Ask any woman in the house, and she’ll tell you how she will appreciate a seat in the bathroom so she can shave her legs or wait for her face mask to dry. A bathroom seat can have a vanity or a cubby hole to keep hampers. You can keep pressed clothes on the top of the seat, too, and use the space beneath to store towels or laundry.

Ladder shelves help utilize vertical spaces and are a practical solution when you have limited bathroom space. They come in many innovative designs to add something decorative to the bathroom. From used clothes to bath towels, you can use them for anything. Some of them even have removable wire baskets or shelves.

Another intelligent way to use the maximum amount of wall space in the bathroom is the linen tower. It can be fitted into the smallest bathroom spaces between other cabinets or fill gaps.

6) Wicker Basket
We generally keep baskets hidden in the vanity beneath the sink or bench seating to throw our bathroom waste away. You can also use baskets for clothes that need to go to the washing machine. You can keep them beneath the cubby seat. Remember to pick a portable basket and place it in such a way that it’s easy for you to access and clean out.

Recessed shelves or cabinets are set into the wall so that all the free space on walls to cater to your bathroom storage needs. These can have open shelves or hide behind a mirror or cabinet door. They are perfect for making the best use of the wall when the floor space is not enough to place freestanding shelves or cabinets.
