At the end of the day, a well-organized bathroom is a happy bathroom. Seriously - how inconvenient does it make your day when you're going through a poorly kept bathroom vanity and can't find your disposable razors, toothpaste or other necessities needed to start the day fresh and well-maintained? Not only that, but numerous bathroom decor experts have pointed out that organization goes a long way toward making bathrooms look presentable and enhances the amount of space users have to work with when setting up decorations.
Several experts have cooked up lists of ideas for keeping bathrooms well-arranged, and we've plundered the best advice for your benefit here.
Throw out empties
It's hard to say exactly why this is - but some people tend to leave empty bottles of shampoo and other cleaning products in their medicine cabinet or shower caddy well after they've exhausted their usefulness, which is the first bit of advice offered by a new article from Better Homes and Gardens. An especially good tip the news source provides is for people who spend a lot of time in the morning fixing their hair. Hair products - gels, sprays, combs, curlers and hair dryers - could be kept in one big bin under the sink. That way, they're all in he same place, and won't be taking up extra space on the sink counter top or in the medicine cabinet.
Think about towel storage
Both BHG and the official website of Martha Stewart encourage using a bit of creativity when it comes to storing towels. BHG notes that shelves above the toilet could make great places to keep those fluffy post-bath or shower necessities, while Martha Stewart points to a few off-kilter products that could save storage space and recommends putting bars on the bathroom door or installing cubbyhole shelves somewhere around the bathroom.
Both sources also offer pointers for keeping makeup - which can also result in clutter - arranged in a convenient but space-conscious way. Martha Stewart recommends putting drawer divers into shelves, so lipstick, mascara, and other makeup products all have their own designated storage spaces. BHG says something similar, except the BHG people are more keen on expandable makeup organizers that can be placed in a small drawer and keep makeup from scattering around a sink counter.
