Tips on Choosing the Right Accessories for Your Bathroom

Since bathrooms are usually places that had to sacrifice when it comes to square feet, accessories for the bathroom need to pass a strict selection process. Overcrowded bathrooms look like stands at a flea market and it is hard to believe their owners want this most sensitive part of their home (in hygienic terms) to look like a garage sale in poor suburbia. To cut a long story short, bathrooms should never be turned into storage rooms, but equipped only with most necessary, important items.


The first thing that every bathroom has to have is appropriate flooring. The least expensive and pretty useful accessory for the floor is the bathroom mat. The path that allows you walk on in the bathroom must be properly marked and protected. The first reason is health-related. Since bathroom floors are usually covered with tiles, which are not actually the warmest surface in the world and people tend to be barefoot in the bathroom, floor mats serve as feet protectors. As well all know, numerous health problems start from feet. Another reason for having a mat on the bathroom floor is the aesthetic one. When somebody comes to your home as a guest, you want them to feel comfortable in every part of your home. The bathroom is complete when there is a mat on the tiled path.


Bathrooms should not be brimming with sufficient cloths. Towels are definitely among the most important accessories in the bathroom. As far as the number of items on the bathroom door and surrounding hook on the walls is concerned, a towel per a member of family and a bathing robe is just enough. Any items beyond this number of items will look like space limiters. Apart from that, another essential cloth for the bathroom is a hand-wiping towel. In some families all members use the same towel for that purpose. In some others, everybody has their own. Whatever the case is, the best option in such an individualized hand-wiping-towel approach is hanging small towels on extra hooks.


Hooks are must-have accessories, indeed. However, do not get too hooked on hooks, since they also lead to many unnecessary towels and cloths in the bathroom. Sometimes double hooks are a convenient option. For instance, one double hook can be used by children and one by their parents for hanging separate hand-wiping towels. You can be quite creative even with small hooks.

Occasional Cosmetic Actions

Knowing how important it is that the bathroom stays the cleanest part of your home, it is necessary to make certain changes in its design from time to time. This tip might seem pricey and complicated. However, the more things you change at once, the smaller the expenses are, tell us renowned Sydney-based bathroom renovation services.

To get rid of mold around the windows or in the far damp corners of the ceiling, you should paint the walls again. However, if you are doing that, you should also check the condition of the pipes, too. If some of them need to be replaced, it would be a shame to ruin newly repainted walls. Let your bathroom blossom and glow equipped with only the necessary things and enjoy that oasis of cleanness and hygiene.
