I am happy to have Sue Jason from http://my-bathrooms.co.uk/blog/ here today sharing a guest post on much-needed advice (at least much-needed at my house) on how to organize a bathroom. My bathroom is so small; getting better organized will help me utilize what space I have. I can't wait to incorporate these ideas!
How to Organize Your Bathroom Drawers
The bathroom is used several times a day by each member of the household and, as such, can become cluttered and severely disfunctional with little time, opportunity or space for aesthetic considerations. However, keeping the bathroom neat and tidy while still making allowances for attractive features and a definite décor theme is easily achievable by everyone.
First Things First!
Try to keep the shower area clear of bottles; only keep what you need for your wash, keeping spare products tucked neatly into a drawer. You do not want to stand on or trip over something and fall while groping for a towel when your eyes are full of soap. Apart from not being safe, too many products make the shower area look untidy and cluttered.
Space for Everyone
Give everyone in the family their own space, be it a basket or caddy, in which to store their personal toiletries. They must keep them tidy or risk you tidying it up for them! Once everyone is accustomed to cleaning and tidying their own small part of the bathroom, the whole space becomes much easier to clean and tidy, and the general effect is usually one of attractive practicality. You can also get a tall cabinet with several drawers and a mirror from My Bathrooms and place it in a corner of your bathroom for a beautiful more functional bathroom.
When in Doubt; Decant!
If you are a fan of bulk purchasing (and who isn’t, when the right opportunity comes along?) you may find that you have a lot of enormous containers that you simply have not enough space to accommodate. Why not decant them into much smaller containers, thereby ensuring that you have everything nicely to hand, and that, should anything be spilled or broken, not too much of the product is wasted?
