A new year brings a fresh new perspective to our homes and a whole new opportunity to organize and get our spaces in order. A place that always seems to need a little more organization is our bathrooms. Today I’m going to show you a few ways to make your bathrooms more stylish and functional.
Our master bathroom is a decent size and is quite functional if a little dated. Mr. Ethereal repaired a crack in the shower that we adopted when we bought the house last spring, and until we can afford to remodel, everything works for now.
The vanity is large and has his and hers cabinets connected with a vanity space in between. Perfect for a family 24 years ago, but I personally don’t need a separate vanity for putting on makeup. When we do remodel, I’d like more cabinet space vertically in between both sides of the vanity somehow.
The original in-wall medicine cabinets were taken out sometime during the past two decades. Everything has to be stored in the two cabinets down below or in the small over-toilet cabinet in the separate water closet area.
Quick vignette and storage fix
To help create a little more “storage” I brought in two vintage silver trays to hold all of our everyday toiletry items. The photograph on the left shows Mr. Ethereal’s shaving and hair products. The righthand photo shows the tray as it is now decorated.
As I was unpacking things from our move I found this antique shaving mug I’d bought several years ago and had forgotten about. It is perfect to hold all of his newer and older shavers!
I love taking something old and updating it reusing it for its intended purpose, and Mr. E does too.
Make it pretty!
To replace a generic soap dish on the counter I like to bring in a lovely piece of vintage china. This dessert plate serves up French milled soaps in ethereal style!
Lastly, adding a lovely Limoge tray as a jewelry catch-all adds a final layer of sparkle and caché to the bath.
And here is a pretty quote I found on Pinterest from OnDecal for you…

I love this idea! My bathroom vanity is a mess of things tossed all about! Some organization ideas are always welcomed! Thanks for sharing and a very happy birthday to you as well.Shelbeewww.shelbeeontheedge.com
Good ideas, all. I like the mug for a catch all of combs and such. I do similar with my antique mug for toothbrushes!
Thank you, Barbara! I appreciate the well wishes!!
Thank you, Shelbee! This does help but there's still more clutter… ugh! Always!!Thanks again,Barb 🙂
I love mugs for catching soooo many different things! I keep one on the counter to hold our usually used silver spoons we use for coffee and tea and ice cream. Mugs are in my craft room, too. Will have to write a post on that… ;)Thank you, Jeanie!Barb 🙂
