PHOENIX -- Get a luxurious hotel bathroom feel by adding just a few accessories and new gadgets to your bathroom and shower.

Some need minor installation, others are as easy as peel and stick or suction cup. With just a few additions, you will feel like you're at a five-star hotel.

Here are some of the options, choose one or more, but even only one will make a difference.

A curved hotel-style shower curtain rod adds up to 2 feet to any tub/shower.(You'll need a drill, power screwdriver, stud finder, tape measure and a level.)

Hotel-style soap/shampoo/conditioner dispensers let you get rid of all the bottles in the shower and/or tub area. The dispensers save money and everything lasts a lot longer. (Some install with peel -and-stick for an instant bond along with silicone for that long-lasting water-proof bond)

A heated toilet seat with a portable bidet attachment built in is simply heavenly. (Changes out like a regular toilet seat and runs on batteries.)

An individual portable bidet accessory attaches to any toilet.

A suction-cup squeegee for keeping that shower glass clean is a great touch.

Peel-and-stick shower mirror, blow-dryer holder, soap dish and towel hooks are nice luxe touches. (Easy install leads to great style, organization and efficiency.)

Deluxe bronze, brushed nickel and chrome over-the-showerhead caddies or deluxe twist-tight floor-to-ceiling corner caddies offer out-of-the-way organization at its best.

A no-hands automatic soap dispenser is simply awesome!
