Having An Organized Bathroom
When it comes to organizing your house, often one of the smallest rooms can also be one of the most problematic. A disorganized bathroom can also severely impact your morning routine. It's a time of day when we’re usually rushing – to get ready for work, to get our kids off to school – and so it can really be a crunch point where it doesn’t take much to get off track. Our bathrooms also tend to be one of the spaces where we start and end our days – and how much nicer is it to have a space that is organized, calm and welcoming? So if you’re in need of a bathroom clear out and some better storage solutions, where do you begin?
Start By Clearing Out
The first step is to have a big clear out – you’d be surprised how many things we end up hoarding. From getting rid of expired medication to thinning out the multiple half-used bottles of shower gel and shampoo, aim for a clean slate. Anything that you haven’t reached for in the past six weeks should be disposed of or recycled. Use it as an opportunity to clear the decks and start afresh.
Sort Out Your Storage
Everything should have its place in an organised home, so start by purchasing some baskets or clear storage bins to sit inside your cabinets and keep everything organised. Sort items by type – for example, you might have one container for cleaning products, one for haircare, another for medicines and so on. Look into adding more storage if needed. Bathroom storage units are usually a pretty good price and treated to withstand the wetter atmosphere, while things like a bathroom toy net can be really useful if you have small children. And if wires going everywhere drive you crazy, look for some Cord Organization Tips. You can also purchase racks which sit over the door of your vanity unit and can hold hot hair tools.
Clear The Counters
Keep as many items off the counters that you can. If you do have to have some, try using a tray to keep any smaller items together and organised. This is a good idea both to create a tidier appearance, but also to make it easier to keep surfaces clean and hygienic. You could try getting a nice matching soap dispenser and toothbrush holder and moving anything else into the cupboard space.
Assign Everyone A Caddy
This is a trick that works extremely well for busy family bathrooms – start by allocating each person a sectioned caddy that can hold their personal toiletry items. Then they can literally grab and go in the mornings, and replace everything afterwards without having to search through lots of drawers and cupboards. Plus, everything is a lot easier to clean up. You can even label the caddies with a labelmaker to make it easier for kids to follow.
