When you have a tiny bathroom in your home, you know that how you use your space is of the utmost importance. Unless you’re clever about how you arrange things and where you store your products, your bathroom can quickly become an out-of-hand mess. And even the nicest, sleekest, most-organized bathrooms can have a dirty little secret—a messy cabinet under the sink. If your cabinet feels like it’s too small a space to store all your products, you’re not alone—but there are some ways you can hack it to make it look and feel more organized.

Attach storage bins inside cabinet doors

This project from Remodelaholic looks super sleek, but also requires you to make and install the bins yourself from scratch—if you’re a renter and can’t modify the cabinets that much, or you’re looking for an easier solution, you can also get bins that stick on or suction to the door, or baskets that hang over the door.

Use a tension rod to hang spray bottles

This idea from A Thousand Words is great for storing cleaning products that come in spray bottles, and frees up extra space on the bottom of the cabinet for baskets and other items. You can also get hooks to hang small baskets and any other products that have a loop.

Use shower caddies as shelves

Those metal caddies that you would typically hang from your shower head can come in incredibly handy for under-the-sink storage—just look at this example from Pretty Organized. The tiers allow you to store a lot more products without putting them all over the place, and they free up so much space for additional items.

Stick Command hooks inside doors

An easily removable solution for hair tools and anything with loops: hang command hooks from the inside of your cabinet doors, like in this example from The Krazy Koupon Lady. Everything will still be out of sight, out of mind—but in a much more organized fashion.

Install magnetic strips inside

To keep track of bobby pins, tweezers, nail clippers and other small metal items you keep in your bathroom (and often misplace), install a magnetic strip inside your bathroom cabinet, and stick things there when you’re done using them. This image, from Darkroom & Dearly, shows how effective it can be.
