Start the New Year Off Right with These Organizational Tips for Your Bathroom

Don’t you just love walking into your bathroom and having it look like a tornado swept through, tossing everything into one massive heap? Or was that your family?

If you are tired of your bathroom looking that way and not being able to find exactly what you need when you need it, you may be ready for a little organization in the new year. We promise that it will not be that difficult and that you will be more than happy with the results when you are done!

Here are 6 organizational tips for your bathroom to start the new year off right

Go Through Everything and Discard Some of It

You may think that you use everything that has made its way into your bathroom, but when was the last time you really checked? We can guarantee that some of those bottles are empty and a few of those makeup items are past their prime. You may even find a few things that you no longer use, so toss it all and see how much your better your bathroom looks already!

Add Baskets

Baskets can hold a wealth of products and keep it all corralled until you need it. These baskets can be placed in your cabinets, on shelves, on the floor, and you can even hang smaller ones on the wall. The idea with this tip is to group like items together within each basket, so you and everyone else knows where to find things and where to put it all back. 

Add Dividers to Drawers

Drawers in bathrooms can become a jumbled heap after just a day or two of people rummaging around, which is why we recommend adding dividers to each one. This will allow you to separate all your items and you will have an easier time of finding exactly what you are looking for. 

Add Shelves Over Your Toilet

Do not let all that space above your toilet go to waste! We recommend adding some type of shelve above this space to hold items that you need. This is the perfect spot for the baskets that we mentioned above as well. While these shelves will be helpful, we want to urge you to not pack them till they are overflowing, as it won’t make your bathroom look any better than it does now. 

Utilize Apothecary Jars

Apothecary jars or other types of jars will work perfectly for all those smaller items in your bathroom. Think of the cotton balls, hair ties, barrettes, Q-tips, and other everyday items you use. 

Add a Hair Station

All those hair styling tools take up a lot of space, but you can corral it all inside one of the numerous hair stations that are available. These organizers can also hold hair styling products, brushes, combs, and even hair ties and clips. 

These six tips should help you get started on organizing your bathroom in the new year! You may need to implement a few other options to make this space work best for you and your family, but that should be easy if you take a step back and look around the space as you continue to rearrange.
