We’re all obsessed with beautiful bathrooms here at Space Optimized and we know that you don’t have to spend a small fortune to create your own Pinterest-worthy toilet! If your bathroom is short on storage space, here are clever tricks and tips to uncover unexpected space for your grooming essentials in a cabinet-less bathroom:
Space Optimized: How to Make the Most Out of Your Tiny Bathroom
Free up more space in your tiny toilet by installing three towel bars directly behind your bathroom door. Stacking towel hangers are the perfect way to maximize underutilized space without installing cabinets.
A free standing shelf makes a fantastic solution for cabinet-less bathrooms! Turn an A-shelf into a stylish bathroom organizer and store your essentials at each level.
You can also re-paint the A-shelf in any color you like to add depth and dimension to a monochromatic bathroom like this pretty salmon organizer!
You can transform the under-sink into a bathroom organizer in a snap by using a patterned sink cover or sink skirt. This works great too if you’d like to hide naked pipes under the sink!
Just place your storage bins under the sink and cover everything with the skirt. Your knick-knacks are hidden away instantly, out of sight, out of mind!
If you have several wooden crates lying around, you can repurpose these babies into a set of bathroom organizers.
Give them a fresh coat of paint and using an electric drill, install the crates on your bathroom wall and you’re done!
Ah, mason jars, so useful yet so cheap! If you have no plans this weekend, watch this easy peasy tutorial and create your own bathroom organizer using mason jars.
Apart from making your own mason jar organizer, you can use these jars as tiny containers for your bathroom essentials to eliminate clutter on the bathroom sink!
Actually, all types of jars work as instant containers for the bathroom. I’d recommend using clear jars in different sizes and then arranging them near the sink so your bath essentials are always within easy reach!
Let your magazine holder pull double duty as a bathroom organizer. Hang the magazine holder anywhere in the toilet and you have instant space for your towels, toilet paper, etc.
Got any old, unused ladder gathering dust in the basement? Now’s the best time to whip that bad boy out to squeeze more room in your cramped bathroom.
Just prop the ladder against the wall and voila, you have an instant towel hanger, magazine holder, and bathroom organizer.
Bathroom Storage Rack
Don’t ignore that wasted space around your toilet bowl. Get a metal storage rack and turn this naked space into a beautiful storage area for your bath essentials.
Pictured above is a pretty storage rack you can get at Amazon. It comes with a built-in magazine rack, in case one forgets to bring his phone to the loo.
Wicker baskets add an instant shabby chic vibe to a living space and when stacked, these pretty bins add more room to the tiniest of bathrooms.
Stacked wicker baskets work great especially if you have a pedestal sink, just stow them under the sink and use them to store bathroom supplies.
… or use a large wicker basket with cover to collect dirty laundry.
Magnetic Knife Holder
You know how much the Space Optimized folks love magnetic knife holders (featured here, here and here)! A magnetic knife holder is incredibly useful in the kitchen and unsurprisingly, it is equally handy in the bathroom!
Just stick an ordinary magnetic knife holder on the wall nearest to your bathroom vanity/sink and you’ve got more room to spare for your grooming tools.
