Hairdryers tend to take up a lot of space in your bathroom. Their bulk often proves an obstacle when you're trying to get ready in the morning. What's more, because you use it every day, it can get pretty annoying to constantly be putting it away. After all, you're just going to have to drag it out again after your next shower. Then again, leaving it on your countertop doesn't exactly make you feel clean and organized. Maybe that's why so many people are looking for clever and convenient hair dryer storage ideas on sites like Pinterest.

Most bathrooms use one of two ways forhair dryer storage:

  1. Holders and Organizers
  2. Styling Drawer Organizers


Holders and Organizers

In fact, everyday holders and organizers like what you might find at Bed, Bath, & Beyond are usually what people think of when they're looking for hair dryer storage ideas. The problem is that these organizers, along with many homemade holders, don't tend to be aesthetically pleasing. They usually sit on top of our counters and clutter up the space, or they have to be placed in low cabinets making you bend over to retrieve the device we want. Cords are also still in the way as most of us don't put our flat irons and hair dryers away after use—we either leave them plugged in or we leave them out to cool down.



Drawer Organizers

Drawers have become much more than storage spaces. They're also smart and stylish—a place to find the latest and greatest in home design. Over the last few years, a bathroom drawer dedicated totally to styling has come into high-demand. These drawers neatly store curling irons, hair dryers, electric razors.

Our Style Drawer in-drawer powering outlet is the first electrical component specifically designed for adding in-drawer power to any cabinet whether it be customer built or purchased from a cabinet dealer. Style Drawer outlets let you keep your devices plugged in even when they're not in use. All you have to do to make those cords disappear is close the drawer. Don't worry. All of our outlets are ETL-Listed and comply with local building codes and pass inspections. We are a safety first company, so our outlets go above and beyond what's required by the National Electrical Code. Our Style Drawer powering outlets feature an integrated thermostat that cuts power to the outlet in the event that the surrounding temperature exceeds 120 degrees to minimize any risk or other damage making them the perfect for powering solution.
