If organization is your forte (or something you want to dive into), don’t overlook your bathroom. It’s one of the most high-traffic areas in a home, especially if you have a large family with plenty of items that require smart storage solutions. It’s where you start and end your day, so it’s important for it to look as polished as possible.

Regardless of your bathroom’s size, these picks are the right mix of style and function. The perfect example? A durable bar cart, which you can buy in just about any style or color you see fit.

Wood Shower Bench
Decorative ladders with spacious shelving are brilliant for bathrooms. Place baskets of towels, accessories and other items on the bottom shelves, and more important products (and lighter items) on the top.
If you think you’ll struggle with keeping your bathroom clean and organized, try designing the space with built-in parts that’ll make the future process easier. Instead of using drawers, purchase a vanity set with shelf space at the bottom. Make sure there’s enough room to hold baskets of items.
Ditch resting your towels on the shower rods. Use that empty wall space to install an assortment of hooks for your bathrobes, pants, shirts, swimsuits, bath towels and more.
Vanity trays can add a luxurious feel to a space. They make appealing backdrops for toiletries and help keep your everyday items (including your toothbrush, perfume, soap and face cloth) in one place.

Bathroom Accessory Set
Sometimes, all it takes is drawing the eye up to add more style and function to a bathroom. The perfect example? An over-the-door shelf to store extra towels.
Snagged a large-scale storage cabinet (bonus points if it’s vintage) but not exactly sure where to put it? Consider letting it set the foundation for your bathroom and serve as extra storage space for towels, cosmetics and more.

A laundry bag doubles as the perfect receptacle for your kids’ foam alphabet letters, rubber ducks and mermaid dolls. Just hang the bag from a suction cup hook somewhere in the shower, so the toys can drip dry.
Drawer dividers simplify your morning makeup search because they prevent lipsticks, brushes and other favorites from rolling around when you open or close the drawer.
Instead of piling up cleaning products and extra toiletries, try adding a lazy Susan to your bathroom closet. When you’re on the hunt for a specific product, just spin it around until you find what you’re looking for.
The jute basket that just doesn’t fit in your bathroom cabinet might have a purpose elsewhere — like on the walls. Hang two above your toilet to hold rolled up towels and discreetly hide toilet paper in a handy spot.
As bathroom necessities change and evolve (Band-Aids, razors and so on), keep ’em organized with these adorably accessorized mason jars.
A shallow cabinet with sliding doors adds tons of storage in minimal space. Stick to two sets of towels per family member (assuming you do laundry once a week), plus two sets for guests.
Let your towels and delicates dry — without being on display. Install a combination shower-curtain rod and towel bar so items can drip-dry into your tub. (We mounted ours backward, so the towels hang behind the curtain.)
