Types of Bathroom Accessories
Choosing bath accessories may seem like adding the final touches to an updated bathroom, but because there are so many options in a wide variety of styles, it can be overwhelming. For instance, you can accessorize with everything from towel bars and toothbrush holders to footbaths and toilet paper holders. Here, we offer guidance on a few of the most useful accessories for your bathroom -- the ones that provide heavy-duty utility while adding style and panache.
Bathrooms shelves are available for use in the shower and in the bathroom proper. Some designed for shower use can be mounted on the shower wall -- sometimes in a corner configuration -- or hung from the showerhead or over the door. Others mount with a spring-loaded pole. Shelves designed for other areas of the bath can be wall-mount or freestanding and come in a variety of configurations, including over-the-toilet and corner installations.
Hampers can be freestanding, either as a furniture piece in the bathroom or a portable design to transport laundry to the washer. Hampers can also be built in to cabinetry, typically configured as a tilt-out or pullout unit. Whether portable or built-in, some hampers have two or three compartments that allow you to sort laundry by color -- or by person. Portable hampers may have wheels, handles, or a curved shape to fit more comfortably on a hip.

Bathroom scales come in three types: analog, digital, and body composition. Analog scales use a spring-base dial or a counterbalance bar with movable weights, the latter being more accurate. Digital scales use a battery and display weight as a digital number. Body-composition scales use a small electrical pulse to measure body density; they monitor weight as well as muscle mass.

Shower seats are designed for people who prefer not to stand in the shower. Available in different configurations, they range from a simple bath bench to a wheelchair style that can roll directly into a shower. Some seats are designed with a molded plastic seat and aluminum legs that can be used in water without rusting; the legs are often capped with rubber suction cups to keep the chair stable in a shower or tub.
Seat transparent colored polycarbonate or white ABS, supports of die-cast aluminum varnished Made in Italy
Bathroom rugs come in rectangular, oval, circular, and oblong shapes, and they're classified by how they are used. A bath mat is a rug designed for use near the shower or tub; its purpose is to soak up water that might damage a floor as well as to help bathers avoid slipping on a slick, wet floor. A contour rug is shaped to fit around the base of a toilet. And a toilet lid cover, essentially a rug that fits snugly over the lid of a toilet seat, both protects the lid from scratches and carries out the bathroom’s color scheme and decor.

Bathrooms aren’t always the largest of rooms. Here, spouses or siblings might be elbow-to-elbow during the morning rush, so the best accessories are designed to be compact but hardworking. Before you purchase accessories, take careful measurements of available space. Knowing what will fit in your bathroom’s footprint will save you time and help you avoid returning purchases.
In-shower shelves will often be wet, so look for those with rust-resistant finishes such as stainless steel or coated wire. For shelves in the bathroom proper, options include wood, metal, stainless steel, glass, chrome, laminate, and wicker. Shelves designed for corners allow you to turn that oft-unused space into usable storage, and tall tiered units can store lots of towels, lotions, and pretties.
Freestanding and portable hampers come in a wide variety of shapes, styles, and materials. If you use a hamper to help sort laundry, look for one with compartments. If you take laundry to another location or do laundry frequently, consider a hamper with handles or wheels, and think about its size; laundry can be heavy. If your laundry is often damp, pick a model that allows air to circulate, preventing mold and odors. Cloth hampers are lightweight and breathable; plastic hampers are inexpensive and easy to clean; wicker hampers are stylish and breathable; and wooden hampers are designed to be part of your bathroom’s overall design, but the wood can warp. If someone in your family has allergies, choose a smaller plastic hamper with a lid and removable fabric liner.
Counterbalance analog scales -- like you see in the doctor’s office -- provide the most accurate and consistent readings. Digital scales are easier to read than analog scales, particularly if you choose one with a large LED screen or one that provides an audible weight reading. Some digital scales track weigh-ins and remember data for each individual user. Body-composition scales calculate your ratio of fat to muscle, although they have some issues with accuracy. If you’re pregnant or have a pacemaker, avoid these scales, as they use an electrical pulse. Scales have a weight capacity, so choose one that accommodates all of its users. Make sure you can stand on the scale comfortably -- an extra-wide platform is safer. And your weight reading should not change as you shift your position.
Showers chairs have a weight capacity, so be sure to choose one that accommodates all users. Also make sure the model you choose fits within your tub or shower base. Choose a chair with a style and seat width that fits you comfortably. Most chairs are adjustable; when sitting, your feet should be flat on the floor with your knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Models with a backrest and armrests can be more comfortable, and folding chairs are easy to remove from the shower.
Before shopping for bathroom rugs, measure your bathroom’s floor space and consult the dimensions as you shop. If your bathroom is small, you might need only a bath mat near the shower and a rug in front of the sink. Most rugs are made from cotton, nylon, or polyester. While cotton is comfortable and absorbent, nylon and polyester are more durable, making them better candidates for high-traffic bathrooms. Rugs are constructed in two ways: In the first, a rug is manufactured much like carpet, then cut into appropriate sizes and coated with a nonslip backing; in the second, fibers are sewn directly into the rug backing, which assures a longer life.
