Visited your relatives recently and were amazed looking at their restroom and the bathroom accessories? And now you want the same in your home? Of course, you cannot reconstruct your bathroom on the go, but certainly, you can change its décor to have the same feeling as your relative’s one. And you know, the joy of having a refreshed bath can increase if you have well-designed bathroom accessories.
Even when we are constructing our homes, we genuinely want the restroom area to be more lavished because we all want that 10 15 minutes to be relaxed and satisfied. So, here are the essential and must-have bathroom accessories for your bathroom to give it a more pleasant, aesthetic, and elegant look. And also, make your life much easier by well organising the bathroom supplies.
List of Must-Have Bathroom Accessories
I would recommend a suction soap holder rather than buying a regular soap dish because you can anytime change its location and take it along when you move to another place. Apart from these two reasons, suction soap holders give your bathroom an elegant look as it comes with beautiful designs and you can buy a double-layered holder to keep soap in one and a sponge in another or anything, as per your convenience.
Corner Shelf is one of the essential bathroom accessories to keep regularly used shampoo bottles, oil bottle, bath sponges, and to hang loofahs, etc. If you have a baby in your house, then there will be more accessories and much space will be needed in your bathroom. It will help if you consider buying a suctioned shelf as it looks fantastic and gives a luxurious look to your bathroom.
How about keeping shower gel or shampoos at arms reach? Yes, it is possible with the shower caddy. You can also call it a shower basket or shower hangers. So, you can hang this shower caddy on the shower pipe and enjoy your refreshing bath without looking for anything our of your reach. It will be helpful if you buy zinc plated steel or stainless steel to avoid rusting.
After a day of tiring work or getting into the active mode for result in the morning, nothing is worthwhile as a shower. Overhead showers are one of the best and useful bathroom accessories. They are good for rejuvenating your body and relax tired muscles. Modern showerheads can deliver water in various modes like massage, mist, jets, rain or any combination of these to add to your showering experience.
Handheld showers are required in your bathroom as you can use it for bathing kids and pets, and you can control the direction of flow. Handheld showers are best for personal hygiene as well. Moreover, they are favourable for cleaning the bathroom tiles as it has better reach and offers more pressure than the showerhead. So, it is one of the best bathroom accessories that you should consider buying.
Shower curtains play a crucial role in keeping your bathroom neat after a shower. It’s a fact that during the shower, water is splashed all over the bathroom floor. Shower curtains will contain the water droplets in the shower area and can save you and kids from slipping. Shower curtains also give you a sense of privacy by separating the shower area and adds to the aesthetic look of your bathroom.
The bath mat is one of the essential bathroom accessories in your bathroom. These mats are necessary for safety in the bathroom as they protect slipping and falling. Make sure the bottom material of mat is sturdy and anti-skid with suction cups so that it stays in its place and you can sing and dance while you bath without any worries of falling. Some mats have acupressure points also which allows good blood circulation in your body.
A clogged drain in the bathroom is a messy encounter. And hair falling is a prevalent issue nowadays. So, waterflooding with hairs swimming on your bathroom floor; is a helpless feeling. Calling a plumber to fix can be a costly affair. Therefore, to avoid clogging of drains, it is recommended to use a hair catcher on drains that will keep hairs and other solid particles going into the drain hole.
In addition to the shower mat, you should have grip bars near the shower to avoid slipping due to soapy water on the floor. You can also use grip bars near the commode so elders can easily get up and near the bathtubs to quickly get out of it. Make sure you select grip bars with texture so that your hand should not slip from the bar.
The glass shelf is another essential accessory for your bathroom as it provides extra storage to the mini chest and corner shelves. They can be used to keep hand towels, bathroom cleaning supplies or anything you want to store in the washroom. You can install them under the sink and over the commode area to keep the extra toilet paper tissues. Apart from storage, glass shelves give a pleasant appearance to the bathroom.
Towel Hanger has its importance in the bathroom. You can hang separate hand towels for every member of your family on the towel hanger. It uniquely utilises the space. You do not need to fold the towel and can hang it wet to let it dry itself on the hanger. Plus, you can unwind it into four hangers. And when not in use, close them to make space. It is a worth buying accessory for your bathroom.
Door hanger is one of the must-have bathroom accessories. I have visited many places where I didn’t find the door hanging hooks to hang my clothes or towel, and I had much inconvenience. And this is when I got to understand that it is a must-have item for your bathroom. It is also advisable to invest in sturdy and robust hanging hooks so you can hang heavy items as well.
No morning starts without brushing your teeth. And maintaining good hygiene to your toothbrush is equally important. So, you don’t have to place it anywhere on the countertop when you can invest a bit on the toothbrush holder. It will help in organising and keeping the countertop clean and tidy. You can also go for the one which has lid cover on it. And there are toothbrush covers also wherein you can put the brush inside, close it and place in the holders.
Liquid Soap Dispenser
The soap dispenser is essential to maintain hygiene after using the washroom. A rightly chosen dispenser can add to the aesthetics of your bathroom decor. You can choose from a compact dispenser that can be placed by the sink, or wall-mounted option can be selected to save space on the counter.
Mini Chest of Drawers
My favourite one! It gives an elegant look when placed in the countertop of your bathroom. Some of the big-sized drawers can be kept directly on the floor. And if you don’t keep many bathing accessories in your bathroom, then investing in a mini chest is a good option. You can keep shampoo bottles, conditioners, etc. in the space provided and mini makeup accessories in the drawers.
Hairstyling Storage Chest
Hairstyling tools include straightening and curling irons, hairdryer, rollers, clips and many more. It is not possible to keep all of them on your bathroom counter as it will take too much space and will be a messier place to find every item quickly. A storage chest will help you save space and keep all the things organised. It will take significantly less space on your counter and can store all of your hair styling equipment at one place.
Tissues are one of the primary and essential accessories not only for the bathroom but for every area of your home like kitchen, living room, bedroom. To clean the commode seat, countertop, or anything you want to clean around, you can use tissues. Spend in highly absorbent tissues and get a beautiful tissue box for your bathroom to give it an impressive look.
Toilet Roll Holder
Though we Indians don’t usually use the toilet paper as we are brought up that way, and we use water to clean up. However, nowadays, every bathroom is made with space provided for toilet paper. And if you use toilet paper, toilet roll holder is a necessity for you. Some holders have a small shelf included where you can place the mobile phones or any other small accessory on it.
Cleaning the toilet almost every day or an alternative day is essential to maintain personal health and good hygiene. So, toilet brushes with strong blisters are a must-have accessory to clean the toilet efficiently. Always make sure you buy a toilet brush with a stand, so it does not touch anywhere else. Also, cleaning the toilet brush is equally essential. You can rinse it with hot water or can soak it in bleach water for an hour once a week.
To ensure the bathroom waste is dumped right in place and does not pollute the surrounding, dustbin in your bathroom is a must. Always make sure that you are throwing away every waste in the bin only, not in the commode to avoid clogging. Moreover, it would be best if you chose a dustbin with a lid cover to prevent the spreading of odour. And also with a foot pedal so you don’t have to touch it to open.
