Guest post- Great bathroom storage ideas!


This article is brought to you by Edel Flood.

Bathrooms serve many purposes for households. They are a practical room where you get ready for a busy day at work or get glammed up for a night out, as well as a sanctuary from the stresses and strains of everyday life. However, regardless of whether you are using it for your morning wash or to have a relaxing soak in the bathtub, it should be uncluttered and tidy.

Yet the bathroom is often the smallest room in the house, so making sure it is neat and organised, while still being able to have all the bits and pieces you need immediately on hand, can be quite a challenge. As a result, it pays to be creative when it comes to bathroom storage. A bathroom might offer more space than you realize - it is just a question of ensuring you make the best use of it.

Bring order to a chaotic bath

The bath itself is one area where clutter can quickly build up. Bottles of bubble bath, shampoo, conditioner and much more besides always seem to accrue at every corner, which makes it untidy and hard to clean. So, ask yourself, are you making use of the wall space at either end of the bath?

This could be the perfect place to hang some shelves, so all your potions and lotions have a storage space that is still within reach and helps stop your bath looking cluttered. Untidy surroundings are not really conducive to relaxing, so this could go a long way towards both improving the appearance of your bathroom and enhancing the all-round bath-time experience.

Do not neglect the cabinet

Other parts of the wall might also offer perfect opportunities to improve your bathroom's storage capacity. Since you are guaranteed to hang up a mirror, why not kill two birds with one stone by purchasing one that serves as a cupboard as well? It could be the ideal place to store those items you will probably be using while stood in front of the mirror, such as a hairbrush, make-up or razor. Check out Splash Direct's range of bathroom cabinets for ideas.

Store items vertically

Not all of your toiletries and bathroom items need to be hidden out of the way in cabinets. A bathroom has just as much height as any other part of the house, so there is no reason why you can't store items such as towels and toiletries vertically. This is a clean and tidy way of storing your wares that keeps the use of floor space at a minimum, thereby helping you ensure the bathroom stays tidy and uncluttered.
Similarly, you can use peg rails, hooks, ladders and racks to hang up towels and other items, so you do not have to use the limited space available on countertops.

Use a multi-purpose radiator

A bathroom needs a radiator, but this too could do more than one job. A heated towel rail will do the job nicely, yet provide the perfect place to hang up lots of wet towels so they can dry off quickly - and tidily! Again, it's just about making the best use of the space you have available.

The bathroom is used every day and is often one of the busiest rooms in the house, so it is worth taking the time to get storage right.

A product review- See Jane Work!


You might not know this but I am a huge fan of fun and stylish desk accessories! Imagine my excitement when See Jane Work contacted me and asked if I would be interested to received some samples from their online store. Of course I said YES!


Not familiar with See Jane Work? You see, See Jane Work is a website offering a wide range of stylish office supplies and office organization products to working women so they can stay organized.

Needless to say, I was wowed by all their fabulous products and swooned over many of the items I saw on their wonderful website. In the end, I picked a few desk accessories for my son's desk since I am working on his work station/bedroom now. 

Below are the three items I picked for this product review.







This is how I styled my son's desk using See Jane Work's products.

I love the tape dispenser, pencil cup and document box that I received from See Jane Work! All items are exactly what I expected; stylish and well-made. They were packaged well and arrived in just a few days in perfect condition. I couldn't be more pleased with their beautiful products! I am looking forward to get some chic office supplies from them when I get my very own home office in the future! 

*I received this product to review for free but the views and opinions expressed are entirely my own.

While checking out See Jane Work's website, I found these great desk styling and organization ideas that I would love to share with you. If you see a product that you like, simply click on the link below the picture for details.
