Top Trendsetting Bathroom Accessories
November 2, 2018

The final touch to any bathroom makeover is adding accessories to make the room more attractive and functional. Traditional and contemporary accessories are being introduced every day to enhance the bathroom’s overall look. Check out some popular bathroom accessories below!


Bath Mats

Many different styles of bath mats are being found in today’s bathrooms: shag rugs, wooden mats and more! Most people tend to buy the microfiber memory foam mats because they are non-slip, soft, highly absorbent, machine-washable and dry faster than most materials. Plus, they come in numerous colors, so your bathroom can still maintain its color scheme.

Before-You-Go Toilet Sprays

Yup, if you’re not aware of this new generation of odor controllers, you should be. Unlike traditional sprays that mask odors already airborne, the essential oils in these products trap the bad odors in the bowl. A few spritzes create an invisible film on the water’s surface which releases the oil’s sweet fragrance on contact and keeps foul smells underwater. Brilliant!

Trays and Baskets

Instead of hanging from rings and bars, towels are being folded on a tray or in a basket. It’s not a new idea, but by using new materials you’ll get a fresh look. Try wicker to be casual or silver for elegance.

House Plants

Go green and freshen the bath with live plants. They love the atmosphere and you’ll love the way they make you feel.


Tissue Holder with Shelf

Need a convenient area to place that toilet spray or a small plant? Look for toilet paper holders with a ledge, available in multiple styles and finishes. Let’s be real- these can even be used for holding your phone while you go!

Digital Temperature Control

No more scalding or freezing water to start your shower. Smart devices can keep the water at the temperature you preset.

Mood Lighting

It can come built into the shower head, recessed into the ceiling, or nestled inside a candle. Lighting in soft and bright colors alike can set the mood in the bath with a simple click or voice command.

Toilet Nightlight

The newest bathroom night light hooks on the toilet bowl rim and turns on by detecting motion. Then, it creatively illuminates the room and water in a variety of colors. This feature is great for anyone who doesn’t like to go in blind on a quick bathroom break at night.
