Working with a small space

For all the TUTORIALS and INSTRUCTIONS check out DIY Bathroom Storage Ideas.

The key to getting organized is working with what you have and maximizing on the potential of the space you have.

1) Use a magnetic strip

Magnetic strips are your best friend when it comes to keeping things like nail clippers and tweezers to hand.

They can be bought cheaply from your local hardware store and can be applied anywhere you fancy from the mirror to a medicine cabinet.

2) Racks are great for pullout storage

Racks can be picked up from charity stores or department stores and they make great compartments for things like cleaning products as well as personal toiletries.

Use dividers and mini boxes to keep products neat and together.

3)Ropes give a designer touch

Think out of the box when it comes to storage by using non standard items such as ropes for fixtures and fittings.

You will need a power drill to drill holes for looping the rope through each shelf at both ends.

4) Put toiletries on show

Clear jars are perfect for seeing exactly what's what and also lends a clean feel to a bathroom.

Old mason jars can be used for this purpose and you can have cotton balls and q-tips in these containers.

5) Capitalize on cabinet doors

Adding hooks or pockets to the inside of cabinet doors gives a multitude of possibilities for storage.

6) Re-purpose Pallets

Old pallets and old wine crates make for great rustic storage in any area.

Hooks can be added to hang towels and crates are a handy nook for other items such as nappies or beauty products.

8) Bookcases aren't just for books.

The best thing about bookcases is that they come in all shapes and sizes so you are bound to find a practical solution for your area.

Bag a bargain at car boot sales or auction houses and you can re vamp them to suit your décor.

9) Count on Counter-tops

Use everything available to you. Counter tops are an ideal place for cupboards to be placed on.

Not only does this make it easy to reach ( it will be at arms length) but also you will pack a lot more onto an otherwise crammed space.

10) Sliding Shelves

Panels can be turned into sliding shelves which come in and out according to your needs.

Roll-out shelves not only make things easier to find but it also makes efficient use of areas that don't have a lot of room for storage.

11) Recessed Shelving

Recessed shelving is a very nifty way of finding space where there is none.

They are also a fantastic alternative to the metal shelves that get rusty and can be hard to clean.

      You have so many good ideas here, but I think I like those pull-out racks the best because it's so dark in those under the counter cabinets. So hard to see what's under there. Being able to pull the racks out would really make it a lot easier.
