Organizing the Bathroom


Bathroom items that need to be organized include cleaning supplies, brushes and combs, make-up, deodorant, toothbrushes and toothpaste, clippers, medicine, towels, bathtub toys, extra toilet paper rolls, and maybe even reading materials. How do you maximize such a small space to include these items?

Bathrooms should have a plastic carrier for cleaning supplies to put under the sink so that all your supplies are in one place. Your top drawer can have dividers for deodorant, brushes, make-up, clippers, toothpaste, etc. You can make the dividers yourself by getting checkbook boxes or other small boxes, and covering them completely with dark contact paper. The contact paper makes them easier to wipe out periodically.

Medicine can be put in a clear bin or shoe box, and once again, you can make it look nicer by covering the box with contact paper. Once a year, go through your medicine bottles and throw out anything that has expired. Then put the box in a high cupboard that cannot be reached by children. Or if you have a mirror that opens, you can keep your child-proof medicines in there, along with your mouthwash and moisturizer.

Towels are usually stored in a cupboard or in drawers. But if you have limited cupboard space, roll up your towels and display them somewhere visible, especially if the towels match the bathroom decor. Baskets can be used for this purpose.

Bathtub toys can be stored in a drawer, a plastic bin inside a cupboard, or in a net attached to the bathtub wall. For several years, we had tubes and connectors to play with in the bathtub, and we stored that in a separate drawer so that they would be easy to find. Also, instead of having so many bath toys, you could get rid of old toys whenever you acquire new ones.

You can easily add a cupboard to the wall above the toilet without using up any floor space. This cupboard would be perfect for medicines or extra toilet paper rolls. Consider doing this if you have no drawers and no cupboards at all.

In a basket on the back of the toilet, you can have some comic books or other reading material. There are other types of racks that you can put up on the wall. For example, you can have a set of twelve essential oils mounted up on the wall on a wooden shelf-like picture. (These are kind of like shadow boxes.) As you can see, organizing the bathroom isn’t so hard after all.

    Bathroom cabinets definitely can have a way of getting out of control if dividers aren’t used or old things are periodically thrown away!

    I like organizing and finding cute ideas on Pinterest. My husband made a board for me to attach 3 small Ball jars and I have Q-tips, flossers, and cups in them for the kid’s bathroom. It works perfectly and keeps them neat and tidy!
