Organize all your cosmetics

To make it easier to find a particular shampoo (or anything else for cosmetics), you need to make a good organization of all cosmetics. Keep all cosmetic products in one part of the shelf for washing and maintaining your hair, such as shampoos, conditioners, sprays, creams, hair masks, and the like. Dedicate to the other part of the shelf for face care cosmetics. That includes all face masks, creams, tonics, makeup removers, etc. All body care cosmetics, such as shower gels, body lotions, body oils, or shower oils, as well as massage oils, shaving foam should have its corner on one of the shelves. So when cosmetics are organized, it will be more comfortable and faster for you to get into your bathroom and find what you are looking for. You can also do sub-organization and arrange each separately based on the sizes or colors of those cosmetic packaging.

Use different jars

Using jars for organizational purposes is a great idea, practical, and will also add to the beauty of the bathroom. You can use different jars or pots, or they can all be the same. You can buy the most commonly transparent glass jars with glass lids, and you can also find decorative jars that will fit into the entire bathroom décor. There is a massive selection on the market today, so you will surely find what you like. You can put inside the cotton wool, ear sticks, paper wipes, and all the little things that get lost in the jars, like bobby pins. The jars on the shelf in the bathroom can look very modern.


Who says that there are no needs for the plants in the bathroom? Of course, no one should not overdo it, but one to two plants on the shelves can beautify your bathroom. As we already know, plants contribute to the formation of oxygen, which will make it easier for you to feel more relaxed in your bathroom. If there is enough space on your shelves, add one or two plants to see what effect it leaves. It is not the worst thing in the world, even if the plants are plastic.

Organize all your makeup

You need to arrange all your makeup as well as brushes, not only for more delightful decoration and easier handling but also for your health.

Accordingly, you never leave your makeup just anywhere in your bathroom, as you will put it on your face at some point. Take one bag and put all the products inside, and buy some plastic or glass vase or container in which you will put all the brushes.

And where is the toilet paper

No one, no one really goes to the store and buys one roll of paper. People usually buy a pack of ten or more rolls of paper and then come to their house and don’t know where to put it. For better decoration and easier organization, you can always buy metal nets and put away your toilet paper there. Of course, if you have enough space on your shelves.
