The Most Useful & Used Room - Can you guess?
Updated: Dec 6, 2019
There is no doubt that one of the most-used rooms in your house is going to be the bathroom. This is particularly true when the cooler seasons arrive, and hot showers become the norm. The bathroom can serve many purposes and some of us make use of it more than others (men, it should not take that long to poop!) a well-organized bathroom can help speed up the process of getting work-ready or for a night on the town. Here are some of my favourite bathroom organizing tips.
1 – The Shower Caddy Issue
When you’ve got shampoo dripping down your face and into your eyes the shower caddy is a handy gadget to have. They come in many different designs to fit your needs. Some hang off the back of the shower head, others have suction cups to attach to the wall of the shower, there are also corner shower caddies. When there are so many to choose from, why not go a little wild and get a couple! Choose options that add to the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your bathroom while helping minimize shower clutter.
2 – The Towel Rack
Towels take up room. At least they do when they all end up piled on the floor at the end of the morning shower rush. There are many effective ways to hang towels on racks and all sorts of styles to choose from. You may even find it useful to add additional hooks to the bathroom wall to accommodate all the towel activity. Hanging them will reduce their drying time as well. Just remember, keep towels that are not decorative out of sight for photos and showings when selling your home.
3 – The Medicine Cabinet
Where did we put the band-aids? Sometimes your medicine cabinet ends up collecting a lot more things than it should, and as a result, the items you would expect to find in the medicine cabinet may not be there. Do yourself a favour and clean it out on a regular basis to keep it in order. Use the shelves effectively and be sure to lock it if there are medications children or pets should not have access to.
4 – Don’t be so Flush
The dead space on the wall above your toilet can be an effective storage area, if you know how to use it. Toilet bathroom furniture can be purchased to turn that empty and otherwise useless space into shelving and cupboards to store all sorts of goodies. By using this new space, you end up freeing up space on the countertop, vanity and elsewhere in the bathroom. You may be amazed how much room you now have.
5 – Time to Make Up
Bathroom drawers are a lot like magnets. They tend to attract and collect a plethora of random items. Makeup and other cosmetics tend to find their way into these spaces and that’s alright. Just keep them organized and keep track of what you have so you don’t buy double or triple. A great way to keep tabs on your cosmetics and create an aesthetically pleasing space is to purchase some cosmetic organizers. These handy tools will keep lipstick out of skin cream, eyeshadow away from makeup remover and everything in its rightful place to make it easy to find whatever you may need.
Much More Than Just Tubs and Tile
Bathrooms are an important part of any household. When they are neat, tidy, and organized, they become focal points in a well-designed home.
