Bathrooms tend to be one of the most chaotic areas of the home. Bath time, morning routines, and a houseful of people all create the perfect storm to destroy an organized bathroom. It seems no matter how hard we try, it gets messy again. Thankfully, using these tips for organizing your bathroom will make finding items and quickly returning them to their designated place a bit easier.
Clean It Out
Before a bathroom can get organized, the clutter needs to be removed. Start by emptying everything out—drawers on the vanity, linen closets, and countertops. After it is all emptied out, give the bathroom a thorough deep cleaning for a clean canvas to work with.
Add Some Shelving
This may not be necessary if you already have a great built-in closet in your bathroom. But if you don’t, then use wall space however you can. Shelves, even the tiniest ones, are helpful for storing small bathroom items. One or two near the sink are handy for quickly grabbing the cotton swabs or baby lotion.
Boxes, Baskets, and Dividers
When every item has a designated place, it’s easier to get it back where it belongs. Using containers to organize similar bathroom items makes getting ready and cleaning up much easier.
Dividers and inserts of all sizes in the drawers help keep bobby pins separate from hair bands and extra toothbrushes separate from the toothpaste.
Stackable baskets with dividers are very helpful to keep things organized if you don’t have selves underneath the sink and provide more storage for bathroom supplies, such as lotions and other toiletries.
Do It Your Way
We tend to create traditions as a society, even in the way we organize a bathroom. Get creative and see what you can do to make your bathroom work better for you and your family.
If you are tired of running downstairs to grab extra toilet paper, maybe a basket of it right next to the toilet would be more helpful.
The same idea works for bath towels. Keep them rolled up and in a container near the tub if it helps make the day run smoother and keeps the bathroom tidier.
These tips for organizing your bathroom are just ideas to get you started. Clean it out, clean it up, add containers and shelves wherever you can, and get organized.
