With so many items to store in the bathroom, we sometimes feel it hard to organize our bathroom cabinets. Not long ago, you knew exactly what was there. And now you will have to search through rummage for what you are looking for. It simply means you need to organize your grey bathroom cabinets so you can be less stressed with an assurance that everything will be at easy access when you need it.
In this article, we are discussing a few easy steps to declutter and tidy up the bathroom storage.
Steps You Need to Take to Organize Bathroom Cabinets.
Our step-by-step guide will help you to organize all types of cabinets, including wall hung or a freestanding vanity units.
Step 1. Remove Everything from the Vanity Unit’s Drawers
The first step is to empty your cabinet drawers. Once there is nothing inside, you can clean it from inside. You can use the water mixed with cleaning liquid or a disinfecting spray to wipe it offer. If you notice any hard-to-clean stains or marks, then you will need a scrubber or sponge scourer to remove them. Let it dry for a few minutes, and then you can start putting your items back into it.
Step 2. Use Drawer Organizer in the Cabinet.
The disorganization starts when you open the drawer and items inside it move due to its impact. It will remain tidy if not move like that. Therefore, we recommend using a drawer organizer in each of drawer. So, everything remains in place for a long time without the need for reorganizing it after every day. Most of these come with non-slippery base that prevents any movement when opening or closing the storage section. It can be especially suitable for freestanding vanity units that are more prone to such disorganization during movements.
Step 3. Sort and Group the Items
To start with organization, you will first need to sort the similar items together. For example, you can divide all the items into different groups like shaving items in one group, make-up in another, face and body care items, and oral care products will also be in separate categories. If you have a bigger free standing turin vanity unit with multiple drawer sections, then you can designate each section for one or two groups of items. It may, however, not be possible with a single drawer vanity unit.
Step 4. Remove Unused or Rarely Used Items.
Once all your items are sorted into different groups, it will be easier to figure out which items you use daily or every second day. These are the items you need most at easy and quick access. You can consider removing any unused or rarely used items to place them somewhere else. Even if you want to keep them in your bathroom cabinet, it will be better to designate the lowest drawer for such items. It will help you to organize the items that you need most and make space for more too. Once all such items are removed, you will realize there was a lot of storage space available that was going to waste for no reason.
Step 5. Look For Duplicate Items
Sometimes, we get multiple items either for backup or simply due to forgetting that we already have them in our bathroom cabinet. For example, we may have multiple soaps, safety razors, shampoos, or any similar items that we may not need soon. Even if you need them after a few days, they can be moved to a lower drawer or any other cupboard in our bedroom. You simply store that item when you need it.
Step 6. Plan a Storage for Toiletries and Electric Items.
It may be problematic to store so many toiletries and awkwardly shaped electric items in the small drawers. These items can quickly fill up all the available space. You should consider the size of your freestanding vanity unit before putting such items there. It may be a better idea if you can only keep only small items or even if it’s essential to keep them separately. For example, an electric shaver and toothbrush, including a lot of toilet rolls without urgent need, can be a big problem.
Step 7. Arrange Items for Storage
If you are using a bathroom cabinet organizer, then you can start putting each group of items in each one of them. Make sure that you use the storage space efficiently so no space goes wasted. Try to keep items separately and if possible, label them appropriately. It will help you better organize the space and keep every tidy. In case you don’t have an organizer for each drawer, you can spread a foil on the surface and start putting items in the drawer to keep them apart as much as possible. There is also a possibility to repurpose some household baskets to be used as a drawer organizers.
Step-8 Put Drawers Back in the Bathroom Cabinet.
Once everything is in a place like you want it to be in the drawer, you can start putting them back into your freestanding vanity unit. Once everything is back in the bathroom cabinet, you may consider labeling each section so you remember what is inside the storage.
With so many items to store, the bathroom cabinets can easily become unorganized. There may include items that are you no more or rarely use. All of such items should be removed from the storage. In addition to that, you should group similar items and put them into a drawer organizer. So, everything remains in place for a long time.
