    33 Upgrades To Make Your Household Feel More Grown-Up

    Pilling bedsheets are now a thing of the past.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A set of cooling bamboo sheets so you can seamlessly switch out the ones that have been pilling since 2017. And for those who wake up in a pool of sweat, these bedcovers will wick away moisture and ensure your snooze environment is as comfortable as can be.

    The grey set of sheets
    Amazon

    Includes one full sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillow cases.

    Promising review: "Suffering from severe insomnia, we are trying to change everything that we possibly can about my sleeping environment. I bought these after hearing the benefits of bamboo related products. This sheet set has to be one of the softest sets I've ever slept on. The fabric has a slick, silky feel to it. It stays quite cool and doesn't make you sweaty. I've slept rather well on these and don't even notice that they are underneath me. These sheets are great. I would love to have a few more sets." —Justin and Amanda Lanphere

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (originally $51.99, available in sizes Twin to California King and 12 colors).

    2. Or if you'd just prefer to swap out the covers you lay your head on, satin pillowcases will come in handy now that humidity is on the rise (an issue only adults care about, tbh). And their luxurious finish will trick people into thinking you earn a six-figure salary, without the need to spend said six figures.

    BTW! The matte satin finish will keep your hair tangle- and frizz-free, too.

    Promising review: "These pillowcases are just what I was looking for! They are super soft and very comfortable. If I fold them straight out of the dryer, they're virtually wrinkle free. Even when I forget, they don't wrinkle much at all. I prefer zippers on satin pillowcases so they don't slide off in the middle of the night. I've never had a problem with the zipper sticking me. I actually don't feel it at all. These are awesome pillowcases at a superb price! I will definitely be purchasing more in different colors." —Sherry

    Get it from Amazon for $9.95+ (originally $13.99, two in a pack; available in 16 colors and five sizes).

    3. Miracle-Gro food spikes if plant parenting has become your number one priority. This fertilizer can be placed in the soil and ensures your potted child flourishes to live a long, leafy green life.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These can make even the blackest thumb gardener look like they know what they're doing. I was given a plant from a neighbor and I subsequently almost killed it. I do not own plants. Every plant I've ever owned died, so I reserved myself to everything plastic, but since I've found these there is a slight glimmer of hope. I put these in the soil of the gifted plant and it brought the plant back to life. I thought it was a lost cause, most of the leaves were brown and dead but it's now growing new leaves and making a comeback. My neighbor recently saw the plant and was so happy it was still alive and thriving, I didn't have the heart to tell her it was almost thrown in the garbage, but since buying and using these I might just take the plunge and buy more live plants." —LexCat

    Get it from Amazon for $2.79 (for a pack of 24 spikes, also available in other sized packs).

    4. A stackable cutlery organizer that will *cue hallelujah music* tidy up your once nightmarish kitchen drawers and finally arrange silverware so you can open and close them with ease. Goodbye to the days of hodgepodge drawerfuls jammed with extra knives your S.O. insisted would fit!

    Reviewer photo of cutlery neatly organized
    amazon.com

    One tray fits up to 24 pieces of cutlery.

    Promising review: "THE BEST silverware storage organizer compartments I’ve EVER had in my entire life! We have a large family and therefore have the need for a lot of silverware. Unfortunately we have a small shallow and narrow drawer in our house but it was always full! Constantly disorganized before, and now amazingly organized. The only reason I would hesitate would be if your drawer is not adequately deep, but from reading reviews people said if they had 3.5 inches of depth it would be just fine which is exactly what I have and there’s adequate drawer depth for me. I measured my skinny drawer and realized I still had space for two units and took the plunge and am so glad I did! Silverware goes quickly from the dishwasher straight into the drawer and you don’t have to stack perfectly to put a lot in!!! ADD IT TO YOUR CART NOW, you’ll be glad you did if you have the same problem as we did!" —oceantiff

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in two sizes and four colors).

    5. A faucet splash catcher if you just *detest* droplets that turn into pools of water around le sink. This baby soaks up dishwater so you don't have to go ~chasing waterfalls~ down your kitchen cabinets.

