Let’s face it: The bathroom is one of the hardest rooms to keep organized. Most of us are trying to store a lot of items in one small space, so, of course, it takes no time for it to become a jumbled mess. But luckily, we’re here to help. Below, we present some of our best bathroom organization tips.

Floating shelves are aesthetically pleasing and give you a ton of extra storage for items such as toilet paper, bath towels, feminine products, and more. You could also install a shelving unit to fit around your toilet. And just because you’re working with a small area doesn’t mean you can’t add some personality. Shelving is another way you can display prints and other small decor pieces.
Embrace Lazy Susans
If you have under-the-sink storage in your bathroom, you probably know how quickly this spot can become a disaster zone. Kiss those days goodbye with a few lazy Susans that allow you to easily store and access products when you need them. Pro tip: Store taller items in the center so that you can see the smaller ones.
Consider using mason jars or canisters to store Q-tips, cotton balls, dental floss picks, and other countertop items. This way, the containers are easily accessible without being an eyesore. This also frees up space in your cabinets and drawers.

Tension Rods in the Shower
To avoid an avalanche of bottles every time you step into the shower, consider installing a tension rod and S-hooks to create designated places to store shower products, tools, and loofahs.
If you have the floor space, a tiered organizer, like a rolling cart, can be a total game-changer. Don’t let the size of these things fool you; they can hold a lot more than you think, making them ideal for skincare, hair products, and toilet paper.
Create Your Own Linen Closet
If you’ve not been blessed with a linen closet, creating your own is as easy as purchasing a hutch. It can be big or small, tall or short, just as long as it gives you ample storage opportunities.
Divide Your Drawers

Do your bathroom drawers look more like junk drawers? Well, there’s an easy solution to that: bamboo drawer organizers. This way, you can group similar things and keep them together for frequent use. It also allows you to curate what items are in your drawers; anything leftover can go below the sink or on a shelf.

Add Baskets to the Inside of Your Cabinet Doors
The key to making the most of your space is getting creative with space, which can be as simple as hanging basket storage inside your cabinet doors. We like to use these baskets for hair tools and extra products.
Keep Stylish Pieces on a Tray
Pretty smaller items like perfume bottles, makeup brushes, jewelry, and lotion can sit on a stylish tray on your bathroom countertop. Not only does it look nice, but it gives all of those everyday products a place – and they’re easy to grab in a hurry.
