Bathroom Organisation Ideas.


At this point, I feel like I should probably consider some sort of help group for my organising – I just love sorting! I love displaying my favourite bits and bobs, and I feel content when everything has a place in my house.

One room I always love to keep nice and arranged is my bathroom, as it’s quite a serene place for me. I go here to relax, to pamper – it deserves good storage!
I wanted to introduce some methods of sorting, displaying and organising all your lotions and potions, to inspire you to rearrange and declutter this sleepy Sunday.

I’m all for cute baskets, they’re the most effortless way of keeping everything together. I am a metallic wire basket kinda girl, and I snapped up the above in H&M. If you find these aren’t what you’re looking for, go for simple rattan or wicker baskets for a similar vibe.
I’ve organised mine by brand, simply because I’m quite particular about these things – but mainly because I thought it looked pretty! I also organise by type, so body items in one, hair treats in another. Easy peasy!

Candle jars are a must in any bathroom, I feel – I love cleaning out finished Diptyque or Jo Malone jars (softens the blow!) and filling them with all sorts of items. Currently sitting on my bathroom sink is a trio of Diptyque glasses, filled with daily essentials. I’ve packed in cotton pads and buds – it’s such a pretty way to store these otherwise boring everyday items.


Nothing is safe from my sorting ways! I recommend thinking outside of the box when it comes to this sort of thing – terrariums, pretty glasses, plant pots, bowls… they all make great storage solutions for items.
Turn a ring dish in to a holder for hair pins, store your Lush soaps in a gold swan (another H&M find) or stack up cotton pads in an old pot. It keeps things interesting.

Another storage item you see a lot of in my home is trays – I put ’em everywhere! I just find that they’re such a simple but chic way of keeping everything together. Right now I’m using this marble tray to keep all of my skincare products in one place – it sits on my sink nicely and looks super neat. People will see your moisturiser sitting on a tray in your bathroom and they’ll think “yeah, she has her shit together”. That’s the power of a good tray, my friends.


Drawer Dividers
When all else fails, head to MUJI. These simple (and stackable! WIN) drawer dividers aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing additions, but they are so practical. The bottom drawer of my bathroom cabinet is filled with these no-frills holders.
This time I’ve organised all my products in to their own little sections – so you can see conditioners at the top there, underneath is pedi products, and to the back is bodycare. It makes life a whole lot easier when it comes to finding the right products, let me tell you.

An organised bathroom is the key to a happy life. Probably. Will you be having a reshuffle today?

  • Definitely in the spring cleaning mood too! I found straight dupes for the Muji drawers at a Japanese dollar store called Daiso. Great price for the same thing! But this gives me inspiration to take another crack at my drawers tomorrow. Always love these types of posts, your interiors are always so dreamy Kate!

  • Haha I’m like that too Kate, so don’t worry – organizing just makes me feel so happy 😀 Loving the way you organized everything! <3

    If you don't mind me asking, how do you clean out the candle jars after you're finished? I recently just finished some of my candles, but there's still a bit of the wax leftover in the bottom of the jar (but I can't burn it anymore). I'm not sure how to go about cleaning it out. Any suggestions? 🙂

    XO, Elizabeth

    When I discovered I could use candle holder jars to organize my art supplies, I was a mad woman on a mission! It’s so much fun coming up with creative ways to store items 💗

  • Gorgeous ideas! I definitely need to sort out my bathroom! <3

    I use a lot of old candle containers to help me organize. Some of the candles at anthropology are too cute to throw out. I always clean them up and put hair ties and things in them!


  • Love the idea of using ornaments. It definitely adds interest in the bathroom. I’m a fan of using candle jars and trays in my bathroom 🙂 x

  • Very helpful post Kate! I wish I had some of your love for organizing. Not taking the time to sort everything and make everything neat is probably one of my biggest weaknesses. Great ideas! I like how you kept a gold theme.

  • The Muji drawers are right up my alley.

  • Rai

    Bathroom organization goals tbh
    I would’ve never thought to use ornaments to hold things but that swan looks awesome as a holder while giving you something new to look at great idea!
    Love all these ideas, I really need to start organizing my products so I know where everything is haha!
