    1. A quality bath mat that can be washed and dried so you can step onto a squeaky clean cloud immediately after your shower. Nothing like cleanliness in every aspect of your life!


    Promising review: "I love these cotton bath mats, great quality. They wash so beautifully, no shrinkage, no wrinkling, and beautiful colors. This was my third order and plan to order more. The weave does not pull, ball up, plus I was so glad there was little lint, it's actually made with quality materials." —Dodie T.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in eight colors).

    2. A cute set of signs for those bare bathroom walls to remind you to relax, you're home now, it's time to unwind.

    Homegrown Chic Designs / Etsy / Via

    Get it from Homegrown Chic Designs on Etsy for $30+ (available in two sizes and colors).

    3. A trendy, minimalist shower curtain, because functionality and style can go together like peas and carrots.


    Promising review: "I ordered this for my new apartment and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the material and the pattern. The fabric is sturdy and water-repellent as advertised and seems to be of higher quality than some more expensive options I've seen on Amazon and in stores. The decoration is also subtle and tasteful, and looks far nicer than most shower curtains, especially at this price point. I'm very happy with it." —ImperatorRomanum

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in five patterns).

    4. And fancy shower curtain hooks that The Queen (probably) has in her own mansion castle bathroom. And by The Queen I mean Beyoncé.


    Promising review: "These are so pretty! I am using these with an eyelet shower curtain and accessories. The detail really stands out and they look slightly distressed. I'm glad I bought them." —Lisa Melione

    Get it from Amazon for $12.69.

    5. A wall-mounted glass shelf perfect for displaying your dope bathroom supplies. (The ugly stuff can go in the medicine cabinet, never to be seen by visitors).

    Promising review: "Good product, for the price. It is packaged really efficiently. I am impressed with the quality of the product. The stainless steel part is nice and sturdy and the glass is the right thickness. Before you buy it, make sure you have (or you can borrow) the right tools to help you install the shelf properly: a drill, a hammer, long precision Phillips screwdriver and a slotted screwdriver. Not sure why they opted to use different types of screws for the wall and the glass holding part. Once installed properly the shelf looks really nice. I am considering purchasing a second one for our other bathroom." —DiM

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50+ (available in black and two-tier).

    6. A matching bathroom accessory set that you'll actually want on your counters. It's so sleek, it almost hurts to look at.


    Get it from Wayfair for $17.33 (originally $22.99).

    7. A linen-covered hamper with removable bags so you can keep your stinky clothes out of sight. No one needs to know you haven't done laundry in two weeks, it can be your secret.


    Promising review: "Great quality hamper. Beautiful, sturdy, and holds a lot of laundry. It's easy to assemble, just folds open and then you insert the flat bottom panel. Love it. I bought two and then came back and ordered another! Definitely recommend. It's worth the extra money because it's not flimsy and will definitely last a long time. Plus the removable liner is a great idea. It attaches with four small Velcro loops. And with the amount of laundry this holds, you won't be removing a full bag every day, so the time it takes to detach and reattach the liner is totally worth the convenience it offers." —AmazonAddict

    Get it from Amazon for $42.96+ (available in single or double, and four colors).

    8. A pack of soy candles in cool tins to make your bathroom smell like heaven and help you relax at the end of stressful work days. Who needs a spa when you have ambiance?


    Promising review: "Absolutely lovely! These candles are super cute. Although they are small, their gentle scent is noticeable. I burned my first candle for about three hours and it was awesome. I also like the way they are packaged. Each candle is cradled and has its own lid. Instructions are also included. These are wonderful. I'm going back for more." —Tracy W.

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $13.89.

    9. A bathtub caddy that'll let you take your best book, tablet, wine, and whatever else you need into the bath to ensure you never have to leave anytime soon. Plus, you compose the best tweets there, so everything must be on hand just in case genius hits.

    Amazon, Jazzychaos /

    Promising review: "I was worried, based on the cost, that the product would be flimsy or fall apart, it hasn't. I really love everything about it. The finish, durability, design, and user-friendliness. Came fully assembled and has all the components that you would want for your baths. I highly recommend as a must have in your home!" —jazzychaos

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99.

    10. A set of luxurious, hotel-quality towels so you can feel like you're on vacation every time you step out of the shower. Best part? You won't even have to swipe these and put 'em in your suitcase. They're yours.


    Promising review: "I LOVE these towels! And who loves towels? I had no idea towels could be so much higher quality than what I had been using. They are thick, but not so thick that they don't stay put when you wrap them around your head. And they're soft and super absorbent without getting soggy. I actually look forward to using them when I get out of the shower. I ordered this set and got an additional matching set of just the larger towels. I've been wanting new towels for a while, but I figured mine were good enough. I finally broke down and ordered these, and I can't believe I waited so long." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95+ (available in 11 colors).

