20 First Apartment Bathroom Essentials
Did you know that it was found through a British poll that UK adults spend on average 416 days of their lives in the bathroom?
With so much time spent here, you’ll want to make sure you are surrounded by an environment that you like.
If it’s your first time moving out, whether you’re moving into a college dorm or your first big girl apartment, keep reading to check out this bathroom necessities list.
Before we get onto the list, grab my printable bathroom essentials checklist along with other furniture and essentials for every room you’ll need in one easy package. It even includes a shopping list so it’s easy for you to keep track of what you still need to purchase.
1. Shower Curtain
A shower curtain is a must-have item for your tub and it’s also a great way to decorate your bathroom and inject a little bit of personality into the room. Don’t forget to also get a shower curtain rod as well as shower curtain rings.
2. Bath Rug
A bath rug with a non-skid rubber bottom is great to have when you’re coming out of the shower and you don’t want to wet the floor. I recommend getting a rug made of water-resistant material so that the rug will dry more quickly.
3. Shower Caddy
4. Bath Tub Tray
5. Bathroom Shelf
Don’t have a place to store your toilet paper rolls, extra soap, and other bath necessities? A bathroom shelf can help you store things while saving space.
6. Hand Towel
A soft hand towel always comes in handy after washing your hands. This one is monogrammed for a more personalized touch.
7. Bath Towel
Do you love hotel bath towels? You can have this experience too with a 100% Turkish cotton bath towel in your very own bathroom.
8. Shower Head

9. Hair Dryer
Don’t forget to include a hair dryer on your bathroom essentials list so you don’t have to go a night with wet hair ever again.
If your new place doesn’t come with a mirror, here’s a stylish bathroom mirror that will open up the space and add some charm.
11. Toothbrush Holder
Keep your toothbrush and toothpaste organized on your counter with this toothbrush storage organizer.
12. Laundry Basket
13. Hand Soap Dispenser
This hand soap and lotion dispenser set is cute yet functional and will upgrade your bathroom aesthetic.
14. Hand Soap
Add an aromatic hand soap for a luxurious handwashing experience for you and your guests. I love and recommend J.R. Watkins Liquid Soap as it has a very refreshing scent.
15. Toilet Paper
Don’t forget to stock up on toilet paper for your bathroom. I like the Charmin 2-ply toilet rolls because they’re super soft and are relatively strong for a great price.
16. Toilet Brush & Holder
Don’t be caught unprepared when your toilet gets clogged (because it will happen at least once!). Make sure you get a toilet plunger for any emergencies.
18. Toilet Disinfectant
A powerful toilet bowl cleaner is so important to keep the bacteria and mold at bay. This one is 10x as strong so you’ll get all the gunk out easily.
19. Shower Drain Hair Catcher
Have long hair and your shower drain tends to get clogged? Save yourself the hassle of having to use a snake by having a silicone shower and tub drain protector.
20. Air Freshener
A great-smelling washroom is better than a smelly one. This Air Wick Plug-In Scent Oil Starter Kit includes two warmers and 6 refills so you’ll be stocked.
