When we first move out of our home and start our lives either alone or with a partner, most of us are slow to invest in things like bathroom accessories. We may start with a soap dish and a toothbrush holder, but most of us don’t go a lot further than that. Maybe we buy a few matching towels to put out when company comes over, but for the most part, bathroom accessorizing is not a high priority.
As you become older and start wanting to make a better impression on people, you realize how important your home is and how it actually reflects you as a person. Bathroom accessories may seem like of minor importance, but they are one of the most noticed items in your home. This is because when your company comes over, the only time they are actually alone and able to inspect what you have is when they are in the bathroom. And, they do look around!
So, when you are looking for bathroom accessories, the first thing you should do is consider who will be in the bathroom. Most of us have one bathroom that we use as our day-to-day bathroom and one that stays primarily untouched for company. Because each of these bathrooms has a different function, they should be designed differently. The “company” bathroom should really reflect your style and be luxurious for your company. The nice towels, the nice fixtures, and the nice amenities all go in this bathroom.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have nice bathroom accessories in your day-to-day bathroom! When you are choosing accessories for your bathroom, you need to make sure that they are sturdy and easy to clean. By choosing a bathroom set – cup, toothbrush holder, soap dish, etc. – that is dishwasher-proof, you can save a lot of time. And, by making sure all of these items are clean, you will prevent germs from spreading through your household.
Other accessories such as towel racks, tissue boxes, places for extra towels or guest soaps are always nice to have and will make you feel better about your bathroom. Because your bathroom is such a busy place, though, make sure there isn’t too much clutter. The less you have on your counter, the better. Just make sure that all of the items match the color scheme, style, and theme of your bathroom.
You may be tempted to go to the high end department stores to look for bathroom accessories, and there is no doubt that you won’t find some spectacular items there, but you will be paying way too much. By shopping online or in a discount store, you will have a better variety of items to choose from and by saving money, you will even be able to change your bathroom with the seasons or for special occasions. After all, a nice holiday motif is great in the winter when family comes to stay, and when they’re gone, you can go back to your everyday accessories and towels.
