The primary bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the house. I did a roundup of 10 over the toilet bathroom storage ideas.
This may be my most glamorous post yet; it even says toilet in the title! The primary bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the house. It’s where I start and end my day.
Currently I have all the extra towels in the guest bath and hall closet in the front of the house. One of my first tasks in this new home is to make sure we are organized and everything has a place in the appropriate room. I love that the primary bath has double sinks so there is plenty of under the counter storage space, but no shelves currently for towels – we needed a way to store them over the toilet!
There’s a long blank wall to the right when you first walk in and over the toilet is completely open. I want to utilize that open space! I gathered 10 ideas for bathroom storage over the toilet:

I just love the floating wood shelves! It gives such wonderful texture and classic lines. Also the wire rack is fun, especially for hanging towels when they are wet. I can’t wait to see what you choose!

I just recently re-decorated our guest bath and found this amazing little rustic cabinet from world market that I put over the toilet. I love it, really completes the room and gives it a more custom look. http://www.worldmarket.com/product/colton-metal–wood-wall-unit.do?&from=fn

I have a window above my toilet. I love having that window but it does leave me with less room for organization space in a bathroom that is in desperate need of storage…

I love the wine rack idea. I have one and just need to put it up after I repaint. I have a much dmaller bathroom with a shower and a window. I’m still looking for ideas so it doesn’t feel crowded.
