The bathroom is an area that's often overlooked when it comes to registries. We go straight for the crazy cool new espresso machine, the bar cart filled with fun drink accessories, or the over-the-top techy vacuum that promises to put an end to all our cleaning woes. But the bathroom is one of the most important rooms in the house (especially if you love long baths or pampering yourself with DIY face masks or essential oil blends).
Self care aside, the bathroom is also ground control for getting ready in the morning and coming down from a long day. In order for everything to run smoothly, you'll want to make sure your gear is organized and easily accessible. This means good storage options are key—and why not make them pretty while you're at it!?
Your bathroom is also going to be a spot that guests are 100 percent sure to visit when they're over for drinks or dinner. Turn it into a room that will impress with nicely scented elements and some little unexpected items like a flower in a bud vase or a small plant in the window. Make sure that they have everything they might need, from tissues to hand lotion, all on hand and easy to reach.
From bottles to baskets, here are 11 (shoppable!) items that will make your bathroom feel extra special.
