Pretty Ugly: Attractive Options for Utilitarian Home Items


Have you ever spent an evening scouring the internet for a shower caddy that isn’t hideous? Do you use a stylish flower pot or utensil crock to hold/hide the toilet brush in the bathroom? Do you pick out shower gel based on how attractive the bottle will look sitting in your shower? If you answered yes to these questions, we see you; we are you, and we wrote this post especially for you. Utilitarian home products are an unavoidable necessity, and unfortunately most of the options out there are unattractive AF, but this doesn’t mean you can’t find aesthetically pleasing options. To save you the hassle of tracking them down, we’re bringing you a round up of our designer-approved picks.

P.S. If you like this post, please let us know in the comments, because we’d love to do some more posts in this series. Today we’re covering trash cans, extension cords and power strips, shower caddies, and paper towel holders, but we’d love to tackle dish racks, toilet brushes and more in the next installment.
