Nobody likes a cluttered bathroom counter, but digging through cupboards isn't exactly pleasant either. Over at The Family Handyman, there's a useful a tutorial on building a swing-out shelf (and more) for easy access to all your toiletries.
The swing-out shelf is definitely our favourite of the bunch, and it's easy to build if you have a little experience with DIY. All you need is a few pieces of plywood and hardboard, some screws, and a piano hinge. Hit the link to check out the full instructions, as well as a few other ways to maximise (and simplify) your bathroom storage.
