A small bathroom can present many challenges, especially when it comes to personal grooming time (and you have little to not counter space).

If this describes your living space, it’s time to employ some creativity and ingenuity.

Start by getting rid of unused bathroom supplies and determining what storage you do have available. This means familiarizing yourself with your bathroom space and looking for wasted corners, nooks, and spaces that you might have overlooked.

Try giving one of these suggestions and tips a whirl. 

1. Find a spot for a narrow rolling cart

Whether you prefer closed or open bathroom storage, several options are available online. We have selected two of the best.
