Buying Guide

As much as we love to live clutter-free, it’s no mean feat organizing our stuff without enough storage spaces. A reality that homeowners living in micro apartments have to deal with every day. That’s precisely why places that are not meant to be used for storage, end up being used for it anyway. Like the toilet tank. If you are guilty of storing your bathroom accessories on the toilet tank (we all are), then you’d love the toilet tank storage.

These smartly designed shelves utilize the vertical space above toilet tanks. You can store your shampoos, paper rolls, towels and other knick-knacks without the risk of knocking them straight into the toilet. More importantly, these shelves are available in many beautiful designs that will fit any bathroom style.

Unless you have a toilet flush integrated into the wall, toilet tank storage shelves can extend from right under the tank to the ceiling. However, consider the size of the bathroom before you buy a ground-to-ceiling shelf. An oversized shelf is an eyesore in a small bathroom. Also, you might not need all those shelves anyway.

Make a list of the things that you will store in the shelves. Consider the depth of the shelves. Most designs will only be as deep as the tank itself so that it doesn’t jut outwards. Now narrow down on the number of shelves you need to accommodate the stuff. Pick a toilet tank storage that’s a close match to the size and capacity.

From completely enclosed shelves with clear glass panels to illuminated open shelves, to rustic industrial pipe shelves, there’s no dearth of choices. It all boils down to the existing bathroom décor.

Metallic open shelves mix well with contemporary styled bathrooms, whereas creative, rustic options like hanging baskets or an industrial pipe shelf can go with any décor.

Wooden storage matches any type of décor. You can just pick a stain or a finish that complements the toilet or other bathroom accessories. And it doesn’t always have to be a conventional cupboard styled one either. You can just install three floating shelves above the tank.

Tip: Integrate narrow, concealed drawers into the floating shelves for even more storage space.

From a decorative standpoint, you can always mix and match things up as long as it doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb.

If a full-sized storage shelf is overkill for your bathroom, then even an above-the-tank tray might suffice. These trays are placed on the tank itself. But they usually have a non-slip surface that prevents your stuff from being knocked over accidentally. Alternatively, you can use an adhesive or tape to stick them to the tank.

There are ample ways to decorate using these trays as well. Source an antique reclaimed wood box and use it as a tray. Or a wicker, rattan basket. Rustic chic is trending again. Just ensure that you check the dimensions of the tray before you order one.
