Shelves above the toilet…There are so many areas in our home that we never think of using. Most of it is vertical space and can be an advantage to the continuing battle against clutter without sacrificing living space.
In this example we see that the vertical space above the toilet is the perfect spot to house extra towels and rolls of toilet paper. Genius idea, especially in a small water closet like this where space is very limited. I’m sure if you think about your own home you will come up with at least three places that you can use this trick in.
Using shelves above the toilet is also very convenient. You can see exactly what is available and it is easy to reach when you need it.
Of course you need a wastebasket and that does better on the floor. Use one that fits the space and doesn’t overtake the corner that you place it in.
Want a little decor? The slim vase with the bamboo vine is the right choice. Again, don’t overwhelm the space with over-sized items. Think slim and sleek and you should do fine with any choice you make.
Sometimes less is more and this is a great example of that.
