5 Ways to Organize Toiletries In the Bathroom
Keep your must-haves accessible while maintaining a sleek and beautiful aesthetic
In any bathroom, bottles of shampoo, lotion, and other daily essentials can easily turn into visual clutter and ruin the overall look and style you're aiming for. Whether you have a spacious loo or a compact T&B, keep it pristine and neat with these quick organizing must-dos:
1. Be ready with mini receptacles.
Those who are sharing the bathroom with a roommate or a significant other may want to control clutter using mini baskets, small trays, and tiny organizers that can hold your toiletries. Your bin of toiletries can be placed beautifully on your side of the counter.
RL Tip: For tiny organizers you can use, visit Daiso Japan and The Landmark for options.
2. Install shower or bath caddies above the sink.
Low on counter space? No need to fret! Install a caddy above the sink—and voila—you now have a space for your essentials. This helps you see your belongings at a glance and get what you need in a snap. Since it's above the sink, it won't get wet, too!
3. Invest in sturdy wall-mounted shelves.
If your bathroom counter can only accommodate the sink, it's best to work with blank walls. Install wooden wall-mounted shelves, fix your essentials, and put them on display. You have the option of placing your belongings in a tray or a box first before putting it on the shelf.
RL Tip: Remember to keep this part of the bathroom clean and clutter-free always. If you're placing it above the water closet, be careful when getting and returning your items—they might go straight into the bowl!
4. Use pretty trays and vintage-inspired organizers.
Do you love visiting thrift stores? Source for distressed trays and rustic-inspired bins. These can be repurposed into organizers that will surely liven up your bathroom counter. If you're following a theme, don't forget to choose pieces that work well together. In this bathroom, the organizers and trays follow the feel and palette of the wall.
5. Keep your must-haves hidden from view.
If you have a tight space to work with, you can purchase a mirror with a secret cabinet! This livens up the wall, you can check your appearance before stepping out, and of course, keep your toiletries in place.
