45+ Toilet Paper Holder Ideas that will Get Your Decorating on a Roll


Toilet paper: rippled, quilted, or triple-ply, it’s (hopefully) in every bathroom you’ll ever use, and certainly every bathroom you’ll ever decorate. While it’s not a staple you would ever want to run out of, toilet paper can also be a hassle to store. Bulky and oddly shaped, those rolls can clutter up the space under the sink, or gather dust sitting on the back of the toilet, but they don’t have to be an eyesore. Whether you’re looking for something subtle that keeps a few extra rolls on hand and out of sight, something that provides storage for other bathroom essentials, or a big statement piece, there are plenty of toilet paper holders that fit your style.

In cramped spaces, consider using wall-mounted storage baskets to keep a few rolls conveniently nearby, while stashing the rest with other paper goods in a pantry or linen closet. Adding slim cabinets or storage towers might make sense in larger bathrooms, especially those already lacking storage space.

There are even DIY options for the crafty decorator. With these 45+ toilet paper holder ideas for inspiration, there’s only one question left: how will you roll?
