Small Bathroom Organizing Ideas

Let’s face it, a lot of our personal care items need to be kept in the bathroom, whether we like it or not. What if I told you, it’s possible to have a beautiful bathroom and create enough storage space with the small area you have.

My apartment is so small (including bathrooms) that I can use lots of these ideas and I hope this roundup encourages you to optimize the space you have!

Here are some great small bathroom organizing ideas to help you maximize storage in your bathroom!

We moved into our new apartment a little over a year ago and of course, we are redecorating and organizing a lot of rooms in our home, in an effort to have things be more organized and tidy looking.

One room in particular that I’ve been searching over the internet for ideas and inspiration for is our tiny master bathroom! I have a cozy little bathroom for a master bath.

There’s not a lot of room and not a lot of storage. It’s starting to look and feel very cramped. So I’ve been looking on Pinterest and other sources for some Small Bathroom Organizing Ideas and thought I’d share a few with you today.

Organizing a Small Bathroom

Keeping a small bathroom organized and clean is among the most challenging things to do. There are so many things to store in a bathroom (especially when most of them are small and slippery). Since you use those items so often, it’s so easy to end up with messy, cluttered spaces that don’t function as they should.

Starting each day this way isn’t a good pleasant at all.

The first thing that should be done is to declutter very thoroughly and bring order to a disorganized bathroom, making sure that every single item has a designated spot.

I know the lack of space makes things especially challenging since it affects everything from where to keep your toothbrush to how and where to store those extra towels and toilet paper rolls.

A few quick bathroom organization tips to help:

  • Keep storage easy to access. In order to keep your small bathroom organized, make sure your storage solutions are accessible so you can use them on a daily basis.
  • What you don’t see, you don’t care. Since your bathroom is small, you’ll want as little visual clutter as possible. So try to keep visible storage solutions at a minimum. If that’s not possible, consider using storage behind a door/in a cabinet, finding storage that is the same color as your bathroom walls, or the same color as the surface it’s sitting on.
  • Creativity is the limit. You don’t need to buy expensive storage, You could consider, baskets, bins, decorative buckets or any not, making them yourself or upcycling boxes.
