Fresh Scents Make Sense
The question isn’t to smell fresh or not, the question is how will you bring all of that freshness into your lovely bathroom. Luckily for you there are so many options to choose from. From candles to plug-ins and mists, there is no reason why your bathroom shouldn’t smell divine. My favorite option however is that of a clean smelling candle. Not only do candles add a great subtle fragrance (depending on which you choose), but they also add beautiful lighting and a calming feel throughout your home.
Towels on Racks on Racks on Racks
While using napkins for guests to dry their hands on is more sanitary and the route I usually go, coordinating the color of your towels with the color scheme of your bathroom is a chic touch. Plus it’s one of those detail’s that adds to the pretty of your powder room.
Lighten the Mood
Great lighting is just one of those things that while a small detail can do wonders when adding a sense of ambiance to a room. As stated above the light from a candle is perfect for this. Other options are night lights and changing lightbulbs to a lower wattage. One of my favorite uses of lights in the bathroom was a string a Christmas lights strung around a vanity.
Fancy Hand Soap & Lotion
It’s almost a no brainer to state that you should have hand soap in the restroom but adding lotion is a bit of nice extra touch that some hosts fail to use. With places like Home Goods, Ross and Target you have very low-cost affordable options to choose from.
Extra Toilet Paper
Nothing can be worse than going to the restroom and there not being enough toilet paper, add to that a restroom outside of your home and it’s an absolute disaster! Skip the embarrassment for you and your guests and add a couple of rolls of toilet paper so that guests can switch them out themselves when the roll gets low.
Sanitizing wipes are like a warm embrace to your germaphobe friends. They also encourage guests to clean up after themselves without being too overt.
After going to a party in my 20s, standing in line for the restroom for what seemed like an eternity to find that the person in front of me had clogged the toilet only to be yelled at by the host for “sticking her damn tampons down the drain”, my worse fear has always been clogging the toilet. It could have just been a plumbing problem on the hosts part, but the look of pure horror in that girls eyes scared me to death and I’ve made sure to add a plunger in my restroom ever since.
