Cleanliness and order is a debatable subject; to some, it is the be all and end all, to others, it doesn't matter quite so much. Generally speaking, most issues can be resolved when there is adequate storage in place because even if the items in the drawers or shelves are not neatly put away, at least they have a designated place.

The bathroom is the space where we keep the most products. From toothpaste, to surplus toilet rolls, the list is never ending. And for women, there is a different cosmetic and bottle for every day and every occasion. It is imperative for this reason that we have the correct storage in place to ensure that our bathrooms maintain a constant level of tidy.

Storage baskets

Storage baskets or boxes of plastic, canvas, rattan or plastic help us to keep track of items in the bathroom and the endless collection of tubes, jars, bottles, brushes, hair ties and makeup… the list is endless. These boxes are generally for items that are on the smaller side and don't take up too much room or occupy too much space.

Towel rack

Towel racks or rails don't have to be plain and boring! These cool rhino heads are both functional and stylish and hopefully are so exciting that towels or clothes will never be left on the floor again! This style shows just a small fraction of what is available on the market—use your imagination, anything with a head or hook can be used as a hanger! 

Shelves & cabinets

Bathroom furniture such as shelves and cabinets provide storage space for towels, cleaning supplies, and the slighter larger bathroom items. Given that space is likely to be more limited than in other rooms, big closets or cabinets are generally speaking, far too big and cumbersome. Mounting shelving units or cupboards can free up necessary space, without looking bulky and overbearing. As you can see in the pictured image, the designers have opted for a floating unit, which looks both modern and stylish.

Niches & nooks

Niches and wall recesses provide us unexpected storage space in the bathroom. And the best thing? These storage options actually create additional space, instead of reducing it.

Integrating a vanity unit into your bathroom is a great way to incorporate storage and of course, the essential element which houses your sinks. Regardless if the sink and tap sit on top, or recessed, you can be sure to have plenty of space to store all items in your bathroom. Note: to minimise clutter inside the cupboards, you should arrange dividers and shelves to ensure everything has its own place.
