Bedroom & Bathroom Top Products

Finding order in your personal spaces such as your bedroom or bathroom is essential for your comfort.

From the moment I started my business over 40 years ago, I was deluged with requests to organize closets. I wanted these closets to be beautifully organized and look fabulous. Besides shelving and rods and boxes galore for shoes, sweaters, and hats, I wanted the closets to have the right hangers that would hold the shape of clothing. Then, I found Henry Hanger. As a test, I purchased dozens of hangers for my home, and miraculously,  they’ve lasted over 30 years with only one breakage. I always thought I earned my money back for my purchase, over and over again, for the quality, style, and durability of the hangers. Truly, one of my top products!

Get your own closet in order and hang your clothes in style with these high-quality hangers. The wooden hangers have a solid construction that provides superior hold and support as well as a flat profile, which allows for organized storage in any closet. Although the iconic family-owned Henry Hanger closed in 2019, the brand has been revived by RMX-NY with the hope to continue the legacy.

They have a huge range of different styles for different purposes and clothing types, but these are the 3 styles I personally use now and recommend:

Decorative Storage Baskets

You can’t go wrong with using decorative storage baskets to get organized!

This is one of my top products for organizing my home and the concept works for just about any room in the house.

There are plenty of storage baskets available but make sure the ones you choose suits the décor and style of your home. These next three options are manufactured by Real Home Innovations but can be purchased at Walmart.

This set of small and medium baskets which come in black or white are my personal favorites. They are created with finely woven seagrass and twisted paper which is then completed with jute handles. These baskets can be used as beautiful statement pieces in any room of the house while also storing a myriad of items. Roll up your throws or blankets and place them in these baskets close to the couch or use them to store your kids’ stuffed toys in their playroom.

  1. These are all great organizing tools, Ronni. My absolute favorite is the make-up brush holder. I’ve never seen that before and will absolutely recommend it. Such a smart idea to keep the brushes upright and enclosed so they aren’t out in the open. Thank you very much for sharing these great options.

    1. Diane,

      I was inspired by the make up organizer because I have many fine brushes that I don’t want filled
      with dust or have the brush hairs bend out of shape. (That’s happened!) It’s narrow so it doesn’t take up a lot of room. I have it sitting right on my vanity.

        1. Andrea,

          What a lovely complement, thank you! I hope you have the best Valentine’s Day and spend it with those you love.

  2. Ronni- You’re such a great resource person! You always feature the coolest products. This is a great list. I especially love the basket sets. And those drawer organizers are an excellent value- a set of 16 for under $25. But perhaps my favorite is the collection of 1Thrive family command centers.

    The other thing you mentioned, which is so important, is how often we collect organizing products, but don’t use them effectively or at all. I think there is the promise that the product will solve all of our organizing challenges. And while that could happen, in truth, it is the before product purchase work that is more significant. If the editing of the “stuff” doesn’t happen first, along with evaluating your storage needs and space available, the organizing products might not work. So it’s worth working the organizing process in a sequence that will give you the optimal results.

    1. Linda,
      I really like how you said that. It’s so true. When I’m asked about tools or products to help get organized, I remark how the organization starts first in our minds. No tool is going to have that magical cure if we don’t create organized strategies. Decluttering is one of the most important and first steps.

    1. Lucy,

      I do love hangers that will hold the shape of our clothing and stand the test of time. They were one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. I never thought twice about it.
      I can safely say that none of my clothing has shoulders that are stretched out of shape!

    1. They are GREAT! As I told Sabrina, if you plan on purchasing any, use the code 20 on the post for a nice discount. It’s always good to save money.

  3. Great collection of products! I love the Coily Cables. I saw them at The Container Store near me and thought they were great. I can’t stand all the cable mess on my desk. May have to get a few more. =)

    1. Sabrina,
      Definitely, the Coily Cables are the biggest hit! Like you, I really can’t stand to see those messy wires popping out from behind desks or anywhere for that matter.
      If you decide to get more, use my code 20 on the post for a nice discount.

        1. Seana,
          I think the nicest feeling on Valentine’s Day is being remembered. It’s knowing that you’re loved and having others that you love too. It’s a celebration. It’s a milestone. It’s a Hallmark holiday. It’s the spirit behind all of that- that makes us feel warm all over and so happy to be loved.

  4. Great list of products. I use acrylic organizers for a variety of purposes and absolutely love them. The makeup brush holder you recommend looks pretty and functional. I also love the Coily Cable and the iThrive wall organizer.

    1. Sheri,

      I’ve used the acrylic organizers for jewelry, belts, make up, in the bathroom, in the kitchen, in a desk drawer. The uses are endless.
      The most important thing is to measure correctly and measure twice because there are so many options out there.

    1. Janet,

      I really love those baskets too. I’ve used them for myself and for clients. They’re flexible and roomy and come in several sizes. I’ve stored rolled up towels, extra blankets, and magazines. They are beautiful and useful.

  5. Those Coily Cables are really awesome. I can think of multiple people in my life who might like them. I’m thinking I’ll add those to my “gift ideas” list for upcoming special days:)

    1. Seana,

      The Coily Cables come in 2 sizes and in black and white. I have one in the car, my son and husband each took a cable and I am left with one more. I think they would make fantastic little gifts. And they are great space savers.

  6. You definitely have a great mix of classic tools (like the drawer dividers) and novel items! I’ve never seen the Coily Cables, but I love anything that uses magnets to keep things organized and tidy. And the Thrive 1 wall organizers are so cozy and inviting, a way to make a house into a family home.

    I always have to wonder about using acrylic display containers for make-up. It seems like powder would get into the crevices and that sponges would always be transferring foundation. I can see myself chasing those little pink pearls all over the floor when I clean it and invariably knock them to the floor. 😉

    1. Julie,

      I’ve used all of the products so they definitely have my stamp. One reason I like the acrylic is because it’s so easy to wipe clean. If there’s a spill or smattering of powder, you can remove that one section and you don’t have to remove the others.
      Those Coily Cables are the cutest ever. It’s a win-win for me because I don’t like so many loose cables and wires showing.
      Hmm-about the pink pearls, if you put them into a container before you clean the organizer, I’m pretty sure that will work.That’s a mini problem for a big return. The pearls are meant to hold the handles of the brushes in place and you can see them all at a glance.
