In our last home, I used a hot iron holster on my countertop to hold my curling and flat iron. It wasn’t ideal as I like to keep counters pretty clear, but I didn’t have a ton of under-the-sink storage in this bathroom, so the hot iron holster worked for the space and I do recommend this method if you have a counter with overhang (not up against a wall). I placed a tray over it which held my jewelry, so the silicone holster wasn’t really that visible. (The master bathroom in our last h0me)
Before we moved into our new home, I knew I wanted a different, out-of-sight hot tools holder. I came upon this one and it turned out to be the perfect under-the-sink solution for my curling iron and other hot tools.
(My side is on the left- this is where I keep the hot tools holder)
It has three heat-safe canisters that can hold any hot tool, including a larger one that holds a hair dryer perfectly. I love this hot tools holder because it fits perfectly in the cabinets under my sink and I can place the hot tool in the canister as soon as I unplug it – no need to wait for it to cool down. I love how it keeps everything off of my counters and I know my hot tools are protected in the heat-safe canisters. Plus, it sits on the far left of my lower cabinet, which is right below where my outlet is, so it’s easy to plug hot tools in, and then stow them away.
My other under-the-sink storage solutions include a lazy Susan and a two-tier wire basket. I hope you find the right hot tools storage system for your space!

Why did you decide against a vanity split between the two sinks? Considering your love of makeup I would think it would have made things easier. Love your post bc I need this holder so thanks for sharing!
Hi Rita! I prefer the storage space over a place to put a stool. I also didn’t want to have a third mirror in the middle. Our home isn’t a custom home, so this was the standard cabinet configuration – however, I would not have change it. I love the amount of storage space we have and I always stand to do my hair and makeup, so it would feel weird to sit. I hope that makes sense!
Why doesn’t the bathroom hardware match?
What do you mean? It’s all the “aged brass” finish from rejuvenation.
Or do you mean that we mixed brass hardware with polished chrome plumbing? This is a very common practice (to mix metals in spaces from kitchens to bathrooms). If you follow a lot of designers, you can see this in their work too. Some people don’t like to mix metals as a personal preference, but I’ve always loved to, throughout our home.
I have also mixed my metals in my bathroom and love the look. I have the same storage for my hot tools under my sink, but we built a custom home and I had my electrician add an outlet under there as well, which keeps things extra clean and convenient as I just leave them plugged in under there and don’t have to take it out.
Chelsey – I wish I had had that option (to add the outlet under there – I’m kind of kicking myself not to have thought of it while we were building – dammit, haha 🙂
I love mixing metals as well – everything the same feels…a little dated to me, but that’s just my personal preference. I have seem some beautifully designed spaces that use the same finishes everywhere, but it’s pretty rare to see professional designers not mix metals, just as you’d mix wood, wovens, rattans, linens, velvets, etc in so many spaces. The textures and contrast are what make rooms interesting 🙂 Have a great day!
I wanted a gold mirror in our bathroom but thought I couldn’t do it because of our polished chrome faucet, but now I’m thinking of mixing metals. Do you suggest the mirror be the only gold or should I add some more gold on other fixtures? Also, love that wallpaper! Where is it from?
Hi! The wallpaper is linked here: https://www.veronikasblushing.com/2019/12/why-weve-moved-4-times-in-12-years-how-we-found-our-new-home.html
You can absolutely mix metals – I did brass cabinet hardware and mirrors and chrome for all plumbing fixtures.
