Even in well-organised bathrooms, it never hurts to have a little more storage. The folks at The Family Handyman have a few ideas that offer room for toothbrushes, curling irons or razors, and all you need is a little PVC pipe.

The site offers up a number of bathroom improvement projects at the link below, but these ones stood out to us the most, mostly because they’re the easiest to do. Just grab a few small lengths of PVC pipe and some zip ties. Use the zip ties to attach the PVC to the sides of your shower caddy (assuming you have one), and you instantly have storage for toothbrushes, razors, flossers or anything else you may need to keep in the shower that you don’t necessarily want laying across the caddy itself. They also suggest using the same sized PVC superglued to the inside of a cabinet door in your bathroom to store curling irons or other hair irons and their power cables.

Both ideas keep those items in a dedicated space that’s out of the way of other things. Even if you don’t brush your teeth or shave in the shower, they have some other toothbrush storage ideas too at the link below. Head over to see more photos of these, and a few more options.

DIY Bathroom Storage [The Family Handyman]


  • Well, so long as you have some bleach around to kill off the inevitable mould, you should be fine…! 🙂

  • It’s not a very pretty storage solution, but I’ll admit that it’s handy when you’re in a pinch. I’m sure that there’s a better way to construct something that’s alittle more aesthetic than cable tying pipes to other things.
