towel hooks with bench storage and cabinet storage for kids bath

Nothing worse during bath time when holding a slicked up baby than reaching for a towel to find you forgot to get it out of the linen closet….or needing shampoo that is in the cabinet.

Your choices? Hold a dripping baby while you retrieve the items needed, call for help, or do without. The first choice is the most common solution…..or you could permanently solve the bathroom storage problem ahead of time.

Time to get resourceful looking at every wall, corner, and cabinet as a possible solution for out of reach supplies problem. Time to think “unique” for kids’ bathroom storage when the room is heavily used and space is limited.

Six different methods to use in creating easy to reach storage: on the wall, in the wall, under the counter, over the toilet, in the tub, or beside the tub. Take a look at these unique ideas for applying these 6 methods.

ON THE WALL – Wet towels need a place to dry. Make it fun and the kids will be more likely to hang up their towels instead of piling on the floor. Also, put a basket next to the tub with extras.

IN THE WALL – Cut a niche and add shelves. Doesn’t have to be deep to be enough for toys, towels, or toiletries. Love the basket storage for toilet paper!

UNDER THE COUNTER – Open storage is kid-friendly and easy to reach for quick mop-ups or putting items away after use. Add washable containers for an extra added measure of organization. Love the pullout step stool making use of every inch!

OVER THE TOILET – Up the wall with floating shelves for extra storage. Doesn’t get any handier than that!

BESIDE THE TUB – Freestanding shelves or “trees” work well for hanging towels or bags of toys. Just make sure the base is sturdy and tip proof.
