No under-sink storage space? No problem!

In a bathroom that lacks under-sink storage, make walls work overtime and beautify an empty space in one fell swoop. A row of Shaker pegs -- and a handful of pretty baskets -- are a stylish way to organize get-ready essentials.

 

1. Do a Double

Mount two rows of pegs in one line to max out the space over your toilet or bathtub, too. Six-peg maple Shaker racks, in Unfinished, $15 each, containerstore.com.

 

2. Measure Up

Look for a mirror with a hanging bar or rope, and make sure to center it over the sink. IKEA Ikornnes table mirror, in Ash, $30, ikea.com.

 

3. Bypass the Bar

Your bathroom just got even more streamlined: Pegs eliminate the need for towel racks.

 

4. Stash the Paper

An extra roll looks more polished when tucked into a pouch. From left: Round Tahiti baskets, $14 each, and Oval Makati waste basket, $20, containerstore.com. IKEA Nordrana basket, $10 for 2, ikea.com.

 

Clutter Control Tip

Use leather cord to make hanging straps for baskets: Thread the ends through the weave and knot them. Bead Landing leather suede cord$8 for 9 ft., michaels.com.
