Minimalist Bathroom Organization
The only room in our newly remodeled mid-century house that we had to completely start fresh was the bathroom. Being able to customize every detail from the white grid tile to the handcrafted vanity, allowed us to make it a true reflection of our style - clean, warm, and balanced with a touch of desert vibes.
It took me a while to feel settled in and grasp my vision for a room that I never gave much thought to styling, when I lived with roomies or at home. I started with finding ways to keep the loose pieces and products organized then topped it off with tasteful touches to bring in personality.
1. Only keep your favorite products on the vanity + store the rest.
I love the look of carefully curated products with minimal branding on our vanity. Some of our favorite brands with aesthetic labels are Aesop, The Ordinary, Marie Jeanne and Brooklyn Botany. This is a good time to sort through what products you actually use and which ones are just taking up space. No need to throw out the rest of your essentials, just put them under the counter and out of sight!
2. Tidy up your drawers and cabinets with organizing bins.
Don’t rely on your best intentions to have perfectly organized drawers - mini bottles, lipsticks, and serums tumble over too easily and before you know it, the whole thing is a mess. Target has the niftiest clear organizers that keep your makeup, skincare, and hair accessories in line. Pick out a few different shapes and compartment sizes so you can find the perfect fit for each product in your bathroom.
3. Roll your towels and place in baskets for functional decor.
My greatest home decor tip is to marry function and style. For this bathroom hack, I grabbed a few woven baskets - all the same color palette, but varied in size - to hold bath, hand, and washcloth towels. Simply fold the towels in four then roll lengthwise and fill the baskets! It’s great to have towels easily accessible for guests so no one has to awkwardly rummage through your cabinets while they’re soaking wet.
4. Transfer shampoo + body wash into glass bottles.
If you don’t want to spend $60 on high end shampoo for the aesthetic it gives your shower (I’m with you on that), transfer generic shampoo and body wash into pretty amber glass pump bottles. And because I obnoxiously label everything, I placed two little labels on the front of the bottles that read ‘body’ and ‘hair’.
5. Add finishing touches such as plants, wall art, and candle.
Okay, not everything has to be functional… Bring life into the space with dried grasses, desert cacti, tropical palms, or mini succulents. Frame minimalist line art (or whatever you love!) and place on a shelf or attach directly to the wall. Fill every corner with a candle so your bathroom stays smelling like a spa!
I have been craving my evening unwind time so much more now that the environment feels inviting and warm. Walking into a room that is prepared for peace makes any leftover stress from the day melt away!
