Clever & easy small bathroom organizing ideas!

Do you have a bathroom or powder room that has a pedestal sink that doesn’t offer any storage? Or maybe it’s just a very small under sink cabinet? I have both issues in my home, so I decided to look up some clever and easy small bathroom organizing ideas. I say clever because I didn’t want the normal “shelves with baskets of towels” kind of ideas. I wanted organizing solutions that are not only useful but unique, creative, and pretty!

Clever and easy small bathroom organizing ideas

Repurposed crate shelves

I love this idea for two reasons! One, recycling or repurposing anything is usually much cheaper than buying something new. Two, the crates offer so much more shelf space than your typical bookshelves. You could also easily paint or whitewash them to match your bathroom decor scheme.

How brilliant is this mirror storage cabinet?? It’s obviously more involved than nailing in a couple of shelves, but the storage payoff is well worth the extra labor. The fact that she was able to create it for only $100 is so impressive. Mirrors are a great way to instantly make any space look bigger, and full-length mirrors double the impact!

Because it is clear, glass shelving creates the optical illusion of taking up less space than shelves made of wood or other opaque material. Stack several of these glass shelves above your toilet or on a side wall above your sinks to create more space seemingly “out of thin air”.
