Do you like to shop?

It seems like people are either team love shopping or team hate it.

Shopping is one of my favorite things to do! 

And home decor stores are my favorite places to shop. 

HomeGoods & TJ Maxx are at the top of my list because there is always something new in these stores.

But if you see something you like you better grab it quick because it most likely won’t be there the next trip you make to the store.

This post isn’t sponsored by HomeGoods, I just wanted to share a few pieces I saw in the store while I was out shopping. 

If you don’t have a HomeGoods nearby…no worries…I’ve shared a few other options at the end of this post.

Do You Need Extra Bathroom Storage?

My husband also likes to shop which is good for me…although he does get bored if we’re in HomeGoods too long!? 

The other day while running errands we stopped in HomeGoods/Marshalls to make a return. 

While there I started looking for something to put in our small bathroom.

We have a typical powder room downstairs with a pedestal sink and toilet…which means there is NO storage. 

We used to have a basket on the floor to hold extra rolls of toilet paper. But I was “over it” being in the bathroom and repurposed it one day while looking around the house for a basket to hold all the dog toys.

Since then I’ve been storing the extra toilet paper in the hall closet just outside the half bathroom. 

But that’s not really convenient if you run out…lol!? 

Our small bathroom doesn’t have much extra floor space so there is no room for anything too large. 

As I browsed around HomeGoods I stumbled across a few options that could work.

Small Bathroom Storage Ideas From HomeGoods

This wicker piece was cute but I’m not sure it would even hold 2 rolls per basket so then it would just look awkward for what I needed it to be used for. 

One roll per basket shelf would look odd…don’t ya think?

But look at this option that’s a bit bigger so would be great in a small bathroom!

The next two were a bit modern and weren’t quite right for our half bathroom. 

I can see these in a bathroom where you would need extra storage to hold lotions and hair products.

Or they’d be perfect in a college dorm or student apartment.

Check out this one I found here.

I figured I’d take a look around the basket section since a basket had worked in the space before so maybe I could find another one I liked. 

I loved so many of them but really wanted something taller to use more vertical space in the room.

Check out these great baskets here, here and here.

I spotted a few others that were more my style but too big for the bathroom.

Then decided to check out the home office area and found a couple that made more sense for our needs for small bathroom storage. 

And as a bonus, they were closer to the modern farmhouse style I love!

I decided the storage tower with the wood top would be perfect for our small bathroom. 

The basket areas were large and would give me enough room to contain some extra necessities and the wood top would allow me to add some decorative accessories. 

My only hesitation was the color…it was black. 

Our powder room has silver hardware and a silver framed mirror above the sink so I wasn’t sure the black color would have looked right.

The Perfect Option For Our Small Bathroom

We decided to buy it and just see what it looked like in the room because we could always return it.

As we were walking out we saw the same storage piece in someone’s cart…and it was silver/chrome/pewter…whatever color it was…it was the color I needed. 

My husband suggested I distract the other shopper and he’d switch our black tower for her silver….he was kidding…kind of!? 

Well, I decided we should just go back to the home office section to give one more look around

And guess what…we found another silver storage tower sitting right there!

The difference is subtle but I LOVED the lighter color.

We snagged it and ran to the checkout…okay maybe we walked!

I couldn’t wait to see if it would work in our small bathroom.

I filled the storage shelf with white hand towels and extra rolls of toilet paper.

The size of this little storage piece is perfect for our little bathroom. 

It takes no more floor space than the basket that used to sit there but holds so much more.

I call that a win!

A simple candle and a small mason jar of flowers that I had here at home placed on the top of the storage shelf are the perfect addition. 

I’m a happy girl… it doesn’t take much…I’m pretty simple!
