When it comes to organization in the bathroom, there’s no getting around the fact that this is one of the most important rooms in the home. After all, who wants to be in a cramped, dirty bathroom when you’ve come prepared to enjoy a hot shower? Not many people, that’s for sure! The bathroom needs to be clean, organized, easy to get to, and free of clutter of any kind.
Fortunately, bathroom organization isn’t as difficult or expensive as it may sound. In fact, most of the components required for a decent bathroom organization scheme are widely available and very inexpensive. In addition, most of these items can also be found in your local dollar store. Seriously, I’ve been shopping around for bathroom storage products for years and I haven’t found a single thing that wasn’t available in a store near me. Let’s face it; the bathroom is probably among the busiest rooms in the home. Due to that, keeping your bathroom organized and clean can be a challenge!
So let’s get started on your bathroom organization. To begin with, you need to get organized by room. Then determine what items you wish to have access to while you are in each specific room, and where those items should be stored. Finally, locate any nearby cabinets or other storage solutions that might be able to help you store and organize those items properly.
Bathroom storage systems come in a variety of types, styles, and uses, including: mirrors, cabinets/vanities, under the sink storage, hangers/baskets, shelves/ceiling units, drawers, and more! Depending on how you plan to use your new bathroom organization system, it’s time to decide what materials to purchase. For example, if you’re looking to store and organize small items such as toothpaste and the like, then you’ll probably want to go with plastic containers and baskets or some type of hanger/basket arrangement. On the other hand, if you’re looking for an easy way to organize large items such as hair dryers, medicine, etc., then you’ll likely want to go with metal and wood cabinet/vanity drawers and bins.
Bathroom cabinet organizers are a great addition to a bathroom organization system because they simplify storage, while at the same time providing a beautiful and functional place to store everything. One type of cabinet organizer that really does a great job is the double hung bathroom cabinet. Double-hung cabinets, as their name implies, are hung from two hangers, rather than one. This ensures that you will always have hanging space for items such as towels, face cloths, washcloths, etc. A double hung bathroom organizer also prevents the appearance of clutter all over the floor.
Another great bathroom organizing idea to keep in mind is using towels for dispensing. Some people even hang toothbrush holders from towels, although this can get kind of messy. Regardless, of how you choose to dispense your towels, though, it’s important that you know where to find them, particularly if your bathroom organization system requires you to stack towels on top of each other. If you don’t have any decorative or coordinating place to store your towels, for instance, you’ll probably end up stacking them haphazardly across the room.
The final bathroom organizing idea to consider is the use of a caddy. A caddy can be a very effective bathroom organization tool if you use it in the right way. A caddy is simply a large plastic box that contains a variety of different accessories and containers. Some examples of useful accessories that you can place in your caddy include bottle cleaning kits, measuring cups and spoons, tissue boxes, deodorant packets and the like.
Having everything organized will allow you to get through the day with more ease and without being stressed out. It can also help reduce clutter in your bathroom, which helps make the space feel more comfortable and relaxing. Finally, bathroom organization can improve your health by keeping you drier and more able to concentrate. You can wash your hands every few hours instead of once or twice, for instance, since you won’t have to reach all the way over to the bathroom to pull out the last bit of toilet paper.
