Ideas for my “toilet room”?

It’s easy to put up pictures in this tiny space, but I need space to store 2-3 rolls of toilet paper, a container of wipes, and spray deodorizer. Right now, I just have a wire shelf sitting on the tank lid, which I need access to, of course. I need a bunch of ideas.
I tried to or may have posted this before. I’m having problems with my newest IOS update.

q ideas for my toilet room
10’ ceiling, orange peel texture, good tile floor. Small saloon doors. Built-in tp holder and magazine rack. Color is a dark beige. We leave the light on all night, so a multi-bulb chandelier is out of the question.
Please inspire me! 😇💞

    Here are a couple ideas I found. I really like the second one. I did something similar to the first pic for towel storage, but we used pipes. For my bathroom I used a cabinet similar to the third pic, except it has two towel bars on the bottom, rather than a shelf

      I really love the baskets too. My initial plan, where we putt he pipe and wood shelves, was to get wooden crates and fix them to the wall to store towels. I still love the idea, but in order to find crates the size I needed they were either really expensive, or I would have to wait forever to find enough for what I had planned in my head. I do love our shelves tho, and now I can use the shelves as a place to "put" the crates, or baskets, and use the baskets as dividers

    This spot is too small for much, but the shelf looks very light and airy. I would raise it up and mount it to the wall so you can access the toilet lid more easily. It would also look more balanced that way on such a high/narrow wall. If you want to hide the toilet paper, get a round vase or cardboard box (like an oatmeal box) and paint or cover it to coordinate with your other décor. This would also work for the air freshener, and even the toilet brush. Or maybe you could "hide" the toilet paper by wrapping it in patterned gift wrapping tissue? That would add a nice pop of color to the neutral background of everything else.

      I could mount my shelf unit higher on the wall until I can get Something more permanent. I’ve been meaning to do the oatmeal box idea. I had not thought about using bright patterned paper, but I have just the thing. Thank you for several ideas! 😇💞

    I think I spotted a mirror in one photo. I could add a small mirror on one side, I think, but the toilet faces the glass shower. And should I go with white or brown baskets or shelves? 😇💞

    They have toilet tissue stands. They hold 5 rolls of toilet paper.
    4 rolls storage and 1 roll ready to use. Ross, etc. etc. Hope this helps.😇

      I have very little floor space, but this is a good idea. I’ll check them out. 😇💞

    Glad I could give you a few ideas. I will admit they all came from other HomeTalk posts that I have seen. I just love this site!!!

    I put cabinets with doors over all my toilets . The doors are really necessary because of the spray that comes from a toilet. Sad but true. When I moved in the overhead light obviously had not been cleaned in several years and had a layer of dried spray all over it

    I would get one of the toilet paper holders that sits n the floor and holds 3-4 rolls of paper. Think about a small cabinet with doors, and maybe an open shelf. On the open shelf you can place some pretty things to match the décor. Need a little color, either paint the space, or some colorful prints on the wall.

      Thanks, Lisa. I am considering a cabinet. I have also designed a kind of built in bookcase to go behind and above the toilet, made from an old six foot bookcase, but I don’t know if it would ever get built. 😇💞

    I would put in a recessed shelving on the other side of the toilet from the roll. I do like the baskets over the toilet for towels.

    To make the space look wider I would run the shelves from wall to wall. Brighten up your colors and use colors that make you happy. The ‘over-the-john’ cabinets That free stand from the floor dominate the area and are overbearing. It’s fun to doll up ‘just wood’ shelves with some wood trim that’s cute or molding. Post what you do! I like floral swags too. Eucalyptus makes for good smalls....natural room freshness

    Shelf is always nice. Room for lots of stuff. You can connect it to the walls on either side. Good luck.

    I used wood crates in my main bathroom. I use it for TP and towels. It is useful and it looks nice!

    Crates look very nice and hold quite a lot of 'stuff.'

     wall to wall shelves will give you plenty of storage space. Conceal toilet paper and small items in baskets or other pretty containers. Paint the walls the color of your choice and you can even use a wallpaper on the back wall to spruce it up.Have fun!
