    A set of two stainless steel garbage cans

    Promising review: "These stainless steel cans are in a gorgeous Heritage Floral print, on a soothing blue background, with a dark, solid blue lid. Each can opens via a footswitch, and they close slowly without any noise whatsoever. Even though the larger of the two is actually smaller than a standard kitchen trash bin, I prefer this one, just for how much easier and sanitary it is to use. I am going to buy another set for my master bedroom and bath."—Dannielle420

    Promising review: "Chenille mats are my fave, but I've never found one that actually stays put. This one stays put! It has a strong anti-slip bottom, which keeps it in place. The blue color is absolutely gorgeous and matched my bathroom wonderfully. It feels so luxurious on the feet. I also find that it dries quickly. Really can't go wrong here." —BRKLYNMOM91

    Promising review: "So happy to a found a solution for taking off the shower curtain liner for washing without undoing the entire shower curtain. These hooks glide effortlessly on the shower rod and keep both the curtain liner and the curtain securely attached. The price was great compared to similar alternatives. Will be replacing all the hooks in my house with these!" —3littlebirdies

    Price: $6.44+ (available in two colors) 

    17. And! A curved adjustable shower curtain rod for making your shower look like it belongs in a charming boutique hotel.

    An adjustable shower curtain rod

    Promising review: "There is nothing I dislike about this shower curtain. It's a great investment toward a spacious, and, therefore, more enjoyable shower experience. It's amazing how much more room there is. The only regret I have about this purchase is that I didn't make it sooner!"—Debbie

    An over-the-shower door towel rack

    Promising review: "This is a very nice towel bar. Purchased it for my bathroom to put the bath towel, washcloth, and towel for drying my hair on after use, because the only towel bar in my bathroom is used for my nice decorative towels. This towel bar is a nice size, holds an extra-large bath towel nicely, and was super simple to put together." —Catherine

    Price: $24.95+ (available in two colors) 

    19. An easy-hang shower curtain tension rod if your current rod keeps falling down whenever you're showering.

    An easy-hang shower curtain tension rod

    Promising review: "I'd purchase the correct rod/inches for my shower. All you have to do is just adjust the length to what you want/need it to be. Put into place then twist."—Nique46

    Price: $4.96 

    20. A paisley-printed bath towel for adding some vintage charm to your towel rack.

    The floral printed towel in blue and gray

    Promising review: "I love plush towels. I feel like there is nothing better than a nice thick, plush, soft towel after a nice shower. Well, these towels fit the bill. My 6- and 10-year-olds were impressed when I unboxed these and wanted to snuggle them like blankets. They have been used, washed, and dried many times in less than two weeks' time. Each time they come out of the dryer someone grabs it (instead of the bathroom set) for their showers. They are beautiful and just amazingly soft!" —MissyD 

    Price: $9.72 (available in two colors) 

    21. A 6-liter garbage can, because if you haven't changed your bathroom garbage solutions in a while, here is your sign.

    A six-liter garbage can

    Promising review: "This is a pretty good little can. We needed something for a narrow space, and this fits the bill. The previous one was metal and occasionally banged against the commode. This one doesn't make near as much noise and does potentially less damage. The only thing it needs is some sort of handle in the back to make it easier to move. But it does have an internal can to grab without taking out the whole can." —Skip  

    Price: $14.62

    22. A set of shower curtain hooks that are designed not to rust so you won't have to change them every year.

    The non-rust shower curtain hooks

    Set includes 12 non-rust shower curtain hooks

    Promising review: "These shower hooks are easy to install. They are basically like an S-Hook. You put the end thru the hole in your curtain and loop it through, and then put the hook over your curtain rod. I have a double rod, and they fit on one but are a little tight on the other. They work fine on the standard size rod. My second curtain rod is a little thicker, so they don't slide as easily on that one. They are made very well and they seem to be very durable. I expect that they will last a long time." —Lucy

    Price: $8.79 (available in two colors) 

    23. A pull-out storage unit so you can have your cleaning supplies close by whenever a bathroom emergency decides to rear its ugly head.

