The best bath trays are the kind that complements your bathtub aesthetically but are also spacious enough to fit all of your bathtime essentials on them, to make sure you get the most out of your quality 'me' time.
You'll agree that after a long, hard day of work, all we want to do is switch off, unwind and indulge in a bit of relaxation. What better way to do that than with a nice, hot soak? Whether you take yours with the best scented candles, essential oils, eucalyptus bouquets or all of the above, the one significant tool that'll transform your tub into a chic wellness haven is a good bath tray.
For some of us, our precious bath time is one of few moments we really get to enjoy our own company and escape from the hectic noise of the outside world. It can be our time to listen to our favorite podcast, catch up on that series we're currently obsessed with or get stuck into that book we've been dying to read. It's also a great time to pamper ourselves with our latest beauty buys—be it a delicious new body exfoliator, a dermatologist-approved face mask or the best moisturizers for dry skin.
However your bath routine looks like, the experience itself will be much better with a swanky new bath tray. Here are some of our favorite options.
