1. Floating shelves

When we think of utilising a space in the toilet, the first thing that strikes our mind is to have storage space. Yes, it can be given first priority as we have a lot of things to be kept in our toilets.

For this arranging the ledges one above the other vertically helps in creating a storage space which can be used effectively for keeping shampoo bottles, toilet paper,

Towels etc…

2. Free standing shelves

If you are bored at regular shelving and if you don’t feel like doing something on your wall, i am sure then this is an alternate way for storage then.Yes, lean a ladder against the wall behind your toilet to add some storage space for towels, hanging baskets and other toiletries.

It gives a nice look to the bathroom and it becomes user friendly if you want to clean your flush tank, just push it aside, clean it and put it back.

3. Recessed Shelves

This looks like a good idea for storage but it needs little plumbing changes.Idea of niche over the toilet wall helps great in storage option but you need to change the toilet plumbing and move it to the side as we are introducing space for storage.  

This space can be used to store toilet papers and even some decor items also.

Do you love to read books and magazines? Then I am sure this idea is for you. Many of us have the habit of reading magazines and books during our morning and evening routine and yeah in this scenario everyone is very keen in using their time for gaining knowledge and no one likes to waste their time.

Metal racks and hangers can be used for this type of storage.It also helps in storing toilet papers and towels.
