Bathroom storage. Oh, the struggle. Why can’t we ever seem to have enough? Once upon of time, my bathroom looked like it had been hit by a tornado made up of hair products, makeup and toiletries. And don’t even get me started on my kids bathroom…talk about a DISASTER!
Why is our bathroom always a mess? Is it too small? Do I have too much stuff (I’m sure my husband would go with this one)? What is it?!!
Finally, I looked around and realized the problem: NOTHING HAD A HOME. Yes!! I needed to give everything a home. That way, when I finished using something, I could put it back in it’s home. Duh!
So, I took these simple steps to create de-clutter my bathroom. I hope they help you as much as they helped me!
1 Under Cabinet Storage
This one should’ve been obvious for me. When we first moved in our home, there was only one shelf under the sink. Imagine that. So, my husband took a quick trip to Home Depot and created something similar to the photo above. My life was instantly changed!
2. On the Sink Storage
I grabbed some baskets from TJ Maxx for our everyday items like toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, deodorant, etc. So, those things are there and ready when we need them, but they are not creating an eyesore.
3. Tissue Holder
Sounds simple, right? Well, it was a problem for us. We literally had tissue stacked on the floor beside the toilet. Sad but true. This inexpensive fix just made sense!
4. Wall Storage
We don’t realize how useful walls can be. Not only can we hang pretty artwork on them, but we can also use them for storage. The bathroom is the perfect place!
These super simple changes made a dramatic difference in my bathroom. Let me know if they work for you too!
