The bathroom is the one room in the house that is often overlooked when it comes to both tidying and organizing. This is because the bathroom isn’t specifically any one person’s room. However, it is easy to organize the bathroom in such a way that will make items easy to locate, identify and assign to each member of the house.

Tips for Keeping Your Bathroom Clutter-Free
The bathroom is the one area of the house that has items belonging specifically to each family member and also the one room of the house that can generate a lot of arguments if items are misplaced or used by the wrong person.
A bathroom caddy is the single most useful item when it comes to organizing the bathroom. More specifically, one bathroom caddy per person is ideal. A bathroom caddy gives room to house all personal items including toothbrushes and other hygienic items that are considered to be personal to each family member.
A bathroom caddy also allows each family member to put in his or her own shampoo and other bathroom essentials. The unauthorized use of these items is probably one of the biggest reasons for family fights, so organizing the bathroom may help to prevent accidental misuse.
You can store the caddies either in the bathroom in a designated area or in each individual’s room so the bathroom itself is free of clutter. In college I shared a suite bathroom with 8 girls so the bathroom itself was empty and we all had individual shower caddies to bring in our supplies for showering or brushing our teeth, etc.
Of course, another reason for organizing the bathroom in this way is that it looks neater. The bathroom then becomes a lot easier to manage. When there is mess, items get lost, damaged or broken and the bathroom is no different in this respect.
