Get creative in the bathroom

Small bathrooms are often a cause for concern in their own right when it comes to figuring out storage options, as you need somewhere to store those all-important creams and lotions before you can even think about anything else. That’s when you need to get creative! Make the most of the door and purchase hanging storage options that can be hidden out of sight when the room isn’t in use. Getting towels and even dressing gowns in here can clear up much needed storage space in your wardrobe for the rest of your clothing.
