12 DIY Organization Hacks For Your Bathroom

Use our 12 do-it-yourself tips to organize your bathroom – no matter the size.

Unfortunately, there's no magic wand you can wave to organize your bathroom and keep it clutter-free.

So while the bathroom might always be a little chaotic – it is a room we all have to use every day – these organization ideas will hopefully help you keep it a little tidier.

How to organize large or master bathrooms

  1. Move a bookshelf into the bathroom to allow extra room for mixing decorative accents with everyday, useful items
  2. Lean a wooden ladder against the wall and attach with brackets. Add wider pieces of wood to the steps for additional shelf space
  3. Add a travel chest or trunk for a rustic accent piece that doubles as a useful place to store towels and linens
  4. If space allows, consider incorporating a cushioned storage bench for added comfort
  5. Repurpose a dresser, and assign a drawer to each family member to store their bathroom-related belongings

How to organize small bathrooms

  1. Designate one basket for storing items you use every day. Keep it in the linen closet or under the sink for easy access
  2. Hang a mirror on the back of the bathroom door or inside the medicine cabinet to create an additional space another person can use
  3. Purchase over-the-toilet shelving

Organization for all spaces

  1. Use apothecary or Mason jars to store cotton balls and other items. They’re decorative and also show you when supplies are low
  2. Organize towels by color, size and type. If you’re crunched for space, store extras in a guest room closet or on a shelf in the linen closet
  3. If you have an especially busy bathroom, create a family schedule so everyone can use the bathroom in harmony
  4. Purchase or make a decorative toilet paper holder for your rolls to add storage and design
