Bathroom Storage Galore
An organized bath makes it easy to find what you need for morning routines and evening respites
You typically start and end your day in the bathroom, so it should be a place to energize or relax, rather than stress about the mess. These ideas let you create a place for all your necessities so you're bathed in calm—not clutter.
Carry onWhen multiple people use one bathroom, give each person a handled tote for transporting his or her own toiletries to the shower. Select a tote with compartments for shampoo and conditioner, shower soap, body brushes, shaving gel, and razor, for example. A handled tote with compartments is also handy for stowing cleaning supplies beneath the sink. Simply lift the tote out of the cabinet when it's time to clean and tuck it away when you're finished.
Order in the drawerUse drawer divider inserts to sort cosmetics and other necessities and keep them from rolling around when you open and close the drawer. Try a clear acrylic insert designed to expand or contract in length to better fit the drawer.
Mine the walls
Recess a medicine cabinet between the studs above the sink and you gain a mirror on the outside and a storage cabinet inside. Select a cabinet with adjustable shelves for greater flexibility. Add adhesive back hooks to the inside of the medicine cabinet door for holding smaller items.In the shower, create recessed niches between the studs and line them with tile to hold shampoo, conditioner, soap, body scrubs, and other necessities.
Think verticallyTake advantage of unused vertical wall space; install a cabinet above the toilet and hang an organizer on the back of the bathroom door.
Consider furnitureIf your bathroom is roomy, contemplate bringing in a piece of freestanding furniture for additional storage, such as a chest of drawers or a small armoire.
