assorted bathroom accents

Whether you’re a shower or bath person or a sheet-mask-every-day person, chances are you spend a lot of time in your bathroom. While we’ve rounded up the best accents for your apartmentbedroom, and kitchen elsewhere, here we’ve dug through Amazon to find the best bathroom-décor ideas. Below, you’ll find spruced-up versions of necessities and spa-like indulgences to give your grooming routine, whatever it may be, a tad more ambiance.

Umbra Casa Tissue Box Cover

Recycle those too-bright Kleenex boxes: your bathroom tissues deserve a well-designed home.

Cat Toilet Brush

When was the last time you could call your toilet-bowl cleaner cute?

Euthymol Original Toothpaste

Forget Marvis! This is the best fancy European toothpaste, which one Strategist writer describes as tasting “like if Fernet Branca were spiked with the most delicate whisper of spearmint.”

Boy Smells Cedar Stack Candle

A status-y candle that’s still beloved by candle obsessives, in a scent that’ll make your bathroom smell like a lovely forest.

SODUKU Floating Shelves

These damp-and-heat-resistant floating shelves would be a serious upgrade from over-stuffed plastic caddies. Use them for face towels, toothbrushes, diffusers, plants and other toiletries.

Joseph Joseph Toothbrush Holder

The larger compartments make this holder ideal for storing electric toothbrushes.

Sumi Haigou Charcoal Soap

Charcoal that’s not in your juice or your toothbrush.

Umbra Touch Molded Soap Pump

We’ve written about our love for this cute, sustainable little soap dispenser before.

Japanese Binchotan Scrub Towels

More charcoal, this time in a towel. Beauty enthusiasts swear by the powers of exfoliating with charcoal towels.

Bamboo is one of the few indoor plants that will do just fine in a humid and low-light environment like a bathroom.

Brabantia Step Trash Can, 1.3 Gallons

This small white trash can from Brabantia is a sophisticated upgrade from boring stainless steel.

Swap the view of your backyard or an airshaft for this birch forest.

Mind Reader Bamboo Bathtub Tray

This nice-looking bamboo tray allows you to easily bring your books, magazines, hairbrush (and yes, wine) into the tub with you.

Gobam Bamboo Bath Mat

Strategist editors love a bamboo bathmat too, not only because it seems like something you’d see at a fancy spa, but also because it means you will never wash a grimy bathroom rug again.

MelonBoat Cotton Swab Holder

Dump the ratty cardboard box and put your Q-tips on display.

SONGMICS Bamboo Shower Seat and Shelf

More of our favorite bamboo, this time as a side table to place just outside a shower curtain that doubles as storage thanks to its handy bottom shelf.

Yamazaki Home Tower Leaning Ladder Rack

In the right bathroom, this space-saving wall ladder (a Strategist favorite) would be a more stylish (and more ventilated) way to hang towels, or clothes while you shower.

LANGYASHAN Canvas Storage Bin

Use the basket as a hamper or storage for linens — the handy straps make it easy to tote.

Pendleton Jacquard Hand Towel

Portland-based Pendleton first wove this pattern in the 1920s, in honor Chief Joseph, who led the Nez Pearce tribe to Oregon.

Radius Scuba Toothbrushes 3 Pack

As fun as these are to look at, they’re even more fun to use, with their giant bristle heads and comfy rubber grips.

Gill Tube Wringer

Squeeze out every last drop of that toothpaste or hand cream in style.

Green Toys Yellow and Blue Submarine

A submarine bath toy with a spinning rear propeller for the young (and young at heart).

Use this to keep all your extra rolls of toilet paper on hand but out of sight. It also doubles as a small freestanding shelf.

Tooletries Silicone Waterproof Shower Organizer

Stick this small self-adhesive silicone organizer to the wall of your shower to store small items like your razor and toothbrush. The company also makes a small matching mirror to stick above it.

Muji Porcelain Toothbrush Stand

Sleeker than your average brush holder. Plus, its design keeps residue from yucking up the base.

Yamazaki Home Silicone Soap Tray, Black

A minimalist and (somewhat ironically) easy-to-clean soap tray.

Ausaye Color Changing Mushroom Night Light

According to one of our editors who keeps this color-changing nightlight in his bathroom, “for those who can rarely go a full sleep cycle without a trip to the bathroom, it may be the most life-altering mushroom you can legally buy.”
