Bath and Shower Accessories

Contents[Hide]

Whether you're decorating a new bathroom or just looking to make some changes, the following guide will help give you some ideas for great products to add to your bathroom décor and regimen. While many of these items are not necessities, all of them will help you in one way or another to get the most out of your shower or bath time. They also make great gifts. Scrub a dub dub! 

Make Life Easier

These products will help get you organised and stay that way.

Dispensers  will help keep all of your shower products organised and mess-free.

Shower caddies  keep all of your products in one place--great if you don't have a bathtub or ledge.

Shower stools  and footrests  make shaving and washing much easier. They are also good for those who can't stand up for long periods of time.

A fogless shower mirror  makes it easy to see what you're doing while shaving.

Shower mats  will keep you from slipping.

Scrubbers

Everyone needs a good scrubber to slough away all of those dead skin cells that can accumulate over time. There are plenty of different types, so there's sure to be one out there to suit your needs.

Back Brushes  with long handles are great for reaching those hard to get spots. The strong bristles can feel like a massage, but these brushes are not the best at creating a rich, foamy lather. Remember that you will need a hook to hang them on. Wooden styles with detachable heads are the best for multi-purpose use.

Loofahs  have natural scrubbing elements and won't irritate your skin. They come in many different varieties, like hand-held scrubs, mitts , and they can also come on a wooden handle. Loofahs might maintain an odour if not properly washed out and dried after a while, so make sure to take extra care to avoid this.

Slightly more abrasive than your average loofah are nylon scrubbers. These also come in a variety of shapes, like sponges  and shower puffs . Puffs are great at working up a rich lather and all nylon scrubbing products are pretty much indestructible. Unlike loofahs, these are easy to clean and won't develop any mould or smell.

Whether it be a terry cloth wash cloth ,sponge , or mitt , all terry cloth products will lather you up and give you a refreshing clean that's non-irritating. You won't get as much polish as you would from a harsher scrubber, but you'll still be left with a good, clean, feeling.

Massagers  are a great way to relax and unwind in the shower or bath. While these are not necessarily scrubbers, they do have deep-tissue benefits and are very therapeutic. Try one like the one pictured above or consider an innovative massage pillow .

Fun Stuff

Shake things up! Bring out your inner Pop Idol or allow the kids to 'paint' all over the tub. These products will help you bring some fun and liveliness into the shower.

Massaging Showerheads 

A pulsating shower head will give your scalp a massaged feeling that's sure to release tension throughout your entire body.

Rubber Duckies 

Relive your childhood with a cute yellow duck.

Shower Radios 

If you love to sing in the shower, but need a little backup, then these are for you. Also, consider getting a shower CD player  to play your favorite discs.

Rub a Dub Paint in the Tub 

Kids will love this toy that allows them to paint while getting clean.

Bath Tub Appliques 

These are a nice decorative touch but also serve as a safety precaution for tubs without bath mats.

Ultimate Relaxation and Luxury

Go on, indulge yourself! These products will help you get the most relaxation out of your bath or shower experience. 

Spa Slippers 

After finishing a long, hot shower, step into these slippers for some more relaxation. These shoes also have a gripping bottom so you won't have to worry about slipping and sliding all over the bathroom.

Terry Cloth Robes 

A great gift idea, these robes are soft and comfy. Get Turkish or Egyptian cotton with a high thread count for a luxurious and rich feel.

Scented Candles 

Use these to set the mood in your bathroom for an added element of relaxation or romance.

Bath Pillows 

If you're in the mood for a long bath, a bath pillow will help keep you comfortable and relaxed. Try ones that are terry cloth covered or go for an inflatable one.

Bathtub Caddy 

A bathtub caddy will help you organise everything you need for your bath, all in one easy place.
