When we have a place to store the things we use, we’re more likely to put them back. That is why, here at Vurb, to help you maintain order we’re always looking at storage solutions.
Inspired by designer Reiko Caron‘s easy updates in the bathroom of her new condo which had a great spa shower but a not-so-great storage situation, we set out looking for other easy bathroom storage fixes. By using the backs and insides of doors, adding organizers to cabinets, wall storage, and customizing nooks and small spaces, you too can add more storage to a bathroom. Best of all, these solutions are easy and mostly-inexpensive to do.
Add organizers to cabinets
With a design to hold hair dryers in place, functional storage like this one will keep the room neater and are worth the extra investment.
The Iris Expandable Organizer from the Container Store has trays that pull out.
By expanding your storage with these stackable shelves and containers you make excellent use of the space under the sink.
Sliding organizers that pull out are available on Amazon, at Bed Bath, at home improvement stores and organizing stores like The Container Store.
With a little glue (get the right type for the material of your cabinet) and an assortment of business card holders and small pieces, the door of your medicine cabinet can be put to good use.
Add storage behind and over doors
This unit and many of the Cabidor behind the door storage solutions use the hinges of your door as attachments so there is no need to drill holes. In addition to the mirrored door, they carry one without as well as in a smaller size.
Use a 24-pocket over the door shoe organizer to store toiletries and bath products.
Use nooks and small spaces
When you’re the homeowner or you’re going to live in a rental for years, customizations like these that take advantage of every little nook will expand your storage in clever ways.
These magnet strips can be installed virtually anywhere to store small implements like tweezers and also make a great bobby bin “holder.”
You’ll have to do some customization, but take advantage of cubbyholes and small spaces when you can with shelving.
A good carpenter can design custom pull-out cabinets to fit even very small areas and add in functional elements like in-drawer electrical outlets that are going to save you time and help you keep your bathroom tidy.
