In this post, we’ll explore the benefits of minimalist bathroom storage and provide some tips for achieving this look in your own home.
Welcome to my Year Long Thorough Declutter Series. We declutter 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. Each day we do a daily task based on the room we are working on.

Currently we are working on decluttering the 1st bathroom. The daily task for today, April 20, 2023, is to begin decluttering your sample products. Remember, we are focusing on just the 1st Bathroom area, so don’t declutter your whole house. We will cover each room separately.
Benefits of Minimalist Bathroom Storage
- Saves Space – One of the biggest benefits of minimalist bathroom storage is that it saves space. By removing unnecessary items and using streamlined storage solutions, you can free up valuable real estate in your bathroom.
- Creates a Calming Atmosphere – When you’re surrounded by clutter, it can be difficult to relax and unwind. Minimalist bathroom storage creates a calming atmosphere, making it easier to de-stress after a long day.
- Easier to Clean – Cleaning a cluttered bathroom can be a daunting task. With minimalist storage solutions, you’ll have fewer items to clean around, making it easier to keep your bathroom looking tidy.
Tips for Achieving Minimalist Bathroom Storage
- Declutter Your Space – Before you can start organizing your bathroom, you need to declutter. Get rid of any expired products, duplicates, or items you no longer use. Only keep the essentials.
- Use Vertical Space – When you’re working with a small bathroom, it’s important to make use of every inch of space. Consider adding shelves or installing a tall, narrow cabinet to maximize vertical space.
- Utilize Drawer Organizers – Drawers can quickly become a jumbled mess if they’re not organized. Invest in some drawer organizers to keep your items in place and easy to find.
- Choose Multi-Functional Pieces – Instead of having several separate storage solutions, choose multi-functional pieces that can serve multiple purposes. For example, a towel rack with built-in shelves can hold your towels and toiletries in one spot.
- Keep it Simple – The key to minimalist bathroom storage is simplicity. Stick to a neutral color palette and clean lines. Avoid cluttering your space with too many decorations or unnecessary items.
By following these tips, you can create a minimalist bathroom storage solution that’s both functional and stylish. Not only will it save space and make cleaning easier, but it will also create a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Try it out for yourself and see how a little organization can transform your bathroom.
I personally have a bad habit of placing items that need to be donated in the laundry room behind the door. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Wrong. Delaying decisions means we still need to declutter.
Maybe you have a habit of delaying decisions, too. Let’s decide today where your decluttered items need to go. Do they need to be donated? Disposed of? Don’t delay that decision any longer. If they need to be donated, sort and put them in your vehicle. Then, make a note in your calendar to drop them off at your favorite charity.
As you are decluttering your items, I want you to try not to just move them to another room. You may be tempted to do that. However, resist the urge to keep everything. Decluttering means we actually part with these items. Otherwise, assign those items a permanent home where you can best utilize them.
Minimalist Bathroom Storage Tips
1.Only spend time on your specific daily task.
2.Do not get side-tracked or distracted.
3.Work within a time of day that you have the most energy and stamina. This is one of the most useful declutter motivation tips. Listen to your body and work at decluttering when you feel the most alert and energized.
4.Avoid thinking too long about whether to keep or discard an item. This is one specific way for How to Be Ruthless When Decluttering.
5.Avoid cleaning during your declutter. The goal is to purge the dead weight. Getting rid of the clutter is your priority. Cleaning can be accomplished later. Read on for more declutter motivation tips and my room specific deep clean checklist, though, as you will begin cleaning after your declutter.
Steps to Declutter Your Bathroom: Minimalist Bathroom Storage
1. boxes -preferably ones you can donate (Avoid plastic storage bins because you may be tempted to just store the items and not part with them.)
2. sturdy trash bags
3. marker/pen to label boxes
Decluttering Tip: Avoid using storage bins to declutter. Storage bins tend to tell your brain to “store” the items for later. That is just delaying decisions. If you aren’t getting rid of items when you declutter, you are not truly decluttering. This is why I recommend a trash bag, also. A trash bag tells your brain to “trash” the item.
Obviously, recycle if you have that option. The boxes you use should be ones you are willing to part with, so I recommend sturdy cardboard boxes. As to donations, there are many charities that will come pick up your items for you at your home.
I use one in particular where you can book an appointment for pick-up online. This is so convenient, as it saves you the hassle of hauling stuff away yourself. Scheduling that pick-up also motivates you to declutter by a certain date.
Minimalist Bathroom Storage: How to Clean Out Your Bathroom
1. Start by eliminating trash first- use a sturdy trash bag
2. Sort items by category if needed so you can see what you have
3.Get rid of items that don’t work or that work poorly, expired items, anything you don’t love, anything that you’ll never use again
4. Box up the donations and trash/recycle the rest
5.Select a charity to donate your items and schedule the pick-up if that is an option
