Now that you’ve successfully graduated college, secured a job and you’re settling into your first apartment, it’s time to start making the right choices around the house to guarantee yourself a healthy, productive lifestyle.
With independence, comes responsibilities. Since you’re bound to be spending a lot of time in there, your bathroom needs to be a convenient and accessible space for you to be able to relax and unwind.
Granted, you probably don’t have a huge budget at your disposal. In that spirit, we’ve compiled a list of 8 absolute household essentials that will complete your bathroom while you stay on budget.
These don’t include toiletries such as soap, shampoo, razors and shaving cream.
1. Quality Towels
First things first, towels are essential commodities for your new apartment. Shopping for them doesn’t have to be tricky, as long as you consider some basics.
Determine the size. You need both hand and bath towels for a complete bathroom. Then, select quality cotton and choose the weight; according to your budget, you’ll find suitable options both online and at your local store.
If you like a pop of color, it’s best to wash your towels upon purchase to help the color pigment set and improve their absorbency over time.
2. Shower Curtain, Liner, and Rings
To avoid water splashing and turning your bathroom into a wet mess, it’s best to invest in some musts for your shower.
Shower curtains are affordable options for small bathrooms, and come in a variety of materials and colors. While cotton absorbs best and requires monthly washing, vinyl shower curtains are a cheaper and functional alternative.
Pick a solid color for a minimalistic look or a wild print for a touch of added fun. You’ll need to combine it with a shower liner for extra protection and rings for easy installing.
3. Shower Caddy
If you’ve got a small washing space, the best way to keep your toiletries organized under the shower is to purchase a shower caddy that you can hang or easily fit into a corner.
If you’re uncertain about which model you should go for, go for aluminum caddies over stainless steel ones. A neat product to optimize your bathroom space is going to be a life-saver and you’ll make great use of it…
