There are more than a few apartment landlords who really seem to think that two square feet are more than ample when it comes to bathroom space. You’ve probably seen plenty of apartments with bathrooms where you can’t really even be sure how they shoehorned a shower into the room.
But just because the room is small doesn’t mean that you can’t get everything in there that you need for your daily routine. There are thousands of products designed just to save space in a tiny bathroom. And while there are a variety of options for shower caddies and towel racks, there are a few items that stand out in particular:
- The KangaRoom Bottle Organizer — If you have a shower curtain, you can hang KangaRoom pouches. While the makers recommend them for the bottles that seem to build up around a bathtub, you can use them to stash just about anything.
- The Weight Watchers Portable Precision Electronic Scale — Many people like having a scale handy in the bathroom. But if you’re lacking in floor space, you can’t just leave a scale out (unless you’re willing to trip over it on a regular basis). This portable scale can be tipped on its side and put away, unlike most scales, which need recalibrating if you change their orientation.
- Amerock Pullout Organizer — While Amerock originally designed their pullout organizers for kitchens, they fit perfectly in bathroom cabinets as well. Rather than having to get down on your hands and knees to search through your cabinet every time you want something in the back, Amerock lets you pull out everything in the cabinet in one go, without having to worry about getting it all back in.
- Trap Door Bath Toy Bin — Has your rubber ducky collection been getting out of hand? The Trap Door Bath Toy Bin makes for easy storage and, when you run your next bath, you just need to release the trap door and your toys will be set free. Picking up is just a matter of tossing the toys back in.
Many kitchen organizers will work in the bathroom and can be cheaper. It’s just a matter of determining what will actually work in the space you’ve got. The only difference between organizing any other room in your apartment and your bathroom is making sure that your organizers won’t be adversely affected by the damper climate — especially if you’re fond of steamy showers.
