No matter the size of your bathroom, make sure every inch of storage space is used to its fullest potential with these stylish and popular bathroom storage ideas. Cabinets, towel storage and under-sink storage are just a few components to consider when looking for storage solutions. Whether you need a shelf, linen cabinet or medicine cabinet, check out ideas for bathroom storage from The Home Depot.
Over-the-Toilet Cabinets and Shelves
The storage space above the toilet is often one of the most under-utilized areas of the bathroom. For storing towels, toilet paper and other bathroom items, consider installing a shelf, a cabinet or stacking baskets over the toilet to hold these items.
Some of the top DIY bathroom storage ideas involve building a shelf or a ladder to use for over-the-toilet organization. Over-the-toilet storage solutions are a great way to maximize your space.
While you can definitely put bathroom shelves in the space above the toilet, you can also use them in other parts of the bathroom.
Shelving comes in many forms and styles, from ceramic corner shelves to driftwood boards and everything in between. You can store towels, toilet paper, candles and various decorative items in this open shelving, while still keeping everything out in plain sight so it's easy to find what you need in the space.
For additional storage, consider adding baskets to the shelves.
Bathroom Wall Cabinets
Like shelves, bathroom wall cabinets can store towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies or anything else your bathroom needs. These cabinets come in a variety of finishes, sizes and materials, so you’ll have no trouble finding cabinets to suit your taste and budget.
Many even feature a towel bar so you can hang your towels up between uses. Installing wall cabinets not only adds storage space, but also frees up counter space and improves the look and functionality of your bathroom.
Linen cabinets can hold your towels, washcloths and bath linens. They are often taller and more narrow than wall cabinets.
Most linen cabinets feature doors or drawers, but some also include adjustable shelves for complete space customization. The best part is that most linen cabinets come fully assembled, so you can use them right away.
Often overlooked as modern storage solutions, medicine cabinets can be a great addition to your space. Most models feature plenty of storage inside and a mirror on the outside, so they can blend seamlessly into your bathroom when placed above the sink. Some also include fog-free glass that won’t steam up when you’re taking a hot bath or shower.
Like linen cabinets, they come fully assembled. With adjustable shelves for your toiletries and often elegant design, medicine cabinets provide ample storage space for almost anyone.
