When it comes to choosing bathroom accessories, there’s a combination of what you need and what you like. Ignore that and prepare for a full dissatisfaction. Throw some prices on the table too. Some accessories for bathrooms are particularly expensive – or not worthy of the high price. Who doesn’t want to consider the cost?
Now, before we jump straight into the hows and whys, let us consider one more thing. The list of bathroom accessories is not short. It may not include the bathroom vanities but everything on it and around it. It also includes towel holders, soap dispensers, wastebaskets, mirrors, toilet brushes – to mention the very basics.
The question is how to start collecting stuff, which are your priorities, and which accessories will be best for a black, blue, or white bathroom – ideas for any style!
Think of your bathroom design
Are you looking for accessories to decorate a modern bathroom, ideas for a traditional style, some inspiration for a classic design? When it comes to the accessories of your bathroom, they must all match the room’s style. So, focus on that first and be sure that everything you buy is of the same style to set the tone.
Draw a line – budget-wise
Not all beautiful bathroom accessories are expensive and not all expensive accessories are beautiful. So, relax and take a deep breath. There are innumerable choices for all bathroom styles. But you need to do some research to see what’s out there. With the internet, this is easy nowadays. You can compare styles and prices – read reviews too. Make sure to put a roof on your spending, especially if you are in the process of bathroom remodeling. To help yourself not overstep the budget line, make a list of all the things you want to get and put prices next to each item to come up with the sum.
Consider the bathroom’s size and layout
Getting a huge waste bin in a tiny bathroom is not the best idea, is it? And then, you must consider the available space on the wall where you need to hang towel rails. Or they won’t fit and you must get hooks? Details like that may easily get you upset if they don’t fit. To avoid disappointment tomorrow, plan and measure well today. Consider the bathroom’s shape, size, all details of the structure – corners, the way the door is opening, et cetera, so that you will not face any unpleasant surprises.
Pick the absolutely necessary first
All main bathroom accessories are important. Still, there are some you cannot do without, like the bathroom lighting, the mirror, the toothbrush holder. So, make a priority list, especially if you are on a tight budget. It’s best to have bathroom vanities with lights and not a shower mat than the other way around – if you must.
Treat yourself to some beauties
Indulge yourself in some items that really steal your heart. While it’s best to be linear when it comes to the style and color of the bath’s accessories, it’s not necessary to get a set. If, for example, you decide to get black bathroom accessories, you can buy them individually. Or you may want some accessories to stand out, like getting a bamboo bathroom waste bin. If there’s a need to get a shower curtain, you may want to search for a pattern that best suits your taste.
Focus on quality
When we talk about accessories, the mind goes straight to the small items found in each bathroom – hooks, bins, brush holders, dispensers, et cetera. But the bathroom faucets, showerheads, and lights are also accessories. They are actually the main accessories of the bathroom – the ones you buy first and everything else follows. While you may settle for a cheap basket bin, you shouldn’t do the same with the main accessories. The showerhead and the faucets, for example, must be top, in terms of quality, to stand the test of time. That’s why you should start with those in relation to your budget and carry on with the rest. One can do for a while with poor quality or no rug but it’s best to have good bathroom lighting from the start, right?
