Tips to Make Your Bathroom Look More Organized

Your bathroom is supposed to be a place to relax and unwind away from the rest of the world. It’s hard to do that, though, if your bathroom is a cluttered mess. If you’re finding yourself in this situation, don’t fear! Read on to learn some tips that will help you turn your bathroom into a decluttered sanctuary.

Declutter before organizing

Before you run to buy more storage space, take a look at all of your bathroom items, and decide if they are all needed. Look through all toiletries and check their expiration dates, throw out what’s gone bad or you don’t use anymore. Here are some everyday items you probably have in your bathroom right now that might need decluttering:

  • Old frayed and ripped towel

  • Expired cosmetics

  • Unneeded or expired hair products

  • Old shower curtains

  • Travel size bottles

  • Unnecessary decor

Drawer dividers

One of the messiest parts of a bathroom can be cabinet drawers. It’s always so tempting to throw your little odd and miscellaneous items aside in these drawers. An excellent way to keep everything inside organized and save space is with a divider. It will also help you keep track of your item and always put them back in the right place.

Add labels

Labels are also another handy trick to help make sure things are easily accessible and always in the right place. If multiple family members share bathroom space, consider labeling separate baskets and cabinets with each family member’s name for them to keep their items in. If you live alone, you can still use labels to keep track of different bathroom items such as towels, hair products, medicine, etc. 

Adding shower dispenser or shower caddy

Do you have multiple bottles littered along the sides of your shower? Try getting a shower dispenser or caddy to lessen the mess. Shower dispensers conveniently store your liquid body wash, shampoo in conditioner all in one place, and over-the-shower caddies can hold multiple items while hanging directly onto your showerhead. Say bye-bye to messy bottles and hello to a clean shower.

Hair tool organizer

Hairstyling tools like hairdryers, flat irons, brushes, and combs can make up for a lot of clutter in your bathroom. A great tip to reduce the mess is to get a hair tool organizer. They come in all sorts of materials and colors and have convenient slots and cubbies for storing all of your hair styling products.
