(un)Spring Cleaning: 5 Tips for Organizing Your Bathroom

Plant City Tenant Organizing Her Bathroom Drawers Maintaining a bathroom’s cleanliness is not as easy a one would think. In fact, a lot of Plant City renters will find doing that quite challenging. A bathroom that’s organized is one that’s easier to maintain. And, it even helps in your morning routines! Clutter can produce feelings of anxiety or frustration. An organized bathroom, however, promotes relaxation! However, if you want your bathroom to be organized, you have to be willing to put in the time and effort! Here are a few tips that can help you organize your own bathroom.

Declutter

In creating an organized bathroom, the first step to take is to gather and get rid of all clutter. Most people have the tendency to hoard too many things inside their bathrooms. It’s best to look through all of your cabinets, drawers, and shelves so that you are able to keep track of all your items and decide which ones are no longer useful. If the item is expired, it’s a no-brainer — it instantly goes to the trash. Look for items that go together and take stock. Duplicate items should automatically be candidates for trash, especially when they’ve been kept and not used for the past year. Afterward, you may start organizing the items that you actually want to keep.

Categorize to Organize

After all the decluttering is done, categorizing should be a lot easier. Once you’ve done this, organizing will be a walk in the park. If the only person that uses the bathroom is you, then you can simply categorize items according to your routine. For example, you may want to set up a shelf, bin, or drawer for your morning routine and then another for the evening routine. If the bathroom is shared, though, then you can place a caddy for each person’s personal items. Those caddies can then be placed on a shelf or a cabinet.

Invest in Clear Storage Containers

One sign of a disorganized bathroom is when people are clueless as to where items are. So that things are easy to spot, invest in some clear storage containers. After categorizing your items, you can store them in these containers. Shallow drawer organizers can be great for keeping toothbrushes, makeup, and other small items neat. To provide organization for shelves and cabinets, you can utilize taller containers to divide certain items.

A Place for Everything

As you re-organize your bathroom, an essential step is to designate a place for each of the items kept in the room. If not, you run the risk of returning to clutter. It’s also a good idea to keep the bathroom counter cleared off of any loose items. Instead, go for bins, drawers, and baskets. Don’t underestimate the practice of labeling storage containers — it works wonders for keeping track of where things are!

Use Your Space Effectively

Bathrooms are often cluttered because they are small. Usually, there’s not a lot of space to work with, and that can be very challenging for most of us. Still, you will have, at the very least, some unused space in the bathroom. You should make full use of whatever space is available to make your bathroom look neat. Hooks behind doors, storage containers attached to the cabinet doors, and the space above the toilet are all potential storage areas. In utilizing these small spaces, you will surely be able to keep your bathroom clean and organized.
