Organizing Small Apartment Bathroom

If you are renting your apartment or house and the bathroom is tiny, some products can use every square inch without damage to the walls or floors. You may stand in it and think, “no way anything is fitting in here,” but with some creativity, you will be amazed. As many people downsize their homes, trying to get all our creature comforts into smaller spaces can be challenging but not impossible.

Many landlords will let you paint but don’t want damage to the walls other than a few picture hooks. So, if you have a small apartment bathroom, check out these ideas to make your space comfortable and useful and a great way to keep bathroom supplies where they belong and not in other rooms. This could be a serious issue if you are in there and run out of toilet paper!

Pedestal Sink Storage – Portable

Depending on your budget, you could temporarily attach a sink skirt to hide toilet paper rolls or other supplies. You could make this yourself or purchase skirts at department stores or online and create a color scheme with nice fabrics. But this other option is a great way to gain some storage and looks quite cool. An instant cabinet with doors to hide everything.

It doesn’t harm the walls or floors as it is temporary. But it would be perfect for any bathroom with a pedestal sink. As cute as these styles of sinks are, they are not user-friendly regarding valuable storage space. Vanity has always been a good use of space, but if your apartment has a pedestal style, consider this idea of an instant under-the-sink cabinet that can house many of your items.

Shower Curtain with Pockets

Maximizing limited space in your bathroom can be challenging. But it doesn’t have to be with a shower curtain with pockets! This innovative product is designed to keep your bathroom clutter-free and organized by providing convenient storage for your shower essentials.

Mesh pockets line the entire length of the curtain, offering ample space to hold shampoo, conditioner, soap, razors, sponges, and even your kids’ bath toys. You’ll never have to worry about searching for items or having them cluttered around the edges of your bathtub again.

These shower curtains with pockets are especially useful for small bathrooms, as they eliminate the need for a bulky storage pole with shelves. And even if you have a larger bathroom, they are still a practical and stylish addition to your shower area.

Not only are they functional, but they also add a touch of style to your bathroom decor. You can choose from various colors and designs to match your bathroom theme. Plus, since they are made of durable, waterproof materials, you won’t have to worry about mold or mildew buildup.

Beside the Toilet Floor Cabinet – Portable

This type of cabinet is designed to be compact and versatile, making it an excellent choice for storing all kinds of items. With this cabinet, you can keep rolls of toilet paper, cleaning products, or other necessities close at hand.

This cabinet is even better because it is portable, meaning you can move it around as needed. You can also use it to hold spare towels, washcloths, or other bathroom linens. Additionally, since it is small and fits neatly beside the toilet, it takes up very little space in your bathroom while providing ample storage.

One of the best things about a beside-the-toilet floor cabinet is that it allows you to organize your bathroom essentials in a way that makes sense. By keeping everything in one place, you can easily find what you need when you need it. Plus, having a designated storage spot can help keep your bathroom looking neat and tidy.

When choosing a beside-the-toilet floor cabinet, consider the size and style that will work best for your bathroom. Look for a cabinet that fits your decor and has enough storage space to accommodate your needs. With the right cabinet in place, you can create a more functional and organized bathroom that meets all your storage needs.

Over the Toilet Storage Shelves – Portable

The space over the toilet is always a great place to add shelves or a built-in cabinet, but if you are renting your space, you need something that will give you that same storage but in a more portable fashion that does not cause any damage to walls or floors or plumbing.

You can get simple shelves, but I thought this one looked elegant and had a little closed-door space to store personal items. You can fit a lot of things on these shelving units. If you could get this over to the toilet storage and the other items above, your tiny bathroom storage would be taken care of. It is amazing how much you can squeeze into a tiny space without looking cluttered.

Over the Door Storage Baskets

If your tiny bathroom has a solid door, you could use the back of it once closed. Many people will put hooks here for their robes or a towel, but if you get this style of over-the-door baskets, you can store almost everything you need to prepare for work. One basket could be for makeup and another for hair supplies. This style has 6 available baskets, which is plenty of storage.

This is a great way to take advantage of the space behind the door. They don’t harm the door as they fit quite well in the space between the door and the jamb and can be taken down and moved with you if you leave.

Don’t Forget the Dollar Store for Ideas

If your budget is very tight, there are other ways to organize a small apartment bathroom to look stylish yet functional. You can get stackable baskets to store towels or a set of portable drawers for smaller items such as makeup and hair supplies. If there is a small vanity in your space, you could organize it with a vanity carousel to house everything you need.

Just figure out what is bothering you the most regarding lack of storage, and then take a trip to the store and go up and down the aisles and see what fits. They have all kinds of containers that could be retrofitted for a bathroom. I find the office section of a dollar store is filled with many storage container ideas that could work for any room. You can get little containers that can fit in drawers as well to separate items so nothing gets tangled.

Thrift Stores

This can be another great place to check out for some second-hand ideas for storing all kinds of items in your place. It is worth looking at small drawer sets or baskets you could repaint and repurpose. It all depends on just how tiny that space is.

Organizing a tiny bathroom doesn’t have to be a huge task, but it wouldn’t hurt to sort it out first. Are there products that you could throw out? Do you replace the shampoo but leave the empty bottle kicking around? Maybe do a little “purge” and get to know what you own and need storing, then get creative.
