Before you start shopping, take a good, long look at your bathroom and see if the above accessories are there. Apart from these there are a multitude of other accessories that you can add, but if you’re on a budget, like most of us, you need to pick and choose carefully.
Some accessories are customized, that is, they’re special made for a special purpose. Good examples would be heated towel racks for humid areas, and guard rails in the shower and bath for the elderly folk who have difficulty in moving about.
To make sure that your bathroom looks good as well as functional, it is quite important that the accessories in the bathroom should match each other. They also have to complement the fittings. For example, consider a bathroom that has a silver faucet while the other accessories are gold. This gives an impression of a mismatch to the visually tuned. So always try to match the accessories with fittings.
You also need to consider style as an element. It will not be helpful if you have ornate accessories in a bathroom that is contemporary in its outlook. It is always better to err on the side of simplicity rather than to overdo it. You’ll find accessories which have clean, clear and simple lines to be more timeless and less fussy. Again the bottom-line here is not to overdo it with loads and loads of them; otherwise you’ll have clutter on your hands.
The material used in the accessories has huge impact. The most popular is a silver-finish, followed by chrome. Chrome, however has the drawback of peeling and flaking. Nowadays people go in for either shiny finishes or Matt finishes. For those who are environmentally conscious, it is important that they use stainless steel, because it has the green nod. On top of that, it does not have to sacrifice style for the greater good of functionality. Stainless steel is recyclable, 100%.
Whenever you go shopping for bathroom accessories, make it a point to ask different dealers for free quotes so that you get a fair idea of what the market price is like. After all, it is your hard earned money as well as a future investment.
