The lack of space is an issue and with that, keeping the RV bathroom organized and clutter-free is definitely a challenge. And for those of you who are faced with this enormous challenge, how about the following RV bathroom organization hacks? Let’s take a look.
How do you use the shower space for storage? Let’s see…
Shower caddies can be put to use in multiple ways. While some can be hung on a wall some are easily hung on the external part of a shower. Now, the varieties –
Hanging Shower Caddy Organizer
A hanging portable shower caddy is a must when it comes to RV bathrooms. It becomes the storehouse of your washcloths, body washes, soaps and toiletries making your RV toilet clutter-free. Moreover, you can move it around thus making it more useful. You can hang it on a glass shower wall or over the door of a cabinet.
Adhesive Shower Caddies
These types of caddies can be placed in any and every place you need them starting from cabinet doors to walls and are most useful in RV bathrooms.
How about a shower curtain that has pockets built in it to store things?
Corner Shower Shelf – Such corner shelves can be used in corners of a shower as well as in other corners. These will increase the storage space.
Tension Rod – If you can fix a tension rod across the top of your shower or around the tub area, you can hang storage baskets without doing any harm to the walls.
You would definitely wish to do away with the bottles of shampoo, body wash or conditioners and the best way to do that is to fix a dispenser in your RV bathroom. That way you can throw away those bottles after filling up the dispenser with the contents. Such dispensers are easy to come across and are at your service with just the push of a button. Just find one that is easy to install and compatible with the wall surface of your RV bathroom.
On The Wall
Utilize the space on the wall of your RV bathroom to maximize space. You may hang these items with screws or adhesives, but find out if these will stand the test of time.
Why don’t you get a wall mounting toothbrush holder? These holders usually come with covers so that the head of the brush remains germ-free. So not only do you clear up countertop space with a holder, you add to the hygienic aspect too. But, then again, try to find an easy to install kind.
Wall baskets are very useful as additional storage and you can always do with some in your RV bathroom. You can use mason jars for the same purpose in place of wall baskets.
Wall Mount Holders
You can find wall mount holders that are self-adhesive and get gummed to the walls of your RV bathroom. And these holders are great for storing small things like toothpaste, makeup and the like and the best part is, these objects stay protected from both dust and water. These come in different shapes and colors and you can choose ones to fit your décor.
Adhesive Towel Bar
An adhesive towel bar comes useful in storing items that are lightweight and you are saved the trouble of drilling holes.
Adhesive Corner Shelf
An adhesive corner shelf will not only increase space but will provide the extra storage that you need so badly in an RV bathroom.
On The Door
Can the space above the door of your RV bathroom be utilized?
Over-the-Door Storage Organizer – Such organizers are just ideal for any RV bathroom.
Over-Door Towel Rack
Hanging wet towels is an issue and the best way to tackle it is by using an over-door towel rack. These racks are strong enough to hold robes, towels, shower caps and such things with ease clearing up floor space.
Over-Door Hair Styling Basket
How about having a basket above the door of your RV toilet to store your hair styling tools and accessories? This way you can also keep the cords organized and do away with the oft-seen clutter associated with cupboards in most RV bathrooms.
Over-the-Door Hanging Towel Rack
If you can fix up an over-the-door hanging towel rack on the outside of the bathroom cabinet in your RV toilet you will be able to eke out more space inside. You can either hang towels for everyday use or for storage.
On Cabinet Doors
The cabinet doors can be utilized for additional storage. Just find out if the caddie you are purchasing will match the dimensions of the cabinet door and leave enough space for the doors to swing open and shut.
You may put up baskets or racks on these doors with the help of screws or plastic liners or adhesive hooks. Towel bars meant for hand towels can also be hung on a cabinet door.
In the Cabinet
Placing items in the cabinets which can be shifted around and easily installed is what you definitely need for your RV bathroom.
You can place organizational baskets in a cabinet to save space. These can also be mounted on the back wall of a cabinet and thus utilize vertical space. The back of a cabinet mirror can be used to store small things like necklaces by hanging them from hooks. Also, adhesive magnetic strips come useful for hanging small metal objects like hair clips and bobby pins.
Around The Toilet
These are some more options that you can give a try.
Over the Toilet Baskets
The space above the toilet is usually wasted in all bathrooms and with RV ones, there is no difference. With the aid of a towel rack, you can hang a series of baskets on the wall and there is more storage space where you can place your extra towels, toilet paper and much more.
A trash basket is a must in any bathroom and RV ones are no exception. But such trash bins take up a lot of floor space. And an over-head wastebasket that fits into cabinets of your RV bathroom is the ideal solution. It will free up the floor space of your RV bathroom.
Increase Shelves to Your Bathroom Cabinets
If you need some more storage than is available with your cabinets, you can go for an organizer which will function as a cupboard in your RV bathroom and keep it more organized. You may also add drawers to the bottom of a cabinet to increase storage.
Pop-up Tissue Holders
In your small RV bathroom, even tissue boxes take up lots of space. Tissue boxes can be done away with pop-up tissue holders which can be mounted on cabinets or walls of your RV bathrooms.
Microfiber towels score on regular ones as the former dry up quickly and occupy less space. Don’t you think these are just what you need for your RV bathroom to make it more spacious?
Mini Toilet Brush
Mini Toilet Brushes are probably made keeping RV bathrooms in mind. So why not go for them? The soft bristles of such brushes don’t damage o-rings.
Unique Towel Holder
You may use a shoe organizer which will serve the purpose of a towel holder taking up minimum space.
Next to the Sink
There are some items that need to be stored around a sink. So how do you maximize this space?
For the same, you may add an extension to the countertop so that things do not fall off as more space is added. Also adding a soap dish to the wall will increase the countertop space. An under-the-sink shelf will help you use the space beneath the sink.
Hope you have enough ideas now to choose from to organize your RV bathroom for more storage space.
