7 Easy DIY Bathroom Projects You Can Complete While Staying Indoors

We're not suggesting you take on a strenuous renovation, like retiling the floor or installing a new toilet. These improvements are quick to do and will cost you almost nothing except your time—which, we're guessing, you have plenty of at the current moment.

1. Assessing the linens 

Go through your towels and other bath linens and pitch things that are threadbare

2. Editing your makeup

Old makeup can literally make you sick—as in, you could contract pinkeye—so take this time to sort through your medicine cabinet and drawers and toss anything that's expired.

You could also take a look at other personal care items in the bathroom and see what you can rearrange to give yourself more space. 

3. Empty and wipe down garbage cans

While it should be a weekly chore, emptying the bathroom trash can slip your mind. No judgment here. But these days, you should be getting those used tissues out of the house as soon as possible. Make it a point to empty each and every bathroom trashcan. And while you're at it, spray the inside and outside of the cans with a disinfecting spray.

4. Organize your linen closet (See last Blog Post for more details)

This one's easy. Repurpose clear bins or baskets from other areas of the house and make designated spots in your linen closet, assuming you have one, for items you need to store. For example, stash paper goods and cleaning supplies in one section. Use another bin for lotion, sunscreen, and drugstore supplies. The result? You'll free up shelves in your linen closet for extra blankets, beach towels, and washcloths.

5. Shine the Glass

Get out the Windex, and take a few minutes to get rid of streaks and water stains in the glass surround in your shower.

6. Do a quick clean 

You've probably stocked up on Clorox wipes and paper towels, so put them to quick use on your vanity. Once the vanity is smudge-free, put back just those few things you use regularly and corral them on a mirrored tray. Or keep your daily supplies in the drawer and create a tableau that's visually appealing (try perfume bottles, a pretty vase, and a nice bottle of hand lotion).

7. Revamp a shower curtain

If you're handy with a needle and thread, a new shower curtain is an inexpensive way to add color and energy to a plain bathroom.

Update your current shower curtain, or purchase a new one in a plain color. Add an embroidery pattern or a colorful panel of fabric to the bottom, for a homemade DIY upgrade. Pinterest is a great source for design inspiration and basic sewing instructions.