    11. A toilet pumice stone because nothing ruins your bathroom more than a dirty bowl. Cleanliness is important, folks!

    Amazon Customer /

    Promising review: "Used this on my toilet and was amazedI We just rented a new apartment and no matter what we tried, nothing worked. We tried everything. But with just a little elbow grease and the Pumie we were able to remove the deposits. See for yourself." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.64.

    12. An over-the-toilet storage unit for keeping towels, extra TP, and other bath essentials in one nice, organized place. You'll never wonder if you ran out of shower gel ever again.


    Get it from Wayfair for $106.99 (originally $140.04).

    13. An extendable scrubber you can use to get in those upper corners, creating a bathroom people will think was cleaned professionally, but really you scrubbed it clean 10 minutes before everyone walked through the door.


    Promising review: "Definitely a worthwhile investment, easy to dismantle and store after drying. With two people regularly using a shower, tubs typically get a bit gray where the feet go, add soap scum as well, and a short person with a deep garden tub don't mix too well. I paired it with CLR to clean the shower without any problems, and the scrubber worked better than I thought it would with minimal effort. The scrub pad is removable, meaning once you've worn it down you can replace it without having to purchase a new tool and pad for maintenance of your tub. This feature is fairly rare on most of these tub scrubbers charging such inflated prices. Therefore, if you're looking for function and ability to reuse, consider the OXO Good Grips Extendable Tub/Tile Scrubber. You'll get your money's worth." —K. L. Phan

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    14. A super plush bathrobe you'll never want to take off. You might as well inform your friends and family now of your new wardrobe. Go ahead and make the formal announcement on Instagram.


    Promising review: "I was looking for a bathrobe to really *live* in. This is SO SOFT and plush! It's basically like if someone took my favorite blanket, and let me walk around the house with it draped over me (only without the dragging). I accidentally got the one with the hood, which I didn't even realize was an option, and I'm QUITE pleased. I was worried it wouldn't keep its softness after washing, so I put off throwing it in the washer for a while, but I needn't have worried. I've washed it three times now, and it feels just as wonderful as before.

    I wasn't sure on which size to get. Some of the reviews said it was a bit short, and I'm 5'7" with long arms, but I tend to wear large-size clothes. I was tempted to size up and get the XL just in case (I don't feel like a robe can REALLY be too big), but I stuck with the L. It's a great fit. The sleeves come up to my second knuckles when I drop my hands down, and the robe comes about 6" past my knees. I think an XL would've also been fine, but I think it runs true to size." —K. Prystalski

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in size S-XL, and 21 colors and style combinations).

    15. An actually cute two-tiered shelf that'll free up a little more countertop space. Just try not to get any foundation stains on it.


    Promising review: "This is really pretty. Bigger than I thought it might be, which I know is subjective and not very helpful but my point is you won’t feel that it's dinky. The plastic really does look like glass — it’s nice and clear. The trim is more copper than rose gold but since I like both, it’s just perfect." —Lucinda Cummings Kilmer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in two colors).

    16. A toilet deodorizing spray for getting rid of all those unwanted smells. Simply "spray before you go and no one else will ever know!" Except you, of course.

    @poopouri / Via

    Promising review: "One bathroom in an apartment just isn't enough for two adults with a healthy colon. Enter Poo-Pourri. As this was the first time trying the product, I tried the original scent. It has an amazing lemon scent. It is very fresh and not overpowering. It is not synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon." —Allison H.

    Get it from Amazon for $5.49+ (available in 10 sizes and 24 scents).

    17. A multi-functional, multipurpose cleaner you can use to rid your tub, sink, tile — pretty much everything in your bathroom — from nasty stains and grime. Squeaky clean is the name of the game.

    It's the Windex to my My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Stains? Bar Keepers Friend. Grime? BAR KEEPERS FRIEND.

    18. AND! A power scrubber to help you get those crevices sparkling clean. Who needs elbow grease when you have this?


    Promising review: "I love it! Here's my list of why I love it.

    # 1. Much better quality than I expected. It's solid, and doesn't feel cheap. It's also bigger than I thought, so it feels comfortable in my hand.

    # 2. It's powerful. Uh ya', don't put this thing near your mouth. It hurts, cause it's way more powerful and abrasive than an electric toothbrush.

    # 3. It works very well. It's great for cleaning around faucets. That's why I bought it. My faucets are now gunk-free.

    Would I recommend this product? Heck ya." —Matriarchofnerds

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    19. A Turkish cotton towel that'll leave you feeling like you're wrapped in luxury. It'll almost transport you to the French Rivera it's so fancy.


