Decluttering: 4 steps to a minimalist bathroom
Whether we move or not, summer often calls for a breath of fresh air and renewal. What if we took advantage of the time to create more space in our home by cleaning out our belongings room by room? One place we love, essential to our self-care journey, is without a doubt the bathroom. But how do you transform this space into a more zen and minimalist place? It's simple, by de-cluttering!
Here are 4 tips to declutter your bathroom.
1- Empty everything and take inventory
The first step of any good cleaning is to create an inventory. In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it's not uncommon to forget what you already own - even to accumulate duplicates. Start by emptying each of your cabinets and drawers and then gather each category: Medication, hygiene essentials, make-up, styling tools… That's a lot, isn’t it...?
2- Donate, throw away, sell
With the overview of what you have in front of you, start by throwing away what is outdated or broken and irreparable. Then ask yourself: will you really use those samples that have been accumulating under the sink for years? Do you really need them? When was the last time you curled your hair with your vintage waving iron? Who knows, maybe those items collecting dust in your drawers could make someone else so happy. Think about offering them to friends, organizations or posting an ad on social media.
3- Encourage zero waste products
A minimalist bathroom also means making more eco-friendly choices. Where to begin? Choose quality over quantity. And ultimately, minimize packaging.

4- Get organized
Now that you only have the essentials in your bathroom, make sure you organize them in an efficient and thoughtful way. Use baskets or dividers to organize all categories of products in your cabinets and drawers. Also, keeping what you own in plain sight is the best way to avoid re-hoarding.
A minimalist hand room is so much more functional and energizing. Not only does it save space and energy, but it gives you more time for what really matters: taking care of yourself!
