While you may not want a bathroom that looks like it belongs in a fancy hotel, you certainly want your bathroom to be safe, functional and attractive. Things like lots of light with a combination of wall sconces, overhead and mirror lights make a bathroom look larger and you can see so much better; it is both helpful and safe to have a well-lit bathroom. A lighted magnifying mirror makes it easy to apply makeup while a fogless shower mirror is a helpful grooming aid.
Safety is of the utmost importance in any bathroom – typically moisture and humidity can be a problem as they facilitate mold and mildew and create slippery surfaces which may cause a trip and fall hazard. When selecting things like bath mats and rugs be sure to choose the ones which feature anti-skid backing; select ones with mildew resistant properties too. Grab bars can provide an extra measure of safety and should be installed near the tub or shower and commode if at all possible; safety treads on the tub or shower floor are a good idea.

Experts recommend replacing the shower curtain and liner on a regular basis; this is also a good time to upgrade to top quality shower curtain rings or hooks which slide easily. Most bathroom tubs and showers can benefit with the addition of a handheld showerhead – they are easy to use and do not necessarily require the help of a plumber or handyman to install. Shampoo hair, bathe children, wash pets, water plants and clean the tub or shower enclosure with a handheld showerhead.
