Bath Time Safety

How cool this would have been to know this when my kids were little. I kept them in a plastic tub as long as I could. I feared getting them in the bathtub. A basket like this keeps the head away from getting banged on the tub side. The best part would be after you have taken the little one out and gotten them in their pj’s and you come in to clean up a quick spray of the shower head would clean the tub, the basket and toys. I would think about putting a few hole around the edge so water can drain easily from the toys as well as the basket.

Shallow Wood Crates For Bathroom Storage

1These are wooden crates trays that you could get at any craft store. I imagine you could also use the old pallets that seem to be everywhere with a little figuring out of dimensions. Then they are painted a coordinated color  and hung in the bathroom. These are nice to store some of the bottles that are inevitably on your counter or the extras some of us buy when we buy for a certain time or from Costco/Sams Club type places. Simple and cheap (or free).

Easy Budget Bathroom Storage By Rida Maqbool

Not everyone can afford homes that come with a lot of storage space. Typically, bathrooms are very small and you have to be really creative to find ways to store your things. The best thing about functional storage ideas is the fact that they don’t require you to spend a lot. So if you are looking for some fun and easy ways to help you make the most of your small bathroom, I advise you to read on.

1. Floating storage
Floating storage comes in handy when you have a small space and you want to make the most of it. For this you need to mount shelves to the wall of the bathroom, and put as much as stuff as you can on it without making it look cluttered. Not only is this tip, space saving but it is also very affordable. You can also attach wooden crates or buckets to the wall. Be sure to attach generous amount of nails so that the crate doesn’t fall off. Using walls for storage purposes is borderline genius.

2. Décor turned storage
Use decoration pieces that you have in your bathroom to store things. For example if you have a vintage box in your bathroom, you can use it to store your rings, earrings or bracelets. You can also use decorative trays to organize the essentials you need for shower, like shampoo, conditioner or body wash.

3. Borrow it from the kitchen
There are a lot of things in the kitchen that can be used in your bathroom to save space. A simple example of this is spice racks. Spice racks are perfect to store shampoos, conditioners, hairdryers and straighteners. Like I said earlier, using walls for storage purposes is simply a really good idea for saving space and using your small bathroom space wisely.

4. Hair dryer and straightener holder
An inexpensive hair dryer and straightener holder can be easily bought from your local store. With the help of these holders you are able to hang your hair dryer, flat iron and curling rod on the inside of your cabinet door. As these hair styling tools are typically the largest items in a bathroom, this tip will really come in handy.

5. Drawers inside your cabinet
If you have a hard time organizing your things then having drawers inside your cabinet is a great way to make complete use of your cabinets and find everything easily. You can easily buy these drawers from any store as they’ve gotten really popular among people.

6. Three tier DIY bathroom organizer
Buy reflective trays and stands from your nearest dollar store and turn them into a three tier bathroom supplies organizer. From hair pins to rings, you can pretty much place anything on this organizer. This way you’ll have easy access to things that you need the most when you’re in the bathroom.

Baby In Bathtub Trick

998432_10201914864462207_381484025_nI found this idea and tried it when the granddaughter was here for a visit. Insert a laundry basket into the tub and fill it up with water to wash the baby. Put their toys into the basket and put the child into the basket. This is great as a transitional aid to let baby feel safe. It also makes it easier to drain tub and keep toys easily accessible. Use shower spray to rinse out basket and dry.

Old Bathtub Made Into Sofa

What a great way to recycle a claw foot bathtub. Would make a great conversational piece. I don’t know how the cut was made except if they used a blow torch to do the cut. A nice paint job and then a good coating of polyurethane with a cushion for comfort would finish it off nicely. The faucet cutouts left open look like a face. There is no reason to cover up the up-cycle – it is what it is. Wouldn’t this be great in a foyer or even a child’s room. Its not destructible practically!
