8. Be clever with spaceTake a look around your room to see if you can find some extra space for towel storage. An unused wall surface could be just big enough to fit a column of shelves.Here, the designers have made use of a stud wall at the foot of the bath to create a recessed alcove that contains plenty of storage.TELL USDo you have any different ideas for storing towels?

7. Work in some textureIn this glossy bathroom, the designers could have used standard white or glass shelves. Instead, they’ve gone for something more interesting.Reclaimed wood has been cut to fit and inserted into a neat alcove next to the bath. The rough timber adds some rich, natural texture to the room.
3. A lack of storage equals tonnes of clutterWho doesn’t want a serene, tidy bathroom with everything in its place? But finding enough storage for the countless plastic bottles and toiletries can be a relentless task in a compact space. Solution: Become a shrewd space invader and steal some valuable territory from unused areas of the room. If you only use the bath for washing the kiddies and taking a shower, but never for a long lay-back-and-relax soak, consider fitting a mini tub so you can free up space for a cupboard or shelves. Or maybe have a recess shelf built inside the shower area, so you can store shampoos off the floor and out of sight. Ensure every centimetre is utilised for its storage potential, and your small space will feel calm and tranquil.The joy of a clutter-free bathroom
Perfectly rolled towelsYour choice of towels and how you display them will have a big impact on the look and feel of your bathroom. Ratty, faded towels obviously won’t have the same luxurious presence as sumptuous fluffy white ones. Similarly, towels hastily hung on hooks or scrunched over heated rails won’t look as chic as neatly folded or rolled ones. It’s simply a matter of adopting a new habit.
