How to create a peaceful bathroom


What does elevating your bathroom look like?

There are so many ways to make your bathroom feel more like a spa. More spacious, relaxing and peaceful.

Over the years I have organized so many bathrooms. It is one space that can easily get cluttered and chaotic. But with a few simple changes you can make your bathroom feel so much better. It starts with de cluttering and simplifying your products. Next comes the fun part…accessorizing and styling your bathroom. We want your bathroom to be easy to maintain but it can be beautiful as well.

Tips for creating a spa like feel:

-Upgrade your towels to a matching set. Get rid of any old scratchy towels that are falling apart. You deserve better! Add some hand towels with a waffle weave texture to create that spa like feel.

-Add real or battery powered candles.

-Bring the outdoors in by adding a real or fake plant or flowers.

-Choose a favorite fragrance of some sort in the form of a reed diffuser, fancy soaps or a room spray. Something that smells fresh and clean.

-Elevate your countertops by using glass or ceramic canisters for things like q-tips, dental picks and cotton balls.

-Add some color and texture by using a decorative tray, decorative bowls or a basket on the top of your counter for items you need out for daily use. I love repurposing items you already own in new and creative ways.

-Designate a drawer or basket for self care and pampering for things like masks, scrubs and bath salts.

-And the not so fun but necessary maintenance to keep your bathroom feeling good:

-Toss any expired products. Old facial products and old makeup can cause breakouts.

-Take everything out and wipe down your drawers and products.

-Simplify your beauty routine. Let go of those products that just didn’t work for you and now you feel guilty about tossing them. If they are new and in a pump or spray form you can always donate them to a women’s shelter.

-Use drawer liner or drawer organizers so it’s easier to keep things clean.

-And I’m going to emphasize this one! It makes me crazy..clean your hairbrushes. Pull out that loose hair regularly and wash your brush. Just grab your brush when you are jumping in the shower and add a little shampoo and rinse it off. Easy solution. (I have seen brushes with 5 years worth of hair on them. We can do better!)

I hope this gave you some inspiration… If you need some help tackling your bathroom I’m happy to help!
