See what I mean? Yikes.

But today I wanted to share some super easy ways to organize your own bathroom to make it a space that doesn’t make you wanna pull your hair out!

Clear Drawers for Storing Necessities

Use clear acrylic drawers to easily see and access your hair products. No more rummaging through clutter! We have these stacking acrylic drawers from Amazon and they’re legit one of my favorite things in our bathroom.

All White Towels

Keeping all your towels white not only gives a clean, cohesive look to your bathroom but also simplifies your laundry routine because you can just throw them all in the wash, they can be bleached to remove stains and maintain their brightness, and they match any decor, making them super versatile!

Keep Surfaces Clean

I know this is a tough one and I’m also preaching to the choir, but having less stuff on counter surfaces make cleaning easier and create a more spacious feel.

Floating Shelves for Extra Storage

Install floating shelves to display and store items without taking up floor space. We installed these in our own bathroom and they’ve been SO helpful. I even use them in our cleaning closet too for our favorite microfiber cloths.

They provide a modern look and can be used to showcase decorative pieces or everyday essentials, making your space both functional and stylish.

Magnetic Strips for Bobby Pins

Stick a magnetic strip inside a cabinet door to keep bobby pins and small metal items in place.

Greenery is also good. And lemme be real with you – if you’re not a green thumb, no fear. Get yourself a lil’ faux plant and call it a day. People will get your drift.

Now I’m not saying by doing all these steps that you’ll have the perfectly organized bathroom all the time, but it may at least be a good start!
