It’s surprising that something as important as a garbage can is so often undervalued by the design world. Not so for simplehuman, a modern lifestyle brand that boasts an extensive catalog of versatile, multifunction trash bins. These include extra-tall cans and compartmentalized recycling units for kitchen use, some of which feature fingerprint-resistant outer coatings. There are also small, lidded versions for the office, plus takes featuring a high-tech sensor and a built-in deodorizer. The California-based company also designs its own size-specific trash bags, plus a slew of other domestic essentials for kitchen, bath, and laundry rooms: soap dispensers with sensor pumps, clever dish racks, and much more. Simplehuman transformed the trash can with the introduction of its innovative stainless steel “butterfly” step can in 2000; today, the brand continues to design everyday tools to help people become more efficient at home.
Before redecorating, start by cleaning out: Any time's the perfect time to donate old clothes. (Toss anything you haven’t worn in a year… trust us, it’s freeing.) Then get to re-doing your closet, putting all your favorite items within eye’s reach. Neu Home’s sleek essentials will ensure that this space isn’t just well organized, but looks as stylish as the clothes in it.
Nothing says calm like a bathroom that's free from clutter. Free up your sink by stashing your combs, sponges, products, and more in these elegant boxes, jars, and dispensers. Pick up a couple of baskets and hampers while you're at it, and control that tower of towels.
Your bath can have all the Turkish-cotton towels, plush mats, marble fixtures, and luxe accents out there, but if it’s not organized, it’ll fall short. Luckily, these organization essentials — from medicine cabinets to storage towers — will ensure that your powder room functions flawlessly.
