Small Bathroom Storage Ideas from 5 Aussie Stores

If you’re anything like me, you’re in dire need of some small bathroom storage ideas. Actually, even ample bathrooms never seem to have enough space, do they? So consider this a list of places to get cool storage from, regardless of your bathroom size. Though I do think if you’re tight on space, this post will be a godsend!

Bathrooms tend to have storage contained in the vanity alone. If you’re lucky enough to have large drawers in your vanity, I’m insanely jealous. But most of us have to live with a small set of cupboards underneath the sink and that’s about it. So, you gotta look to other ways to cram in all your bathroom essentials, don’t you?

And on that note, lemme know you some of the best places to get all sorts of small bathroom storage ideas from. Plus the latest style buys from your fave brands, as always!

Oh and if you want to get inspo to design the shell of your bathroom, you’ll die over this post.

IKEA got you Covered!

Alright, so IKEA is my church. You know this. Although I often dabble in the competitive religion known as Kmart worship, IKEA is still the God I pray to (for the most part).

The good news is that IKEA’s a fab go-to for slimline storage shelves, and the options here are great in a small bathroom because they take up next to no space and can be easily moved around.

The colour story features loads of blonde timber, which means the pieces will work well into a lot of contemporary bathrooms. The bathroom, let’s face it, can often feel cold and clinical. All that white tile and stainless steel can be a little sterile, don’t you think?

A good dose of blonde timber is an awesome way to warm up this room, and it pairs nicely with white or grey towels. Half the fun is decorating the shelves, after all.

Kmart is my other Go-to

The best part of being a spiritual decorator is that I don’t have to frequent just one place of worship 😉 I like to interior graze; picking the best bits from all the stores and blending them together for a room that rocks. And you can do the same for your bathroom when you hit your local Kmart store.

Kmart is fabulous for cheap-as-chips storage too. They blend white and bamboo together for a crisp and clean look. But they also have lots of black options as well. Combining all three colours takes the look in a more modern, Scandi-industrial moment. And I’m loving every minute of it.

Kmart also has loads of storage solutions for cosmetics as well, which is great if you love a lip of makeup.

Target is a Bathroom Accessories Haven!

Just when you thought it was safe to shop at one of the other retailers for bathroom accessories, along comes Target. Their latest drops in the bathroom department have been mind-blowing. I love their use of pink and black, plus the amber jars which are all sorts of astounding.

A small bathroom doesn’t have to be one void of style and decorative moments, so don’t be afraid to select a few accessories that feel blingy and special, and showcase them on your vanity or shelves.

Target also has some really cute mirrors and shower curtains that can make your bathroom a bit of a design moment! And their towels are pretty lovely as well.

Don’t Forget Howards Storage

In a small bathroom, it’s all about getting things off the floor and onto the walls. You’ve gotta capitalise on every bit of vertical space you have. With this in mind, things like shower caddies, suction shelves and wall hooks are what you need to be on the lookout for.

Thankfully, the pro’s at Howards Storage are king in this department. They have pretty much every hanging option your mind could dream up. And that’s why I adore them.

A lot of the finishes here are stainless steel, warm metallics of matte black. All of the colours bode so well for use in just about every bathroom, and my advice would be to select one finish and carry it out across all of your pieces. That way the entire scheme feels cohesive.

Lastly, you Gotta Explore Lorraine Lea

We’ve covered off all the small bathroom storage ideas you need. Now, time to decorate! And when it comes to decorating, it’s no secret that my one true love is Lorraine Lea.

They do phenomenal bedding and soft furnishings for your living room and bedroom. But what they also do exceptionally well is bathroom towels and other textural moments you’ll love.

Their range of Cooper Towelling is so divine for two reasons. One, it’s as soft and plush as ever but still retains water like never before. And two, the kaleidoscope of colours available means you can select a tone that perfectly compliments your bathroom design. They also do floor mats too, which means warmth underfoot throughout Autumn and Winter.

A luxe-as-ever NOOK collection from Lorraine Lea has recently dropped too, and features the sublime Manisa towel. The towels is so beautiful and features a stylish jacquard border with a decorative pattern. You’ll love it.
