Cut The Bathroom Clutter With These Easy Organizing Tips

A well-organized bathroom is key to smoother mornings and relaxing evenings. Utilizing clever storage solutions allows you to add functionality and space to your powder room. Read on to find out how to bring order to your shelves, vanity drawers, countertop and under-sink area.

Keeping an orderly bathroom is much easier when you’ve designated storage locations for your bath and beauty products. Floating or open shelves add a modern touch over traditional cabinetry. Everyday toiletries could be stored on them — including lotions, toothbrushes, shaving creams and towels. Over-the-toilet and corner shelves also make great use of empty wall space. However, if you choose to store items above the commode, it’s best to get in the habit of keeping the toilet cover closed. This prevents toiletries from falling inside and minimizes contamination. Avoid storing medications on open shelving.

A vanity drawer could quickly turn into a bottomless pit of junk without a bit of organization. Consider dividing the space using office supply containers, bowls, silverware holders or small baskets. This lets you keep items such as hair styling products, deodorant and grooming accessories organized and contained. Drawer dividers may also help simplify your morning makeup search. You won’t have to dig for your favorite eyeshadow or mascara when all of the products are in one place.

Are toiletries cluttering your countertop? Corral them with a shallow, decorative tray. This keeps necessities such as skin care products, contact cases, perfumes and colognes, and jewelry in sight yet neatly contained. Avoid storing large items such as hair styling tools and bath linens on trays. Elegant glass canisters let you display cotton balls, cotton swabs and bath salts in a beautiful way. Glass jars are easily accessible, which makes them handy when guests use your bathroom. If you’re looking for a more stylish solution, get creative and hang a row of mason jars on a piece of wood to enhance your decor. They double as small storage containers for cotton swabs and makeup or toothbrushes.

The under-sink area is the ideal spot for products that aren’t used often. It’s best to keep the first-aid kit, plunger and cleaning supplies tucked behind cabinet doors. Gather cleaners and tools in a small caddy or two-tiered organizer that doubles on storage to maximize space. You may also want to keep a cumbersome waste basket out of sight by attaching it to the cabinet door underneath the vanity.

Whether your bathroom is big or small, these savvy storage ideas could help you add space and stay organized. Start your search in the bathroom before moving onto a bathroom vanity outlet. You’ll learn what works best for you and your bathroom clutter. For more ways on how to designate storage locations for items, see the accompanying resource.
