Getting ready in the morning (especially when you're sharing a bathroom with housemates) is a challenge. Add to that the frequency of running behind schedule and all bets are off. So bathroom storage must be creative which will help in creating that streamlined morning routine. Ideas, pics and links after the jump.
Shelving might be a no brainer but placement is key. We like to maximize vertical space and have seen shelving over the doorway work wonders. We've also stayed at hotels where the shelving was actually in the shower (placed high so the towels don't get soaked).
While we really like the idea of this storage caddy around a pedestal sink, we think we might kick it up a notch and spray paint it gold to add some glamour to the powder room.
Baskets are great for three reasons--they add great texture to a room and you can't see what's inside. Plus, you can always find very inexpensive options at discount stores.
While this image is lacking in quality, the idea is first rate. Using the little nook that most bathrooms have between the sink and the shower, is a great place to maximize space. Any sort of low, decorative stool will work and you instantly have a place to put towels.
