The bathroom is probably the least thought about room in the home for many people. Most would be happy with it as long as it’s clean and not smelly. But there are lots of funky bathroom accessories that are useful for your bathroom whether it’s for storage or use. There are bathroom gadgets as well for your everyday basic essential needs like a toothbrush.
We’ve come up with a list of the best bathroom gadgets and bathroom accessories that can help to improve your bathroom routines as well as looking cool in your bathroom. Some of these could suit a type of bathroom theme you’re aiming for or it could inspire you to try out some new bathroom ideas.
1. Salter Glass Body Fat Analyser Bathroom Scale
In every bathroom, one of your must have bathroom gadgets should be a digital bathroom scale. The Salter Glass Body Fat Analyser Bathroom Scale is made from toughened glass with smooth rounded corners and is slim which is convenient for storing away in bathroom storage units when it’s not in use.
In addition to measuring your weight, this scale also measures your BMI, body water and body fat – all on an easy to read LCD display. There’s enough memory for up to four users and the carpet feet ensures accurate weighing whatever floor surface the scale is placed on.
2. Braun Series 3 3040 Men’s Electric Shaver
A handy bathroom gadget every man needs is an electric shaver such as the Braun Series 3 3040 Men’s Cordless and Rechargeable Electric Shaver which is ergonomically designed to give a secure grip even when it’s used in the shower. Shaving can be done wet with gel or foam and it can be done dry as well without causing irritation to your skin because of the MicroComb technology and SensoFoil.
Being cordless, this electric razor lasts up to 45 minutes on a full charge which is enough for quite a few shaves. It certainly lasts longer than battery powered shavers. There’s a LED indicator that shows the battery of the shaver but if it’s out of juice and you need a quick shave, just a 5 minute charge will be enough to see you through one shave. It’s easy to clean too since it can be submerged up to 5 metres of water.
3. Danielle Wall Mounted Chrome Extending Mirror
Shaving or putting on make-up often requires you to lean in close to the mirror to get a close up and detailed look at your face. By using the Danielle Wall Mounted Chrome Extending Mirror, you won’t have to strain yourself leaning and squinting into the mirror as this one features one side that magnifies the image by 5 times making it easier to spot if anything has been missed in your shaving or make-up routine.
Once fixed to the wall, the mirror arm can extend up to 64cm long and will fold back up neatly against the wall so it’s not in the way. It doubles up as a normal mirror too as the other side has a true image mirror.
4. SimpleHuman Magnetic Drip Free Toilet Brush
Knocking over toilet brushes in the bathroom or picking them up whilst it’s dripping is quite horrible and unhygienic. You end up having to clean whatever surface the toilet water drips have landed on too. However, the SimpleHuman Magnetic Drip Free Toilet Brush provides a more hygienic way to use a toilet brush because of its drip free design featuring a magnetic collar to secure the stainless steel rod to the plastic cover.
Cleaning the toilet with this brush ensures a more efficient clean which means less scrubbing (and toilet water splashback!) due to the stiff outer bristles. It can easily get to those hard to reach areas because of the crescent shaped head unlike conventional rounded brush heads. The slim design makes it easier to store it in small gaps out of the way and out of sight as well.
5. Philips Wet & Dry Ladyshave
For women, one of the most important bathroom accessories is a razor which pretty much does the job for all hairy needs but it’s not skin friendly and causes a lot of little nicks and cuts. With the Philips Wet & Dry Ladyshave HP6341/02, you can shave or trim those hairy body parts without damaging your skin as this shaver protects your skin during shaves.
A trimming comb attachment is also included which is ideal for trimming delicate areas such as the bikini line so this will save you from having to buy another razor for that area. Unlike manual razors, the Ladyshave is ergonomically designed so it fits comfortably in your hand enabling you to move it over your body for a closer shave.
6. Wenko TurboLoc Towel Ring
When you have so many towels hung up, it can often be hard to find the one you need and towels take longer to dry as well especially one that’s used most often – the hand towel. The Wenko TurboLoc Towel Ring can help to distinguish your hand towel from the rest so everyone will be drying their hands on the correct towel. Having it fixed next to the sink would be ideal as it will be within easy reach.
This towel ring is easy to fix on because of the special adhesive back so it requires no screws or drilling. It’s a very strong pad that can be stuck on any smooth surface and when removed, it leaves behind none of that sticky residue which is often the case with other adhesive pads. This is one of the handiest bathroom accessories to have particularly if everyone is often using other towels to dry their hands!
7. Simplehuman Wall Mount Pumps
If you’re looking to give your bathroom a bit more style or extravagance, then the Simplehuman Wall Mount Pumps should be included in your list of luxury bathroom accessories.

The pumps are easy to fix on with the adhesive strips and silicone glue if you don’t fancy drilling or screwing anything in. It’s easy to clean or refill the dispensers as it can be removed from the wall plate.
