Bathroom storage is essential for keeping your bathroom tidy and clutter free. If you’ve got a¬†small bathroom¬†or a large family – or both – then you are probably in need of some clever bathroom storage ideas to help keep clutter behind closed doors and more attractive items out on show.

There’s so many essential bits and pieces in a bathroom that you just can’t store elsewhere: razors, hairbrushes, cotton wool pads, loo roll, spare soaps, toothpaste… All of these must-haves need somewhere to live and sometimes more than one set of bathroom storage is needed.

With a little careful planning it’s easy to keep the clutter from getting out of control. If you have a lot of lotions and potions, consider a fitted bathroom, which tends to offer maximum storage capacity. Think about bathroom furniture, storage cabinets, vanities and shelves. A bathroom storage cabinet is the most obvious way to store everything from towels to bath oils. Freestanding bathroom cabinets are a versatile option and can be taken with you if you move out. They also give you the option of repurposing vintage or antique pieces.

Made-to-measure bathroom shelves will make the most of any space. Or look for shelving units – freestanding or wall-hung shelving units work in a variety of bathrooms spaces – and as well as storing the essentials can display your prettier trinkets. Shop around for smart bathroom accessories too: towel stores, bath racks, soap holders, shower caddies, loo-roll holders and brushes – even light pulls – can add the perfect finishing touches.

Whether you need one, two or all of these storage ideas, our tricks and tips for squeezing a little more space out of your bathroom aren’t to be missed. Read on to see how to de-clutter your bathroom…
