Heads or tails – organization or storage?

Posted on: July 22,2015

The bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. Few rooms serve so many purposes and house as many assorted items. No matter what size it is, storage and organization are vital to keeping your bathroom clutter-free, organized, relaxing, and welcoming.

For some people, there is a constant need for more storage in the bathroom. No matter what’s there already, there needs to be more. More drawers, more shelves, more racks… Luckily, there are dozens of ways to add storage in a bathroom, regardless of its size. The key is to use the space wisely. Create vertical storage by going up the walls with shelves. Forget a pedestal sink and go with a vanity. Embrace the retro chic of the classic medicine cabinet.

The other side of the coin, though, is that whatever space you have must be well-organized. If you can’t find stuff in the drawers, shelves and racks, what good are they? To keep the many assorted accouterments of your bathroom in check, think of how you use them – When do you need them? How often? Where do you need them to be? For example, are you storing your extra shampoo or toilet paper down the hall in the linen closet? That’s hardly practical if you find yourself in the shower or at the end of a roll! Think of how you use things, and where you need them to be stored for maximum efficiency.

One of the keys to organization – no matter what room – is getting rid of stuff. You absolutely must be willing and able to pore over your stuff and chuck what you aren’t using. Why do you have 10 bottles of shampoo? Are you using it all? Of course not. So why do you have so much of it?  You cut your hair short years ago, so why do you have drawers full of barrettes and pony-tail holders?

The bottom line? Efficient storage space and thorough organization are both important as you plan your dream bathroom.
