Tips to keep your bathroom clear

Traditionally, the bathroom is one of the smallest rooms in the house. Whether this is because its purpose is purely functional as opposed to somewhere people tend to spend time or it is simply the case that other rooms require more space, making the most of your area is essential.

However, this can sometimes be easier said than done, especially when you consider how easy it is for your bathroom to become cluttered. Obviously, this depends on the person or people living in the property - but with bath products, towels, personal hygiene objects and even potential reading material all finding their place somewhere within these four walls, it doesn't take long before a tidy-around is required.

It's not an ideal situation - a small room filled with essentials will only make the space feel even more enclosed. When surface area is at a premium as it is, the last thing you want to do is fill it with odds and ends.

Fortunately, there's plenty you can do to stop this from happening - and the best thing is, it doesn't require you to completely redesign your bathroom and start from scratch. Here are our top tips for keeping your bathroom clean and tidy.

The shower

Whether you have a stand-alone shower or a unit that's mounted over your bath, ensuring this area of your bathroom remains spick-and-span can be a tricky task.

This is mainly down to all of the various bottles likely to congregate here. Shampoos, shower gels, conditioners, bubble bath - the list goes on.

At The Shower Doctor, we offer a range of shower tidys to help to tackle this problem. These come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can choose what suits your own specific needs. 

The way they can be installed also differs depending on the model, with some hanging over the top of the shower door or from the showerhead itself. Others can be attached to the wall, either using plugs and screws or via suction pads.

You shouldn't be worrying over if the tidy will mess up the look of your bathroom, either - with models coming in colours and designs to suit all tastes.

Check our selection out! It's one of the largest around and our prices have proven to be difficult to beat.

The sink

Toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap and mouthwash are likely to be the main culprits when it comes to causing clutter in this part of the bathroom.

One of the main problems here is that they're all essentials that you'll be using on a (hopefully!) regular basis - so they need to be accessible, yet ideally out of sight.

The solution? Step forward the bathroom cabinet. We offer a variety of these handy storage units, with a range capable of suiting any style and size of bathroom. One of the best aspects of these cabinets is that many offer extra functionality in the form of a mirror - so you don't have to lose out on extra wall space by hanging one up somewhere else for your shaving, hairstyling or make-up needs.

Our designs are all aesthetically pleasing, as well - meaning installing a cabinet in your bathroom can actually complement the overall appearance and feel of the room.

Regardless of whether your walls are plastered, tiled or wallpapered, installing these storage units is relatively straightforward as long as you possess basic DIY skills.

However, if you decide that a bathroom cabinet isn't your thing, there are still other options available. A glass shelf could be a classy addition above the sink, relieving the area around your taps of messy containers and giving you a bit of extra surface space to play with.


While it may be tempting to just hang towels over the edge of the sink or the bath, it doesn't exactly scream tidiness when you first walk into the bathroom and are greeted by this unruly sight.

The answer here is racks, rails and rings. All three are easy to install and ensure your towels will no longer cling onto that much-needed surface space. Instead, they can be organised neatly around wall space that would otherwise go unused.

One alternative to having a wall rack is to opt for a floor rack. However, if floor space is at a premium, then the former may be the preferred choice.

Odds and ends

A strange aspect of the bathroom is the wide array of random items that often end up in there. It's an annoying aspect as well, as this can easily lead to a mess that isn't easy to keep a lid on, as there isn't really an allocated place for many of the appliances and objects that appear.

Help is at hand here though, with The Shower Doctor offering several different means of storage that can be attached to your bathroom walls. For example, our hair dryer holders only require basic tools for installation and offer a sleek and stylish alternative to leaving it on the floor or on top of the toilet cistern.

There are plenty of tools out there to help make it easier to keep your bathroom tidy - if you can't find what you need on our website, use your imagination!
