Sometimes it is too difficult to keep organized this small space called the bathroom. Do you agree with this statement?
If you do, then you will consider changing your opinion after you read this article.
Taking my opinion I somewhat don’t agree with that statement. Okay, sometimes it can be too overwhelming to keep your bathroom organized. But that generally happens when you are confused or you don’t know the proper steps or I can say ‘hacks’ to maintain order in that space.
When you see that toothpaste lying in some corner, soaps forgetting where they belong to, your scattered makeup and shower kit on the countertop, you get blank and you don’t know what to do. But I know what you should do.
Use these 11 bathroom hacks to keep your bathroom very much organized. These hacks and ideas will never let you face the problem of an unorganized bathroom.
1. Bathroom Vanity
A bathroom vanity is a good organizing option. If you already have this installed, skip this. If you haven’t, then this is an amazing organizing piece that can accommodate many of your daily use things.
Keep your hair, makeup, skin products, and other tools organized in it.
2. Pocketed Shower Curtain
Shower curtains with pockets! You can use these shower curtains to keep your small-small things such as kids’ toys, combs, and… many other things. I can’t remember any. I leave it up to you.
So how much storage space you have been losing and continue to lose in the future if you don’t use this idea? Just think.
You can attach the pockets to your liner yourself or just buy a pocket shower curtain here.
3. Utilize the Space over the Toilet
The space above the toilet usually gets wasted, which otherwise when supplied with a proper storage system can be used for keeping a good amount of stuff.
Nowadays you have got these modern over the toilet shelves which not only look amazing but are also very organizing friendly. You can keep extra toilet papers, bathroom cleaning kit, and other items that are not used daily on it.
4. Shower Dispenser
One push, get your shower requirements such as shampoo, body wash, face wash directly on your palm. No need to go through the process of taking the bottle, and squeezing it to get the shampoo.
Fewer bottles make the bathroom look less cluttered, and you are not required to remember every time to keep the bottle back in place after using it. So a shower dispenser is worth trying. All you have to do is attach it to the wall after filling it up.
5. For the Loose Bathroom Essentials
Keep your loose bathroom essentials in apothecary jars. These jars are a great place for keeping cotton swabs, band-aids, bath salts, etc so that you don’t need to look after them every other day to make sure they are not spread around making the space untidy.
This is a very important step towards an organized bathroom. Even after reading tons of hacks on organizing the bathroom and applying those hacks, you won’t get an organized bathroom if you refrain from throwing away the unnecessary stuff. You are required to declutter your bathroom regularly in order to maintain an organized one.
Those things which should actually be thrown away are just using up space, which reduces the space available for your useful items. So all you will get is a bathroom just filled up with things everywhere. And in this case, even if it is organized it won’t look any good. A simple bathroom with minimum things will look much better.
7. Magazine Rack for Hair Appliances
A magazine rack is generally used for keeping your magazines in order. Now what I think is if they can be used for keeping magazines organized, then they can be used to keep other stuff organized as well. Now, the other stuff here resembles hair appliances such as hairdryers and straighteners. I just have some knowledge about these two appliances. Apologies.
If there are any other you can keep them as well. Or you can keep your hairbrushes if they fit in. So you can find all your hair related appliances in one place, organized!
8. Bathroom Shelves
If you have already installed them, well and good. If you haven’t then think of a good reason for not doing so.
Shelves give you tremendous space to keep things. You can keep your shampoo bottles, soaps, towels, beauty products, bobby pins, a lot of other stuff as you like.
To be more organized you can categorize things and keep them in baskets or bins and then keep those baskets on the shelf. This will even keep your shelf organized because I assume that after using anything, you will keep it in the basket dedicated to it. Otherwise, we keep it anywhere on the shelf and then search for it, disturbing all other things in the process.
You can also install floating shelves. You can find these floating shelves on Amazon. Floating shelves become one with the wall as if floating, that’s why called so.
9. Bin Organization Under the Sink
If you have used plastic bins or storage boxes on the shelves for keeping things organized, then why can’t you use them under the sink as well? When you have space under the sink, then don’t let it go waste. Keep your stuff in such plastic storage boxes and store them under the sink.
You can even make shelves and then keep things on them. Actually, you need to make a shelf if you don’t have any furniture or space under the sink on which you will keep the bins.
10. Wall Mount the Baskets
Or you can is directly wall mounting the baskets for keeping things. This will look good as well. You need to use wooden or some rich looking baskets for wall mounting. Hanging wire baskets won’t be a bad option either. Plastic ones won’t look good in my opinion. They look better on the shelves.
11. Keep the Countertops Empty
If you are organizing your stuff under the sink, above the toilet, in the wall-mounted bins, shelves, then you can probably keep the countertops such as those of sinks and bathtubs empty.
Empty countertops look neat and tidy, and this will happen only if you manage to keep your stuff at the other places, using the above hacks in which decluttering is an important one!
Use these hacks according to your needs for an organized bathroom; you can even modify them so that they fit in as the best for your bathroom.
