We loved Gregory's recent post, "you know you live in a small space when..." After moving into our new home, we've got one to add to the list--you know you have a small bathroom when you can sit on the toilet and wash your hands at the same time. And while we have ample storage with our bathrooms two medicine cabinets, we are in dire need of a spot to store bigger items. We use a hair dryer and flat iron daily (among other big ticket items) and would love a place to store these necessities nearby. Because we have a pedestal sink, closed storage underneath the sink is not an option. We spotted this great storage solution in the Apartment Therapy Flickr group pool. Matching wicker baskets not only look great as a pair, they give an organic, natural vibe to the bathroom that we like. They're just big enough to hide a few big items each (so you won't have to conduct a search and rescue to find your stuff).
