How would you describe your bathroom? If the words “cluttered” and “cramped” come to mind, it may be time to make some changes. Having a messy bathroom can wreak havoc on your daily routine, and that’s no way to live!
Toss unused products. It’s time to part ways with that almost-empty bottle of hair product. If you haven’t used something in over a year, toss it! Shuffle through your bathroom products (don’t forget to check in the shower!) and see if anything should be tossed. Safety check your medicine cabinet for expired medications and take a quick inventory of your make-up to see if anything is past its prime.
Wrangle loose bottles. Is your shower dominated by shampoo and soap bottles? Pick up a few shower caddies next time you’re at the store to organize the products. Not only will your shower feel cleaner, you’ll also be able to easily find what you need, which means quicker showers! Tip: If your kids’ shower is cluttered with bath toys, store them in a mesh bag and hang it to dry after bath time.
Maximize wall space. If cramped quarters are to blame for a messy space, don’t fret – a small bathroom can have big potential! Consider adding shelving or cabinets above the toilet or mounting a shelf above your doorframe for extra storage. Fill the shelves with extra soaps, cleaners and washcloths. (Maybe even a candle!)
Repurpose furniture. If you’re short on storage and need a place to hold items like toilet paper, grab a large vase or umbrella stand. Stack the item inside the vase or umbrella holder. This works really well, because you can simply set the vase or umbrella right by the toilet. If toilet paper storage isn’t the only problem, and you’re looking for more cabinet space, repurpose an unused nightstand by placing it next to your sink. Use it to store small toiletries or beauty products. Instant storage!
