We usually begin our day and end our day-in the bathroom. To help get you in and out with more ease and efficiency; let me offer you some tips for your bathroom. Ever finish your shower or bath and find yourself having to run dripping wet to get a towel? Instead of storing all the towels in the hall closet, install a shelf or two in the bathroom.
BE ROBE READY-A simple hook on the back of the bathroom door can keep you robe ready and insure you won't need to make any more mad dashes to another room for cover.
SHAMPOO SHELVING-There are portable shelves that loop over the shower head to hold supplies and make it easy to reach without even opening your eyes.
RUBBER DUCKY-Tub trays can hold duckies, scrubbies, soap, or whatever else you want to keep handy in the bathtub.
BATHROOM JUNK DRAWER-Just as most kitchens need a junk drawer, so does the bathroom. Put divider trays into your bathroom drawers to divide up things like bobby pins, manicure equipment, hair accessories, and so on.
ROUND TABLE-When cabinets are deep use lazy susan systems to lessen frustration of the otherwise domino effect when reaching for things.
MAKEUP CENTER-Group similar items in small baskets or plastic containers to save time digging for them and you'll save space overall.
DOWN UNDER-Check under the sink to see if there's space for an additional shelf.
WET HEAD-Plastic hair dryer holder that stick via a suction cup to the bathroom wall or installed inside a cabinet will keep the hair dryer handy and ready for use.
BAG IT-Draw string bags will hold hair dryers, saving supplies, or whatever when hung on hooks or even small nails inside the sink cabinet door.
With a little thought and ingenuity your bathroom can become better for you and your family.
