15 Bathroom Essentials for Your First Home.

Moving into your first home? While you’re too caught up choosing the perfect couch, coffee table, or curtain, it can be so easy to forget the small details that complete your home and make it comfortable to live in. This applies particularly to the essentials found in your bathroom.

Considering how often you use the bathroom, stocking it with everything you need, from hygiene products to cleaning products, should be on top of your to-do list after moving to your new place. That said, here is a list of all the bathroom essentials you should have in your new bathroom.

 1. Toiletries are products or supplies that you use for cleaning or grooming yourself. This includes dental hygiene products, like a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash. Bath products, like soap, shampoo, and shower gel, are also part of the list. Shaving cream, aftershave, cologne, makeup, and deodorant make up your grooming kit.

2. A shower curtain should be necessary if you don’t have glass doors to separate the shower area. It will keep water from getting all over the bathroom while you take a bath. It also gives you more privacy.

3. Get a shower caddy to organize all the bathing products you need. As the name suggests, you can hang it on the showerhead so your soap, shampoo, and bathing supplies are within easy reach while you shower.

4. Avoid bathroom accidents with a nonslip bath mat. Water makes bathroom floors, especially those made of natural and ceramic tiles, slippery; add soap or shampoo suds, and you may have a disaster waiting to happen. A nonslip bath mat keeps you safe and steady on your feet.

5. A toothbrush holder is necessary to keep your toothbrush of the dirty sink. Get a UV light antibacterial toothbrush holder to sterilize your toothbrush every after use.

6. A magnifying mirror will make it easier for you to grooming rituals that require absolute focus and delicacy, like applying makeup, plucking eyebrows, and shaving. You can also take a closer look at your skin, spot growing pimples, and treat them before they grow any bigger.

7. Organizers will keep your sink, countertop, and cabinets clutter-free when you start accumulating stuff. Plus, they will help keep your bathroom organized and make your essentials accessible and easy to find.

8. Wicker baskets are aesthetically pleasing, but more than that, they are excellent for storing and organizing bath towels, hand towels, toilet paper, laundry, and other bathroom essentials.

9. A trash can should always be in your bathroom and other parts of your home. It will help keep your clean, clutter-free, and safe by keeping you from littering inside your home.

10. A toilet brush is essential to ensure that your toilet is spotlessly clean all the time. Instead of the usual plastic toilet brush, get a zero-waste brush, made from wood, ceramic, and pig bristles. That’s sure to be 100 percent plastic-free and recyclable.

11. Clogs happen all the time, so you need a plunger ready in your bathroom. There are different types of plungers. For the sink clogs, you need a common sink plunger, but for toilet clogs, an accordion plunger or toilet flange plunger will work better.

12. Keep a squeegee around to wipe of excess moisture on your glass shower doors, mirror, and other surfaces. Excess moisture is one of the biggest banes of homeowners. It can cause molding, leave watermarks, and damage appliances, fixtures, and furniture.

13. Keep clogs away using macerating pump for your bathroom. A high-power macerating pump breaks down wastewater and expels great pressure to push waste through the pipes toward the sewage line then to the septic tank. This prevents clogs and ensures smoother drainage.

14. Go green with nontoxic and eco-friendly bathroom cleaners. They can erase the toughest stains without harming your health, damaging your bathroom, and hurting the environment.

15. Keep the stink under wraps using reed diffusers or scent sticks and safe and fragrant essential oils. With these, your bathroom can smell like relaxing lavender, fresh peppermint, warm sandalwood, or energizing lemon. And you’ll never have to pinch your nose in your bathroom again.

Final Word
Your home isn’t complete without the essentials for your daily routine and everyday tasks around the house. As one of the most frequently used facilities in the home, your bathroom should have a complete stock of the products and tools you need for bathing, grooming, and cleaning. It will make your life so much easier (and less frustrating) if you have all these things prepared.
