Because we like obsessing over the little things at the Strategist, we wanted to focus on the bathroom. It might not be where you do your entertaining, but let’s be honest: Everyone loves a good snoop around a bathroom. Whether you’re a bath person or a shower person, you probably spend a lot of time in there, so we’ve rounded up some of the best cheap (but expensive-looking) bathroom accents for adding a decadent touch on a small budget.
Even if your bathroom isn’t decked out in millennial pink tones, this bin would be a nice touch.
This Egyptian cotton towel set is the best-selling set on Amazon (and the highest rated).
The chains on this hanging mirror are a nice accent.
We like this minty, lemony soap – handmade in Devon.
This bamboo shower stool could also be used to stash towels.
It’s totally normal not to think of “expensive-looking” when you think of shower curtains, but this geometric design is pretty nice.
The kind of gown you’d happily swipe from a hotel room.
A paraben- and sulphate-free bubble bath, made using English honey.
An (all-natural) jar of hand cream.
Add a splash of colour to your bathroom floor.
We like the thick cotton strap on this body brush.
An inoffensive toilet brush, with a recess to store your cleaning materials.
This corner shelf could be used to store towels and loo roll – as well as in the shower itself.
We like the minimalist design of this shower radio.
Alternatively, Strategist editor Ailbhe is a fan of this weirdly powerful Bluetooth shower speaker (she gives it as a gift, as well as using it in her own shower).
This cart is a good solution to a storage-free bathroom.
We like these Atomic-ish coat hangers. Use them for dressing gowns, towels and shower caps.
Put your cotton bud habit to bed, with this reusable swab.
Eco-friendly loo roll, which looks so charming that you’ll want to leave it in view.
