Easy DIY Small Bathroom Storage Ideas and Solutions
If you’re fed up with little or no place to put your bathroom accoutrements, look no further than these low-cost DIY small bathroom storage ideas and solutions to give you the space you desire.
Let’s admit it: It’s frustrating when you need a place to put your bath supplies and towels but there’s nowhere to go.
But what if I told you that it’s not as difficult as you might think to squeeze addition storage space from your tiny bathroom?
Here are some of my favorite DIY ideas that won’t break one’s budget but is huge on providing the space you need in your bathroom:
1. Stacked Shelves
If you’re really fighting small bathroom storage, these floating shelves give the illusion of height but they don’t take up more space than is needed. I love the wicker accents. It’s bright and cheery and 100% useable space. And, if you’re really tight for space, use stacked corner shelving.
2. Under Cabinet Storage
Next time you’re over at your local dollar or discount store, look for stacked bins and trays. Varying the sizes, you can see it’s just a matter of sliding them in and filling them. No tools needed. And, for even more storage, check out the clear plastic door units. Easily mounted and accessed.

4. Bathroom Organization System Using Bars and Hooks
We all have towel racks but are they truly being utilized to their full potential? Maybe not. Here’s a super organizational hack that is super for those of us that are budget-minded. With just a few drop hooks and hanging baskets, you can see how easy it is to increase your storage with little sweat equity.

DID YOU KNOW? You can use “S” hooks (plastic or stainless steel) or even shower hooks to hang baskets, hair dryers, curling irons and more from towel racks.
5. Over the Toilet Storage

Or, if you aren’t handy with a hammer or saw, try a pre-built free-standing unit that’s easily assembled and provides ample storage behind the commode to give you tons of extra space where there once was none.
6. Above the Door Storage
One of the least under used areas everywhere, seems to be right above the door. The upper frame offers a natural support for your shelf. Then, it’s just a matter of adding a brace or two. Neat and clean.

6. Rustic Storage
I live this idea for using simple shelf brackets and rustic boards for an instant small bathroom storage solution. You can easily vary the size of the shelves and placement, depending upon where you have available wall space. I love the use of see-through glass jars for some items, while wicker baskets are utilized to corral beauty items.

7. Inverted Shelving
Many local home improvement stores offer premade shelves. Some come prefinished while others need a coat or two of paint or stain. Either way, you can quickly create the look by anchoring the shelves upside down. And, if you want to “hide” some of your essential stuff, use small wicker baskets.

8. Under Cabinet Drawer Systems
If you truly have little space to spare in your bathroom, then adding additional drawers might just be the ticket. The upper drawer system fits around the sink pipes and provides sling supports for what normally would be considered dead space under your cabinet. The lower tray (which BYW is a recycled drawer) can be a standalone or you could retrofit drawer slides for that too, for ease of reaching all of your supplies and quick cleaning.
