Most bathrooms don’t have an abundance of space or storage, so you might need to get a little creative. Keeping towels in the bathroom makes it easy to grab a new one when you need it. Towel storage is especially tight in small guest bathrooms or half baths that often don’t have any linen closets or cabinet storage space. Try one of these ideas to keep towels handy.
Why not put up a shelf in the bathroom? It’s an attractive and simple solution for keeping your towels and other bathroom supplies handy. You take advantage of the wall space that would otherwise go unused. Look for a shelf that has a towel bar or hooks underneath. This gives you an extra spot to hang towels. The rest of the towels can be folded or rolled and stacked on top of the shelves.
Baskets are an inexpensive and attractive storage solution for bathrooms. You can get baskets in a variety of sizes, shapes, colors and materials. Go with a traditional wicker basket, or try something different like a metal basket. You can sit the basket in any small area of the bathroom. Another option is to hang the basket on the wall. Put a few nails or screws in the wall. Hang the flat bottom of the basket on the nails against the wall. You have an instant basket shelf for holding the extra towels in the bathroom.
Bench or Ottoman
This towel storage solution serves a dual purpose: you have a place to hide your towels and you add some seating to the bathroom. Use a small bench or ottoman with storage inside as a seat for the bathroom vanity. You can tuck the extra towels inside the seating. They stay hidden and clean because they aren’t out in the open where they can gather dust.
Have an old wine rack you no longer use? Put it in the bathroom. Instead of filling it with your favorite vino, roll your extra bathroom towels and slide them into the slots on the wine rack. If you have some counter space, you can use a freestanding wine rack. If space is limited, use a wine rack that hangs on the wall.
