I admit it, I have a towel storage problem in my house. I love fresh towels, but in my a small house, storage is a big issue. Often times I’ve had to run down stair to my larger utility closet (relatively speaking) to grab a new towel before taking shower. And, of course, there are those times that I forget until I’m just getting out of the shower. “Honey?… Kids?… Anyone?… oh crap!” I’ve bet you’ve been there, done that, too.
That’s why I’m also on looking out for more storage solutions. Especially those that are easy. And not too expensive. These 10 meet the criteria. And they are so cool.
Love this Vintage Laundry Basket for storage solutions for towels (wish I would stumble over one of these beauties when I’m out at yard sales). It just takes up a little floor space, but wow! Look out many big, fluffy towel you could pack in there.
Here’s a variation–and an outside-the-box idea–of the above basket that you could do right now with a wire planter for extra storage. Yeah, it’s made for outdoor use, but it looks mighty fine in the bathroom.
I don’t have the floor space for an extra shelf unit in either of my bathrooms, but if I did, this is what I’d have Mr. Muse build for me. Look at all that extra towel space… and the cool rustic style. The building plans are free for this one.
How clever! Window box wicker baskets and hooks. This could be mounted on any extra wall space, but I like it over the toilet. You could use different size towels (bath or hand) depending on how you fold/roll them.
Here’s another over the toilet towel storage ideas with metal baskets. A little rustic. A smidgen industrial. A lot cool.
There’s nothing wrong with hooks, especially when they are big and black like these… and on their own little shelf. Amanda even shows you how she built this for extra towel storage in her small bathroom.
The designers at Pottery Barn have lots of cool solutions for extra storage. I love that one on the right… a hanging drying rack? Or is that a magazine rack? I’m not sure what it’s intended purpose started out as, but for storing towels… it’s awesome.
I love using the unused space above the door for storage. Just be sure if you’re a shortie like me that you have a step stool handy to access those towels.
Speaking of step stools, isn’t this a cool idea for a little extra towel storage?
Okay, this is not something you’re going to do if you are renting, but if you own… well, let’s use all those nooks and crannies. Cassidy shows you how she did this in-the-wall storage.
