There are many underrated satisfaction in our lives. Examples are a genuine smile from a stranger, cold pillows, when you get your favorite songs while on shuffle mode, and other underrated moments that bring us a different kind of happiness. Another example that I think we can all agree on is a beautiful bathroom.
We all have one and we all want a clean one. Imagine this, you go to a hotel, apartment or house then what greets you is a welcoming fragrance, clean and organized furniture, and beautiful bedrooms. It makes you feel welcomed and more positive. But another thing that caught your attention is the shiny, clean, refreshing, and fragrant bathroom.
Yes! The bathroom. If you’re still imagining a stinky and gross bathroom, that’s not what I’m pertaining to but the clean floors, freshly prepared towels, comfy lights, and fragrant soaps that makes you want to stay there (don’t stay for too long though) and enjoy a nice warm stay. A bathroom like this is the one that lives up to the name “Comfort room” or “Restroom”
Luckily, you don’t need a full renovation to achieve this kind of bathroom. If you want a clean and attractive bathroom for your guests, for your pictures, for your family, and for yourself. Here are the 10 must-have items that you need for your dream bathroom.
1. Bathroom Decoration Items
Again, you don’t need a full renovation to achieve your dream bathroom so to spice up your bathroom simple decorations will do the job. You read that right, SIMPLE. Don’t make your bathroom your next gallery.
So simple decoration items such as mirrors, clipart, decorative lights, and wall decor are enough. A mirror is not just a decoration but also a need.
For us to properly check ourselves we need something to reflect us and that is our mirror so we can check any dirt or fix our tuck-ins.
Spice up your bathroom with a simple painting or art. Generally speaking, a minimalist aesthetic can make your bathroom look cleaner and more expensive.
You can add lights on the outline of the mirror to have a different light and create a hotel experience for your guests. There are many options so if you’re fond of customizing and designing, this is your chance!
2. Bathroom Items that start with “O”
There are only a few bathroom items that start with the letter O. But don’t worry, these items are essential for you and your bathroom. Bathroom items such as ointment, oral toothbrushes, and odor removers are all important.
Ointments or anti-bacterial creams are needed in a bathroom.
Some unexpected emergencies may occur and having an ointment will reduce the risk of skin infection.
Not also that but it can also be used for rashes that people may want to apply only in the bathroom. Oral toothbrushes are also another important essential that starts with the letter O.
A good breath keeps people near (this is not a quote). Kidding aside, having a minty breath will always compliment you, and having a toothbrush ready for you and your guests is a nice gesture that anyone will appreciate.
And lastly, odor removers. These are really needed because nobody likes a smelly bathroom. Odor removers help you get rid of unpleasant smells and can also provide a pleasant fragrance that can make your stay in the bathroom relaxing.
Achoo! Allergies… This can really be a pain for most of us, but what adds up to that pain is where it was triggered. And allergies triggered in the bathroom also known as the restroom don’t really seem pleasant to the ears.
But when you live in a humid climate you will often encounter molds, dust mites, and mildew which are the most common triggers for allergy. It doesn’t just affect our allergies but also our overall health and mold allergies can cause childhood asthma.
But for every solution, there is an answer. Dehumidifiers. A dehumidifier is an appliance that gets rid of humid or damp areas in our bathroom.
In its coils, warm air currents are being drawn then condensation happens and eventually releases cooler air. Because of this, the humidity is reduced and mold build-up in not ventilated areas is prevented.
It’s also easy to use you just simply place the dehumidifier in the bathroom, plug it in and turn it on. Then you’re done. Getting rid of molds and a damp environment will give you a lot of benefits, from avoiding pests and eliminating allergy triggers to having a clean bathroom. This can all be achieved by a dehumidifier.
