Keep Your Bathroom Uncluttered

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Care and Maintenance, Kitchen and Bath

Have you ever walked into your bathroom and wanted to scream? Are there cosmetics, toothpaste and dirty towels everywhere? You are not alone. Here are a few tips to help “declutter” the most private room in your home.

Most bathrooms don’t have enough towel racks. Stacking towel racks on the back of your bathroom door is one way to solve this problem. Or color code your towels and hang them neatly on pegs.

Use cubbyhole shelves for larger items and surgical jars for smaller items. This will help keep your counter tops uncluttered.

Use uniform bottles for all your shampoo and conditioners. Uniform bottles look better and fit nicely in storage devices.

Add a sheet of galvanized metal to the back of your medicine cabinet. Now you can add magnetic hooks to hang your scissors, mirrors etc…

Use drawer dividers. You don’t want a junk drawer in your bathroom; you already have one of those in your kitchen. Wooden trays and dividers are available to help make your bathroom drawers neat.

On this note, take another clue from your kitchen and use roll out metal trays to store your trashcans in your lower bathroom cabinets.

Store toilet paper in a clear glass vase or an umbrella stand. This looks really modern and cool.

Keep all your cleaning supplies for the bathroom in a caddy since bathrooms require frequent cleaning. Now it’s simple and easy to keep the bathroom spotless, right?

We’re anxious to hear about your ideas for keeping your bathroom decluttered. Please send them to us and we’ll post them on the blog.