    TwoLilacsStudio/Etsy

    TwoLilacsStudio is an Oregon-based shop that makes quality home goods with the option to have them personalized.

    Promising review: "LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care. Highly recommended!" —Alina

    Get it from TwoLilacsStudio on Etsy for $12+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    6. An adjustable hanging rod that'll expand your closet space and help you achieve, what grown-ups might consider, ~Instagram-worthy perfection~. The horizontal rod has the ability to go from 18 to 30 inches wide and it can be maneuvered up and down to assist you with hard to reach items.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Reviewers mention that this is a dream for small and big closets, alike!

    Promising review: "I love using this to add extra capacity in my client's closets (I'm a professional organizer). It's easy to put together, looks attractive, and is easily adjustable. I haven't had any complaints about durability, so I assume they are holding up well! Can't beat it for the price." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.87 (originally $19.99, available in two colors).

    7. Peel-and-stick decorative wallpaper for a trendy home decor facelift in a flash (if you're over a certain age, you know you love an accent wall). You can use this stuff on anywhere from walls to countertops and even floors!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "This contact paper was pretty easy to use and cut. Sure, it can be a pain to readjust, but, with a little patience, it’s really not so bad. It’s worth the reward! I rent, and my bathroom wall is cracked, crumbling sheet rock. This paper freshens up the bathroom (which is old as anything). It hides all the raised cracks and crumbles in the wall and looks SOOO MUCH BETTER! I will no longer be embarrassed of anyone using by bath. I’m putting this paper on everything!" —JFerro

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in eight sizes; you can also check out their shop page for more colors and styles).

    8. A set of bedsheet holders — the (swoon-worthy) solution you've been looking for to hold crumpled sheets in place. And if your covers happen to have lost a couple of inches in the dryer, these'll make sure they don't creep around when you're trying to find your comfy, still spot.

    A reviewer's before and after photos which show a sheet popping off the corner of a mattress and then a sheet attached securely
    amazon.com

    Each pack comes with four bands which can stretch from 12 to 18 inches and hold adequate tension.

    Promising review: "Say goodbye to re-arranging your fitted sheet every morning! My boyfriend sleeps like he’s rolling down a hill, so every morning I would wake up to the scratchy feel of my mattress cover because my soft silk fitted sheet was all over the place. Thanks to these bed bands, our sheets stay put no matter what. The only way for your fitted sheet to come off is if you manually remove these first. I wish I would have bought this so much sooner." —Khalysee

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $12.99+ (originally $17.99, available in five colors and four pack sizes).

    9. A wall-mounted toothbrush holder and dispenser, aka the bathroom counterspace savior seen on TikTok. Big kids are going wild over this nifty thing that dispenses toothpaste and clears up clutter.

    the white wall mounted toothbrush holder
    amazon.com

    This game-changer includes a toothpaste dispenser (which means less product waste!), four cups and holders, and a place to store your toothbrushes!

    Promising review: "I love this item! I saw it originally on TikTok and thought it would be perfect for our bathroom! We have one bathroom upstairs and five people who use it. This cleared up so much counter space for us! There are ventilation holes where the cups go to help make sure they dry properly. The toothpaste dispenser has really been working to get every last drop out of the tube. Would definitely recommend for a family or kids bathroom. There is also a little storage compartment behind the toothpaste that is great for extra brushes, Q-tips, or flossers." —Sariyah J

    Get it from Amazon for $16.79+ (originally $17.99, available in three colors).

    10. A set of ~luxe~ velvet slip covers to update your drab, worn-in sitting area with a living room glow up that is a lot more affordable than buying a brand-new couch. And it couldn't be easier for a DIY newb since you just slide these babies over your seating area and secure them with nonslip straps.

    amazon.com

    This four-piece set comes with a base cover and three individual cushion covers.

    Promising review: "I have never been so excited about a slipcover. Total transformation of our couch and love seat. I was worried about it not working on our leather couch, but it stays on really well due to the straps and the separate cushion covers. LOVE." —Brian/Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $43.49 (available in two sizes and 10 colors).

    11. A reusable sponge so you can ditch that kitchen funk and replace the icky, worn-out scrubber you're pretending still has some life left in it. This eco-friendly alt is made from recycled materials, is mildew-resistant, and can simply be thrown in the washing machine to be used over and over again.

