Choosing The Right Accessories Makes All The Difference

By . January 16th, 2012. Posted in bathrooms

Decorating your home takes your custom home design to the next level in the Georgetown Washington DC area. No matter how much time and energy is put into the overall structural design of the home, unless the accessories compliment the design aesthetic you are frankly wasting time and money.

Rather than discussing each and every room in your Spring Valley Washington DC home, this blog post will focus on what is perhaps the most overlooked room in the home — the bathroom. Bathroom accessories contribute a great deal to the decor and feel of any bathroom, no matter its size. Through proper selection, accessories in the bathroom you can turn your bathroom in an inviting, cozy and warm room — just like you would in any other room of your luxury custom home.

The availability of bathroom accessories is vast, and finding just the right ones can be daunting for many. But when putting these tips to work, you will quickly discover it does not have to be an unaccomplished task.

Start by considering the space that is available and the plan or theme you are going for. If your current bathroom, or your newly remodeled bathroom, has a simple look you should choose plain bathroom accessories with clean and straight lines. But, if you have a luxurious spa-like bathroom with high-end fixtures and features, more intricate accessories with flare are more appropriate.

Remember that your fixtures, such as sinks, showers and faucets are accessories as well. Bathroom sinks are available in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials these days, you are no longer forced to choose only the color of the boring, traditional sink. Consider your options when choosing a sink; glass, metal, plastic, composite materials and natural stone sinks are all available, and the style you choose will perhaps be the foundation for the rest of your bathroom accessories.

Don’t forget about the lighting. Lighting is perhaps the most important element of bathroom accessory design since it can completely transform the look and feel of the room. Choose lighting fixtures that illuminate the bathroom effectively, while also adding to the overall design. Always place a light directly above the mirror to allow for optimal convenience while shaving, applying make-up or styling your hair.

And last but not least, the other accessories in your luxury bathroom include the soap dish, cabinets, towel rods, shower curtains or doors and even the small somewhat insignificant toothbrush holder is an important accessory. Make sure every accessory you put in the bathroom has a purpose to avoid a cluttered appearance.

    I really like how you talked about planning the theme to help you pick out bathroom accessories. My wife really likes the beach decor for our house, and I think that she would love to find some bathroom accessories that go along with that. Hopefully we can find her some beach bathroom accessories, or decide one a different theme she’d like to go with! Thanks for the suggestion!
