1. Labeled storage.
This might seem like a daunting task, but it’s seriously helpful. And the cool thing is that, yes, while you can use a label maker for your organizational needs.
But why do that when you can embroider small baskets like shown in the photograph above? The results are beautiful and personalized.
2. Mason jars.
Mason jars are great for storage! You can turn them into mini hanging storage units.These are perfect for storing tiny objects like cotton balls or makeup brushes. For the DIY tutorial, check out Apartment Therapy!
3. Kitchen organizers.
Hanging rod based kitchen organizers are perfect for your bathroom as well. The stainless steel also looks very modern. The great thing about using kitchen organizers is you can customize it how you need it.
4. Shelf above the door.
Some of us might have high ceilings which leaves some extra space above the bathroom door. If that’s the case you can add a shelf there to store extra toiletries.
5. Towel nook.
Why would you devote an entire closet to your towels when you can just put it in a towel nook. This is a great idea if you’d like to creatively display your towels.
6. Shoe Organizers.
So, you might be in a predicament where you don’t really have room to add shelves, but you really need shelves.Well, one solution could be to use a shoe organizer! It hangs on the back of the door, so it’s also non-destructive and is safe for apartment use.
7. Magnetic spice rack.
If you take a metal sheet and adhere it to the back of your medicine cabinet or you can paint it with a magnetic primer… you can actually use magnetic spice racks inside your cabinet to help organize your tiny objects that tend to periodically disappear. The cool thing about this too, is that you can move around the shelves, so you can rearrange things depending on the size of the object you’re storing.
8. Lazy Susans.
They’re not just for the kitchen anymore. These are great for putting inside your vanity to help keep everything together in there.
9. Stick-on storage.
These are kind of like those high school locker organizers, but modified for bathroom use. These stick inside your vanity mirror and can hold your toothbrush, nail polish and much more.
10. Cord control.
Anything with a cord in your bathroom gets in the way at one point in time or another. Even when you wrap the cord around around your flat iron, that cord still mysteriously gets in the way. Using a small shower caddy or a modified shoe organizer can solve the problem.
No one likes to live in chaos, that’s why organizing the home is so important. Aside from the fact when you’re organized you know where things are, it’s also uplifting for your mood. Clutter can bring on unwanted stress, and you might not even know it!
