If you’re lucky enough to have a bathtub in your home, you’ll know just how good they are for when you want to escape and indulge in a little self-care — especially in winter. Whether you’re a simple bath bomb person or love bubbles galore, bath time isn’t complete without a glass of wine, a few candles, and your choice of book, podcast, or show to binge. This is where a bath tray is a perfect addition to your bathroom.
This handy bath accessory keeps everything within reach while you soak in the tub. There are a variety of different options to choose from — some are simple planks that sit across your bath and can be arranged however you like. Others come with multiple tiers and sections that hold your books, iPad, phone or laptop in place. Some have also got a built-in wine holder so you can really relax and unwind.
Depending on your bath time needs, there’s a style for everyone. Not to mention how aesthetically pleasing they look in your bathroom.
Ahead, we’ve rounded up a range of bath trays so you can find the perfect fit.
