We recently “moved into” our master bathroom and I can’t tell you how nice it is to have a bathroom in our master bedroom again. I don’t have to stumble down the hall in the middle of the night anymore to go potty…(middle of the night potty trips are getting to be frequent and bound to get worse as this preggo lady gets more preggo!)
The only downside of our en-suite master bathroom is that it is extremely small and awkward (but check out how we transformed it into an adorable farmhouse style master bathroom).
I’m still trying to get everything organized and pretty in there with my limited storage space, so I thought I would share with you some of the great Small Bathroom Ideas I’ve found recently!
12 Small Bathroom Ideas
Take advantage of every hanging space possible.
I love how Jessica from Four Generations One Roof used the bathroom cabinet to hang a basket next to the toilet for toilet paper storage in this Bathroom Makeover, brilliant!
No wall space for towel bars? Use the back of the door! I love this great idea from Jenna Burger.
There’s usually always space above your toilet, so don’t forget about that! See how we added these floating shelves above the toilet in our farmhouse bathroom. Check out this post if you’re looking for more storage above toilet ideas!
Upcycle items for creative storage.
This old wood-divided box makes great storage for the bathroom when hung above the sink as featured on Itsy Bits and Pieces here.
Homeroad uses some wire baskets and an old wooden crate to make this fun wall shelf for extra bathroom storage. She also shows off this great driftwood over the door shelf among other Bathroom Storage Solutions here.
Look high and low for storage opportunities.
…like above the door! The 2 Seasons gives a great tutorial on how to build an above-the-door storage shelf.
Stay insanely organized.
It’s more important than ever to make sure your small bathroom space is as organized as it could be. This under-the-sink storage idea is to keep things neat and tidy. Mary Organizes has some other great Bathroom Organizing tips here as well.
Take back your counter space.
Let’s face it, you’re probably working with limited counter space as it is, right? Where are you supposed to set that cup of coffee while you get ready every morning? I love how Hart’s Desire Photography mounted her soap on the wall with this DIY salvaged wood shelf. She always gives a great tutorial on how to make this soap dispenser here.
Every bit of reclaimed counter space is helpful. This DIY Mason Jar Organizer takes the storage up to the wall, rather than on the counter. The DIY Playbook does a great job showing you how to make this fun DIY project.
Don’t forget about storage space in the walls between studs.
Turtles and Tails show us some creative storage ideas on this Bathroom Renovation Reveal, but these are two of my favorites. I love the built-in medicine cabinet and toilet paper holder.
Take advantage of the inside of your cabinet doors.
Crafting in the Rain shares a great tutorial on how to make these fun PVC Pipe Toothbrush Holders for the inside of the cabinet door.
Having a small bathroom is definitely an inconvenience, but there are tons of different ways to keep small bathrooms organized. It is all about taking advantage of every space possible, like on top of the door frames, inside wall studs, and on the walls.
