Form + Function: Bathroom Storage

When it comes to a home that feels designed and curated, it is all in the details. Adding personality when it comes to things as simple as how you store your bathroom toiletries can have a real impact on how your space feels. Be intentional, I always ask these two questions. 1. Is it functional and organized? 2. Does it look good?

The Essentials

The first step in getting organized in both the bathroom and the kitchen often involves taking items out of their packaging. Getting items out of their original packaging allows you to store them in a way that is easily accessible, uniform and maybe most important, beautiful!

We all have items like cotton swabs, cotton pads and floss sticks in our bathroom. We need to access them everyday so it is important that they are stored within reach.

When choosing your containers you can go the traditional route and purchase items specifically created to store these items, or my personal favorite, use things you already have around the house.

This stackable glass container set from Target is ideal for open surfaces. It consolidates while separating your items. You can clearly see what is where, while taking up minimal counter space and keeping all your items dust free.

If you know me, you know I used to have a very slight obsession with Diptyque candles. I kept a few of the empty jars around because I love the classic packaging. These fit perfecting in most bathroom mirror cabinets and have the added bonus of being recycled! Yay for producing less waste.

Crystal Glasses

Lastly, these beautiful crystal glasses were a gift from one of my colleagues, meant for cognac and brandy, which I rarely drink. There are gorgeous but weren’t getting much use. I decided to try them out for bathroom storage, they are yet another pretty option.


All of these work well because they are see through and take up less space than the original packaging.
