Toilet Paper Stand
Make sure there's always extra toilet paper within reach in case the roll runs out. This stand makes that possible, while also giving your guest bathroom a stylish flair.

A good host goes above and beyond to make their houseguests feel comfortable. This small detail will do just that. These post-poo drops are also kind of funny, given the seriousness of the packaging.
In a bathroom, you need reading material for both style and in case your guests need a way to pass the time. If you don't have room for a magazine rack or etagere, just place them on top of the toilet tank.
If you've ever gone over to someone's house without a wastebasket in the bathroom (yes, it happens), you know just how transformative this item is. This one merges style with function.
Use a stylish soap pump to disguise the more affordable liquid soap in a prettier package.
Place a slim container by the sink for toothbrush storage. Bonus points if you stock toothpaste in it or in a drawer nearby.
Mrs. Meyer's plant-derived products don't just smell delicious, but they also get the job done. We love the unique radish scent of this one, but if you're more into floral notes, we understand.
Don't stress if your hand soap doesn't come in a fancy bottle. Use a stylish soap pump to disguise the more affordable liquid soap in a prettier package.

Place a freshly laundered and folded bath towel on their pillow or at the end of their bed so they know which one they can use.
A neutral bathmat right outside the shower or bath will keep their feet warm and absorb any puddles.
Opt for a stylish hand towel that's both useful and pretty. This one is neutral enough to blend in with almost any décor scheme.
Since there isn't much surface area for anything that isn't purely functional in a bathroom, an area rug is a great way to warm up the space with a pop of color.
First Aid Box
Having ibuprofen, bandages, and other basic first-aid items on hand is a must. Your guests will seriously appreciate it.
Vase with Flowers
A pretty vase full of fresh flowers will instantly beautify the bathroom. Choose a stylish vase so that when you don't have guests and forgo the fresh blooms, it'll still look chic on the vanity.
Since there isn't much room for décor in the bathroom, introduce some personal style with wall art. Depending on the size of your bathroom, you can opt for one large statement piece, or choose a couple smaller framed works.
A full-length mirror on the back of the door or leaning against a wall in the bathroom will make getting dressed and living out of a suitcase a little less difficult.
It's always nice to keep an extra toothbrush in stock in case they forget their own.
The same thing goes for toothpaste. We love Marvis's jasmine flavor.
Make sure the shower is stocked with all the basic grooming products in case they didn't bring their own. This kit delivers everything in one place.
Giving your guests something to sit on aside from the toilet is always a good idea. A stylish multipurpose stool like this one can double as a side table for wine and candles during a long soak in the bath.
Whether you hang your bath caddy over the edge of the tub like this one or opt for a tray-like alternative, your guests will love the easy access to soap, loofas, and bath salts.
Placing a sleek towel hook within reach of the shower is key. No one wants to scurry in the nude to the other side of the bathroom for a towel!
While some prefer liquid soap, others would rather use classic bar soap. A glossy soap dish will keep your guests from making a mess on your countertops. We love a good metallic accent, too.
Serene Shower Curtain
Pale shower curtains tend to be easier on the eyes than bold, colorful ones. White and light gray make your bathroom feel a little bit bigger, too. If you want to implement pattern in your space, opt for something simple and clean.
One of everyone's favorite things about staying in a hotel is the fluffy robe. Keeping a clean, cozy bathrobe on the back of the door will make your guests feel like they're in the lap of luxury.
Nothing feels more soothing than a refreshing moisturizer after washing your hands, so keep a bottle of hand lotion handy in your guest bathroom at all times.
Ever notice that most spas are dotted with greenery? Plants have been known to add a calming element to a space, so we highly recommend placing a succulent or two somewhere in your guest bathroom. The best part? You only need to water it once a week. If you're feeling bold, you can even learn to start your own succulent garden.
