Compared to the living room and bedroom, the bathroom might be an area where we spend less amount of time, but it’s not about quantity, it’s about quality, right? Some of the most enjoyable moments (such as taking a nice, long bath) and healthy habits (brushing teeth, skincare routine) take place in the bathroom. In light of that, you should make sure you have all the necessary accessories ready to use.
When buying bathroom accessories that are both stylish and functional, the towel rail is probably the first item to consider. It’s hard to imagine a bathroom without a tower holder. This practical bathroom accessory is usually placed near the shower, the tub or the basin. The essential purpose of the towel holder is to keep your towels off the wet floor and have them nicely displayed. There are various models available on the market, the following being the trendiest.
This simple-looking clean-line towel holder is available in various types: single towel rails, double towel rail and towel rack with more bars. The single towel rail can be a good addition to the guest bathroom, while double towel rails can be used to maximise space and are ideal for larger towels. If you have a big family and a lot of people are using the bathroom, you might need a storage towel rack with more than three bars.
These towel holders are usually made from aluminium or stainless steel, and you can find them in black or chrome finish. They also come in a wide range of dimension, so you can easily find one to suit your style and preferences. These towel bars are not only stylish and elegant but also easy to install.
Having a towel hanger next to your basin to dry your hands or face after washing is a must-have. Towel rings serve perfectly to this purpose. Made from durable stainless steel and aluminium, towel rings are great for holding hand towels in style. You can find them in black, silver and even gold finish. For added ease of use, opt for a model with an open circle design that makes hanging hand towels a breeze.
Freestanding Towel Rack
If you are not a fan of drilling holes and mounting towel hangers on the walls, you can choose a free-standing towel rack that can be moved around for your convenience. There are a lot of different models available, differing in materials (stainless steel, aluminium, wood) that can match your overall bathroom decor. You can find models that hold two, three or more towels.
Toilet Roll Holder
The second essential item that shouldn’t be overlooked is the toilet roll holder. It’s a hygienic and pleasant solution for placing the toilet roll. Contemporary models are reversible and easy for use: anyone can replace the wasted toilet roll with a new one. From the many available options, choose one to match your towel holder and you have a winning combination.
Everyone who uses soap knows how messy it can be, leaving stains everywhere that are not easy to clean. Therefore, investing in a nice and practical soap dish where you can safely place your soap-bar is a brilliant idea.
Opt for a beautiful humidity-resistant wooden soap dish that is designed to withstand moisture and microorganisms. Soap holders with dark brown finish are quite suitable for bathrooms with a modern, contemporary aesthetic.
To keep your bathroom clutter-free, you can upgrade it with a shelf shower caddy. That way, you can keep your shampoo, shower gel, hair conditioner, essential oils, and everything else you use within arm’s reach. Depending on the space available, you can choose a regular two-shelved stainless steel shower caddy, or a corner shower caddy to fill that empty corner in your bathroom.
Although shower caddies are designed for the shower, they can be used a lot around the house. You can give purpose to these clever little portable shelving units by also using them to organize other rooms in your home. They can be used in the laundry room, to organise detergents, softeners and whatever else you keep to deal with laundry. You can also use it as a minibar and put your favourite alcoholic beverages on top with glasses down below. It’s a space-saving solution that looks great – and people won’t even realize that you’re using a shower caddy.
How you take care of your toothbrush can affect your oral health. That being said, a toothbrush holder is what you need for properly storing your toothbrush. Since your toothbrush has to be stored upright and in the open (to air dry thoroughly), a toothbrush holder is a perfect solution.
Decor wise, choose a toothbrush holder that matches the other bathroom accessories. For example, if you have a stainless steel towel rack, toilet roll holder and a shower caddy, there is no point in buying a plastic toothbrush holder. Plus, stainless steel toothbrush holders offer better quality.
Having scented candles in the bathroom is a great idea since you’ll have them within reach whenever you get in the mood for a calming and relaxing hot bath. Scented candles can also help you make your bathroom a more attractive and cosy place that smells nice too.
