Decluttering The Bathroom

Three Steps to Organizing Your Bathroom

The bathroom is the place where we freshen up in the morning, clean up after a long day at work, and get ready for a night out. It is also the room that is most often neglected and can quickly become cluttered. An organized bathroom is easier to keep clean, find the items needed, and helps reduce stress says the experts at Poshh. These steps can help you when it comes to decluttering the bathroom, providing a clean and well organized space for you to keep moving forward in life!

When was the last time you used that colour or shade? How long have you had that brush? The first step in decluttering the bathroom is to remove items that you have not used in a long time or have had too long. Clearing the bathroom of items that you do not use will make decluttering and maintaining cleanliness much easier. Hygiene products that are held on to for too long can collect bacteria that could be harmful to the body.

However, simply getting rid of some of your bathroom items now may not be enough to keep your bathroom decluttered. Consider establishing your own 2-for-1 rule. For every item that is brought into the bathroom two are removed. This could be done by giving them away to your friends. This will ensure that future clutter is not because there are too many items in the bathroom. Optimizing your bathroom’s functionality and aesthetic can be as simple as choosing the right fixtures, such as concealed showers, which can enhance the space’s efficiency and style without contributing to clutter.



Now that only the essentials are left in the bathroom, the second step is to consider how to organize your items. The items you use everyday should be easily accessible. In a large bathroom these will probably be items within arms reach.

Other items that you do not use as often, the ones you use when you are hosting family and friends or when you go out for the night, can be placed further away. In smaller bathrooms it is possible that only items that are used every day may actually be available in the bathroom. It may be better to store the items that are not used as often in another room.


Making Room

Now that everything is organized it is time to place all your items in the bathroom. Since most bathrooms are small compared to other rooms in the home, space efficiency is very important. In fact, this may be the key to organizing and maintaining your bathroom. A few well selected pieces of furniture can make all the difference when decluttering your bathroom!

The first piece of furniture that should be considered is known as a vanity. A vanity is simply a dressing table often consisting of a sink and a cabinet. Some collections of vanities can be hung on the wall. This not only allows the vanity to be placed just where you want but also creates space underneath the vanity for other items such as a small wastebasket or a small step. Items that are used on a fairly regular basis can be placed in the cabinet.

While all bathrooms have a mirror, many of them would benefit from having a medicine cabinet.  A medicine cabinet is a cabinet that hangs on the wall and has a mirror placed on the front. Items that are used daily should be placed here for greatest convenience. As the name suggests, common medicines such as pain or allergy relievers can also be placed here.

Lastly, if the bathroom is large enough a standalone cabinet would be suitable for the rest of the items in your bathroom. Since space is the most important issue in decluttering bathrooms you should look for a taller, more lean cabinet
