Organizing the bathroom. Not a fun topic I grant you, but one that must be tackled in a particular bathroom in our home that is shared primarily but us five females. This bathroom gets heavy traffic and has become, I will admit, rather scary when you open the bathroom cabinets and drawers.
When you take all our hair products, my makeup, hair brushes and accessories and throw in the five million feet of cords attached to all the hair styling devices that are under the sink, you get the chaos that I cannot stand and that seriously needs tackling.
I went searching for inspiration before I buy anything to tackle the bathroom organizing that is high on my to do list.
This open shelf concept is pretty, but I will say would not last a day in that bathroom. However, I have enjoyed this picture.
Now this idea is genius and I think using the doors for additional storage is one idea I am going to implement for sure. The magnetic knife strip works perfectly to hold all the clippers and metal hair clips.
Convincing my husband to screw anything to the doors would be impossible so I think I will have to use something that sticks. That will limit me to light weight storage.
Maybe I could convince him that it would work on the wider parts of the trim around the door frame like this one. I also like the toilet paper corralled in a basket. We use a lot of the stuff so remaining stocked up is vital.
One thing I know for sure I will do, is use containers labeled like these to hold different categories in the cupboards. One for first aid is great for all the ace bandages and large things you don't use often.
I could add another free standing cabinet but I really believe in less is more. Simplify life with less so a thorough purging of what is not being used or has expired and then organizing the bathroom items by category and type in like containers that are labeled, is going to be my plan of action. I will share once the task is completed. Stay tuned.
