This guest bathroom in our beach cottage is rather small. It is a functional three piece bathroom - (tub/shower, toilet & sink) however, the space is rather tight. There is limited storage in the cabinet below the sink, but that is it. I was looking for some way to store small items like TP and washcloths.
The long narrow basket above the towel hooks was my solution. I like this solution because it takes functional advantage of some unused space that might otherwise just provide a spot for something decorative. It creates easy access to these items for guests (rather than having them dig through the cabinet). I also like how it is easy for me to see when the items need to be re-stocked (I don't need to dig through the cabinet either).
The basket was purchased from Target and was labeled as a "media" basket. It fits the two rolls of toilet paper perfectly as well as a few washcloths. Two screws were used the adhere the basket to the wall (one into a stud, and a drywall anchor for the second screw). The basket is very sturdy so this method of mounting it worked just fine.
Overall I like the way it looks and I'm happy to free up space in the cabinet below the sink! I must thank Pinterest for the inspiration for this idea. You can find all sorts of ideas out there for baskets and wall storage. NOTE - the clothespins on the towels are "towel-charms". They make it easy for guests to keep track of their towels. See the my post on these towel-charms here.
