(un)Spring Cleaning: 5 Tips for Organizing Your Bathroom

Round Rock Tenant Organizing Her Bathroom Drawers A good number of Round Rock renters will find it challenging to keep the bathroom organized. However, an already neat and clean bathroom is easier to maintain — it can even improve your morning routine! Clutter will only bring about feelings of anxiety or frustration. So, an organized bathroom can help you relax, instead of worrying about the things that need to be kept. To get to that point of having an organized bathroom, though, you have to really put in the effort and time! Here are a few tips that can help you organize your own bathroom.


In creating an organized bathroom, the first step to take is to gather and get rid of all clutter. Most of us need to realize that we have way too many things inside our bathrooms, a lot of which are not being used at all. This should be a good reason to go through your cabinets, drawers, and shelves so as to determine which items to keep and which to toss. If the item is expired, it’s a no-brainer — it instantly goes to the trash. Lump items that are the same and take stock. Duplicate items should automatically be candidates for trash, especially when they’ve been kept and not used for the past year. And then, take the items that you intend to keep and organize them.

Categorize to Organize

After all the decluttering is done, categorizing should be a lot easier. This makes organizing so much easier. If this bathroom is only for you, then you can categorize it according to your routine needs. For example, you may want to set up a shelf, bin, or drawer for your morning routine and then another for the evening routine. If the bathroom is shared, though, then you can place a caddy for each person’s personal items. Then, the caddies can be mounted onto a shelf or cabinet.

Invest in Clear Storage Containers

A disorganized bathroom comes about when no one knows where things are supposed to be. One solution to this is making use of clear storage containers. These containers can be used to store your already categorized items. Shallow drawer organizers can be great for keeping toothbrushes, makeup, and other small items neat. If you have taller containers, you can use those to separate certain items in shelves or cabinets.

A Place for Everything

As you re-organize your bathroom, don’t forget to designate a place for items in the room. In doing so, you can avoid going back to clutter. Pros will tell you that it’s a good idea to keep things off of the bathroom counter. Instead, you can use bins, drawers, and baskets for storage. Make sure to label your storage containers, as well. It helps keep everything in place so that you can easily find items when you need them.

Use Your Space Effectively

Bathrooms are often cluttered because they are small. Usually, there’s not a lot of space to work with, and that can be very challenging for most of us. Still, no matter how small the space, there’s almost always some unused space inside your bathroom that can be utilized. Hooks behind doors, storage containers attached to the cabinet doors, and the space above the toilet are all potential storage areas. You can try to maximize the use of these spaces to keep your bathroom clean and organized.
