My bathroom is my palace, and tbh, yours should be too. My bathroom is a place where I spend a lot of time getting ready, taking long baths, and obviously, “using the bathroom,” whatever that actually means. I’ve invested time and money to make my bathroom super comfortable and super convenient so that when I’m in there I feel good—even if I don’t, you know?
Whether you’re looking to overhaul your bathroom so it’s a place where you feel like royalty or just want to find some simple upgrades you hadn’t thought about, here are 20 purchases everyone in your home will appreciate.
1. The ultimate toilet attachment
Bidets have long been ignored in the United States, and Tushy, a company that makes attachable versions you can easily put on any toilet, is trying to change that. At just $89, the most basic version of the Tushy is a great introduction to bidet life. It only takes 10 minutes to install and is non-electric, so there are no electrical cords to deal with. Once it’s all set up, simply use the nozzle adjuster and pressure control knob to find your perfect setting. Even better, installing a Tushy can help you reduce toilet paper usage by up to 80%, according to the company.
2. A toilet stool to help you go
The Squatty Potty has one simple mission: make it easier for you to go number two. Propping your feet up on the Squatty Potty helps unkink and relax the muscle that helps you go, meaning that the colon can quickly empty. The device is FDA-registered and recommended by doctors, according to the company, and has thousands of positive reviews from satisfied Amazon customers. Plus, one of our writers is obsessed with her Squatty Potty.
3. The best way to keep your toilet clean
If you’re going to invest in your toilet, also make an effort to keep it clean. If there’s anything 2020 has taught us, it’s don’t take Clorox for granted, especially its disposable ToiletWand system. With this handy device, you can clean the bowl with disposable scrubbing pads preloaded with a disinfecting mixture Clorox claims will kill up to 99.9% of viruses and bacteria. The long handle helps you keep your distance from the potty germs and when you’re done scrubbing simply press the button to dispose the pad into the trash and return the handle to the storage caddy.
4. A poo-masking spray with a really clever name
You’ve probably heard of Poo-Pourri by now—it’s everywhere. But if you haven’t had the pleasure, let me introduce you to a handy invention that helps you start masking the scent of your movement before you even go. It’s simple: spritz the toilet bowl before you go, do your business, and voila, a mixture of natural Essential Oils (and “other secret ingredients”) have you—and the room—covered. Available in a handful of scents and designs, there’s a Poo-Pourri perfect for every bathroom.
5. A new type of toilet paper you can feel good about
Everyone knows there’s good toilet paper and bad toilet paper. But besides the thickness or softness, there are still other things to consider when buying your next roll—like what it’s actually made from. Bamboo toilet paper is better for the environment and much more sustainable because bamboo is easier to grow and harvest than trees. No. 2 makes 3-ply bamboo toilet paper that’s “strong and silky” and “butt crumble free.” It’s clog and septic safe, comes in plastic-free packaging, and each roll is wrapped in fun, recycled paper you won’t mind leaving out.
6. A body scale that tells you everything
Gone are the days where stepping on a scale simply told you your weight. This high-tech scale from RENPHO connects to your phone via Bluetooth to tell you 13 different measurements, including weight, BMI, body fat percentage, metabolic age, and more simply by stepping on it. Record your measurements in RENPHO app or connect it to your favorite fitness tracker like Apple Health, Google Fit, or Fit Bit. One scale can also have unlimited users so everyone who shares the bathroom can take advantage of this handy tool.
7. An aromatherapy shower head that’s basically a Keurig
If you love k-cups to make your morning coffee, you’re sure to love this incredible new shower head that uses little capsules filled with essential oils to infuse your shower with relaxing scents. You simply slide in the pod, select how long you want the scent to diffuse (up to 10 minutes), and enjoy. A hand shower connects magnetically to the base, offering six different wash settings for the most customizable shower you’ve ever experienced.
8. Vanity lights so you can actually see how your makeup looks
A savior for folks with bad bathroom lighting, these LED lights can change any mirror into a Hollywood-worthy vanity. The 60 waterproof lights are easy to install by simply sticking to the mirror, and they can be dimmed to get the exact light you need to see yourself. With thousands of 5-star reviews on Amazon, the people agree this product will change your life for the better.
9. A bathroom rug that dries your feet instantly
There’s nothing I hate more than getting out of the shower and stepping onto cold tile. If you’re the same, it’s time to drop $25 bucks for this insanely absorbent microfiber shag bathroom mat set. The two mats—shower and toilet—are anti-slip and machine washable, and come with a lifetime warranty so you know you’ll be covered if they start to fall apart.
