Getting Organized – Bathroom Organization

Bathroom Organization - Pezzo Bello Interiors

Whether it’s your guest bath, master bath, kids bath or pool bath; bathroom organization can be both useful and beautiful. Cabinet storage and hidden items keep those eye-sores out of view but easy to access. While the items that make the room feel cozy and warm, like towels and decorative soaps can make your bathroom more beautiful when done strategically.

Here are some tips to help with your bathroom organization.

Lets start with cabinet storage.

This is a great place to store your extra bottles of shampoo and body wash, hair supplies, curling iron, blow dryer and anything else that isn’t pretty and decorative.

This doesn’t need to cost a pretty penny to organize. With some boxes or bins you can have a great area that is easily accessed and makes the most of the space.

Before you get started, go through everything and throw anything out that is expired, not something you actually use, or is broken or leaking. Once you’ve gotten only the necessary items, take a good look at what you have. Take into consideration bottle sizes, shapes of items and how you can group the similar items together for ease.

Now that you know what you have to work with, here are some great items to help make your cabinet storage work for you.

Sometimes all you need is a few plastic storage boxes with lids. These are easily stacked and while they make it a bit harder to access, they keep clutter at bay. These would be great for things you need only "every-once-in-a-while" not your everyday items.

Keeping Drawers Organized

One of the hardest places to keep organized are drawers. Everything gets mixed and tossed making it look like a constant mess. Keep your items in their places with these drawer organizer ideas.

Visible Areas

The areas on your counters and walls can be a great place to store your more decorative items. Not everything must be hidden. Extra towels, provided they match the decor and are in good shape, can look great out in the open. Use your wall space and counter areas to your advantage.

Remodeled Farm House

Well, we are almost complete with our latest Farm House update and wanted to share some of the pictures of our progress! We were on an extremely tight budget to remodel 2 bathrooms and change wall colors in the living room, kitchen, hall, son’s bedroom and both bathrooms.  It was a challenge we were anxious to tackle!  We just have the window treatments left to finish and they will be added in the next few months, when our client is ready.  

Here are a few before and after pictures.

In the before picture, you will notice that there was a corner shower unit and the toilet next to it.  We changed the corner unit to an enclosed  4′ shower with porcelain tile on the walls and floors.  We moved the toilet behind the door where the standard washer and dryer were.  The homeowners bought a stack able washer and dryer and the storage cabinet so that we could put it where the toilet was. We also added an ADA Toilet and had a custom vanity made with new counter-tops and sink.  We took the wallpaper and bead board down, then painted the walls with SW Tatami Tan.  It turned out beautifully.

In the before pictures you will notice the short bath/shower unit where our client had major water splash problems that eventually caused the sheetrock to mold and peel. We tore out the entire area and replaced it with a jetted tub while adding porcelain tile up to the ceiling so as to not have those same water problems. We tiled the floor with a complimentary porcelian tile, added a new counter top with sink to match the new jetted tub.  We also added a new ADA toilet, new plumbing fixtures and painted the walls in SW Spiced Cider.

 In the before pictures you will notice bead board and wall paper throughout the dinette area.  We took it down, changed the wall colors in the main area and hall to SW Tower Tan.  We added two accent walls, one on the staircase in SW Brandywine and one on the living room/dinette wall in SW Sierra Redwood. We also painted the patio doors in SW Brandywine and the front door(not shown) in Sierra Red. (The green vertical blinds will be changed when we do the window treatments.)
A few more After Pictures!

So all in all, it has been a fun project with many challenges but it really turned out warm and inviting!  Our client is thrilled with the turnout and that’s what makes it all worthwhile!
If you would like a change for the new year, give us a call!  We will be happy to help make your home EXTRAORDINARY!
A special thanks to AG Cabinets and C & M Painting for the great job they did!
