Designing a new kitchen or bathroom involves thinking about where you will store things: pots, pans, toiletries, towels, dishes, food, and the like. One very important item on the list is cleaning supplies. Where will you store your broom, spray bottles, sponges, soaps, detergents, etc.? Below, we’ll take a look at some ways to store your cleaning supplies neatly.
Ideal Storage Conditions
There are different places one can store one’s cleaning supplies, such as the kitchen, the bathroom, the laundry room, or the garage. Some principles to keep in mind when you store your cleaning supplies is to keep supplies off the ground and in a dry, cool place. Enclosing it in such a way will prevent clutter, access by small children, and mold growth.
Under the Sink
Under the kitchen sink is one of the hardest spots to organize. With a clunky pipe inside that cabinet, the space can easily become highly disorganized. Even so, it is one of the most common and convenient spaces to fill with your spray bottles, paper towels, sponges, gloves, detergents, and other kitchen cleaning supplies.
Pull Out Pantry
For a more stylish and easy-to-reach solution, one can also include a pull-out spice rack or pull-out pantry in the kitchen design for storing cleaning items. A pull-out pantry allows for the largest vertical storage, so you can easily hang brooms, mops, etc., in this slim and covert storage unit. If all you need is a place for Clorox wipes, spray bottles, and other cleaners, an under-counter pull-out will do.
The cabinet under the bathroom sink is naturally a place where many will store their bathroom cleaning supplies. The bathroom cabinets can also become cluttered fast, but with shelving, tension rods, and baskets, it can be your go-to spot for all your frequently-used cleaning tools.
Whether you have closed cabinets, a closet, or open shelving, storage bins are one of the best organizational tools you can have for your janitorial needs. Woven, plastic, or cloth baskets with labels gather small items together and make the space look more attractive.
If you have room for a closet or cabinet in your kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room, you could create one to house the bulk of your home’s cleaning supplies. Everything from brooms to lightbulbs can be tucked away here.
In Plain View
If you prefer to keep your most-used items at hand at all times, there is a way to keep them at the kitchen, bathroom, or laundry sink without them becoming clutter. For example, one can put cleaners in reusable, stylish bottles on a tray.
