If you have flipped through the pages of a home décor magazine or watched a home makeover show lately, you have probably noticed that bathroom décor and lighting has really evolved.
As homes get larger and rooms increase in size, the bathroom has taken on a new persona – it is:
- part spa;
- part lounge;
- perhaps a gym or personal health center;
- some bathrooms even feature televisions, sound systems, on demand coffee makers, small refrigerators and microwaves.

For most folks this is a bit over the top; a curved shower curtain rod is about as modern an update they’d care to consider.
You always have an opportunity for improvement!
No matter how grand or modest your bathroom may be, there’s always an opportunity for improvement and the simple act of ongoing maintenance means that certain items will need to be replaced from time to time. Experts recommend that shower curtains and liners be replaced frequently, in part to reduce the possibility of mold and mildew. This is a good opportunity to upgrade to top quality shower curtain hooks which allow the shower curtain and liner to slide freely and reduce wear since you no longer need to tug or pull on the shower curtain to get it to move.
One of the most popular modern bath décor solutions is a heated towel rack; they make it easy to enjoy the comfort of a hot fluffy towel after a bath or shower. Heated towel racks are also quite useful – they are great for drying fine washables and swimwear; use them to warm baby clothes and blankets, dry wet mittens and scarves or simply ensure that wet towels dry quickly and completely.
