The bathroom may not be your favorite room in your house but it is one of the most important when you’re thinking about selling your home. You can also make your day to day life a lot easier with a well organised bathroom. So boost your DIY skills and give your bathroom an organisation or functionality update this weekend. Here are 10 projects to do so which are easy to do and won’t cost you much money.
Add An LED Strip Light Under Your Cabinet
Instead of a night light, add an LED strip light to the underside of your bathroom cabinets, they’ll prevent stubbed toes and give you just enough light to see where you’re going without waking you up completely.
Mount Mason Jars Above The Sink
If you’ve got accessories and products you want to keep out of the way but still in reach, mason jars are the solution. Mount them onto a piece of wood using some hose clamps for a stylish storage solution. They are also easy to remove for cleaning and you can use the coloured jars to match your colour scheme.
Organise Your Bathroom Cabinet With A Slide Out Drawer
It’s much easier to reach the products at the back of your cabinet if you’ve got a slide out drawer. You can customise this project to your needs with multiple drawers and different compartments.
Make A Cork Bath Mat
If you’ve got a jar or box of wine corks lying around, turn them into a functional bath mat, the corks are naturally soft and mould resistant.
Keep Your Cords & Accessories Together With PVC Pipes
Cords are one of the most annoying things about storing your gadgets, no matter how well you pack them up, they always seem to get tangled. Keep your cords together by mounting a few PVC pipes on the cabinet door. Now you’ve got place for each accessory and its cord is kept far away from the others.
Build A Storage Unit Behind Your Mirror
If you’ve got a full length mirror in your bathroom or bedroom, use the space behind it by building a shallow storage cabinet with the mirror as the door. You may even be able to recess the cabinet into the wall for further space savings.
Create A Stackable Plate Organiser To Keep Your Counter De-cluttered
While this is not a new idea, its not commonly done in the bathroom, its usually used for serving food. Buy why not save on counter space by using a plate stacker in the bathroom, what’s even better is that you can just put the plates in the dishwasher when they become dirty.
Make A Smart Mirror
This one is for the more techy people, make yourself an Android powered smart mirror to display things like the weather, your calendar and news notifications. Its a mini control centre to glance at while you’re brushing your teeth in the morning.
Add A Second Shower Rod For Additional Storage
This is one of the easier and more useful projects, add another shower tension rod with some hooks and baskets and you’ve instantly got a lot more storage in the shower. You can also use it as a clothes line for drying towels and laundry.
Update Your Bathroom Fixtures
