The trick to every bathroom is cleanliness and efficiency. I’m here to make your royal throne room easy to navigate on busy mornings when you “accidentally” press your snooze button three times, or for calm and relaxing days when you just want to take a long soak in the tub. Below are a few items that are sure to help give any bathroom a new look.
I find what works best, especially in my bathroom, are a variety of plastic storage containers. Go with a set of 5 for your bathroom; three small stackable ones for on the counter storage of jewelry, dental and facial supplies, and two larger ones for under the cabinet items such as hair sprays, blow dryers and other things that are too big to fit on the counter.
2 small three-drawer storage containers from Target- $20 (If you buy them online, you have to buy 6 at a time, so I would suggest going to the store)
2 medium 3-drawer storage containers from Target- $30 (Available in stores only)
Another thing that will help the organization of your bathroom is an over-the-toilet cabinet, which can be easily built and installed to add more storage space. These can run you anywhere from $60 to $200 depending on the style, material and storage space.

Keep your shower organized with an easy to assembly shower caddy. It does wonders for keeping all your bath products together.
