ART OF ORGANISING: BATHROOM STORAGE Bathroom organising can be the worst. If it isn’t the toothpaste residue putting you off- then it might be finding place for that backup toilet paper. But with a few tips it’s easy to get your bathroom organisation back on track. Around the sink is best for stuff you use all the time- from smaller high use items moving down to bigger stuff. Then use additional storage for other essentials and backup supplies. The “everyday” storage above the sink is a good place to start.
This is where you want to have smaller items that you use a couple of times a day. Using a container is an easy way- to save your shelves from the dreaded toothpaste dribble. Up top is a good place for medications. Or if you have curious kids try a locked cabinet. Moving below the sink is for those everyday items- that are a little bigger or need more organising space. Dividers are an easy way to group bathroom items- or to separate them from other family members. Make-up stores best with separate compartments- to keep each item easy to find. And using a basket for shavers and trimmers- means you won’t get those little flecks of hair everywhere. At the bottom is usually best for the biggest everyday items- again divided into groups so they’re easy to find.
The Art of Organising: Bathroom Storage
Baskets work wonders to keep cables untangled. Moving over, a side cabinet suits extra supplies- or essentials that are too bulky to fit in your sink cabinets. The key to keeping them organised is to have them in groups- “like with like” so they’re easy to find. Boxes make high-up items easier to organise and take down. And using open space or shelves- -for things you need to grab quicker, like hand towels- or items you want to show off to display your personality. Towels too, store best folded and stacked. And doors are a good idea for items that don’t like being moist. If you’re short on shelf space or you can’t drill in walls- a trolley can be a handy way to add storage space. And the bonus is that it can move to wherever you need it most. Finally, all bathrooms are a bit different- -but if you stick to keeping your bathroom items grouped together- -right by where you’re using them most, or out of the way, you’ll be all set.
