Utilize the space above the water closet

Since we use the bathroom each morning, it pays to start the day right. Consider hanging prints and inspiring photos that can perk up your day. How about a favorite quote or movie line?

RL Tip: If you have a small bathroom and a limited counter space, you may place a small tray on top of the closet where you can keep your eseentials. Add a refreshing touch by placing a small potted plant.

Add a huge cabinet

If the space allows, you may opt to add a huge wooden cabinet where you can keep towels, a laundry basket, some essentials, and other decor pieces. This can serve as your main bathroom supplies station. 

RL Tip: You don't have to buy a new cabinet! Repurpose an old piece by painting it. You may even keep it as is for a rustic, distressed look.

Create a small supplies station

If your bathroom cannot accommodate a huge cabinet, you can still keep your essentials and supplies organized by having a small shelf or cabinet. It all boils down to how you segregate your items and how you maximize the piece.

RL Tip: Be inspired by the diagram! Put decor pieces and daily essentials on the topmost shelf. To add a relaxing touch, you may add some candles and plants. For the second tier, keep supplies like soap, towels, and shampoo together. Corral toilet paper and other items on the bottom tier. If the space allows, you may even keep a couple of reading materials there.
