11 Bathroom Storage Ideas to Help You Get Organized

It’s the one room in our home where we go to get clean, but we have a tendency to let clutter and debris pile up in our bathroom until it feels downright dirty.

If you struggle to keep your cosmetics and toiletries in their rightful place, read on. 

Today, we’re sharing ten creative bathroom storage ideas to help you turn this space back into the oasis it was meant to be.

1. Use Cabinet Doors as Storage

Does your bathroom vanity have cabinet doors? If so, open them up and take a look at that valuable storage space that’s hidden neatly out of sight!

Simple over-the-door organizers are minimalistic, while command hooks also look great. Make sure whatever items you store here are lightweight and won’t damage the door as you open and close it. This is a great place to stash cotton swabs, Q-tips, extra washcloths, and similar powder room necessities!

Don’t restrict yourself to the bathroom vanity. See how we added out-of-the-way storage on the inside of the tub motor access door in one bathroom project[1].

2. Build an Etagere

You don’t have to remodel your bathroom to make it look totally different with a few new accessories. 

Etagere is a fancy French word for a piece of furniture that features a series of open shelves. It’s a great way to add a ton of storage without having to drill into your walls for custom cabinetry. 

Thanks to the explosion of modern farmhouse style, most of the ones you’ll find in catalogs today have black metal frames and reclaimed barnwood shelves. [2]

Install one near your bathtub to stash soaking salts, candles, and extra towels!

3. Maximize a Bar Stool

Many single-sided bathrooms have an awkward space between the commode and the sink. It’s not big enough for a shelf, but it could assist your storage and organization efforts thanks to one handy resource: the barstool.
