Reduce clutter

Most UK bathrooms are small with limited storage space.

Now add all your skincare, hair, bath and dental products and you’ll soon find that you have messy surfaces where you spend longer searching for what you need and things start falling over – mess!

Corresponding Craig Hoareaumember of APDO and owner of A Tidy Mind, the first step to organizing is decluttering.

Bathrooms are pretty easy to declutter as the products have no sentimental value and you know what to use and what not to use.

Be brutal and realistic. You will not use the hotel sample bottles collected on your travels.

If you’re lucky enough to have drawers and shelves in your bathroom, try not to fill them completely with products just because you have the space.

That means they certainly don’t belong in your limited bathroom storage space.

Start decluttering by setting aside everything you use every day, your absolute essentials.

Separate any extras that can be put away and products that can be donated or thrown away. (In the UK, unused beauty products can be donated to Beauty Banks).

Consider whether you really use the half-used shampoo bottles and creams that can’t be easily recycled.

It’s hard to take just throwing them away, but at the same time you don’t treat your home like a landfill.

Either you finish using them, give them away to friends, post them on a free sharing app/website like Facebook Marketplace, or they end up in the trash.

Also consider items you may have on the shelves for decorative purposes.

If you don’t love them and just gather dust, clean them up and donate them for someone else to enjoy.

Organize

Once you’ve cut out everything that doesn’t belong in the bathroom, think about how to organize it.

Your daily essentials should be easily accessible and within reach.

Other items you don’t use as often, those you use when hosting family and friends, or spare parts can be placed further away.

In smaller bathrooms, only keep items that you use every day.

Keep the extras or products that aren’t used as often in another room or closet.

Use storage space wisely

Popular categories in bathrooms include dental care, hair, face, nails and body.

When storing towels on shelves, roll them up instead of folding them so you can take them out easily without disturbing the rest.

You can organize into these broader categories, or sub-categorize even further (if you have space), e.g. B. serums, creams, detergents, scrubs.

Remember, if you can’t see it, you won’t be using it, so make sure you can see your products clearly.

Some top bathroom organization tips

If you have drawers, use wooden or acrylic drawer dividers for different product groups to create a home for items.

If you share a bathroom with multiple people, consider creating a caddy for each person to store their own products in.

Use acrylic or bamboo canisters to camouflage things like dental floss and cotton balls.

A rattan basket or linen bucket can be good for storing toilet paper.

If you are shopping in bulk and have many spare toiletries, these may need to be removed from the bathroom and placed in a designated drawer/box.

Detached camps like wheeled carts can be used to store items and they can be moved.

Wall-mounted shampoo and soap dispensers or a floating wire basket in the shower can save space and prevent products from being stored on the floor or in the bathtub.

Makeup can be reduced to “everyday” to keep in a makeup bag and more “casual makeup” stored elsewhere like the bedroom.

If you have little or no storage space in your bathroom, consider creating something by buying things like sleek bathroom cabinets.

Hanging wire cube baskets on the wall, adding floating cabinets or shelves, or adding ladder shelves over the toilet are a few other options.

Label most things. Not only does labeling make things easier to find, but it also makes it easier to know where to go back to.

When multiple people use the bathroom, there’s no excuse for not putting things back where they belong.

Keep the meters clear

The countertop or sink in a bathroom should always be free of clutter, so try to keep as few items out as possible.

You can use a tray to store hand soap and moisturizer. So if products aren’t in the tray after you’ve used the space, you know they need to go back to their home.

Add some plants for the finishing touch

No matter what space in your house you are organizing or designing, indoor plants are always a good idea.

You can purify the air, increase your energy and improve mental health. Plants can also help with moisture issues!

Some plants don’t need regular watering, instead soaking up the moisture in the air after a shower.

Air plants are best suited to a bathroom environment.

Some great options are bird’s nest fern, pothos, aloe vera, snake plant, Chinese periwinkle, and spider plant.
