Bathroom Accessories & Storage

This probably isn't going to totally impress you, but to me this is fabulous  Why in the world didn't I think of it before.

You've all seen my bathroom, love it, there's just one small problem.  There are absolutely no walls in this bathroom and no place to hang a bath towel.

 See, absolutely no walls.

 A tiny space above the tub, however if you want to take a shower, where is your towel?  On the other side of the room isn't very handy.  This would mean you had to drip water across the bathroom to get a towel to dry off with.  Not a good idea.

See that angeled door in the mirror.  That's the door to the toilet, and we have to hang our towels in there.  We both love to use bath sheets and that's the only space with enough room to hang them.

  When we start to shower, we take one out and then drape it over the ledge between the tub and shower.  Half the time it falls off and is on the floor.

See, this is the little toilet room.  A nice shelf that holds extra soap and toilet paper.

 This side of the wall has a lovely painting.

 This side holds our bath sheets once they are dry.  I don't like to hang a wet towel folded, I like for it to have plenty of space to air dry completely.  So it usually gets draped over the ledge again to dry.

 Today I found a small over the door hook and I think it is absolutely genius storage for the towels.

 I just hung one, but see, you can hang a really big bath sheet on it.   Once we step out of the shower, it is right there, totally within reach.  Then it can hang back up in the same place to dry.  Once dry I can fold it and put it back on the towel bar.

 See, it is just one step out of the shower.  Now why didn't I think of this before.

So do you ever find something simple and then wonder why in the world you didn't think of it earlier?

  1. Hi Marty,
    Our master bath is very similar and we also use the bath sheets. Funny, because we do almost the same thing as far as the towels. The only difference is that we have a tiny 2 foot wall across from the shower. So I hung 2 iron hooks there. Still not optimal... but its better than nothing. :)

    Your home is so pretty! :)

  2. That little addition seems like a great solution to your towel hanging problem, Marty!

  3. What a great solution Marty, our master has the same issue. hugs ~lynne ~

  4. What a great solution and it looks good too. Better late than never, right?

  5. That was such and easy fix! lol... its happens to all of us. Your bathroom is big, Im sooo jealous!

  6. Great solution, Marty. Your bathroom is lovely!
    xx, Sherry

  7. all the time Marty!! That is a great idea. Actually, I have hooks over all my doors...and I couldn't be without them!

  8. Marty,
    I think that is called being human, dear friend!!!
    I love the over the door hooks!!!
    Hm~m~m...perhaps I could use this here on the Prairie in our tiny 1970's Baths???
    Thanks for sharing!!! Clever idea, indeed!!!

  9. Perfect solution! I could have used that in our last home.We have a very similar bathroom as yours and no where to put a towel!

  10. Great idea and easy solution, Marty! You are so clever and in every room of your house, there's that wonderful Marty touch, I so love! I don't like my bathroom, but we do use the long towels as well...folded, though. Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. Yes! All the time. I discovered command hooks in much the same way. duh, me. Now I have them everywhere and they are so handy!

  12. What a nice big bathroom Marty. Mine is tiny!!
    My Gran used to say, sometimes we miss the nose on our faces... I think sometimes the light bulb just has to go off :-)
    Hugs, Gee

  13. I am truly impressed that there is so much about this subject that has been revealed and you did it so nicely, with so considerably class. Thank you.bathroom accessories

  14. Your bathroom looks lovely, and that is a very handy idea for towels!

  15. Frist of all Marty, your bathroom is gorgeous! The simple over the door hook is a wonderful solution. I use those on other doors in my home and love them. Thank you for sharing with us at TTF.

  16. The bathroom is the most used room in your house and it's the one room that all your guests will get to see when they come to visit. If you're about to start on a bathroom remodeling project then you know that it's important to get nicely styled fixtures, elegant tiling, warm flooring and soothing lighting but don't forget the bathroom accessories..

  17. Great solution! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!
