Bathroom Accessories

Even though decorating a bathroom isn't that glamorous, there are many different ways to add color and character to this otherwise dull, sterile space. Bathroom necessities, including shower curtains, bath mats, towels and mirrors, can brighten up a space, while shower caddies, soap dispensers, tissue boxes and glass canisters can help with storage. As you get ready to revamp your bathroom space, be sure to remember all the essentials.

Shower curtains


Both functional and decorative, shower curtains will add an interesting visual element to your bathroom while also protecting your walls from excess moisture. They come in a variety of materials, including plastic, vinyl or fabric, and range in style from quirky and punchy to classic and traditional. Vinyl curtains are usually cheaper than fabric shower curtains, but likely will not last as long. If you choose to go with a fabric shower curtain, don’t forget to also purchase a shower liner to protect your curtain’s material over time.

Bath mats and rugs


Bath mats and rugs will provide extra protection for the floors, and provide a soft, warm spot for your feet while you’re brushing your teeth or just stepping out of the shower. You will generally want to place your rug in close proximity to both the shower, bath and vanity. If you have a small bathroom, it’s possible only one rug will reach, otherwise you may consider purchasing multiple bath mats. Choose a color scheme or theme for your bathroom, and consider matching the color of your mats to match. Purchase a bath mat with a liner beneath it for the shower area to prevent slipping.

Towels


Besides being above all functional, towels also add color and texture to your bathroom’s design. Choose your towels carefully, paying attention to color and design, so that they are cohesive with your bathroom’s theme. Instead of hiding them in a linen closet, display them in the open on shelving or hung from racks. In terms of material, cotton is generally the best choice: durable and absorbent, it’s soft against skin while also allowing it to breathe.

Bathroom hardware


Whether you’re starting from scratch or remodeling a bathroom, pay attention to the hardware. A simple change in cabinet pulls and curtain rods can make all the difference in your space. There are limitless styles to choose from depending on the look you want to create in your bathroom. Choose Lucite pulls for a chic and timeless look, or bronze curtain rods for traditional, dramatic appeal. Consider choosing all of your hardware with the same finish to create cohesion throughout your bathroom design.

Bathroom decor


Pull the look together with soap dishes, dispensers, baskets and furnishings that complement each other and fit within the theme. Consider artwork for the walls or sculptures for open counter space. Add candles or incense to create a relaxing and inviting aroma, or plants for a touch of nature. You can even find a decorative shower caddy or beautiful mirror for added interest.

Fabric 84" Extra Long Shower Curtain, White
Bathroom Accessories
December 9, 2016
Quality product for the cost: This liner hangs behind a fabric outer curtain and they hang beautifully together. I'm very happy with the material and weight. The grommets (rather than thread-bound hook holes) are a plus. As with many light weight curtains, it tends to be drawn into the shower space once the water is running. This isn't a problem with deeper showers like the one we have. In my opinion, it's a quality product for the cost.
Selma Oil Rubbed Bronze Boutique Tissue Box Cover

Attractive Rubbed Bronze Tissue Cover: This product is exactly what I was looking for and it matched all the bath hardware but I did not give 5 stars because bottom edge has rough places that would scratch my new countertop and I had to place a silicone pad on the bottom.

Beautiful, Sturdy and Great Deal!: We purchased this Javanese Teak shower bench from Houzz, saving $36.00 off the next best price we could find online. This bench is well-made, sturdy and looks like it will last 25 years. Shipping was lightning fast, was at our door 3 days after ordering. A great experience, Thank You Houzz!
WaterFall Soap Saver by Trademark Home

Cool design: Great design so the soap does not sit in water and dissolve. My only complaint is it is very light weight plastic, so if you hit it, it will easily fall. An improvement would be if it had suction on the bottom of it, so it stays put. Keeping it though, as it does the trick.
100% Cotton 2 Piece Reversible Rug Set by Lavish Home, White
Bathroom Accessories
January 23, 2016
Good Quality, Color not quite as expected: Rug color was more red than expected. I'd call it Claret, more than Burgundy; but it's hard to find true burgundy these days. Also got the long bath rug (24x60) and perfect match to it. Have not washed them, so don't know how they will hold up, or how quickly they will fade.

InterDesign Mildew-Free Water-Repellent Fabric Shower Curtain/Liner
Bathroom Accessories
April 23, 2017
Works perfectly: This is a far superior shower curtain liner, not plastic but polyester, machine washable as often as you like. Doesn't feel freaky if you touch it by accident. Replacing an off-white with white as my shower curtain is white. Probably makes not difference to guests but it does to me from inside the shower.

The product was on time with notification follow through and experience of order was ideal. Found it, loved it and the price and it was at the client's door when expected.: The shower curtain was just right for my client. It was exactly what she hoped it would be to help redefine her tired bathroom. The product was easy to shop from description and online images, no surprises when it arrived!
