(un)Spring Cleaning: 5 Tips for Organizing Your Bathroom

Ellicott City Tenant Organizing Her Bathroom Drawers Something that most Ellicott City renters will find challenging is keeping a bathroom organized. Not only is an organized bathroom easier to keep in shape; it also helps your morning routine. Clutter can be what causes anxiety or frustration. So, make sure your bathroom is tidied up so that you can feel relaxed all day! Still, in order for an organized bathroom to be realized, you need to put in the time. Read on for some easy and practical tips to keeping your bathroom as organized as possible.


In order to get started on an organized bathroom, it is a big must to declutter. A lot of people store so many things in their bathroom that end up not being used for the longest time. For this reason, it’s a wise decision to look through all of your cabinets, drawers, or shelves, to find out if there are any items that should be disposed of. If it’s expired, it’s going straight into the trash — it’s that simple. Take all of the similar items, group them together and take stock. If you find items are duplicated that haven’t been used in the past year, get rid of them. Then, you can begin organizing items that you need.

Categorize to Organize

When you finish decluttering, you can then proceed to categorize. This will allow you to organize better. If this bathroom is only for you, then you can categorize it according to your routine needs. For example, you may want to set up a shelf, bin, or drawer for your morning routine and then another for the evening routine. If the bathroom is not exclusively for your use, though, you can provide caddies for the personal items of others who use it. Those caddies can be stored on a shelf or in a cabinet.

Invest in Clear Storage Containers

A bathroom becomes disorganized when things aren’t where they are supposed to be. One solution to this is making use of clear storage containers. These containers can be used to store your already categorized items. Shallow drawer organizers can be great for keeping toothbrushes, makeup, and other small items neat. Taller containers can provide separation between other items for shelves and cabinets.

A Place for Everything

As you re-organize your bathroom, assign each of your items to a designated place. This will prevent clutter from happening all over again. Another tip is to keep things off of the bathroom counter. Instead, you can utilize bins, drawers, and baskets. It makes things a whole lot easier when you label your storage containers so that you can easily find the items you need.

Use Your Space Effectively

Bathrooms are often cluttered because they are small. Most of the time, the space you have to work with is very limited, making it extra challenging to make things work. It’s quite possible, though, that there is some underutilized space inside your bathroom. No matter how small, it can help to organize your space. Hooks behind doors, storage containers attached to the cabinet doors, and the space above the toilet are all potential storage areas. The key is to make good use of these things so that you can keep your bathroom clean and organized.
