Small containers are truly one of the best versatile storage tools out there!

6. Hang A Towel Rack On The Bathroom Cabinet

Radiators, I don’t need to say much more if you have them. They can be a wonderful addition to your bathrooms or some dead space you don’t know what to do with.

    Hanging your towels on a towel bar is a good idea, but not next to the toilet. How many times is the toilet flushed without putting the toilet lid down?

      We worked with what we had. Ideally, you’d want the towel rack attached to the side of the cupboard where there is no toilet. Unfortunately, we had the shower on the other end, no way to take a picture of that! I hope you get the idea. Nice catch! 🙂
