Why You Need These Bathroom Essentials

1. Shower Curtain and Liner 

Look for a shower curtain and liner that are easy to clean and maintain. Options that are machine washable or wipe clean with a damp cloth are ideal. Measure the length and width of your shower before purchasing to ensure a proper fit.

2. Hand Soap Dispenser

The different types of dispensers are pump dispensers, touchless dispensers, and automatic dispensers. Look for one with a smooth and easy-to-use dispensing mechanism.

3. Mirror

Consider the size of your bathroom and other elements in the room when choosing the size and shape of your mirror. A large, rectangular mirror can create a sleek and modern look, while a circular mirror can add a softer, more traditional touch.

4. First Aid Kit

You and your family be prepared for any minor injuries that may occur at home. A good first-aid kit should include items like bandages, gauze pads, adhesive tape, antiseptic wipes, tweezers, scissors, and pain relievers. It's also important to choose a kit that is easy to use and store, with clear instructions on how to use each item.

5. Wastebasket

Wastebaskets come in a variety of materials, including plastic, metal, and wicker. Consider the design aesthetic of your bathroom and the other finishes in the room when choosing a material.

6. Natural Hand Soap

A hand soap should not just be used to smell nice and clean, it’s best made with natural ingredients, too! Essential oils, plant extracts, and organic ingredients can clean without the harsh chemicals that dry up the skin.

7. Bath towels, hand towels, washcloths (2 each)

The right set of towels can say a lot about your bathing experience. Choose a material with high-quality stitching, hemming, and finishing. Neutral tones like white, beige, and gray are classic choices that can easily coordinate with other decor elements. 

8. Non-skid bath mat

Look for a bath mat made from a non-slip material, such as rubber or silicone. These materials have a natural grip that helps keep the mat in place, even when it gets wet.

9. Toothbrush holder

It’s a practical accessory that prevents you from just having your toothbrush laying around. Consider the hygiene of the toothbrush holder and whether it has features that promote cleanliness, such as ventilation holes or a removable bottom for easy cleaning.

10. Over-the-door and/or wall hooks

Look for hooks made from durable and corrosion-resistant materials, such as stainless steel or plastic. Avoid materials that may rust or deteriorate over time.

11. Personal care items

Don’t forget the personal essentials like toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, shampooconditioner, and face wash. You may also need cotton balls, dental floss, nail clippers, razors, and shaving cream.

12. Toilet paper storage

Look for storage options that match the overall style and design aesthetic of your bathroom. There are a variety of styles available, including freestanding racks, wall-mounted holders, and baskets.

13. Toilet brush & container

Look for a toilet brush with a shape and bristles that can effectively clean under the rim and other hard-to-reach areas of the toilet bowl. 

14. Plunger (hidden out of sight)

There are two main types of plungers - cup plungers and flange plungers. Cup plungers are best for sinks and flat surfaces, while flange plungers are designed for use in toilets.

15. Green cleaning supplies / Bathroom cleaning supplies

Look for products that are made from natural and non-toxic ingredients. Add bathroom cleaning supplies like an all-purpose cleaner, disinfecting surface cleaner, glass cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, microfiber brush, and scrubbing brush.
