5 Products That Will Instantly Makeover Your Bathroom

The Home Depot - Sponsored Content

The bathroom is a highly underrated cornerstone of every home. Much like the bedroom, it’s the place where you start and end your day; pulling yourself together for a (hopefully) positive day and then removing any remnants of the outside world before a (hopefully) good night’s sleep. Usually the bathroom is an afterthought when it comes to decorating, but really it should be highly considered in order to improve your mood during those critical hours. If the towels are mismatched, the tissue box left uncovered, and little cotton balls scattered in all the wrong places, chances are you resent spending any time in your bathroom. Not to mention, a well-appointed bathroom is important for the overall vibe of your home. When company is over, this is the space where they’ll likely spend a little more time poking around and, well, judging you in privacy. (We’ve all done it!) So why not devote some time and budget to sprucing up your bathroom? Fortunately, you can get away with just these five essentials from a one-stop shopping trip to The Home Depot.

A Bath Mat

Tactility is such an important factor in loving a space, and nothing is worse than stepping on a perpetually damp bath mat that has been collecting all sorts of debris in its fibers. Our vote for a bath mat that physically feels cleaner and gives off a nice spa-like vibe is one made of teak. Not only will it absorb water quickly without that unpleasant dampness but the natural wood adds warmth and a kind of zen quality to any bathroom. SHOP NOW: Natural teak shower mat by ARB Teak & Specialties, $83.99, homedepot.com.

Towels

Perhaps the most impactful update for changing the look of your bathroom is the towel set. (Are we being dramatic?) Since they cover up a good amount of the wall and you use them every day, you should really really love your towels. Anyone can stick to solids ( charcoal is a great neutral that won't show stains), but why not douse your bathroom in exciting color and pattern like these dotted ones by the Company Store? SHOP NOW: Spectrum towel collection by The Company Store, from $20, homedepot.com.

A Wastebasket

Surely this is the last thing you think about when outfitting your bathroom because, I mean, can you even see it? The answer: YES! You always notice a wastebasket because there is almost always something to throw away. It also provides a good opportunity to introduce new textures or a pop of color to the space. We love the Kraftware line of vibrant and natural wastebaskets. SHOP NOW: Fun colors wastebasket in red by Kraftware, $23.99, homedepot.com. SHOP NOW: Natural cork wastebasket by Kraftware, $28.12, homedepot.com.

Decorative Storage

It’s a universal truth that there is never enough storage space when it comes to small apartment bathrooms. But one of the surest ways to feel confident about your bath scheme is to hide all those products and tools that make it look so cluttered. Sacrifice some floor space for a super useful freestanding storage cabinet and you won't regret it. The extra shelves also allow for more exciting decor like plants (a definite must in the bathroom!) and high-design objet. SHOP NOW: Bathroom linen tower by Glacier Bay, $34.98, homedepot.com. SHOP NOW: Golden Pothos plant by Costa Farms, $17.57, homedepot.com. SHOP NOW: Marble bowl on pedestal by Creative Home, $43.23, homedepot.com.

Coordinated Accessories

Speaking of covering things up, there are certain things that really do need a decorative façade. While some liquid soap packaging is nice enough to display, the generic packaging on cotton goods (balls, swabs, and tissue), is definitely not. Your bathroom will feel so much more intentional with a cohesive set of accessories for these things, like this luxurious travertine set. SHOP NOW: Tissue box cover in travertine by Roselli Trading Company, $47.99, homedepot.com. SHOP NOW: Roman spa tumbler by Roselli Trading Company, $32.99, homedepot.com.
