Many older homes are plagued with small bathrooms in tight areas where expansion is nearly impossible. But, a small bathroom doesn’t have to be a storage curse. We pulled these pictures from Pinterest in our search for ideas to transform a small, cluttered bathroom into one of style and convenience.

Check out how you might be able to gain storage without losing a lot of valuable space!

Portable Bathroom Shelving Units and Drawers

If you don’t like airing your makeup collection to the guests, try using some portable storage shelves that can be easily wheeled out when hosting parties or having company.

Shelving, baskets, and containers are a great way to turn the space over your toilet into a visually pleasing storage area.  This particular design is well planned and executed.

What a great way to use an otherwise wasted space!  Placing a shelf over your door to store items that aren’t often used is an excellent way to free up some space for items you like to have more accessible.

Choosing a sink that is mounted on top of your counter space frees up the area under your sink for storage.

Wall mounting your faucet fixtures is a great way to include a narrow sink and vanity without taking up too much of the room you have to move around in your small bathroom.

What is your favorite storage solution for your small bathroom?

      We’re not certain on where that one came from – but very similar models are available at stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, Target and Kmart.

    Hi Breanna – We found this great tool that you can use to grab colors from pictures: – it’s from Sherwin Williams and you can use any picture and it will tell you what the color is and give you the numbers to go get a gallon mixed!

    We saw the design on those towels at BedBathandBeyond – but the latice-work is becoming more and more popular this summer, so expect to see it popping up everywhere!

    I am looking for shelves like in the second picture, do you happen to know what the dimensions are and where a good place is to find some. I have looked online quite a bit, but having more trouble than I fist anticipated.

      Hi Mandie,

      Yes, I custom do these shelves all the time. Basically you can have someone make a hollow shelf and you can insert a bracket into it. Depending on the amount of weight you are going to be putting on the shelves will depend on what the bracket can support. I usually hide the leg behind the drywall and screw it into the studd, so you would have to redo the drywall on the wall. The picture you are referring to would need that kind of support. I hope this answered your question.
