We spent 20 hours researching how to make the most of small bathroom space, speaking with five organizing experts and closely considering over 130 items. Whether you’re looking for clever solutions for towel storage, good ways to keep medicine cabinets tidy, or cabinets and shelves to stow lotions and potions, the 13 items we recommend should help clear clutter and make your tiny bathroom feel more luxurious.

Linus Medicine Cabinet Organizer, best medicine cabinet organizer

Linus Medicine Cabinet Organizer

Best medicine cabinet organizer
This is the best organizer we’ve found for holding toiletries of all sizes. Its narrower dimensions leave more room for storing other bulky items on a medicine cabinet shelf.
We recommend
MagnaPods, cabinet-door storage


Cabinet-door storage
The best small organizer for minimalists, the magnetic MagnaPods stick to a medicine cabinet door and are great for holding makeup, tweezers, or tubes.
Another good choice
InterDesign Kitchen Drawer Organizer 6-piece set, the best drawer organizing set

InterDesign Kitchen Drawer Organizer 6-piece set

The best drawer organizing set
Even though these are kitchen-drawer organizers, we like their height and durability for bathroom drawers. This six-piece set was more durable than other organizers and comes in better sizes.
We recommend
Linus Shallow Drawer Organizers, individual organizers

Linus Shallow Drawer Organizers

Individual organizers
An organizer made from thicker plastic but still shallow enough to fit in most drawers. These are a better choice if you want to hand-select your containers for a perfect fit.
Another good choice
The Container Store Silver 2-Drawer Mesh Organizer, best under-sink drawers

The Container Store Silver 2-Drawer Mesh Organizer

Best under-sink drawers
These are the best-constructed shelves we’ve found. They don’t tip over (like other sets) and come with the option to screw the frame into your vanity for added stability.
We recommend
Umbra Hide ‘n’ Sink Under Sink Caddy, good hair-dryer storage

Umbra Hide ‘n’ Sink Under Sink Caddy

Good hair-dryer storage
This door-mounted caddy is the best solution we’ve found for storing a hair dryer. It also offers a little extra space for toiletries or cleaning supplies.
Another good choice
Simplehuman 10-Liter Profile Step Can, the best bathroom trash can

Simplehuman 10-Liter Profile Step Can

The best bathroom trash can
This good-looking can's pedal and lid are durable and move smoothly. The liner design allows for clean removal of small trash bags or plastic grocery sacks.
We recommend
Simplehuman 6-Liter Semi-Round Step Trash Can, still good, just smaller

Simplehuman 6-Liter Semi-Round Step Trash Can

Still good, just smaller
The smaller Semi-Round may be a better choice, depending on your bathroom’s available space. It’s similarly sturdy, it contains odors well, and it also fits small grocery bags.
Another good choice
Bamboo Over the Toilet Space Saver, the best over-toilet rack

Bamboo Over the Toilet Space Saver

The best over-toilet rack
Over-toilet racks get a bad rap, but this one should keep you happy with its attractive appearance, durable construction, and sliding doors that won’t invade your airspace.
We recommend
Ikea Lillången Cabinet, the best wall-mounted cabinet

Ikea Lillången Cabinet

The best wall-mounted cabinet
The Lillången cabinet stores more than most bathroom cabinets. It will fit rolls of toilet paper and cleaning supplies (although it’s not deep enough for towels).
We recommend
IKEA Grundtal, best shelves for towel storage

IKEA Grundtal

Best shelves for towel storage
The Grundtal shelves are the only ones we found that are multi-functional for stacking or hanging towels that can also be mounted above a door frame.
We recommend
IKEA Rågrund Shelving, shelves for below a pedestal sink

IKEA Rågrund Shelving

Shelves for below a pedestal sink
These triangular shelves are the most creative solution we found for people with open space below their sinks. A pair will hide ugly pipes and take advantage of dead space.
We recommend
IKEA Råskog cart, the best rolling cart

IKEA Råskog cart

The best rolling cart
This rolling cart is sturdier and more affordable than the other cart we considered. Its three deep shelves are great for cleaning supplies and essentials like TP.
We recommend
Greenco Folding Step Stool, best folding stool

Greenco Folding Step Stool

Best folding stool
Folding stools are helpful for giving kids a boost at the sink or reaching the towels on a high shelf. Our pick has the best ratings we’ve found and comes in more colors.
We recommend
Command Large Double Bath Hook, a great adhesive hook

Command Large Double Bath Hook

A great adhesive hook
Command hooks are a great temporary way to keep clutter off the floor without leaving holes in the wall. They’re also good for tile walls or inside the shower where you can’t drill.
We recommend
Home So Suction Cup Hook Holder, a great suction hook

Home So Suction Cup Hook Holder

A great suction hook
If you can’t seem to install command hooks properly, or just don’t like them, the Home So suction hooks are an attractive hook that you can mount inside a shower or on tiled walls for added storage.
We recommend
Spectrum Duchess Over the Door 5-Hook Rack, good over-the-door hooks

Spectrum Duchess Over the Door 5-Hook Rack

Good over-the-door hooks
This rack comes with five hooks and is a great way to take advantage of lost space on the back of a door.
We recommend
The Onsen Bath Towel, a compact and quick-drying towel

The Onsen Bath Towel

A compact and quick-drying towel
This textured towel dries faster and takes up less storage space than any terry towel we tried. It looks luxurious but unfussy, and it’s a third of the price of similar lattice-weave towels.
Another good choice
InterDesign Classico, the best toilet paper stand

InterDesign Classico

The best toilet paper stand
The InterDesign Classico dispenses a roll in use and holds four in storage, making it the highest volume, most functional stand we considered.
