The bathroom has some of the most foot traffic in the home. Between bathing, people taking care of business, and simply freshening up in the mirror, it can be a challenge to keep things looking tidy. Accessories and appliances like sprays and heating irons further contribute to the daily mess, so invest in some organizers and use our quick fixes to make the bathroom the sanctuary it should be.

Raise your hand if you’re guilty of hoarding 100 bottles of soap, shampoo, and face wash in your shower! Not only do these items take up room and make the tub look messy, they promote mold growth! Eliminate everything you don’t need and consolidate bottles that are running low.


Empty the contents of your drawers and only keep what’s used daily. Everything else should be stored in a closet or other safe spot. Drawer trays will keep everything neat and let you quickly find what you need.

It’s easy to accumulate clutter on the countertop, but it isn’t pretty. Make sure to keep unattractive items and dental products off the vanity (your teeth will thank you, just read this).



Take advantage of the free space above the throne and set up an etagere. One of these organizers will allow you to stash toilet paper and towels in this often unused space.

DIY Bathroom Organizer

If you don’t have enough built-in storage to hide things away in, DIY a free standing organizer. This piece allows you to keep bathroom items in order and within reach.



Space under the vanity is useful, unless it’s a deep cavern of bottles that can’t been seen. Stack things upwards to make the most of this storage area and keep unsightly essentials concealed.

Toss Old Products

In addition to the copious amounts of bottles in the bath, check the dates and quality of any medications or makeup. Toss everything that’s expired and donate any unused cosmetics that you’re willing to part with. Makeup products list recommendations of how many months they should be in use, just check the label.
