Keeping bathroom ephemera organized—and possibly even attractive—requires constant vigilance, ruthless culling, and the right tools. This baker's dozen of bins, caddies, shelves, and hooks will keep all of your supplies in order, whether on display for easy access or tucked away for privacy reasons.
As seen in Ana and Patrick's bathroom, above, a storage ladder can provide a ton of attractive storage on a small footprint. The lower, wider shelves can hold towels, while the upper shelves can keep extra toilet paper, air freshener, a jar of tampons, candles, and other essentials right at-hand, making life easier for you and your guests.
Umbra Grassy Organizer, $9.91
Use this cute little doodad to hold your toothbrushing accessories as shown, your just-washed makeup brushes, your mascaras and eye/lip pencils, and anything else that tends to roll around in a drawer. It's easily washable and available in white, green, and this lovely blue.
mDesign Gold Vanity Canister, $12.99/Set of 2
There are a few gold-accented bathroom organization options from mDesign—toothbrush holder, tumbler, soap dispenser—that all received 4 stars/88 reviews, so you could totally unify your bathroom. These canisters are so reasonably priced that you could buy a bunch and organize everything.
Stainless Steel Over-Door Hooks, $6.99/Set of 4
These hooks are so incredibly cute, but you'll have to relinquish design control, as they are sent in sets of random colors, dealer's choice. Buy a bunch at this low, low price, and decide what room in the house to hang them in once you see what colors you've got!
Jack Cube Acrylic Nail Polish Rack, Starting at $12.90/Set of 3
You could obviously use these to display your enviable nail varnish collection, but if you're not able to fill three shelves, never fear: they can also hold perfumes, makeup, essential oils, and, evidently, Be@rbricks. Pro tip: attach the shelves to the wall with gold screws for extra glam.
mDesign Clarity Shower Caddy Tote, Starting at $14.24
This tastefully minimal tote will be super-handy, whether you're toting your toiletries to the bathroom, corralling your lesser-used going-out styling supplies, holding all your spa day essentials, or—if you're me—keeping all your bathroom cleaning supplies in one easy-to-grab kit. It's available in three sizes and eight lovely colors.
InterDesign Wire Storage Basket, Starting at $14.99
Make the most of your under-sink area with a collection of bins that you can fill with cleaning supplies, toiletries, first aid supplies, and toilet paper and then pull out with ease. Everything will stay sorted and easily accessible!
Umbra Prism Accessory Organizer, $15.31
If you're in the habit of taking off jewelry before you bathe or shower, don't just leave it on the countertop (or is it just me who has a ring-down-the-drain phobia?). This small and graceful holder will keep them safe and sound.
Muji MOMA PP Make Boxes, Starting at $8.79
These items don't have many/any reviews, but take it from me: everything Muji makes is beautiful and highly useful. It was very tempting to include all of the available products—toothbrush holders, acrylic boxes, refill bottles—on this list. All of the products are so simple and so perfect, in a way that doesn't translate well to photography. Order what you can via Amazon, and stock up if you ever get to visit one of the lovely Muji shops!
Umbra Flex Shower Caddy, $21.18
The main problem with most shower caddies is their eagerness to rust; this plastic caddy is one of your best bets. I love the upside-down bottle holes (which could also hold razors) and the fact that it comes in gray, as well as white and blue.
AquaTeak Shower Organizer, $79.95
If the plastic shower caddy is an affordable, practical option, this teak version is a gorgeous work of art. My Target shampoo would be severely outclassed.
I cannot believe I'm recommending an item that both costs more than $100 and holds toilet paper, but here we are. I looked through tons of multiple-roll holders—an option that's helpful if you don't have any enclosed storage and that makes life less awkward for houseguests—and it is the most attractive option (the larger option is even prettier/pricier). I especially enjoy that it doesn't take up any precious floor space and that it's made of concrete; however, note that it only holds regular-size rolls.
ModernTropic Bamboo Tub Tray, $39.95
Is a bathtub something that can be organized? Now that I know tub trays like this exist, my answer is a resounding YES. Keep all your tub essentials safe and dry and consider never getting out of the bath. This tray can also hold all your bath time essentials—candles, bath salts, soap, bath bombs—even when you're not in the tub, thus freeing up storage space elsewhere.
