How to spruce up your bathroom with accessories

If your bathroom is starting to look more shabby than chic but you don’t want to go all out with ripping out the units and starting afresh or you’re working to a budget, reviving your worn our room doesn’t need to be as difficult as it might seem. One of the most simple ways to spruce up your bathroom is to incorporate accessories into the room seamlessly and stylishly.

For example, if you’re going for contemporary and stylishly sleek, as is the trend in bathrooms this year, pick a minimalistic mirror with chrome edging that will blend into the rest of the room easily. Coordinate this with other minor details in the bathroom for an overall neat look, such as a shiny chrome towel rail or even right down to the toilet roll holder.

Sorting out your lighting will make a huge difference to your bathroom. Nobody likes that stark bright white lighting, especially when you use your bathroom for applying make-up, putting in contact lenses or shaving. Choosing smaller lamps or lights with shades to dot around the room will create a more calming atmosphere, making your bathroom a more relaxing place to be. Again, make sure these fit in with the particular theme you’ve chosen as an antique lamp just isn’t going to look right up against a state of the art shower system.

The key with keeping a bathroom looking stylish and on trend whether it’s a big or small room, aside from sticking to a theme, is to choose your accessories wisely so that the room doesn’t look overly cluttered as it can do by choosing a variety of different things. Instead of leaving all your bottles of lotions and potions out on the side, tidy them away into a practical but sophisticated cabinet, and make sure the whole family stashes their toothbrushes into a holder or beaker. Within no time and little cost but thoughtful planning, you’ll have an updated stylish looking bathroom that’s still fully functional and on trend.

6 Piece Inda Touch Accessory Package

A bathroom is not complete until all the last minute touches are put into place such as toilet roll holders, soap dishes etc. Looking through pages in brochures often means that the accessories do not necessarily suit, or match the surroundings and it can be both time consuming and perhaps daunting for some.

We have put together a number of packages which solves the problem and the Inda Touch 6 piece accessory pack is just one example. All essential items are included which comprise: Tumbler Holder 8 x 11h x 13cm (Chrome), Soap Dish 13 x 6h x 15cm (Chrome), Toilet Brush Holder 9 x 40h x 9cm (Chrome), Towel Ring 22 x 24h x 8cm (Chrome), Robe Hook 5 x 5cm (Chrome), and Toilet Roll Holder with Cover 16 x 14h x 7cm (Chrome), all the essentials in one easy package.

Bathroom accessories add luxury and style!

There are two types of bathroom accessories: those that serve a practical purpose, and those that are there just to add a touch of style. Ideally, even practical accessories should reflect your overall design theme, which is something to keep in mind as you shop for these must-have items.

Most people find that the easiest way to shop for these essentials is to buy one of the many accessory packages that are now available. These popular accessory packages come in a variety of options, but one that has proved to be a winner is the Inda Forum 5 piece package and comprises a tumbler holder, soap dish, wall mounted tooth brush holder, a double robe hook and a toilet roll holder all finished in high quality chrome.

Those all important last details in bathroom design

Bathroom accessories are often overlooked when people are making the last but important details when completing a new bathroom or en-suite, but it is these that can pull together what is already a good bathroom, giving it a classy look. Think what would happen without soap dishes, you don’t want a sticky mess on the side of the basin or bath. A towel rail is a must and in today’s modern bathroom a heated one is a priority for many. You would not want the toilet roll sitting on top of the cistern, not when you can get one that looks good and is fully functional too.

It is these little details that can make your bathroom a pleasure to use or a nightmare in the making. If you’ve ever wondered where to store your bathrobe while you are taking a shower, longed for a magnified or illuminated mirror to apply your makeup, or thought there must be an alternative to balancing your toothbrush in a mug on the windowsill then modern bathroom accessories are the way forward.
