10 Organization Ideas For Small Bathrooms
PART 1: CREATE MORE STORAGE SPACE
1) Install bathroom shelves
Have you ever considered some floating shelves in your bathroom? Shelves can help you to make the most of the vertical space, and it can turn out to be a stylish approach to storage! This is easily one of the best ideas for a small bathroom organization and thankfully, it fits absolutely any bathroom.
2) Create under-sink storage
Since we’re talking about a small bathroom, under sink storage is a must. You can add some fancy shelves underneath or you can go even further and install some mini drawers. No matter what you opt for, this is the quickest organization idea for small bathrooms and it will also hide a lot of eyesores.
3) Add some over the toilet storage
As I mentioned above, storage on the walls in a small bathroom is more than necessary… But most people forget about the valuable space above the toilet. You can use this space too, by adding a small shelf with toilet paper and towels.
4) A small chair can work as well
If you have a really small bathroom and don’t have enough space for extra storage, buy a multipurpose stool in a pretty color and put it in a corner. Use it to store small towels or similar items on it, and you can also add a box under it. It is not ideal, of course, but it’s still a way to add some levels of storage.
5) Use the space around your bathtub
No matter if you have a bathtub or a shower, there is some space there you can use to store shower gels and soaps. The simplest way is to add a leveled metal storage to the corner of your shower or bath, like this:

6) Roll those towels!
If space doesn’t allow it, how do you store fresh towels? You can do that by getting some baskets and placing them in a corner. Then, roll the towels and place them inside. It is both useful and good looking!
7) Install a hairdryer holder
If you add some doors under the sink to create a small cupboard, you can use those doors to hand the hairdryer. There are several approaches to this, but I use a standard small basket with a hanger on it, like this:
8) Use mason jars!
I used to have so many small things to store in the bathroom, that sometimes I would feel like I will never find the end of it… I discovered that the best organization idea for small bathrooms is to use mason jars as organizers. You can store your toothpaste, toothbrush, makeup stuff, and many more things in these simple glass jars and everything looks much tidier + stays a lot cleaner!
9) Hang mirrors to create an illusion of bigger space
Since we’re discussing the design and storage of a small space, you should be careful not to make it look cluttered. And in my opinion, the best way to create the illusion of a bigger space is by hanging a mirror. Use the biggest mirror you can, so that the light will reflect in your small bathroom and create the impression of a lot larger space. Make sure you opt for a mirror with hidden storage for extra space!
10) Hang stuff on the door
Probably the simplest of organization ideas for small bathrooms – adding hooks or holders straight to your bathroom door! This place is excellent for your bathrobe or even towels so you can easily maximize the storage area with this!
If you don’t want to drill holes into your door, you can get an over the door hanging rack, like this:
And that’s it! This is how you can keep a small bathroom neat and organized. You can implement some of these tips right away – after all, organizing a small bathroom is all about using your creativity.
