When it comes to the bathroom, storage and organization is one of the most important things, especially if it's small. Because 'late' is my middle name and I am not a morning person, it's essential that my "getting ready" zone be extremely organized.
Our bathroom (above) is quite tiny and when we moved into the apartment, it offered little to no storage. I'm talking a tiny medicine cabinet and hardly any space under the sink. No female would be able to work with that, not to mention a product floozy like myself. And don't forget, man friend needed space too. So, we added two more medicine cabinets, some shelves above the door for less frequently used items, and a hamper with shelves for other essential items. Here are some little peeks.
It was important to me that it still be presentable, not just functional. I guess I feel that way about all spaces. Hence, my occupation. The best way to keep it appealing to the eye is to hide the ugly products in boxes, baskets or behind closed doors and store other, not so ugly items in pretty containers or trays.
Also, take advantage of great packaging. If some of the products you use are really beautiful, put those babies on display.
Using a tray to corral your products keeps it much more neat and tidy than if they were just strewn all over the counter.
You can repurpose a dessert tier or cake stand to hold smaller items.
Add open shelving to display your pretty organization.
It's always more interesting to use a beautiful piece of furniture in an unexpected place - and we all know how much I love bar carts.
It's important to keep the ugly stuff, behind closed doors, orderly too. Here are some clever ways to do that.
Use a lazy susan for easier access to your products.
Install a tension rod underneath your sink and hang spray bottles on it. This will free up space on the bottom.
Attach spice racks to the inside of a cabinet door for extra storage.
Speaking of magnets, repurpose a knife rack to store tweezers, bobby pins, eyelash curlers and more.
Install hooks on the inside of a cabinet door and hang your hair dryer from it.
Or, attach a magazine storage box to the side of the sink, like this.
I'm definitely copying this idea.
Hope these tips help.