10. A spa-worthy robe to get ready in
Available in a handful of colors in men’s and women’s sizing, this New York Threads fleece bathrobe is as cozy as it is soft. Made with ultra-soft fleece, it’s machine washable and quick to dry so it’s perfect for putting on when you hop out of the shower. It also has two large front pockets, a belt tie, and a shawl collar for the ultimate combo of comfort and utility.
11. Towels that are so soft you’ll want to sleep in them
One of the best ways to upgrade your bathroom is by ditching your ratty, old towels for something more luxurious. Brooklinen, a company that makes popular items like sheets and comforters, also makes ridiculously soft plush towels. Available in three different sizes (ultra-light, classic, super-plush) and a handful of colors, these quick-drying towels will spruce up your bathroom and daily shower routine.
12. A cute over-toilet shelf to add storage to your bathroom
Some bathrooms are seriously low on space, and if that’s your situation why not add this practical and stylish shelf over your toilet. Made with kiln-dried mahogany wood, it has three shelves and mounts to the wall at the top for security. Install and organize your towels and washcloths, favorite beauty products, or simply decorate to make your bathroom feel brand new.
13. An affordable shower caddy that’s actually cute
Finding the right way to organize your shower can be tricky and expensive. Luckily, you can easily find a practical and attractive solution. This shower organizer has two adjustable, self-draining baskets on a stainless steel rod that can be hung from a shower head or curtain rod. The baskets are nice and big so they can store your biggest shampoo bottles for easy access and a cleaner shower.
14. An ultra-stylish trash can with a lid
Look, if you have a dog or you have company, your bathroom trash can should have a lid—otherwise, people or pets are going to inspect it. West Elm’s Yamazaki step trash can is the perfect solution; it’s stylish, practical, and comes in two different colors. The step-to-open lid means you don’t have to get down and dirty, and its compact size means it can fit in even the tiniest of NYC apartments.
15. A luxury towel warmer to really transform your bathroom into a chic space
Have you ever wrapped up in a warm towel after a spa treatment or nice bath? If you have, you’ll understand why this large bucket towel warmer needs a permanent spot in your bathroom ASAP. This large towel warmer can hold two oversized towels at once, but can also be used for pajamas, sheets or blankets, or your favorite robe. A built-in timer gives peace of mind that you won’t forget to turn it off, and since it’s portable you can easily use it in different rooms around your house.
16. Bath bombs for a relaxing soak
Bath bombs are the perfect upgrade to any bath, and nobody makes them better than Lush. No Lush bath bomb is created equal. Though all contain the perfect mix of essential oils and other natural ingredients great for your skin, some contain dried flowers or glitter, while others can have a rainbow fizz effect that’s basically like a magic show in the tub.
17. The silkiest body soap money can buy
Nécessaire is a brand that’s dedicated to luxurious, clean beauty—and while all of its products are sensational, its body wash is super luxe. Imagine if you could wash your skin in silk or velvet, and that’s what you get here. Available in three scents (sandalwood, bergamot, and eucalyptus), these soaps provide the necessary daily vitamins your skin needs while providing an aromatherapy-like sensation to your shower.
18. The world’s best hairdryer
Another place to seriously up your bathroom game—and save a lot of time—is by upgrading your blow dryer. Dyson is one of the world’s leading innovators in air technology, so it makes sense that they also have a near-perfect hairdryer. It has a v9 motor and actively works to protect against heat damage and give your hair a healthy shine and glow. It’s also acoustically tuned so you can say goodbye to the annoying sounds of a regular ole’ hairdryer.
19. A heated razor for the perfect shave
I’ve waxed poetic about GilletteLabs’ luxurious heated razor before. For a lot of people who shave their face, investing in a top-quality razor has never been top of mind, but that needs to change. This luxurious razor heats up near-instantly to provide what feels like a hot-towel experience every single time you shave. The razor blades provide a very close shave and the “Flexdisc technology,” makes it easy to get those hard-to-reach places like under the ear and along the jaw-line.
20. A bathtub tray so you can have a moment to yourself in the tub
This bamboo bathtub desk takes soaking to the next level. Fill up the tub, add some bubble bath, and grab this handy tray to hold a glass of wine, your iPhone to finally catch up on The Queen, or read a book with one of the tray’s three different reading angles. The multiple slots and panels on the tray make it easy to securely bring your favorite relaxing items—like a nice scented candle—to the tub with you. And if you have a larger tub, don’t fret, the sides extend to fit your needs.
