Cute Shelving

If you’re organized like me, you’ll really appreciate a good set of shelves. And if you’re not organized, you’ll appreciate the chance to get that way! Shelves are especially helpful in bathrooms with limited space. Maybe you’ve bought all these adorable towels, but they’re hidden under the dreary sink drawers. Shelves come in a variety of types and sized to fit your personal style. Whether your style is rustic or minimalist, you can find something for you.

String Lights

In my opinion, you can never have enough illumination. Perhaps you want to enjoy a relaxing bath. You can’t use candles — they’re a fire hazard. Your regular bathroom lights are harsh. String lights are an excellent way to create a soft and relaxing atmosphere. Place them around your bathroom mirror or gracefully hang them from the ceiling. They come in various colors and styles and are sure to bring a smile to your face and a sigh of relaxation.

Lush Rugs

A cute and comfortable rug really brings a bathroom’s style together. They can help protect your feet from the cold, unforgiving tile floor. They’re machine washable and water absorbent. They can be one color or have pretty patterns. It’s another simple yet comfortable way to bring some color and variety into a plain apartment bathroom.

Succulent Plants

There’s a good reason that succulent plants have become so popular. They thrive indoors and require very little maintenance to keep alive. They come in a variety of colors and shapes. Some even grow beautiful little flowers. They’re another cheap and simple way to spice up a room. There are many different kinds of cute succulent pots, and one is sure to strike your fancy.

Makeup Organizers

Left to their own devices, my makeup brushes seemingly get up and walk away. I’ve spent countless dollars on replacement makeup brushes. That is, until I discovered a makeup organizer. Makeup junkies and dabblers alike will enjoy a cute or classy organizer. It also decreases early morning makeup routine time, since you spend less time looking around for what’s missing and more putting on makeup.
