    1. Keep your hair tools from getting all tangled up by storing them in a heat-resistant styling station. You can hang this one on a towel rack for easy access or store it in a cabinet if you'd rather they be out of sight out of mind when not in use.

    2. Store your extra towels and bath products on a slim and stylish rolling cart that can fit almost anywhere.

    15. Free up some desperately needed surface space by storing items in a stylish wall hanging rack with three baskets to hold your essentials.

    16. Attach a sneaky cabinet behind the door if the storage options in your tiny bathroom are next to none. It's slim so it doesn't get in the way of the door, but also tall so it can still hold a lot!

    17. Add more storage options with a three-tier bamboo rack that can be wall-mounted if you are fresh out of floor space or left free-standing if you have just enough room to fit its slim profile.

    18. Stash up to 12 rolls of precious TP in a conveniently-sized stocker so you can store more at once without taking up a bunch of space. Plus, you can also use it as a safe spot to set down your phone and keep some Poo-Pourri always within reach.

    19. Suction a caddy to the wall to hold everything that won't fit around the edge of your teeny tiny sink.

    24. Instead of taking up floor space with a shelf to hold your ~going #2~ reading materials, try a fashionable hanging file holder to keep your magazines, books, newspapers nice and accessible, yet out of the way.
