Many people prefer the shower to the bathtub. It takes less time to take a shower and it makes you more dynamic. It’s important for the water to have the perfect temperature and to be friendly with your body. It’s why rain shower heads are a very nice idea. The water falls at 90 degrees, just like the rain. It gives you a nice and pleasant feeling and it’s also relaxing.

2. Have spa robes.

What people appreciate about hotel rooms and spas is that they offer those nice robes in which you feel so comfortable and cozy. So why couldn’t you have those at home? Space robes should be a must-have in the bathroom. Before you buy them, pay attention to the material. You should try to find robes that are made of cotton or cotton velour and terry which has a soft look just like the velvet.

3. Heated towel racks.

Heated towel racks are a simple and very nice addition to any bathroom. They are not expensive and they are also very practical and useful. They allow your towels to quickly dry out and they don’t retain humidity so they don’t get an ugly smell either. Moreover, it’s very pleasant to have a warm towel when you get out of shower.

4. Ottomans and storage baskets.

But you can always add storage baskets if you feel like you need them.

Having a mirror is imperative for the bathroom. But the type of mirror you choose is a personal decision. However, we strongly encourage you to opt for a full-length mirror if you have the space. It allows you to see yourself and to analyze your body and, if you don’t have a wall for it, you can just place it behind the door.
