The bathroom is one of the most important rooms of the house. Whether it’s a primary suite like Jonathan and Zooey’s or a beautiful half bath, it has to hold a lot of essentials, like toilet paper, towels, products, and more. So if you’re working within a less forgiving footprint, you may be scratching your head on the right small bathroom storage ideas you need to keep everything clutter-free. But there are tons of clever products that can tackle that, like organizers that double as bathroom wall decor and modern vanities that secretly pack storage galore.

The most important thing when planning your bathroom organization project is to consider what issues you’re having now. Do you have a pedestal sink and are lacking a place to put styling tools and everyday items? Are you sick of looking at the cardboard boxes that your cotton swabs and contacts come in? Could you use more large, closed storage to hide your essentials? Once you’ve identified your pain points, you can shop solutions below and then you’ll be ready for the fun part…decorating your bathroom!


SPACEKEEPER Slim Rolling Storage Cart



There are so many small bottles, containers, and tools needed in a bathroom. If you’re short on vanity storage, you may feel stuck on where to put it all. This super slim cart is the answer, as it can hold a ton of stuff (one of our editors confirms this!) without taking up a ton of room. It’s also customizable, as it can be used as stackable undersink shelves, too.


Godboat Bathroom Organizers



No room for a large over-the-toilet cabinet? Try this clever shelf instead. It slides over the back of the tank and stays in place with two adhesive stickers. Our editor puts the apothecary jars seen below in it, as well as lotions and hair products.


Aozita Apothecary Jar



No one wants their cotton swab boxes and floss pick packages cluttering up the counter. These clear jars keep everyday items easy to access and they look chic while doing it.


Sorbus Towel Holder



You’ll probably hear this a lot from us, but never underestimate the wall! It’s a perfect spot for mounted organizers like this one that can hold three towels. That’s so much more convenient than having to run down the hall to a linen closet when you need a new one.


YIGII Hair Dryer Holder



Hair tools are bulky and hard to organize. This over-the-door shelf makes quick work at keeping them under control and out of sight. Though you can also mount it on the wall, should you have a pedestal sink or be fresh out of room in your current vanity.


BREIS Multifunction Organizer



Most makeup organizers take up a lot of counterspace, but not this one. It’s thin, but still has two small drawers and several compartments that can handle different-sized items like perfume, makeup brushes, cosmetics, and more.


Scott Living Thurston 36 in. Bathroom Vanity



The right centerpiece can make a world of difference when organizing a small bathroom. This vanity not only looks great, but packs spacious storage drawers all within a petite 36-inch frame that will fit almost any bathroom.


Coraje Shower Caddy



When taking in the amount of usable space you have, don’t forget about your shower! These shelves are easy to install and can hold up to 40 pounds of bath supplies. Now you can go all out with your self-care routines!


Calirose Freestanding Over-The-Toilet Storage



Another spot you might overlook is above your toilet. These four-tier open shelves maximize your storage capacity in a big way, and their raised edges ensure you don’t have to worry about accessories falling down and making a splash.


Netany Plastic Storage Baskets



When in doubt, always turn to baskets. These have a plastic woven design that’s perfect for bathroom storage because they’re waterproof and easy to clean.


ZGO Floating Shelves



And if you are running out of shelf space, don’t forget that you can always add more. These floating shelves are easy to install and have a simple design that will match almost any small bathroom’s decor.


Tuoxinem Small Bathroom Storage Cabinet



This cabinet’s tall, slim profile can fit in a lot of teensy corners and crannies. It’s great for holding extra toilet paper, products, and more.


Spacekeeper Under Sink Organizer



Don’t let mess pile up under your sink just because it’s out of sight. This organizer optimizes your cabinet space and comes with removable dividers so you can customize your storage.


Webi Over The Door Hook Door Hanger



A lot of people forget that you can use your door as more than an entrance. Add on these hooks, and you also have a great place to hang towels and bathrobes.


Teamson Home Catalina Detachable Bathroom Cabinet



For those still struggling for space, it might be worth it to install completely new cabinetry. Coated with a dark espresso finish, this cabinet will provide warmth, style, and ample storage space.
