Keeping curling irons, straightening irons and even blow dryers safely stored can be difficult. After all, you can’t very well put them away in a drawer or cabinet while they are hot. A good solution for this is to take a metal file box and use it for storage.
You can easily hang the box from the wall or side of a cabinet by just cutting holes in the back and using Command hooks for hanging. Metal file boxes are non-flammable which make them a great choice for storing those heated appliances and you can keep them within easy reach of the bathroom mirror. The metal boxes look great and give you the perfect storage solution for items that are normally a bit difficult to store properly.

Baskets & More Baskets
Bathroom organization and space saving is not nearly as difficult as it sounds. If you have room on the walls, why not mount baskets to keep things neat and tidy? You can have baskets for towels and washcloths, shaving supplies or just whatever you need additional space to store. If you have kids, give them each their own basket to keep their bathroom supplies within reach. Baskets are easy to mount on walls and look great as bathroom décor.
Bathroom storage with cubicles and shelves
Personalizing your bathroom and keeping it organized really can go hand in hand. If you have a bit of space on the wall behind your toilet or sink, consider personalized boxes. You can have a box for each person in the family and keep toothbrushes, cologne or anything that you need within reach. This is a great idea for kids’ things so they can get to them easily without having to be able to reach the medicine cabinet.
Another option to keep everything you need right at your fingertips — but off your countertops is to use spice racks as storage space. Organize them on the wall by your sink.
A wall storage cabinet with a mirror is also a practical idea. You can find it at Ikea at a reasonable price.
You can create other beautiful bathroom do-it-yourself storage spaces by using coffee containers by simply gluing rope to old coffee cans. The great part is that if you drink coffee, you may already have the cans on hand. Just glue rope to them and to really make the look unique, use cans of different sizes. These are great for holding brushes and combs, lotions or even those curling irons when they are not in use.
Use jars and label them and inside you can store your toothbrushes and toothpaste. Each member of the family can have a jar so they don’t get misplaced.
Make it look bigger
Want to really make your bathroom look organized? Paint it. The combination of yellow and gray works well to make the bathroom look a bit more spacious and let’s face it, they’re just lovely colors when combined. These are great colors if you are looking to add virtual space to the bathroom or if you just want something a bit elegant to give your bathroom that sleek and clean look.