    The pull-out storage unit

    Promising review: "It holds my case hairdryer, curling iron, tissue box, spare toilet paper rolls, bathroom cleansers, and sink plunger —all things that used to crowd my vanity, look ugly sitting on the window sill, and atop the toilet tank. It is now neatly tucked away in the otherwise LOST 5 inches of previously WASTED space between the vanity and wall. The shelving easily rolls out of its hiding place when I need any of the aforementioned items on the middle and bottom shelves. Top shelf items are accessible, without moving the unit. I bought one for each bathroom. It is an inexpensive, attractive, added-space organizer that actually could be used in any area where you have 5 inches of otherwise wasted space. Assembly is by simple press-fit. I am more than satisfied."—Jean

    Price: $48 

    24. A faux marble vanity tray for the bathroom if you overslept and don't want to waste time searching for your favorite perfume, serum, or sunscreen products.

    A faux marble vanity tray

    Promising review: "When I opened this tray, I was shocked how it shined so much and was so beautifully made. The light was on and the glitter that was embedded in the marble tray was sparkling all over. I put my beautiful perfume bottles in it and they shine even brighter now too. This is a beautiful tray and looking forward to getting the rest of the set. It is a perfect match in my bathroom. Splendid!"—Mojo

    Price: $9.97

    25. A seven-piece bathroom accessory set to match your bathroom's monochromatic theme to a tee.

    A seven-piece bathroom accessories set

    Set includes one toothbrush holder,  one soap dispenser, one soap dish, one cup, one trash can, and one toilet bowl crush.

    Promising review: "This is the most wonderful thing ever invented. Everything you see here comes packaged in the garbage can. You assemble some pieces (super easy) and then it's like OMG cute bathroom time! Impress your friends with matching accessories that allow good hygiene. It's totally a hit at abandoned house parties as well. Seriously though, the material is sturdy but definitely cheaper than other bathroom sets. It is totally functional with any bathroom though. Soap dispenser works well, toilet brush does a good job, toothbrush holder hold toothbrushes like no other! It's amazing!"—katamariqueen

    Price: $16.95 (available in two colors) 

    26. A five-piece bath set for keeping all your shower essentials in the perfect place, so you won't have to ask your roommate to bring them to you.

    The set

    Set includes one caddy, one soap dish, one toothbrush holder, two hooks, four large and six medium water-resistant strips. 

    Promising review: "I've been needing something for my bathroom/shower to store all of my things, and this definitely comes in handy. It is made out of heavy-duty plastic, and it's very sturdy. You can easily remove each piece by pulling on the tab attached to the sticky adhesive. Once removed, there won't be any residue or paint missing. I'd highly recommend these."—SMB1986

    Price: $20.94

    27. A bamboo bath caddy tray, which holds everything from electronics to wine to food, so you can make 'me time' even more relaxing.

    Promising review: "My fiance likes to take baths to relax. He also likes to be on his phone while in a bath watching videos. I wanted him to have something nice to put his drink and phone on, and this was just absolutely perfect. It even came with grips for the sides of the tub. Well worth the money." —Shannon

    Price: $39.99

    Promising review: "I ordered two of these wastebaskets for my farmhouse-style bathrooms. They are lightweight and the beveling is gorgeous. The style is perfect as a finishing touch for a farmhouse or industrial-style decor. The baskets fit neatly in my bathroom spaces, which are small, NYC-sized bathrooms. I could easily see these wastebaskets in a larger bathroom where there is more space, too. Very happy with the purchase!" —CKNash

    Price: $31.99+ (available in four colors) 

    30. A pack of 36 washcloths, because let's be honest: you can never have enough of these.

    A pack of 36 washcloths

    Promising review: "Came packaged so well and wrapped in plastic. I was worried about them being damaged towels but nope they were perfectly fine and I love them. I use these towels all the time but I usually buy them in-store. Due to me not wanting to leave my home I found them online and they are just what I wanted. Thank you!" —Anastasia

    Price: $12.50 (available in four colors) 

    31. A collapsible laundry hamper for the bathroom to keep dirty (and stinky) clothes out of sight.
