Toiletries can take over a bathroom quickly. With our simple organizing solutions, any bathroom can have well-organized toiletries.

By Becky Rapinchuk

Keep bathroom counters decluttered by utilizing drawer space. This countertop drawer adds extra storage on top of the counter while keeping things tucked away when no longer needed. The addition of small ceramic dishes looks chic and keeps small items like nail polish and cosmetics contained.

Don't Forget Walls

Short on counter space? Use your bathroom walls to hang decorative cups and containers for storing toothpaste and toothbrushes or makeup tools. This will keep toiletries off counters and in easy reach.

Pullout Storage

Use a pullout storage system in a cabinet or vanity to maximize your bathroom storage space. Contain extra toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, and soap, or create a makeup or manicure station.

Use Trays

Shallow trays keep toiletries contained on bathroom countertops. They make cleaning easy, too -- just move the tray when it's time to wipe underneath. To make even more use of the space on a tray, incorporate glasses and small containers to group and store toiletries upright.

Contain and Label

Sort your toiletries by type or expiration. Group like items, and place them in a labeled bin or basket. Toiletries will be accessible but out of the way when organized and contained in bathroom cabinetry.

Add a Lazy Susan

Lazy Susans are great for keeping things contained while taking up a small amount of space. Bonus points go to lazy Susans with dividers -- these make it even easier to sort toiletries.

Fill Cabinets

Don't forget to use your bathroom cabinets for toiletry storage. If they are open, make your storage decorative. Don't be afraid to leave out your pretty bottles of body wash and lotion as decor in your bathroom.
