Staying clutter-free in a small space requires you to be creative with your storage. And let’s face it, we’re not all lucky enough to be blessed with freestanding baths and vanity units, especially not in rented property.
Finding stylish solutions for small bathrooms isn’t always easy so today I wanted to share some ideas you can incorporate into your small bathroom, to help keep your beauty products organised, your towels off the floor and creating maximum floor space. Because let’s face, it’s all good and well having a stylish bathroom but if you can only wash your face whilst sat on the toilet, then there’s not much point.
The first must have is a bath caddy like the one highlighted above. What’s better than relaxing in the tub, with a glass of something nice, a candle burning and a book? With a bath caddy you can create a tranquil space when you’re bathing, yet also use it through the day to store lotions and potions.
A ladder shelf is a great storage solution to hang towels from whilst retaining the limited floor space you may have. A wooden one like this one from Lime Lace gives a Scandinavian finish to the room – a trend which is still going strong in homeware, updated with the introduction of more natural tones and textures.
If long and thin is your thing, then this storage cabinet from JD Williams offers a place to fold away towels and hide those bits and pieces you’d rather not have out on show. The grey tone teamed with the wood gives this piece a furniture a rustic country finish, yet it wouldn’t look too out of place in a more modern townhouse. Use the open shelving for indoor plants to add more colour to the room.
If you own or your landlord will allow you to hang things on the wall, these floating shelves from John Lewis provide a stylish alternative to storage. From plants to products with beautiful packaging, jars of cotton wool and candles, you could curate a gorgeous shelfie with these storage options.
If you have space under your sink or by the bath, consider buying compact drawers such as this three-tier wooden engraved design from Dunelm. When pieces of furniture are raised up off the floor with legs, it makes the space appear bigger. Plus, if you’re in an all-white bathroom, these drawers, alongside mustard towels and lots of plants, can create a bohemian-inspired space without having to make any huge cosmetics changes.
