Must-Have Accessories For Any Bathroom

From the master to the guest and even the powder room, the bathrooms in your home are some of the most neglected spaces. The best way to bring life into any bathroom is through the use of accessories! Discover the simplest ways you can incorporate your personality into a bathroom while keeping the decor cohesive with the rest of your home.

Make the space bigger with mirrors. A mirror is one of the best accessories for any bathroom that’s on the smaller side. Their basic reflective properties are ideal for personal grooming, but mirrors can be a focal point of your decor. Bold, framed mirrors can act as a work of art on a bathroom wall. Because you can find mirrors in all sorts of shapes, sizes and models, it’s easy to implement this accessory into your existing design.

Implement a trash can. There’s nothing worse than going into a bathroom that lacks a trash can. Very personal things go on in any bathroom, some of which require the use of a trash can. There are a variety of stylish trash cans, from frosted glass to decorative bamboo. Find one that matches the decor of your bathroom, is moisture resistant, and large enough to collect a few days worth of trash.

Dress up the space with a floral arrangement. One of the simplest, most affordable ways to incorporate flowers into your home design is to purchase fresh arrangements. Whether you use faux flowers or real ones, a colorful flower arrangement can wake up any bathroom. For springtime, try a collection of lilies, daisies and lamb’s ear on for size!

Lay out bath mats. Decorative mats are designed to beautify a space, but they also serve a functional purpose. They help absorb any runoff water from a bath or shower and help prevent slip and fall accidents. Bath rugs come in a wide range of colors, materials, shapes and sizes, making it easy to find one that fits your decorating style. Add a splash of color to your bathroom with a bright bath mat, or introduce a pattern into your décor with a textured rug.

Buy a soap dispenser set. Sure, you can purchase the plastic bottles of hand soap that get tossed once they’re empty, but a quality soap dispenser instantly classes up the look and feel of your bathroom! If you’re really going for the look of luxury, you can install a dispenser for shampoos, conditioners, and even lotion, too.This update is easy to implement, but it can make all the difference in the appearance of your bathroom. Opt for a set that includes a coordinating tissue dispenser, soap dish, and toothbrush holder for a more complete look.

Install a jewelry rack. Instead of the traditional towel rack, designate a space to keep your jewelry. The bathroom is where you start and end your day, so it only makes sense to keep your jewelry and accessories at the ready. Plus, even when it’s not in use, a jewelry rack can serve as a decorative element in the space, showcasing your personal style and taste. If your bathroom features a large sink-top, you can keep display your jewelry collection there as well. Hooks are another option, and can be easily mounted to a wall or over a door to hang scarves, headbands, and more.

Incorporate these must-have accessories into your bathroom décor and watch your space transform into a new and polished look. For more tips and tricks on bathroom decorating, contact Carmen Mackey today.
