Mastering The Art Of Bathroom Counter Organization

Last updated on July 20th, 2023

Bathrooms are our sanctum, away from the hustle and bustle of household activity. Most of us spend a bundle on getting the aesthetics right for this “me” place, but keeping it pristine is another matter. While we do the needful by keeping the floor clean and dry, an organized counter space can be challenging. There are far too many “essentials” crowding the space.

Dealing with them is one thing, but when you see a mangled toothpaste tube dribbling at the tip, you want to tear out your hair and scream. Hey, you nearly broke the bank for the latest hair growth concoction, so leave your hair alone and go through these tips to hold on to your sanity.

Get a Measure of the Space

The first thing to consider is how much space you have. If you have a luxurious two-wash basin affair, you have a lot of opportunities to get a classy look. If you are “space-challenged,” then you will need to rethink your counter-organizing. Hey, a small counter space is not the end of the world. There is a lot of storage scope in the tiniest of spaces.

De-clutter Non-essentials

With the markets flooded with new trends and beauty products, it’s difficult to control the urge to buy the latest in hair and body care. The result? More beauty aids than we know what to do with! To tackle this bludgeoning issue, get rid of the stuff that is past the expiration date. Next, store the stuff that you don’t use regularly in the cabinets or your vanity. And hey, why hold on to stuff when you know you will never use it? To assuage the guilt, give the products to your house help. You will make her day!

Evaluate Your Essentials

There are some products that you just need to get your hands on, such as your makeup remover or your face wash. So, how do you organize them? The best way to deal with this is to spread your wares before you. Segregate them as per their use so that you can store them accordingly. A face wash is something that you need more than a couple of times a day. Keep these daily-use essentials on your counter space. Store the rest of your stuff in shelving units, under the vanity storage space, or in quaint wicker baskets.

Work Your Display Around Your Routine

Streamline products such as face swabs and towels depending on their use on the counter to make your job easier. You can allot appealing containers for a neat look. For small counter spaces, a shelving unit next to the mirror works wonders. If all else fails, get a small trolley to store your beauty aids. Now that you have only the essentials on the counter, you can display them for better reach.

Add Interesting Organizers

Organizers are always an exciting part of bathroom decor. However, before you go out and buy them in bulk, make sure you don’t go overboard with your shopping. So, what are your options? Let’s check out some neat ideas:

  • Trays are an interesting option. These can be wickerwork, acrylic, or wooden, depending on your decor and taste, to house your sundries.

  • Quaint matching jars for your essentials are a great way to add oomph to your decor.

  • Wickerwork baskets are ideal for your rolled napkins and body care products.

  • Porcelain or earthenware dishes are perfect for your trinkets.

Add the Accessories

Once you have taken care of the nitty-gritty, it’s time to focus on accessorizing. Plants are a perfect addition to your bathroom decor. These can be real or faux plants, dry rushes to go with wickerwork decor, or fresh flowers. A play of textures and sizes is a great way to add nuance to your decor. Make sure your rolled towels are color-coordinated to match your bathroom color scheme. You can carry forward the countertop look to other areas of your bathroom for a cohesive look.
