Many people spend a lot of time in the bathroom. It's a functional
space where you can bathe, get ready for the day and take care of business.

and tricks from lifestyle and parenting expert Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam

4. Don't be afraid to accessorize your bathroom with items that fit your style
and personality. For your paradise getaway, a bamboo bathmat can create a beachy
vibe that's also chic and modern and Turkish towels can add texture and color.
Even smaller items, such as jewelry stands, towel hooks and toilet paper

Don't forget to clean frequently overlooked places like the back of the toilet,
inside the shower and along the edges of fixtures. Scented cleaning products
such as those from the Clorox Scentiva Pacific Breeze & Coconut line, including
bathroom foamer, toilet cleaning gel, multi-surface spray and disinfecting
wipes, not only deliver a refreshing clean, but can also help transport you to a
relaxing paradise with aromas of coconut, pineapples and warm sandalwood. For
