An untidy bathroom can make it challenging to get ready. In contrast, an organized bathroom can keep you sane and happy.

Sadly, with so much stuff, it's hard to know where to start. Wouldn't it be nice to organize your bathroom in such a way so it can store all the essentials and then some?

Well, you're in luck because we have five bathroom design secrets for you to follow.

Apply these tips to maximize your space and create a sparkling bathroom!

1. Get a Corner Shower Caddy With Several Shelves

There are hanging shower caddies with multiple shelves, but those can get heavy.

You wouldn't want the showerhead breaking off!

Instead, invest in a corner shelf organizer to make use of vertical shower storage. 

A corner shower caddy makes it easy to store facial wash, shampoo, and body wash without running out of space. But don't overdo it just because you have more room!

If you have a roommate, you can split the space instead of cluttering up the corners in the shower. 

A corner shower caddy solves your space dilemma and keeps things organized. It sounds like a win-win to us!

2. Mount Baskets on the Wall

Even if you have a hutch over the toilet, another way to create more space is by mounting baskets on the wall.

This clever organization solution holds bulkier items. Add items such as toilet paper and q-tip boxes.

But, before you pile on bulky items, make sure you have the right type of nails in the wall to support it. The last thing you want is for your baskets and supplies to come tumbling down! 

Depending on how much wall space you have to spare, consider lining up three baskets. You can align them vertically or horizontally.

See which looks the best and plan out the layout based on the decor that's already in there. Or, if you haven't decorated the bathroom yet, mount the baskets first. 

To stylize your baskets, get some in wicker. They'll stand out and look great in your bathroom!

3. Store Fewer Items on the Counter

To keep clutter at bay, have minimal items on the bathroom countertop. Although it's tempting to leave out all sorts of things (such as lotion), find another place for them.

If you like to have everything within reach, it'll be tough deciding. But, to spare your bathroom from the mess, only select a few necessities to have on the counter.

We recommend only keeping a few items you use every day, such as a toothbrush holder and hand soap.

Other things can go in a drawer or medicine cabinet. Think about where it's most convenient to find items you need often.

Bathroom items that you use daily, such as facial cleanser or a hairbrush, should be in a drawer near the counter.

As for things you don't use as often, store them in an open container under the counter.

If you end up using something a lot more than you thought, you can always add it to your counter collection.

Things may pile up again in the future. If that happens, start at square one and find a home for everything that's taking over the counter.

4. Coordinate Soap and Shampoo Bottles

If you tend to have three bottles of everything in the shower, there's a unique approach you can try.

To keep shampoo and soap bottles at bay, coordinate your containers.

Keep current shampoo and soap in matching containers. If you like having everything match, then you'll love this solution.

If matching isn't your thing, remember this will prevent a cluttered looking bathroom.

The bottles can match in shape, size, and color. If you'd instead like to stick with one size or color, that works too. It all depends on your preference.

Focus on only using what's in the current bottles, and you shouldn't feel the need to buy more. When you run out of your favorite shampoo, it’ll be easy to pour more in a matching bottle.

The bottles can consist of the essentials such as shampoo, conditioner, and soap. Oh, and you may use face wash too.

If you go with color-coordinated bottles, have fun with it! Select a color that matches the rest of your bathroom's decor and enjoy how everything comes together.

5. Keep After the Shower

Of course, you want your bathroom design to look appealing. You can ensure your bathroom looks attractive by cleaning things, such as the shower.

Stay on top of the shower to keep your bathroom looking clean and inviting. You can cover up the mess with a shower curtain, but eventually, you're going to have to deal with it.

There are a few things you can do to make cleaning the shower easier. Are there glass panels? If there are, make the shower shine by squeegeeing them every time you shower.

And, remember to clean inside the tub and shower to prevent soap buildup.

So that you don't forget to clean the shower regularly, set up a cleaning schedule. After you decide on one, put it on a dry erase board in the bathroom.

Or, if you have a cleaning schedule in the kitchen, add the shower to the list.

It's easy to forget to clean the shower, but the problem is the longer you wait, the more residue builds up.

To prevent soap buildup, decide on how often to clean it. Moving forward, stick to your plan. It's up to you to make sure the bathroom will look sparkly clean, not only in the shower but as a whole!
