Your master bathroom should be a peaceful sanctuary! Considering that it's the place you get ready each morning, the primary bathroom can set the tone for your morning and, if organized, can help streamline your daily routine.
In this post, we've broken down the bathroom organizing process into manageable steps to help you create a serene and simplified space. We will also be sharing our favorite products that we use in nearly all bathrooms that we organize!
Step 1: Empty and Assess
We always begin by emptying all cabinets, drawers and even the linen closet. This allows you to take stock of what you have, discard expired items, and identify duplicates. As you sort through your bathroom items, group similar items together into categories.
Common bathroom categories include:
Step 2: - Time for a good edit!
It's time to pare down things to only what you need. Go ahead and toss expired items and medications and then assess the items left. Your goal should be to only keep products that you love and use.
Avoid the tendency (that we all have) to keep something out of obligation or guilt (i.e. "I paid a lot for this specialty hair product " even if you never used it. The same idea applies to gifts-no guilt for getting rid of the unnecessary!)
This process will also serve to help you take stock of what you have on hand so that you don't overbuy during your next trip to Costco (we are all guilty of this!)
Pro-Tip: The next time you’re ready to purchase makeup or skincare items, take the time for a skincare consultation at Sephora or another retailer that offers these. This will ensure that you purchase only those products that you will actually use!
Step 3: Invest in Organizing Products that work
Before you put everything away, you will need some products to contain like items and categories. Most people feel overwhelmed at the array of options out there but we've got you covered! Here are our go-to bathroom organizing essentials!
If you have drawers, we highly suggest you get a multipack of these Home Edit acrylic drawer organizers. We pair them with the multipack of these longer acrylic organizers for the perfect combination that can be combined to fit into just about any bathroom drawer!
