The bathroom shouldn’t be a hassle to use. It should be a place for you to relax as you get ready for the day, or wind down from a busy workday. The bathroom can even be a fun place, one where you can give your little girl a new hairstyle.
If any – or all – of your bathrooms aren’t quite where you want them to be organization-wise, the experts with Art of Drawers are ready to help. Here are a few tips to help make your bathrooms not only more functional, but also more comfortable. If you would like to learn more about how we can help, use our online contact form or give us a call at (770) 800 8410.
Declutter, Declutter, Declutter
Most people have a whole lot of stuff that they don’t use any longer. They set things aside and forget all about them. After a while, they have so much clutter that they feel overwhelmed. In order to get your bathrooms organized, you’re going to have to make a commitment to declutter. But there are some other creative methods you can use to square them away.
One way you can declutter is to get some shower caddies. Instead of having items such as medications, facial cleanser, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes scattered around the bathroom, you can keep them in convenient, central locations.
The less clutter you have in your bathrooms, the easier they’ll be to navigate. That will make life easier for your family, as well as any guests that stay over.
Focus on Use Cases
There’s a pretty good chance that different bathrooms in your home are in different states of disorganization. But no matter how small a bathroom may be, there are things you can do to make it much easier to use. Let’s take a look at the master bathroom first, followed by the guest bathroom and the kids’ bathroom.
The Master Bathroom: Optimize for Getting Ready, Pampering, and Relaxing
This is where you spend the most time when you’re in the bathroom, so it’s probably the one that could use the most work (unless you have children, which we’ll get to in a bit). If you find getting ready is a chore every morning, think about adding hooks and shelves to your walls.
Hooks are fantastic. You can use them to hang not only towels, but also robes and even your PJs. If you like, you might even be able to put up hooks inside your bathroom cabinets for things such as hair brushes and hair dryers. Use them in the shower for items such as washcloths and back scrubbers.
Shelves can be just as essential to your bathroom reorganization. Instead of stuffing your cabinets with towels, for instance, just add some new shelving to your walls.
The Guest Bathroom: Optimize for Frequent Use and Guest Storage
Whether you only have guests over the holidays, or you entertain on a regular basis, you want the guest bathroom to be inviting and accessible. Do you have enough drawers for items they might bring as part of their overnight bag? If you don’t have enough room for things they might forget, like hand sanitizer, mouthwash and body lotion, consider adding hooks and shelves like in the master bathroom.
How is the lighting in the guest bathroom? Do people have to fumble around because they can’t see as well as they do in other parts of your home? Think about adding some battery-powered lights and keep them on the counter. You could possibly use some higher-wattage light bulbs as well.
The Kids’ Bathroom: Make it Easy to Clean, Organize, and Maintain
If you have more than two or more children and only one bathroom for them to use, you’re probably tired of the wrestling matches every morning. One child is mad because the other just won’t get out. By improving the organization of this bathroom, you could keep that fussing to a minimum.
Here are a few ways to do just that, with the help of Art of Drawers.
- Pull-out shelves. Do your kids complain because they can’t find something they need, such as a hairbrush, a handheld mirror, or something else? Pull-out shelving could be the answer to your problem. We can install pull-out shelves in your cabinets that are not just functional, but also beautiful. They’ll also increase your cabinet storage dramatically.
- Lazy Susan. Your cabinets might not have enough room for pull-out shelves, or enough room under the bathroom sink. We can install a lazy Susan to make finding bathroom items a breeze.
- Magnetic strips. Another way to save space and improve organization is to install magnetic strips. You can use them to hold small items, such as scissors, tweezers and more.
- Organizers. If the drawers in the kids’ bathroom are cluttered with creams, cosmetics, lotions and the like, we can provide you with organizers that will make it incredibly easy to find everything. You can label each one with the items that go in that specific area, as well as who it belongs to.
Hire Art of Drawers to Optimize Your Storage Solutions
These are just a few of the organization solutions we can provide at Art of Drawers. If more than one person uses a bathroom in your home, it needs to be as organized as possible – and you’ll need as much storage space as possible. Remember to utilize your walls. Beautiful artwork is nice, but if it takes away from the function of your bathroom, then it really doesn’t do a whole lot for you.
