Ensuring that there is a place for every roll of toilet paper and every single q-tip can be one of the main struggles in maintaining your bathroom’s cleanliness.

Utilize the following forms of bathroom inspiration to gather clever ideas that will maximize your space!
1. Jar Board
This unique DIY will allow you to effectively organize those small bathroom accessories that tend to get lost in the depths of your sink drawers. By fastening mason jars to a plank of wood, you can create an attractive system of storage that will have the most reached for items right at your fingertips.

If you have a free standing sink, you can make a mock storage space underneath. Stack bins or baskets and fasten a curtain around your sink to maintain an outwardly tidy appearance. You can coordinate this sink skirt with your shower curtain for a cohesive look. Change it up when you get bored of it!
3. Storage Ladder
A functional yet decorative item – the storage ladder! The lowest shelves are broad and serve for a great spot to put extra towels and hair tools. While the upper levels get more narrow, and can be suitable for toilet paper, loofahs, and lotion bottles. A storage ladder is useful because it serves for not only organization purposes, but also a place to set your decorative items.
4. Magnetic Strip
Finally, a way to prevent yourself from losing all of those bobby pins and hair clips! Fasten a magnetic strip to your wall for a small and useful way to keep all that is metal in one easy to find area. Forgot to take your earrings off before getting into the shower? Stick them onto this metal strip and easily retrieve them when you are out. This is also very handy for your tweezers and nail clippers!
5. Spice Rack
Just because it was made for the kitchen doesn’t mean it can’t be useful in the bathroom as well! Try using a spice rack to house your frequently used bottled items. You will be able to quickly reach them as you are getting ready and they will be kept out of the way. This guarantees that you won’t overload your counter space!
6. Under the Sink
Try fastening a shower caddy to the inside of your sink drawers! Instead of a heaping pile of items stacked tall underneath your sink, you will be able to keep the area organized and you will be able to easily reach for anything you need. Best part is, no complicated assembly is required! The example above shows a fully-stocked hair care zone all in one organized area.

Because they swivel horizontally, you will be able to see every item to easily find what it is that you are looking for.
A set of hooks that can be fastened to your mirror or wall can be very useful. This takes up absolutely no counter space or cabinet space. Try using suction cups on your mirror for a no-fuss way to fasten the hooks. You will be able to move them at any time and even remove them completely if you feel that you don’t need them anymore.
