Your bathroom should be a calming retreat, but it’s also a space that can easily get overtaken by clutter. Give your bathroom a more streamlined look by getting things off of the vanity countertop and into designated spots. Here are some helpful organizing tips for homeowners to keep their bathroom vanity neat and tidy:
Get rid of unnecessary items. Chances are you have items in your bathroom that really have no business being there. Whether it’s old makeup and beauty products that you no longer use or are half empty, or just random things that have found their way in, and never made it back out, there are likely at least a handful of items that can be tossed out or stored in another room. Before you can start organizing, you need to clear out everything unnecessary.
Only leave out the essentials. There are a few essential items that need to be handy at all times in the bathroom. These include hand soap, a hand towel, and toothbrushes. Everything else can be given a proper place to be stored away until they need to be used, like toothpaste, makeup, grooming tools, cleaning supplies, and more.
Use drawer organizers. For vanities with drawers, simple organizers are the way to go. You can find them in a variety of sizes and styles, and they easily insert into the drawer. You can keep all of your cosmetics and beauty tools neatly stored away in designated spots. This also helps to keep the products in good shape, since they aren’t simply being tossed into a cosmetics bag or left lying on the counter. The items will be handy whenever you need them, and conveniently hidden from view.
Use baskets or bins. You can use baskets and bins to keep towels, toilet paper, and other supplies neatly stored. If your vanity has a cabinet, it’s the perfect place to keep extra toilet paper rolls. Use stylish baskets to store folded hand towels and wash clothes. You can place a basket with towels or supplies on top of the toilet tank for even more organized storage. Small bins are great for collecting things like hair ties, bobby pins, and barrettes and clips.
By following these bathroom tips, you’ll have a more organized space. Keep your bathroom clean and relaxing by clearing out clutter. Make the most of the space by organizing all of the necessary items in the vanity.
I absolutely agree with you that it is important to get rid of unnecessary items in your bathroom vanity. Just like you mentioned here, we all have things that we do not use and never will, so the best thing to do is get rid of them. My girlfriend has so much make-p that she never uses but insists on keeping. Thanks again!
