Quick Tips For Organizing Your Bathroom

From helping you get ready for work in the morning to unwinding, bathrooms serve many purposes. Organizing your bathroom can help transform it from the place you take your morning shower to your personal beauty salon or barber shop. Here are a few tips to help you organize your bathroom for optimal space and performance:

Control Bathroom Clutter

Gels, sprays, hair curlers, brushes and hair dryers take up a lot of space in the bathroom. For quick organization, make or buy an drawer organizer and load it up with your supplies. As you place them in the containers, evaluate whether you use the items often. If not, donate it to a friend or to charity. When you grab an item, the whole organizer can be taken out and put away without creating a mess.

You can even line your bathroom drawers and cabinets with drawer liner or wrapping paper to keep it clean and neat. If make-up or gunk builds up under your sink or in your drawers, just rip out the liner and replace it – no scrubbing necessary.

Add Creative Towel Storage

No more fighting over whose is whose, plus your bathroom floor will remain dry, not damp. Mount your towel hooks on the back of your bathroom door to keep them out of site. Mounting them behind your bathroom door can also do the trick.

How To Organize Your Medicine Cabinet

The way to achieve a clean vanity top is to change the use of the medicine cabinet. They are better used for everyday grooming supplies rather than medicines.

Did you know? Steam and higher temperatures in the bathroom can ruin medication. Storing these items in a kitchen cabinet or closet with less moisture will help medications and prescriptions last longer.

.By creating “active” storage in your medicine cabinet you’ll minimize time spent in the bathroom, giving you more time to organize another space in the house.

Organize Under the Bathroom Sink

Keep like items in their own labeled storage bins underneath the sink or in the linen closet. When you need to use something, slide the whole container out for easy access. This helps keep everything in its place, and prevents bottles from knocking anything over, and helps contain spills.

Don’t forget to take this time to go through any almost-empty bottles and toss them. Hoarding products you may never use again just takes up space. Commit to finishing the product, or throw it out.

In-Shower Storage

There are lots of utilitarian shower caddies you can hang from your shower head and stow your shampoo bottles, soap, razors, and even loofahs. Setting bottles down in the corners of your shower not only creates the look of clutter, but it can trap water and create mold.

A shower caddy will keep your bath supplies in a collected location, and the good ones will allow proper draining so no mold is left behind.