    Marley's Monsters / Etsy

    Based in Oregon, Marley's Monsters creates eye-catching alternatives for everyday paper essentials.

    Promising review: "This is my second time purchasing these sponges. Love them! I'm going on a whole year with my first two sponges and just wanted to buy a few more as gifts and to add another sponge into my rotation. Great quality." —lilflostein

    Get it from Marley's Monsters on Etsy for $12+ (available in four backing colors as well as a three-pack).

    12. A create-your-own countertop kit to help you, a grown up, finally get those granite surfaces you've have always dreamt of. This wow-worthy hack will transform the look of your kitchen without the need to get contractors in.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    One kit will cover up to 35 sq. feet of countertop. And pro tip, some reviewers recommend glazing it with an epoxy coat for the extra wow factor!

    Promising Review: "I recently purchased my first home and remodeled it. I couldn't afford new countertops, so I decided to give this a try and am very glad I did. Overall, this was pretty easy to do :-) Now, people rave about my countertops and can't believe I painted them! They are impressive and look great. I am very glad I went this route and gave this product a try." —Duval Chad

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95+ (available in Bombay Black, Chocolate Brown, Sicilian Sand, and Slate).

    13. Affresh dishwasher cleaning tablets since you *finally* have an apartment with an appliance that does your least favorite chore for you — and you might want to treat it to a deep cleanse every so often. These dissolve residue buildup and blast away foul odors to get your machine cleaning dishes like it's supposed to.

    amazon.com

    Promising Review: "Works extremely well. We haven't done any cleaning on our dishwasher in 5 years, and the sliding dish trays were tough to pull out or push in, there was detergent build up all over the inside, and there was a milky film on all our cups. I bought Affresh, ran the dishwasher with two tablets while it was empty, and the difference was astounding. There was still some build up and I figured it would require another cycle, so I popped another two tablets in, ran the machine a second time, and now it looks and sounds brand new. No more film on the glasses, no more dirty dishes from clogged sprayers, no more odors, or build up around the door seals. I'm going to be buying Affresh from now on, and hopefully it will extend the life of my dishwasher." —Martoune

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    14. An upholstered storage bed that'll a) finally help you get those eight hours of sleep most adults say they need, and b) take care of your overrun closet that's virtually impossible to close. Organization + restful sleep? I think that's what they call #growth.

    The black bed with drawers underneath
    Novogratz

    Just so ya know, this doesn't require a box spring nor foundations!

    Get it from Novogratz for $519+ (available in three colors and sizes full to king).

    15. A snazzy dual-spray shower head so you can ditch the old grimy one for a spa-like model that'll actually make you feel squeaky clean. Because now you're of a certain age, you appreciate a well-pressured flow of water that a single head just can't provide.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "Wonderful product for low cost! I moved into a place that had an old shower head that barely worked. I decided to look into new shower heads, and this one popped up. I am very impressed. The installation instructions were very easy to follow. I have had no issues with cracks, malfunctions, or leaking. There is no leaking and dripping in the hose, either. Both work wonderfully. This makes the shower feel very spa-like. I recommend this highly." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    16. A sophisticated area rug to inject your space with style and sneakily disguise any unsightly scuffs that have probably lived in your home rent-free for years!

    the grey Moroccan rug
    Rugs USA

    Promising Review: "Affordable, quality and style — you cant beat that! I am a returning customer because I was so happy with initial purchase, I decided to complete the house with matching rugs. Loved that there were so many size options, too!" —Customer

    Get it from Rugs USA for $29.10+ (available in 12 shapes and sizes, and in 10 colors).

    17. A mid-century-esque accent chair that will tastefully add a pop of color to any living space. The comfy and elegant velvet details just happen to complement your new adulting mindset — and some reviewers are using it as a stylish way to add some pizzazz to their workspace.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I got the pink chair. It is exactly like the site images. It is so comfortable and looks expensive! I was looking into buying a similar chair from a retail store that is three times more expensive but this one is such a great value and high quality." —M. Zacarias

    Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in 28 colors) or two for $215.99 (available in nine colors).

