Decluttering Tips for a Small Bathroom

Small spaces can be the most challenging to organize because there just isn’t a place to store everything you need.

This is as true for the bathroom as it is for any room in your home or office: when you create a place to put things, it’s so much easier to have a neat and organized living space.

Decluttering Tips for a Small Bathroom

Corner Shelves Take advantage of corners: Corners often get ignored when it comes to decorating and storage – especially storage. However, small items, such as the toilet brush, spare rolls of toilet paper, and even cleaning supplies can be stored out of sight in triangular cabinets and shelves.

Use the wall space effectively: The space above eye level is an ideal spot to hang shelves and small cabinets, or even hanging  baskets for storing things like towels and washcloths, or healthcare and beauty supplies.

Over-the-Shower Caddy Use a shower caddy: A shower caddy that hangs over the shower head or is suspended with suction cups provides a place to keep your shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, as well as shavers and a washcloth or body puff.

Install an over-the-door hook: An over-the-door hook (or two) gives you a place to hang a robe, a towel, a change of clothes, or even a small mesh laundry bag, which can replace a hamper in your small bathroom.

Under Counter Storage Baskets Use containers in available space: If you are lucky enough to have under-counter space in your small bathroom, take advantage of it for storage and organizing purposes. Use plastic containers and baskets to store things in, and label them so you can quickly find your things when you need them.

You can have pretty much everything you need to get ready on hand in your bathroom, even if it’s small, by taking advantage of organizing tools like hooks, shelving, shower caddies, and corner shelves.

10 Best, Easy Tips for Organizing Your Home

No matter how big the mess is, getting organized almost always starts at the same place.

  1. You have to sort things and you have to have a place to put them.
  2. If every inch of space is filled with clutter, then you have to make a new space for things as you sort them.
  3. Plastic bins for storage are perfect for creating a space to put things, so the sorted items are separate from the rest.
  4. This also lets you see your progress by simply looking into the storage containers.
  5. Get at least one large storage bin, because when you really start making progress, your storage containers fill up fast!
  6. A large bin lets you work longer without stopping or shifting your focus away from your organizing task.
  7. If you don’t need it, throw it away, sell it, or donate it to charity.
  8. Pace yourself – if you over-do it and end up with an aching back or sore legs, it’s tempting to give up.
  9. Make daily progress and record it in a diary or photo journal. This gives you something to be proud of – and increased self-esteem reduces the chance of you becoming a clutter-re-offender.
  10. Ask for help or share your  stress with someone who has been through it – or someone who is going through it now.
