Queen of small space frustration, the medicine cabinet is the bathroom workhorse we love to hate. It’s an evil temptress, providing just enough storage to leave us begging for more. But fear not! There are hacks for taming the medicine cabinet and its many contents -- yes, even the electric toothbrush!
Start with a cabinet that works for you
Before you begin organizing, consider the cabinet itself. All medicine cabinets are not created equal. Even if you’re short on space, there are models available with way-useful features for making the most out of seriously limited real estate. This version is big on reflection, with an interior that features a full door mirror plus an adjustable magnifying mirror which (bonus!) reduces countertop clutter. If you're a renter, do NOT assume you're stuck with the cabinet your apartment came with. Swap out a tired model for one that accommodates your needs (and style) even better.
