Winter Cleaning: 6 Useful Bathroom Accessories and Furniture Worth Investing
Although we usually say spring cleaning, for a mom with younge kid and have to work full time, it is very hard to keep up cleaning. Hence, I do winter cleaning mostly during the holiday and this year, my most focus is the bathroom. Living in a large city, small condo, limited space is always a problem. Especially when you have kids, their stuff just invade any corner of your life. Hence, I decided to invest some money to add more storage in a nice way. The end result is pretty good, and I found my bathroom is clean and clutter-free. Not sure how long I can keep that. But below is what I did and found. Just listed them below so any one has bathroom storage issue can use as an inspiration.
Slim Bathroom Storage Cabinet
I have a quite debut between the Spirich Home cabniet and AOJEZOR one. The Spiric home one has more capacity but in returning, it is much deeper than the AOJEZOR cabinet. I love both of them but considering the place I will put cabinet I chose the AOJEZOR one in the end. But these two are both great for making use of small area to provide some extra storage.

Wall mount storage
I already had a medical cabinet on the wall besides my sink but honestly, that small cabinet just not enough. I want to have an extra wall mounted cabinet to provide me more storage using vertical space. The Mirror storage cabinet seems a pretty good option, which provides you a full body mirror as well as a large storage space. Also, it can integrate to the existing door hinge hardware so you dont really need to drill a hole to hang this one. But due to the awkward position of my bathroom door, I gave up this option and goes with the Flip Frame Art to Counter. It is small and can be hung over toilet. Moreover, it not only can hold 30 lb items but doubles as a wall art display and a counter top!

Under Sink Rack
The under sink area is a bit awkward to use due to the pipe. A normal two tiers storage wont work with the pipe unless it is slim. Hence, I got two choices when I planned to get an under sink rack. Two slim ones put on both sides to avoid the pipes or a configurable one allows pipe goes through. After measuring, I pick the second option to save some moneny. But if your under sink area is pretty limited, the slim one is a good choice as well.

The waterproof layer on the back side can prevent liquid penetrating into the cabinet, thus keep the cabinet dry and clean. I also put it under my kitchen sink and so far so good.
