Decluttering and organising the Bathroom and the Hallway

It’s the last day of January so lets finish the decluttering before we start those DIY projects. The final blog in the decluttering series: The Bathroom
 and the Hallway

The Bathroom

1) Add extra bathroom storage  bathroom-declutter-your-bathroom-homes-medium_new

One of the most inch-efficient ways of adding storage to the bathroom is with built-in units. Freestanding storage units can add style and interest to your bathroom whilst subtracting the clutter.



2) Store bath toys in suction mounted bags

A quick and easy way to add storage in areas where permanent fittings are difficult to install, such as tiled walls, is to secure baskets with suction pads. This is an ideal way to stoare small items such as kids bathroom toys.

Shelves can have more than just a functional role, filled with matching jars, baskets, well displayed toiletries, or fluffy spare towels, they look fab.

4) Add an extra towel rail

These are indispensible for tidying, drying, and warming towels. If you already have a single wall-mounted towel rail, consider placing another above or below.

5) Hang storage dividers

For smaller items like your talc, hairbrush, or foot-scrubber, how about hanging a shoe rack on the back of the door?

6) Use the space under your bath

You can buy panels for your bath, allowing you to make the most of the space underneath and store cleaning products and other items in this previously unused space.

7) Steal storage solutions from other rooms l_74fbcec0-c897-11e1-9c8b-71f879100005

The right wardrobe, plant stand, or even a tea trolley from another part of the house could work. 

8) Add a wire basket

A wire kitchen vegetable rack can work brilliantly for storing toiletries and other nick-nacks, or two or three tiered wire hanging baskets keep things off the floor and out of reach of little hands.

And finally: Decluttering and organising a hallway

1) Fix a key cupboard – 
Add to the wall in the hallway and slip your keys on a hook as soon as you come in.

2) Get a radiator cover – This immediately smartens up a hall and makes a slim shelf for holding keys and letters.

4) Choose a coat racks with overhead shelves – These are invaluable for ensuring hats don’t get battered in the morning melée.

5) Get rid of all clutter – Only store the absolute essentials in your hallway, anything other than the bare minimum will get in the way of the morning scramble for bags, shoes and coats.

6) Add a shoe rack  – Piles of shoes, boots and wellies mounting up? Put them in order and keep them in pairs with a tidy shoe rack.images-8

7) Add a narrow console table  – One with a curved front edge will avoid those bruised hips!

8) Update the cupboard under the stairs  – If your just chucking things on the floor, then consider adding extra hooks or shelves to store extra items above.

9) Add a coat stand or coat hooks –  Make the most of a free corner and add character with a freestanding coat stand.

10) Mount your phone on the wall
