It’s kind of odd that I’ve shown you guys all the “behind closed doors” parts of my master bathroom, like under the sinks, but never done a tour of the actual room. It’s probably because I’ve had an ongoing love-hate relationship with our bathroom. Our first two houses had teeny-tiny master bathrooms, neither with the bathtub I dreamed about. So, four years into living in this house, I’m still pinching myself that the space is ours.

I didn’t really mean to, but I ended up using FOUR items from the kitchen section at Pier 1 to organize the bathroom.  They complement the wood cabinets, which makes the cabinet stain seem more stylish and intentional. Even better, I can reuse all three in the kitchen after we do a more major bathroom update.

Even though I’m still ready to ditch the beige walls as soon as I can decide on a plan, I’m feeling a little more zen and patient with the process now. Better yet, the bathroom has been easier to keep tidy. We had solved so many of the clutter issues when I organized under my sink, but the hair tools always lingered. Now EVERYTHING really has a place in the bathroom. It’s glorious!

I absolutely get the putting away of the hot hair tools. I am the same way. If I can’t quickly and easily plop it down somewhere, it’ll sit on the counter every day until I get sick of knocking things over and dropping my favorite hot straightening brush! Again. Eek. Like you I also only use my tools every few days. It’s a total hassle to cram them under the sink where they share a tiny spot with the cleaning supplies. Kinda ick! My petite bathroom doesn’t have space for an awesome cart or even a basket on the floor, but you’ve inspired me to tackle this tangled mess. I might be able to hang them on the wall behind the door. –As long as they can’t be smashed. And even then I can put a door stopper up. And then to deal with the noise of the tools clanging around…do I go w padded walls?!?! Lol but hey, what about my padded cork board? I’ll put that on the back burner because I do believe there’s a better and much more stylish way! I’ve gotta take a peek on pier1’s website (I’d be at the store now if it was open! So much great stuff!) and see what other ideas I can come up w. And I’m all for using things in unexpected ways. Way back when I was in my first apt I bought a metal water bottle holder made for a bike to hang my blow dryer. Now you can buy basically the same thing, but specifically for a blow dryer and a bit more money. Being poor sure makes for some serious creativity! Thanks for the great ideas and renewing my motivation for bathroom decluttering. Looking forward to checking out the rest of your blog.

One relaxing morning I strolled into the bathroom to find toothpaste roads and a spit landscape in the sink bowl. Seriously, that’s gross! That pasty, light blue streak was keeping me from my morning routine. I don’t know about you, but I do not want to clean my bathroom in the morning. I have a hard enough time deciding to get ready in the first place! So I found my inner royalty and proclaimed my first royal decree: From this point hence, I hereby decree that communal tooth brushing must be the only kind of evening tooth brushing. I’ve found that the simplicity of creating this simultaneous act of communal brushing means I only have to use one Clorox wipe…genius!

At the same time, I’ve been REALLY wishing I had chosen different finishes for the room. That feeling was first amplified when we finished the attached closet, and then REALLY amplified again when we finished the bedroom. It left the bland, beige bathroom sandwiched between two spaces full of our personalities.

Looking around, I realized everything I changed fit into three main categories that could help you tackle your space. Pier 1 partnered with me for this project, so I added links to everything I used under each photo in case something would work great in your bathroom.

For the top shelf, I used a magazine basket, but rolled up pretty white towels to add a little softness and a spa feel. I also used a candle holder to corral three yummy room sprays. Because smelling great is an important part of any bathroom, right?

Hi Cindy, It’s definitely trickier in a small space, but even more important! If you’ve got any. cabinets, the backs of the doors can hold all kinds of things to help out. If you want to email me some pictures and measurements, I can make a whole blog post of ideas just for your bathroom! /* */

One of the riskier elements of this design was the cement tile, because of both the busy pattern and slightly trickier installation process. But, I knew that by keeping everything else simple that the floor would be a real statement piece. Plus, I figured a small guest bathroom would be the perfect place to experiment with such a bold pattern.

Clearly, the wide angle lens was needed to capture the majority of these shots. And while it does make the bathroom appear larger than it is, I do think it helps to capture the feeling this space evokes – clean, crisp, warm and fun.

Our bathroom vanity top is one of the biggest problem areas we have when it comes to clutter and cleanliness. Usually because once the clutter starts, it’s harder to clean and the snowball effect happens FAST.  When Lana pitched the idea of sharing her sink area strategy as her first post, I had tunnel vision and couldn’t even tell you what her other ideas where. I knew I NEEDED this one for us, which usually means there is a good chance you have the same struggle.  I can tell you I quickly implemented her first tip, and in the week I’ve had her draft, it’s already made a huge difference!

Is your bathroom sink as clean as you’d like? Would you eat soup out of it? Keeping your sink spotless can be tricky. I mean, it’s painstakingly visible and there’s no lid, so you can’t cover it.
