Storage Over Toilet

Updated

Bathrooms are notorious for never having enough storage, which is why we’ve curated this list of eight wooden over-the-toilet storage options. They all sit snugly around your toilet and cleverly use the space above the commode to give you a combination of open and closed storage. This lets you combine valuable space to hide practical but not pretty items, as well as providing you with areas to display a little decor that turns your bathroom from something purely functional to a room where form can meet function.

Tall Over The Toilet Storage Cabinet

Red Barrel Studio®

Constructed from manufactured eucalyptus and pine wood, this wooden over-the-toilet storage cabinet extends up to 66” high. It comes with two helpful tip-over restraint brackets. One fixed shelf inside the cabinet allows you to choose the perfect shelf height.

Designer Advice:

Available in navy blue, espresso, gray or white, this wood bathroom cabinet sits over the toilet. In a room typically finished in whites or neutrals, we love the opportunity to add some color with the navy option. Add some navy and white towels and a patterned shower curtain that includes hits of navy blue. This is a great way to make a sometimes boring room turn into something special.

Designer Advice:

If your bathroom has brown or gray (or colored) floors and tub/shower surround, this white wood over-the-toilet storage cabinet can give some relief from the neutral colors. The white is a true white with no other undertones and should relate well to most of the porcelain in your bathroom. This saves you from having the white of the cabinet look “dirty” in comparison to the true white of most toilets.

Designer Advice:

Go for the drama with this espresso brown over-the-toilet storage cabinet in your bathroom. Providing high contrast with all the white porcelain in a typical bathroom, repeat the dark brown color in your towel rods and sink cabinet pulls. An espresso-framed mirror over the vanity will pull the look of your room together. Just make sure to add some color with the artwork, towels and decorative accessories.

Storage Over Toilet

Buying Guide

For storage over toilet options, you’ll find that there are several different ways that you can take advantage of that valuable overhead space. Two of the most popular options we’ve seen include open shelving or closed cabinets. The kind of storage you’ll need will depend a lot on what you plan to put in your cabinets - are they things that you’d rather not see, or do they have any decorative benefit?

Along with the choice of closed or open shelving comes another consideration: How to mount or support your over-toilet storage. Many such storage racks or cabinets come with their own long, skinny legs for support; others require mounting. You should check to see what types of studs you have in your wall to see if mounting is an option; otherwise, look at ladder-style storage for your best bet.

When it comes to measuring for storage over the toilet, consider the size of the empty wall space. So start by measuring from the empty spot, from at least 6 inches over the tank to the top of the ceiling. Thereafter, measure the width of the available area. If you have more than 30 to 40 inches of width above the toilet, then it's all the better.
