One of the most exciting parts of moving to a new house, in my opinion, is decorating! I love finding new ways to make my room bright, colorful, stylish, and organized. I have made a list of just a few of my favorite bathroom and room decor and organization tips.
1. Shoe rack
I think a shoe rack is an essential to having an organized room. I hate having my shoes all over the ground in my closet, so I found a beautiful metal and bamboo shoe rack on sale for at Costco for $30. (This is about the right price range for a shoe rack, they range from about $20 to $50) I put it together and voila! It looks amazing and holds my shoes great. Totally worth it!
(The link to a similar rack I got is at the bottom. This one is a two pack, so it is more, but I kind of wish I saw this one at Costco because I want more of them in my closet!!) You could also use this as a nightstand, a little shelve to hold office supplies, all of that.
Bins are a super easy way to organize all of your stuff together. I have them on shelves, in bathrooms, and in my closet. I would recommend them to anyone, especially someone who has a ton of socks (aka me).
I bought mine about 2 years ago and they still look brand new! I couldn’t find the exact ones I have, but Martha Stewart has a ‘Fabric Drawer’ that looks like mine. (The link to Martha Stewart’s bins will be at the bottom)
3. Wall shelf
Why waste all that space?? I purchased a Pottery Barn wall shelve a couple years ago and it still looks brand new!
I use it as a radio/alarm clock holder, and it also holds all my books – love it! I couldn’t find the exact one, but I found one on PB Teen that looks kind of similar. It takes about five minutes to hang and looks great after – I still get compliments from it! (The link will be below)
Everyone needs a hand mirror, wether it be for makeup or for fixing your hair, it comes in handy. Target has them for about $5 dollars. (Link below) I hate having mine underneath the sink – A couple years ago I had a leak in my sink and I had to throw it away because it fell apart from the water :-(. So now I have it hanging up on my wall so it is 1. Easily accessible and 2. With it hanging, I don’t even have to hold it when I need two hands!
All you have to do is put a nail in the wall and boom! There you have your hand mirror hanger.
5. Blowdryer hook
Recently, while visiting family, I saw that my aunt had a blow dryer on a hook. Very simple indeed, and very useful to people who use their blowdryers a lot. I took a closer look and all it was was a Command® hook on the side of her cabinet and her blow dyer hanging from a small hook on the dryer.
Seriously thats it! I loved the idea and would use it at home, but I don’t usually blow dry my hair, so I store it under my sink until I need it next.
6. Tiny Decor Tip
This one is simple, yet elegant and I love it. All I have a ribbon ornament hanging on my room door and it looks amazing! I love the look and the ribbon fits perfect around the handle so it doesn’t fall off – Yay!
If you have an ornament that you like, that isn’t too bulky, feed ribbon through the opening at the top and ta-da! I think it looks great.
