When I go into my master or guest bath I have a normal expectation that everything I need to manage and use that space is in there.

From the products I use for personal hygiene to the products I need to clean the bathrooms, I need it all to fit into that space.

It’s especially challenging to get what you need in there without making it feel cluttered. While it’s a challenge, it’s definitely possible.

Today I’m going to show you three things you should keep stocked in your bathroom and ways to group, display and store those them. At the very end of this post, I’ll show you a fun way to personalize a bath tissue basket.

 Hand soap and Air Freshener. 

You should keep at least one extra bottle of each of these somewhere in your bathroom. Hand soap is a necessity and so is air freshener when guests are over. Everyone needs to wash their hands before meals and after using the restroom. It can be awkward if you have guests and don’t have them out and available. By using small containers, you can easily keep a few extra hand soaps and air fresheners at arms reach.

Feminine Hygiene Items

I like to keep these in a small plastic container in the vanity drawer. It’s small enough to set on the counter when guest are over and stays nice and neat for when I need them.

Extra Bath Soap and Linen 

A simple way to display them neatly is in large glass jars. These jars are for pillar candles but work perfectly to store fresh linen, loofahs and soap for yourself or guests.

If you’re like me and want them out where guest can see them, open storage works best.

My husband likes to keep our bathroom stocked with Quilted Northern® Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch. We keep three or four rolls in the bathroom and a Mega Pack or two in our store room. In our master bath, I keep bathe tissue in a woven basket, but in the guest bath, I use a tasseled bath tissue basket to pile them in. The Mega packs have 9 rolls that are 4x’s bigger than the regular rolls. These big packs help ensure I always have extra bath tissue around for guests.

Instructions

1. I begin by wrapping yarn around a piece of cardboard until I achieved the thickness I want. 

2. Then using a length of yarn longer than my tassel, I threaded it through the tassel horizontally and tie off the top. This will be what I’ll use to hang my tassel from my bathroom tissue storage basket. After tying to top, I cut the bottom of the tassel.

5. Next, I use another piece of yarn and wrap it vertically around the top about and inch below where I threaded my first piece through. I wrap it around about two times, then knot it. Take the remaining length of yarn and smooth it into your tassel.

3. Next, I trim the bottom of my tassel to make it even. I decided to embellish my tassels with bling rope for some sparkle before attaching them to my basket.

  1. The two major considerations when picking a style of shower is looks and price. Elegant tile and graceful glass designs you find in magazines are stunning and expensive.

  2. What a great idea for a toilet paper display. I love dashes of color in the bathroom and this one works.

  3. I love the basket DIY. You could use that on any basket! We keep out toliet paper under the sink, we have a very small bathroom, no room for such a cute basket!

  4. All of our bathrooms are tiny and the one that isnt has zero storage so its always a struggle. Love this post for inspiration!

  5. This is such a cute basket! I love how easy and simple it is to create! We keep the extra rolls down stairs in a storage room.

  6. I keep extra rolls in my pantry closet–should probably move them to the closet next to the bathroom. Space is at such a premium in this apartment!

  7. I'm loving the way you organize! The colorful tassels are really cute too. The basket looks great!

  8. I love these ideas!!! I hate having stockpile out in the open in the house especially the bathroom. This would be cute for my kids bathroom.

  9. What a simple but creative way to decorate a basket. I need to do some decorating on my kids bathroom this might be the trick.

  10. Those yarn tassles are adorable! I hide my toilet paper in the closet as well. But that's because my bathroom is SO tiny, there's no space for it to hang out like that!

  11. Well, I just store my toilet paper in the bathroom closet. Haha. I suppose it's not a bad idea to keep a big basket of it right by the toilet though – no risk of ever running out!
