Bathroom organization ideas for your organized home must include taming the towel clutter. Particularly when kids are involved.
Tip No One: Move the bathroom towel bars to each bedroom and promote personal organization skills for towel management in every family member. Having towels in their rooms helps the bathroom appear orderly. Giving each family member the responsibility for their own towel management then they must live with the consequences of their towel management decisions.
YES it can be done!
Move the bathroom towel bars out of the bathroom and into the bedroom! Each family member has their own designated towel rack in the bathroom and it is their job to keep the towels in place and in check. This is a great solution also when people ask how to store towels without a linen closet.
Do not rescue someone from a self imposed clean towel shortage. They will have to figure that one out on their own.
If the only towels they have are the moldy wet ones on the floor of their room then those will be the ones they have to use. I can absolutely guarantee you that they will not catch a deadly disease and they might just learn that hanging up the towels in their designated place is the best way to assure a dry towel when you really need one!
Tip No Two:Designate each family member to a specific towel color. These are their own personal towels to be kept in their own room and taken to the bathroom for a bath or a shower. With specific colors assigned to each family member, towels left lying around always shout out the name of their irresponsible owner!
Tip No Three: If you want family members to return the towels to their assigned space provide an user friendly option at a height that is perfect for them. Kids might not be able to reach the bathroom towel bars that are mounted at an adult height so always ensure they can reach and use the towel rack assigned to them.
Tip No Four: Use the space behind the bathroom door – that is vertical space too. You can choose an over the door towel rack that mounts directly on the door or even on the hinges. Maximize the towel hanging space inside your bathroom.
Tip No Five: If you have surplus towels left over then simply roll up your towels and keep them in storage baskets either on the counter or on the floor, wherever you have room.
Tip No Six: Put a free standing bathroom towel rack in each bedroom to encourage independence and self reliance for management of personal towels.
Tip No Seven: Bathroom towel bars are for hanging towels and not for grabbing. If you are taking care of the elderly replace the towel bar with a proper grab bar so they have something sturdy to hang onto – towels can go there too!
