Practical Tips In Removing Bathroom Clutter
Bathrooms are usually considered one of the smallest rooms in the house, and more often than not, it is also the messiest.
And though you’re not in the habit of hoarding things, the task of keeping this area neat and organized seems like a huge challenge.
So if you’re tired of dealing with sticky soap dishes, stray toothpaste caps, and an overall grungy and messy feeling in your bathroom, then don’t lose hope!
We are going to share some practical tips in removing bathroom clutter and conquer the "water closet" chaos once and for all.
Start Off By Removing All The Stuff From Your Bathroom Shelves
Go through your bathroom and remove all the stuff -- that way you can clean off all the cabinets (this is good because it's good to get in a deep clean once in a while!).
Then categorize all the different toiletries. I like to categorize in groups like "FACE" "TEETH" "HAIR", etc.
Make sure to be honest with yourself (gurl). It's important that you know what products you do and don't use. If you aren't using them, you can remember that the next time you're being enticed with the newest beauty product, to think twice before taking it to the register.
In short, keep what you need and toss out or give away things that you don’t really need.
It's also important for your skin and eye health to keep your makeup up-to-date (ladies!). Old mascara can cause an eye infection and old foundation can result in a breakout!
Once you’re done with the categorization process, place back all the toiletries back into the bathroom shelves. I like to use different baskets with labels to keep everything organized. It's much easier to put away!
If you're unsure about where to start or what supplies you may need, reach out!
Throwing away beauty products can be a lesson in what you really use. It's important to know so you don't overspend -- organizing really does save you money!
Clear The Meds
Most of us are in the habit of placing drugs and medicines in the bathroom, but they are not supposed to be there in the first place as the humidity of the room will compromise the quality of the medications.
So we recommend that you remove all the medicines out and place them in a childproof storage bin (or a separate medicine cabinet outside your toilet) near your first aid kit so you can easily locate the meds the moment you need them.
One good place is in the linen closet or in the laundry room.
Space is essential in small bathrooms. So as much as possible, don’t over decorate.
Just like in organizing, decorating with simplicity is key.
Instead, try to find balance between beauty and functionality by making use of decorative items that are both attractive and functional at the same time. In addition, roll towels and stack them nicely so you can display them nicely.
It would also be helpful to invest in fine-looking bathroom accessories like jars, lotion dispensers, and soap dispensers so you can place all your bathroom essentials in these containers and add to the aesthetic appeal.
Creative Storage Ideas
And finally, another clever way of removing bathroom clutter is by being creative with the way you store things in your bathroom.
If your bathroom doesn’t have a closet, a huge vanity area, or an étagère, then we suggest that you invest in wall-mounted cabinets to maximize floor space. Aside from that, you can also make use of bins or baskets for storing unsightly products. (Baskets are the answer to everything!)
