An organized and efficient bathroom is a beautiful thing, and choosing the right bathroom accessories can go a long way towards achieving this. The trick with adding anything new is that in the average bathroom there is often very little space to work with. Here are a few ingenious bathroom ideas that don’t take up a lot of space, but will add plenty of fun, efficiency and organization.
I always do my best brainstorming in the shower. As a mother to a toddler the shower is often one of the few places where I get to be alone with my thoughts, and I don’t know how many times this product could have been helpful. Aqua Notes are a waterproof note pad that let you jot down your ideas while you’re still showering. Brilliant! This could also be a fun way to leave messages or reminders for other family members.
Eco and green toys are everywhere these days and this make-your-own-sailboat kit is one of the best I’ve seen. It’s called the Flessenboot and it’s made by designer Floris Hovers. Using an empty shampoo or conditioner bottle as a base you can make your very own tub-worthy sailboat.
Sink Toilet Combo
If space is really in short supply in your bathroom you may want to consider the sink-toilet combo pictured above. Not only does it take up a minimal amount of floor space, it also conserves water because the water from the sink drains into the toilet tank. This could be a fantastic option if you’re thinking of putting in a second bathroom but don’t want to take up too much square footage.
Robot Toilet Paper Dispenser
General Robots created this adorable toilet paper dispenser that would make a great addition to a kids’ bathroom, but could also add a whimsical touch to the master bathroom as well. Well designed and fun to look at, it’s definitely a clever little accessory.
Nathalie Stampflii designed and created Soap Flakes as her graduate project for the Design Academy Eindhoven. The Soap Flakes dispenser makes pretty little flakes for washing up that eliminates the need to use liquid soap, which has a greater environmental impact than regular bar soap. So far the dispenser is just a prototype, but I would snap one of these up in a second if it was for sale.
Mason Jar Bathroom DIY
Finally, here’s a brilliant DIY that looks easy enough to whip up in a weekend afternoon. All you need is a board, some mason jars (vintage or antique ones would be nice), pipe clamps and a couple of picture hangers. For full details head on over to lovely little details. This storage idea could work wonderfully in an office too.
