The bathroom may be the room in the house in which organisation plays the most important role. Because we are all somewhat rushed in the morning, every minute counts, we cannot waste time trying to find a dry towel or that new tube of toothpaste. In the ideal case, everyday items should be right at hand’s reach, but here we are often in a quandary, because we also want the bathroom to look clean and not cluttered. Today we look at some creations from our experts that can help remedy the situation, because they combine beautiful design with functionality. Let yourself be inspired by these different bathroom storage options.

Cabinets under the sink

In modern bathrooms we more and more frequently find cabinets installed under the sink. These offer a lot of advantages, including that the drawers of these cabinets tend to be extra large, providing space to store many things. In order to provide more structure, equip your drawers with small boxes, trays or partitions.


Washbasins, which not only provide plenty of storage space, but also have a distinctive look, can bring a special flair to the bathroom. This model, for example, uses a combination of wood and natural stone to achieve an eye-catching look that is perfect for a Mediterranean or rustic style room.

Flexible and mobile

Especially in large bathrooms, it is nice to have storage space that is flexible and mobile. This trolley can be a useful piece of furniture at the sink, sit rather inconspicuously in the corner or serve as a side table next to the bathtub. The storage space of the trolley can be customised with various shelves, trays and rotating drawers.

Compact design

This stone sink basin is an extremely compact model. The slim design fits nicely in the corner of the bathroom and even offers additional storage space. A piece like this is a good choice if your bathroom is a little on the smaller side.

Using wood

Wood and stone are the most popular materials when it comes to the decoration of the bathroom. To achieve a harmonious effect, it is advisable to pay attention to the using the same materials or similar colours. Combining wood and natural stone in similar or complementary shades can have an especially nice effect. A beautiful wooden shelf also has the advantage of bringing warmth and comfort to the bathroom. For those who have concerns that wooden furniture is not suitable for the bathroom, don’t worry! As long as the material is of a high quality and sufficiently sealed, it is perfectly suitable for use in wet areas.

Bathtub storage

In some models, the bathtub can become an unexpected place for storage. The base of some tubs can be fitted with shelves or small compartments perfect for holding shampoos and soaps right where we need them.

Mirror cabinet

The mirror cabinet is a classic when it comes to storage space in the bathroom. But now we can officially say goodbye to those old plastic cabinets, because modern mirror cabinets are made with a beautiful design. Simple yet elegant is the motto. The rather narrow storage space in mirror cabinets should ideally only be used for the things we need for our morning and evening routines, like toothpaste and face cream.
