One of the most important rooms in the house is irrefutably the bathroom. Utilised in the morning, evening and throughout the day, a washroom is essential to comfortable domestic life. Now, we all have an idea of our dream bathroom, a fabulously spacious area replete with gorgeous bath, walk-in shower, and luxury basin with mirror. However, the reality is generally a far cry from the dream. Bathrooms tend to be neglected areas within a dwelling; perfunctory spaces that are compact, and often designed to avoid subtracting vital square metres from the living areas of the home. So how does one ensure their bathroom has enough space to store all of the requisite amenities?

Here at homify we love organisation and space saving solutions for small dwellings. Today we are going to be taking a look at 9 ways to boost storage space in your bathroom, which are sure to improve the general functioning and appearance of your washroom. Read on to learn more!

1. Get smart with technology

These days there is a plethora of nifty gadgets and accessories that can make your life easier. This example shows a simple cupboard can work in different ways to bring you the space-boosting solution you need. If you need assistance, you can always chat to a professional.

2. Under-sink storage

The most common way to boost storage space is under-sink. Look at your current vanity and ask yourself if it could work in a more practical way.

3. Medicine cupboard storage

Don’t ignore the medicine cabinet! Not simply for medicine, this handy above-sink storage can hold all manner of bathroom necessities.

4. Segment your drawers

Drawer organisation is an easy and surprisingly satisfying way to boost space in your bathroom. Do you really need all of those expired medicines, old lotions and shabby accessories? Audit your drawers and watch the space instantly appear.

5. The freestanding ladder

7. Inventive bath storage

This bath ticks all of the storage space-boosting boxes! Perfect if space is at a minimum, this bath is also incredibly opulent and luxurious.
