tips, and ideas can dramatically change the functionality of your tiny bathroom, so let’s check them out.
HANGING SHELVES IN ALL SIZES, SHAPES, AND COLORS
Wall space shouldn’t be neglected. Add storage space in your small bathroom by hanging cabinets and shelves near your bathtub design. You can go with a small hanging shelf to display toilet paper, soap and everything else, or cabinets to hide those things. Use hanging organizers such as spice racks or hanging baskets to declutter the space.
REPURPOSE OLD THINGS
Use your creativity and imagination to decorate your bathroom interior. Repurpose old items to add extra storage in your tiny space and let them become a functional DIY project you will be proud of. For instance, you can paint your old beside the table and by hand and use it to hold toiletries. A small hanging shelf can be easily made and can serve to display the beauty products you use on a daily base.
DECLUTTER YOUR BEAUTY PRODUCTS
Did you know that women spend around $420 billion a year on beauty products? Some of your products may have expired and this is the right time to get rid of them. Throw away the following products:
- Sunscreen: after three years
- Lipstick: after one to two years
- Face wipes: after two months
- Mascara: after three months
Like food, some cosmetics have an expiration date, so before buying a lotion, cream or lipstick, check the month, date and year printed on the package.
STORE EVERYTHING NEATLY IN WICKER BASKETS
You can find interesting wicker basket designs that will add warmth and coziness and that will last forever for a fairly affordable price. You can throw small towels, toiletries, toilet paper or any other items you need to organize in your bathroom. Colored wicker baskets can be a perfect option to contrast or match your bathroom style.
UTILIZE THE SPACE ABOVE THE DOOR
One area of the bathroom that is often neglected is the space above the door. This is a great place to install a shelf, which can be used to display beauty products, towels, and extra toilet paper. Rest the shelf on top of the door molding, to support the weight. Make sure to keep everything in boxes, so the bottles don’t roll around.
USE THE SPACE BEHIND THE DOOR
Whether you are living alone or you have a large family, you probably find yourself searching for spots to hang your wet towels. If it is left in a heap, the damp towel quickly turns into a smelly towel. To avoid this and use the space efficiently, install a towel bar to the back of the bathroom door.
