Making the Most of Small Spaces

1) Baskets, Baskets, Baskets

Baskets are an inexpensive and stylish way to keep your space organized and clutter free. They are great for extra towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and toiletries. Craft stores like Hobby Lobby & Michael's offer great sales and coupons so you can find all the style at half the price.

2) Wall Shelving

Installing several wall shelves in nook areas such as over the toilet or on open walls- like over the bathtub will create endless possibilities for storage and decor. Using more than one shelf not only creates bathroom space but adds dimension to an otherwise not so pretty room. The open shelves create easy access for those bathroom necessities while still maintaining a look of organization. A shelf over the bathtub can become that designated spot for all the required bath time essentials such as oils, candles and bubble bath.

3) Turn a Vintage Dresser into a Vanity

Changing an old dresser into a vanity is not only green and inexpensive, it is a storage option that creates timeless character with a vintage feel. While the drawers offer many storage choices, a dresser repurposed as a vanity is the perfect wow statement that turns a house into a home. Visit the Better Homes & Garden link below for easy to follow directions.

4) Get Magnitized

Installing a piece of galvanized steel behind a medicine cabinet is literally inside the box thinking that creates boundless storage options. Using magnet style hooks provides hidden organization spots for items such as brushes and compact mirrors. Purchasing magnetic strips and adhering them to the back of containers is the ultimate solution to the infinite number of wayward hair ties and bobby pins.

5) Drawer Dividers

Bathroom drawers can be any beauty mavens worst nightmare. However, drawer dividers can help make your morning routine smoother than that first cup of coffee. There are many different types and sizes for any and every beauty tool out there and the dividers come in multiple shapes and styles to fit any drawer. For an even cheaper idea, head to the local dollar store where you can DIY it. They offer many different sizes and colors of baskets that are perfect for drawer organization.

6) DIY Over the Door Shelving

Over the door shelving is a great out of the way idea that adds essential storage without losing important bathroom space. It is eye catching enough to stylish, yet a hidden for the perfection storage solution. See link below for a quick tutorial on how to install a shelf.

7) Hidden Hair Tool Storage

Hair dryers, curling irons and straighters can be the utilmate suckage of bathroom storage. Using a file folder is a great way to keep these beauty tools tidy and at your fingertips. You can pick these up for next to nothing and when you mount them to the inside of your bathroom cabinet door, they make the perfect spot to house these essential products.
