    Three Posts Pinecrest Over the Toilet Storage

    If you're looking for a piece of storage furniture that really keeps you organized, this is the best over the toilet storage system for you. With a cabinet door that can be used to store medications or your family's toothbrushes, a wide, low shelf for frequently used items, and three more shelves for decoration or smaller products, this unit is one of the most versatile on the market. The shelves are even adjustable, so you can put the cabinet up higher or lower, depending on what you need to store.

    Even with its storage, this unit manages to look classically stylish. The decorate trim on the top, frosted cabinet door, and contrasting bottom shelf all provide just enough to look at to make your bathroom look polished and neat.

    Best Cabinets: Elegant Home Fashions Dawson Over Toilet Space Saver

    Another great option that features cabinets is this unit from Elegant Home Fashions. The all-white exterior will blend in with most bathrooms and the interior shelves provide a ton of storage and vertical space for taller bottles like hairspray or an electric toothbrush. You can also adjust the shelf so you’re truly maximizing the space to your specific needs.

    The little details, like chrome knobs and criss-cross cutouts at the top, make this cabinet not just functional but stylish as well. Shoppers consistently leave feedback that the quality of the unit is amazing and note the elegant feel updates any space. The entire unit can hold up to 45 pounds.

    Best for Small Spaces: Ebern Designs Demna Over the Toilet Storage

    Ebern Designs

     Wayfair

    Most storage units do a pretty good job at taking up minimal space, but if space is really, really limited, a wall-mounted option instead of a standing unit is the way to go. Ebern Designs does a great job at containing bathroom items in a simple, efficient shelf that’s just under 30 inches long and 12 inches wide. And at 7.5 inches deep, you can have two, or maybe even three, rows of products.

    For smaller bathrooms or powder rooms with no medicine cabinet or under the sink storage, this would be a cost-effective solution. Shoppers have left feedback that the wall-mounted item is fairly easy to assemble, but the process can take long and aligning the door to close just right can be tricky.

    Best Wire: Crosley Furniture Aimee Space Saver

    Crosley Furniture Aimee

     Home Depot

    It might be a bit extreme to call bathroom storage a piece of art, but the curved corners of this unit make it a cut above the rest. Some storage and organizational units are meant to blend in, but this absolutely stands out. While it will cost a hefty penny, the deco-ish style of the frame and three tempered glass shelves make it worth it for your master bathroom or a space guests frequent.

    Also, even though the unit itself doesn’t have an enclosed cabinet, you can still manage to keep some items obscured, as the shelves are deep enough to hold decorative baskets. The bronze finish is an elegant alternative to the usual silver or gold.

    Best Low-Profile: Giantex Over the Toilet Rack Bathroom Shelf Storage Cabinet

    If vertical space is an issue or you just don’t want a tall unit, a single shelf is a perfect alternative. Though this Giantex cabinet is low on height, that doesn’t mean actual storage is lacking. It may just look like a frame that goes around the perimeter of your toilet, but behind the left and right cabinets are three shelves, two of which are adjustable. Each side also includes a toilet paper holder, and one side even has a door with an opening, so you can feed the paper through without having to see the roll.

    If that isn’t enough, the center drawer pulls down to reveal additional storage. Comfortably fitting over standard size toilet bowls, there’s enough space on the top and sides as not to interfere with flushing, whether you have a side handle or top button. Reviewers largely comment the assembly process is easy and the site even has a detailed, four minute video walking through the step-by-step assembly.

    Best Minimal Design: Harper Blvd Traditional Space Saver Shelves

    Harper Blvd Traditional Space Saver Shelves

     Overstock

    Minimal doesn’t have to be boring. The metal Harper Blvd frame is available in three different colors, chrome, black and white, so you'll without a doubt find the finish that works for your bathroom’s current aesthetic. It’s the simple, yet sleek style of the storage but in addition to the three adjustable shelves, the two baskets really make it stand out. At almost two inches high and ideal for five pounds it can store those accents like a diffuser or small plants. The other adjustable shelves hold up to 20 pounds. But due to the nature of the metal slats, which are about one inch apart, that doesn’t make this ideal for small items or bottles, as they’d fall through or over. Use this for bigger bottles, towels or even situate a tray on top to contain smaller items.

    Best Budget: Furinno Turn-N-Tube Toilet Space Saver

    At less than $35, it’s hard not to like this storage option. Though it’s wallet-friendly, the quality is sturdy and each of the five shelves can hold up to 10 pounds. That’s just enough for a few amenities, decor items and towels. While most storage solutions only use vertical space, this also utilized the often ignored space on the side of the toilet. This can be the perfect place to store a toilet bowl cleaner or plunger, which would normally sit on the floor, or extra rolls of toilet paper. Absolutely zero tools are required for assembly. You just turn and twist the poles so they interlock.

    Best Easy Assembly: Allzone Bathroom Organizer

    This is another easy assembly piece, but even easier. You literally take the organizer out the box and the assembly is done. No tools whatsoever are required, as the floor and ceiling act as anchors to keep the unit in place.

    The Allzone organizer works for ceiling heights as low as 66 inches and up to 118. In addition to the assembly, the actual function of the unit itself is beneficial, especially the shelves. You can purchase a unit with two or four tiers, but they both provide flexibility by being adjustable vertically and even horizontally. The shelves can go from a solid 22 inches wide up to 33 inches, which can hold a lot of stuff. You can truly customize this to your space’s needs and your level of storage.
