Tips to keep your bathroom neat and peaceful

From the morning rush to relaxing in the evenings, your bathroom stays busy every day. Turn it into a hub of rest and comfort while keeping it functional.

Keep your bathroom neat, clean and well-ventilated

A cleaning cupboard can store those unattractive tools within easy reach but hidden from sight. There’s also enough movement of air to keep the dampness at bay. Add a rod and shower curtain to go with the cupboard

Find a home for your mops and brushes

Keep your cleaning equipment organised by finding a proper home for them. Take them out when needed and put them away when done. Just draw the curtains when they are not in use to hide them from view.

A practical solution for your towels

Hanging your towels on the hooks and racks allows them to air dry. It helps them stay fresh longer and reduces the need for constant washing.

Open storage for a harmonious bathroom

Open shelves keep your essentials easy to reach and to add a stylish touch to your bathroom by putting your decor on display. Keeping plants on the shelves brings a calmness to the room - they’ll love the damp environment too.

Use organisers and boxes to turn the chaos into order

Keep your cabinets free of clutter and neatly arrange your things in kits, baskets and boxes. Separate them according to their use, so make-up products, hygiene products, shampoos and soaps, all go in different containers - easy to find and just as easy to put back.

A little extra space outside the bathroom

Bathrooms are perfect to unwind after a long day, but they often get too busy. It’s great to have a corner just for yourself, always open and available for a little me-time, outside the bathroom. You can add a mirror and some cosy wall lighting - they make your nook appear light and spacious.
