1. Under The Sink Storage Idea

We all have that place in the bathroom we neglect and let clutter pile up but it's not because we want to, but rather we have no idea how to organize.

And that area is probably the under sink area where it's difficult to organize because it's dark, no shelving and pipes are all over the place.

The solution is to use shelf risers to utilize vertical space along with clear storage bins that are well labelled.
