The bathroom cabinet is the functional hub of the whole bathroom. It holds everything from spare razors and emergency shampoo, to tweezers and beard trimmers, via toothbrushes and bars of soap. That’s a lot of personal hygiene equipment – so how do you keep it all neatly organised? In this blog, the team from Bella Bathrooms to offer their expert advice on how to organise bathroom cabinets quickly and efficiently whilst complying with any budget.
Tips to keep your Cabinet Tidy:
One of the first tips you can take on board, is that the vast majority of bathroom cabinets or cupboards need separators. Of course, everyone has a shelf or a little section to themselves, but with some handmade separators everything can be divided up into sections, and will appear tidier. Cut up an old cardboard box and repurpose it by covering it with decadent wallpaper or wrapping paper; patterned or plain, it is your choice, but it is best to choose colours or styles that fit with the theme of the bathroom. Simply slot them into the cupboard for easy dividers that will help keep the deodorant separate from the hairspray, and the shower gel separate from the conditioner.
If you have a lot of flannels, perhaps one for each member of the family, or a lot of brushes and make-up accessories, invest in a cheap, small door hanger, a miniature version of those usually used for coats and bags, and clip it to the inside of the cabinet. Hanging flannels like this not only helps to prevent the spread of bacteria, it also allows them to air and dry when they’re not in use. Similarly with brushes, leaving them on countertops or pushed up against other products in cupboards when they are not in use can spread germs; hang them up or place them in a pot upside-down to keep them in prime condition.
If you are someone who stores their hairdryer, curling tongs and straightening irons in a cupboard in the bathroom, ensure that they are stored safely, with all wires wrapped up and not tangled around one another. Attach plastic cups or holders to the back of the doors in each cupboard, and they will safely hold hairdryers, tongs and irons whilst keeping them organised and not allowing their wires to get mixed up. Other accessories like nail trimmers and eyelash curlers can be hung on tiny hooks in the cupboard. If you have any circular eyeshadow pots that are on their way out, hollow them out, clean them, spray paint them white and then affix them to the inside of your cupboard for a perfect place to store hair grips and ties.
Lastly, organisation doesn’t just stop at having a place for everything; you must ensure everyone in the house knows that place, and not just you! Show all family members your newly organised bathroom storage solution and ensure that they know what goes where, to keep the cabinet in tip-top condition.
