Easy DIY Space-Saving Solutions for Your Bathroom

We’re always looking for more storage space or timesaving tips to make our daily routines a little easier, but we don’t always have the extra time or cash to do it. And for all of you ladies out there – you know all too well how quickly hair and makeup products can build up, which makes it hard to find places to store it all. Well, you’re in luck, because we have found some fun and fast ways to add touches of convenience to your bathroom without spending too much time and money. The best part is that you can do all of these yourself!

Hang a Bookshelf Above the Door

This is the perfect spot to store extra towels, soap, shampoo and other bathroom supplies that you don’t have the space for in your vanity or medicine cabinet.

Add Multiple Towel Racks Behind the Door

Extra Tip: You can also add “S” hooks to your existing towel bars to create more space for drying and hanging towels. You can even use a ladder as a rustic décor piece for hanging extra towels. Wall mounted wine racks can also transform into holders for rolled towels (if you have the wall space).

Use a Stacked Plate Rack to Save Counter Space and Add Elegance

Extra tip: If you don’t have a stacked plate rack, you can make one yourself using a small plate and candlesticks. You can also use a Lazy Susan in the bathroom (on the counter or inside the vanity) for storing additional products like moisturizers, lotions and hair products.

Organize Bathroom Toiletries in a Drawer Using a Kitchen Utensil Tray

This is perfect for a shallow drawer in your bathroom that you just can’t seem to keep organized! Just make sure to measure the inside of your drawer so you don’t find yourself with a tray that’s too big or small.

Hang a Second Curtain Rod in the Shower for Extra Storage Space

If you have a shower that doesn’t have a lot of shelf space for your shampoos, conditioners, soaps, luffas, razors, etc., you can hang another shower rod inside your shower to hang hooks for more items. Some shower heads don’t allow a shower caddy to hang from them (due to size, structure or placement), so this is the perfect alternative storage solution. A mesh over-the-door shoe organizer can also provide the space you need (if you have one lying around the house).

Hang Spice Racks to Keep Hair Products Easily Accessible and Organized

Extra Tip: You can even hang spice racks inside the doors of your vanity if you don’t want all of your products prominently displayed to your guests. In addition to spice racks, you can also add hooks to the inside wall of your vanity for hanging curling irons and hair dryers. You can also place a magnetic strip in the back of your medicine cabinet to store bobby pins, tweezers, nail clippers and other small metal items.
