Sure, a plain old shelf above the toilet is a great start, but we’re loving these ultra-stylish, yet still oh-so-handy, bathroom shelf ideas. Time to get organized.

1. Utilize vertical space
For even the tiniest bathrooms, hang high shelving for a smart storage solution. Since it may be out of everyday reach, we love how this design uses the extra wall space to display décor (how cool is the antique train sign?), plants, and extra toiletries. Even a few rolled up towels add to the spa-atmosphere.
Meanwhile, Little Savage Life’s Vikki puts more accessible items on floating shelves around eye level, and hanging from hooks attached to the wall and overhead shelving. Of course, there’s some extra greenery for good measure. When in doubt, Command Wall Hooks are a great way to add storage without commitment. A renter’s dream.
2. Add rustic style with your bathroom shelving ideas
A reclaimed wood floating shelf is the perfect complement to your farmhouse bathroom’s shiplap wall. They can also help create a rustic mood on a plain white wall or anyplace else!
If you’re feeling handy, you can DIY floating shelves for about $20. All you need are stock boards found at your home improvement store, a drill, screws, and wood glue. You will need to cut your pieces of board to length, so if you don’t have a saw at home, be sure to ask an associate at your hardware store to do it for you.
