May 23, 2022

Most bathrooms are sorely lacking in storage space. Meanwhile, you have tons of personal care items, medications, hair appliances, beauty tools, etc., which makes it a nightmare to find space for all of your stuff. We know this also leads to a big mess on your tiny counter space for a double-whammy of frustration getting ready in the morning.

Bathroom organization tips

Here, we offer 14 bathroom organization hacks to help you triumph over the mess and keep your bathroom in a tidier state.

1. Get organized

Storage 101 calls for organization to help you keep everything in its place. If you have many finicky items like toothbrushes, scissors, tweezers, clippers, zit cream, swabs, makeup remover pads, etc., you can use things like mason jars or kitchen containers to stand them upright and keep them handy. By standing things upright, you narrow the space they take, so you can leave them on the counter.

Organizing your bathroom makes it a lot easier to clean it in the future, saving yourself a lot of hassle ahead of time, and making it easier to keep your bathroom clean longer due to the reduced clutter.

2. Utilize wall space

Consider any wall space you can use. You can add some shelves and then use them for the things you don’t use every day, but often enough that you want them nearby. A perfect example is directly above your toilet.

You should also have at least one wall at your vanity that can be used for shelves or hanging organizers. A great place to shop for storage ideas is your local office supply store. For example, hanging file holders make an excellent slot for items like shavers, smaller hair appliances, and brushes.

Other types of organizers combine shelves and little drawers, which are ideal for makeup removal pads, cotton balls, swabs, eyebrow pencils, and eyeliners.

3. Use the door

The back of your bathroom door is ideal for hooks where you can hang towels, your robe, or things like towels. It is also a great place to hang a shoe tree where you can slip in items like hair care products, hairdryers, and moisturizers.

4. Over-the-toilet cabinets

There are several different styles of bathroom cabinets designed specifically for placement over the toilet. This is ready-made storage with shelves and cabinets that allow you to optimize your bathroom space.

5. Use plastic drawers in your cabinets

Brands like Tupperware make plastic caddies with several drawers. Measure the space under your vanity, and then shop around for one that fits. This allows you to tuck away far more items, as everything is contained neatly in the drawers. This is a great place for the things you don’t want to be exposed to guests, but that you use every day.

6. Install some hooks

Hooks can be added to the inside of your vanity doors or on walls. They can be used for all kinds of things, not just towels. Simply hang see-through bags on the hooks, and then fill them up with whatever you want. The see-through bags are important so you can find what you need quickly.

7. Organize drawers

If you have drawers in your vanity, use organizing trays to keep things neat and free up space. You can also find stackable trays that allow you to have two layers of storage for things like brushes, curling irons, hair products, shavers, makeup appliers, etc. Another excellent source for these types of organizers are places like hobby stores and kitchen shops.

8. Use magnets

Magnetic strips can be placed inside the medicine cabinet or on vanity doors to hold small metal tools like scissors, nail clippers, tweezers, bobby pins, and hair accessories. Anything small and metal can be secured on the strip.

9. Use baskets

Baskets are great for storing things like cleaning products under the toilet or extra toilet paper.

10. Use the toilet tank top

The top of the toilet tank is another good spot where you can put a basket or two for things like clean face cloths, toilet paper, and larger appliances like hair dryers.

11. Install a shower caddy

Shower caddies fit over the showerhead. They are very easy to install and are ideal for all your shampoo and conditioners, shaving cream and shavers, hair treatments, body wash, soap, and poof sponges.

12. Think “tiers”

Look for little counter caddies that give you more bang for your buck. Two- or three-tiered counter caddies are popular for kitchen counters, so go to your local kitchen shop and look for options.

13. Raid your local kitchen shop

Come to think of it, you should head to your local kitchen shop to find some inspiration as well. Like business supply stores, they have storage products for finicky items such as spice racks, utensil organizers, dry goods containers, and more.

14. Use the floor space

Use every inch of floor space you can, and find storage solutions with the same footprint. Think tall and narrow, and you might be surprised at the types of shelves and cabinets you can find.

Just because a bathroom is small doesn’t mean you need to suffer every morning. These ideas can help free up space and ensure that everything you need is within reach.
