Curate your bathroom sink.

If you have a spacious bathroom sink, you can transfer cotton balls and swabs in apothecary jars or clear containers. You may also add a tray to keep your face towels at bay as well as to display a couple of scents with beautiful packaging.

For smaller countertops, corral a small potted plant, a colorful soap dish or dispenser, and bathroom scents in one corner of the sink to cozy up the space.

Hide the cleaning products.

Keep your cleaning essentials inside the bathroom cabinet. If you don't have cabinets in the bathroom, you may store them neatly in baskets under the sink.

Reevaluate your shower caddy.

Take note of the items that you put in your caddy. Discard those that you haven't used in a month and make sure you finish that bottle of shampoo before getting a new one. You may also place your items in separate dispensers to organize the products that you use in the shower.

A towel rack is your friend.

Depending on the use and space of the bathroom, use a towel rack to organize your clean towels. You may consider adding a series of towel bars to dry the ones you've already used. If you're feeling extra creative and you have budget to spare, you can also use a ladder as towel rack.

For small bathrooms, consider adding hooks at the back of the door.
