Dear Marc:
I’m at a loss as to what I need to do with my bathroom to make it look beautiful. My main concern is the lack of storage. Everything is out in the open—my mouthwash, toothbrush, cotton balls, and Q-tips. What should I do with these items when I don’t have a cabinet to put them in?

Dear Christine:
There are many chic ways to conquer clutter and chaos in low-storage bathrooms. It can be as easy as adding a few decorative glass containers and omitting those unsightly plastic packages that products come in. I’ve compiled a couple of my favourite ways to showcase bathroom products in plain sight.

-- Small decanter
-- Shot glass
-- Mouthwash
-- Small glass vessel
-- Cotton balls

Step 1: Place things like cotton balls and other hygiene-related items in stylish glass vessels to create a sophisticated look.

Step 2: Pour mouthwash out of its plastic container and into a glass decanter.

Step 3: Place the decanter on your bathroom vanity. Set a plain shot glass beside the vessel to use as a mouthwash cup. Set the glass vessel with cotton balls beside the mouthwash decanter.
