Common Bathroom Accessories

Since the bath is a place where we clean ourselves, every respectable house owner should have his/her share of bathroom accessories. We all care about our hygiene and we have a certain fear towards using public toilets and such. After all, we can have a meal at a restaurant, but we can hardly replace our personal bathroom with anything else. This is what makes this room so important.

That’s also the reason why we should make our bathroom as comfortable as possible, and that’s where bathroom accessories come into place. They personalize the room and make it more enjoyable for us. After all, certain styles of bathrooms will always exist, and every era will have its modern approach. However, the accessories are the ones that give it a special and personal touch.

What are the most common accessories? Well, I am sure you already know that. We are talking about showers, sinks, tubs, faucets, but also mirrors, towel holders, shampoos, tooth brushes, shower curtains, etc. They should all work together to keep this space as clean as possible and germ free.

When you think about choosing the right bath and bathtub accessories, your main concern should be – as always – the space that you have at your disposal. You don’t want your bathroom to look too cluttered or too crowded. They serve a dual purpose: to be practical and to make the room more enjoyable, so you need to find the right combination by taking into account these two factors.

For instance, you may have some furniture that is underutilized or not utilized at all. You need to replace that with accessories that will add value to the room and will increase your comfort. You also need to think about practicality. For instance, you should keep your towel holders somewhere where you have immediate access to them right after you shower. These details that make you more comfortable are priceless.

Speaking of colors, you may want to coordinate your accessories’ colors. For instance, you can use a specific family of colors for your towels. Also, other types of accessories like soap dispensers, toothbrush holders and other similar items can be grouped together in a unique color theme. Good choice of colors in your accessories can make the bathroom look more youthful, attractive and pleasant altogether both for your family and your guests.

If reading is one of your pleasures when taking a bath, you must also consider a magazine rack. Overall, the items in your bathroom should be fairly easy to clean. Also, they should be maintained in a timely fashion and they should be able to resist moisture at least to some degree.

There are many other accessories that you can use in your bathroom: for instance, a fog free mirror for better shaving, a shower massager for great relaxation, pillar taps, cabinets, shelving, floor coverings, etc. It’s just a matter of preference and budget. If you take all the aspects mentioned in this article into consideration, you should definitely have a great looking bathroom.

Make Your Bathroom Comfortable For Your Kids With Proper Accessories

A thing that most children always try to avoid is cleaning up and taking a “painful” bath. As a matter of fact, it only takes a glimpse of the bathroom for them to start feeling frustrated and even cry. So why not make the process a lot easier both for you and your children by decorating one of your bathrooms with kids bathroom accessories? The whole process will become much more fun for your child and will consequently save you a lot of headaches.

And if you want to get the best results out of the bathroom redecorating process, you will want to plan everything thoroughly and carefully – well, like anything else in life. You need to think about the theme of the bathroom, and you can also involve your children in the process too. Ask them what would be their desired theme and look, and try to incorporate some of their ideas that are good. If they can help you, try to involve them also. It will give them a sense of accomplishment and will perceive the bathroom as a much more familiar place.

Besides that, you will need to thoroughly think about how those accessories will fit in the overall theme of the bathroom and integrate them properly. Either your children are into sports, animals like zebras, elephants or giraffes, cars, or anything else, you need to notice what your bathroom already has. You may already have some items that are in the same theme, like a soap dish, a wastebasket, etc.

For instance, one item that can nicely bring everything together is a wallpaper border. It can be placed either on a single wall or on every single wall of the room, in the place where the wall and the ceiling meet. Then, there are the bath towels which serve a dual purpose: an obvious functional one and a decorative one.

If you add a carefully chosen wallpaper border that matches a bath rug, you will create the effect of a very well designed bath. This is because the eye will not be drawn to the ceiling, but more to the floor. Also, think about adding a thematic shower curtain, that will match the overall theme of the bathroom.

Another good idea that will make your kid feel much more comfortable is to bring some of his or her most prized items and place them in the bathroom. However, you need to be careful where you place them, so that the moisture will not damage them. Finally, use your own judgment and common sense when decorating the room with bathroom accessories for kids.  Make sure that they are appropriate for your child’s age and that they are truly unique, making them a delight to your child.

Tip no. 1: Replace one of your old vanities with a smaller one

Bathroom vanities, like most pieces of furniture, come in various shapes, sizes, material and prices. This variety will help you find a smaller vanity that can replace the older one, without ruining the overall feel of your bathroom.


Tip no. 2: Make good use of the space you have available in your already existing vanity

It may sound blatantly obvious, but we often have a tendency to overlook certain things that will make our lives easier. Especially the simplest ones of them all, because we try to think complicated. You may use the space for items like tissue, soap, shampoos, etc. This will help you get rid of some clutter.


Tip no. 3: Check for existing accessories in your vanity

You may have some products that should have been thrown away a long time ago. Take all the accessories or objects you have in your vanity and pile them all together. Then, start sorting through all of them. Throw away the expired or used ones. Bear in mind that expired products can also damage your health.


Tip no. 4: Make good use of mirrors

I don’t know if you have noticed this, but a larger mirror will make your bathroom look larger itself. A small mirror that stands above the vanity can be replaced with a larger – and while you are at it, more modern – one. This will give the impression of space inside your bathroom.


Tip no. 5: Use corners

Corners are some of the least occupied spaces in any bathroom. If you are short on space, you can make good use of corners thus making your room larger. You can buy a corner vanity in order to achieve that.


Tip no. 6: Paint your bath in a light color and do the same with your vanity

I know it may sound like a big step, but if you like lighter colors for your bathroom, then why not do it? Make sure that you also either buy a new vanity or paint the existing one in a light color that matches your new walls.


Tip no.7: Buy a pedestal vanity

The space that the vanity occupies on the floor can be saved by using the pedestal vanity. This is an option if you want to have a vanity for an aesthetical reason, because this vanity doesn’t include storage space.


So who says that you can do nothing if you are limited on space? These ideas should give you a nice place to start in order to craft the bathroom of your dreams.
