Slimline Bathroom Storage: How to Make it Work in Your Space

One of the greatest challenges we hear about bathrooms is that they’re simply too small to do anything nice with.

 

As much as we’d all love to have enormous bathrooms, the reality is that when it comes to room size, bathrooms are often far down on the list of priorities. To make things even more difficult, bathrooms are usually the room which accumulates the most ‘stuff’. From fancy potions and lotions to overpriced shampoos; bathrooms need adequate storage – a feat which can seem impossible when space is limited.

Using Slimline Bathroom Storage to Improve Your Space

Decking out your bathroom with slimline bathroom storage is a great way to make the most of your space and create a home for all of your toiletries, without cluttering up the room with bulky furniture. The right slimline pieces will not only work as a safe haven for all your bits and bobs, they will also look fashionable and elegant, without protruding too much into your limited bathroom space.

Whilst slimline storage is a great way to make the most of your furniture space, we’ve got an array of other nifty tips to help free up valuable room. Whether your bathroom area is severely limited or you’re just interested in some ultra-slim pieces to make it feel a little bigger, here’s how to make your bathroom shine - no matter what you’ve got to work with. 

Slimline Bathroom Storage

These days there’s an array of bathroom furniture specifically designed to save you space. From slimline mirrored cabinets to combined basin and toilets units; having a limited amount of space is no longer an excuse for a shabby bathroom!

This Drench Emily Wall Mounted Vanity Unit and Countertop is the perfect addition to a slightly smaller bathroom. Whilst not technically in our slimline bathroom furniture category, the 395mm depth makes it perfect for those who have limited space to work with, but aren’t completely crammed in. Investing in a wall-mounted unit frees up space on the floor below, creating the illusion of space whilst the beautifully modern look helps forge a minimalist, uncluttered feel.

Choose from a variety of stunning countertop basins and taps - we love to pair the unit with this Crosswater MPRO Matt Black Wall Mounted Mixer Tap for a bold look. The Emily vanity starts from £149.99, bringing you the luxury of soft close doors, a spacious amount of bathroom storage and a comprehensive 5 year guarantee packed into one neat little unit. It’s a winner for us every time.

Cloakroom Bathroom Furniture

Whilst small bathrooms can be difficult to style, cloakroom toilets can seem practically impossible! Our top tip is to keep your cloakroom as minimalist as possible. Slimline storage can look lovely in even the smallest of rooms, you just need to find the right pieces!

This Harbour Compact Cashmere Oak Vanity Unit and Basin is one of our favourite cloakroom storage pieces. It’s both compact and fashionable, taking up less space than most pedestals and basins, whilst providing a good amount of storage for all your cloakroom essentials. The basin is made from durable Polymarble, and the vanity unit comes in a stunning cashmere oak or gloss white finish. The lifetime guarantee is the icing on the cake.

If you’re on slightly more of a budget, the Drench Maisie Cloakroom Vanity Unit and Basin is simple and stylish, providing a solid amount of storage for just £79.95. It’s compact and slimline, slotting neatly into even the smallest of cloakrooms.

Combined Basin and Toilet Furniture

Combined basin and toilets units aren’t exactly the most famous bathroom feature around given their ‘all-in-one’ status which some consider a bit cheap and cheerful. What many sceptics don’t understand however, is that they are a fantastic space saver - and can look great if you style them right.

When it comes to combined toilet and basin furniture, you can’t get much better than this Vellamo Compact Toilet and Basin Set. It’s both stylish and practical, neatly slotting into virtually any space. It’s made from Polymarble resin, which makes it easy to clean and durable, whilst the pack also includes a dual flush concealed cistern. The toilet itself has a soft-close seat and the unit comes with a 10-year guarantee. £399.99 for both a toilet and basin - you’ve got yourself a bargain.

The Emily Combination Toilet & Basin Unit starts from just £319.99, with options to add a back-to-wall toilet and concealed cistern if required.

 

Tall Storage Units

Corner Vanity Units

Corner vanity units are another nifty bathroom space saver, providing the perfect amount of storage for small bathrooms. And we’ve certainly got a couple of options that might take your fancy.

This Vellamo Alpine White 2 Door Corner Cabinet Unit and Ceramic Basin is our budget option, priced at just £119.99. When it comes to small bathroom storage, this unit ticks all the boxes.

It’s traditionally designed, helping you to create that perfect vintage look, and the basin is crafted from a beautifully crisp Polymarble.

Slimline Mirrored Cabinets

Mirrored cabinets should be a must-have in any bathroom, and their slimline counterparts ensure you don’t have to miss out just because you’re lacking wall space. Slimline mirrored cabinets give you the best of both worlds; the stunning look of a mirrored cabinet without having to sacrifice much bathroom space – plus our options still provide a great amount of bathroom storage.

This Harbour Glow LED Mirrored Cabinet gets a firm stamp of approval from us. It’s modern, featuring both a demister pad and shaver socket, whilst the LED lights around the outside are both mood-boosting and energy efficient. The soft close doors prevent damage and are mirrored on both sides to make your bathroom feel even more spacious. The two adjustable glass shelves provide plenty of storage space for all your toiletries too.

There’s nothing worse than a misty mirror after a hot bath or shower, which is why we’re big fans of the heated demister pad. This ensures you can use the mirror straight away after showering, saving you both time and frustration during that early morning rush! Better still, the contemporary LED lights are activated by an infra-red sensor which makes you feel like you’ve accidentally stepped on to the set of a Star Wars film. Effortlessly stylish if you ask us.

 

Hanging Shower Storage

Our final space-saving tip is to invest in some hanging shower shelves. Whilst a cluttered shower is a big no-no, hanging shower storage can provide a home for your shampoos and soaps without ruining the aesthetic. We’ve got a range of modern shower baskets to store all your goodies and help make your shower that little less frantic. If you’ve got a big family (or perhaps just a lot of stuff!), this Sagittarius Curve Shower Cubicle Shelf Tidy is all you need, eliminating clutter and putting all your toiletries within arm’s reach – all for just £32.99.

If you’re not a big fan of hanging shower storage however, this Vado Wall Mounted Removable Corner Basket is the perfect alternative. You can still store your products in the shower – plus, it’s removable so it’s much easier to clean and can even be put in the dishwasher!

Small bathrooms are becoming easier and easier to style thanks to the array of furniture specifically designed to save space. Slimline bathroom storage is an essential when it comes to smaller bathrooms or cloakroom toilets. It helps keeps the room tidy (which will make it feel even bigger), without forcing you to sacrifice valuable floor and wall space. However you decide to style your bathroom, you can be sure that Tap Warehouse has something that will slot in neatly and look fabulous, no matter how much space you have available.
