How To Keep The Bathroom Sorted

Without exception, the bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the home. 

Every family member will use the space at least once a day, so it’s vital to keep it tidy and sorted at all times. 

This quick and useful resource guide will help you sort your own bathroom and many more for clients to come. 

Organise drawers with dividers and containers

We could not live without drawers for bathroom storage. Most bathrooms have drawers within the design of their vanity, making them a fantastic option for many products and items. 

As a point of reference, bathroom drawers are ideal for storing:

  • Make-up
  • Hairbrushes
  • Hair ties
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Facial cleanser and moisturisers
  • Hair appliances 

Now it’s important not to simply throw items into bathroom drawers and hope for the best. Instead, sort items into their separate categories (as listed above) and then use different size containers or dividers to store products.

Keep frequently used items like toothbrushes in the top drawer, leaving the other drawers for items like make-up and hair appliances. Remember to place any hair products within easy reach of hair appliances for ease of use. 

Store spare products beneath the basin

Most vanities also include a cupboard beneath the basin. This is a great location for storing spare products like shampoo bottles and toothpaste. 

Consider using baskets or plastic containers within the cupboard to keep items sorted at all times. 

If you’re lucky to have the space in your bathroom or your clients, consider keeping a stash of spare handtowels or cleaning cloths beneath the sink. This way family members will never have an excuse for leaving mess behind.  

If you’re short on space, a small hook within the cupboard door is great for hanging a single micro-fibre cloth. 

Keep dangerous products up high

Most medicine cabinets are located on the bathroom wall. We recommend placing the cabinet at a height out of reach of small children. If it is in reach of small hands, we recommend storing dangerous or poisonous items, such as medication, nail polish remover and razors, on the top shelf. 

Use lower shelves for items like Band-Aids and bandages. 

As a final point when sorting the bathroom, ensure you take notice of expiry dates on all products and dispose of anything past this date. 

Are you ready to get bathroom sorted? We sure hope so!
