    Price: $23.99 (originally $32.93)

    Promising review: "Chose the gray and the color could not be more perfect to match my son’s bathroom.

    Price: $76.99 (originally $84.99)

    Promising review: "I bought two of these memory foam bath rugs for my two bathrooms as I was getting tired of my cloth bath rug getting too wet. So far, I have used one of the memory foam bath rugs and I really like how it adheres to the floor, has a bit of a sponge feeling under one's feet and absorbs the wetness from exiting the shower. The size is bigger than I thought it would be, which is fine, and I like the decorative pattern. Not too much and not too little. The rug itself is sturdy and well made. I ordered the teal bath rugs as I wanted it to accent my brown and teal bathrooms. So far so good! Good price for this item as well."  —Ernie

    Price: $21.70 (originally $26.24)

    8. A pebbled nonslip shower mat that almost looks like you're bathing over a patch of blue-hued stones, with suction cups for maximum resistance so they stay in place.

    A blue-tinted case holder with five toothbrushes and a space for toothpaste attached

    Promising review: "I love my toothbrush and toothpaste holder. It keeps the toothbrushes clean and I save more toothpaste because everyone pushes it from the bottom not the middle. It's more sanitary now."  —Carlene

    Price: $24.78 (originally $29)

    11. A touchless soap dispenser with a durable transparent container, so you can see your favorite liquid soap with every wave of your hand. Because everyone has their own suds style, this dispenser comes with five dispensing intensities according to your comfort level.

    A metallic contraption that hangs over the side of the shower with shelving for soap and shampoo

    Promising review: "Very happy with this purchase. The shelves are adjustable and sturdy. There are suction cups to keep the bottom in place. I have huge gallon shampoo and conditioner pump bottles on there and use them with no issues. I had a standing shelf before that rusted and stained my tile shower floor. This unit is so much better with space and hooks for everything. Highly recommend."  —Erin

    Price: $60.54

    14. A freestanding bath caddy for long, luxurious bubble baths or time in the bathtub, when you can enjoy more than just sudsing up your, drink wine, or light some candles.

The bath caddy is the perfect compliment to both my bathtub and bathroom. The gray color works perfectly with my decor; the various slots for my iPad, iPhone, champagne glass, candle, soap, sponge, etc., make it both practical for me and luxurious! I bought a white caddy for my mom and, she too, loves hers. Instead of an iPad, she put a magazine into that slot holder. Highly, highly recommend!"  —Richard

    A tall white cabinet with three shelves in a yellow bathroom

    Promising review: "We needed narrow storage with lots of shelfs for bathroom and we found exactly what we were looking. Measurement and color were also perfect for our recently renovated bathroom. Shelves can be adjusted and the closed bottom shelf was perfect since it hides a plunger, toilet brush with cup, cleaning solutions, and toilet paper. We are happy with the purchase!"  —Carolyn Yin

    Price: $55.99 (originally $79.95)

    A white contoured bath pillow in a sudsy bathtub filled with candles

    Promising review: "I ordered this pillow for a freestanding tub because it has suction cups and will stay in place. It is very comfortable because your shoulders rest on the pillow. It has a hook built into it that I don’t need for my indoor tub, but doesn’t detract for my use. I wanted the suction cup feature, but was concerned that they would make the pillow less comfortable for use. The six suction cups hold it in place nicely, and you don’t feel them through the cushion. I would recommend this product."  —Beth

    Price: $35.95 (originally $37.99)

    23. A set of four metal bathtub soap dishes to hold everything from loofas, cotton swabs, and yes, even soap, that are cute enough to make you wish you could shrink yourself down and bathe in them yourself.

    Price: $28.01 (originally $47.99)
