Thank you for showing a real bathroom. A lot of the bathroom makeovers and such seem to have a bathroom that no one actually uses. Who doesn’t keep their toothbrush on their counter next to their sink? Yours looks nice and neat, but still real, so it seems obtainable and not just a pinterest dream.

3. Everything needs a home of its own. This means there should be no “stand alone” items that don't have a drawer/bin/or container to call home. I would say there are a few exceptions to this rule (like a soap dispenser or cool perfume bottle you like to keep out for looks), but you really want to make sure everything has a contained space to live in and this will really help with counter clutter. For me, anything I want to keep on my counter has to fit in the 3-drawer makeup holder or metal basket next to the sink. Otherwise, it has to find a new home elsewhere. This step is where those plastic dividers and drawer bins come in handy to separate and keep each category visible (and only one layer deep) within your drawers. They make bigger systems that fit in the space under your sink, and I really like the slide-out feature of this one.

5. Get items off the counter. This is where a little bit of wall space can save the day. I made this copper cup organizer specifically to keep things that are usually on my counter up and out of the way, but still within arms reach. You can use shelving or other pre-made hanging organizers to achieve the same results, so you don't have to make this part a DIY project unless you want to.

Makes me wish my student dorm bathroom had even a hint of a shelf, cupboard, or surface! Your bathroom is so beautiful. At the moment I solve my own bathroom problems with wall mounted (sucker fix) hanging baskets. It’s not the prettiest of solutions, but it works.

Central bathroom cabinets can be fitted with roll-out wire trays, the kind used in kitchens. One contains a first-aid kit and miscellaneous toiletries. A pair of hooks fastened to the inside of the doors hold a hair dryer and a flat iron. In the adjacent cabinet, a second sliding track holds the bathroom’s trash can.

Vintage planters are a playful spin on more traditional bathroom accessories. Displayed on a metal-and-glass table, they hold bottles of shampoo and liquid soap, sponges, bar soap, and hand towels. Tuck a new toothbrush, soap, and a washcloth into a planter and put it in the bathroom cupboard — you’ll have the perfect guest package ready at a moment’s notice.

An extra seat in the bathroom is always welcome, even though moist conditions may limit appropriate options. Try draping a wooden folding chair with a thick cotton-terry slipcover, and suddenly you have an inviting perch for a manicure, a blow-dry, or bathroom accessories.

Thanks for all of these tips, Laura! I’m really struggling to organize my bathroom and keep it in check right now. I’m lucky because there is a huge, vintage claw foot tub in my little rental, but it takes up 80% of the bathroom and there’s hardly room for anything else. A key to getting it organized is having the space to put things, so I’m working on finding some unique solutions. Your copper cups are great and I still want to give them a try!

1. Clean out your junk. I mean it. This is actually my favorite part of organization—the throwing away part! Of course, you can find new homes for any unwanted items that are still in good condition (what friend doesn't like looking through another friend's “giveaway pile” and getting a better hairdryer than the one they have?), but the goal here is to remove all the stuff that you don't use on a regular basis. That nail polish you thought would be cool but makes your skin look green? It's gone. The curling iron that never seems to get hot enough (and your hair won't hold curls anyway)? It's outta here. That eyeshadow from 2007 that makes your eyelids puff up (but it was so expensive so you kept it)? Bye-bye. I know you may not believe me, but you don't need eight kinds of body lotion. Pick one and go with it. You can see that I don't have a giant vanity space, but I got rid of four grocery bags worth of stuff. FOUR BAGS. You should have seen my husband's eyes when I showed him how much I had removed. They were as big as dinner plates. Very big (but very proud of me) dinner plates. There will probably also be a lot of items that you are keeping, but simply need to move to a more appropriate spot elsewhere in your house (like your medicine cabinet or cleaning supplies shelf). Leave everything you are keeping on the floor and clean and wipe out each drawer for probably the first time since you moved in. Ahh, feels better already.

Hey Laura! I really, really don’t want this to come off as overly critical, so I hope it doesn’t sound that way. But you should know that storing makeup in hot, humid climates (ahem, bathrooms, especially after a warm/steamy shower) dramatically shortens their shelf life. Makeup, like anything else, goes bad after a while, caused by bacteria that it picks up from your skin and its surroundings. Obviously bacteria LOVES warm + wet, so it will thrive in those conditions. You might want to consider keeping your products in a cooler, drier place (like your bedroom). Anyway, awesome job on the organization. Again, I hope I don’t come off as rude at all, but makeup can be pricey and I’m all for extending the longevity of investment items as long as possible. xoxo

Yes yes yes! I love organization and I love my girly getting ready tools, so naturally they must come together at some point. It’s super important to gather things together, rather than having them floating around with no defined space. It’s obviously a plus if the container that the items are gathered in are organized too, but even just gathering them is a great first step and looks organized from the outside.
