Bathrooms can get messy in a hurry. There are toothbrushes to put away, towels to fold, soap to store, and about a dozen other toiletries that all need to find a home in a single room that isn't exactly known for its abundance of shelf and closet space. Fortunately, there are plenty of products on the market designed to keep your bathroom clutter at bay without taking up all of your space. Below, you’ll find a few of our favorites, many of which clock in at under $50 with hundreds (if not thousands) of five-star reviews.

Its sturdy stainless-steel construction, which the manufacturer describes as rust-proof and scratch-resistant, also comes complete with four hanging hooks for towels, loofahs, and razors. Meanwhile, its slotted design allows water to drain easily, preventing bacteria from building up.

And the top level is perfect for displaying your favorite skincare products.
