A Bench for Everything

In the bathroom, it’s the little things that can make the experience so much better, like this teak shower bench. A versatile object that can be used to stow towels, as a footrest when shaving your legs or for setting a book on while you’re in the bath, it’ll make all the difference. Crafted from naturally antimicrobial teak, this shower bench is also meant to handle water exposure.

Towel Up

Having crisp, clean towels to dry off with after a hot shower is a must. If your towels have been feeling old or threadbare, it may be time to invest in this set of six Turkish cotton towels. Available in six different colors and featuring an attractive cross-hatch design, they’re the perfect addition to any bathroom.

Whatever your health goals, keeping a scale in your bathroom can be a great way to stay on track. This digital scale includes body weight, fat and hydration measurements so you can get precise measurements of your body and see your progress. This scale can also store readings for up to 10 different people, so multiple members of your family can keep an eye on their health.
