    22 Things That'll Help Make Your Bathroom Look Its Best

    Dear bathrooms everywhere — don't let anyone tell you you're not beautiful.

    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 tiered organizer that'll not only help you take the proper steps to clearing off your counter clutter, but also display your favorite products on a pedestal like they deserve.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this shelf! I have used them to completely organize my bathroom closet and plan on using it to organize even more spaces around the house." —Robert

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in three colors and two sizes).

    2. A clear shower curtain liner with roomy mesh pockets to keep all your products within arm's reach, but out of sight of guests. Your visitors will think you're the only human alive whose bathroom isn't full of unsightly, half-full shampoo bottles.

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I couldn’t be happier with my purchase, which seems expensive for a shower curtain liner but is totally worth the price. Its mesh pockets are incredibly sturdy and even *I* can fit all my shower stuff in there. (FYI, I often keep three or four body washes and conditioners each in the shower at all times.) There’s lots of reinforcement where each pocket meets the liner and at the top of the liner, so dropping a weighty bottle of shampoo in a pocket is NBD. Obviously, you want to try for even weight distribution between the pockets and toiletries, but it doesn’t seem to be an issue. And these smooth-gliding hooks I also bought for my new digs make opening and closing my shower curtain as smooth as buttah." —Elizabeth Lilly, BuzzFeed Shopping & Products Senior Editor (check out her full review here, #7)

    Get it from Amazon for $14.

    3. A bar of cool rainbow soap so stunning you almost won't want to use it.

    TwinklesBeautique/Etsy

    Get it from TwinklesBeautique on Etsy for $6.25.

    4. A transparent makeup organizer with over 6,000 positive reviews that is clearly superior to just having all your products strewn about like a Sephora that was ransacked on Black Friday.

    amazon.com

    It's got four drawers lined with removable padding, plus a detachable top shelf with 16 compartments.

    Promising review: "LOVE this product! It comes in two separate pieces but the top fits perfectly on top of the drawers. It's a great size and fits allllmost all of my makeup. It's great for people who are starting out their makeup collection, but you can really fit a lot of products in the drawers. Fits great on bathroom counters, dressers, or a makeup counter! I definitely would recommend this product. It was carefully wrapped and packaged, too." —Jess Russo

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 19 designs).

    5. A sweet ceramic bunny who'd like to take this ~hopportunity~ to tail you about how he can keep your cotton balls conveniently organized.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $14.98.

    6. A super affordable, game-changing power scrubber that'll leave your bathroom sparkling with basically zero effort on your part.

    Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This thing works small miracles: I cleaned about half of my bathroom's grout to its original sparkling-clean cream color in 40 minutes, and it took honestly no effort at all. I literally sat on the floor, dipped the bristles in a Castile soap dilution (2-3 drops of soap + 1/2 cup of water; but you could use almost any cleaner of your choice), then lazily ran the scrubber back and forth over a six-inch section of grimy, dark-gray grout — and it only took about 30 seconds for that grout to go from dingy to bright. I started by using the specialty grout brush, but then I decided to try it with the default brush and that seemed to work just as well, IMHO!" —Natalie Brown (check out her full review here)

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    7. A minimal, clear version of the Squatty Potty able to do the same doodie (help you assume a squatting posture that makes going number two less strenuous) as the original, while being way less conspicuous.

    Amazon

    Check out BuzzFeed's full review of the original Squatty Potty.

    Promising review: "This is an awesome product. Because it's clear, it doesn't change the look of your bathroom. And yes, the Squatty Potty really does work well for its intended purpose. This acrylic version is a little pricey, but it's a quality product that seems like it will last a long time." —Amazon Customer

    Get it for $78.76, or get the classic Squatty Potty for $24.99, both from Amazon.

    8. The Bucko soap scum and grime remover spray, which'll make all the gunk and grime in your shower or tub do a Houdini-level vanishing act.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Have you ever seen the movie The Santa Clause? There's a scene where Tim Allen's character shaves away his white beard and then ~WHOOSH!~ it reappears instantaneously. That's basically my bathtub and soap scum. I've tried many products to keep it at bay, but this is the only one that has ever really worked. Not only does it have a cute dog on the packaging, it also allows me to (easily!) wipe away dastardly soap scum without having to use a lot of muscle! Which is great, because I don't exactly have a lot of muscle to use." —Mallory McInnis

    Get it from Amazon for $18.88.

    9. An LOL-worthy toilet paper organizer that'll turn your bathroom into a baaaaaaaaaathroom.

    Amazon

    Cause it's a sheep, geddit?!?!

    It hold seven to eight rolls and can stand on its own or be mounted on a wall.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    10. A handled pumice stone that over 2,800 reviewers swear by for getting rid of harsh hard water stains without harsh chemicals.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "We rented a home and the toilets were disgusting. Someone suggested a pumice stone and let me tell you, it was amazing! The picture above is after just five minutes with the stone. I'd tried bleach, every toilet bowl cleaner available, and countless hours of scrubbing to no avail, but this stone worked instantly! I'll be buying several more!! The stone does dissolve when scrubbing so you need a couple, but I was able to do almost two toilets that looked awful with one stone!" —CristaCross

    Get it from Amazon for $8.20.

    11. Or a handy toilet wand with disposable cleaning pads that'll make cleaning your latrine so easy and so much less gross, you'll actually DO IT for once, dammit.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Instead having one toilet brush that you always reuse to clean the crap (sometimes literally) out of your toilet and then store in your bathroom to be used another day (ick), this lets you use dispose of the cleaning pad after each use. Just press the button on the handle, and it'll eject the pad right into the garbage! Plus, each cleaning pad is already loaded with Clorox Cleaner, so it's the only product you'll need.

