Bathroom storage ideas for your bath & shower
Share the bathroom with a few people, and toiletries can soon get out of control. We’re sharing some great ways to keep everything organised and tidy below – check them out!
1. Over-the-bath shelf
Over-the-bath shelves are all the rage, and it’s no wonder! Not only do they provide a practical, out-of-the-way solution for storing toiletries, but they also look pretty.
Pick one up today and your bathroom will be well on the way to being Pinterest-worthy.
2. Fruit & veg stand
No shelf space? Invent some of your own using a tiered storage basket.
These can either be placed on the floor by your bath, or on the bath ledge if you have room. They’re a wonderful way to organise some of your more aesthetic-looking supplies and requires very little work.
3. Bathroom storage ideas for the kids’ toys
Whilst we’re on the topic of tiered baskets, why not create a new bathroom storage system for the kids’ toys using hanging baskets? This will keep everything out of the way, and also enable the toys to drain, preventing mould and nasty smells.
4. Hanging toiletries organiser
Are you inundated with toiletries? What you need is a hanging shower organiser.
Just like a classic over-the-door organiser, it has separate pockets to keep all your toiletries nice and tidy.
5. Clever bath panel storage
There are bath panels and then there are bath panels.
Victorian Plumbing’s Stowaway bath panels are so unique. Not only do they provide you with more storage, but they make everything easy to access whilst being unvisible to the human eye.
We definitely want one – do you?
6. Suction cup shower storage
Bathroom storage ideas don’t get much cheaper than this.
If you’re looking for a simple solution for your shampoo, shower gel and conditioner, this suction cup idea from Dollar Store Crafts could be perfect for you.
All you need are some suction cups and hair ties – it really couldn’t be easier.
More toiletries than you know what to do with? Our bathroom storage ideas have you covered! Check them out below.
7. Compact shelves for every space
Even the smallest of spaces can be utilised for storing toiletries in your bathroom.
In the above photo, Kevin And Amanda show us that with a bit of stylish organisation of your products, visible shelving can be squeezed onto just about every wall, and be a great bathroom feature.
8. Over-the-sink bathroom storage
Still need space for those toiletries? We have loads of other great bathroom storage ideas for you, including this nifty over-the-sink storage crate from Itsy Bits And Pieces.
What a great way to upcycle an old vintage item and create extra storage too.
9. DIY compact cabinet storage
What a brilliant idea! We love the added labels.
If you want to keep all your toiletries organised out-of-view, why not build some handy compartments on the back of your bathroom cabinet doors?
Remodel-aholic has shared a step-by-step tutorial for this wonderful storage solution on her site. Go take a look – it’s surprisingly simple!
10. Under sink storage unit
No unit under the sink? No problem! You can pick up something fairy cheaply that will fit around your sink pedestal and under the basin to give you even more bathroom storage.
The benefit of this is that it takes up no extra space and is completely out of the way. You’ll even be able to use the top of the cabinet as a shelf – genius!
We particularly like the one shown above from House Of Bath which is just £49.95 – a great investment.
11. DIY sink pedestal cover
Want an even cheaper under-the-sink solution? If you’ve got some basic sewing skills, it will be easy to knock up a pretty ‘skirt’ for your sink.
This will act as a curtain to hide anything you want to store underneath – think storage boxes, and lots of them!

Is your makeup-brush collection getting out of control? Or perhaps you’re sick of having to untangle your hairdryer wire everytime you want to use it? Whatever the problem, the bathroom storage ideas below will take care of all your tools and electricals.
12. DIY copper cup organisers for your bathroom wall
Now, this really is the perfect way to store all your makeup and tools. A Beautiful Mess upcycled some plain copper cups and mounted them onto a plank of wood, which they then fixed to the wall.
If you’ve run out of furniture storgae space, making use of the walls is a great way around it, and this is one of the most aesthetic ways of doing so.
13. Lazy Susan storage solution
If you thought Lazy Susans were only for use in the kitchen, think again!
Lazy Susans are a bathroom storage solution in themselves, and the perfect place to keep all your nail varnishes, makeup brushes, preening tools and more.
14. Hanging organiser for your bathroom supplies
In keeping with the pretty ideas above is this hanging organiser by Glamour.
It’s a budget-friendly option, requiring just a small amount of work but yielding amazing results. The project is customisable, meaning you can choose the distance between each bucket.
With that in mind, it’s a great option for storing your hairbrushes, straighteners, hair dryers and other electricals.
15. Magnetic wall strip for your preening & grooming
Who knew bathroom storage ideas could be so simple?
Dark Room And Dearly has made such good use of this IKEA magnetic knife rack, by using it in her bathroom to store tweezers, scissors, bobby pins and more.
Not only is this a wonderful storage solution, but it will keep sharp items out of the kids’ grasps too.
Big family? Don’t allow towels to be left lying around all over the place. Get yourself a towel organisation system so no one has any excuses to leave a mess lying around.
16. Back-of-the-door towel rails
If you don’t have room for a towel rack in your bathroom, back-of-the-door towel rails could be the ideal solution.
Rails are easy to come by, cheap, and you only need very basic DIY skills to put them up. If you think this would be great in your bathroom, head over the Jenna Burger for the tutorial.
17. Over-the-door storage
Back-of-the-door; over-the-door – who knew that your bathroom door could be transformed in so many ways.
Over the door storage will provide you with a super tidy and sleek space to store even more towels. With this project, a bit of work goes a long way, and you’ll love this permanent shelf for years to come.
