When it comes to decorating your home, there is always that one room that seems to get neglected in the process. Often times, that room happens to be the bathroom. You might be thinking, “why should I spend time decorating the bathroom? It’s a place of ‘business.’ Get in, get out, and get on with your day.” While in some cases, that is true, others might suggest that the bathroom should receive the most interior design attention. In a living room, conversation and television can provide distractions from its overall ambiance. In the kitchen and dining area, the food controls the room. In the bedroom, sleep takes up most of the time. On the other hand, the bathroom is a place of solitude. Whether you’re taking a shower or handling your “business,” a person is left to their own thoughts and observations. Keep that in mind, and be sure to pick up these overlooked bathroom items that everyone needs in their home.

Cleaning Supplies

While almost everyone has a plunger in their bathroom in case of any emergencies, far too many people forget to purchase other maintenance supplies that are necessary for keeping it clean. One of the most important items in a bathroom is a toilet brush, because let’s face it, no one likes using a dirty toilet. Come on guys, this is a frat house.

Shower Mat

Shower mats may be the most overlooked bathroom accessory there is. No one likes slipping and sliding all around the tub in the morning, so make life easier proving yourself with a little traction.

Hand Towels

Now, this may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how often people neglect to hang a hand towel in their bathroom. First off, it’s important because no one wants people using their bath towel to dry off their hands. That’s gross. You wipe your clean body and face with that towel. So, not only is it important to provide a hand towel, but it’s essential to hang it in a prominent and noticeable spot.

Air Freshener

Simply put, no one wants to bask in your natural scents. And frankly, your guests don’t want to feel awkward after using the bathroom, so provide them with an air freshener, so they can save everyone from an unpleasant situation.

Floor Mat

A floor mat may also seem like a no-brainer, but it is important to consider what kind of mat you are placing down. Your fuzzy floor mat not only slips and slides all over the floor, but it also absorbs water, possibly creating a pungent smell over time. It might be worth a few extra bucks to purchase a waterproof bamboo mat or something of that nature.
