I am addicted to using modern and creative shelving in our home, hence in regards small bathroom decorating ideas, my first tip is this: create space where there wasn’t any previously!

How? With – Floating Shelves.

Floating shelves are not only cheap and easy to install, but they aren’t limited to where they can be placed as you can place them anywhere. The most popular place for small bathrooms is above the toilet (just like our over toilet storage tip) or simply, on any empty wall or space in your bathroom.

To organize your accessories on the shelves, simply place a few baskets, hand towels and a few jars and decorations and you are set to go. This is one of the simplest and easy small bathroom decorating idea at your fingertips.

Another handy way is to place a floating shelf above the sink and below the mirror. It’s actually a place that is often overlooked but it’s not only excellent for extra storage, it’s perfect for those little beauty items that we use most often and need in easy reach.

This means you can place extra bathroom essentials, on the sink top as well as on the floating shelf above it.

For essential items such as hairdryers and strengtheners, brushes and hairspray that we use nearly everyday, one of the best storage ideas for small bedrooms is to install a storage unit on the inside of the cabinet door.

It not only looks pretty, it’s super useful aswell.

This is perfect to place the items you use the most in an ‘easy to grab and use’ way.

This an excellent and cheap way to make the most of your storage space by arranging your devices and accessories in an organized way to make room for everything else that needs to be stored aswell.

Bathroom Baskets at Every Opportunity

If your bathroom cabinet is elevated above the ground, why not take advantage of the space by placing baskets or wooden boxes underneath?

Why let the space underneath your bathroom cabinet be lost when it can be used as storage space. Remember, your bathroom is small enough as it is, let’s make the most of it. These are also an excellent idea to place bathroom towels and mats for so they can be easily reached by everyone in the family.

My word of advice – make it pretty by investing in quality baskets or storage hampers. Don’t opt for cheap plastic containers, otherwise you’ll just make your bathroom look tacky (and kinda like you are moving in or out).

My Advice: Invest in wicker baskets or wooden boxes and jazz them up with a bit of ribbon. The seagrass range above are the most popular option.
