How to Organize a Small Bathroom

Whether you are in a tight apartment in the city or a cozy home in the suburbs, living with a small bathroom can be challenging. Between morning showers and nightly grooming routines, bathrooms are one of the hubs of any home. With multiple people getting ready at the same time, makeup, shower products, linens, toiletries and much more, bathrooms can quickly run out of space.

Remodeling your bathroom to gain more space is difficult or even impossible depending on your budget and living situation. Our tips and tricks to maximize space in a small bathroom can save you space, boost the aesthetics of your bathroom, all without breaking the bank.

Use Adhesive Hooks to keep daily tools within reach

When people are wondering how to organize a small bathroom, they often miss opportunities to create more storage. Styling tools such as hair dryers, curling irons, and straighteners take up a lot of space in your cabinets and drawers. Using adhesive hooks allows you to utilize behind the door storage in your cabinets, which is often neglected.

Hang Shelves for linens and everyday products

Utilizing vertical space is a must in any room that is short on space. Installing shelves for a small bathroom is easy to create additional storage space in your small bathroom. For an upscale look, we suggest opting for solid wood shelving. Choosing a contrasting finish on your shelves can help bring the eye up, creating the illusion of a larger space. Outfit the shelves with wicker or cubed canvas storage bins for extra storage space for toiletries, linens, and more. For a cohesive look, pick storage bins that coordinate with your bathroom’s existing color scheme.

Add a Storage Tower for additional storage space

When looking to organize your small bathroom, it’s important that you create as much storage space as possible. Implementing a small bathroom storage tower is an easy and aesthetically pleasing way to increase storage space. Bathroom organizing towers instantly add tiered storage space that wasn’t available before. The shelves on the tower are ideal for storing towels, tolitiers, makeup products, toilet paper, or cleaning supplies.. To keep the bathroom organizer tower looking organized, incorporate storage cubes to house your products and toiletries to keep your small bathroom organized.

Add a hanging organizer in your shower

Between soaps, shampoos, conditioners, face washes, and other products, a small shower can quickly feel cramped with products, especially if you share the shower. Wire shower organizers create additional room for all your products, while still keeping them within reach at all times.

Add a Mirror with a medicine cabinet

If you have the ability to, adding a mirror with storage is a must in a small bathroom. Medicine cabinets are a great place to store small items such as medicine and vitamin bottles, tooth paste, fragrances, and more, allowing you to free up your countertop.

Add tiered towel racks

Imagine running late for the morning and rushing out the shower and reaching for your towel, and finding that it is still damp from the day before. If you live with a small bathroom, odds are that you have experienced this problem; especially if you share that bathroom with someone else. Many small bathrooms, particularly in apartments, only come with one small towel hook or rack. Upgrading to a tiered towel rack will provide enough space to fully dry more than one tower and look good.

ILiving with a tight bathroom can be a stressful and irritating experience for anyone, especially if it’s not only you using it. To get the most out of your bathroom, follow our simple small bathroom organization tips. Check out our website for additional advice for organizing rooms in your home.
