Keeping an orderly bathroom is much easier when you’ve chosen storage locations for your bath and beauty essentials. Floating or open shelves add a modern touch over traditional cabinetry. Everyday toiletries could be kept on them — including lotions, toothbrushes, shaving creams and towels. Over-the-toilet and corner shelves also make great use of bare wall space. However, if you choose to store items above the commode, it’s best to get in the habit of keeping the toilet cover closed. This prevents toiletries from falling inside and minimizes contamination. Avoid storing medications on open shelving for bathroom guests to see.

The under-sink area is the ideal spot for products that aren’t frequently used. It’s best to keep the first-aid kit and cleaning supplies tucked behind cabinet doors. Gather cleaners and tools in a small caddy or two-tiered organizer that doubles on storage to maximize space. You may also want to keep a bulky wastebasket out of sight by attaching it to the cabinet door underneath the vanity.

Whether your bathroom is big or small, these savvy storage ideas could help you add space and stay organized. For more ways on how to designate storage locations for items, see the accompanying resource.
