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

Spokane Valley Tenant Organizing Her Bathroom Drawers Keeping a bathroom organized is not at all an easy task, especially for Spokane Valley renters. But, keeping an organized bathroom can be easier to maintain, and it can help in your morning routines! Clutter can pave the way for negative energy like anxiety and frustration. Hence, make sure your bathroom is organized to promote feelings of relaxation. To get to that point of having an organized bathroom, though, you have to really put in the effort and time! The key to organizing your bathroom lies in the following five practical tips.


The first step to an organized bathroom is to get rid of all the clutter that you can find. Many people will accumulate a lot of things inside their bathroom which will eventually become clutter. This is why you have to sift through your cabinets, drawers, or shelves so that you can organize your items. The easiest ones to spot and trash are the ones that are expired. Group similar items together and take stock. For items that are duplicated, throw them out if they’ve been left in your stash untouched during the past year. It is then that you can look at the items you want to keep and start organizing them.

Categorize to Organize

After decluttering, you can start categorizing your items. This makes organizing so much easier. If the bathroom is only being used by you, you can categorize items in such a way that it accommodates your routine. For example, you may want to set up a shelf, bin, or drawer for your morning routine and then another for the evening routine. But if the bathroom is used by other people, you can give each of them a caddy for their personal items. The caddies can then be put on a shelf or a cabinet.

Invest in Clear Storage Containers

A disorganized bathroom comes about when no one knows where things are supposed to be. To address this issue, it helps to have clear storage containers. Your items, which are already categorized, can be placed in these containers. Shallow drawer organizers can be great for keeping toothbrushes, makeup, and other small items neat. You can make use of taller containers to keep certain items together in shelves or cabinets.

A Place for Everything

As you re-organize your bathroom, make it a point to designate a place for each of your items. In so doing, you can prevent clutter from happening all over again. Generally, most people find that it helps to keep items off of the bathroom counter. Another alternative would be bins, drawers, and baskets. It’s best practice to label your storage containers. It makes sense, and it makes it easier for you to keep track of your items.

Use Your Space Effectively

Bathrooms are often cluttered because they are small. A small space usually means more of a challenge when it comes to organizing your personal items. More often than not, though, is that there is usually that one small unused space to work with to keep your bathroom tidy. Hooks behind doors, storage containers attached to the cabinet doors, and the space above the toilet are all potential storage areas. It’s important that you know how to utilize these spaces so that you can keep your bathroom clean and organized.
