Clever storage ideas for bathrooms

When it comes to creating storage space in your bathroom, there are lots of ways to add both practicality and style – even if you don’t have as much space as you’d like. Whether you want to make a feature out of storage and display things in plain view, or prefer a more discrete look, there are options to suit everyone.

We’ve subsequently shared some of our top tips for clever storage ideas below if you’re in need of a little inspiration.

Invest in a vanity unit

If you have the space, then the Paris 1000mm Floorstanding Vanity Unit & Basin in Gloss White offers ample storage solutions, with multiple cupboards and drawers of varying sizes. Perfect for storing all your bathroom essentials, it also has countertop space on either side of the basin, which itself, is wide and spacious, so can also accommodate items here, too. Supplied fully assembled for convenience, the unit also has soft-close doors which won’t slam noisily, while the chrome mono basin mixer matches the chrome finishes of the unit’s handles for a cohesive look.

For something a bit more compact, the Happi Wall-mounted Cloakroom Vanity Unit & Basin in Matt Anthracite also offers storage with cupboard space built-in underneath the basin. Again, the doors are soft-close, while the cupboard has ample room for toiletries. Perfect if you need something more slimline for your bathroom, this unit will add modern style as well as providing the practicality you need.

If vanities aren’t for you, or you’d like something a little bit different for storage, then adding a chair, stool or small table could add both texture and practicality to your space, as well as creating visual interest. Smaller items such as toiletries, towels or even ornaments can be placed onto these additional surfaces, as well as plants, if you want to decorate the area.

Ladders are another way to create quirky storage, as these are great for holding towels. Leaning a ladder against the wall or setting up a small ladder in a corner of the room can help to add dimension as well as providing a unique place for towels or other items. Fitting hooks onto your walls can also be a great way to display towels, while trolleys are another way to get creative with storage – these are great for holding everything from towels to toiletries.

Adding an alcove can provide extra shelf space, while baskets can hold other bathroom items.

Mixing open and closed storage – such as combining a vanity unit’s cupboard space with open shelving or the ladder idea, can further bring that visual interest and add depth and dimension to your bathroom. Floating shelves above toilets or baths will also add another element to your interior design, bringing practicality and style to your home.

Meanwhile, installing an alcove or niche in the wall near your bath can create a more permanent shelving solution for storing toiletries or other objects. Similarly, using wicker baskets can introduce further texture to your bathroom, while also providing storage space for towels, toilet rolls or other items.

Creative bathroom cabinetry

Mirrored cabinets are another storage option and can be surprisingly deceptive with the amount of room they provide inside. With both single and double-door designs available, you can find something to suit all spaces. For example, the Mia LED Cabinet Double-door Demister and Shaver Socket has two glass shelves behind its double mirrored doors, so you can discreetly keep toiletries out of sight while also having the functionality of the mirrors.

With in-built LED lighting on the mirrored doors, along with a shaver socket and demister pad to prevent the glass from steaming up, the Mia LED Cabinet doesn’t just deliver on storage, it also enhances your bathroom experience in multiple ways.

Another bathroom cabinet which offers great storage is the Synergy Virgo Mirrored Cabinet, which is ideal if you have a little less wall space. This single-door cabinet also has shelving within, including two glass shelves which will hold a variety of bathroom essentials. It again comes with a demister pad to keep the mirrors clear of steam, along with a shaver socket for added convenience.

Bath caddies are another novel way of providing storage in your bathroom, being ideal for holding everything from candles and bath foam to any other smaller items you might want to keep near the bath. The Viktor Benson Bamboo Bath Caddy and Bath Board is ideal for all sizes of baths, as it can easily be adjusted to suit their width. Whether you want to use it as storage space all the time or would simply like some extra storage while bathing, to keep key items close to hand, it will add texture and stylish practicality to your bathroom.

Storage can also come in the form of a bath caddy, such as the Viktor Benson Bamboo Bath Caddy and Bath Board, which is great for holding all those bathroom essentials.

No matter what type of storage you prefer, there are lots of ways to get creative with how you organise your bathroom – whether you have lots of space or a more modest interior. From shelving, alcoves, vanity units and bathroom cabinets, to ladders, baskets, bath caddies and more, if its storage you’re looking for, then you can take your pick.
