How to get the most out of your bathroom accessories

Inside any well-designed bathroom, you will find a range of bathroom accessories varying from soap dispensers to shelving.These accessories are not only important for the design aesthetic, but also for the overall functionality of the space.

 

A simple misuse of a bathroom accessory leads to an impractical bathroom layout, and makes a small space seem cluttered and overcrowded.

How to decide on the right accessories for your bathroom

1. To start off, take a good look at your bathroom and analyse the layout and space as a whole. Think of those common accessories used daily in this space - without these essential accessories such as a toilet-roll holder or a soap dish, we would have difficulties reaching the toilet paper behind us or struggle with soap sliding around the basin.

 

2. Once you have chosen the type of accessories you need, it’s time to pick each one out according to your desired look and feel (not forgetting about your bathroom layout of course).

 

3. Now that you have these accessories, keep a space in mind where they would be the most practical. For example; towel rails should be fitted within easy grabbing distance of the bath or shower, and other accessories such as shelving should not obstruct shower and cupboard doors from opening. Think of these accessories in terms of their contribution to maximising your bathroom space in order to maintain a neat, ordered look.  

How to install your new bathroom accessories

There are a few important considerations to take into account when installing bathroom accessories:

  • Have an understanding of how to drill through bathroom tiles ( if need be). Ensure there are no water,  gas pipes or electric cables where you intend to drill.

  • Check that you have the right tools to ensure the accessory is fitted securely into the wall. Accessories such as towel holders may fall out the wall when the plaster crumbles or if they are not put in properly.

Many people turn to glass fitted accessories to avoid the hassle of dealing with the above. Glass fittings are usually built for the purpose of going in and around showers, so they are created with increased durability and usually made from stainless steel.

 

Accessories mounted on glass makes the structure sturdier and allows shower time to be that much more enjoyable because everything you need is at your fingertips. Glass fittings attached to your glass shower or mirrors also help create more space in the bathroom as everything is efficiently placed and out of the way.

 

Choosing your accessories correctly is all about taking care of all the little details that complete your bathroom design. Simply paying attention to your bathroom layout, and how and where your accessories will be installed will definitely go a long way.

Good day,

I have started to renovate my bathroom early in 2010, and as this is the only bathroom in my house, the planning stage took the longest, reason being that I required the bathroom and toilet to be ‘operational’ after every completed task. Therefore, the main working day I decided upon was a Saturday … many Saturdays.

Without elaborating too much on the details of this enormous task, I always ended up with a big ‘question mark’ regarding the bath screen for the in-bath shower. After many hours of research I have stumbled across the website of Aluview, and it contained all the custom-made measurements I initially sought after. Hence, the Diosa bath screen became my first choice since it fitted my requirements like a glove.

As I am situated in Cape Town and Aluview in Gauteng, I initially gave up the possibility of having my dream come true, as this product is unique and only available in the Gauteng region. My perception was that, in general, South African businesses have forgotten what good customer service entails.

After a couple of phone calls, I met ‘two angels’, namely Marge and Barbara. In short, the bath screen was couriered to Cape Town, along came an exceptionally outstanding installation technician, David, whom collected and installed it professionally. To my surprise, Marge contacted me to make sure that I was satisfied with the product delivered and service rendered.

The ‘cherry on the cake’, is that it all happened within 5 days.

I am truly a very satisfied customer.

ind regards,
Juan
