I feel like the one place that gets super disorganized is under the bathroom sink. We tend to throw so many random things in there that don’t really belong underneath the bathroom sink.
We are going to share some ways on how you can organize your bathroom cupboard and items that you can use to organize under your bathroom sink.
What Should I Store Under The Bathroom Sink?
With your bathroom sink, you want to store things that you be commonly using inside your bathroom. Here is a list of items that you can store underneath your bathroom sink.
Storing your cleaning products you use for the bathroom, underneath the bathroom sink can be super convenient when it is time to clean. For example you can store; toilet bowl cleaner, lysol spray, bathtub cleaning, and even glass/window cleaner as well.
Is the bathroom the main area where you style your hair? Keeping your hair products under the bathroom sink will make it easy for you to grab things and keep your bedroom less crowded.
Hair products include; shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, hair spray, gels, and more. If you have drawers under your bathroom sink, this is a great place to keep hair ties, and clips inside.
Not only can you place hair products underneath, but as well as hair tools. The hair tools that you can put store underneath your sink are; straightener, blow dryer, or a curling iron.
Dental Hygiene Products
The bathroom sink is the place where you brush your teeth, so by having all of your dental hygiene products close by will make it easier for you during your morning routine.
In addition, you can store extra dental products underneath the bathroom sink. This could be; extra toothbrushes, toothbrush protectors, toothpaste bottles, floss, and mouthwash.
Skincare Products (only some!)
Other items you can store under the bathroom sink is skincare products. Storing skincare products underneath the bathroom sink is a great place to easily do your skincare routine morning and night.
Although, some skincare products are not meant to be kept in dark places due to potential bacteria growing within your products.
How Do You Maximize Under Sink Storage?
Now that you know what you can store under the bathroom sink. You might be curious to see how you’re very cluttered bathroom cabinet can fit all those things. Here are a few steps on how you can maximize the space underneath the bathroom sink.
One of my favourite things to do to maximize space is declutter! I find that once I go through all the stuff that I have, I am able to see what really needs to there, can we find a new home for that item, or can we donate/throw it away.
I have a great blog post that truly goes into details about decluttering your apartment and small living spaces!
Create a Plan
Based on my previous list of things you can store under the bathroom sink, you can now create a plan of where each item will go underneath the bathroom sink and how everything will fit inside. You want to make sure that you can utilize every single space of your bathroom cabinets.
Now for my favourite part is to organize everything back inside underneath your bathroom sink. This is where you can group your cleaning products together or have a small basket for your hair tools.
You can now look into purchasing organizers to be placed under the bathroom sink. Not sure what to purchase? Down below is a list of items that you can use to organize under your bathroom sink.
Items You Need To Organize Under Your Bathroom Sink
Want to maximize the overall space of your bathroom cabinets? Purchase stackable drawers! Stackable drawers allows you to store more items within a limited space. You can even go a step further and label each drawer and what item belongs inside.
They are two different stackable drawers you can get. The one that is enclosed, to place small items inside. Or the mesh ones where you can place large products on top.
Containers are a great way to place tall products inside. Under my bathroom sink, I use containers to store our bathroom cleaning supplies in.
Down below is a photo of the ones I use in my bathroom. I prefer to use plastic containers due to the fact that they are easy to clean and fits in small bathroom cupboards (like mine!).

Want your bathroom to have an aesthetic look? Grab some clear acrylic lazy susans! This will limit the amount of digging you have to do inside your bathroom cupboard. Having the lazy susan allows to to reach for your products with ease.
Placing hooks on your bathroom cupboard door, can help with hanging hand towels, and cleaning products with placeholders.
Having hooks installed inside your bathroom cupboard can allow you to increase the amount of space you have to use.
Trash Bag Dispenser
Want to make your bathroom trash bags look aesthetically pleasing and organized? Grab a trash bag dispenser. This will help with knowing how much garbage bags you have left before running out.
You can find trash bag dispenser that rest against your bathroom cupboard door.
Glass jars are a great way to keep your bathroom essentials organized in an aesthetic way. You can put; q-tips, cotton balls, and even dental floss sticks. You can find some glass jars that are all glass or ones with wooden lids.

Sometimes we have items inside the bathroom that we don’t want the little ones to reach. Having air tight containers still keeps your under your bathroom sink organize while keeping your children safe.
