Bathroom accessories to make your lavatory the best space in your house

It takes more than a padded toilet seat cover and novelty shower curtain to level up your lavatory.

Make the bathroom the room in your house you are most proud of. When giving a house guest a tour of your humble abode, make the commode the first stop. Turn your outhouse into the inhouse.

Easy to install. Amazon


The Tushy requires no electricity or plumbing to supply a steady, adjustable flow of cool or warm water. The bidet comes with everything you need for installation and connects directly to the water pipes under your sink. There are temperature, angle, and pressure knobs to give you complete control.

Get rid of the smells. Amazon


Activated charcoal sucks in odors and acts as a room deodorizer. The air purifying bags—which can last up to two years—prevent mildew and bacteria from growing by removing moisture from the air. This bag can work up to 90 feet away.

Sound footing when you exit. Amazon


This 25 x 18-inch elevated mat is made of natural bamboo, which helps it dry out more efficiently than a scummy rug or rubbery mat. It feels a lot better than stepping out onto a cold, slippery floor.

The perfect jukebox. Amazon


The Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 provides a beefy 360-degree sound with deep bass tones. This new model includes a single magic button that allows you to play, pause, skip and control any streamed music from the Bluetooth speaker. What’s more, with the PartyUp app, you can connect up to 150 UE speakers. I don’t know who would need that many speakers, but I’d love to be at that party. It’s also waterproof—up to one meter of water for 30 minutes—and shockproof, making it a good option for camping or a trip to the beach. The UE BOOM 3 holds a 15-hour charge. There are four models to choose from: Lagoon Blue, Night Black, Sunset Red, and Ultraviolet Purple.

An easy place to throw your dirty clothes. Amazon


To save space, hang your hamper on the back of your bathroom door. The Urban Mom Laundry Nook attaches with stainless steel hooks, is available in five colors, and the cotton canvas material is machine washable, so it won’t be haunted with lingering smells from your gnarly gym clothes

For the person who loves a long soak. Amazon


Pour yourself a glass of wine, prop up your phone or tablet, and enjoy some hand-free bathtub activity. This caddy is made of a mold- and bacteria-resistant waterproof bamboo and has silicone grips on the bottom. It’s 29.5 inches wide with sides that can extend it up to 43 inches.

Detects you as you approach. Amazon


The cordless, rechargeable simplehuman Sensor Mirror Pro holds a charge for up to five weeks. The eight-inch, 5x magnification mirror has a built-in sensor that detects you as you approach and brags LED lights to imitate natural sunlight. Its touch-sensitive brightness control lets you change up the brightness. The LEDs supposedly last up to 40,000 hours.

Everything you’ll need to stay fresh-faced. Amazon


After releasing our shaving gear guide last year, I purchased a Bevel Shave System Starter Kit. It includes a razor, five blades, a badger-hair brush, priming oil, shaving cream, and a restoring balm. The Bevel safety razor is a brass-weighted, double-edge razor designed to prevent irritation and razor bumps. The oil protects against nicks and cuts. The shaving cream lathers, hydrates, and moisturize. The restoring balm soothes your skin post-shave.

Keep your pipes clear. Amazon


Stuff falls down the drain, but the FlexiSnake Drain Millipede can get them out. The reusable, 18-inch tool has over 4000 loop micro-hooks that grabs hair and other gunk out of the drain.

Make your bathroom feel like a spa or a really classy barbershop. Amazon


This warmer can bring 12 pre-soaked, washcloth-sized towels up to a pleasant 150-160 degrees. The walls of the machine are lined with a heating element—it does not use warming bulbs—that keeps the temperature consistent.

Enough with terrible-sounding waterproof options. Amazon


This KOHLER Moxie shower head comes with a built-in speaker that syncs to your device from up to 32 feet away. The shower head has a silicone spray face, 60 nozzles and comes in two models—a 1.75 gallons per minute or a 2.5 gallons per minute—to help reduce water usage. Listen to the morning news or bop your head to your favorite jams while you pump yourself up for work or a date. The wireless speaker can be removed for charging purposes and for use outside of the shower.

Helps keep the bathroom clean. Amazon


Showers get gross. Keep a Buddy Squeegee nearby to help remove the grime from your walls and mirrors. The 10.5-inch wide squeegee has a streak-free rubber blade and suction cup for wall storage.

You won’t even know there are rolls in there. Amazon


The white YAMAZAKI toilet paper stocker is made of metal, holds 12 rolls of toilet paper, and has a flat top to place items like as candles or decorative plants.
