If you are looking to prioritize self-care and make more of an effort to relax and reduce stress, one of the best strategies you can try is to slow down the pace of life and take a bath. Baths are wonderful self-care rituals because they are soothing, calming, and can improve your skin in addition to your mental wellbeing. You can take your baths to the next level by incorporating aromatherapy scents, listening to your favorite music or podcasts, and having a bath caddy in your tub.
Here are some ways to use a bath caddy at home and what to look for when you’re shopping for a new bath caddy or bath tray.

What Is a Bath Caddy?

A bath caddy is a type of shelf or tray that rests across a bathtub so you can easily access items while in the tub. Bath caddies are also called bath trays and designed to help you maximize your relaxation in the bathtub by having everything you need and want right at your fingertips.

Bath caddies are made from various materials and come in a wide variety of styles. Some are made from wood, while others feature metal or plastic designs. Bath caddies often have a cupholder, slits to hold up a book, a place to hold your smartphone, and hooks to hang a loofah sponge and razor.

Best Uses for Bath Caddies

Having a bath caddy enhances your bath experience and makes taking baths more convenient and enjoyable. One of the best uses for a bath caddy is to prop up your favorite book so that you can read in the tub without getting the pages wet. This is also a great way to read e-books and e-magazines on your tablet without dropping it into the water. Bath caddies can be used while you write in your journal as you get your thoughts out onto paper to vent your worries, write down what you’re grateful for, or to get in touch with your emotions.

Bath caddies are also great for holding a well-deserved glass of wine for an ultimate relaxation experience at the end of a long day. You can arrange candles on your bath caddy for some ambient lighting and soothing scents while in the bathtub. This is also an ideal place to rest your bar of soap, exfoliating scrubs, and other bath products so that they are easily within reach to clean and nourish your body.

What to Look for in a Bath Caddy or Bath Tray

There are a lot of differences among bath caddies and bath trays, so it is a good idea to shop around and see what’s available before buying the first one you find. For example, bath caddies come in different lengths to suit various sizes of bathtubs, have different weight limits, and are made with different materials. Bamboo bath caddies are very popular options, as well as caddies that have minimalist designs to keep things simple and organized in the tub. You might look for a bath tray that has non-slip pads so that everything stays in place while wet. Many people choose stainless-steel over other types of metal for bath caddies to prevent rusting over time.

Modern-themed bathrooms often look best with metal and wire caddies, while rustic and country-style bathrooms look great with wood bath trays that are warm and comforting. Some bath caddies have high-tech features, such as portable chargers, while others are sturdier and easier to use. Meanwhile, other bath trays are expandable to give you more space to store your favorite items and more options with how you use the tray during your baths.

It’s also a great idea to match your bath caddy to your existing bathroom accents, such as the bathroom mirror, towel bars and rings, and bathroom seating. The bathtub, sink, and toilet you have in your bathroom may also serve as a guide for the type of bath caddy you choose in terms of size, style, and available features.
