Let’s take a look at each of these.

Toothbrush Holders

A handy and functional bathroom accessory is a toothbrush holder. Particularly useful in family homes, a toothbrush holder comprises a cup-like holder attached to the wall with a fixing.

Toothbrush holders are cheap and straightforward to instal into tiled or plasterboard walls. They are available in various designs and finishes, and you’re sure to find one in the same range as your bathroom tapware.

Toilet Paper Holders

While not a necessity, having a toilet paper holder in reach of a toilet adds tones of practicality to a bathroom. Not only is it highly functional, but it is also hygienic. No one wants to pick a roll of toilet paper off the floor where it’s been sitting with germs and dust. Nor do they want to touch something that many others have touched.

Toilet paper holders are inexpensive and can be installed very easily into tiles, plasterboard, and the side of vanity cabinets. Moreover, the design of toilet paper holders has come a long way over the years. Today, they are sleek, elegant and will add a touch of sophistication to a toilet area.

Towel Accessories

Towels and bathrooms go hand in hand. Towels are a necessity for showering and bathing and come in a range of sizes and options. There’s hand towels, bath towels, face washers, and bath mats, and each needs some form of support to make them accessible. Otherwise, they’d all be on a pile on the floor, which is inconvenient and unhygienic. Dry towels would mix with wet towels, and there would be no organisation. Towels need somewhere to hang to dry after use and be accessible for each intended use. i.e., hand towels need to be in arms reach from the basin; towels should be accessible from the shower to prevent walking wet across the bathroom etc.

Thankfully, there is more than one solution within bathroom accessories.

As with the various types of bathroom towels, there are multiple types of towel accessories. There are hand towel holders and round towel rings for hand towels and face washers, towel rails and towel shelves & rails for bath towels and bath mats.

Towel accessories are designed to be easy to install on any tile or plasterboard surface. You will find a suitable design to match your bathroom tapware to continue the design style throughout the space. While you don’t need one of each, your bathroom should, at the very least, have a standard towel rail installed. Also not mentioned above, robe hooks are also a handy alternative to hang up towels.

Robe Hooks

Often overlooked, robe hooks are a fantastic bathroom accessory to hang multiple things. While intended to hang up bathroom robes, they are also great for hanging up towels after use and outfits that you will change into after showering.

Robe hooks can be mounted on the back of the bathroom door or a wall within the bathroom, tiled or plasterboard. As with other bathroom accessories, they come in various styles and finishes to match your bathroom tapware and other bathroom accessories.

Bathroom Shelves

One of the biggest problems with many bathrooms is the lack of storage space. While vanities store all your bathroom essentials, what about towels and shower products? Bathroom shelves provide such a solution. There are various bathroom shelves, including towel shelves, glass shelves, corner shelves, and double shelves. While you can install bathroom shelves anywhere in a bathroom, towel shelves are best installed on a bathroom wall, while the others offer the highest functionality in the shower.

Most showers have flush walls, void of a ledge or niche to store soap, shampoo, conditioner and shavers. Installing a small shelf in the shower creates a practical and attractive storage solution.

Bathroom shelves are available in many styles and designs, including steel and glass. They are designed to be installed into any wall surface, including tiles. You’re sure to find one to meet your

needs and match your shower and bathroom tapware.

Bathroom Mirrors

Other bathroom accessories may not be necessity items, but a bathroom mirror certainly is. A mirror is more than an accessory to aid one’s vanity. It is vital for applying makeup, shaving, and, yes, checking one’s appearance. Mirrors are practical and serve as a focal point to a bathroom design. They also help increase light which, in turn, can help make small bathrooms appear larger.

Today, bathroom mirrors are available in many designs, shapes, sizes and styles. There are round mirrors, square mirrors, rectangle mirrors, and oval mirrors, to name a few. While these mirrors are all common choices, shaving cabinet mirrors are another option. Shaving cabinets, comprising a cabinet with mirror doors,  are a handy addition to any small bathroom lacking storage space. They provide the practicality of a mirror and the functionality of a storage unit.