    18. A Bearaby chunky knit weighted blanket you shared in your group chat *months* ago. Everyone reacted with either a heart or a thumbs-up, therefore... you got the approval to add to cart!

    Model underneath the midnight blue blanket
    Bearaby

    BuzzFeed Editor Maitland Quitmeyer has one and says: "I have this in the cooling version (in the color "avocado") and let's just say I've used it quite a bit in recent times. The large knit style is super chic, and the organic cotton is breathable (and there's nothing in it to create the weight *other* than cotton). I *love* it, and it's actually extremely cute, looking like a regular old fancy blanket! It's heavy, but still I take it from bed to couch and back to bed all the time as I WFH. It doesn't overheat on the couch (thanks to the fabric and the "holes" in the large knit), but provides a pleasant weight as I watch TV or work. And when it's layered over my duvet, it keeps me extra cozy and warm."

    Promising review: "I love this napper a little too much. I carry it up and down stairs all day as I move between the bed and couch for crafting, reading, etc. I like to grasp onto something when I sleep (usually the edge of the pillowcase), so the loops are awesome for tucking in my fingers and toes. Unlike another weighted blanket I own, the napper is stylish so I don't mind if it's out in the living room, and I can wash it, a huge deal given how often it's used. It's a bit of a pain to dry (it took three cycles in the dryer, so next time I am going to hand dry). The weight is very comforting, and I don't have an issue with overheating, even using it in the middle of summer in a muggy climate." —Madeline B.

    Get it from Bearaby for $249+ (available in three weights and nine colors).

    19. A foaming cleaner with a lemony-fresh scent — since your garbage disposal isn't just some mystery thing your dad complains about, it actually exists and now you have to deal with it, too. These'll do the trick to de-clog and deeply cleanse the underside of the splashguard and interior side walls.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising Review: "We got this when we moved into a new house. The previous tenants were gross, and we had to do a heavy, deep clean. This works wonders and took away the funky smell coming from the disposal. It's also fun to watch it foam up!" —Vicki C.

    Get it from Amazon for $3.98+ (originally $4.14, available in bags or boxes, and packs meant for four, eight, 12, and 24 uses).

    20. Wool dryer balls because, did I hear that correctly... these reduce the time it takes to dry laundry and replace the need for dryer sheets and softener? And to think, I had given up on my towels ever being fully dry — but when these are thrown in with them, they draw all the moisture out. Wow. I know what I'm adding to my adulting wishlist stat.

    the white wool balls
    Celsious

    These will last up to 1,000 washes! And pro tip from the brand: add a couple drops of your favorite essential oils to add a natural scent to your laundry.

    Celsious is a Black woman-owned business located in Brooklyn, New York. They specialize in creating eco-friendly laundry and cleaning products.

    Get a set of three balls from Celsious for $20.

    21. A compact marble desk with storage compartments and trendy hair pin legs to reward yourself with a workspace that isn't your parents' dining table.

    the white marble desk with gold legs
    Novogratz

    The desk requires minimal assembly since all you have to do is add the legs.

    Get it from Novogratz for $129 (originally $149, available in three colors).

    22. A Philips sunrise-mimicking light and alarm clock for anyone who could use some help resetting their circadian rhythm (fancy talk for sleep-wake cycle). This soothing clock won't bolt you up like regular ol' alarms but instead, wake you up gradually *and* it works in reverse with a sunset feature, too.

    The clock during the beginning of wakeup, with a dim orange/red glow to mimic a sunrise
    Amazon

    Because a nice, deep snooze is important now that you have responsibilities! This simulates the sunrise and sunset with 20 brightness settings that slowly increase over 30 minutes. And with your choice of five different wakeup sounds, the alarm only sounds once it's at its full brightness.

