Bath racks are much underrated, they sit across the bath out of the way, yet can hold all manner of items and can provide that vital extra bit of storage in a tiny bathroom. For those of you who love reading in the bath you can prop your book up together with your favourite scented candle and glass of gin (just us?!). This white bamboo rack has a white painted finish and looks great with these pale pink accessories. 

2. Tidy up all those toothbrushes with pretty bathroom storage

This clever adjustable shower caddy is both versatile and practical. It hangs over your shower head and the holes allow the water to drain through it. There are two storage trays for essentials like razors, shower gel and shampoo and one at the top for soap, so no slipping and sliding while you try to find it! Plus you can adjust the heights of the trays for smaller members of the family to reach. 

4. The most versatile bathroom storage? The basket

Until a few years ago we didn’t fully appreciate the versatility of a good sized basket. Now, we use them for everything – as decorative plant holders, storage for towels, magazines, toys, laundry, they double as bins and they’re also fab for storing toilet rolls. This gorgeous braided basket is from Weaver Green and it certainly looks at home in a bathroom, so invest in a couple and put it to use to help clear your bathroom clutter. 

5. Invest in drawer organisers for bathrooms

We all have ‘that’ drawer of unused bits and pieces don’t we? Bathroom drawers can be full of old makeup, missing tops and cotton wool. Ikea is the ultimate store for fabulously nifty storage ideas – in the left drawer you can see their GODMORGON clear plastic box range, and on the right are their NORDRANA baskets, both super useful for getting tidy.
