Consider the space: after all, this is where you brush your teeth, wash your face, put on makeup and prepare yourself for the day ahead. If it’s cluttered with all the trappings of getting ready in the morning, chances are you’re not getting the most out of this room. So take a minute to really consider all the ways you use the room and how you can make improvements. Stumped for solutions? We’ve got plenty of bathroom sink ideas to make your space both appealing and useful.

Tie it all together: investing in coordinating countertop accessories and organizational tools will help to reduce visual chaos and give the space a sense of unity. Pottery Barn’s bathroom accessories includes toothbrush holders, soap dispensers, all-purpose canisters, trays and boxes that you can use to get organized. The trick is to think about the overall look you want to achieve using a combination of new and existing items. Consider the color and pattern (if any) of your shower curtain and the style and color of your towels. Then select stylish accessories that complement the other items in the room to tie it all together.

Do it all: does is your bathroom sink a staging area for you before you go to work in the morning or go out in the evening? Consider adding a decorative jewelry box to keep it all organized and in one place. You could also use a mirrored vanity tray with a small box on it to hold all your treasures. These jewelry storage and organization items add just a touch of sparkle and glamour to your bathroom sink.

Low on counter space? Prefer to leave your surfaces as clutter-free as possible? A stylish mirror or mirrored medicine cabinet can store all your belongings and make this part of the bathroom look more formal. If you’ve got bare wall to work with, opting for an ornately-framed or shaped mirror can make your bathroom feel bigger and brighter.

Wall shelves offer another way to increase storage space in your bathroom. Wall shelves are a great choice for displaying delicate treasures like vintage perfume bottles or a small vase that might not be great for every day use. Displaying them on a shelf makes sure they’re safely out-of-the-way but still at eye-level so you’ll have plenty of occasions to admire them.

Look down: don’t forget the floor around your bathroom sink. This area is also deserving of some attention. Pick out a nice cushy bath mat to coordinate with the space. If your bathroom is mostly decorated in neutral tones, this may be the perfect place for a pop of color. Though you might not spend a whole lot of time looking at the floor, a comfortable, beautiful rug can help tie the bathroom together and allow you to feel more comfortable while standing at the sink.
