Have you ever gone to the bathroom at someone elses house and run out of toilet paper? I’ve had this happen and I’ve searched desperately through their cabinets, looking for more toilet paper, all while not being able to move off the toilet! I’ve had to learn, the hard way, to make sure there’s always enough TP on the roll before sitting down, because some people don’t store their TP in the bathroom!
Today I’m going to show you how I have our guest/my girl’s bathroom cabinets organized, so that even as a guest you can find what you are looking for (especially the toilet paper).
Last year I made over the bathroom, and in the process I decided to take the cabinet doors off and replace them with these baskets.
The baskets have made keeping the bathroom organized so much easier and the labels make it easy to find what you’re looking for! In the first basket (the one closest to the toilet) is where I keep the toilet paper. There are always lots of rolls in here so my guests, or daughters, never have to sit on the toilet and yell for me to bring them TP.
Below that basket is where I keep Malea’s bath toys, lotion and spray bottle. I like it in the basket because it’s “hidden” and the counters don’t look messy and cluttered.
The baskets on the left side are a little harder to access because I have to move the bench to get to them. So in these baskets I store things that we don’t need to get to very often. The top basket stores all of our guest/travel toiletries and they are organized by shampoo, conditioner, body wash and then all the extra fun stuff you get from hotels, like q-tips and shower caps.
The basket below that is where I store tissue boxes.
I also use the cabinet below the sink to store items, but they are things that only I need to get to, extra TP rolls, cleaning supplies and Malea’s towels. Items under the sink are also organized into small baskets, which makes it easier for me to find them.
Now that you’ve seen my bathroom cabinets, I’d love to hear how you organize yours. Do you use baskets (are you addicted to them like I am?) or do you have everything stored neatly in the cupboards? Most importantly, is your toilet paper easily accessible for your guests when they run out? 🙂
I love that you removed the doors! I’m going to have to see if I can copy your idea & remove my drawers–it would look so much cleaner (and besided, they’re not very nice looking)
Great idea to remove the doors. I am glad someone else also stores TP in the bathroomm like me. I also discreetly store extra feminine products in our guest bathroom in case of emergencies! Shh:)
That’s a good idea, I should do that too! Maybe add them in the TP basket.
where did you get the white plastic baskets under the sink?
I think I got those from the 99 Cent store.
I use alot of baskets. I painted a rectangle basket yellow to match my accent color of my bathroom and put it on the shelves above the toilet. That’s where I keep extra toilet paper. I also have a basket for femine products, air freshner, extra soap, etc.. Love baskets!!
How are those labels attached to those baskets? I have some woven baskets like that and I can’t quite figure out how to get a label on them.
I used the 3M double sided mounting tape: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00004Z4A8/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B00004Z4A8&linkCode=as2&tag=askan01-20. That stuff is awesome, I used it for tons of stuff.
