Maximum Storage

If you share a small bathroom, consider tiered storage bins and cubbies to keep go-to items close at hand and neatly contained. Spray-paint them a soft pastel color for an on-trend look.

Corral Cosmetics

Acrylic cosmetic organizers are functional and look great. Stack and customize your organizers to make the most of your space. Wrangle makeup brushes in a repurposed glass votive.

Stacked Staples

Go-to toiletry items, like cotton swabs and makeup sponges, are pretty when displayed in stackable glass containers. If you have limited cabinet storage, this is a great solution.

Petite Floral

Fresh flowers are a pretty pick-me-up for any bath vanity. If counter space is limited, place one or two fluffy blooms in a small vase or juice glass for a super-easy petite arrangement.

Mouthwash Upgrade

Who says mouthwash can't be glamorous? A chic decanter and shot glass can instantly update your rinse routine. Scour yard sales and flea markets for elaborate designs at jaw-dropping prices.

Showcase Baubles

Show off your bling by incorporating jewelry into your vanity styling. Place your favorite pieces in a pretty dessert dish or vintage silver so they're ready to slip on at a moment's notice.

Cute Containment

Take towels to the next level with pretty presentation tricks. Tightly rolled towels look chic and sophisticated in a basket or tray. Your guests will appreciate the extra effort.

Time Management

Morning routines can get hectic, so time management is key. An attractive desk clock looks right at home in the bathroom — just make sure its style complements your other countertop accessories.

Soft Lighting

If you have space, a table lamp can add glamour as well as soft, layered lighting to your bathroom; just make sure you have an outlet nearby. If you don't, try placing battery-powered LED string lights into a pretty lantern for a soft glow.

Smart Grouping

Whether you collect beauty products or simply love to create a stylish vignette of your favorite things, give it a neat, cohesive feel by placing items on a tray, placemat or repurposed platter.

Good Vibes

Start your day with some positivity! A meaningful word or affirmation in a simple frame looks great, doesn't take up much room and gets your day off to a fantastic start.

Insta Love

Framed photos of friends and family are a sweet addition to any countertop. If space is tight, stick with Instagram photos in stylish, pint-sized frames.

Coordinated Cover-Up

Keep your bathroom smelling as good as it looks with a coordinating room spray, candle and hand soap. Don't overdo it with too many different scents, though!
