The bathroom is the space where most of us begin and end our days. We shower in there in the mornings and get ready, and that experience sets the tone for the hours that lay ahead. We brush our teeth and wash our faces in the evening, preparing for a good night’s sound sleep. It makes sense then, that our bathroom should be a place of calm serenity.
Read on for six simple tips to transform your bathroom.
1. Think Neutral
There are amazing, wildly patterned, bright colored shower curtains, rugs and towels on the market. While these styles might be tempting, they could be overwhelming, especially in a smaller bathroom.
Consider using mostly neutral tones with a few pops of color. This will help create a serene, calming room which naturally lends to a sense of order and organization.
2. Make it Uniform
When possible, make things match. Using uniform refillable bottles for shampoo, conditioner, and body lotion will cut down on visual stimuli and make the bathroom appear and feel more orderly.
A bathroom with three mismatched towels hanging in it will seem much more cluttered than one with three towels of the same color or pattern. Invest in matching bath towels, hand towels, and face cloths.
3. Give Everything a Home
Items that you don’t use that often should be kept out of sight in the medicine cabinet, under the sink, or in drawers.
Things you use every-day should be accessible. Make these items part of your bathroom decor by storing Q-tips and cottons balls in attractive jars and corralling toiletries with a pretty tray.
4. Organize Hidden Spaces
Keep like items together. For instance, dedicate one large drawer to your hair dryer, flat iron, brush, and styling products. When things are easy to find, you save time and experience more order psychologically.
Reduce clutter by getting rid of stuff you don’t use. When in doubt, throw it out. The chances are unlikely that you’ll miss something that you never use anyway.
5. Utilize Vertical Space
If you don’t have space in the bathroom to spread out, spread up. Get creative with towel bars and shelving to maximize your space. Over the toilet organizers can be a great way to add storage without making the room feel like it’s closing in on you.
6. Keep it Clean
Cleanliness is the mother of order. It doesn’t take long for things to get out of hand–a towel gets tossed on the floor, the toothpaste lid isn’t returned to the tube, and the hairspray gets left out on the counter. Before you know it, the bathroom feels like it’s in total disarray. Nip these enemies of organization in the bud by setting aside five minutes every-day to tidy up and a half hour every week to deep clean.
Life is chaotic, but the bathroom doesn’t have to be. Give these tips a try and see if maintaining an orderly, peaceful bathroom helps to set the tone for orderly, peaceful days and nights.
