The start of a new year always makes me feel like deep cleaning and reorganizing. I’m always so optimistic that this will be the year that I manage to find the right systems of organization for our home. One of my major goals for 2017 is to get control over the clutter. One area that has been driving me crazy lately is our bathroom organization… or lack thereof.
We have plenty of storage in our master bathroom. What we need is for each item to have a home. Maybe then the drawers won’t end up looking like the lost & found bin at school, which we all know is pretty scary! I’ve been scouring Pinterest for inspiration and seeing those beautiful pictures is so motivating. I’m trying to keep this project low-budget so I’ve been searching for organization methods using items that I already have on hand. Here are some ideas to help get the bathroom chaos in order.
Segmenting the drawers with dividers or containers will help keep items tidier. Depending on the number of drawers you have, each drawer can house a specific category of item, such as makeup or hair care products. If you have fewer drawers, you can still divide them into sections with specific items staying together in separate spaces. The dollar store is a great source for cheap containers. Just spray paint them if they don’t have the colors you need!
make the most of the space under the sink
The space under the sink is usually a good size, but awkward to utilize because of plumbing. I love the metal shelving that Amy from Living Locurto used under her sink. If you’re looking for something that doesn’t require installation, stackable containers will make good use of the space while accommodating the pipes.
Use the cabinet door
Bathroom organization has a lot to do with using your space effectively. When you’re trying to make the most of the space under the sink, don’t forget about the cabinet doors. There are plenty of temporary and permanent options for adding extra storage to the door. Simple adhesive hooks would be a great way to hang curling irons or hairdryers.
Jars and Baskets
Using glass jars and baskets is a great way to organize your bathroom because there are so many options. It also makes visible storage more attractive. Taking items out of their original packaging when storing in clear glass jars turns your storage into a part of your decor. That toilet paper looks so much nicer in the basket than it would if it was just sitting on the shelf. You almost don’t notice that it’s there!
Not only does labeling keep items in their proper place, but it can also make your storage prettier! I love these labels from The Creativity Exchange. You can edit and print them for free 🙂 This is another great example of using decorative jars and containers to make your storage part of your bathroom decor.
There are so many ways to make bathroom organization work for your home. By tailoring the options to your specific needs, you’ll help ensure that you’ll actually use the systems in place. I hope you enjoyed all this fun inspiration!
