Guest Bathroom Essentials

My parents recently stayed with us for a few days while their house was being renovated. It got me thinking about our guest bathroom (you can see my office here and our living room here) and what the essentials are to have on hand. We always want to make sure that our guests are comfortable, and there are a few items that I always want to make sure that we have!

1. Towels

One thing that I love about nice hotels are their cozy and fluffy towels! As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized the importance of purchasing quality towels for us and for our guests. I make sure to leave out bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths in our guest bathroom. We have a variety of different colors, but I love leaving out these blue ones pictured below because of how great they look with the Kate Spade striped shower curtain.


2. Shampoo and conditioner

Shampoo and conditioner are such easy things to forget at home! In case our guests leave theirs behind, I always have a variety of shampoo and conditioners on hand. I have some smaller sized bottles that I love to display in a glass jar like the one below, and then I leave some other varieties in the shower too.



3. Candles

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with candles, and I love leaving them in all of our bathrooms (and all around our house to be honest). It gives the bathroom a spa like feel which I really love! This one below has an amazing vanilla scent and I really like the fun candleholder too.


4. A clean bathroom (most importantly!)

It’s so important to thoroughly clean the bathroom before our guests arrive and also once they leave. Bathrooms can get a little dirty (think toothpaste on the mirror and makeup on the counter top), so I love cleaning with Windex® Original Glass Cleaner to get the guest bathroom sparkly clean. I use

Windex® Original Glass Cleaner to clean the mirror, the sink fixture, and our marble counter top by just following the directions on the bottle. What’s truly better than a product that can clean multiple surfaces?! I have to keep fewer products on hand this way and I also love that it’s quick, easy to use, and it works so well! I pick up Windex® Original Glass Cleaner at my local Walmart in the home cleaning aisle which is really convenient if you’re busy like me.
