Don’t stress about overthinking how to organize under the bathroom sink! I took my unorganized under the bathroom sink cabinet and turned it into an organzied dream.
Our main bathroom was in need of an overhaul. The sink cabinet was dark and really unorganized. I used baskets to organized under the bathroom sink but it really needed more. Let me walk you through how I organized under our bathroom sink.

How to Organize Under the Bathroom Sink
The main problem was it was hard to find anything. Sure the baskets container certain items but you had to dig and dig before you found what you were looking for. Here are the steps to organized under the bathroom sink.
Step 1: Declutter
First things first, you’ll want to declutter. Go through everything as you remove it from under the sink. Have three boxes and lay them out, side by side. One is for keep, one for toss, and one for donating (hair styling tools, etc.). Make quick decisions as you remove each item. If you have beauty products that were really expensive, but you didn’t like, toss them. If you’re not using them, they’re just taking up space.
Step 2: Clean
Once you have an empty space under your bathroom sink, clean the cabinet to remove dust and any spills. You want to start with a clean space. Clean space helps with a clear mind!
I had already installed contact paper to the bottom of the cabinet. If you don’t have some type of contact paper or protection, I do recommend adding something just in case of a leak.

Step 3: Install an Under Bathroom Sink Organizer
I found an expandable cabinet shelf that fit perfectly under our sink. I installed it and knew there was going to be so much usable space under the bathroom sink.
This is the one I purchased on Amazon. The great thing about this organizer is it’s expandable and the shelves can be added at different heights and widths making this perfect for any sink cabinet.
Step 4: Baskets!
I purchased a few different sizes and shaped baskets to use under the sink. You’ll see small tall and wide baskets. I wanted them see-through so I could see exactly what’s in each basket.
These are the three different type of baskets I purchaed:
Step 5: Organize!
The final step is to group like items together inside those baskets. I have first aid, dental, face, lotion, and common. This will make it easy for you to find what you’re looking for.
The area under your bathroom sink doesn’t have to be a scary place. You can organize the items you need to keep in your bathroom so that the area works for you!
Taking the time to declutter and organize the areas of your home allows you to reclaim your space and utilize it. Don’t let clutter and disorganization overwhelm you. Spending a bit of time each day will allow you to get the home you’ve always wanted in a clean and concise way!
