The bathroom countertop can be a constant mess challenge. It gets used every day – most likely twice a day! Removing everything from the counter and storing it in a cabinet would be great but the reality is that it becomes a pain because you find yourself searching for more storage or can not find anything because it is in the way back of the cabinets! And after all that, you then find yourself again resorting back to the same old system and the countertop become the same old unorganized mess again.
Do you want your day to day bathroom items in a place where they will not become an eye sore? Well if so, here are my bathroom countertop tricks.
Here is goes. First start by sorting your countertop items into two piles. One - What you use everyday or every other day. And two - What you use every once and while. Once you have your two piles, then ask yourself if you have more countertop space, back of the door space or wall space. This helps you decide if you should use the wall to store regularly used items. The door (in an over-the-door organizer with individual pockets), on the countertop (in a container), or a little of all three!
EASY? Well easier said then done. When it comes to deciding whether you are going to use your countertop space, back door or wall space, one must know the right organization products to use.
I think it when it comes to your countertop, I love a simple clean look. That is why I love these clear glass jars from Crate and Barrel.
I recently just went through the same thing where our bathroom countertop was just a mess, someday I couldn't even bare to go into the bathroom. So I ran to Target, bought some plastic containers and BOOM. One organized AND labeled bathroom Cabinet. Happy wife, happy husband, happy home!
All it takes is time, a label maker and $45 to make your bathroom one you actually want to get ready in.
