In the Bathroom

Put pullouts to use. Introduce under-sink storage solutions to a voluminous cabinet by arranging gear on a two-tier shelf with rolling drawers. The narrow top shelf glides past plumbing and allows space on the lower level for tall items.

Repurpose kitchen helpers. Use kitchen organizers to bring order to personal gear. In this under-sink caddy, a wire wine holder cools a curling iron and a ceramic egg container stops jewelry tangles. Line the trays of a tiered pullout with rubber shelf liner cut to size. Acrylic boxes stay in place; tall bottles remain standing.

Install prime perches. Make the most of every inch of available space under your bathroom sink with vanity-area add-ons. An adhesive hook and hanger provides hanging space for a cosmetics bag inside the cabinet door.

Illuminate dark spaces. Find your way in the dark with adhesive undercabinet lighting. A simple tap turns these small LED lanterns on and off, making every corner visible. Place as many as you need wherever they make sense.

Keep small items in check. Hide the chaos of unruly hair notions and sample packets in small photo files or under-sink bins. Hand-penned labels announce the items in each petite drawer, and the solid structure creates a shelf for extra washcloths and soaps.

How to Clean a Bathroom Countertop and Sink

Check out these easy cleaning tips to make your bathroom sink and countertop shine. 

In the Kitchen

Put everything in its place. Take an inventory of your needs to determine the shapes and sizes of the cleaning products you must store. An acrylic utensil tray sorts scrub brushes and replacement heads. A metal silverware caddy stores gloves, brushes, and sponges that need to move with you as you clean. Rolls of garbage bags are secure in wine bins designed for the refrigerator.

In the Kitchen

Maximize the top half of the cabinet box. Stacking shelves smartly fill this space, allowing some items to slide underneath and others to stack on top. Tightly sealed plastic bins keep sponges from drying out, while airtight containers keep dish-washing pellets moisture-free.

In the Kitchen

Create mini layers with a three-tier riser. Push the shelf all the way to the back of the cupboard to get the most of every inch of space, and position bottles so all labels are easy to read. Don’t forget to outfit your undersink area with wipeable vinyl shelf liner for cleanliness and a dash of style.

In the Kitchen

Break out of the box. Make your own DIY under-sink storage! Refrigerator wine bins are just the right size for rolls of garbage bags.

In the Kitchen

Introduce function to cabinet doors. A slim over-the-door bar makes for easy under-cabinet storage and keeps spare hand towels within reach for a quick cleanup.

In the Mudroom

Divide and conquer the space based on specific duties. Under-sink storage ideas aren't limited to your kitchen and bathroom. In this mudroom cabinet, frequently used laundry supplies are up front, sending overstock and less-used items to the back. A decorative pail gathers spot-removers, while detergents are most efficient in tall, airtight containers. Postwash supplies wait on a lazy Susan.

In the Mudroom

Make space for family pets. Toys, leashes, treats, and pet shampoos huddle in an under-sink bin, making them a breeze to find. The labeled bin rests on a wire riser in the back of the cabinet for grab-and-go convenience.

In the Mudroom

Easy access is essential. Stash gear in clusters and kits so everything is easy to find. Try grouping laundry items on a turntable to ensure quick access in an memorable location.

In the Mudroom

Enlist a message board. A magnetic dry-erase board mounted inside a cabinet door ensures no stain-removal tip—or care request—goes unnoticed.

Look up for surprise organizing opportunities. This plastic shower caddy normally hangs vertically, but it functions well on its side, keeping daily dog supplies within reach. The suction cups adhere effortlessly to the underside of a utility sink.
