Bathrooms can be tricky spaces to keep clutter-free. Use these seven design secrets to keep yours clean — a place for everything and everything in its place!

It’s happened. Your bathroom has reached the point where things are everywhere.

And I mean everywhere.

You can’t find anything you need and your medicine cabinet is a disaster. You need a bathroom intervention ASAP!

Before you shut the door to the bathroom and wish you could make the mess go away, take a deep breath. There’s a way through this, I promise!

Here, gain some insight on what steps to take to create a functional and stylish bathroom. Then, before you know it, the clutter will disappear, and only the essentials will remain!

1. Medicine Cabinet Strategy

The medicine cabinet makes it far too simple to stash things away. But the problem is it can quickly become messy with too many products.

You know how it is. You stack too many products close together. Then, you try to take something out, and another item comes crashing down.

Ugh, that’s so annoying when that happens!

But there’s a solution to this messy madness.

One solution is to keep things organized by lining them up by size. You can also arrange products by how frequently you use them. For example, place the items you use daily on the most accessible shelf and in front of everything else.

If you still find you have too many lotions, medicine, and the like in your cabinet, go through everything. You’ll likely discover that you don’t use it all. Plus, there are some things you can store somewhere else.

2. Unpackage Products to Store Them

Don’t allow product packaging to take up the space in your bathroom. It’s easy not to unpackage things and assume you’ll make time to do it later. But then, it never happens.

Thankfully, you can take half an hour or less to take things out of their packaging. So, instead of keeping all the cotton balls in the original paper box, take them out. Next, store them all together, such as in a single glass jar.

Using apothecary jars will look nice, and they’ll store items that would otherwise take up a lot of space.

3. Self-Adhesive Organizers on the Wall

Having shelves in your bathroom is excellent. But the problem is installing them can cause damage to your walls. Luckily, there’s another solution to organizing things on your walls.

Instead of installing shelves, consider having removable adhesive organizers on the wall.

Clear, attractive organizers will look great on the wall in your bathroom. And, having removable shelves is ideal because it won’t damage the walls.

Do check how much weight the shelves can hold, though. Likely, you can’t weigh them down a lot, so keep that in mind.

Also, it might be better to stick with lightweight items that won’t make a mess if the shelf should come off the wall.

4. Countertop Essentials

Nothing’s more annoying than a cluttered countertop in your bathroom. It becomes a real eyesore. And just like a messy medicine cabinet, it’s hard to find what you need.

To solve this, keep only the essentials out and group certain items. You’ll be following the same organizing system as your medicine cabinet.

Another idea is to get an accessories tray. On the tray, display the essentials like your facial lotion. Having a tray will spruce up your counter’s appearance and make it a cinch to find what you need.

5. Ladder for Towels

Towels are more bathroom essentials that, unfortunately, eat up the room. You can’t do without them, but they take up valuable shelving space you could use for toilet paper and other items!

It’s time to think outside the box if you don’t want to store extra towels in your bathroom. One solution is to prop up a ladder against the wall. Its steps (assuming they’re not too wide) are perfect for hanging towels on.

You can go with a vintage wooden ladder or get something more modern like a steel ladder. Use it to hang up more than one towel and keep things looking nice and tidy.

6. Magnet Organizers

Do you feel like doing a DIY project?

Even if you don’t, this is a fun one to try. I promise!

This project is all about using magnets to stash more belongings. To start, first, you’ll need some small steel strips. Then, once you have a few, attach them inside a cabinet or behind the door.

Now it’s time to get out your magnets. Before putting them on the steel, affix them to small plastic containers and hooks.

Using plastic containers, you can store things like hair ties, q-tips, and even eye drops.

See, I told you this is a fun and quick project that’ll result in a well-organized space!

7. Drawer Organizers

Don’t forget about your drawers!

It’s way too easy to store everything under the sun in drawers. Since clutter tends to pile up quickly, get some organizers to keep things in place.

Before getting organizers, though, measure the size of the items you want in your drawer. If it’s hair products, for example, you need enough space to store them. So, look for organizers that will hold the items you need.

It’ll be so much easier to open your drawer and find what you’re looking for. Not only will it simplify things, but you’ll get out the door a lot faster!


These bathroom design secrets are just that — the secret to getting your bathroom back in order.

After organizing everything, stay on top of it so that it won’t get overtaken again.

I know, easier said than done, right?

Try to stick to only keeping the essentials to prevent clutter. If you have a hard time deciding, take stock of what you use regularly.

As for the items you don’t use, give them to a friend and avoid buying things you know you won’t use.

An organized bathroom can inspire you to get more things organized in your apartment. If that happens, go with it! Pretty soon, you’ll be a pro at managing all your interiors!
