Our Bathroom Storage Ideas Guide

Often one of the most compact rooms in a home, your bathroom is also probably the space that has to work the hardest. From dealing with the hustle and bustle of getting everyone ready in the morning to being the place where you relax and enjoy a bit of ‘me time’, choosing the right bathroom storage can make all the difference to how it works for you.

If your bathroom feels cluttered and cramped, we’ve put together a selection of clever storage ideas, that combine style with practicality, to breathe new life into your smallest room.

  1. Make Space for more with our Wall-mounted Cabinets

    Also known as wall-hung storage units, these types of bathroom storage can make a real difference in homes where space is at a premium. Creating a place for towels and toiletries, they’re a great way to help make your bathroom feel organised and tidy. Because they’re raised up, they’re easier to clean under – and because they don’t take up floor space, they have the benefit of helping make your bathroom feel bigger, too.

    With a wide range of shapes and sizes to choose from, there’s an option for even small cloakrooms and en-suites – in a selection of finishes to create a look you love, like our modern and luxurious Rust and Grey Linen collection.

  2. Try Mirror Cabinets for Dual Purpose Storage

    For storage that works even harder, a mirrored bathroom storage cabinet is a great idea. Not only will it add extra storage to keep all your bathroom essentials out of sight, but these units double as a mirror for applying makeup and shaving. Best of all, a mirror can bounce light around your bathroom and create an illusion of extra space, too.

    In a selection of shapes and sizes, there are mirror units for even small rooms, like our great value Micra Slim Cabinet. Or if you’re looking for a more luxurious take on the look, our Castor style not only has integrated LED lighting but also a built-in demister pad, to make sure that the mirror remains perfectly clear while in use.

  3. Bathroom Shelves Create a Place for Essentials

    A great way to add handy storage to bathrooms of all sizes, a wall-mounted shelf can create the perfect place for a stack of towels, your showering essentials or even the kids’ bath toys. You can opt for a bathroom shelf in glass or metal to complement the style of your room – not only do they look great, but they’re a breeze to keep clean, too.

    For something a bit different, a corner shelf makes great use of your space, like our Minimalist Double Glass shelf. Or for statement style and storage in one, our Noir Wall Hung Shelf Unit ticks all the boxes. And if you’re looking for a way to tempt your family to keep the towels they’re using tidy, our Traditional Towel Shelf, with built-in towel rail could be the answer.

  4. Think about a Vanity Unit with Storage

    Your bathroom basin can be a great place to add in extra storage. Opting for a vanity unit that includes shelving or cupboards maximises your space as well as looking great, too. Our Noir Basin and Frame Unit includes open shelves for stylish accessorising or purely practical storage. While, for families who would rather hide their clutter, the MyPlan Basin Unit keeps everything behind closed doors.

    A wall-hung vanity unit delivers the storage space you need, but can also make your bathroom feel bigger by being raised up off the floor. Like Duravit or Mino – both in classic white and both with generous drawers for makeup, towels, toiletries and more.

  5. Wire Baskets Work for the Smallest Spaces

    When it comes to ideas to keep even the smallest shower cubicle or en-suite tidy, it’s worth considering our wire basket bathroom storage. These are not only good value but take up the minimum of space and give you somewhere to store your shower essentials or bathroom cleaning kit.

    In a range of shapes, sizes and designs, you can choose a wire basket corner unit like our Double Corner Basket for maximum use of space. Or one that fits over your bath, like our Savoy Extendable Rack – perfect for balancing your book on when you’re having a soak. Best of all, all our wire basket options are made from high quality brass that’s rust-resistant, so they stay looking better for longer.

    To Top Up Your Style, Build in a Recessed Unit

    If you’re in the planning stages of your bathroom, wet room or shower room, a recessed unit for storage can make good use of space that you’d otherwise lose. Our recessed units are easy to install, they give a professional finish, they’re waterproof and ready to tile over for a seamless and stylish modern look in your new bathroom.

    You could incorporate one of these recessed shelves along the wall of your bath or within your shower, so you can easily your reach bathing essentials. These storage units also make the perfect place for humidity-loving plants or your favourite candles, to transform your bathroom into a spa

  7. Floor-standing Storage Injects a Wow-factor

    A great way to give a bathroom a luxurious ‘furnished’ feel is to choose floor-standing pieces which have storage integrated. From drawers and cupboards to open shelving, there’s a design for all preferences – whether you like to hide clutter away or create a stylish display.

    From the elegant and traditional look of our Navy Savoy Unit to the minimal and modern appeal of our Noir Craft Basin Unit, you really can choose the style that completes your look, at the same time making sure you’ve got space for towels, toiletries and cleaning kit. And it’s not just larger rooms that can benefit – MyPlan in Arctic White gloss, is great for more compact rooms.

  8. Add a Contemporary Twist with our Wall-mounted Cubes

    An alternative to bathroom shelves and storage cabinets, our wall-hung cubes combine a contemporary stylish look with a handy place to store the essential you need easy access to. They’re not only practical, though – with a curated collection of items arranged on them, from candles to trailing plants, they can add a designer-look finishing touch.

    Our Lincoln Wall Mounted Cubes do just this. In a choice of finishes – White & Oak or Cashmere – they come pre-assembled for hassle-free installation. Minimalist in style, cubes are a fabulous bathroom storage idea if you’re looking for a way to give your bathroom a chic, minimal look without taking up too much valuable space.
