Is your bathroom on the smaller side? No worries. There are plenty of clever storage ideas to solve your organization dilemmas — even when you don’t have much space to work with. Before you get started, though, be sure to purge the non-essentials. You’ll want to reserve every inch of bathroom space for must-have items and move the other stuff elsewhere in your DFW home. Ready? Let’s get organized.
1. Look for any unused space. The first step in being savvy with your space is uncovering all the hidden nooks and crannies. Could you add an extra towel rack or storage cabinet on the wall? Are you making use of your shower’s niche space? Can you add a shelf under your vanity to create multi-tiered storage? Search for any spots that are being underutilized.
2. Think beyond the basics. When coming up with storage ideas for your bathroom, don’t limit yourself to solutions that are strictly for the bathroom. For example, a utensil holder meant for the kitchen could do double-duty as bathroom storage. Or, a large decorative bowl could be repurposed as a place to keep toilet paper close at hand. Here are a few more small-bathroom solutions for storing toilet paper.
3. Prettify with a sink skirt. When you’re short on space in the bathroom, use the space beneath the sink. If you don’t want the area to look cluttered, add a patterned sink skirt to dress it up. It’ll hide the bathroom products without detracting from the overall serenity of the space, and it adds some vintage pizzazz to boot.

4. Add a peg rail. In addition to an over-the-door hook for hanging a bathrobe or bath towels, install a peg rail near your sink or shower. If there’s limited counter or shower space, this is a charming way to keep a towel or loofah within reach. For a pop of color, you could even hang a few stems of fresh-cut flowers from the pegs.
5. Consider a custom approach. When all the other storage ideas aren’t cutting it, it may be time to bring in a professional. This will allow you to tailor even the tiniest bathroom to your specific needs. Think of all the possibilities: custom shelving, niches, armoires, and more!
With some smart storage ideas, your bathroom can be a serene, well-organized room. You don’t need a lot of space to add some structure and style — just a few well-thought-out strategies. Which ones will you try?
