Now that we’ve cleaned up the kitchen, let’s tackle the bathroom. The bathroom should be a place of escape; a cleansing, nourishing environment for you to release the day’s stressors. Let’s lay the footwork for that project!
Bathrooms come in all shapes, sizes, and styles and the ideas below can be modified for everyone’s taste.
Somehow, in my home wet towels end up on chairs, door handles, and of course, the floor. Let’s fix that.
I find that hanging towels on the traditional bar leaves half the towel damp and requires a perfect fold to look organized. Instead, I use hooks leaving my towels dry and always perfectly draped.
To store freshly cleaned towels use a vertical shelving technique that saves space and reminds you of all the clean comforts you’d find in a five star hotel.
This is easy storage for your extra bed linens: a great way to keep them matched is to fold and tuck the sheets into corresponding pillow cases.
When I think of bathroom cabinets, I think of sticky spills, expired make-up, and too many unused products. By keeping our products above ground we can’t neglect bathroom cleanings, using what we have, and getting rid of what we don’t need.
Put your cotton balls, bath salts, Q-tips, and loofas (extras for the forgetful overnight guest) in clear containers.
Make a specialized container by following the directions from this blog. Put flirty faux eyelashes in the design for your make-up container, plane tickets for your stolen hotel shampoos and soaps, or something that accents your bathroom decor like the coffee beans below.
Don’t forget to buy multi-use products; by storing items beneath the candles, you are able to store, showcase, and create a candle holder! I suggest putting your cotton balls or bath salts in this piece.
Some products require safe storage, far away from children’s reach and hidden from a guest’s view. Attaching a metal sticker to the inside of your cabinet, mirror, or on the back of a door, allows you to attach genius containers for all your clutter needs.
Add shelves to place your containers upon.
Last but not least, make use of what you’ve got! I use my bathtub for extra storage because I don’t use it often. By placing a wooden bench at the end of the bath, I have a new shelf for shampoos, conditioners, and make up.
I place my jewelry, make-up, and mirror on a gold tray I can bring downstairs, to the bedroom, or leave looking elegant in my master bath.
Another great idea is to make your own tray from an old picture frame.
One last idea to store and enhance the unused tub is creating a bench as shown on this blog.
