It doesn't take much before items in the bathroom become unmanageable. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways in which you can organize your bathroom and keep it from becoming cluttered ever again. If your bathroom is in need of some serious clutter management, here are 15 bathroom storage ideas to whip it back into shape.

1. Bathroom Purge

Start organizing your bathroom by eliminating items you never use along with things still wrapped in beefy packaging. Lay out the things you use on a daily basis and start from there. If you have to justify keeping it, then it should probably go. Once you have condensed everything down to the essentials, you will have a better idea about which storage options are best suited for your situation.

2. Shower Storage

Shower curtain rods can be utilized to hang wet towels as well as holding the curtain. You can purchase a combination rod that is usually installed right below the existing curtain. This gives you a free surface to hang anything, from a change of clothes to wet towels and swimwear. You can also install the bar on the inside of the shower so that wet items drip into the tub.

3. Turntables

Turntables, or lazy Susans, allow you better access to products without having to line them up. All you have to do is rotate the turntable to get whatever you need for day, which frees up a lot of storage space inside cupboards and below sinks.

4. Shower Organizers

Shower organizers are great if your tub does not feature built-in storage. Organizers that fit around the shower head are ideal because they are more secure and can hold a slew of items, depending on their size. They also help prevent mold build up on the bottom of your bottles as water can easily escape through the unit.

5. Door Racks

Door racks are great for storing items you use every day and need quick access to, like hair dryers and flat irons. These handy inventions usually hang on the inside of drawers and are not visible when the doors are shut. A big plus is that they utilize a space that isn't traditionally used for storage.

6. Baskets

Baskets that don't fit inside cabinets can be hung on walls for extra storage. Jute and wicker baskets are perfect for storing things like extra towels, toilet paper, and other bathroom necessities. Simply have the baskets with some shelving brackets or secure them to the wall with fasteners.

7. Small Storage

Throw away any hair accessories that you don't use or are broken. This should cut your hair accessory collection down by a good fraction. Once the bad things have been filtered, use a paper clip holder to store hairpins and a ring clip for hair fasteners.

8. Dividers

Only store items in your drawers that you use multiple times each week. Anything you use less frequently should be stored in another location. Drawer dividers can help you organize these everyday items and make them easier to find. If you don't have a lot of drawer space, install a caddy over the door to store larger items, like lotions, freeing up space inside for the smaller things.

9. Bath Tub Wrangler

A laundry bag can serve as a storage container for all of your kid toys. Simply hang the bag with a suction cup and place the toys inside. Place the bag high so that the toys can drip dry throughout the day, but not too high that your kids cannot access it.

10. Toilet Shelving

Placing a shelving unit above the toilet is a great way to add storage space without taking up too much additional space. A leaning shelf works great for this and can add a level of style to the space. You can also install baskets on the shelf for holding items that do not sit well outside of a container.

11. Mason Jar Shelves

If you do not have a lot of space for proper shelving, consider using mason jars instead. You can secure the jars to a piece of wood with simple ring clamps. Another option is to hang the jars with some twine or wire, which is then mounted to the board. The mason jars can then be used to store all sorts of bathroom objects, including toothbrushes, cotton balls, and makeup accessories.

12. Bathroom Cart

Bathroom carts are one of the most versatile storage options on the market. They can hold a variety of bathroom products, including towels, hair accessories, and makeup, and can be rolled away when not in use. This frees up valuable space in your bathroom for more important items and allows you to be more liberal about what you keep on hand. Better yet, these carts come in a variety and shapes and sizes and can be finished to meet your style.

13. Wall Cabinets

Wall cabinets are a classic storage option for bathrooms. Not only do they offer storage on the wall, but they feature bars for drying towels. You can also utilize the inside shelves for storing larger containers. If you do not have a lot of wall space, you can always install a medicine cabinet with a mirror on the front. This will give you additional storage options without sacrificing wall space.

14. Storage Containers

Storage containers are a great way to organize your bathroom supplies in neat and orderly fashion. You can buy glass containers of varying sizes and even customize them with adorable labels and decorations. You can also stack these containers just about anywhere and make them airtight to protect valuables from moisture.

15. Floating Shelves

Installing floating shelves in the bathroom is a traditional way to add storage space. You can place these shelves just about anywhere there is an open wall and stack them as high as possible. Using baskets and glass containers is a great way to keep things as organized as possible once the shelves are in place.

Floating shelves can be installed almost anywhere in a bathroom.
