Converting your combo shower-tub into just a standalone shower opens up space for more creativity on your bathroom remodel.
Another way to add storage to a small bathroom is to use hooks. There are several over the door options, or you can install a few permanent hooks by your shower, sink or any wall space.

This enables you to make more creative use of the wall space in your bathroom.
