Choose multiple stacking bins or two-tiered drawers to utilise vertical space. Shelves of multiple layers can be used to keep baskets, bins, buckets, mugs and see-through pouches. Drawer dividers can accommodate tiny items in bathrooms.
Acrylic drawer organisers are available in many sizes. They are stackable and can be placed in different configurations. The inside areas of cupboard doors can be used to store hooks, or acrylic stick-on bins and toothbrush holders. Look for small magnetic organisers and hooks to hold items or attach magnets at the back of items to keep them directly on doors.
Adhesive hooks are effective to organise bathroom cabinets. Fix them on the inside of doors to hang your hair dryer or brush to save space. Store hair products nearby for better access.

Bathroom organising tips
- Do not allow unnecessary thing to accumulate in the bathroom – declutter it regularly.
- When organising items, always keep them closer to where they are often used. For example, the hand soap, face wash or toothbrush, should be kept next to the wash basin.
- High-up wall-mounted storage is better for bathrooms that will be used by kids. Hooks or rings on the back of the bathroom door give extra space to hang clothes.
- Even window ledges offer storage space. If a bathroom has limited floor space, an easy solution is to add open shelves on the walls.
- Install a ladder in the space, especially if the space is behind the bathtub or toilet seat.
- Clear acrylic (see-through) containers are space-savers and can make your cabinets look organised. Stack same-size containers neatly, to keep your bathroom tidy.
- Add beautiful items such as potted plants, embroidered napkins, aromatic oils, or candles in bathrooms for the feel-good factor. Place decorative elements inside bathrooms to make the place beautiful.
- Once a bathroom is well-organised, it naturally feels comfortable and functional. Make it a habit to keep items in their proper places after use.
Is it better to roll or fold towels while keeping them in a bathroom?
Rolled towels occupy less space compared to folded ones. Placing rolled towels in a pyramid and creams on a wooden tray, gives the feeling of a spa-like ambience. To save more space for bulky towels, fold them in thirds, lengthwise, then into a rectangle. One of the easiest ways to eliminate mess is to make use of hooks instead of bars, to hang towels.
How do you organise toiletries in a small bathroom?
Go for a shallow tray, to arrange containers and toiletries kept in open space. This makes it easy to clean by lifting the entire tray and wipe the space. Glass containers and small jars are ideal for cotton swabs and other tiny items and can be kept on a tray or basket.
How far should you keep a toothbrush from toilet bowl?
While placing a toothbrush, give it some space away from the toilet bowl. It should be placed at least three ft away and should not touch other brushes. It should be kept upright and can be in an open cabinet with adequate air circulation for the bristles to get dry.
