Tips for Organizing Your Bathroom

Tips for Organizing Your Bathroom

Hello friends!

A new year is upon us...and with a new year comes new beginnings. Perhaps you are feeling in the mood for a change in your environment, or are preparing to get started on a New Year's resolution of organizing your interiors. I know the feeling! This time of year seems to spark inspiration.

2015 begins a small bathroom renovation that I am planning. This bathroom is the only one in a house of five people and has limited storage, which causes a lot of mess (and at times stress). My next few posts for Wicker Emporium will chronicle the changes that will be occurring in this bathroom and how I plan to organize the space to benefit those who live in the home. Today, I am going to list some ideas to help spark ideas on how I can possibly utilize this space, and how you may be able to utilize the space within your own home.

Wall shelves, hooks, and rings are all ideal ways to take advantage of vertical space. Think out of the box and look to the Internet for creative storage inspiration. You'll be surprised and amazed at people's innovation!

What do you actually use within the room? Sometimes, we tend to put things in a room because they are somehow associated with that room. But how often do you use these items? Cleaning products could go into a cleaning station within another area of the home, and beach towels could be stored with seasonal items. Some body and hair products we don't need to use too often so could be organized elsewhere.

colourful wall storage with hooksWhat do you need? Be realistic when sorting through clutter. Just because you may need something in the future, doesn't mean you will use it. A good rule of thumb when sorting through items is to ask yourself if you would buy it again. If the answer is no, it's time for the item to go. If you haven't used the item in over a year, chances are you won't plan to use it anytime soon. If it doesn't benefit you, move on.

When organizing think about where it is that you use these items. If you can store items nearby where they are used, it's going to create better ease and flow within a space - especially if more than one person at times uses this space at a time - which is the case with this bathroom that I am renovating. The more practical a space is, the better the energy will feeling the room and the more productive you will be. This will also entice you to put away your items when you are finished using them.
