Having enough storage space in your home can sometimes be hard to achieve, particularly when you have a small space to work with. That's why getting storage right from the offset is so important, especially for a bathroom where cleanliness and hygiene is a top priority.

So how can you ensure you have the right amount of storage when your bathroom is on the smaller side? We’ve come up with seven small bathroom storage hacks that will help you when renovating your bathroom!


1. Opt for a small bathroom cabinet

When you have limited room in your bathroom, it’s important to avoid adding too many elements that will take up further space. A great way to avoid this while still creating storage, is with a small bathroom cabinet.

Not only will these cabinets give you the extra storage you need but they are hung on the wall above your basin, so they don’t take up any additional space in the room.


2. Take advantage of mirrors

Mirrors are a great way to open up a room! With the right positioning they will create an illusion of space that will make even a small bathroom feel bigger.

Better yet, opt for a mirrored cabinet and get storage and space all in the one unit! A built in shaving cabinet can often be recessed into your wall, giving you streamlined storage and the perfect height and position where you need it most.

Wall hung accessories won’t take up too much space in the room and when matched to taps and showers, can tie a room together beautifully.

6. Add a shower niche

Shower Niches are recessed shelves in the cavity of the shower that allow you to store your haircare and body products. These are a great way to declutter your shower, without taking up any extra room and make for a chic finish to your bathroom.

Pair this with a dual head shower on a rail, to complete the look. Combining an overhead rain shower with a hand shower you can get the luxury showering experience (and practical too) without the huge footprint of a double shower space.

7. Choose a light colour palette

Keep your space light and bright in order to give the illusion of scale. A white or neutral colour palette will open a space up as opposed to a darker one. Try sandy wood tones and light walls, complimented with gold or black taps to add some depth to the room.

A smaller bathroom doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style to fit everything in. In fact, these bathroom storage ideas will actually help you save on space, while still providing ample storage for your bathroom.

Small Kitchen Renovation

1. Consider building in the essentials to your cabinet design. Adding a built in microwave or bin cupboard, gives you much more bench space and room around your kitchen to move. These essentials are often forgotten about and can take up significant room.

2. Combining your eating / dining area with your benchtop, is a great solution for small spaces. Allowing your benchtop to overhang on one side or on an island can instantly serve as your eatery with a few stools.

3. Do you like to use your dishwasher and only use your sink to rinse dishes? If space is a premium, consider only installing a single bowl kitchen sink, giving you more bench space and kitchen layout options.

4. Pull out pantries are a sensational solution for narrow kitchens. For a space as narrow as 300mm a pull out pantry can add so much extra storage space for the essentials!
