3 Bathroom Storage Hacks to Create More Space

When you're getting ready to sell your home - or when you've purchased a new home - you're going to be looking at making your bathroom appear larger. The best way to do that: Declutter everything.

Check out these three bathroom storage hacks to improve your space.

3 Bathroom Storage Hacks to Create More Space

First things first: Start your bathroom organization project by clearing out all your drawers and cabinets. If you have a linen closet, pull everything from it, too. Then, you can:

  1. Categorize your items
  2. Create more storage
  3. Hang things up

Here's a closer look at each. 

#1. Categorize your items.

Divide your toiletries and bathroom items by type. You'll need separate piles for:

  • Hair products
  • Soap and shampoo
  • Makeup
  • First aid
  • Paper products

Once you've got everything separated, start thinking about how you'd like to store them. Experts usually suggest bins or baskets, which come in a wide range of styles and sizes. You can pick mesh wire bins, acrylic boxes or even wicker baskets.

#2. Create more storage.

Create more storage in your bathroom by adding stackable containers beneath your sink - or, if you're handy, by installing pull-out drawers to hold all your bathroom items that belong down there.

Take advantage of all the storage space you can. For example, hang a wire basket over the back of your door for things like curling irons, straighteners, blow dryers and brushes. Think about adding a tiered dessert stand to the center of your counter (but if you're selling your home, whisk it away before buyers come for tours).

#3. Hang things up.

If you have an in-bathroom linen closet, think about installing a small rod and hanging your towels. That'll free up shelf space for other items (including more baskets and bins that help you stay organized).
