Think like a mariner and outfit your bath with space-saving storage solutions and accessories designed to keep things shipshape. Above: We're all obsessed with Titanic-like bath mirrors, complete with storage shelf; for sourcing ideas, go to Design Sleuth: 5 Bathroom Mirrors with Shelves . Above: For a while now we've been championing the idea of cleats as towel hooks. For sourcing ideas, go to Nautical Hardware: 7 Cleats for Home Use . Above: Janet uses a marine water bucket as a place to stash towels, etc. See more at Marine Canvas Water Buckets as Bath Storage . Above: I grew up in a New England house with wall-mounted soap dishes (a good way to minimize sink clutter). For sourcing ideas, go to Etsy or eBay . Above: Such a good idea: a towel rack made from rope. Consult DIY: An Instant Towel Bar for Under $10 to re-create the look. Above: In my own (very small) bath, nautical-style recessed cabinet pulls help keep things streamlined. For something similar, consider Baldwin's satin nickel Recessed Cabinet Pull ; $15.40 at My Knobs. Above L: S Hooks turn a towel bar into storage space for bath accessories. Above R: Sally Schneider of An Improvised Life came up the genius idea of using S hooks hung from a shower bar for extra towel storage. Go to Nautical Style to see more of our marine design discoveries, including Rope Bunk-Bed Ladders ; on Gardenista, see  Nautical Bulkhead Lighting .
