When Marie Kondo’s book The Life-Changing Magic Of Tidying Up was released a few years back, I was intrigued. We have lived in our home for so long that things just piled up. It’s was easy to ignore it while I was busy raising kids and all that goes with that stage of life.
But now, with our recent renovations, I’ve been tidying up and organizing every room.
I started this process first with a deep kitchen organization project. and the first thing on the list was a major purging. For example, we switched from plastic food containers to these stackable glass containers.
Budget-Friendly Storage Ideas for the Bathroom
In Marie Kondo’s book and now Netflix show, she speaks of “sparking joy”.Sparking joy is a concept that means keeping only what you love.
Although this approach works great for almost every room, there’re a couple of exceptions. The bathroom is one of them!
Organizing this essential room is more about keeping what you need for functional daily living and there’s no room for joy sparkles. Bathroom storage baskets are one of my favorite ways to keep everything neatly organized.
For example, the baskets above were inexpensive and still gave me tons of storage space to work with. Now, these baskets are filled with fluffy towels and my makeup essentials.
We have no linen closet near the bathroom so, we designed this hidden shelving that is tucked behind the bathroom door. When the door is open you don’t see the bathroom storage baskets and when it’s closed, you have easy access to everything!
This bathroom storage idea is a great solution for small bathrooms and larger ones too. These baskets are pretty traditional but I also love to get crafty and have a few more ideas to hack in mind.
And with that in mind, I’m sharing 20 must-see DIY storage ideas to organize your bathroom today and help get you to start tidying up.
