Your bathroom is a special place. It’s not just where you maintain your most personal needs, it’s also a sanctuary from things in life that are constantly demanding your time and attention. The biggest challenge in most bathrooms is the limited storage space. Bathrooms have towels, cosmetic products, extra toilet paper, toilet caddies and cleaning supplies that need to be stored so you have them when in need. Thankfully, the following four things to DIY in your bathroom will make it a more functional and comfortable space for your home. 1. Use the space behind cabinet doors One easy way to expand the storage in your bathroom is to utilize the space behind your cabinet doors. A quick measurement of your doors will give you exactly what you need to build and install a simple shelving system. Determine what you want to store in it first before installation. This will make sure that you get the most out of this valuable storage space. Shelving behind your cabinet doors can be used to store just about anything, including toilet paper, medical supplies,or cleaning products. 2. Create your own containers Old jars and cups make great containers for small items, but why not get creative with some simple materials to liven up the decor in your bathroom? Old coffee cans are of the best DIY container items you can use. They can be painted to offer a more customized look.You can also use other materials such as rope or craft paper to cover the can. Using different sizes lets you build matching “sets” that can be used in different areas of your bathroom. These are great for any bathroom tools or small appliances you need to protect from damage. Organizing your bathroom items makes it easy to find them and keep track of what you need. Medicine cabinets can become overloaded with things you no longer use or are out of date. 3. Use a Lazy Susan as a medicine cabinet Checking the expiration dates of medicine is an easy way to determine what you should throw out. Once you’ve done that, you can begin to use one of the easiest DIY tips for your bathroom. The Lazy Susan is traditionally used in kitchen cupboards as a way to organize spices or any other small items. But most people don’t think to use them in their bathrooms. It makes a great organization unit for your medicine or beauty products. It allows you to rotate items on a tray and gives you quick access to what you need without having to dig through (and disorganizing) your other things. 4. Hang items with a tension rod A simple tool like the tension rod can be installed in minutes. You can find them at your local hardware store.
