Bathroom Storage and Organizing Ideas
Does the idea of a functional and orderly WC feel like a pipe dream? Don’t throw in the towel. Clutter coach Chip Cordelli is here to help.
Inside the Cabinet
Corner the Enemy
A tiered triangular shelf (Ragrund shelf, $40, ikea.com for stores) sidesteps the plumbing that has always made this spot a disaster while giving a home to spare toiletries. (Keep
a bottle of all-purpose cleaner tucked here as well.) Another smart option: a roll-out under-sink drawer ($75, bedbathandbeyond.com) cleverly designed to glide right past pipes.
Boost the Bottom Line
Add pizzazz with nonadhesive shelf paper. (Avoid stick-on papers; glue plus humidity can attract pests.) It will also eliminate scrubbing hard-to-reach nooks: When gunk accumulates, just swap in a fresh sheet. (Adana shelf paper, $38 for a six-foot roll, hammocksandhightea.com.)
