How to Organize a Kids Bathroom
I am stuck in this kind of amazing “organize all the things phase” that hasn’t let up since nesting last winter when I had our baby girl. Every nook and cranny of my house is slowly getting a quick refresh and I’ve been saying goodbye to messy spaces by getting some organizing in my life! I found this Calleo rail at Target and love that I can move the collection around to suit my needs. I can swap a basket for a peg hook or larger basket or regular hook. It solves a lot of problems, long term, since I can move it around. I also love that the finish matches my silver bathroom hardware perfectly. You can see in the “before” shot that the towel rod and cabinet didn’t match and there was no personality to my poor walls!
Use the Walls to Clear Up Vanity Space
My favorite feature of the system is that after I mounted the rail to the wall, I was able to slide the hooks and/or baskets on and re-position them until I liked what went where. These baskets are great for storing items like wallets, sunglasses, keys, small bottles or jars, spices and more (their use is seriously endless!) but I organized mine with mason jars filled with bathroom-y things like Q-Tips, cotton balls, baby shampoo, and floss sticks. The hooks are perfect for coats, bath robes, leashes, purses, bags and towels.

How to Decorate A Kids Bathroom
Function is important but I love cozying up every space so I stopped by the craft section and grabbed little monograms to hang over the rail.
I also picked up some paint to personalize it a bit to create easy towel organization.
I am nerdy excited that my kids can even stay a bit more organized because they now know which hook their towel goes on to avoid the little fights at bath time. When guests come, I can easily add another decorative hook for them by just sliding it on the rail or I can mount it to the wall or back of my door. I love that I’m not married to the current configuration and can customize it based on my kids’ current needs.
Right now I have my daughter’s baby shampoo, lotion and infant wash cloths in one basket but she will soon outgrow it and I can replace it with a tissue box + a larger bottle of lotion for all of my kids to easily grab.
It is nice to have the “ear cleaners” as my 4-year old calls them easily accessible and the faux succulent gives the bathroom a more homey vibe without pricking little hands. 😉
Free Printable Bathroom Art
Our mom had this quote “If you sprinkle when you tinkle, be a sweetie and wipe the seatie” displayed on the wall of our childhood home for years so I whipped up a printable to display for my kids to read each time they use the restroom because heaven knows with 2 little boys there are lots of little sprinkles. Haha. And the phrase “Wash Brush Floss and Flush” is good bathroom etiquette for them to memorize and apply each day!

On my way out of the craft section I spied this cute dinosaur that makes the space more playful for my kiddos after I quickly drilled a few holes for their toothbrushes to rest in between uses. That and the mounted shark head had them excited for the little reveal I surprised them with over the weekend. The loved it.
I hope you enjoyed this quick bathroom refresh. Please pin so your friends can organize and decorate their little space, too!
So so adorable! This is my inspiration! Where are the whales from? Are they wooden?

I love this and the whole idea of storing things where they’re easily accessible. I’d eventually like to take down the existing double cabinet over the toilet in my very small master bath and go with open shelving. And paint the commercial grade brown vanity cabinets to lighten it up and help it look bigger. Your kids bathroom is adorable and perfect for little ones!
