Decorative storage boxes
If the idea of open shelving scares you, hide away clutter and personal items in beautiful display boxes such as this pressed tin case and printed boxes, which have been tucked neatly into an Ikea 'Norden' sideboard.
A customised stool
A small stool is all you need to keep the essentials within close reach. This one, customised with white paint, does the job without detracting from the Victoria + Albert 'Napoli' volcanic limestone bath.
In lieu of a standard vanity, this timber plinth topped with natural seagrass baskets keeps bathroom accoutrements organised below a slim Omvivo washplane. Try Pottery Barn for similar baskets.
DIY ladder towel rack
Ladders make an ideal DIY towel rack - a necessity in every bathroom. If you have one handy, simply lean it against a wall, making sure it is secure and not obstructing your shower entry.
Freestanding basins often mean little or no storage. Floating shelves are the perfect solution, saving floor space and keeping your bathroom tidy. Opt for white to create the look of more space.