    Promising review: "This is the best toilet cleaner EVER! It contains a cleaning product, plus the sponges conform to every bend in the toilet and work easily in the rim. It didn’t require any elbow grease either! I promptly threw away my top-of-the-line brush with its fancy under-the-rim attachment that never worked. I am 100% all about this." —Kingfisher

    Get the wand, caddy, and six cleaning heads from Amazon for $8.88.

    12. A mirrored, golden shelving unit that looks like it belongs in the bathroom of a Disney princess or something. Like, Ariel could brush her hair with a dinglehopper and Jasmine could perfect her killer cat eye in this thing.

    PBteen

    It comes with the necessary mounting hardware.

    Get it from PBteen for $89.99.

    13. A magnificent Jeff Goldblum shower curtain, which just might make you want to (Jurassic) park yourself on the pot, staring at his mesmerizing face, and never leave.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. Or, if that's just a little too classy for you, an equally beautiful boho-patterned shower curtain fit for a prints-cess.

    Anthropologie

    Get it from Anthropologie for $88.

    15. A mini garbage can here to provide definitive proof of what you suspected all along — it is possible to be trash and still be cute.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    I mean, same.

    Promising review: "This trash can is adorable and looks amazing in our seaside-themed bathroom! Although small, it usually holds a week's worth of trash for my fiancé and I, with some room to spare." —NF

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in nine colors and styles).

    16. A sleek rolling cart that combines fashion and function and is a much more stylish alternative to having your countless products cluttering up your countertop.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing is my best friend that isn't alive. It's used as bathroom storage and perfectly allows us to keep extra toilet paper, first aid stuff, hairbrushes, and all sorts of stuff on it. We have two little fabric boxes that sit on the second shelf, and it fits them perfectly and they don't stick out one bit! We didn't buy them together, so I would think that any standard fabric storage bin would fit. It's holding up really well so far and I think we've had it almost a year at this point." —Anna Wright

    Get it from Amazon for $42.18+ (available in two colors).

    17. An LOL-worthy bathroom guest book that's actually really pretty, despite being filled with plenty of opportunities to indulge the love of potty humor you'll probably never outgrow.

    Amazon

    Promising review "My friends and I play games every Sunday and there are usually seven to nine people that show up. Everyone ends up using the bathroom at least once. The hostess mentioned that she'd seen a bathroom guest book at the bookstore and I thought it was such a cute idea, so I ordered it then and there. Two days later we got the book and set up a little bathroom basket with the book, a pen, and some Poo-Pourri. The book is very classic looking and blends in well with her bathroom. The pages are creatively amusing and I'm sure it's going to be a hit (and a hoot) with our group of friends." —さしみ

    Get it from Amazon for $13.21.

    18. An amazing grout-coating pen to make it look like you dropped a ton of dough having your bathroom re-grouted, when you really just spent under $15 and an afternoon with this brilliant tool.

    amazon.com

    The pics above are from a single coat!!!

    Promising review: "I bought this to clean up the pitted and cracked shower grout in my apartment. If I owned the place, I'd properly have had it re-grouted and sealed. But for the price, this did the trick and made the shower look sharp and clean. The paint dispenses easily and is pretty simple to apply evenly (and if you screw up, just use a sponge to wipe off where you colored outside the lines). It made it through its first cleaning test, when I sprayed with tile cleaner. For my situation, it worked." —Beez

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    19. An over-the-cabinet hair tool organizer to keep all your must-have styling supplies right at your fingertips, without turning your getting-ready space into a tangled mess of wires.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great design! My hairstyling tools are hidden when I'm not using them and are very organized so it's so easy to grab them whenever I need to. Before this, I'd bought something similar that didn't have the dividers. It hid my hair tools, but they were on top of each other, so I had to pull them all out when I wanted to use just one of them. That's not the case with this. I get out what I need to use in the morning before I go to work, while the others stay in place. I'm so glad I found this." —Amazon Customer

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

    20. A rubber flamingo who'll look down her beak at basic rubber ducks because she's so much more glam.

    Amazon

    I actually have this flamingo, and I can confirm she floats well and looks really pretty on the edge of my tub!

    Get it from Amazon for $19.19.

    21. A luxe emerald green countertop set that looks wayyyyy pricier than it is.

    Target

    Get the soap dispenser for $12.99, the toothbrush holder for $9.99, and the soap dish for $9.99, all from Target.

    22. And a bottle of Poo-Pourri —a possibly magical toilet spray that over 12,000 reviewers swear is simply poo-pendous — to keep your bathroom smelling its best, too.

    Amazon, youtube.com

    All you have to do is spritz the water a few times before you let 'er rip, and this magic poo potion will trap the scent. The bottle is even cute enough to leave out on top of your toilet!

    Poo-Pourri also comes in a handy travel size for when you gotta go on the go. Check out BuzzFeed's full write-up on it here.

    Promising review: "I have the standard size, a travel-size one, and an extra one to refill all my travel-size bottles. I keep one at home and one with me at all times. I was always too self-conscious about pooping in any public or private bathroom unless it was my own. I would hold it in no matter how long I'd have to wait. Eventually my body got so used to using the bathroom irregularly that I would sometimes go only twice a week. This bad habit put me in so much pain that it landed me in the hospital. When my friend heard about Poo-Pourri, he ordered it for me. It masks almost all of the scent. It has helped me regulate myself by allowing me to relax enough to go no matter where I am and who's around. Little by little I got comfortable enough to say, 'When you gotta go, you gotta go,' and put my health before worries about the stranger in the next stall." —AriQuinn

    Get a 2 oz. bottle for $9+ (available in 27 scents and in six other sizes).
