Divide and conquer
Now is the time to get into every nook and cranny! Begin by taking everything out of the medicine cabinet and clear out drawers and shelves so you can see what you have before you organise. Take the time to toss expired make-up, first-aid products and medications as these are of no use and only take up space. Once you’ve cleared these away, use drawer dividers to keep your toiletries and make-up organised in the bathroom.
One in, one out policy
While clearing away clutter is important, it is even more crucial to prevent it from building up again. From now on adopt a one in, one out policy which means every time you buy something new, like towels or a beauty products, clear out one you’ve already got to ensure you aren’t creating new clutter.
Hang it up
A bathroom can easily look messy if there is no place to hang your towels and robes. To keep it tidy, hang a small hand towel ring by the sink where it’s needed, install a hook for your bathrobe, and make sure you have a rod to hang your bath towels on. These additions may be simple, but can make a drastic impact on the look of the room.
Keep make-up tidy
It’s so easy for a dressing table or bathroom sink to become a clutter magnet, full of the lotions and potions that we use every day. In order to resist the urge to leave products lying around, use shallow boxes, make-up dividers or vanity drawers to keep everything tidy. To give your bathroom a pop of personality, display a select few beautiful items, such as lipsticks or perfume bottles, on the top of the boxes or drawers.
