It happens to the best of us: over time, your bathroom gets overrun with half used products, overstuffed drawers and miscellaneous hair ties. Luckily, there’s no reason to wait for spring-cleaning as an excuse to tackle the organization of one of your most used rooms. Instead, we’re advocating for a fall refresh — and we have six tips to help you achieve your most de-cluttered and organized bathroom.
Toss or Donate
If you have a collection of hotel shampoos, sample products or even full-sized lotions you never intend to use, it’s time to say goodbye. Get rid of the opened and half-used bottles and gather up the rest to donate to a local women’s shelter. Not ready to part with them just yet? Fill a basket and put them under the sink in your guest bathroom as spares.
Make Everyday Items Accessible
If you know you’ll take your hair dryer out every single day, find a place where it is easily accessed and easily restored. The same goes for other everyday items. By prioritizing these frequently used items, you can create a better flow to your storage system.
Embrace Cabinet Storage
And speaking of easy storage, over the door cabinet storage hangers are perfect for holding hair styling tools, especially in bathrooms that are tight on space.
Use baskets, drawer organizers or small tubs to collect like items together and avoid the dreaded catchall drawer. This way, you’ll never have to hunt for a Band-Aid again — you’ll know exactly where to find them in your first aid basket.
Now that you have everything nicely categorized, go the extra mile and print some cute labels on sticker paper. Not only is this a unique way to show off your style, you’ll also never forget which bin holds which items.
Keep Countertops Clear
Nothing will make your bathroom feel more cluttered and less organized than a counter full of products and unnecessary items. Instead, keep it simple: just soap, maybe a toothbrush and toothpaste holder and one of two decorative touches, like a plant or a candle.
With these tips, you can easily maintain the clean, organized bathroom you’ve always wanted. Looking for a little extra style to your newly de-cluttered space? Add a frame to your mirror.
