Keeping accessories and beauty products always in order can be tricky. The bathroom is the room where bottles, accessories and personal care products of all kinds usually abundant. Unfortunately, the same does not always apply to order. Instead of storing items unorganised in a drawer we can save plenty of time by using smart storage methods and innovative organisers.
The bathroom is one of the most important areas of our homes that we use on a daily base. Several people use it at different times of the day to get ready or to enjoy moments for yourself. Because of that it is important to keep accessories and beauty products in order to avoid unnecessary frustration and time wasting.
But how is it possible to have a bathroom that is always in order and looks chic at the same time? Read on to discover 4 helpful tips for organising accessories and beauty products!
Keep only what you really use
A good starting point for optimising your bathroom is to get an overview over the things you own again. Often, we do not even know what lies in our unorganised drawers because we only add new items, but never really sort them out. Over time, so many things accumulate in the bathroom that we do not even know what we own. It is difficult to keep order and prepare yourself calmly when you have to rummage through so many items to find what you are looking for. So, keep only what you really use. Get rid of expired products, of the ones you do not need or those you no longer like. By doing so, you will avoid various unpleasant situations. Such as unintentionally buying a product twice because you could not remember it, or taking up space with empty bottles and dried-out creams.
When you are done with sorting out your items, keeping your bathroom always in order will be way easier.
Classify by type and use
A classification according to the type and the frequency of use is one of the bases for an even more functional room.
In other words, group your products according to the body part and the time of day you need them. This method will smoothen your morning routine, it will optimise your time when you are getting ready to go out and you will always know exactly where the item you are looking for is located.
The easiest division is to create an area for body products, such as lotions and creams, one for hair care, including shampoos and masks. As well as, one for nail polishes and manicure accessories, one for cosmetics and facial cleansing products.
It seems to be a simple organisation method, but it will definitely help you to keep your bathroom in order.
Find the ideal location
Once you have decided what to keep and divided your personal effects, it is time to find the right location for them.
Since they are accessories and personal care products, they need a well-accessible place to avoid wasting time looking for them.
Store products that you use on a daily base, such as cleaners, ready to hand on trolleys, shelves or inside the drawers. Less regularly used items can be stored in cabinets.
Furthermore, it is also important to keep the necessary conditions for an optimal storage of each product in mind. For example, perfumes should be stowed in dry places, protected from light and temperature fluctuations.
Combine tidiness with design
Combining tidiness with design and efficiency is way easier than it looks like.
For instance, innovative drawer organisers made from natural materials add a chic touch to your bathroom and will help you to find your items easily. A perfect solution for brushes, liquid cosmetics or wipes. Additionally, you can choose between holders with lids to hide their contents from view or leave them in plain sight. Ideal for toothbrushes, brushes, razors and much more.
If you prefer to show your cosmetics, cotton pads and nail polish, then choose elegant make-up holders. This is not just a way how to keep your items organised, but it adds a beautiful deco touch to your bathroom as well.
Bulky bottles of shower gels, soaps or hair care products are best stored on wall-mounted shelves. You can add a shelf on the side of the sink or in the shower, a hair dryer holder or even a soap dispenser to reduce plastics.
To spice up your bathroom, use decorative baskets to order your accessories. Handmade baskets which are made from natural materials are perfect decorative eye-catchers in your bathroom. Choose fabric baskets for shelves or inside the cupboards. These storage elements are not only beautiful to look at, but also very spacious and offer room for all your items.
Tidying up your bathroom seems very exhausting at first sight, but it definitely pays off and brings plenty of benefits to your life. You will be able to optimise time and space by combining functionality, organisation and elegance at the same time.
