If you would be asked to describe your ideal bathroom, what are the non-negotiables for you? There are those who'd prefer to have a small shelf where they can keep extra toilet paper and bottles of shampoo, while there are those who would appreciate a simple rack where they can place a few reading materials.

But what if you were granted with only a small bathroom? Can you still spruce it up with the details and accessories that you like? You can achieve a clutter-free bathroom that you would love to use with a few tricks and pieces. Be guided by these handy hints:

Choose cabinets and built-in shelves

Do you keep your cleaning materials and extra supplies in the bathroom? Keep these essentials in place with a sturdy cabinet.

Add a medicine cabinet

Are you always faced with a messy counter when preparing for work each morning? Avoid stress by organizing your must-haves inside a cabinet. It provides sanitary storage for toothbrushes, first-aid, meds, and toiletries. You can also choose one with a mirror for dual purpose.

Invest in storage baskets

You can easily store towels and other bathroom accoutrements in these. If you have curling irons and other similar products in the bathroom, you can also use these as organizers.
