For your smaller miscellaneous items such as cotton buds and nail clippers, store them in a tray on your countertop. Everyday facial products such as facial cleansers and toners can be placed in these trays as well. It keeps them looking neat and organized instead of a cluttered pile of items.

If you have any old jam jars lying around, repurpose it to store your cotton buds and cotton pads. Label it accordingly and place it on your bathroom countertop – it’ll give your bathroom an exquisite look.

Tip: Add an aromatic reed diffuser and/or a small potted plant on your bathroom countertop. It purifies and creates better air quality by removing various air pollutants.

Utilise Wall Space For Storage

For toiletries such as toothbrushes and toothpaste, mounting them onto the wall saves space and provides convenience. Use a toothbrush and toothpaste holder – the built-in toothpaste dispenser will help you dispense toothpaste without making a mess!

To keep your bar soap from slipping or glueing itself to the sink, you can place it on a soap wall holder. It improves reachability and saves you countertop space, especially if your bathroom doesn’t come with a countertop. 

Grooming Supplies

If blow-drying your hair is part of your daily habit, a smart move is to hang it on your wall with a hair dryer wall holder. It makes your hair dryer easily retrievable and keeps your wires untangled!

For your shavers and razors, store them in a basket and place them near the electrical plug. Extra razor blades should be kept away from the bathroom as the warm and moist bathroom environment would cause it to rust.

Bathroom Cabinets

Demarcate Drawer Space With Dividers

For your bathroom cabinet drawers, organize your toiletries and essentials with a drawer organizer. These organizers divide up your bathroom drawer space for the different essentials so you can easily locate them when you need it. 

Alternatively, upcycle old food containers or food tins (e.g mooncake tins) to make your own drawer divider. 

Create a Pull-Out Drawer System

If your bathroom cabinet only has shelves, consider using bins or organizers as a pull-out drawer. Corral your toiletries or cleaning supplies in these bins, label them and slide them into your cabinet shelf for easy access to items at the back of your shelf. 

You can also use a lazy susan as an alternative to a pull-out bin. Store your spare toiletries in it and simply turn to grab what you need. You’ll no longer lose products at the back of your cabinets.

For the higher shelves, you can store your extra toiletries such as shower gel refills and additional toothpaste tubes. For your lower shelves, you can consider storing your first-aid kit or toilet cleaning supplies.

Do not store medications in your bathroom – the warm and moist environment would reduce the potency of your medicines. Check out our StyleMag article on Storing & Organizing Your Medicines The Right Way At Home.

A simple rule of thumb is to keep your towel rail next to the sink or any bath fixtures in your bathroom. You’re usually soaking wet after a nice shower, so it’s ideal to have your towels within arm’s reach.

Towel Bars vs Towel Hooks

Hanging your towels on towel bars allows it to dry faster but it takes up more space as compared to a towel hook.

If you have a smaller bathroom that is shared among your family members, you can opt for towel hooks instead as they save a lot of space. Install multiple hooks so that nobody uses the wrong towel.

Tip: Towels are top breeding spots for germs, so make sure to wash your bath towels after 3 uses and your face towels after every use to get rid of dead skin cells and bacteria.

Store Bathing Supplies On Wall

If your shower area does not come with built-in shelves, wall holders or shelves come in extra handy to store and organize your bathing essentials such as shower gel and shampoo neatly. 

Tip: Only keep what is necessary for your daily bath routine to avoid building up clutter.

You can also make use of your wall space to hang up your children’s bath toys such as rubber duckies. Corral all their toys inside a mesh laundry bag and hang them from a wall hook. This method allows their bath toys to easily drip dry and reduces the clutter along the ledge of your bathtub.

It is important to keep things clean and hygienic around the toilet area to prevent bacteria from breeding. Store your weekly cleaning tools within reach without taking up any bathroom space with a wall holder that has it all!

Cleaning tip: If you are looking for a natural stain remover to replace your existing one, consider using vinegar or Coca-Cola. Pour them on the rims of the toilet bowl and let it sit for at least an hour before scrubbing it. It is advisable to clean your toilet at least once a week to prevent bacteria growth. 


With these tips in mind, start organizing every part of your bathroom today! Establish a bathroom decluttering session once in a while to get rid of unused toiletries that take up precious storage space in your bathroom.
