Outfitting the bathroom should mean more than just hanging a few towel bars and rings; there is the potential to transform even the most mundane of bathrooms into a spa-like oasis with just a little bit of effort and creativity. The addition of a teak shower bench or stool (teak is naturally water resistant), a heated towel rack or a handheld showerhead can dramatically improve the look and functionality of any bathroom.
Most handheld showerheads are designed to be installed without the assistance of a plumber; use them to shampoo hair or enjoy a relaxing water massage. It’s easy to bathe children, wash pets, water plants or even clean the shower stall with a handheld showerhead. If you are dealing with an injury a handheld showerhead lets you direct the spray precisely where you want it. Add a shower seat and enjoy a seated water massage or use it to shampoo your hair while seated for better balance and control ($129.99, Bedbathandbeyond.com).
Between luxury and practical
A heated towel rack or a towel warmer may seem like a luxury but they are actually quite practical. Use a towel warmer to dry swimwear and fine washables, warm blankets or baby clothes or keep winter gear like scarves and mittens toasty and warm. Step out of the bath or shower and surround yourself in the warmth and comfort of a hot fluffy towel – you deserve it.

Experts recommend replacing the shower curtain and liner on a regular basis; be sure to select top quality shower curtain hooks or rings so the curtain and liner slide freely – this will reduce wear and tear. Consider installing a curved shower curtain rod to add more elbow room.
