From storage to towels and taps, the right style of accessories can really enhance the look of your bathroom and make it a more functional space too. So, make sure to check out our five top tips for accessorising the bathroom…

Eye-catching taps

Basin and bath taps are the most important accessories in your bathroom. Your choice of taps should match the style of the bathroom, and they need to be practical too. Waterfall taps are a really popular option for creating a chic, hotel-spa look. The single lever open spout basin mixer offers fantastic value for money at only £62.00!

If traditional is more your style, then opt for taps with cross head handles, such as the Vico mono basin mixer from CheapSuites, a great buy at only £44.00!

Fit a heated towel rail

Available in an array of designs and sizes, heated towel rails are the ultimate bathroom accessory. A heated towel rail not only enhances the look of the bathroom, but adds a touch of luxury too. Who doesn’t want to grab a warm fluffy towel after a shower on those cold winter mornings?

Heated towel rails in chrome and white finishes blend in with any bathroom décor, but for something more contemporary opt for an anthracite finish instead.

Stylish bathroom storage

Toiletries can quickly clutter up your bathroom, so make sure to incorporate some stylish storage to create a neat, organised space. Wicker or rattan baskets provide a really affordable storage solution, and they can even be customised with spray paint so they match the rest of the bathroom. Shelving and mirrored cabinets offer a really practical solution too. Glass or wood shelving is great for displaying candles or perfume, while a mirrored cabinet fitted above the sink ensures your toiletries are within easy reach.

Add texture and pattern

Introducing different textures and patterns is another way to add extra interest to your bathroom. Patterned tiles with geometric designs are bang on trend at the moment, and are perfect for creating impact. For a more rustic feel, stone is a good choice of material. Why not create a feature wall in the shower, bath or behind the basin for a striking focal point?

Bath mats and rugs are available in a variety of colours and patterns, and they can be used to break up the floor space, as well as add texture to the bathroom. Towels and bath mats can be used to instantly update the bathroom without splashing out too much cash. For more information on bathroom towels make sure to read our buyer’s guide.

Finishing touches

The finishing touches such as a set of matching towels can make all the difference to your bathroom. If your bathroom is mostly white, choose some bright towels to add a pop of colour.

A new mirror can work wonders too, and helps to bounce the light around to enhance a sense of space. Look for mirrors with LED lighting and integrated shelving for extra storage.

Pretty glass jars can be used for cotton wool, and candles recreate a relaxing spa-like feel.
