We can all agree that the bathroom is one of those areas in the home that are tough to keep in order, one reason being that we keep a lot of items stored inside. Thankfully, there are plenty of simple ways to defeat the clutter in your T&B. Here are 10 ways to finally organize your bathroom once and for all.

1. Get a cabinet.

The simplest and probably most efficient way to organize any room is by using a trusty cabinet. Whether yours is a free-standing model or mounted on the wall, a cabinet will give you plenty of room to store your bathroom items, including those you’d prefer to keep hidden away.

2. Install some shelves.

Another tried-and-tested storage hack: shelves! It’s not just bathroom and self-care products you can stash here—you may also opt to use the available space for a little bit of décor.

3. Make the most of bare spaces.

Want to take advantage of empty space in your small bathroom? Go for corner racks or shelves. Again, these can be used to store not just your bath products, but even some pieces of décor, like a small plant.

4. Repurpose your unused jars.

Jars are great for storing items like cotton balls, cotton buds, toothbrushes, and even makeup tools like brushes and eyeliner pencils. These are a good solution if you don’t have enough space for a cabinet, plus they allow for easy identification of and access to items you need when you need them.

5. Hang up your towels.

You probably already know that towels can easily breed different sorts of germs and bacteria, especially if they’re stored inside the bathroom, which is often damp and humid. One way to help control the spread of germs is by allowing your towels to dry well, and towel bars or hooks are a great tool to achieve that. Aside from towels, you can also use bars or hooks for other items, like your clothes and delicates.

6. Use bins.

If racks and hooks aren’t your thing, you can go for bins and baskets instead. You can use these to hold not just towels but also laundry, magazines, or bathroom products.

7. Keep your stuff in order.

These organizers may be small, but they can hold plenty of items and help keep them in order, while also helping to keep clutter at bay. Place these next to your sink for quick and easy access.

8. Invest in mobile storage.

The best thing about carts, aside from the fact that they offer plenty of storage space, is that they can easily be moved around. These versatile items can hold just about anything, and will be a trusty element of any room in your house.

9. Divide and conquer.

Ever get frazzled by those drawers that seem to hold deep stashes of random items? Fix that issue by using some drawer dividers, which can help set a certain area of the drawer for a specific item, and therefore help you be more organized.
