In a bathroom, the toilets are as important as the accessories, since they tend to transform the space, in addition to providing it with functionality.

For this reason, it is very important that we know how to choose our bathroom accessories well and that they are chosen in line with the design and style of the room.

What, then, are the essential bathroom accessories?
To make a good classification of this type of accessories, we must base ourselves on their functionality, on the purpose for which they have been created.

Following this guideline, we could say that the essential accessories in any bathroom are towel racks, toilet roll holders, brushes, soap dishes and toothbrush holders. And, secondly, shelves and hangers.

Let’s see each of them and the multiple possibilities they have!

Towel racks
Perhaps the most indispensable bathroom accessory of all is the towel rack. Who today conceives the bathroom in your home without a towel or leaving it anywhere?

During the day, what we do most when entering the bathroom is wash our hands, so we will have to have a good place to place our towel, taking into account that it is comfortable and accessible.

There are multiple types of towel racks, among which the linear bar stands out (a true classic), which can go on the wall or on the washbasin cabinet.

If instead we want to give our bathroom a more original touch, we can opt for a standing towel rail.

And if the problem is that you have too many towels or you don’t know very well where to locate the towel rack, we can get hold of the so-called storage towel racks, where we can keep the whole family’s towels or some reserve towels that we are not yet using.

Roll holder
Normally the roll holder is undervalued and sometimes we do not give it the importance it deserves .

In fact, many bathrooms directly do not have this accessory or do not use it, leaving the roll anywhere (for example, on the toilet cistern, a classic).

However, it is a piece that can be used a lot and that can be very decorative.

The most basic roll holders consist of a bar that holds the roll (with or without a cover so that the paper cannot be seen). Purely functional.

For a more chic air, we can choose them in a black tone, very fashionable in bathroom faucets, or with fine and subtle shapes.

And if we want to give it a different touch, we can play with them, turning the metal bar into another element, such as ropes or wood.

For their part, the most daring or jokers can opt for a risky design, where the support is a totally different element out of context.

The brushes are usually either combined with the toilet roll holder (or at least in harmony with it) or with the accessories of the washbasin.

Taking this premise into account, the most common is to opt for brushes with a minimalist design (either on the floor or hanging from the wall), which are the most common.

If, on the other hand, our bathroom is in a classic style, with its bathtub free of organic shapes or its champagne-colored taps, we should opt for brushes that do not clash (usually with gold or wood finishes)Bienal Vanity Bathroom

Finally, if that is our purpose, we can also opt for a risky and fun design, especially suitable for children’s bathrooms.

Soap dishes
Liquid soap or soap?
Whatever you are, there is a solution for all tastes.

We are used to the fact that the soap bar plate is on the sink counter, and this is a very common solution because it is functional and practical (the soap is very handy).

However, if we want our bathroom to stand out, we can choose original soap dishes, such as those that are attached to the wall.

If our bathroom is boho style, we can also choose to add the touch to the material, either with texture or color.

If instead we are fans of liquid soap, we also have similar options.

The most common, leaving the soap dispenser on the sink counter:

If, on the other hand, we want to free up space on the countertop, we can put the soap dish anchored to the wall (some of these accessories are adhesive in case of not wanting to drill, although they are not valid for all surfaces and they have to be very good so that they do not take off over time).

Finally, depending on the decorative style that we have in our bathroom, we can choose soap dishes of different shapes (square, round or irregular) or of different materials: (plastic, ceramic, metal or glass).

Brush holder
If the brush is usually combined with the roll holder, of course the brush holder has to match the soap dispenser, since they are two elements that always go together.

If our bathroom is contemporary, we can opt for simple brush holders, where function is more important than shape, whether they are cylindrical or cubic.

To add a chic touch, we can also opt for toothbrush holders that combine two materials, one of them metallic (especially in gold or champagne tones following the current trend).

On the other hand, if our bathroom is more daring or, again, we have a little one at home with their own bathroom, we can opt for animal– shaped toothbrush holders .

Hangers
Although they are not 100% essential, hangers are the best way to hang a bath towel and the ones that come best when we get out of the shower.

The hangers or hooks are a very practical solution that takes up very little space, ideal for small bathrooms, although aesthetically they have the disadvantage that the towels fall “wrinkled”, instead of well folded as in the bar towel racks.

On the other hand, they are the perfect solution (and the only one too) when we dry ourselves with a bathrobe, since these cannot be placed on a conventional towel rack (an aesthetic tip for these cases is to hang it from a closet hanger that in turn is hung from the hook).

Shelves
All bathroom accessories are as important as their order. And for this, the shelves are the best way to organize them.

These help us to collect, in very little space, a large number of bathroom accessories and items.

We can place them on all the walls of the bathroom, either outside or inside the shower, and if we have to reform a bathroom and we design it before starting the work, we can include them in it by means of niches.

If, on the other hand, this is not possible, we can always place our shelves seen afterwards.

As we can see, there are thousands of types of bathroom accessories to achieve a suitable design to your liking.

And if you need a little more inspiration, here are some more tips to get the perfect bathroom with a couple of details.
