Is your tiny bathroom hard to keep organized? Tiny bathrooms that were carved out of old closets, a back porch, or tucked beneath a stair case tend not to have a lot of organization space. This lack of storage space is often intentional so as to make a tiny bathroom look much larger than it really is.
Organizing a tiny bathroom without making it seem cluttered is really a challenge. Here’s a few ways in which our family managed to organize a tiny 4 x 6 upstairs bathroom in our home; these organization tips should work for you as well.
1. Install hotel towel racks. You’ve seen these in hotels, but hotel towel racks also work well for organizing and storing towels in a tiny bathroom. Hotel towel racks are chrome racks designed to hold anywhere from two-to-four sets of guest towels. Amazon currently has a 3-guest size towel rack listed at $34.99; you can check it out here.
2. Use upright toilet paper holders. When a bathroom doesn’t have cupboard space, most of us ending up storing extra rolls on back of the tank. A better solution is to use a toilet paper holder to keep those extra rolls organized and out of sight. Our family uses a 5-roll toilet paper holder which hangs on the wall out of the way. You can see Amazon’s selection of toilet paper holders here.
3. Suction cup toothbrush/soap holders. Tiny bathrooms usually mean very little counter space. To organize our toothbrushes, toothpaste, extra soaps, and other small toiletry items, we use suction-backed holders on the tile walls of our bathroom. These washable holders attach by suction instead of using screws and won’t damage the walls. Suction cup toothbrush holders can be found as low as $3.
4. Bathtub Caddy. No place to store shampoos, soaps, or your aromatherapy candles? A bathroom caddy fits over both sides of the tub and is a fantastic way to keep bathtub toiletries organized and out of the way. Bathroom caddies start at $75 and can cost up to several hundred dollars, depending on style. Here’s a peek at some of the more affordable options listed on Google Products.
5. Door hooks on the back of the bathroom door are a great way of organizing bathrobes and pajamas. If you live in a rental or prefer not to drill holes in your bathroom door, the over-the-door bathroom door hooks are a great alternative. Over-the-door bathroom hooks start at $5 and are available at all discount department stores.
