Woman finding new ways to organize her bathroom with storage.

We may not think about it often, but we spend a lot of time in our bathrooms every single day. Your bathroom should probably be a space you enjoy spending time in. But for most people, that’s not the case. Since the bathroom serves so many purposes for each person in your household, it can quickly get disorganized, cluttered and overwhelming.

5 Bathroom Organization Ideas

With bathroom organizing ideas, you can make your bathroom space work for everyone in your home:

  1. Over-the-Toilet Shelving – The most common complaint about bathrooms is that there is never enough storage. Over-the-toilet shelving can be stylish and practical. By adding storage shelves and cabinetry, you can use a few baskets to keep your items organized, out of sight and within reach.
  2. Rolling Cart – A simple three-tiered rolling cart is the perfect way to keep all of your grab-and-go items organized. Think about making a cart that can be wheeled over to the mirror, used and then put away. Dedicate a shelf to shaving essentials for your spouse, create a spa shelf for bath time or create a shelf of easy-to-reach items for your little ones.
  3. Bins, Dividers and Baskets – Storage, storage, storage! It’s all about purposeful storage in your bathroom. Use drawer dividers to maximize usable space in your drawers. Try using baskets within cabinets to keep things handy and organized. You can also try to utilize bins for dirty clothes, guest towels or bathrobes.
  4. Shower Organization – Not everyone is lucky enough to have built-in shelving in their shower or tub. Using a hanging shower caddy can give you a convenient place to store essentials that don’t take up space. You can also invest in shower dispensers to eliminate the need for bottles in the shower.
  5. Updated Vanity – Investing in double sinks or a larger vanity is a great way to add storage to space without taking up additional space. One way to give your bathroom new life is by purchasing a prefab vanity unit that has built-in storage. By swapping out your existing vanity, your entire bathroom will have a brand-new feel.

While organizing your bathroom might not be at the top of your to-do list, knowing you can transform the entire space in just one afternoon might make it a little more of a priority. For all the time you and your family spend in the bathroom, you deserve to have it function in the best, most efficient way.
