Declutter and clear everything

Before you begin with the actual organizing of your bathroom, it's vital that you start with the decluttering process first. Remember, you should only be organizing things in your bathroom that are absolutely essential in the first place. To get to a point where you’re only left with the essentials to organize, you need to conduct a solid decluttering first.

Some of the items that you need to declutter from your bathroom may include towels, cosmetics, hair tools and accessories, skin care products, toilet paper, medication, decor items, beauty appliances, and bathroom cleaning supplies. 

Keep the best, declutter the rest!

Keep all corners and counters clutter-free

The amount of counter space in most bathrooms is fairly limited because you’re not meant to store a lot of items in this location. Make sure to keep as few items as possible on the counter, and consider using a tray to corral any items that you want to keep permanently.

It is also a good idea to restrict the use of the counter for storing items to the back third of the counter space. This offers you more room when you’re getting ready in the morning.

Utilize inside drawers for storage and use dividers

Most people don’t use the inside of the cabinet doors in their bathroom, but it is indeed a handy nook to store a lot of items from your bathroom. You can further increase the space of your cabinet by utilizing over the door organizers in order to place some important items such as your hair styling products. 

You can also opt for command hooks to hang towels and washcloths. These hooks can easily be relocated as well whenever you want to change things up in your bathroom. Adding other utility add-ons such as toothbrush organizers in the cabinet will also help to increase the usefulness and appeal of the drawers.

Use drawer dividers

A cluttered drawer is a nightmarish scenario because it takes forever to find the things you’re looking for. You can make matters a lot easier on yourself by using drawer dividers to help organize the items. 

Acrylic drawer dividers are a popular choice in bathroom organization and when it comes making your drawers look neat and tidy. You can opt to store similar items together to help make things easier to locate in double time. If you want to distinguish between different sections, you can opt for the use of drawer liners as well.

Categorize different containers for family members

Having a separate container or caddy for each member of your family is a great way to organize the bathroom. This is especially true when you have multiple kids at home and you want to keep their items separated for various reasons. 

When everything is located in a singular location, it makes mornings a lot easier for children. They just have to find their caddy, utilize the things they need, and then place the items back into their personal containers for the next day.

It also makes cleaning and organizing your bathroom a lot easier going forward.

Pro tip: To make things further easier on all parties involved, you can use a label maker to further sort out the containers. It not only improves with the organization of the storage units, but also beautifies the look of your bathroom overall.

Organize the Bathtub and Shower

It can be fairly challenging to organize a shower and bathtub space as these elements are not designed with storage in mind. Some people have shelves or cubbies in the shower to help store their soaps and other bathing essentials.

Other bathrooms, however, leave you with nothing but the ledge of the bathtub to act as the storage space. If you are in such a predicament, try to add a shower caddy in your bathroom to help you fit and organize all your shower essentials. 

We’d recommend using a high-quality caddy in your bathroom and not go with the suction models as these can be notoriously unreliable. You wouldn’t want to reach for a product mid-way through your shower and end up dropping the entire caddy on the floor!

A well-built shower caddy can be installed on the wall inside your shower cubicle or bathtub to help you easily access everything you need as you scrub your merry self.

Make use of the hamper or laundry bin

Placing a laundry bin in your bathroom to stow away any dirty or wet clothes/towels makes it easier to do your laundry. It also helps to make your bathroom and the rest of your house look neater as there are no dirty clothes lying about the place.

If you have the space, you can also opt for the use of multiple hampers or laundry bins in order to separate the towels from the clothes.

Use towel hooks instead of towel bars

It is a little known secret that it's a lot easier to actually hang your clothes or towels from a hook instead of a bar, even though the bar appears to be more spacious. It also allows the towels to dry a lot quicker when they’re hanging off hooks. 

If you have a towel bar installed already, you can save this space for the use of hand towels. This lets you install hooks for others in the family to hang their bathing towels. If you aren’t keen on mounting anything on the wall of your bathroom, you can always install the hooks on the bathroom door.

Use clear containers for easy access

Clear containers should be the go-to choice of storage units when you’re looking for containers for your bathroom. This allows you to easily differentiate between various containers without having to open or look through each of them individually. This can be a real time saver in the long run and in crunch situations. 

If you don’t have the space for clear containers in your bathroom, you can also choose to install some shelf space to store the units.

A go-to location to usually store all clear containers is the place under the sink in your bathroom. This is an underutilized location but offers plenty of promise to stow away a lot of containers, especially if you have a cupboard under the sink.  If you have a label maker, make sure to use it to help you further organize the clear containers under the sink.

Make use of space-saving containers and accessories

There are numerous specialist items that have been specifically designed for the bathroom in order to help you save space in a big way. Purchasing such accessories can be a big boon, especially if you have a sizable bathroom with various items. 

This includes items such as:

  • A bath-toy mesh bag to put away all the toys of your little toddlers
  • A lazy susan is a circular tray that you can spin in place. Placing all your toiletries in the tray will help you access everything you need with a quick spin. If you have multiple users for each bathroom, consider using two lazy susan’s if you have the space for it
  • A double bathroom rod to let you dry your towels and delicates separately 
  • A rustic towel ladder offers multiple options to help you dry various pieces of garments. In fact, any type of tiered organizer can be extremely handy in a bathroom if you have the floor space to spare
  • A makeup and cosmetic organizer to help you segregate all your essentials neatly and effortlessly
  • Over-the-toilet shelves that help to radically increase the storage space in your bathroom

Clean and maintain everything regularly

Once you’re done with the decluttering and organizing of your bathroom space, there is only one thing left to do really — maintain your bathroom. This can be a lot more challenging than you think, especially if you have children in the house. 

We recommend that you spend some time at least one day a month engaged in deep cleaning of your bathrooms. This should be supplemented with weekly or bi-weekly minor clean up sessions that help to retain the organized nature of your bathroom.

If you spend smaller sessions cleaning your bathroom once every week or twice every week, the deep cleaning session will go by a lot quicker and easier every month.

Bathroom Organization Done Right

If you’ve managed to successfully declutter and organize the bathroom, you should feel like the room has become considerably more spacious than when you first began this process. Feeling a sense of expansion is the ideal result of organizing a space well.
