If your bathroom is anything like ours, you probably have an awful lot of hair products, styling tools, and other sundries cluttering up your countertop, shelving, and just generally making your bathroom feel smaller and dirty.
The first step to decluttering your bathroom is always to haul everything out into the light and then do a thorough purge. Hanging on to old, tattered poufs? Toss them. Old perfumes that have lost their luster? Ditch them.
Once you’ve finished purging, it’s time to DIY or purchase beautifying storage elements that maximize the function of your bathroom and fit with your decor. We’ve scoured the internet for some of the best and most attractive ways to add storage space to your bathroom and minimize clutter in the future.
So go ahead, find your favorite ideas and then start the purge! You’ll feel better when it’s complete, and your bathroom will look fantastic!
