Aha! Hack: A No-Drill Hanging-Storage Solution for the Bath

Coat Rack in Bathroom by Matthew Williams for Organized Home Book

Coatracks needn’t be relegated to the entry. They’re useful in nearly every room of your home—but especially in tight spaces where you may need more storage. Which is why we love the idea of moving one into the bathroom, a room that tends to be small, can always use more storage options, and often has tiled walls that make it difficult to mount wall hooks (and if you’re a renter, impossible to do so).

Hang a range of baskets and bags (preferably in the same shade or material) to store extra rolls of toilet paper, spare towels, hair brushes, lotions, you name it. We especially like the idea of storing a hair dryer in an attractive cotton produce basket suspended from the coat stand.

Here’s what you need to get the look of this little corner of a bathroom we shot for Remodelista: The Organized Home.
