5 Tips for Bathroom Organization Made Simple

The following is a guest post about bathroom organization made simple from regular contributor, Morgan from Morganize with Me.

An area often prone to attracting extra and unwanted clutter, is our bathrooms. Whether you have adequate space or you are short on space, some simple bathroom organization steps can significantly help when it comes to keeping things in order.

I’ll walk you though my tips by showing you a tour of our master bath. This bathroom has plenty of space, and it even boasts a large-sized linen closet, however the builder grade cabinets offer very little “functional organizational” space. To keep things in order, I use creative solutions and keep only the essentials.

5 Tips: Bathroom Organization (Made Simple)

Tip #1: Define the use of the storage areas in your bathroom(s).

Designate what goes where, like I did with our linen closet. Our linen closet is to the immediate left (in the picture below) and provides ample storage. (Which could become a clutter magnet if we choose to not be intentional with what we put in there!)

Tip #2: Install hooks to hold and store things. I placed these two hooks right next to our shower, as opposed to using the traditional towel bar on the wall.

Tip #3: Add a clock to help you stay on time!

Note from Laura: Yes! Adding a clock to my bathroom was a game changer for me!

Tip #4: Use containers to organize things, whether on counters or in drawers.

Due to the fact that our drawers are teeny tiny, I do put more items on our counters. Always think first about functionality and then about what looks pretty. When things are easier for you to maintain, you will naturally stay more organized!

Tip #5: Capitalize on the vertical space in your cabinets.

Our cabinets, like I mentioned, are builder grade and while they are spacious in size they are limited in functionality. (A perfect example of too deep and too wide.)

This amount of space could quickly become overstuffed and disorganized. To avoid this, I use stacking bins for the items I don’t use as frequently and I added small hooks for my hair dryer and mirror. These two small and easy fixes, make a big difference!

    Wow Morgan – I think your bathroom is larger than our bedroom!

    In our larger bathroom we have a cabinet under the sink which consists of a 2 ft wide space by the depth of the sink and about 2.5 feet high. There is a drawer under the cabinet. We have no counter space and the sink itself is undersized – we had a choice of ONE when we went to replace it, I am not even sure it can ever be replaced again. We cannot put in anything larger without getting rid of the toilet bowl or the bathtub (only tub/shower in the house). The room is so small that when we put in a new roll of toilet paper it touches us when seated. We cannot put in an “over john” as the john is in front of the window and would block it. When we moved in there was no electric outlets in the bathroom – to have same put in we had to have the light moved to an odd angle.

    Then again, there is not much we find that needs to be in the bathroom – I do not use makeup. Husband has his razor and the like in the drawer. We keep a plastic shoe box, sans lid, with our first aid supplies. There are 2 spare rolls of toilet paper. A small electric fan for hot weather as the ac does not get in there with the door closed.

    There is a small set in the wall medicine cabinet which holds some items that would normally be in same.

    Our other bathroom is half bath downstairs, and is about 1/2 the size of this one as it does not have a tub (or shower).

      Sounds like you have done a great job with being creative with your space! Sometimes creativity is the best approach and can make up for fixed elements of design.

    I have been using a clock in my bathroom for a long time now, it is a lifesaver for me! I am loving those towel hooks I might grab a few for our master bath, I’m tired of hanging the towels on the shower. It looks too messy for me.

      Clocks are such a help and the hooks I found at Target, they work great!
