If you are like most people, getting your bathroom organized can be a bit of a problem. With so many toiletries, towels, cleaning products and other items, bringing order to your space is a good idea. Here are a few of the top DIY bathroom storage ideas that you can tackle this weekend.



1. Hair Dryer and Curling Iron Storage

Who else has the fear they will set their bathroom on fire if they put away a hot curling or flat iron? I know I’m not the only one. The solution for many of us to to just put the hot appliance on the counter to cool down. Then we walk away and it stays there until the next morning until we need it again.

Break out of the vicious cycle of always having bathroom appliances out on the counter. Instead, hang a metal basket on the wall or side of the counter. You will need to figure out what area in your bathroom this works best. This solution also keeps these appliance out of drawers and cabinets where the cord can get tangled around other things.



2. Storage Bins on Cabinet Doors

Cabinets never have enough shelf space for your needs. A lot of times, a cabinet will not even have shelves at all. It is an open space. Regardless of how your cabinets are set up inside, creating storage bins on the cabinet doors is a win win.

You can hang racks on the inside of your cabinet doors or go with something a bit more fancy. For a more aesthetic look, consider building a shelf onto your cabinet doors. This gives you plenty of space to fit cosmetics and bottles of beauty products.



3. Decorate the Wall With Baskets

There is hardly a way to have too many baskets in the home. They are the perfect solution for storage. Not only are they functional, but basket bring beauty and fashion to your home. In the bathroom, consider hanging one or more rows of baskets to house your items.

You can fill these baskets with towels, toiletries, or anything you have need of. It is simple to hang baskets on the wall. Just keep in mind how full you make the baskets. You don’t want to overload them.



4. Organizer That Goes Under the Sink

Like I said, a lot of cabinets do not have shelving or good storage solutions. The floor of your cabinet can become quite cluttered. Consider buying small three drawer containers. These containers are stackable and hold a lot of small knick knacks.



5. Pocket Organizer For The Bathroom

Funny thing about shoe organizers, it is hard to fit shoes in them. Haven’t you noticed that you have to be a size 4 for those things to really work out? However, they do come in handy when it comes to organizing your bathroom.

A shoe organizer can be cut into smaller sections to fit on the inside of your cabinets. By using the same hooks that you would hang it over the door, you can easily retrofit it to your cabinets.
