Tips for keeping a small bathroom organized
With the new year well on the way, now’s a great time to not only reflect on the last 12 months, but also prepare for the future. Many people take this time to set new year’s resolutions; coming up with goals that can inspire a brighter January and on can be an encouraging opportunity to start anew. For homeowners, this could mean revamping their current living space, or making moves to stay more organized.
Someone with a small bathroom, for example, may be interested in learning more about how to keep the space clean and organized — and ensure the area is well maintained into the next year. If this sounds like your current scenario and you need some guidance, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few of our tried and true tips for keeping a small bathroom organized.
Make use of your wall space
When you’re working with a small bathroom, you’ll find it difficult to create organizational methods from new standing systems because you’re already limited when it comes to floor space. Your walls, however, can make it easier to put your space together and keep it that way. Consider hanging the following accessories on your walls to make for better use of your vertical space:
- Mount a towel rack
- Hang small shelves for toiletries
- Use adhesive hooks to display beauty tools
- Place a wire shower organizer around the showerhead
- Invest in a multipurpose mirror with storage
This may not leave a lot of space for decor, but you can choose stylish storage options to make up for the lack of artwork and other pieces you would normally place on the walls.
Use storage containers in the cabinets
Your cabinetry is a useful space for storing items, but this area can also become a catastrophe quickly without a storage system in place. To prevent an avalanche of toiletries and other items you use regularly from falling into your lap every time you open the cabinets, create an organizational station with separators, drawers and small shelves. This is something a design consultant can help with — he or she can take specific measurements and ensure you have a precise storage system in your bathroom cabinetry.
Create a regular cleaning schedule
For some, getting organized isn’t necessarily the problem — it’s all about maintaining the cleanliness over time. That’s why so many people tend to make organization a top priority on their list of new year’s resolutions.
If you find yourself in this position, set a goal to clean and organize the bathroom on a regular cadence. Whether it’s every Saturday morning or a random afternoon during the week after work, making the time to straighten up every few days will ensure the space doesn’t become a cluttered mess. Set a phone reminder or mark it on your calendar to stay on top of this task.
There’s also an opportunity to create a small system under your sink specifically for cleaning supplies. If you need assistance finding a unique storage option with a precise fit in your small bathroom, this is something a personal decorator can assist with.
