Many of us struggle with cluttered bathrooms. They’re often the smallest rooms in a home or apartment, but are expected to store so many items.
Our toiletries, towels, bedding and cleaning supplies often end up being kept in the bathroom.
HERE ARE 7 TOP TIPS FOR MAXIMISING YOUR BATHROOM SPACE
CREATE SPACE WHERE THERE WASN’T ANY BEFORE
Bathrooms often have bare walls that are left untouched. To make the most of the space, install some floating shelves and place your trinkets, toiletries, and folded up towels on these.
PUT UP HANGING BASKETS
If your space isn’t quite big enough for floating shelves, then hanging baskets are a great option! They can be placed on the smallest of wall spaces and hung in a vertical line. This not only looks trendy and decorative, but serves the purpose of hiding your not-so-exciting bathroom bits and pieces (yes, we’re talking about your extra toilet paper).
MAKE USE OF SHOWER RACKS
Maximise your cupboard space by using shower racks to hold more items in an organised way. Next time you’re at the shops, buy three shower racks instead of one. Use the extra two in your cupboard to store lotions, bubble bath and more in a way that is easily accessible.
INSTALL PULL OUT BASKETS
If you’ve got a bit more time and budget, install pull out baskets in your lower cupboards. This saves you bending down and digging into the back of the cupboard every time you want something. Roll out cupboards are easy and quick.
MAKE YOUR OWN BRUSH HOLDERS
Use a thin piece of wooden pallet hung on the wall as a piece of décor with purpose. Purchase a few glass jars and attach them to the pallet. Now you have the perfect make up brush and ear bud holders, which are easy to access and pretty trendy too.
USE THE SPACE BEHIND YOUR BATHROOM DOOR
Hooks can be extremely nifty when put in the correct place. Towels, shower caps and bath gowns can be hung behind the door to save space and reduce clutter.
7. AND, FINALLY, USE THE INSIDE OF CUPBOARD DOORS AS EXTRA SPACE
Although your cupboard will be packed smartly, there is a world of space on the inside of your cupboard door that you don’t want to miss out on. Install a few little containers for your nail polishes and the beauty products you use every day. No more digging for the mascara.
Bathrooms don’t need to feel like cramped cubby holes; with the right love and attention, they can be one of the most admired rooms in the house.
