Tips for bathroom storage and organization
Though it's an essential part of the household, a bathroom should also be a place of relaxation and calmness. If your bathroom is cluttered, chances are relaxation isn't going to happen. Get rid of the stress and mess and get ready to relax with these easy bathroom storage ideas. Getting organized will allow more time for bubble baths and less time trying to find that bottle of bubbles.
Bathroom storage starts with your vanity. Start by going through and throwing out everything you don't use – that will give you a clean space to work with. Smaller storage options, like boxes or baskets, can help sort each family member's items, to avoid confusion.
If you buy in bulk, keep a basket or a section of the vanity (like a drawer) for extra toothpaste, shampoo or anything else your family goes through quickly. This will eliminate wasteful habits such as using a new bottle before the old one is finished.
If you don't have a vanity, try investing in bathroom storage cabinets or bathroom storage units. These can be purchased separately, and come in different designs and sizes. A medicine cabinet with a mirrored door can make all the difference when it comes to sorting out toiletries and medicine bottles for easy access and use.
Bathroom Storage Accessories and Shelving
A small bathroom can be a bane of organization – there's simply not enough space or storage built into the original fixtures. You can solve this problem by investing in some shelving and fashionable bathroom accessories.
Bathroom storage furniture doesn't have to look industrial. There are many stylish options available to decorate your bathroom and provide functionality. Bathroom storage shelves can take the form of a shower caddy or toilet organizer. The trick with bathroom storage is to think vertical – an organizer above a toilet can hold towels, toiletries, cleaning supplies and more, without taking up room in a vanity or in cabinets around the bathroom. Hate the cluttered look in your tub? Shower caddies hold all your shower items in one place.
Towel Racks and Linen Storage
If you live in a smaller space, you might not have the luxury of a linen closet. Even if you do, towel racks can make your space a lot easier to navigate and stop the tangled mess of towels and sheets that might comprise your current linen storage.
There are many options for towel racks and closet organizers, whether you want an intricate storage system or just a few racks to make sure your towels stay dry and off the floor. Heated towel bars can make those chilly morning showers a little more bearable when you know you're getting out to a nice warm towel! Closet organizers will sort your towels from your sheets, and your sheets from your winter clothes.
