5 Bathroom Essentials for the Contemporary Man

5 Bathroom Essentials for the Contemporary Man

Blog Post Template

 

Having a fully functional bathroom is not as easy as you would think.  It takes some careful consideration, and if you intend on keeping it tidy, some space planning.  As a designer who offers turn-key services, I thought it would be helpful to share a few of the items my years of experience say are absolutely essential for the bachelor pad bathroom.

1. Good Towels

 

Who wants to come home after a long day, have a relaxing, hot shower, and then dry off with a wimpy, threadbare towel?  No one!  You work hard, so invest in some plush towels of many sizes.  Large bath towels for after a shower, face towels for washing your face, and wash cloths for smaller washing purposes.  You will feel so fabulous using a plush towel after ditching your old one, that you will think you are just leaving the day spa.

2. A Bathroom Tray

 

The key to a tidy bathroom counter?  A bathroom tray.  You know how all of your miscellaneous toiletries pile up all over?  (Its ok to admit as it happens to the best of us).  Well, a bathroom tray is the answer to small item clutter.  For visual purposes, store unsightly supplies in a drawer or cabinet, and then place your everyday essentials in the tray.  For extra credit, purchase a few small glass apothecary containers and organize your essentials in them and then set them on the tray, as well.  This way, everything will be easily accessible, and look tidy on your counter.

3. A Scented Candle

 

I think a candle is pretty self explanatory.  Not only will it fill your restroom with a lovely aroma, but it will also be a relaxing addition to your space.  There is nothing like the soft glow of a candle to help you unwind.

4. A Laundry Basket

 

This is such an easy piece to add to your bathroom, but many people overlook it: the laundry basket.  Where are you putting your dirty clothing right before you hop in the shower?  The floor?  Unless you pick up after yourself everyday, this will leave an unsightly mess in no time.  Opt for a nice laundry basket, and then when it is full, you will know its time to do laundry.  It kills two birds with one stone… removes dirty laundry from your floor, and indicates when its time to run the wash.  Win, win!

5. A Bathmat

 

Stepping onto a cold service with wet feet after a steamy shower is a shock to the system.  Purchase a bathmat to absorb the water running off your body and to protect your feet from such a cold surface.  This will add a luxurious feel to your bathing process and prevent water from getting all over the place.
