Bathroom storage ideas: Clever designs for minimal clutter

Smart storage for small bathroomsWhen we look for bathroom storage ideas, finding both smart and stylish designs can be a challenge, which is why we spoke to the experts at to learn a few trade secrets. Here’s what Deirdre McGettrick – Founder of and co-host of The DnA of Home Interiors podcast – had to say.

“The bathroom is a space in the house that should be as practical as it is stylish. Finding the right storage for a range of different bathroom designs is key to achieving your perfect finish. From a practical perspective, it’s important to find storage solutions that withstand becoming damp and wet on a regular basis. For smaller bathrooms and wet rooms, consider selecting pieces of furniture to sit around functional installations in your bathroom. Cabinets that sit below the sink and on the wall are both great options, whilst tall cabinets and shelving units are good ways to use the height of a room. Consider spreading upwards rather than outwards.

If you’re lucky enough to have a large bathroom, consider standalone furniture and cabinets levelled at different surface heights. It’s also worth considering adding items that offer relaxation, such as potted plants or candles. Items like these will enhance your enjoyment of the space.”

Bespoke designs

Bespoke designs work in any bathroom, but especially those with limited space, slanted ceilings and uneven corners. Creating storage that moulds into the curves and edges of your bathroom opens it up and keeps everything looking neat and compact. Designs include floating shelves, over-the-toilet or over-the-door storage, cabinets and tallboys.

Why not hire a professional to come and measure your square footage, talk through your options and build something that enhances and maximises your space?
