Bathroom Accessories – Making the Bathroom More Appealing

Mirrors

Some of the most essential bathroom accessories are the mirrors. You need a mirror for shaving, applying make up and watching your curves. Cleverly used mirrors can help giving your bathroom a look bigger than what it really is.

Linens

Though towels are necessarily needed in the bathroom for drying our body, they may also be treated as aesthetic accessories. Your bathroom looks a lot cleaner and attractive if you spend a bit of time to arrange the towels in the space provided, or hang them down the shower, or on walls. Care needs taken to coordinate the colors of the towels, so that bathroom looks very attractive.

Accessories for the sinks

You would agree that accessories contained in the bathroom and their arrangement reflects the personality of the house owner. Even the usual accessories for the sinks matter. You’ll find a large variety of tissue dispensers, soap dishes and toothbrush holders in pleasing colors and shapes in any store selling bathroom accessories. After fixing these items in your bathroom, you won’t regret having spent the time in choosing these items.

Toilet seat

Another essential item that occupies considerable space in your bathroom is a toilet seat. This item has undergone a lot of changes and is not the same as it used to be all these years. Today’s market offers toilet seats in many useful and attractive designs and colors. In fact, the features of the present toilet seats allow them to qualify as not just an item of utility, but an accessory with decorative value. It is interesting to mention that you can procure toilet seats shaped like pianos or guitars. Moreover, these are tabbed also, so that every person gets his/her own personal seat. Likewise, covers for the toilet seats also come in varying designs.

Shower curtains

You may fail to notice any accessory in a bathroom, but you can’t miss its shower curtain. Well, if you don’t approve transparent curtains made from vinyl, you have the choice of buying one depicting some famous bathroom scenes from the movies, including the one from Psycho. You also have the option of buying shower curtains with geometric designs or animal prints.

Faucet fixtures

These fixtures can be exploited to accessorize your bathroom and give it a different style. Most often, you can find them mounted on the edge of the sink. You can alter the looks of your bathroom and add to its elegance by fixing a wall-mounted model of faucets. You may know that other than chrome faucets, you can get red, gold and black faucets.

Plants

Plants can change the look and feel of any room containing them, and bathrooms are no exception. They also release oxygen that you need in plenty on breathlessly stepping out of your hot shower. However, while selecting plants for your bathroom, care should be taken to buy the varieties that thrive well in humid conditions.

Some Important Facts About Useful Bathroom Accessories

How to Fix Quality Bathroom Accessories to Porcelain Tiles – Keeping You and Your Installer Happy

When you see beautiful bathroom photographs in glossy magazines and bathroom brochures they are often showcasing porcelain tiles, and for good reason. Porcelain tiles are a luxury product. They have a depth of colour and shine that is really sought after for luxury bathroom finishes, and are the first choice bathroom tile for many discerning customers. Porcelain is alleged to be harder than granite! As a material it is strong, tough, waterproof, easy to keep clean and doesn’t need treatments or coatings to make it bathroom proof, so in many ways it is quite unlike the natural stone products it imitates, such as slate, limestone and granite.

So why are installers reluctant to work with Porcelain? First of all, Porcelain isn’t so difficult to cut – in a straight line that is. But when it comes to hole cutting, for running pipes, or for fitting accessories such as mirrors, soap trays etc cutting into Porcelain can be very time consuming, and sometimes costly too. For this reason adding Porcelain to your bathroom specification can add to the cost, not only of installation, but also in breakage allowance. Your installer isn’t going to want to bear the cost of any tiles he breaks trying to drill into them, and he certainly won’t want to pay for your tiler to return to replace any he damages. Fitters who are prepared to do the work may need to purchase extra equipment, hole cutters etc, in order to work with porcelain. Installers may well bump up the price significantly, in order to buy special kits or drill bits, or even as a safety net for damage.

So what happens if you’ve had a gorgeous bathroom installed and luxury porcelain tiles fitted, and you ask your installer if he wouldn’t mind fitting a few lovely accessories you’ve bought before he packs up his tools. This might well be a problem. He’s happy with the work he’s done. The room looks fabulous. It’s doubtful he’s going to want to risk your goodwill, and his fee, by drilling into your perfect porcelain wall tiles. Most likely he’ll do that worrisome sharp intake of breath through the teeth that fitters do just before mentioning a big sum of money, and you’ll be left wondering whether to stump up the cost of a decent home computer to have your accessories fitted, or go without your loo roll holder and soap dishes!

There may well be an answer, and not surprisingly it’s come via our German cousins. No drill bathroom accessories are exactly that. They fix to your wall without drilling. Now before you click away, picturing nasty plastic suction pads or cheap accessories, these accessories are top quality brass bodied products, with proper chrome plated finishes. The fixing system uses proper fixing points with concealed fixings. There’s nothing cheap and nasty about no drill accessories – no tacky or flimsy steel accessories with flaky ‘chrome effect’ painted finishes such as you might find in a DIY shed, or discount store. Instead this is revolutionary German adhesive technology at its best.

No drill accessories use a scientifically advanced adhesive formula that bonds to almost any hard, firm surface. Special fixing adapters are bonded to the surface and then left to cure, after which the accessory itself is firmly clicked and locked on. The accessories have been tested to hold loads of up to 300kg. That’s like the equivalent of a couple of plumbers, a plasterer and a tiler all hanging off your towel rail at the same time without pulling it from the wall! The accessories themselves are fine quality and exquisitely designed for luxury bathrooms. Every bit as good as other premium ranges – and available in a choice of styles to suit all tastes.
