Towel Totes. Simple shelves can provide much-needed storage for bulky towels and free up space in small bathrooms. Use shelves designed to store wine, which have deep cubbies and a wide surface top. Attach brackets to the wall, screwing into studs for support. Turn wine shelves on their side and screw the cubbies to the brackets. Spice up the racks by adding decorative floral and picture arrangements that bring fun and interest to otherwise standard storage.
