Whether you’re adding character to a new bathroom, or looking to refresh a rental space that doesn’t feel like you, bathroom accessories are the answer. A well placed plant pot, jazzy shower curtain, or even a new mirror can instantly transform a space.
That’s what this guide is all about, giving you an overview of the little things you can do with bathroom accessories to give your space that ‘wow’ factor. Helping put a smile on your face whenever you walk in the room.
Here’s our list of the best bathroom accessories and how to use them. You can also use this as a checklist when it comes to refreshing your bathroom décor.
There are so many different plants that look dreamy in a bathroom. From trailing beauties on high shelves and storage, to windowsill light-lovers and sprawling floor ferns. Our recommendations for bathroom-loving plants are spider plants, ferns, bromeliads, wandering dudes, peace lilies and even orchids. Anything that can handle high humidity – make sure you check how much light they need before you choose one. Be sure to add colourful plant pots for stylish bathroom accessories that aid plant drainage too.
Just like plants and pots, art can give a room that colourful lift – especially if you’ve got a fairly neutral base colour palette to work with. Whether you love fun bathroom-related puns, famous art prints, or more modern illustration, make sure you choose good quality frames. This will mean your prints don’t get damaged in high humidity. You may even consider taping the back of the frames too. Frames can also become bathroom accessories in themselves by adding paint or choosing a decorative style.
Another way to add artistic flair is with a mirror. Classic bathroom accessories, you may think of adding a mirror as just a necessity, but it doesn’t mean you can’t give it some personality. Choose mirrors with LED lights, Hollywood- style lights, useful storage, funky shapes, designs and colours – anything that shows off your individual style.
