Baskets are an easy, inexpensive way to add some eye appeal to any room of your home including the bathroom! More expensive is custom made furniture, but on another hand, it offers much neater space.
I recently redecorated my bathroom and re-organized and cleaned up some of the clutter by putting things in baskets. This simple idea changed the whole look of my bathroom.
I purchased my baskets very inexpensively at a local discount store and a thrift store, looking for ones of different sizes and shapes. The ones from the thrift store cost about a pound, and the others, including a large one, were less than £10. The variety of sizes allows you more flexibility when placing them around the bathroom.
After I had rearranged my bedroom, I ended up with a pretty floral iron shelf rack that I didn’t have room for anymore. It fit perfectly in the bathroom in between the towel rack and the shower. Instead of just piling stuff on top if it, I arranged some of my baskets on it with things we reach for often.
The top shelf contains a medium-sized basket with rolled-up washcloths standing up in it. A small basket next to it contains my foot scrub and lotion and cuticle cream.
The second shelf has folded towels stacked on one side and a basket next to it with several kinds of lotions.
The bottom shelf has a large basket with several rolls of toilet paper (in easy reach).
If you have room, a large basket on the floor is a great place to store all of your bathroom reading material.
I also placed a small basket with my razor and shaving cream on the edge of the bathtub.
I have also seen shelves that are lined with small baskets for cosmetics, cotton balls, cotton swabs, etc.
You can even place potted plants in baskets.
I wanted to liven up my baskets just a little more, so I looked for some sort of linens to line them. At a flea market, I found a set of five antique linen napkins with crocheted edging for £5. I now have five matching basket liners!
These baskets really clean up the clutter and can give your bathroom a neater, more organised look. It’s also easier to keep clean when everything has its place.
Next step was to get custom built wardrobe. As I am living in London where is not an issue to find right provider at an affordable price. I had a home consultation with four companies and got a free estimate. I have chosen a semi-expensive fitted cabinet from the floor up to the ceiling in gorgeous white colour with mirror doors.
