Bathrooms are one of the hardest rooms in the home to make function to the way you’d like. Unless you are designing your own bathroom or building a new home, you are pretty much stuck with whatever the previous owner had created for the layout.

This is especially difficult for women who may have toiletries to store, hair essentials and other items that are quick to cause clutter. The solution? Here is a look at how to make your bathroom for functional and organized.

Tips for creating space in the bathroom

When you’re running out of space in the bathroom for items like curling irons and blow dryers, head over to the local hardware store for a couple of simple solutions. Utilizing drawers, cabinets and wall space to your advantage is the key. Adding organizational baskets, trays and organizers for cabinets and drawers is the perfect way to organize items into separate, easily-accessible containers.

For the walls, adding hanging shelves and extra cabinetry is a great way to store extra supplies to keep them off of your limited counter space. You can store extra toilet paper, décor, soaps, hair ties, toothbrushes and more by moving storage to the walls and under the sink.

What to do for Hair Essentials

When you still don’t have room for things like curling irons and flat irons, there is a handy trick you can use to make your bathroom counter space less cluttered and still be able to keep these items in your bathroom. Head over to the hardware store for shelving, wall cabinets and organizational basket but also for a do-it-yourself project that you won’t believe.

By taking PVC pipes that are normally used in plumbing, you can create a project that will make your bathroom even more functional. Just buy a PVC pipe (around 5x5”x3” reducing “Y”) and spray paint. Just spray paint the inside and outside of the PVC pipe. Once it’s dry, store your hair dryer in the larger part of the pipe and a curling iron in the smaller part of the pipe. It’s a great space saver and you can’t paint it any color to match your bathroom décor.
