We keep on top of our wardrobe, but we often let crucial items in the home go overlooked for far too long. We've made a list of the 10 items in a household that most commonly get overlooked and could really stand to be replaced. A few simple swaps of standard household items, and you'll feel the difference an upgrade can make. We start with your bathroom and work our way through items in your kitchen, living room, and bedroom. Give your home the same attention you give your closet and everyday activities like putting food away or drying off after a shower become that much more enjoyable! Opening image: @parachutehome

Vitruvi Porcelain Essential Oil Diffuser
USED CANDLES: Unfortunately, many store-bought candles are classified as toxic. While there are plenty of non-toxic candles out there, we suggest an upgrade to an essential oil diffuser for constant enhancing, mood-boosting properties.
Anthropologie Misona Bath Mat
OLD BATH MATS: It's wise to rotate out old bath mats every so often. They're a playground for mildew and mold, breeding less than appetizing smells. Opt for a washable bath mat to extend the life of your bathroom decor.
Parachute Classic Bath Towel
WORN OUT TOWELS: Nothing makes you feel like you've achieved "put together adult" status than a matching set of fresh, fluffy bath towels — especially ones that you're proud to offer a guest when they're staying over.
1790 Glass Food Storage Container Set
MISMATCHED TUPPERWARE: It's time to upgrade to glass-based Tupperware that nests and stores perfectly as an organized set. This Tupperware comes in particularly handy when meal prepping for the week, whether for yourself or for a whole family.
Threshold Home Sweet Home Doormat
DIRTY DOORMAT: Make the first point of entry into your home one to remember with a doormat that welcomes your guest. Graphic statement designs will make your doorway stand out from your neighbors and bring a smile to your face every time you return to your sanctuary.
Harringdons Kitchen Dish Towels
WORN DISH TOWELS: Consider cutting down on your paper towel usage, harmful to the environment, by stocking your kitchen with a set of tea towels. Use these to wipe your freshly washed dinnerware, dry your hands, and clean your countertops. Then just throw them in the wash!
Nordstrom at Home Kennebunk Bliss Plush Throw
TATTERED THROWS: Make your living room or bedroom even more comfy by upgrading to a plush throw that you'll be thrilled to curl up in at the end of the day. Not only that, but a nice throw looks quite chic when folded and draped stylishly over your sofa.
Bellemain Pure Bamboo Expandable Utensil Drawer
CLUTTERED DRAWERS: Clear the clutter and cut out a headache you get when having to rifle through your top kitchen drawers to find what you need. An expandable utensil drawer can accommodate whatever it is you might need to organize, from cutlery to arts and crafts.
Beckham Hotel Collection Gel Pillow
OLD PILLOWS: Did you know that a pillow with good structural integrity, like a gel pillow, only needs to be replaced every 36 months? That means that the old polyester pillow you've been using is way past it expiration date! For your healthiest night sleep, change to something hypoallergenic and keep on top of washing it.
Mellanni Bed Sheet Set
WORN OUT SHEETS: A good chunk of our lives are spent sleeping. So, it's time to invest in the sheets that wrap you up night after night. You'll feel the difference, especially when opting for a textile-like microfiber which is designed to last.
