In this photograph, you can see some examples of bathroom soap dispensers, toothbrush holders and a shaving set holder. The bathroom accessory that sits on top of bathroom vanities is usually made of ceramic or plastic.

The silver and light green soap dispensers are plastic and work very well. I like being able to see through the green plastic at the contents.

I especially like the ceramic examples because of the strong, vibrant, reflective colors of the green and orange and the added gold paint highlights, these add a feeling of richness, warmth and glamour to your bathroom as well as helping brighten by reflecting color and light.

White and gold works beautifully in an all white bathroom.
However, if you have opted to paint your bathroom walls (or even just one wall as a contrast wall) a strong color, you might like to think about white and gold or cream and gold as bathroom accessory colors. If this options works at your home, you could end up with a very classy, individual and intimate bathroom.

Accessorize Bathroom Vanities

These accessories will be those we use daily so we are more likely to leave them readily available on our bathroom vanity.:

  • Toothbrush holder
  • Soap Dispenser or Soap Dish
  • Nail Brush
  • Flannel
  • Cotton Wool Holder
  • Shaving set holder

Bathroom Towels

By far the easiest purchase to add spashes of colors are the towels, if you are using only one main strong color, you could opt for a few different shades of your strong color for your towels, even variations like navy blue and medium blue and aqua. There is nothing quite like a stack of fluffy new towels to add an immediate sense of warmth to your bathroom.

Natural Materials
- for a Trendy Look

  • Using natural materials gives a huge benefit to the look and feel of any bathroom design, size and bathroom color scheme.

    Distressed pine in white or pale colors give you shabby chic - darker woods give your bathroom a rich look and feel, but have you thought of using less common materials for your bathroom accessories?

    For something totally unique look out for beautiful banana leaf bath accessory sets - it's just an example of different materials you could choose - but the deep brown tones of dried banana leaf products really are beautifully offset by any white and cream bathroom tiling.

Try to choose those items that you and your family are going to need without overfilling your bathroom.

Choose colors and styles that compliment each other and your bathroom color scheme and theme.

Make up your list and you are ready for some really fun bathroom accessory shopping...

Modern Chrome Finishes

Modern chrome and stainless steel finishes are popular with modern bathroom decor mainly because they are clean lined and reflective.

An Over-Door Shower Caddy hangs over your shower door and are a great use of space, enabling you to stock your favourite items for both inside and outside the shower unit.

Interior shower grid baskets are perfect for your favourite shampoos and conditioners, soaps, razor etc. Hook are great for a washcloth and pouf.

The part of the caddy on the outside of your shower door should have more hooks for towels, or for your bathrobe - all very conveniently within easy reach.
