The shelves are mounted onto concealed brackets and provide a nice way to keep bathroom products neat and tidy.
Tiered wire baskets can also be a great way to keep towels and washcloths organized. Hanging wall hooks can also be helpful when placed on the door a wall. These hooks provide a wonderful way to hang up damp towels and keep bathrobes off the floor. You may also consider removing the floor level radiator and replacing it with a heated towel rail.
