Bathroom accessories play a vital role in determining the mood, style and overall look of your bathroom. By selecting the right ones, you can elevate the space and make the bathroom look cozy, chic, glamorous, minimalistic or however you want it to look.
Whether they are made of wood, plastic or stainless-steel, bathroom accessories come in a variety of styles and have different purposes. Here is our guide to choosing the perfect accessories, ranging from inexpensive options to the most stylish ones.
What Should I Do Before Choosing my Bathroom Accessories?
Know your budget. Do not make too many compromises and find accessories that are within your budget but still of good quality.
Make a list of the things you need. Try and not bulk buy and start with the essentials. Then you can assess the space available and match additional pieces to existing ones.
Popular brands are not always the best. Look at individual items instead of relying on the brand's reputation.
Should I Choose Fitted or Free-standing Bathroom Accessories?
From the basic soap holder to a magnifying mirror, bathroom accessories come in two main installation options:
- Fitted Bathroom Accessories
Some soap dispensers and toothbrush holders require installation, but they are still considered more convenient and will last longer because they are subject to less wear. In regards of installation, you will need a drill to make the necessary holes in the tiles. Unless you prefer accessories that have a suction cup, but some of them can be a real nuisance. Keep in mind that drilled in accessories can handle heavier things.
- Free-standing Bathroom Accessories
The advantage of this type of accessories is that you can place them on any surface, but only if you have the space. You can also move them around until you have found the perfect spot and replace them easier. However, they will need more regular cleaning and maintenance.
