5 Tips for Bathroom Sharing

iStock_000021905663_Small

With back-to-school season rapidly approaching, bathroom sharing is on the horizon – making the morning rush before work or school quite an ordeal. Avoid a war zone in your ensuite this fall, check out the below ways to make bathroom coexistence easier:

1. Make cabinets do more. Stay organized by keeping everything behind closed doors. Look into different organizing tools for drawers and readjust your cabinet shelves to make sure everything fits properly and has its own designated space. Speaking of designated space…

2. Be savvy when sorting. Give each person in your household a space of their own in the bathroom – a cabinet, a drawer, a pull out basket, etc. This way you try to avoid too many people jostling each other when getting ready.

3. Get rid of the unnecessary. The bathroom is prime real estate, take out the extraneous items. Bulky hampers may be better off placed in a bedroom closet to save space, toilet paper and additional towels can be stored elsewhere as well.

4. Create a schedule. Getting your family or roommates into a bathroom sharing schedule can certainly help making the morning rush a better experience for everyone. Have everyone use the bathroom at certain times and ensure they leave the space as they found it.

5. Consider two. If your bathroom is big enough and you are looking to remodel – consider upgrading to double sinks. Not only will you have two sinks to utilize when brushing teeth, shaving, or washing hands, but you also will have additional counter room and storage.

Tips for Keeping Your Bathroom Clean

The bathroom – one of your home’s most important rooms to keep clean, but equally one of the most difficult. Not to worry, Good Housekeeping has helped us round up some ways for you to get more mileage out of your cleaning efforts:

Stop moisture: While showering, crack the door or window and flip the exhaust fan on to help moisture dissipate. After the shower, stretch out the curtain to ensure it dries properly. If you have a shower door instead, consider hanging a squeegee in the shower and take a few minutes when finished to wipe down the walls, tub, and shower doors to delay the spread of mildew.

Use liquid soap: Eliminating a grimy soap dish will help both your counter-top and sink stay cleaner.

Install towel bars: Towels dry quicker when hung across a bar to dry. If you don’t have wall space, look into an over the door towel bar or some hooks to keep things tidy.

Keep disinfecting wipes handy: Tired of toothpaste splatters? Keeping some disinfecting cleaning wipes under the sink can help clean up messes before they have a chance to dry and become tougher to remove.

Keep some used dryer sheets nearby: Use these to quickly and easily pick up any hair or dust bunnies from the floor the moment you see them!

Tips for Renovating your Bathroom

Are you looking for a change? Thinking about selling your home? Research suggests that kitchens and bathrooms are two of the best rooms to invest in if you’re looking to make improvements or make more money when you sell. Check out these tips on how to update your bathroom without breaking the bank:
  1. Paint your bathroom: Re-painting your bathroom is a quick and inexpensive fix if you’re looking for a change. Painting can brighten the room or change the mood to make other fixtures pop!
  2. Update accessories: If you haven’t made any changes recently, updating your accessories could do the trick. Consider updating to a new and improved bathroom mirror as a way to complement other fixtures while still including your personality into the design. Choose between a framed mirror to fit over your bathroom vanity or even build your own!
  3. Update your bathroom fixtures: Although bathroom hardware can be replaced at a low cost, they have the potential to really make your bathroom stand out. While they may be simple, decisions like choosing between a free-standing or mounted towel rack could make all the difference in how you and guests perceive the room.
  4. Update your vanity: Updating your vanity may be the way to go if you’re looking to completely transform your whole bathroom. If your shower or bathtub isn’t in need of fixing, updating your cabinetry or countertops may be the exact update you’re looking for.
  5. Replace your light fixtures: Small bathrooms usually don’t get that much natural light, which makes your light fixtures extremely important. No matter what mood you’re going for, your bathroom should always give off as much light as possible to aid you in your daily tasks.
  6. Buy new bathroom linens: If you’re using the same bathmat and shower curtain from your last update, it’s time to get new ones! Towels and bathroom linens should be changed often, especially if your home is humid and prone to mold and mildew. Changing your linens is also an easy way to spice up the room with different colors and patterns.
  7. Add vintage or re-purposed storage: Most bathrooms are lacking storage, but if space allows, add a vintage shelf or a wire basket to store everyday items like towels and soaps.
Deciding on how to update your bathroom can be a difficult task, especially if you’re torn between what designs you’re looking for. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out our bathroom remodeling division, Re-Bath, and let us guide you on how you can have your dream home!
