Simple Cart

IKEA's might just be one of their most versatile products ever. In the bathroom, use the cart to store towels, nail polish, makeup, and more — and take advantage of the fact that it's mobile.

Drawer Dividers

Drawer dividers simplify your morning makeup search because you can keep your everyday products right in the front. Plus, they'll prevent everything from moving around whenever you open or close the drawer.

Lazy Susan

Instead of storing cleaning products and extra shampoos and creams by lining them up (this creates unsightly clutter!) try adding a to your bathroom closet. Just rotate it around whenever you need to get to something specific, without crashing over every other product in sight.

Wicker Baskets

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.

Shower-Wall Organizer

If your shower doesn't have built-in shelves, a hanging organizer means shampoos and soaps aren't precariously perched on the edge of the tub or windowsill. Bonus: No more mildew buildup at the bottles' bases to scrub away.

Mason Jar Unit

If you're running low on storage space — and a cabinet is out of the question — hang small storage units (like mason jars!) from the walls to hold makeup brushes, cotton balls, and toothbrushes. Attach them to a slab of perfectly distressed wood, or get one .

DIY Labels

As bathroom necessities change and evolve (Band-Aids, razors, and so on), keep 'em organized with these adorably accessorized mason jars.

Double Rod

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.)

Extra Hair Accessories

Rein in hair accessories with repurposed office supplies: A ring clip corrals hair bands; a paper-clip holder minds pins.

Bath-Toy Bag

A laundry lingerie 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 stall so the toys can drip dry.

Extra Cabinetry

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.
