Decor Tips and Suggestions: Give Your Bathroom True Polish with Accessories

The bathroom is a very important part of your home and the place where you spend quite a big amount of time taking care of yourself and getting ready for the day. For that reason, it should be a nice and functional space. That can be easily achieved with accessories. Besides making the room more functional, bathroom accessories aid the aesthetic appeal as well. And you don’t need a lot of things, just a few essentials that will give your bathroom a new vibe.

Decorative Bathroom Mirrors

The bathroom mirror has a functional role but it also serves as a decoration. Bath mirrors can make the space seem larger, and although it’s an illusion, it largely improves the overall aspect of the bathroom.

Now, picking a bathroom mirror can be tricky, considering the wide range of bathroom mirrors Australia stores offer. If you’re a minimalist and into everything simple, you can go for the basic oval or rectangle bath mirrors with a thin edge that will basically “melt” with the wall and thus will help you create a minimalist style bathroom. On the other hand, you can also choose a bathroom cabinet that has a mirror incorporated. That way, you can make use of the space behind the mirror and store the things you use frequently like skincare products, hair products, makeup or medications. In fact, the mirror cabinet will be a great way for you to declutter your bathroom and organize your products properly.

Mirror cabinets come in different sizes. You can choose a single door mirror cabinet if your bathroom is small and you don’t want the cabinet to overpower the rest of the decor. Or, if you’re decorating a large bathroom and have a lot of space to fill out, you can go for a classic two or three-door cabinet and enjoy the additional storage space.

Soap Dispensers and Brush Holders

Instead of using soap out of its original plastic packaging, you should invest in a cool set of matching soap dispensers and brush holders. It’s a small detail but one that will make a big difference in your bathroom. And again, you don’t need to have a lot of counter space for them since you can use wall holders and arrange them on the wall. Soap dispenser holders have a sleek, minimalist design and will fit your bathroom nicely.

If you want to stick to the basics, you can choose a white or black soap dispenser holder made of stainless steel. It’s super easy to install and very durable as well. Keep in mind that each and every item in the bathroom is exposed to water and humidity so you need to choose materials that are able to withstand that. You can never go wrong with a soap dispenser holder made of stainless steel since this is a material that doesn’t corrode and hardly gets damaged over time.

When you think about it, wall holders come as an organisational tool. Despite solving clutter problems by storing things in cabinets, you can use them to organize things in plain sight as well. These units work both for small and big bathrooms. Even if you do have a lot of counter space, it will be much better for the visual appearance of your bathroom if you don’t use it as storage when you have other better options.

On the plus side, it will be way easier for you to keep the bathroom nice and clean with all the items organized properly. You won’t have to go back and forth moving everything around so that you clean every surface. Simply put, soap dispenser holders solve a lot of problems.

Soft Bathroom Towels

What would a bathroom be without towels? They are a must-have bathroom item that improves the functionality of your space but at the same time act as decoration because towels nowadays are anything but basic. No matter your taste and preference, you can find the perfect match for your bathroom. And all you need to do is arrange the bathroom towel sets nicely and create a luxurious spa vibe.

Many people are indecisive about where should towels be stored. Some don’t even store towels in the bathroom. But the truth is, you can make space for the towel sets even if you have a small bathroom. And the bathroom will look much better with towels than without. If you lack storage, just add an organizer on an empty wall and roll the towels instead of folding them. That way they’ll look better and you’ll save space.

If you want towels of great quality, you should opt for ones made of cotton/bamboo blend. Cotton/bamboo towels are silky smooth and ideal for people who have skin sensitivities since they’re hypoallergenic. They come in diverse colours and you can match the colour of your towels with the colour of your bathroom. As for their maintenance, cotton/bamboo towels are machine washable – wash them at 40 degrees Celsius. You can also tumble dry them but you shouldn’t iron them. There’s no need for that and that’ll only affect their quality.

Bathroom towel sets consist of multiple towels of different dimensions. You have bath towels, hand towels and face towels. It is best if the towels are matching for the aesthetic appeal although you can always mix and match colours if you want to make things more interesting.

Bathroom Mats

Bathroom mats are great as an accessory but you should also consider getting a mat for practical reasons. Bathroom mats protect the flooring from water at the same time making the bathroom safer for you since the chances of you slipping and falling while walking on mats are minimal. Also, you can’t deny the fact that bathroom mats make walking around the bathroom more comfortable. There’s nothing worse than stepping on a cold or wet surface. But bathroom mats do a great job at solving that problem as well.

Bathroom Laundry Basket

Finally, you should acquire some decorative laundry baskets. You can use them to store the dirty laundry and solve the mess it creates. Laundry baskets are lightweight and don’t take up much space. They are precisely the cherry on top when it comes to bathroom decor. You can pick plain colours or printed baskets that will be the focal point of the room. Either way, they will help you keep the bathroom tidy and organised all the time.
