Easy Bathroom Countertop Storage Ideas

In most bathrooms, the surface space can be very limited. Smaller bathrooms can be more challenging keeping the bathroom counter clear if it has limited space.

Unlike the kitchen, many bathrooms aren’t designed to have lots of counter space to prepare for the day. Here are some best bathroom counter organization ideas:

It seems that bathroom counters are difficult for many to keep clear. Maybe it’s because we use many different products when getting ready in the morning. I believe the main reason is because one doesn’t have a designated place to put bathroom items away.

Our goal is to organize your bathroom counter once.  We will get creative, finding designated places for the items you use. Once you have a system, it will be simple to put things where they belong.



1. Only store bathroom items in the bathroom – I know this sounds silly, but you will amazed to see what you may find once you begin to clear your counter as well as and other areas in the bathroom. If you went through your drawers and cabinets, would you find items that would never use in the bathroom?

Items that don’t belong in your bathroom should be relocated to their correct place. Take time each week to clear off any items from your bathroom counter that sneak their way back that don’t belong there.

3. Simple storage solutions -It’s best to sort first to see how much you have to organize before you buy any plastic containers. Having simple containers, helps to keep your bathroom items in one place and easy to find. One reason people leave items out on their counter is because they like having it easily accessible. Yet if there are lots items on the counter, it’s the opposite, it is difficult to find what you need. Keep it simple! 

4. Less is More! – You have sorted through your drawers and counter and have less to organize. Now you will find it easier to get your items in order and have a nice space to get ready in every day.

5. Having less to manage will make it easier to keep your space cleaned up and have bathroom counter organization. It will not only help to create a relaxing environment, but you will feel like you are making more use of the items that you have remaining!

If you are limited on cabinets or shelving in your bathroom, and have some counter space, this could be the perfect solution.
