7 accessories that will add instant style to your bathroom
As one of the most practical rooms in the home, it’s easy to overlook the bathroom when it comes to decorating. We’re constantly in and out, but rarely give our bathroom décor a second thought. Whilst items like bathmats, shower curtains, towels and soap dispensers ultimately exist to serve a function and make our lives easier, along with a few other thoughtfully placed bathroom accessories, they can really tie the room together and contribute to your home’s overall feel. So, whether you’re renting, or just not that enthused about spending a small fortune on bathroom renos, check out these easy ways to add your own personality and style.
1. Bathroom essentials
These are the practical essentials that every bathroom should have, but they need not take away from the overall look. Opt for sturdy soap dispensers, toothbrush holders, canisters and trays that are pleasing to the eye and built to last. With quality options like ceramic, marble, granite, bamboo and glass, you’re bound to find something to suit your tastes.
The humble bathmat should not be underestimated when it comes to refreshing your bathroom. The softness underfoot can provide a real sense of luxury and be the finishing touch to easily transform your bathroom. Fun bathmats are also becoming a thing – we are loving the new range of patterns, slogans and bright colours available!
Who said these need to be restricted to the living room and bedroom? Plants like Devil’s Ivy love warmth and humidity and will thrive in the mist that fills the bathroom after a hot shower. Add a pop of green to a shelf or windowsill and turn your bathroom into a tropical scene. Artificial plants or dried flowers are another great alternative if your bathroom doesn’t get much light.
Skincare products are a crucial element in any bathroom and thanks to aesthetic packaging, they are often worthy of a prime position on the vanity.
Sitting in the same category as skincare, candles will take your home spa experience up a notch, but also double as décor. A few carefully chosen candles can really add to a bathroom’s ambience.
Luxurious towels can instantly add style and make a bathroom feel more put together. If your bathroom is already very neutral, skip the classic beige and white and add some interest with colour.
7. Bath and shower accessories
For those of us prone to accumulating endless skincare and beauty products, a shower or bath caddy, or a trinket box, can help to organise them and instantly add a sense of calm to the bathroom. Replacing a shower curtain that has seen better days is another quick win that will totally refresh your bathroom.
