The bathroom is one of the busiest rooms in the house, especially in the morning. Contain the clutter and help everyone find what they need quickly so you all can get out the door. We found six great options for busy families to help maintain morning sanity at the sink.
In a perfect world, we would each have our own spacious bathroom. There would be more than enough storage space, clean towels would always be within reach and getting ready in the morning would be a breeze. Since this isn’t usually the case, most of us need some help in organizing the bathroom chaos. Whether you have a teenager who hoards beauty products or a little one just learning to brush his teeth, we’ve got you covered.
This modern chrome roll-out under-sink organizer ($81) is a great option for utilizing that area under the sink that sometimes goes to waste. Made of shiny chrome and steel, this versatile organizer includes a removable plastic liner for the top drawer making cleanup a cinch. With a reversible design, you can use this on the left or right side of your bathroom cabinet.
Tiskets and taskets
We love these modern weave round baskets ($14 each) for storing bathroom items in style. The sturdy baskets are made from tightly handwoven rattan peel and stained to bring out their natural beauty. Whether for your teenager to store her makeup or your tiny tot to store his toothbrush, these baskets will not only look trendy but help you stay organized. You may even buy a few for yourself.
Sometimes storage can be both functional and decorative. The Benchwright ladder floor storage unit ($249) would be a standout piece in any bathroom. It has the look of an antique with the sturdiness of the modern era. The ladder-style shelf has a hand-distressed finish that gives it the character of a family heirloom piece. Each of the four shelves is slightly deeper than the one above and includes a fabric-lined wire bin for storing anything from bath towels and linens to makeup items and bubble bath.
Tower of towels
Does your family go through towels faster than you can wash them? The Reserve Deluxe storage tower ($300) boasts lots of storage space, both behind glass and hidden away. The dark wood finish and glass doors add a warm, classic look to any bathroom area. Store your boring towels and other items on the three shelves that are hidden, and display your glass perfume bottles and good-for-company towels behind the glass. This piece gives you a great amount of storage in a small amount of floor space.
Stack ’em up
Is your space at a premium? Sometimes the only space you can squeeze out of your bathroom is inside the medicine cabinet or in your drawers. The Stack and Slide bin set ($12) is made of clear plastic, helping you organize your toiletries and making it easy to see what’s inside. Everything from toothbrushes and floss to makeup items will fit in these bins, which stack for extra storage space. The small bin slides back and forth on top of the large bin for easy access. Buy several sets and use them in your drawers or medicine cabinet shelves and soon you will be a model of organization.
On the wall
Sometimes you have to be creative when searching for bathroom storage space. This arch top wall cabinet ($100) is a great way to use your wall space efficiently and gain more storage area. With three cubbies and an adjustable shelf, you have room for extra washcloths and any other supplies that need a home. The added towel bar at the bottom lets this piece do the most with the least amount of space.
Organizing your bathroom doesn’t have to be a chore. With these options, your bathroom may become the most organized room in your home.
