The internet if packed with items to upgrade your home, and if you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent a lot of time clicking around searching for ways to make your space look and feel better. (And if you haven’t, I’ve done that work for you.) After a lot of thorough online searching, I’ve rounded up a collection of clever things for your bathroom and bedroom I’m pretty sure you can’t live without.

First, there are tons of ingenious ways to make the most of whatever space you have, even if your bathroom and bedroom are the size of a couple of postage stamps. For starters, there’s a three-tier shelf that fits right over the back of your toilet, giving you a place to store air freshener and spare rolls of toilet paper. Then for your bedroom closet, you can get some shoe organizers that let you stack one pair on top of another, which pretty much doubles the amount of storage space you have for your kicks.

Beyond storage, this list is outfitted with products that feel luxurious, because I firmly believe that you really should like the way your bathroom and bedroom look and feel. Some favorites: a shower squeegee finished in brass, a pair of adjustable pillows filled with plush gel microfiber, and hanging bamboo and hemp shelves that add an earthy-chic look to any space. Scroll on for more items that make your bedroom and bathroom so much better.