    Promising review: "This has really made a big difference in how I wake up every morning. On these short winter days, I always have to wake up before sunrise, and that's...challenging. I found myself hitting the snooze button at least three times, leaving very little time for me to get ready and to work on time. Having the sunrise simulation wakes me up gradually and completely. I almost always wake up fully before the music starts and I have not needed the snooze function yet. All of the wake up sounds were pleasant. I especially like the birdsong with flute music, as it reminds me of being in a spa. I like the dusk option for going to sleep. I set it for 30–60 minutes and read until it's too dark and I drop off to sleep. An additional bonus is that since I'm no longer using my cellphone as my alarm clock, I practice better sleep hygiene and keep my cellphone out of the bedroom. It is a significant investment but it has been worth it." —MsEdinger

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review (#11 in the post) for a first-hand account on how mornings can feel more invigorating.

    23. A set of shelf bins that'll transform your chaotic mess of groceries into a fridge worthy of making an appearance on MTV's Cribs. And if you live with forgetful housemates, you'll actually be able to see what you're stocked up on, so they don't end up piling in doubles of the things they already bought last week.

    reviewer's fridge with the shelves
    amazon.com

    The set includes: five drawers and one egg-holding.

    Promising review: "I’m in love! I don’t know if it's my obsession with being organized but it’s a game changer! No longer trying to reach for stuff in the back of the fridge and knock over a bunch of stuff in the process. I just slide it out grab what I want and slide it back!" —Libbey Durkee

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (originally $34.99).

    24. A Tushy bidet because it's our ~doody~ to inform you that cleaner bums are all the rage now that we have responsibilities. And we are here for anything that creates less waste, looks sleek (this comes in a platinum and bamboo style), and feels good on our backsides.

    Tushy

    This bathroom must-have doesn't require electricity or any additional plumbing, and can be temperature controlled.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my Tushy Classic! It’s super easy to install. It’s the first time I’ve ever felt SO CLEAN. This is one of the best purchases I’ve made in my life. I decided to go ahead and order more as gifts for my loved ones! Thank you Tushy, you da bum-dot-com! ;)" —Aimee B.

    Get it from Tushy for $99 (originally $129, available in 10 colors).

    25. Bar Keepers Friend cleanser for the pots and pans that have been passed down to you since college and have 10+ years of grime caked onto them. This stuff is no joke and will get to work on burned-on stains in just under 20 minutes!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This stuff is like magic! Straight up wizardry. I love it! I initially bought it to clean my sink, which is porcelain. I'd say it took less than a minute after making a paste with Bar Keepers Friend to clean the sink up to a nearly new shine. It's easy to find bunches of ways to use this stuff and each application is better than the last. Stainless steel, porcelain, ceramic, copper, brass, fiberglass, corian, chrome and aluminum. See? Magic! Anyhow, I've used it in the bathroom, to clean stainless steel pots and pans, on a 17-year-old Revereware tea kettle (which I thought would never be restored to its former loveliness, btw). This is a product that I will buy again and again and will happily recommend to anyone." —Nicci Stephenson

    Get it from Amazon for $7.50+ (also available in two- and three-packs).

    26. A 12-cup Ninja coffeemaker for anyone ready to whip up *more* than just two cups of caffeine to combat Monday morning grogginess.

    the coffee machine
    amazon.com

    This kitchen essential is programmable, comes with a 60-ounce removable water reservoir, adjustable warming plate (that has a two-hour auto-shutoff function), and your coffee can be brewed under different strengths: i.e. "classic" or "rich."

    Promising review: "After getting up and making it in my old coffee maker this is a big upgrade. No more filling the coffee pot and spilling water on the counter also no more coffee filters plus it makes great coffee which stays warm longer so I would recommend this coffee maker." —Lawrence Anderson

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (originally $99.99)

    27. Cute and customizable spice labels if minimalist packaging in Sans Serif fonts has you heart-eyed. This is an affordable and aesthetically pleasing way to clean up that disorganized, overrun spice drawer *and* with these on display, you'll finally be able to distinguish the parsley from the oregano.

    Three jars of spices with the labels parsley, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper
    RealAndVibrant/Etsy

    These come in customizable and standard label options, which include popular spice names like: Allspice, Black Pepper, Cayenne, etc.

    Real + Vibrant is a woman-owned small business based in Seattle that specializes in modern labels for your home and kitchen.

    Get them from RealAndVibrant on Etsy for $10+ (available in multiple sets and sizes).

