1. Mix-and-match
Play around with different types of storage (think concealed shelving, visible boxes, shelves up-high and so on) in order to match the various requirements your space needs to meet.

For example: you might need somewhere to store your favourite pamper products, or somewhere to keep your towels stored neatly out the way, or an easy-reach place to keep the kids' bath toys tucked out of sight...

2. Multi-function seating
For some spa-style relaxation, why not consider incorporating bench-style seating that can also double-up as a handy place to keep towels neatly stowed away.

3. Island style
Thought the island was purely for the kitchen? Think again! Incorporating an island into your bathroom will instantly up your storage options.

As per this space, you can also use the island to create a visually pleasing display of 'stuff' on the top, too; here, for example, fresh plants add a little greenery to an otherwise minimalist and delightfully neutral space.

4. Fold it out
Cabinetry that can offer clever open-out storage makes for a smart option in a smaller powder room, allowing you to store more yet take up less space. (We know. Minds blown.)

5. Behind the tub
For the 'bits' you don't need to access too often - for example, cleaning products, say - consider keeping them out-of-sight, out-of-mind by installing a storage solution (a cabinet, for example) that can neatly conceal them with minimal fuss or bother.

6. Work upwards
For a simple storage solution that can work wonders in a smaller space, consider designing your storage up. This will free up flooring space in your bathroom, helping to create the illusion of more room.
