S

Storage is key to a clean and tidy home, not least in the bathroom.

Ironically, the place where you get ready for the day ahead or unwind with a bedtime ritual before the lights go out is the room with the most clutter.

Toothbrushes on the side of the sink, toiletries strewn in the bath or shower, towels stacked in a corner, and no place for grooming essentials like tweezers, cotton swabs, and razors that you can call home can all result in your bathroom looking mostly like a bathroom looks like the Tasmanian devil has rampaged right through them.

The key to regaining control? A sleek, Tardis-esque bathroom cabinet.

Whether wall-mounted or free-standing on the floor, a whole world of bathroom cabinets is just waiting to bring order to your space. From designs with closed doors to hide various lotions and potions, to mirrored versions that double as storage and under-counter cabinets to keep your cleaning products where you need them, there’s plenty to choose from.

We’ve rounded up some of the best ideas for different budgets so you can find the right one.
