You may not have your ideal bathroom, but regardless of how small it is, you can always take steps to make it as clutter-free as possible. There are several benefits of an organised bathroom, which go far beyond aesthetic. When everything is stored correctly and neatly in the bathroom, it won't only make your bathroom more attractive, but it will also make it easier to use. When you need immediate items such as a plaster or cotton ball, you can find one quickly and easily. Having an organised bathroom also creates a more relaxing feel, making your bathroom experience a lot calmer. If you're looking for some tips on how to organise your bathroom, here is all you need to know.
Out with the old
Decluttering should always be the first step when it comes to organising your space. Simply clear out everything from your cupboards or drawers, and take a look at what you have. Then, declutter things like empty bottles, out of date products, and things that no one uses. Most bathrooms have more in them than what is needed, so try not to hoard unnecessary products. The aim here is to make your bathroom a place to feel good in, and a space that works for everyone. So only keep the things that you will use and will need.
Consider what to keep
When you're organising a space, we often forget what we actually need to begin with. Ask yourself, do these products need to sit in the bathroom all the time? For example, if you have a bigger family it may be worth having a small bag with their own toiletries in. This way, each bag can be carried in and out when using the bathroom. You may also wish to store excess products in a separate room until needed. If you are struggling for space in your house to store these additional products, why not invest in a secure storage unit?
If you really need to clear out some space, evaluate your cleaning products. Many of us keep bathroom cleaning products beneath the bathroom sink, but these can take up a lot of valuable space. To free up space under your bathroom sink for products and items you’ll actually use regularly, store your cleaning products in their own basket under the kitchen sink. This way you can bring them in each time you clean easily, but still have the added perk of extra storage space.
There are a number of clever storage solutions to make storing toiletries and bathroom products a lot easier. Once you've decided exactly what's going to stay in your bathroom, it's time to find a way to store the items that you wish to keep. Whether your bathroom is small or large, there are always storage solutions for you. Here are a few storage solutions for the bathroom that don't take up too much space:
Under Sink storage
When considering storage in your bathroom, it is important to make the most of the space you have. Make use of the height of the room by adding higher shelves, and making use of the sink by adding storage underneath, like containers or shelves. It is important to plan what you want to store before you go out and purchase your storage.
Reorganise your bathroom quarterly
Organisation functions best when it's in constant progress. Now that your bathroom is organised, it is important to keep up the tidiness. It is important to have a quarterly bathroom organisation session, to make sure that you aren't slowly bringing more products and unnecessary items into your room. A good idea is to mark your calendars, or simply aim for a clean out at the beginning of each season.
