(un)Spring Cleaning: 5 Tips for Organizing Your Bathroom

Rockport Tenant Organizing Her Bathroom Drawers Maintaining a bathroom can be quite difficult for most Rockport renters. Not only is an organized bathroom easier to keep in shape; it also helps your morning routine. Clutter can produce feelings of anxiety or frustration. A bathroom that is tidy, though, will negate those feelings and promote a more relaxed environment. But, in order to get all the perks that come with an organized bathroom, you have to put the work in! Here are a few ways you can easily organize your bathroom.


The first step to an organized bathroom is to get rid of all the clutter that you can find. A good number of people won’t even know it, but they have too many things inside their own bathrooms. It’s best to look through all of your cabinets, drawers, and shelves so that you are able to keep track of all your items and decide which ones are no longer useful. Anything expired, of course, should immediately be tossed into the trash. Look for items that go together and take stock. Throw out any items that are duplicated, but still weren’t used in the past year. Afterward, you may start organizing the items that you actually want to keep.

Categorize to Organize

After decluttering, you can start categorizing your items. Once you’ve done this, organizing will be a walk in the park. If the only person that uses the bathroom is you, then you can simply categorize items according to your routine. For example, you may want to set up a shelf, bin, or drawer for your morning routine and then another for the evening routine. But if the bathroom is used by other people, you can give each of them a caddy for their personal items. Then, the caddies can be mounted onto a shelf or cabinet.

Invest in Clear Storage Containers

A bathroom becomes disorganized when things aren’t where they are supposed to be. So that things are easy to spot, invest in some clear storage containers. Your items, which are already categorized, can be placed in these containers. Shallow drawer organizers can be great for keeping toothbrushes, makeup, and other small items neat. To provide organization for shelves and cabinets, you can utilize taller containers to divide certain items.

A Place for Everything

As you re-organize your bathroom, make it a point to designate a place for each of your items. In doing so, you can avoid going back to clutter. One good practice is to keep things off of the bathroom counter. Instead, you can utilize bins, drawers, and baskets. Don’t underestimate the practice of labeling storage containers — it works wonders for keeping track of where things are!

Use Your Space Effectively

Bathrooms are often cluttered because they are small. Most bathrooms are too small to have enough space to work with, making it very difficult for organizing belongings. More often than not, though, is that there is usually that one small unused space to work with to keep your bathroom tidy. Hooks behind doors, storage containers attached to the cabinet doors, and the space above the toilet are all potential storage areas. These are some spaces that you can capitalize on to make your bathroom clean and organized.
