We recently finished a rather major remodeling update in our master bath and I am loving the clean uncluttered look of my nearly empty space. But alas, I do have to bring some necessities back in to this room.
I quickly realized as I was carting towels and toiletries back into this space, that because our new cabinetry was configured differently the inserts and bins I had used before weren't going to work. I was going to have to come up with some new ways of organizing.
Of course I started with my own Pinterest board for organizing and was so glad that I had pinned some of these ingenious ideas. Then I thought that it would be fun to share them here on BeColorful.
One of my first areas to address was the issue of hair styling tools.
If you have the space it can be nice to tuck them away in a drawer or cupboard. A heat resistant caddy like this would be great to keep everything contained.
I ultimately ended up purchasing this this wire and acrylic number that I found on Amazon. I use this for just my hairdryer. I put my volumizing spray in the side compartment and a micro fibre hair towel in the front cubby.
In the same cupboard I use this second organizer, also from Amazon, for corralling my combs and assortment of styling brushes. My straightening iron, curling iron, and styling wand fit nicely, and all by themselves, in a shallow drawer
The inside of a cupboard door is great place to gain some storage space.
There are some genius solutions that I discovered on the internet, like this magazine box attached to the inside of a cabinet door. This makes for an easy, accessible and economical place to store a blow dryer.
A shortened over the door pocket cubby would work well for hair sprays, volumizers, hand bands and various accessories.

These flat back cups are another workable option for combs, brushes, or styling sprays.
I've featured these PVC Pipe hangers before but I still think they are incredibly clever.
When I saw these storage bins my first thought was how nice and substantial they looked. This is where pretty meets functional. To find the DIY plans to make your own click here.
If you are quite handy or know someone who is, AND you have the space, then this half wall with built in storage would be a great way to gain some organizational real-estate.
Actually with just a bit of wall space you could add a hanging cabinet, drill a hole for an extension cord, line in with pretty fabric and add some hooks. Then voila! You have an attractive cupboard and more hidden storage.
I am fortunate to have a decent amount of drawer space so drawer inserts are a go to organizational favorite for me. Things are so much easier to find if they have their own place.
These are bamboo but I prefer plastic so I can throw them in the dishwasher.
Although the uncluttered feel of having everything out of sight may be preferred by some, others would rather have it out in the open and within easy reach. If this is you then here are some great easy access thoughts.
A pretty cutlery basket. Just be sure that yours is deep enough and heavy enough to be stable and hold your straightening irons and hair dryer upright.
To create a storage option for virtually nothing you could paint up some empty jars in a pretty coordinating style.
This wall organizer from Pottery Barn Teen is not only attractive but totally functional. I love it paired with the mirror. It's like a stand alone vanity.
There is always a something fun on Etsy. This hanging option is a quick and affordable solution. You can buy yours here.
I liked this handsome counter top style design too.

This option from Home Depot is more elaborate. The flip down front looks neat and tidy when closed but opens up to reveal orderly cord containment and a built in power strip. Nice!

Even after I found a place for my bulkier items I still wanted to corral my bobby pins, hair bands, and clips. Loved this idea of reusing an empty Tic Tac dispenser.
Better yet, I am definitely going to have to hang a magnetic strip inside a door or drawer.
Then again, I could dial that option up a notch and cover the magnetic strip with a pretty paper or fabric like they did here. Adding some knobs for hair bands makes this a pretty perfect problem solver.
Now my mind is swimming with visions of tidy bathroom cupboards. Enough blogging. I'm off to organize.
I hope you found something here that will help you achieve a bit more order in your bath area too.
