My DIY Under Sink Storage Bathroom Tip with Premade Shelves

Today I am sharing my 15 minute DIY under sink storage bathroom tip with premade shelves from HomeGoods. A few weeks ago I decided to organize my bathroom cabinets. Under sink storage has always been my least favorite project to tackle but one of the things that always stresses me out. As you know, the sink pipes make it difficult to have any type of shelf or storage tower.

The amount of wasted height space under a sink is ridiculous and I am always amazed at how quickly the cabinet can become a disaster.

DIY Shelf Under Sink Installation Tips

First I removed all the items. I didn’t intend on lining the walls with drawer liner but I realized that the acrylic containers blended with the white bathroom cabinet walls so I decided to line the walls with the drawer liner.

Under sink storage tips that are pretty

Drawer liner can make under a sink so pretty! I simply cut the drawer liner and used clear Scotch tape to stick the paper to the wall. I tried to line up the green flowers as best as I could so the paper flowed nicely. You don’t need to be as detailed as I was but I think it looks more cohesive.

Once the wallpaper drawer liner was installed, I measured the distance between the hooks on the back of the premade shelves and installed two small screws into the bathroom cabinet to hold the shelf.

Adding Shelves Under a Bathroom Vanity

I am not sure if you remember but I recently added 2 small shelves in my son’s bedroom when I did his nature inspired bedroom makeover  and these two longer shelves were left over. I had originally planned on hanging all 4 of these premade shelves from HomeGoods in my son’s bedroom but there was not enough room so I had these shelves sitting in my basement. The goal was to create an organized bathroom cabinet as cheap as possible and when I can use something that is already in my house, that is a win!

The two premade shelves were two different sizes and when they both fit snug right up against each other and didn’t interfere with the sink plumbing pipe, I was shocked. It’s like they were made for under sink storage.

Under Bathroom Sink Organization Ideas

I found these cute acrylic storage containers at HomeGoods and they turned out perfect for my makeup, nail polish and toiletries.

The black wood premade shelves literally couldn’t have been any more perfectly sized for the bathroom cabinet. By adding the shelf, it allowed me to have additional storage and utilize some of the wasted height space in the cabinet.

The larger lower acrylic containers with pull handles work great for vitamins, Q-tips and bottles.

  1. I never thought about lining the walls under the sink! It actually looks very nice. That is amazing how the shelves fit just perfectly. I have plastic bins under the sink too, and it’s such a pain to work around the pipe. I have things stacked on top of each other in the bins, but it would be nice to have shelves.

    1. Hi Brenda! I agree the pipes take up too much room 🙂 Have a great week and thank you for stopping by!
