How To Find The Perfect Bathroom Storage Unit

Posted on Tuesday 6th August 2019 by Des Roberts

The less space you have, the more important it should be to have the right bathroom storage unit. For most of us, the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms in our home. However, it still has to hold a wide variety of different items, accessories and toiletries for every family member who uses it. So that’s quite a tall order!

So, finding a bathroom storage unit fit for your needs should make life a lot easier. In fact, there are plenty of different options to choose from. Storage units come in all shapes and sizes, so first of all take note of your room dimensions. Then you need to consider how to make every element, including the floor, furniture and walls, work harder for you.


Don’t let the space under your basin go to waste! Vanity units (either freestanding or wall-hung) are a brilliant way to maximise your storage options. Our Roper Rhodes Diverge Charcoal Elm 600mm Freestanding Unit & Basin is an excellent option for a contemporary bathroom. It features soft closing doors plus a spacious internal drawer, in addition to a ceramic basin with a generous wash area.

For smaller bathrooms, cloakrooms, or even an en-suite, the Crosswater Bauhaus Svelte White Gloss 60 Vanity Unit & Basin is a clever, compact option. This two-drawer vanity unit serves plenty of storage space. Even the sleek, curved, handleless design is sure to create an eye-catching, yet practical, focal point for your bathroom.


If your floor space is at a premium, think long, tall and slim. Tower bathroom storage units are perfect for slotting into narrow spaces. If you choose one with a mix of fixed and adjustable shelves, they’re surprisingly versatile. As a result, we’re big fans of the two-door Crosswater Bauhaus Glide II Driftwood Wall Hung Tower Unit. It features handy, adjustable shelves with left or right door handing. But we love the lower door, which conceals a pull-down laundry basket, for maximum storage multi-tasking.

Or why not use your storage to add a splash of colour to your bathroom? Our Aqua Cabinets Anthracite D300 Tall Unit comes in a gorgeous shade of grey with a contemporary gloss finish. And this bathroom storage unit doesn’t just look good. Its four internal glass shelves offer plenty of useful storage space.


When you’re looking at ways to optimise your storage, don’t forget your walls. Wall-hung bathroom storage cabinets with mirrors and/or lights are a great space-saving solution. Best of all, they are available in a variety of styles and sizes. So you can choose from  corner, tall and double. Then you’re sure to find something that suits both your space and your storage needs.

The Old London Storm Grey 600mm Mirror Cabinet is perfect for fans of the classic look. It features twin doors with chrome handles, and is perfect for storing all your bathroom toiletries.

For a more contemporary option, take a look at our Tavistock Nook Double Door Cabinet with integrated LED lighting – the perfect storage solution for the modern bathroom. This sleek aluminium double-door cabinet contains three adjustable glass shelves, plus an internal power socket for electric shavers and toothbrushes.

Other useful bathroom storage ideas include the clever use of shelves, towel rails and shower tidies. We especially love the wall-mounted Vado Spa 600mm Towel Shelf with Towel Rail – the perfect stylish and practical storage solution!
