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.

Testimonials

Hi Hilton and Ephriam

I want to applaud and thank you guys tremendously for being such a professional team, your service delivery is just amazing, especially when client services is so pathetic in South Africa.

From the time of quotation to delivery and installation of glass on site was absolute peace of mind.

I am an independent designer in Durban, and have found it effortless to work with your company.

I have done 2 projects so far with you, both carried through over the phone.

Hilton just simplifies communication on measurements and quotations.

Ephriam’s turn around time on ordering and delivery of glass is always earlier than stipulated, which is such a pleasure deadline wise. As well as his follow up on making sure client is satisfied and happy with product and delivery after all is said done, is just what you don’t get anymore.

The two guys, who I profusely apologise on forgetting their names, very pleasant fellas, got on site site and before we could blink, they were done and out of the client’s hair. Job so professionally done and cleaned, no complaint but only praise from the client.

So overall, thank you for making my job effortless all the way from Durban, you are definitely my suppliers of choice(this team in particular) on all my Gauteng clients going forward.
