I’m one of those people who seeks beauty and harmony in everything in my home, from the obvious pieces like furniture to the more functional and mundane pieces. Cue Simple Human, which brings a beautiful design aesthetic to items such as garbage bins, all while keeping their products super functional and user-friendly.
When I moved into my new home, I knew I wanted a Simple Human trash can. Their stainless steel finish is fingerproof-resistant and their rectangular trash can feels like the iPhone of trash cans. I’ll explain – Simple Human has taken into account lots of little pain points you encounter with traditional trash cans and eliminated them. A pocket on the inside of the can stores garbage bags and makes for quick changing. The design of the can also keeps any garbage liner edges from showing, which is amazing.
The pail opens and closes through a foot pedal, and when it shuts, it slowly lowers and makes no noise. The 55 liter can retails for $180.
Simple Human makes a range of products, from soap dispensers to dish racks and paper towel holders. The other product that we can’t believe we lived so long without is their Sensor Mirror. These magnifying mirrors are perfect for applying makeup and other daily tasks. We love this feature that the rechargeable mirror automatically lights up when you move near it to use it. The LED lights in the mirror simulate natural sunlight. It also shuts off on its own. The mirror is fully adjustable so that you can angle it in whichever which way you need. Oh, and unlike your iPhone, the mirror’s charge lasts 5 weeks. The 8 inch model is $200.
