Bathroom Organization Tips for the New Home Owner

The key to a calm start to the day is having everything organized and at the ready in the bathroom. These bathroom organization ideas will help you keep your towels, toilet paper, and toiletries in order in your new Long Lake Ltd. home!

  1. Organize Your Medicine Cabinet

Do you love a clean countertop? The way to achieve that is to change how you use your medicine cabinet and start using it for the things that you need and use regularly! They are better utilized for everyday grooming supplies rather than medicines.

It all begins by chucking any outdated medicines and relocating excess to another location. Keep items that are alike in their own labeled storage bins underneath the sink or in the linen closet. If you use storage bins then all you have to do is slide out the container for easy access. When you utilize your medicine cabinet for everyday items, you’ll minimize time spent in the bathroom every morning!

  1. Get Hair Product Clutter Under Control

Combs, brushes, curlers, gels, sprays and hair dryers take up a lot of bathroom space. To organize, purchase a plastic tub for under the sink and load it up with all of your supplies. When placing them in the tub, take a minute to evaluate if you use the product often. If not, toss it or donate it. The next time you fix your hair, all you have to do is pull the whole tub out without creating a mess.

  1. Add Towel Storage

If the towel rack in your bathroom isn’t big enough to hang the family’s towels, just add a few hooks. Towel hooks are inexpensive, easy to mount and create more space for each member of the family to hang their towel. They keep the bathroom floor clean and dry and help reduce those pesky fights over whose is whose!

  1. Conquer Your Makeup

Bathroom drawers are not designed to organize its contents or hold different sized makeup containers. An expandable cosmetic organizer will help solve this issue and takes the place of bulky cosmetic bags. Most come with different size compartments that organize lipsticks, blush and eye shadows so you’re not rooting around in a big drawer to find what you’re looking for. Make sure to throw away expired makeup.

  1. Purchase a Shower Caddy

A shower caddy can be your best friend when you’re in the shower but if you purchase one that is too small or too large, it can be a painful cleaning process. There are so many options out there: over the showerhead, suction shelves, and corner caddies. So, what do you choose? Assess your toiletries and pare them down. How many bottles of shampoo do you really need access to in the shower? Consider downsizing and then decide what type of shower organizer best fits your needs.

  1. Claim Toilet Space

When it comes to bathroom organization, especially in guest baths, you really have to get creative. Don’t forget about all of that space over the toilet. Adding a cute shelf over the toilet is a great place to put extra toilet paper, toiletries and even towels. You can find nice shelving a most major home stores for under $100.

  1. Use Apothecary Jars
