Unless you’re reading this from a log cabin somewhere in the woods, odds are your home has a bathroom or two. But while your bathroom may not be the first room you show off to houseguests, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make the most of it. You can easily increase the functionality of your bathrooms with a few fast organizational ideas.
If you find yourself spending more time rummaging through drawers trying to find your makeup than you do actually applying it, now might be a good time to look into draw dividers. Laying wooden boxes or trays (which are available in many size/material combinations) inside your drawers can help organize your personal products and ease the frustration of trying to find your favorite eyeliner.
Adding cubbyholes to your bathroom walls not only provides aesthetic value, but is functional as well. They can hold anything from towels to cotton balls while helping to keep your bathroom accessible and clutter free. MarthaStewart.com offers a DIY guide here for building cubbyholes in your bathroom.
Sharing a bathroom is one of the quickest ways to go from clean to cluttered. An easy remedy for this problem is assigning everyone their own individual drawer in the bathroom. Instead of three people trying to share several drawers, each person is responsible for their own space.
Color Coding Towels
Another issue that comes with sharing your bathroom is trying to keep track of whose towel is whose. If you don’t feel like going out and buying individual towels then the quickest solution is color coding your towels. This quick adjustment will save you from having to buy new towels while ensuring you know which towel is yours.
Over the Toilet Storage
One of the most underutilized spaces in bathrooms is the wall right above your commode. Installing shelving can turn an otherwise unused space into usable storage room. Stores like Lowe’s offer ready-to-install cabinets or you can build your own using a DIY guide.
