Bathroom Essentials Checklist

Don’t panic when you read the list or check your budget. There are many things that you can buy under budget from any discount store. Moreover, for bathroom essentials like shower curtains or showerheads, you also check discounts online. 

  • Wastebasket 

A wastebasket is an essential element of the bathroom. Put it beside your toilet or sink to throw tissues and feminine products. Moreover, there is no need to buy a large trash can, a small wastebasket is more than enough as you may not throw a lot of trash in your bathroom. 

Tip: Add a waste disposal bag or trash can liner inside the basket so that it doesn’t get gross, also make it easy for you to empty the trash. 

  • Storage Baskets 

Storage Baskets are best for keeping towels, toilet paper, and cleaning supplies. A few small and one large basket is good enough to keep and hide all your shower or bath essentials. 

  • Hand Wash/Soap 

Self-cleaning supplies include hand wash or soap, shampoo, conditioner, and face wash. These are the very basic and essential checklists of any bathroom, you can extend it as per your choice. 

  • Shower Curtain 

A shower curtain is a must unless you have glass doors to cover your bathtub or shower area. They come in every color, pattern, and texture. To manage the beautiful and elegant curtains in your budget, you may check simple and cheap curtains online and turn them into some DIY curtain art.

  • Non-skid Bath Mat 

You obviously don’t want to slip on the wet floor and break your leg, buying a non-skid absorbent mat should be your first priority!

Unlike common mats or rugs, a non-skid mat has a back with large suction cups for added safety to stop the mats from slipping. This can minimize the chances of falls or accidents in the bathroom. Other kinds of anti-slip bathroom mats have tiny drainage holes to drain water, which restricts the growth of bacteria, or mold. The addition of a non-skid bath mat reduces the wetness and firmly and securely stay in place. 

  • Showerhead

A good working environment friendly showerhead means great showers. Check the showerhead of your bathroom and quickly decide whether you want to clean it or change it. Shower Heads usually buildup a lot of limescale and cleaning them, again and again, affects their shine and performance. While changing a lot of things in the bathroom, you’ve probably thought of your showerhead. It’s better to invest a little money and make your bathroom more functional. Switch to filter showerhead with beads as it has plenty of quality features and benefits. 

  • Bath Towels 

Bath towels are commonly used for drying off after a shower or bath. The size and texture of bath towels make them absorbent and soft, but not overly heavy that’s why it is ideal for drying both hair and body. Invest in a set of good quality, durable bath sheets or bath towels. Also, buy a towel stand or a wall hook to hang your towel near the shower. 

  • Toothbrush Holder

There is no reason to lay your toothbrush flat on the sink and allow germs to make it their bed. Buy an inexpensive toothbrush holder, if your bathroom doesn’t have it with the whole sanitary kit. 

  • Extra Toilet Paper & Holder

When you realize that you don’t have any toilet paper near you in the bathroom, that is definitely the most horrible situation. Stock up toilet paper by buying in bulk. Also to store toilet paper, there are many varieties such as baskets, wall-mounted paper dispensers, or a free-standing paper hanger. 

  • Toilet Brush and Container

Get a toilet brush along with a stand or container and place it behind or beside your toilet or any place you would like. 

Tip: After cleaning your toilet, wash the toilet brush thoroughly and spray it with hydrogen peroxide to disinfect. Also, leave it for a few minutes to drip dry before placing it in the container or holder.

  • Cleaning Supplies

Cleaning Supplies are the top essentials of bathroom checklists. It includes toilet bowl cleaner, disinfectant wipes, glass cleaner, tub and tile cleaner, and lastly a room freshener.  

Bottom Line

Whether you’re moving into a new place or expecting guests, you must keep your washroom well prepared and stocked for any situation. When you combine your bathroom essentials in a checklist, you must remember that you will not have all of these items on day one. You can buy them up as you need them, or plan a shopping trip to your favorite big box store.