    28. A UV Light Sanitizer Box to zap any germs from your home's most-used gadgets (think: the mucky TV remote that's never been disinfected). And you can also wirelessly charge your phone on top as well!

    Oh! And this can be used with aromatherapy oils! Before cleaning, pour the essential oil into the aromatherapy inlet, press the switch, and the aroma humidifier will work together with the cleaning.

    Promising review: "Super easy to use and convenient. Fits all different size of phones. Loved the wireless charging function. Definitely recommended!" —JZ

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (originally $19.99)

    29. An Our Place always pan because Instagram's favorite kitchen mate is ::chef's kiss:: for cooking pros and newbs alike. This beauty replaces the need for eight (yes, eight!) cookware items, so you'll be reaching for this anytime you want to fry, steam, boil, and even serve up your signature dish at your next dinner party.

    Our Place

    Nonstick ceramic coating? Check. Nesting beechwood spatula with built-in spoon rest? Check. Custom stainless-steel steamer basket? Check check.

    BuzzFeed Editor Bek O'Connell is lucky enough to have one of these and can be quoted as saying "Sometimes I just hold mine and sigh over how nice it is! Sorry if that's lame, but it is the truth. I am love with my pan."

    Promising review: "This pan is EVERYTHING! I went from making pasta in the basket to steaming broccoli in it and then finishing my meal in there. Then I forgot about cleaning it because I’m lazy — and the non-stick cleaned up so easily. The sponge they include is incredible, I do all my dishes with it now. Also it looks really cute sitting on my stove all day." —Darby S.

    Get it from Our Place for $145 (available in nine colors).

    30. An elegant 16-piece dishware set that'll transform even a microwave meal into a Michelin-style dining experience. So long, mismatched dinner decor!

    the grey set with gold rims
    Amazon

    Promising review: "Great quality and size dishes!! Perfect dish set to upgrade to after all these years! Modern dishes for a nice kitchen! Love the color too!!" —Lizzard

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (originally $69.99, also available in multiple piece sets and 13 colors).

    31. A KitchenAid 5-quart stand mixer if your grandma — and perhaps, The Great British Bake Off — are your biggest inspirations in the kitchen, it might finally be time to up your culinary skills. And with this esteemed kitchen gadget, there'll be no "soggy bottoms" in sight.

    The ice blue mixer
    Target

    It offers the capacity to make up to nine dozen cookies in a single batch and has 10 speeds to thoroughly mix, knead, and whip ingredients faster than you can say "On your mark, get set, BAKE!"

    Promising review: I've been wanting a KitchenAid mixer for years, and they have been hard to find during the pandemic. I've already made cookies with the paddle attachment, and my first attempt at bread with the dough hook. Everything has come out so well, and it's easy to clean. I chose this model because I wanted a bowl lift design (rather than the tilt head) so I could keep it under my cabinets. The KitchenAid mixers are pricey, but they are great investment because they last for years." —roashann

    Get it from Target for $429.99.

    32. A huggable set of towels reminiscent of the ones you might find at a fancy hotel spa. These are a *must* if you're looking to replace those shredded, mismatched linens from your college days.

    the gray set of towels
    Towels by Gus

    This cozy six-piece set comes with two wash cloths, two hand towels, and two bath towels.

    Towels by Gus is a small, family run business based out of Sonoma, California, specializing in bath towels and linens made from 100% USA-grown cotton.

    Promising review: "I was desperate to replace all of my mis-matched towels and found this amazing set of six towels. The towels are so soft and fluffy and now my whole bathroom is coordinated! Highly recommend!" —Mary Bess P.

    Get it from Towels by Gus for $69.99 (available in 11 colors).

    33. A pillowy soft bath mat to switch out the wet and dingy one you've been holding onto for no good reason. Extending the comforting feeling of a steaming hot shower? Yep, now that we're grown, the simple pleasures just hit different...

    the white pebble tufted bath mat
    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Promising review: "Just like everything else from this Haven line the bath rug is gorgeous. It is very soft and so nice to step on when coming out of the shower. The color is really beautiful. I would recommend buying anything from this line." —Susan

    Get it from Bed Bath & Beyond for $20+ (available in three sizes and two colors).
