Over Toilet Storage Space Savers in a Small Bathroom Or Dorm


Visitors: 3,282

We all have a small bathroom somewhere in the house that makes it tough to store the essential linens and other bath supplies. A traditional linen cabinet wont’ quite fit. It can be a master bath that's just not as large as we would like, or even a second bath or the kids bathroom.

One area that is often unused, especially in a second bath, is the area over the toilet. Some bathrooms come with a linen cabinet hung on the wall over the toilet, but often this space is unused.

You can make use of this space by installing a linen cabinet over the toilet, but that is a lot of work and expense. You can also install simple shelves in this space as well, but while open shelves may be functional and relatively easy to install, may not fit the decor of the room too well.

A free standing storage unit that straddles the toilet is often a great compromise. While costing more than simple shelves, They come in wide range of styles, from simple chrome units with open shelves, to French Country style with the traditional hardwood finishes and doors to hide the shelf contents and add to the decor of the room. Almost any look can be matched with this approach.

College Dorm Bathrooms Storage - College dorms can present their own challenge for bathroom storage. While many dorms have a large shared bathroom facility, the trend these days is to create shared bathroom spaces in a smaller setting, like suite rooms or small dorm apartments, where you typically have 4 occupants sharing a bathroom. This can be a challenge, especially with girls. To make the best use of this space, a free standing over the toilet storage rack or stand like a Spacesaver can be a much appreciated addition, as this space is often otherwise unused and is often quite a bit of space, sometimes three shelves of storage.

Small bathrooms can be a storage challenge, but by thinking creatively you can find space where none was before.
