Updated: Oct 26, 2021

Despite my efforts to transition into a more minimalistic lifestyle, I find myself with an excessive amount of bathroom items. Essentials oils, soaps, bath salts, lotions, toiletries…the urban homesteader in me can’t stop. Nothing says a relaxing bath like your own special blended bath salts!

Even if you don’t find yourself in the odd tug-of-war that I am currently in, bathrooms are one place where extra storage is key. Often times the tiniest spaces in our homes, they are packed with ointments, beauty products, hair tools, towels/linens, extra tissue boxes and toilet paper, toiletries, etc. Where do you put all this stuff?

Perhaps you’re lucky and have bathrooms with ample amounts of drawers and storage options, but if you are like me, a current renter, you may have some challenges when it comes to adding storage into your already existing space.

But fear not, these challenges bring creative solutions. So if you’re vying for some extra storage in your tiny bathroom, try these simple tips. No sledge hammers required!
