5 Must-Have Accessories For Every Bathroom
Do you have a safe place to store a hot curling iron or a watertight spot for your toothbrush? Here are 5 great home accessories for bathrooms that will make everything easier when you're getting ready for your day.
Hot Accessories Organizer
If you've got hair beyond a couple of inches, there's a good chance you've got a curling iron, a blow dryer, or a flatiron (or all three). This means you've got hot appliances and electrical wires in the wettest place of your home — the bathroom. For both safety and organizational reasons, it's a good idea to have a place to store your hot appliances where they're both accessible and safely out of the way of water or small children. We love the various options for appliance stands and style stations that keep your hot accessories off the floor and away from the faucet. Every bathroom needs one of these!
Proper Toothbrush Holder
You may have heard that leaving your toothbrush in a holder on the counter is a great way to attract soap and dirty water from the faucet, and toilet spray whenever you flush the commode. To avoid these hazards, it's a good idea to store your toothbrush with the bristles covered. However, without ventilation, you're creating the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. Try a toothbrush holder that keeps the bristles covered, but without an airtight seal, and store it inside the medicine cabinet away from the toilet rather than on your sink!
Second Shower Rod
Need more space for your shower accessories? Create unlimited space for shampoo, soap, loofahs, and more by adding a second shower rod to the back of the shower. Grab a few S-hooks or spare shower curtain hooks and hang cheap plastic baskets for storing everything you need in the shower. This is a great way to keep bottles and metal shaving cream canisters from leaving rust or soap scum rings on the tub.
Excess Toilet Paper Holder
No matter what, this is one of the most useful accessories in any bathroom. Ever been a guest and only noticed the empty roll after using the restroom? Never get stuck toilet-paper-less in your own home, and never make your guests suffer that embarrassing fate. Keep a toilet paper tower right next to the toilet to avoid any TP humiliation for all household member and guests!
Whether you choose to stick a magnetic strip to the side of your medicine cabinet or you decorate and frame a magnetic sheet, every bathroom should utilize magnetic strips. This essential accessory keeps all metal objects organized. Never lose bobby pins, tweezers, or other small metal objects again!
