Lightbulb Bathroom storage idea

My husband and I just finished remodeling our ? bath. We installed a pedestal sink where we use to have a vanity. This gives the illusion that the room is larger, but this created another problem. We no longer have any storage space. I was searching the web and came across a product called Hy-dit. It?s a little cabinet that recesses into the wall; it holds the toilet plunger and the toilet brush. There is also room for an extra roll of toilet paper. It was easy to install and we painted it to match, you hardly notice it. If anyone has other home storage ideas, I would love to hear.

How about a shelf on the wall with small baskets or decorative jars to hold extra toiletries etc.? An over the door towel rack? We hung an unfinished kitchen cabinet over the toilet and painted it and it provides lots of storage space. I suppose you have a medicine cabinet/mirror over the pedestal, right? Even a round basket with a lid under the pedestal can be used for storing items. Any of this help?

We have a towel rack behind the door, that fits over the hinges. Then the bars for the towel swing with or independently of the door. I think they have a storage thingy too. Lemme see if I can find a URL....

pops out of a hamper with a lid Hampers can store stuff besides clothes .. ya can get the ones that are small and expand as you use them. For the shower a shower caddy thing that goes over the shower head is wonderful, it will hold 2 BIG bottles of shampoo and conditioner and 2 small bottles of shampoo and conditioner.

The storage in the wall thing actually doesn't require a kit if you have handy-woman skills (or a good book). All you need to do is find where the studs are in the wall, remove the dry wall, put in shelves, finish the edges of the dry wall. My neighbor did the same thing, only she made the door slide up (or was it down) within the wall. And her handy-woman skills are minimal. My sister in law did the same thing in their tiny house only she made 2 clothes closets in the walls going up the spiral staircase.

Discount stores sell the very sturdy chrome hotel shelves. We used them in the master bath with baskets to create extra space. We are going to redo the bathroom , but will need the vanity because that is where we keep all the kitty potty stuff. (And the huge supply of toilet paper I always need *grin*)

My parents have one of those behind the door, hinged towel racks and love it. They don't work in our house since we have folding doors. My bathroom is 3 little rooms: two with a john and a sink and 1 with just the bathtub.
I wanted to be a pirate, but I couldn't grow a beard and rum makes me giggle.
