This is a sponsored post written by me for BeraTek Industries. All opinions are mine alone.

With the holidays rapidly approaching, are you ready to welcome guests into your home? For me, before I feel ready to invite family & friends over, I like to make sure the kitchen & bathrooms are in top shape. To get them clean, tidy and organized, I have a few tricks up my sleeve! Today I’ll be sharing some of my favorite bathroom-organizing hacks with you, from using Power Perch (to keep counter tops clear of clutter) to setting up a beautiful stack of fresh white towels. Keep reading for all the details.

Easy Tips for a Clean & Tidy Bathroom

1. Use labeled bins under the sink!
We all have plenty of stuff under the bathroom sink. Keep that clutter under control with organized bins. I like to divide my stuff by category: face, hair, skin, etc. Label the bins and make sure you always put your products back in the right spot. I find that when everything has a dedicated spot, it’s much easier to maintain an organized bathroom.

2. Keep counter tops clear!
One of my favorite tricks for a clean, tidy bathroom is to keep the bathroom counters clear of clutter. Of course, a soap pump is necessary. Maybe one or two decorative elements (vase, tray, etc.) can be a nice addition. However, avoid the temptation to keep your toothbrushes, shavers, deodorant, etc. on the counter. Clean counters help to create the sense of a spacious, tidy bathroom.

I’m not saying that we don’t have to charge our electric toothbrushes or that we don’t use electric shavers. I just keep them off the counter. Where do they go? On the Power Perch! This practical little product lets you create an extra shelf in seconds by simply using your existing outlet cover. Please note that it fits most single vertical outlets and requires no extra hardware.

Power Perch is ideal for charging devices, while keeping wires & devices off the table or counter top. I love that it offers a safe, designated charging spot (no tipping to the floor) and a quick, damage-free installation (no nails into my wall)!

To begin, turn off power at the circuit breaker. Once you’ve ensured that this outlet is not live, use a screw driver to remove the outlet cover.

Hold the Power Perch against the outlet and begin screwing the outlet cover back on. The tension between the outlet cover and the wall is what keeps the Power Perch in place! I love that this little product keeps items off the counter top. You can use it in bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms and more. Need to charge your phone? Power Perch actually provides an ideal solution for charging mobile devices (tablet, smartphone, etc.) also.

Even if you’re not charging something, you can use Power Perch to store so many items, such as car keys, tools, makeup, oil diffusers and more. It’s available in white, black or almond colors, so you’re sure to find a color that fits your specific decor. So where do you need a power perch?

  • In the kitchen (for mobile devices)
  • In the bathroom (for electric shavers, toothbrushes, etc.)
  • In the garage (for power tools)
  • On a light switch (to store your keys, wallet, etc.)

Power Perch is manufactured by BeraTek Industries right here in the USA. To keep up with the latest news & offers from the company, check them out on Facebook and Twitter. You can purchase Power Perch online here.

3. Organize bathroom essentials!
To store my everyday bathroom essentials, I like these clear glass containers. Where are they from? They used to be old candles! I simply removed all the wax and peeled off the label. Now they stack beautifully and hold cotton balls & cotton swabs in a practical – yet decorative – way!

4. Store medicines in an attractive medicine cabinet!
Keep your medications in a cabinet that adds a decorative element to your decor. We chose this cabinet at the home improvement store because it offers plenty of storage space, features gorgeous molding/trim and includes a large mirror. Choosing pieces for the bathroom that serve multiple purposes is a great way to get your money to stretch farther.

5. Add cozy touches!
No bathroom is complete without some decorative elements. Add a lovely bath rug and a complementary shower curtain to complete the look. Other ways to incorporate fun design elements include some wall art and a fun light fixture for the space.
