Use trays

Place your bottles of perfume, colognes, creams, and the like on a tray. It will look like you’re displaying them.

Clear is in

Use acrylic containers to store your makeup and other essentials. It will help you find what you need at a glance.

Stock display

Bars of soap can be pretty to look at, so why not put them out for everyone to see? A simple clear vase is all you’ll need to put them on display.

Wall accent

Use racks and shelves to organize your bathroom essentials. Choose one that will match your bathroom.

Bottles and Pumps

Decant your hand soaps and lotions into pump dispensers. Add labels for easy identification.

Go vertical

A towel tree is a great alternative to those typical towel rings installed on walls.

Box it up

Everyday jewelry can get lost when you don’t have a proper place for them. So bring out your jewelry boxes to keep your jewelry safe.

Secret drawers

If your vanity has drawers, use one solely for your blow dryer and other hair tools. It will keep the wires organized. Hairbrushes, on the other hand can be kept in a pretty jar on the countertop.
