    36 Things For Your Bathroom You'll Probably Wish You'd Bought Years Ago

    You don't need a rubber ducky to ensure bath time is lots of fun ;).

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A magical hair catcher that'll save your relationship and keep your shower looking cleaner than ever.

    The Home Depot

    Promising review: "I have tried several types of hair catchers from the wire mesh inserts to the drop-in snares, but none have been as efficient as this product. The wire mesh traps had to be removed and cleaned after each use and the snares only caught a small amount of hair and eventually was not a remedy. The TubShroom came right out of the package and inserted directly into the drain with ease. I no longer have an issue with standing water in the shower / tub as with the wire mesh or other insert types because of the design of this product. Well-thought-out and a definite improvement over all other products out there." —Seed Member

    Get it from The Home Depot for $12.99 (available in five colors).

    2. Hassle-free shower curtain hooks – they'll make you wonder how you ever survived all these years without them in your life.

    The Home Depot

    Promising review: "When we bought our house, the previous owners left expensive bronze shower hooks in the guest bathroom. Although they looked nice, they fell off EVERY time the shower curtain was opened or closed. I found these on The Home Depot and decided to give them a try. We LOVE them and they match the bronze curtain rod they are on perfectly. They roll with ease, stay on no matter how many times they're used, and they look nice! I would definitely buy them again!!" —KKapri

    CedarandStoneGarden / Etsy

    Promising review: "This little toothbrush holder is awesome! Looks cool on the counter, much better then a plastic or metal cup style. I like that the holes go all the way through so that water doesn't build up in the bottom and get nasty." —Julie Pokorny

    16. A tiger-themed bath mat to make sure your toes are nice 'n' toasty from the second you hit pause on watching Tiger King on your phone in the tub and step out onto the floor (so you can then dry off and continue watching in bed).

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is SUCH a moment! It’s held up great so far and looks just like it does in the picture. I’m obsessed! I got the white version and it goes great with fun decor! Can’t recommend enough!" —elizelliott

    Target

    Promising review: "I've always hated the idea on storing a drippy, germ-filled toilet brush under the sink and this product totally solved the issue. The heads snap on and pop off easily without the need to touch them. Was very pleasantly surprised at how well the heads scrub the bowl, didn't expect them to be that durable. I originally bought one for the master bath and loved it so much I bought one for each bathroom." —Jessamine

    18. A bamboo bath tray to give you just one more reason to fill your tub to the brim and soak for hours while listening to Enya.

    Promising review: "Those darn beard shavings ... are no longer part of my life! Honestly, besides being funny, it's really useful ! 11/10 would recommend!" —Firebox Customer

    Get it from Firebox for $16.99.

    21. A faux succulent wall that'll transform your bathroom into a steamy, lush rainforest of sorts without the added stress of caring for real plants.

    Pottery Barn

    West Elm

    Get it from West Elm for $44.25+ (available in two sizes or as a set).

    23. A candle in an elegant glass jar to make you feel like you're unwinding at a high-end spa rather than rushing to get ready for brunch in your own bathroom.

    Get it from CB2 for $14.95+ (available in three sizes).

    Anthropologie

    Promising review: "We love this mat and have gotten so many compliments from guests! The black and light gray hide dirt better than a white mat would, and we love the British lingo! Makes me smile every time we use 'the loo!'" —MrsDJ

    Get it from Anthropologie for $48.

    26. A FlexiSnake tool that'll remove so much gunk and hair from your drains you could probably make a wig with it (but plz, don't).

    The Home Depot

    Promising review: "This is an absolutely FANTASTIC invention! It works great in the floor drain of my shower. The holes are too small for the other type being sold (made of hard plastic with big teeth, as shown). That type can break off in your drain. But this flexible Millipede is small enough to fit way down the holes and get all the hair back out. Great purchase!" —Discouraged

    Get it from bando for $15.

    Bed Bath and Beyond

    Get it from Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99.

    30. Or a bath caddy you can hang over the side of your tub if you prefer to only keep your must-haves out in the open.

    Anthropologie

    Get it from Anthropologie for $78.

    31. A three-shelf organizer that conveniently fits over your toilet as a lovely place to put your candles and tissue box.

    Get it from Anthropologie for $68 (available in two styles).

    35. A towel from Havly that'll get softer each time you wash it — don't you think you deserve it?

    Havly

    I recently picked up one of these towels and it is unbelievably soft. It's thicker than most of my towels but seemingly takes up less space. The loop to hang it seems super sturdy which is an added bonus. Definitely pick up a set for each of your parents.

    Get it from Havly for $44 (available in five styles).

    36. And a Fohm Dispenser plus a 6 month supply, because who wouldn't want the chance to upgrade the unnecessary amount of toilet paper they've already bought into something that feels downright lavish?

    Fohm

    The Fohm dispenser releases a paraben-and-fragrance-free cleanser you can add to your toilet paper to avoid irritation and leave your booty feeling cleaner than ever without risking destroying your pipes with wipes (which, I'm sure, your landlord will appreciate).

    Promising review: "I LOVE my Fohm dispenser. It's so cute and so practical. I love the idea of the sensor so you don't have to touch anything. I thought it was kind of a gimmick, but now that I have it, it makes perfect sense !!!" —Julia Rose
