Bathroom Organization Ideas

One of the February tasks for of my Household Organization Diet, is to go through and organize all of the bathroom cupboards and closets in our home. I was quite surprised how many of you wrote that you do not actually have any cupboards in your bathroom.  I am a total bath person {and love all of my bath and beauty products} so I would definitely be in trouble without all of my cupboard storage space!  With all of that in mind though, I have tried to include some bathroom organization ideas at the end for those of you with and without cupboards!

Great bathroom storage and organization ideas!

Bathroom Organization Supplies: 
  • microfiber cloth
  • spray bottle with 1:1 mixture of vinegar and water
  • garbage {and recycling} bags
  • storage bins and baskets.  Look around the house and see what you can find!

To Do:

  • Remove EVERYTHING from the cupboards and/or closet.  **NOTE: Make sure you take out only what you can put back in less than 30 minutes {or whatever time you have designated for yourself}.  There is nothing worse than running out of time with half of your bathroom supplies still laying out on the floor!
  • Wipe down the insides and outsides of the cupboards.    
  • Go through items and toss {or recycle} anything that is expired, smells bad, or that you do not use and love.  As always, be ruthless here!  If you are short on space, make sure you avoid duplicate items {i.e. if you have 2 or 3 bottles of shampoo, pick one and store the remaining bottles in another area of your home that you may have more storage space}. 
  • Group remaining items into categories. You may want to group by person or by function – whatever works for you!
  • Use bins, pull out drawers, or trays to hold similar items in cupboards, closets or shelves.

  • Use drawer organizers to keep smaller items sorted and easy to find. You can find a lot of inexpensive options at the dollar store to mix and match sizes to fit your space. Office supply holders {such as the stackable organizers in the first photo} or cutlery organizers work well too.

  • Utilize the inside of cupboard doors for storage.   Use small hooks to hold towels {or cleaning cloths!} or install a small wire shelf.  I like to have the toothbrushes stored out of sight so I mounted our DIY Brush and Wash station to the inside cupboard in the kids’ bathroom using Command strips.

  • Store first aid supplies in one location.  I created this “Boo Boo Box” for ours and it is easily portable.  Medication needs to be stored in a dry, cool place that is away from moisture so the bathroom is definitely not the best place for it. {you can find my medicine cabinet here

  • If you do not have any built in cabinets in the bathroom, install some wall shelves, wall mounted towel holders, or purchase a small shelving unit for extra storage.   Add some bins to keep your items out of sight!

    Wow, so many great pictures and such great ideas! Thanks a lot for sharing and motivating me – I’m going through a home renovation at the moment I’m feeling a little down from all the work that has to be done. I guess thinking of the results really helps!
