In case your shower doesn't have built-in shelves, a hanging organizer means soaps and shampoos aren't precariously perched on the edge of the bathtub or windowsill. Bonus: No more mildew accumulation in the bottles' foundations to scrub away.
Traditional cabinets — bypass and go for a more informal approach. Attempt a ladder, particularly one with tray-like shelves, to optimize space above your toilet. Jute baskets supply storage, while the open shelves make the ladder a perfect area for a sprawling houseplant.#s#
A laundry lingerie bag doubles as the best receptacle for your kids' foam alphabet letters, rubber ducks and mermaid dolls. Just hang the bag from a suction cup hook somewhere in the shower stall so the toys can drip dry.
The jute basket that simply does not fit in your bathroom cabinet might have a motive elsewhere — like on the walls. Hang two above your toilet to hold hide toilet paper in a convenient place and discreetly rolled up towels.
In the event that you are running low on storage space — and also a cupboard is out of the question — consider hanging little storage units, like mason jars, from the walls to corral make-up brushes, cotton balls and toothbrushes. Fixed to a slab of wood that is perfectly distressed, mason jars offer a shabby chic fix.
Let your towels and delicates dry — without being on display. Install an affordable blend shower-curtain rod and towel bar, and items can drip-dry into your tub. (We mounted ours backward, so the towels hang behind the curtain.)
Discard expired and fresh bulky packaging along with things. Leave regular essentials — toothbrushes — on the counter. Outfit cupboards with handy holders, such as a back-of-the-door rack.
Rather than storing cleaning products, extra shampoos and lotions by lining them up (this creates unsightly jumble!) try including a lazy Susan to your bathroom cabinet. Just rotate around it whenever you need to get to something special, without crashing over every other product in sight.
Keep only hair accessories that still work (so not those miserable, stretched out ponytail holders). Rein in fasteners with repurposed office supplies: A ring clip corrals hair bands; a paperclip holder minds pins. Pitch expired medicines, baskets of too many candles and potpourri, which take up space and simply gather dust
Limit your top drawers to products you use several times a week, if not daily. (Stash special-occasion make-up in an out of the way bag.) Drawer dividers further simplify the morning makeup investigation. Short on cupboard or drawer space? An over-the-door shoe caddy will keep brushes lotions and the like within easy reach.
