Why is it that of all of the rooms that we decorate in our homes, the bathroom décor is always the most difficult? Perhaps because it’s a small room and we feel the décor is limited, or do we feel that it is not a room that is noticed as much as the other rooms in the house. The latter is not true; the bathroom is noticed not just by family members, but by guests as well. You can test this out by placing a small item in your bathroom and see how many people mention it to you. Perhaps because it is a small room, everything you put into it becomes noticeable.
If you want to decorate your bathroom in a décor that is friendly, warm, and ageless, then you want to choose contemporary bathroom accessories and design. The sleek modern lines of contemporary accessories will keep our bathroom looking elegant and ageless. Unlike traditional accessories, contemporary accessories do not go out of style. You can always make them look new by adding or detracting items in your bathroom around the accessories. You do not have to change the accessories if you change the towels, shower curtain, or rugs by making them more colorful either plain or patterned.
You can add wall hangings, pictures, and mirrors in a contemporary style to match your bathroom accessories. You generate a theme with the pictures that may be whimsical or elegant. Your contemporary bathroom accessories can be of stainless steel, ceramic, wood, or glass. There are many smart accessories such as, toothbrush holders in stainless steel, beautiful bottles for mouthwash, bubble bath, or bath oils, whimsical holders for floss or nail clippers, and more. You can mix stainless steel and glass in your new contemporary bathroom which will make the room shine and sparkle, yet it will be easy to maintain and keep clean.
If you have a large bathroom, then plants that stand on the floor may add to the contemporary look of your bathroom. A small vase with flowers is also a great contemporary bathroom accessory. Simply put, the reason you would choose to have contemporary bathroom accessories in your bathroom is that they can always be dressed up or dressed down, and that the sleek, smooth contemporary look never goes out of style as long as you change the room around the accessories.
Build a theme in your contemporary bathroom with the one accessory that we all take for granted, and that is the shower curtain. You can build a Disney theme, beach theme, science fiction theme, travel to Paris or California theme, or any other theme by putting in a novelty shower curtain. The novelty shower curtains are done in good taste and will not offend anyone, but will make your contemporary bathroom a fun place. If you have children, the Disney or beach theme would make an ideal contemporary bathroom. What’s more, you will not have the usual bath time fight with the children.
Different people have different preferences when it comes to bathroom accessories set. You may have noticed that others base it solely on the price. Some settle for cheap sets while there are people who won’t be satisfied unless every single bathroom accessory comes from a designer set. There’s nothing wrong with going for luxury bathroom accessories as long as you have enough money for it.
And also, there is nothing wrong with going for the cheaper ones. With the current economy still recovering, people are becoming more and more conscious of what they buy and how they spend. But you need not to focus on costs alone. You should also think of what you want and what you believe is best for your bathroom. After all, it should give you the greatest comfort you deserve and that will just happen if you approve of everything in your bathroom.
There are numerous designs of bathroom accessories set available to choose from. Some people pick styles and themes that are contemporary to suit the modern times. Others buy some kind of historic, medieval and age-old designs. You may opt to have a nature theme or rustic or beach. It’s all up to you.
While choosing according to the design is fine, there are those who instead of going for a particular theme just purchase their sets of bathroom accessories according to the materials they are made from. The following are five of the most popular choices of materials today:
If you want to go traditional and a bit sophisticated, you can choose bath accessories made of wood. Wooden accessories will especially look great if you have a simple bathroom theme like white or shades of white for everything. This is good for the rustic or nature theme as well.
One of the reasons why people prefer ceramic bathroom accessories is their durability. They are commonly cheap too, which makes them a practical buy. Just keep in mind to purchase those with nice and elegant designs. This is because ceramics don’t have that kind of stylish effect compared to wood and glass wherein the latter two can stand out all by their own even without intricate designs.
Just like what was mentioned earlier, glass accessories naturally give off an ornamental look and feel to any room they are in. That’s part of the reason why glass is a famous choice even for bath add-ons. The only thing you have to worry about is how you carefully handle these items. Make sure you use tempered glass because that’s more durable. They are not a good choice though if you are shopping for kids bathroom accessories.
This is the strongest material among the five. Metal bath accessories can be made of copper or brass and are able to last for a long time. They also match well with your stainless steel bathroom cabinets, if you are using those. Mostly, homeowners get them for their proven durability.
Just a bit more sophisticated than glass, the crystal bath add-ons will surely make your bathroom shine and sparkle. They are known to provide a very relaxing feeling and that they are considered as one of the most, if not the most, decorative among the bunch.
