Bathrooms should be a place of relaxation and cleanliness. If yours is so disorganized that it’s starting to make you anxious, we can help.

There are ways to calm the chaos.
These five design tactics will help you turn your bathroom into a place of happiness and peace.

Check them out:

Use Trays

Using trays to organize your bathroom is a great way to keep things looking more organized. Not only does it help keep things grouped according to use, but it makes cleanup easier.

How so?

Well, instead of having to pick up each individual item and put it back where it belongs, you’re more inclined to just keep the items on the tray.

Also, when it comes time to disinfect the counters, you simply pick up the tray and wipe underneath. You’ll only have to pick up one item instead of five!

Plus, you can find some really cute bathroom trays to bring in some style and color!

Upgrade Your Mirror

One of the easiest ways to make your bathroom feel more luxurious is to upgrade your boring mirror to something more eye-pleasing.

Investing in a large mirror is a good way to make your bathroom feel bigger. Mirrors create the illusion of a larger room, so the bigger the mirror, the bigger the space will feel.

A fancy mirror with a decorative frame can be the focal point of your bathroom. If you want the space to look more regal, find a gold-painted picture frame in a thrift store and use it to frame your mirror!

You can also invest in a mirror that expands from the floor to the ceiling to make your bathroom feel taller.

Organize Your “Command Center”

Every bathroom has a command center. You know, the area with the soap dispenser, toothbrush holder, and other frequently used items.

It’s easy for this area to be a disaster. But, you should use it to make your bathroom more inviting. 

You can organize your bathroom command center by decorating it with stylish, matching pieces. A matching soap dish, rinsing cup, and toothbrush holder will make it feel more put together.

You can find bathroom decor in just about any size, color, or style. It’s not hard to find things that coordinate with your walls or shower curtain.

And if you can’t find the exact ones you want, you can make them yourself. You can paint mason jars to your desire and decorate them with ribbons for a shabby chic look.

You can also find ways to get rid of all that packaging that clutters up your command center. Mouthwash, for example, can be kept in a fancier bottle than the ugly plastic one it comes in.

Try keeping it in an old-fashioned glass bottle with a stopper. You can also buy a mouthwash dispenser with a spout, similar to a hand soap dispenser. Just don’t forget to get a cute little cup to go with it!

Take Advantage of Narrow Spaces

Bathrooms tend to have a lot of unused space. For instance, that narrow area in between your sink and the wall is probably going unused.

Put those areas to work! You can install some skinny shelves in there!

There are a lot of pull-out solutions that you can use in these areas. Many companies make skinny rolling carts made specifically to fit into deep, narrow spaces.

Ikea makes a lot of great storage solutions for small spaces, such as this pull-out tray for jewelry. This pull-out basket is also a great solution and can fit under any counter. It’s perfect for makeup or extra toiletries. 

There are even pull-out drawers available for purchase, which you can use for anything you want. Of course, it requires a little bit of work to install these items, but the added convenience is worth it.

Extend the Sink Counter

Does your bathroom lack counter space? Could you benefit from having a bit more?

You can extend your counter by installing an extra shelf parallel to it. Your shelf should reach from the edge of the sink, over the back of the toilet, and to the wall. This will give you plenty of space for toiletries and other essentials.

Obviously, the shelf can’t extend as far out from the wall as the sink does. If it did, you’d bump your head whenever you sat on the toilet. But, it can extend as far across the wall as you have space for.

This will provide more working and storage space when your counters don’t suffice.

In Conclusion

A few simple tweaks can turn an uninviting bathroom into a place that you look forward to spendingtime in.

Finding ways to improve the organization and style of your bathroom doesn’t have to be hard or expensive. 

When you take ownership of your bathroom and give it your own personal touch, you feel happier, more relaxed, and more at home when you use it.

Then, all you’ll have to do is buy some bubbles, candles, and wine to treat yourself to a night of self-care!
