Bathroom organization doesn’t have to take a backseat, because of the small size. There are plenty of options for classing up your bathroom.
At least a couple times a day, you will need to visit the bathroom, so finding a way to make it welcoming for you and guests should help give you some peace of mind. If you’re in a living situation, where you’re sharing a bathroom with a roommate, the tiny space can transform into a cluttered mess quickly. While the plain white walls of many apartment bathrooms are uninspiring, by choosing to look at the wall as a blank canvas, you can find a space to display your creativity.
Putting some of your time into decorating and organizing your bathroom will make that shower or bath all the more relaxing at the end of a stressful day. Here are 3 bathroom organization methods worth considering in any apartment bathroom.
Make it appealing
The easiest way to enliven your bathroom is to add color and personality. Start with the shower curtain, as this is the most dominant element in a small bathroom. Pick one that shows off your personality and work around it. If the curtain is multi-colored pick one color you like and match everything to that.
Next, hang a few small pieces of artwork. Match it to the color or theme of your shower curtain. If you can’t pound nails into the wall, use easily removable adhesive hooks that won’t cause damage. Remember, this room has lots of moisture in it so pick artwork that is durable and not too precious.
Curtains, rugs and towels
Ideally, bathroom textiles should match your shower curtain. They soften the look of the hard porcelain and add color. Many apartment bathrooms have frosted or very small windows, but if you want, add curtains. If privacy concerns you, buy curtains in a thick material, not sheer.
Matching rugs and towels are easy to find at big box stores such as Target or Walmart. Not only should they be colorful, but easily washable, especially the bathmat. If you like fuzzy toilet seat covers go ahead and get one of those, too.
Storage and shelving
You may not be able to install shelves, but many stores have freestanding shelves that fit over the back of the toilet. Use brightly colored plastic boxes or cute baskets to hold personal items. If you have roommates, containers are a great way to keep everyone’s hairbrush out of the way and keep your own belongings from being misused. Stick the containers under the sink or on the shelves. Use over the door hooks for towels and clothes.
