Do you ever feel like the lotions and potions on your bathroom counter – or those in the cabinet for that matter – seem to spontaneously multiply?
We know the feeling all too well. A recent study found that women own, on average, 35 to 40 make-up products at any given time, but only regularly use five (or less!) of them. And that number doesn’t even include things like creams, foot scrubs, shampoo… yikes! So, here are seven bathroom organizing ideas to calm the clutter…
1. The open storage
Loo rolls, towels, toiletries, bath toys – a three-tier shelving unit is a clutter buster’s dream. And you can always find some wall space in a bathroom to put one up.
2. The shower caddy
Free up the shower floor by storing shower gels and sponges on shelves and hooks. It will also make cleaning the shower a whole lot easier.
3. The fun & quirky toothbrush holder
Looking for a novel way to store your kids’ toothbrushes? Swap a dull brush cup for a cool animal one – the kids might even want to put things away now. Plus, it can double up as a decor item.

4. The throw-it-all-in bathroom basket
Lightweight and easy to move around, handy baskets offer an impressive amount of storage, as well as a stylish colour update. Why not get each family member a similar basket in a different colour? Genius!
5. The laundry bag
A big-family essential that seems to fill up far too quickly – opt for a soft but spacious laundry bag with handles so it can easily be dragged around and packed away when necessary.
6. A mirror organiser
This Scandi Quiet Mirror, R699 from @Home, includes a useful storage dish at the bottom to help corral make-up or keep your accessories all in one place.
If you’re lucky enough to have a bigger bathroom, standing mirror organisers are also a fantastic choice.

7. The over-the-door storage unit
A row of hooks for damp towels and other bathroom essentials (like your favourite fluffy robe). You can also hang it up on the inside of your bathroom cupboard door to hold bits and bobs – and everything will be conveniently out of sight!