    Promising review: "This is the towel I have been looking for for a long time now. It is very absorbent and it dries quickly after I hang it up to dry. It is large enough to wrap around me without that dreaded gap and it is long enough when I wrap it that it covers me down to the middle of my thigh. The quality of the material is excellent and the color is a lovely muted tone, and the best of all is there was no color drain after washing. I would highly recommend this towel for anyone who needs a quick drying towel. I just wish I could get a hand sized towel in this color to match." —k gannon

    Get it on Amazon for $16.50 (available in seven colors).

    20. A timeless mirrored tray you'll need for all of your spa-day products. I'm talkin' scrubs, lotions, and essential oils. Maybe you'll invite your friends over and make a night of rest and relaxation.


    Promising review: "I bought this tray to use in my bathroom, to hold various creams, serums, etc. It’s a perfect size for that, it’s lovely, and very sturdy — not at all light or cheap feeling. I’m super pleased with it, especially for the price!" —Jocelyn Merkel

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (other accessories available), or a similar all-gold one for $9.49.

    21. A MARBLE toilet brush and holder because you're so sophisticated even your toilet brush has a lush place to rest. Hell, you might not even use this to scrub your toilet, it's just too pretty.


    Get it from CB2 for $29.95.

    22. A bamboo storage rack to hold all your extra bath stuff so your guests don't have to rummage through your cabinets looking for toilet paper as an excuse to be nosy., Michelle B /

    Promising review: "I needed a small set of shelves for my bathroom and this four-tier shelf was perfect. It fits the space exactly. It is really very attractive and functional. It took me no time at all to put together — all the pieces were there and the tool I needed was included. Very simple one person job to create this lovely little shelf that would be attractive anywhere! I'm thinking of getting my mom one for her living room." —E L

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99 (available in two colors).

    23. A wickedly cool set of cotton bath mats that'll cover heavy-traffic areas, and that are so soft your feet will never want to leave. Totally beats the cold tile, am I right?

    Pier 1

    Psst! These are machine-washable. Bath mats are popular homes for GERMS so you can easily toss these in the wash when they're ready for a good cleaning.

    Get it from Pier 1 Imports for $37.95.

    24. A pack of sea sponges that'll make you feel like you're actually at the spa. Plus, they're biodegradable and hypoallergenic for all the babes with sensitive skin!

    Pottery Barn

    Get it from Pottery Barn for $13.30, or a similar one from Amazon for $13.50.

    25. An over-the-door towel rack so your stylish hand towels have their own place in the bathroom instead of on the floor.


    Promising review: "We needed a new towel rack to go over our door and this works perfecty. It does not interfere with our door closing in any way. This item arrived from Amazon when I was told it would arrive and was so easy to put together. There were some reviews that found this item difficult to assemble. There are six small screws and three poles. You just slide the poles into the holders at both ends and carefully put the small screws and tighten them. It took about five minutes if that to assemble and was very easy and it looks really nice as well. I found this to be very sturdy as well. The towel bar does the job it was intended for and you can easily slide towels on and off and hang clothes, wash clothes, etc. There are two hooks at the bottom as well." —Keith F.

    Get it from Amazon for $20.85.

    26. A wire basket with a convenient handle to store your new sponges and all of the things you need but have no place to put because you shop for home goods way too much.


    Promising review: "I use this product on the sink counter in my bathroom to store all my toiletries. It makes it super convenient, all while maintaining a great clean look! It can hold like 10 different bottles, so the size is great and is easy to pick up and move when you need to clean!" —cteras

    Get it from Amazon for $14.05 (available in three sizes and colors).

    27. A natural, plant-based multi-surface cleaner perfect for cleaning your bathroom without the harsh chemical scent that always irritates your nostrils.


    Promising review: "I've gone through the house from kitchen to bathroom, cleaning appliances, wood work, all the usual things in a house. So far it's done a great job, cleans, fresh smelling, without the harsh chemicals." —Kari M. Lucas

    Get a two pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    28. A rainfall showerhead so you actually look forward to waking up in the morning...or getting ready for bed. I will not partake in the AM/PM shower debate!!! But for the record...AM showers are spectacular.


    Promising review: "The water pressure is fantastic. The showerhead itself is also beautiful...classically upscale is how I would describe it. I felt a bit like I was on vacation the first few times I used it)! Overall, it was super easy to install, and I was able to do it all by my lonesome. Great price, great product, great buy!" —Amanda Y.

    Get it on Amazon for $29.99 (available in two colors).
