Besides the kitchen, the bathroom is probably one of the most important rooms in the house. It is also really easy for our bathrooms to become quickly run over by dirty clothes and self-care products. Our vanity counter becomes a catch-all and we can never seem to find a dry towel. Here are some tips to organize your bathroom and keep it that way!
Find the Necessities
The first step to organizing your bathroom is decluttering. Determine what are necessities and what items could find better homes somewhere else. Perhaps you could keep medicines and bandages in the kitchen since it is a more central and easily accessible room. Dispose of old and unwanted self-care products and expired beauty products. Keep your towels in a linen closet.
Use a Wall-Mounted Mailbox for Self-Care Product Storage
One quick way to organize your shampoos, face washes, conditioners, etc is to use a wall-mounted mailbox. This can be a great way to categorize items by person in your household as well. Thrift shops and home decor stores are great places to find inexpensive pieces that would be perfect for this purpose.
Use a Countertop Tray for Essentials
In an effort to keep your vanity countertop from looking like a war zone, use a countertop tray! Find a unique tray that fits your personality; in any shape or color. This is a great way to add style to your bathroom and keep the clutter down. Only keep what you need to quickly access on the tray, and if it doesn’t fit – find it a new home.
Use Baskets for Different Individuals
When there are multiple people in your home that all use and insist on their own items being in the bathroom, it can be hard to keep track of. Use baskets to give each person a defined amount of space and makes sure that their stuff is not disturbed. This is another space to add your own personality to your bathroom with endless bin styles to chose from.
Use a Ladder for Towel Storage
Adding a ladder to your bathroom can be a great way to revitalize your towel storage. Ladders can be a great minimalist decor piece as well as giving you a lot of room for multiple towels. It can also be used for towel designation so you don’t need to worry about someone else snagging your towel.
Use a Laundry Basket to Keep it Tidy
Using a second laundry basket in your bathroom may be the best thing you ever do. This is a great way to keep the floors of your bathrooms clean and free of used towels, washcloths, and dirty clothes. Then all you have to do is add a stop in the bathroom to your laundry day! Well worth the extra trip.
