Here’s Where to Put all That Toilet Paper in Your Teeny Tiny Bathroom
One of the most troubling things about a tiny bathroom is the lack of storage, and one of the most troubling things about the lack of storage is: Where are you going to put all the toilet paper? Best to only buy what you really need, especially in this current situation. But even still, you’ll probably want a spot to stash those extra few rolls away. Here are some creative solutions that will help you squeeze in a little more storage space into your small bath.
Toilet Paper Stand
Over-the-Tank Roll Reserve
Toilet Paper Stocker
Montanez Twist Rectangle Metal/Wire Basket
Sure, you could just stack rolls of toilet paper above the toilet right on the top of the tank. But putting them in a basket, like this wire bin, makes this strategy look like more of a deliberate design decision. Using a basket will keep this area neater by providing a physical limit to what you can fit here. In other words, the less overflowing your basket, the less cluttered your bathroom will look.

Seagrass Paper Holder
24 inch Tall Glass Cylinder Vase
Bathroom Storage Cart
This little cart is big enough for a roll of toilet paper (and for multiples on the lower tiers, if you stack them) but still small enough to tuck into the narrowest spots. It’s a nice way to fill the gap between the toilet and a vanity or the space between the toilet and the wall.

Sydney Floating Wall Shelf
Mounting a simple shelf above your door will provide you with a spot for spare rolls. Make sure you have a step stool handy, so you can easily access them when you run out. You can also use a shelf like this above the toilet or anywhere near it if you want to make replenishing even easier.

IKEA TRONES Storage Cabinet
IKEA’s super-versatile TRONES shoe/ storage cabinets are only about seven inches deep, which makes them perfect for TP storage—and perfect for tucking into small nooks and crannies. These wall mount solutions are sold in sets of two, so you’ll have an extra to use in your entry or near a closet. Or you can build out an above the toilet storage unit with two pairs, as shown above. This homeowner even worked a visible shelf for toilet paper into the setup.
