5 Organisational Ideas For Your Tiny Bathroom

On a daily basis, the time spent in our bathroom often feels rather insignificant. However, a recent study suggests that the average human will spend 416 days in the bathroom, in their lifetime. Given the sheer amount of time we spend in our bathrooms, we'd definitely want to make good use of our time there.

Having said that, keeping a tiny bathroom organised and functional can be quite the challenge given the various amount of things that we typically store in our bathrooms. It’s easy to end up with a jumbled, messy space that doesn’t function well when you're tight on space in your small bathroom but this certainly isn't the most ideal way to start or end our days. We've thus compiled a list of 5 organisational ideas for your tiny bathroom so that you can achieve a space that's both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional!

1. Don't let your walls go to waste 

For those who have limited counter space, look to the side of your bathroom and take a look at your walls. Your walls, and to be more specific, the ones beside your vanity, offer the perfect place for additional storage. The installation of shelves on the wall next to your vanity helps to keeps things off your counters, which gives the entire bathroom a more organised look whilst still leaving the items you use daily within easy reach.

2. Make use of command hooks and baskets 

If you're not keen on the idea of having to drill shelves onto your walls, another alternative solution is to stick a couple of command hooks onto your walls so that you can hang your baskets. This is also perfect for hiding away any unsightly items or clutter.

3. Keep your shower organised with a shower caddy 

Rather than constantly having to bend down to get a pump of shampoo or conditioner, consider adding a shower caddy to your shower! Designed to take up minimal space in the shower, shower caddies are perfect for keeping your shower organised whilst making it convenient for you to reach for your shower essentials. Shower caddies are also great for those who are sharing the bathroom with others, as you can simply allocate specific tiers to specific persons.

4. Level up your space with a ladder 

Apart from serving to add a touch of decor to your bathroom, a ladder is also extremely functional, providing a spot to hang towels as well as other items like baskets containing extra toilet paper or your spare bottles of shampoo and body wash. Because these ladders are designed to be relatively slim and to not protrude much from the wall, they are definitely ideal options for narrow and tiny bathrooms.

5. Take advantage of the inside of your cabinet doors 

An area of your bathroom that provides additional storage possibilities is the inside of your cabinet doors! Similar to the previously mentioned point, simply make use of a couple of hooks or command hooks coupled with some baskets. These will serve as the perfect solution to store items like your razors, scissors, hair tools, brushes, among others. 

Just remember not to choose baskets that are too bulky or wide, as you'd still want to be able to close your cabinet doors after installing them!
