5 Super Chic Bathroom Accessories
When it comes to shopping for home decor, let’s face it — the bathroom is the one room in the home that seems to fall through the cracks. You might be fine with just a hodgepodge of bathroom accessories at first, but you will quickly find that there are a number of ways to make your bathroom a stylish sanctuary, just like the rest of your home. Shop the edit below to get your sanctuary started today.
West Elm Woven Seagrass Hampers
There’s a debate about where hampers even go in the first place. Some have it in their bedroom, typically hidden inside their closet, but others have it on display in the bathroom, which makes so much sense. The dirty clothes receptacle is then right there to catch whatever you take off before hopping in the shower, making it super convenient for getting ready.
When you’re the latter person, however, and you share a bathroom or your bathroom doubles as the guest bathroom, it is important that the thing that holds your dirty gym socks doesn’t look like a dirty gym sock too. These hand-woven baskets are the perfect upgrade to a drawstring laundry bag or flimsy plastic hamper. The structure and geometric design give it a clean look. Finishing touches like the cloth lining and the lid are perfect for making this hamper presentable in shared spaces — not to mention keeping those aforementioned gym socks hidden.
The West Elm Woven Seagrass Hampers are on sale now starting at $79.
Urban Outfitters Plymouth Sliding Storage Mirror
According to Google Patents, Adrian St Clair Garman invented the medicine cabinet in 1916, and the concept was pure genius for the time. It was the original small space storage hack before everyone was obsessed with minimalism, downsizing, and tiny homes. As great as the concept was and still is, everything needs an upgrade after 100 years, and this one takes on the perfect modern twist.
Many bathrooms come with unframed, mirrored front medicine cabinets with plastic or glass shelves behind the secret door. This sleek design features a sliding mirrored front framed in matte black instead of a traditional door-style cabinet. The door slides back to reveal three mango wood shelves for the perfect contrast, and adds a natural element to the bathroom. And don’t worry — these large shelves can fit all your cosmetic needs small and large.

Anthropologie Tasseled Arden Shower Curtain
The fun thing about shower curtains is that they are easily changed and can instantly transform your entire bathroom. While you might not be swapping out tile or sink hardware on a seasonal basis, the option is there with shower curtains and the possibilities are endless.
If you are looking for one with a little bit of staying power, this neutral version can work year round. The textured cloth curtain in ivory has just a hint of color with its grey trim and orange tassels. Subtle but fun, the bright and cheery vibe of the curtain will hopefully bring the same energy to your morning. All it needs is a plastic curtain to go behind it for water protection and you’re all set. More color can be added in with a bathmat and other sink accessories.
The Anthropologie Tasseled Arden Shower Curtain is on sale now for $118.
The Twillery Co. Eshleman Bamboo Bathtub Caddy
Hot take: Your bathroom can be your home’s primary source for relaxation. While it might not be your bedroom or favorite reading nook, the bathroom is the perfect space for unwinding. It’s where you can take care of your body and implement your multi-step skincare routine, instantly taking it from a room to do your business into a self-care sanctuary. Shower-only bathrooms have a harder time getting this distinction, but if you’re lucky enough to have a tub, your bathroom is already on its way to becoming a haven. And nothing helps a bathtub on that journey quite like a bathtub caddy.
The bamboo material is perfect for your at-home spa, giving off zen vibes. Lay this across the tub before you take a bath to double the relaxing experience. It features a groove for your phone, two built-in holders for a wine glass and water cup, and two reclining options to hold your tablet or book. Your self-care Sunday can now commence.

Serena & Lily Teak Ladder
Over-the-door storage is out and this ladder is so in. Trying to find proper storage for your towel in the bathroom can prove a little tricky, but this nails it. Not only will it add a chic accessory to your bathroom, but the towels will hang perfectly over the rungs and it will double as both a functional and aesthetically-pleasing piece.
