Get Organized: 4 Key Steps to Organize Your Bathroom Cabinet Like a Professional Organizer
Is the cabinet under your bathroom sink one big open space of disorder? Adding in a few strategic organization products can make a world of difference!
I recently added a few necessary organization products under the sink in our bathroom to keep it organized and easy to find everything.
I had one pull-out drawer from my old apartment repurposed into this cabinet, and it was not really doing anything to help keep it organized, so it was time for a revamp!
4 Easy Steps to Organize Like a Pro:
Measure the space before you shop for a product
Inventory the items you want to store
Overbuy on product (make sure you are able to return)
Give yourself the time to clean out the space and to plug and play with the product
#1: Measure the space before you shop for product
I measured out the door openings, depth of the cabinet, height, and the pipe obstructions in the back. I knew I wanted to add pull-out drawers, so I needed to make sure they would fit into the opening of the cabinet. I also needed to take into account where the pipes are at the back of the cabinet to make sure organization products don't hit them.
#2: Inventory the items you want to store
Get a general idea of the height of products so you know what would fit into the drawers and how high you could place items.
#3: Overbuy the product and make sure you are able to return it
This is a big success factor for professional organizers. They always overbuy what they think they need for the project and get options, so once you are in the space and organizing, you can stay focused and not have to stop to buy additional products.
Example: In the photo below, I knew I wanted a lazy Susan in the cabinet, but I was not sure how I was going to use it, so I bought a double-decker one and a single. I ended up using the single.
#4: Give yourself the time to clean out the space and to plug and play with the products
You want to have the time to be able to remove everything from the space, wipe it down, purge expired or no longer needed items, and then decide on the best new organization products to use. Don't try to fit the project in on a busy weekend. Block the time on your calendar so you won't be stressed.
I posted about this on Instagram, and you can click here to view the post. There is a video and walk-through of the space on the third picture.
I chose not to label because the spaces were self-explanatory to us. If they don't stay organized after a couple of months, I will go back and add labels to the drawers.
Another reason I chose not to label them is that these clear storage pull-outs could get repurposed into the closet, pantry, or office down the line.
All products are from Target, and you can check them out here:
