A Man's Home

A Better
Bathroom

It's the one room in your house you begin each day in and shouldn't it be organized, attractive and easy to use? It starts with just a few simple additions. Opt for crisp white towels—it doesn't really matter where you buy them from. Stash your toothbrush out of sight, cover up the Kleenex box, invest in some quality grooming tools (and store them together in some apothecary jars). Of course, nothing's going to stop visitors from peeking inside your medicine cabinet, but at least a well-dressed water closet will show them that you're a man of refined taste—no matter what you've got hiding behind the mirror.

 
Wall-Mounted Mirror

You don't need a lighted makeup mirror, but a magnifying mirror comes in handy when checking for blemishes and errant hairs. And this old school style doesn't take up any counter space.

$29, by Jerdon

 
 
Candle

Whether you're setting up for a romantic or relaxing bath or simply wanting to, er, clear the air, these are a lot better than a cloying can of air freshener.

$22, by Sydney Hale Co.

 
Apothecary Jars

Keep grooming staples organized and store your often-used tools like nail clippers and shoehorns in these simple, artful jars and keep a cluster of them out in plain sight.

From $8, at The Container Store

 
 
Clock

A practical and attractive accessory, a clock will make sure you don't take too long on groggy mornings or when getting ready for a date.

$32, by Braun

 
 
Enamel Sign

Art can be tricky in a bathroom, but this waterproof graphic sign, made from enameled steel, offers a nice morning mantra to keep in mind.

$28, by Best Made Co.

 
 
French Rotating Soap

An ingenious, long-lasting wall-mounted bar of soap which is often found in restaurants and public schools throughout France. Do you need this? Of course not. But is it cool? Yes.

$48, by Provendi
