Updating the look of your bathroom has never been easier – with the new bath and shower accessories on the market even the most dated of bathrooms can be transformed without investing in a major remodel. The addition of a heated towel bar or rack lets you wrap yourself in the comfort of a hot fluffy towel after every bath or shower but it is also a very functional item. A towel warmer can be used to dry fine washables and swimwear, warm baby clothes or blankets and to help towels to dry faster which can reduce the potential for mold and mildew.
Add contemporary shower heads
Improve your bath or shower experience with the addition of a handheld showerhead – most can be installed without the assistance of a plumber and it will add value to your home when it comes time to sell. A handheld showerhead makes it easy to shampoo hair, bathe children, water plants and wash pets plus you can use it to better clean the tub or shower enclosure. Add a shower seat or bench and you can bathe while seated; this is helpful if you have balance or stability issues.
Storage and organization
Storage and organization is key to a clutter-free and safe bathroom; the simple installation of wall mounted liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner dispensers can help reduce the risk of slips and falls in the shower or tub. Corral bath toys in a suction cup wall mounted hammock or place them in a plastic laundry basket which can be stored in the tub when not in use; stay bath toys can pose a possible trip and fall hazard. Select bath mats and rugs with anti-skid backing whenever possible.
