In smaller rooms within your home, it can be hard to keep things looking as organized as you'd like. The bathroom can be a cramped and crowded area, and with so many things in such a small space it can be difficult to effectively store items and still keep the room looking neat.

Cabinets and counter space can fill up fast in the bathroom. Odds are good that these sections of your bathroom are already full of items that you need to keep handy. So how do you make enough room for everything and still keep things looking neat?

Utilizing the shelving in your bathroom is one way that you can store and organize the items in this room. By using shelves, you can place things out of the way but still keep them easily in reach if you need them.

There are many ways to organize bathroom shelves. One idea is to buy small containers, bins, or baskets to place smaller objects in. You can hide clutter this way and keep the room looking organized. You may even want to label these containers so you know what is in them without digging through them all the time. You can also store towels, toilet paper, and other bathroom essentials on the shelves in your bathroom.

So what if your bathroom doesn't have any shelves? There are some simple ways to add shelving to your bathroom. One of the best ways is to buy an over-the-toilet shelf. Installing a shelf like this gives you the shelves you need without taking up a lot of space or getting in the way. These shelves tend to be simple to put together and work well in a cramped bathroom. If your bathroom is a little larger, you might be able to fit a regular shelf or a corner shelf in there to use for storage, organization, or decoration. You can also place small shelves on your counter to create more space in this area. One more option is to put shelves on your wall. Although these shelves may not hold a lot, they add a decorative flair to the room.

With the help of shelving, you can achieve an organized and polished look in your bathroom. Instead of shoving everything under the sink or leaving items out on the counter, you can give each item in your bathroom a place of its own.

This tip is perfect for me! Where I live, we have little dinky bathrooms---rivalling a postage stamp in size. Putting shelves over the loo would be the ideal situation. I can see it now: less jumble in the vanity cabinet because it's so crowded with my towels, extra bottles of shampoo & conditioner, toilet paper and so forth. Thanks! (-:
