Pare down and declutter

First things first – get rid of all the unnecessary items and remove anything that has no business in your bathroom counter. Whether you have old makeup, empty bottles of products, and random objects—you need to identify which ones you need to throw or return to its original designation.

Now, trim the products down to the essentials. Keep the things you use everyday—these items depend on your lifestyle and routine.

Use pretty containers

Not all of your essentials and toiletries come in pretty packaging that you would love to display. Consider transferring lotion or liquid soap into containers that fit your aesthetic. It’s okay to mix different types of vessels but remember to place the ones that look similar together.

Corral in trays

Holding your items inside trays is the quickest organizing hack there is. A tray takes a handful of items and turns them into a single element. This tricks the eye into thinking that even unlike objects can look uncluttered together. Choose an attractive tray to add more flair.

Layer your mirrors

Create depth and interest with layers of mirrors. For your wall-mounted mirror, select a frame that you won’t get tired of easily. Keep in mind that you and your guests will be looking at this mirror every time you visit the loo. Add a cosmetic mirror in a similar or contrasting frame as your wall-mounted one.

Freshen up with plants or flowers

Even the smallest spaces at home need a touch of plant life. The effect of flowers and plants in a room is often overlooked but if you want to instantly liven up your space, a potted plant or a bunch of fresh flowers will give your room a charming, lived-in feel.
