House Tour: Bathroom

This post should really be titled “How Ikea Saved My Bathroom.” This tiny bathroom offers very few storage options, and I’m a girl that loves 1) organization and 2) bath products, so I needed to come up with some solutions. It’s not ideal, but it works! This post could also be titled, “In Which Molly Showcases Her Toilet.” I feel a little weird about the first pic being all BAM, toilet, but it is a bathroom. Not a whole lot of angles to choose from in this room. So, I must ask you to please…

Ikea Storage Solutions in a Small Bathroom | Awfully Big Adventure

Now you can see the tiny space I’m working with. The shower curtain from Garnet Hill ads a lot of visual interest, and the green and blue baskets from Pier 1 help hide away medicine, manicure supplies, contacts, and other miscellaneous items. The basket on the floor is from Ikea and it holds my hair-taming items (hair dryer, brushes, straightener, curling wand, etc.) The hanging shelf and bucket above the toilet are also from Ikea, and they hold my every day items that I need to have easy access to- moisturizer, contact solution, toothpaste, etc.

These hanging baskets above the towels are from- you guessed it- Ikea! They hold even more random bath stuff that couldn’t be stuffed away in any of the previously mentioned storage solutions. My velcro curlers, for example. We are in Texas, after all. (The higher the hair, the closer to God.)

The picture ledge with glass containers under the mirror is from- I kid you not, Ikea. Of all places. You can find this is in the kitchen section- the small glass containers are marketed as spice containers, but they work just as well for my bobby pins, hair clippies, q-tips, and twisties. (Do you call them twisties? hair ties? rubber bands? I’m kind of fascinated by this. They will forever be “twisties” to me.) The framed concert print was given to me by my brother. It adds just the right touch of gangster to my feminine bathroom, and it incorporates one of my favorite movies ever. (The Godfather.)

Here’s a closer look at the picture ledge, which brings us to the close of this tiny tour of this tiny room. Please let me know in the comments if you’d like any source info, and please share your tiny spaces and how you added interest/organization!

    Love the colors and storage/solutions are creative, textural and well thought out! If you ever move into a bigger space all those storage items could be re-used in a different way.
    A place for everything and everything in its place! Bravo Molly

    • Thank you so much Janet!! Fingers crossed that SOMEDAY I’ll move into a bigger space, but for now it’s fun to figure out how to organize/decorate in a smaller space.
