Over Toilet Shelving Creates Bathroom Space

in Small Space Ideas on by

Is the bathroom in your apartment too small? Is your newspaper/magazine in the living room when you go into the bathroom to take care of business? Is your towel always on the floor? It’s time to pick it up and get a towel rack that goes above your toilet. This storage unit is easy to install, reasonably priced, and has many uses.

Easy to install

With other storage units, like cabinets and shelves, bolts or big nails might be needed to securely attach the unit to your apartment wall. However, this Nickel Bronze Bathroom Space Saver from Shop.com can be easily placed into your apartment. It does not need any bolts or big nails to keep it in place and slides over your toilet. Unlike larger, higher priced shelving systems, the Bathroom Space Saver is also economical.

Reasonably priced

Found at furniture on the web and reduced from its regular price of $222.99, you can purchase this item for less than $120. The idea of stacking vertically to increase space is easily imitated and similar shelving units can be found anywhere from Target to specialty stores like Bed Bath and Beyond. Not just for towels, these over the toilet shelving units can serve many purposes.

Many uses

As seen in the picture, the most obvious use is for towels; providing easy access from your shower. This can also be a holder for magazines, newspapers, or your latest novel. Of course, that is not its only use. If you happen to have full storage boxes, the top shelf gives you an extra place to store additional belongings. With an endless number of possibilities for uses, the Bathroom Space Saver could be your key to a roomier bathroom.

    Are you kidding me? $120 for a towel holder? Buy a couple of sticky hooks that will do the job, and just stack a couple of magazines (or fold a couple of towels neatly) over the toilet.

    Chances are, if you can afford this shelving unit you A)Have enough space in your bathroom to store things elsewhere B) Already own a real, nicer unit.

    If I could afford stuff like this for my studio apartment, I’d probably spend the money on a one-bedroom instead, thus eliminating the need for this frou-frou thing altogether.

    If you have a tiny apartment and not much money, there’s plenty of used or free stuff around. Goodwill or any large thrift store have furniture, and trolling the dumpsters in student neighborhoods around the 1st of each month from May to Sept/Oct can yield all sorts of great finds. A good cleaning and a coat of paint can make anything look new. You might also want to try hotel furniture liquidators, garage sales, and websites like Craigslist.

    A Shelf Box holds a foot locker or a couple
    of bankers’ boxes. Can be stacked 6-7
    high. No assembly. Small person can handle
    an empty shelf box. Content re-inserted
    when in the truck for moving. Optional
    panel can conceal content or secure for moving.
    Open in front. Closed on bottoom, top, ends,
    and back. Stuff doesn’t fall out. Make it
    of wood and it will be handsome to put in
    the apartment that is short on storage space.

    Yeah, but try to find the item at Walmart.com using their search function… It’s impossible. KMart’s ‘collection’ will set you back at least $50.00+ for something ugly and cheap, and there’s no Target in our area… But having once seen a metal trashcan with an $80 price tag, It’s a sure bet that they do not have one for $20….

    I live in an apt, I need storage (my bathroom is tiny and there’s a sink and a toilet) and my walls are just tile, so I can’t install shelving… there are definitely cheaper examples of this, but the point is “over toilet shelving creates bathroom space” not “over toilet shelving that costs over $100…”

    I have one of these units, and yes it set me back a couple of bucks, but it’s only because of this unit that my bathroom isn’t a total dive. Mine has two medicine cabinets and a shelf in between, and even though I have a vanity it keeps all my products out of sight and off the counter.

    I don’t know where the rest of you live- but 100$ for a very useful unit vs. a couple extra hundred EVERY MONTH for a bigger apartment? please- easy choice for me!

    we have one of these with baskets on each shelf. it looks a lot cleaner and gives you tones of space for all cosmetics, bottles, hairdryer etc…
    one at the top as rolled towels coming out. looks great and saves space!
